    If Cole does get selected do you see it likely that Cole starts in High A next season along with Taillon? 
    It would seem logical that those two get together, with Cole getting some minor league experience help from Taillon, and Taillon getting some pitching experience from Cole.
    With Allie and Heredia then joining together at low A next year…

    With Trevor Bauer being a potential Top 3 pick and having nearly 2x the amount of strikouts, a far superior W-L record, hitters batting nearly .100 points less against him and giving up nearly 2 ER less/game, and tops out at around 97, why is Garret Cole the ‘no brainer’ choice and getting all the talk?  It isn’t like Bauer is a 2nd round talent who is just having a super year.  They potentially could be the first 2 pitchers taken, so why no love for Bauer from the ‘experts’ in regards to who the Bucco’s take? 
    I’m not grasping this!
