The Cubs have no idea what the Astros will do in the draft

Interesting note from the Cubs, who hold the 2nd overall pick in next month's amateur draft, one pick directly after the Astros. And the Cubs have no idea what Jeff Luhnow will do.

They did a real good job last year hiding their intent. We don't expect to know until the name is called in New York. When you pick second, it's a pretty short list [of candidates]. We'll react to what [the Astros] do. At this time of year, you'll get texts from friends thinking they know how things will fall out. The truth is, only two or three people in the Astros organization know how it's going to happen. We don't expect to know until the last minute.
