I have been calling for the Pirates to take this kid since rankings came out early last year. I love his swing from the left side and might be the best player to come out of this draft, when he fully develops in a couple years. He may take longer to get there but he might very well end up being the best player out of this draft. I don’t understand why people do not want this kid, I’m glad NH seems to like him a lot and understand and sees the talent this kid has.

Now for the 1 b.) pick would love to go college bat in DJ Peterson or Hunter Renfroe but if both are gone and they very well might be, I would go high school again and take LHP Ian Clarkin. The best curveball in the draft and might end up being a Clayton Kershaw light in the future with almost the same mechanics. Now these picks are both more future picks then 2 years away from helping the ball club kinda picks but believe they would be well worth the gamble, as the Pirates farm is only going to get deeper and better. The farm now looks great and the Pirates are becoming a franchise that seems to be able to turn around starting pitching and relief pitchers in both the majors and the minors as a lot of players have worked out well for them over the past couple years. Love were this franchise is going…
