Also, the logic of the 2011 draftees not arriving until 2015 makes me believe that the 2012 draft pick would not arrive until 2016 so what is the hurry in drafting position players? The logic is lost on me. We say it time and again around drafts. Go with the highest rated player on your board, not a position need. You can find room for good players.
Agreed. These bats won't even be in the MLB for a few years to help the Pirates. Take the BPA.
I'd take a few more years of Xavier Nady type pickups and trading a pitcher for a young bat if we can eventually get our **** together.
