The Boston Red Sox are a notoriously great team and they never pick in the top 10. Look what they say about the Red Sox they take a Frazier, Meadows type and if somehow Minnesota doesn’t take Kohl Stewart they would pounce on him in an instant. Like the reason the Pirates and co. pick in the top 10 every year is bc they take the low ceiling college guy and he is just blah or even worse BUST. I’m not against taking college guys high ceiling guys like Gray and Appel are guys any team would take 1-2, but the point is you take the best guy regardless of position bc you don’t know what is going to happen down the road. The best way for me to put is this. If I had Bonds-Cutch-Clemente as my starting MLB OF I would still take an OF if he was the best guy. Why? If he can hit, we will find a spot for him.
