I like the value of all three of the Pirates picks although I do think they passed on better players with the last two picks of Day 1.

Do you agree ? Has no other team drafted as well or even better than us so far ?

Plenty of good talent here, though I don’t think we could pull together enough money to sign either Jones or Serrano.

I really like Denney, Tellez or Wahl. I think Denney is a Mike Napoli clone who can easily move to 1B at some point. His power doesn’t come along often.

I don’t know why any of these three fell this far. I’d take any one of them in the 3rd.

His father was such a gamer and a great player.

And Matt Hague got involved in the tweets as well as he visited the same highschool as Reese McGuire.

This looks tremendous, the team spirit seems to be there already and our picks appear genuinely excited about getting drafted by Pittsburgh.
What a pleasant change from last years dilemma with Mark “it’s not all about the money” Appel who didn’t even acknowledge the fact that the Pirates drafted him.

I don’t mean to wish ill on people and I certainly wouldn’t want to wish an injury or a terrible professional career on anyone, but Appel made it extremly hard to root for his success from the perspective of a Buccos fan…

I’ll be rooting like mad for Meadows and McGuire though, I think it will be pretty ease to sign those two and I don’t expect us having to offer them more than slot money. Do you guys think Appel will be happy with slot money as number one pick overall or will he be a nightmare to sign for the Astros as well ?

I have known him since he was 6. I coached and umpired him. That would be awesome. He would be a great story as well since both of his parents passed.
