He just turned 19 and his power sure would look nice in our system. I know our recent experiment of signing lots of projectable arms in one draft doesn’t look so great right now, but any reason why we wouldn’t try something similar with power hitting prospects? Look what M. ADAMS of Slippery Rock has turned into for the Cardinals with a low round pick. I just don’t understand drafting speedy defensive type players anymore, those guys can be found much more easily on the FA market, which is why Neal should be fired IMO if he draft Marrero

Nobody really knows how a player will develop until he reaches the majors.
That doesn’t mean I’ve lost interest in the farm or the Pirates or this site just that I’m not holding my breath hoping this or that guy falls to the Pirates because whatever happens it will take years and a lot of good fortune for that player to become a solid major leaguer and usually the player that everybody was hot to get turns into less than was hoped for.

Zunino is a no brainer if he falls to the Bucs. Look at the difference Barajas has made to the Pirate pitching staff!

It’s easier to find a catcher who can catch and hit some — Barajas and Doumit anyone? — than it is to find a shortstop who can hit a ton.
