Who do you think the pirates will take...

im really hoping for Tim Beckham, hes a shortstop with power like a young A-rod, but could be a risk since he is coming out of high school. but we need a SS to replace wilson soon, Bixler is good but i rather see him at 2nd base.

the other guy i wouldn't mind getting is Pedro Alvarez the 3rd baseman form Vandy i think...very good player, great attitude and some scouts say he can be a 50/50 guy.

i would love to see at least one of these guys since we have the 2nd pick..hopefully.

I'm going to have to scout out some of these players first. JUST DO NOT GO PITCHER THIS YEAR IN ROUND 1!!!!

i think pedro alvarez could be our pick. most people had him as the top rated prospect going into the year until he broke his wrist. he is now jus getting going again. with him being a third baseman i dont see the Rays going after him after signing E Longoria to a long contract. if for some reason the Rays take Alvarez i would want Yonder Alonso from Miami Fl. he is a 1B who can hit for power, average and has speed, has like 20+ SB in his career at miami.
