Jim Callis‏ tweeted that he felt that LSU’s Raph Rhymes will go in the 4-6th round range… Rymes is a pure hitter and leads the universe in hitting:  .500/.534/.628. This is not a home run hitter. He is someone you simply can’t get out.  ESPN said  Rhymes hitting 15-15 w/ man on 3rd & <2outs. Do you have any idea how big that stat is? He’s 6-0, 180 from Monroe, Louisiana. The Pirates had drafted Rymes in the 40th round of the 2011 draft, but he would no part of it. He is now leading the nation in hitting. Good decision, Raph.

"Top MFers" got a chuckle out of me.
