Where would some of these players assumed to be available slot into your top prospects list?

I think it’s very unlikely, but would be a great haul for the first two picks this year. I’m still very interested to see who is taken after this first round. Two picks in the first 14 really seem to be taking all the attention. Normally I’d say anyone in the first few rounds is going to be an exciting player to watch. I just hope the Pirates are able to fully invest in the latter half of the first 10 rounds this year, and not punt in the hopes of saving money.

Also, Callis sold me on McGuire. McGuire and Ball is my dream scenario.

However, if Trey Ball is available at No. 9, the Pirates have to take him, IMHO. I like McGuire over any of the other position kids because he has a head for the game, has played on the biggest stages, and when he was not Catching he was helping out in the infield for the 18U USA Team. Same reasoning for Ian Clarkin at No. 14. He was the pitcher in the Gold Medal Game in Korea for the 18U USA Team last September and went 6 strong innings. Possibly the best breaking ball in this draft – that is taken from BA.
