They need top notch evaluators, not Indians cast offs.

I don’t like Marrero, either, but…. If he’s the best there, take him.

I hope they don’t take that SS Marrero at 8 just for potential. They have Mercer and Hanson in the system, they are not barren of talent at SS in the system as many people think.

And, what would prevent them, the Yankees, Angels, etc, starting to do that?
