Until Manaea went down with the arm injury, I thought the Pirates couldn’t do any wrong if they took any of the guys in the top 15 above(plus Manaea) Seeing as they had two picks through #14, you would have a great option left no matter what. Even without him, you still have that protection of one more player than picks, so even at 14 they should have two strong choices.
If someone throws a surprise in there, then that will make the pick(s) stronger depending on where the surprise goes. I’ve heard the Royals could take Phil Bickford instead of Trey Ball. That would be great for the Pirates.
I just want to see them take the best players they can take. So as long as they stick to the above group I won’t hate the picks, I just might believe they could have done better.

Draft day is always my favorite day. So much uncertainty and so many good players and excitement about who you are going to pick

One might argue if it’s worth the added risk to take one or two guys with a higher ceiling or if we should go with a safer option or players who are more likely to sign.

But this draft class looks pretty deep, so with the 9+14 pick I expect us to add some decent quality to an already very fine farm system.

Thanks and keep up the good work.

Just not who I would pick

Would you want Meadows over him?
