Lol I also got Strasburg in a draft day deal. It all works out for me :). Though I see the Nationals taking a more David Price approach with Stras by keeping him in the minors and working on his other pitches until he is 100% ready to come up to the majors and stay there.
Yeah I know. But it wouldn't be surprised me if they did draft him. I do like Bryce Bentz as well, but 2 might be too high for him. Jameson Tallion would also be good, but I am not sure if the Pirates really like high school arms in the first.
I think Pirates will repeat what they did last year. They go after senior player for cheap in the first round and then gather a bunch of talents with signability for next 5 or 7 rounds. I like this approach because it is a lot of cheap to go after signability prospects in the midst of the draft. Pirates can gamble top talent in the first round and gets 1st round compensation next year but it will delay their development process as they need more talents under contract in the system. Because of that, Bentz is definitely out of question. Tallion could be available after 1st round for Pirates.
