With a 64-98 overall finish, the Rockies separated themselves from Chicago (who finished 61-101) and Houston (55-107) by winning six of their final ten games of the regular season. According to predictions over at MyMLBDraft.com, Colorado is projected to select outfielder Austin Meadows with the third pick. Chicago, according to the site, is predicted to take Arkansas pitcher Ryne Stanek while the Astros are slated to nab Mark Appel, a pitcher out of Stanford University, with the top overall pick.
