Always interesting and informative – love the upside for both Blake Taylor and Cody Dickson, and JaCoby Jones is someone we could see as a 2B, 3B, or OF.

The Pirates system is now developed enough that they can draft for upside and have the time to develop the players properly. This is very different than 4-5 years ago.

With the Pirates gradually improving at the major league level, it will be tough to get a Cole, Taillon, or Bell in future years. They will need some of the lower ranked guys to really develop.

He showed some gap power and excellent speed.

I will never run out of compliments for you guys.

This is easily my favorite site, and I love the PGPlus comraderie.

My ‘sleeper’ is our cat. :)

No. I’m sure they checked out these guys. There could always be another Brandon Thomas, who backed out of a predraft deal last year, but barring that I think everybody taken so far will sign. Any tough signs will go on day three. Can’t afford the loss of pool money from not signing a rd 1-10 pick.

To my knowledge they didn’t draft any guys from HS that were in that catagory.

At the end of day one the discussion was “Will they take (Bell/Allie)?” Then at the end of day two it was “Can they sign (Bell/Allie)?”

They were just day 2 guys because this is the first year they have not had a gazillion compensation picks at the end of the first round, so they were able to move the 2nd round up to the 1st day.

Bell was the 61st pick in his draft, Allie the 52nd in his. Both those pick numbers were later than the Pirates’ 2nd rounder (51) this year.
