  1. This would be great to see. I know a lot of people are upset with the pick, but him playing this season would be really encouraging.
  2. Nope. I defended the strategy all year until this draft. I don’t even look at where we would pick next year anymore. I just assume we will pick the player around the 10-15 area, even if we are 1st. Sorry for the bitterness, but I’m not a fan of tanking the major league club and then not taking the best player available in the draft.
  3. Yeah, I tried to stay positive during this process but I’ve lost it. I don’t understand this draft at all. I feel like we went underslot with our first pick and never used the money to go overslot. The Pirates draft just makes me even more upset. One thing that was keeping me interested this year was draft positioning, but honestly what’s what’s the point in that anymore. I defended last years strategy because it made sense with 5 rounds and we used the money. I don’t see it this year. I do like Norby a lot, but that’s really the only pick I liked. I hope I’m wrong, but this really put a downe
  4. I don’t know a lot about Norby yet, but what I’m seeing and hearing so far this sounds like a good pick. I was surprised we didn’t take a high upside high schooler here, but I’m still hoping for that the next few picks.
  5. I would love Will Taylor, but I’m guessing his price tag is really high.
  6. I love Davis, but this would be my best case scenario. I’m not sure why he seems to be sliding suddenly right before the draft.
  7. I would love to get Carson Williams with our second pick. I hope you’re right on this one.
  8. I don’t think people assume that at all. I actually feel like people have their guard up on them a little because we’ve had trouble developing pitchers. At this point they are just prospects. Both could be quality or both could fail miserably. You have to be a little excited to add them to the rotation though.
  9. If it works out like this and we can get Lawlar to sign a respectable contract, I would be ecstatic. I’ve seen a lot of drafts lately with Lawlar falling past us to Arizona. If we were to pull the trigger on Lawlar, you can argue we got the best player in the draft at 5.
  10. Batting .467 for the season.
  11. I’m going to guess Davis or Watson in that order. I think Lawlar will be in the board and we will pass.
  12. I’ve seen 2 of the bigger mocks with the same 4 players first and Lawlar available. I have wanted Davis as the pick for awhile, but I would love it if Lawlar was there and we took him instead.
  13. I’m confused by the title and post, but I would be happy with Davis or Watson. Watson may be small, but if you watch video on him, he has a really nice swing that I think will just get better. I don’t think either can be considered not taking the best player available because in my opinion only Meyer, Lawlar and Leiter should be ranked higher.
