completely agree. In fact im willing to bet if you could trade your picks we probably would of traded out of that spot and waited a couple picks to take Sanchez. The Pirates got themselves a solid baseball player who looks like he will be able to help out our big league team.

If there were any other player i wouldnt of minded us taking would of been Drew Storen out of Stanford. Kicking major ass in the minors right now, probably will be the first player from this draft class to play in the majors, maybe this year.

But im happy as hell with T Sanchez, the way he is looking, he could be one of those rare two way Catchers.

BTW, i wish Charlie Morton could pitch like this, what i did in a game of MLB The Show
