They drafted Melindy because Gormley was there and they watched him a lot and thought Melindy would be able to carry the mail on his own. In his first full year, he hasn't been able to do it. And from what you're saying, it's been rough. But I think the Yotes brass expected Melindy to get a lot of exposure in a lot of situations in Moncton, so they took a chance on him in the 3rd round.

This was our new Amateur Scouting Director, Rick Knickle's first draft, and they probably reached on the 2nd (Martinook) and 3rd (Melindy) round picks. But for both, they had reasons why they thought these guys would be good fits to the farm system.
