He’s athletic enough to play SS for a number of years. He’s got a live bat and plenty of power. He’s moving up on a lot of teams’ boards.

Roache — a whiff machine.
Stroman — Pirates like their pitchers tall.
Appel — please, God, no
Giolito — a steal
Almora — an overdraft
Fried & Smoral — they’d be iffy but both have potential too
Correa — my wish pick
Marrero — please, God, no
Cecchini — may be a viable alternative to Correa
McCullers — supposedly has a bad attitude and a labored delivery
Wacha — Littlefield would have taken Wacha even if Giolito, Correa, Buxton and Ted Williams were on the board

Roche doesn’t belong in the top 10.

You never know for sure.

You take the best player available, regardless of what their age is and where they are from.
