Don't pencil in any prospect as if they're locks to make the Red Sox. If you're used to the hockey draft I'm sure that #7 looks tempting but the draft is very, very much a crapshoot in baseball. There's very little certainty, even if you draft high.
Agreed. Baseball draft is so tough, do you gamble on a HS kid who is 4-5 years away from the majors, but who knows if he will ever even come close. Do you go with a college pitcher who likely has only #2 or #3 starter potential.
