    Jared, I believe that Adkins will be very useful for the Dodgers. His slider and curve are both good and if he gains some speed on his fastball, I believe he can be a good #4 starter.

    I'm hoping he becomes a dependable starter in the majors, though I'm skeptical. It's difficult to add velocity as a 22 year old, so he'll need pinpoint command of his fastball in order to be successful. Hopefully he'll have a strong year in 2008.

    I view Adkins as a taller Randy Wolf. Is it right? Wolf was playing very well when they drafted Adkins, do you think that´s one of the reason they drafted him? I just can´t understand why Logan picked him over Blair.

    Not sure about Wolf as a comparison for Adkins. I'd love it if Adkins had Wolf's strikeout rate. But Adkins relies more on his slider, and that's why I compared him to Justin Orenduff; decent fastball, plus slider, back of the rotation type.

    As for why they picked Adkins instead of Blair, it probably had a lot to do with signability. Adkins signed for slot money, while Blair was looking for a first round bonus (Upwards of $1 million). The Dodgers only went over slot for one player (Tim Sexton). And I don't know if the Dodgers would draft someone because the prospect reminds them of a player on the big club, but it makes sense.
