that sucks, but Catcher something that we need so i guess i cant completely hate the pick.

id still rather take Aaron Crow, Alex White, Matt Purke, Zach Wheeler or Mike Minor over Sanchez.

Im almost 100% we can still get a high end pitcher with our sandwich pick.

as long as we address First Base early also, i think we will be fine.

Who knows maybe Kyle Gibson will fall to us

its official, Tony Sanchez is a Pirate.

Welcome,

everyone on the MLB network is liking this pick. They say defensively he is almost ready for the majors now, and if the bat keeps coming along like it is that he is gonna be a very solid starting catcher.

I don't know how I feel about the Sanchez pick. A lot of mocks had him going at the end of the first round. The MLB draft is an entirely different beast than the NFL draft, however.

We'll see what else they can address here.

he has moved up of late, one today had him at 12 to Kansas City.

Catcher is something we definately need, and it saves some money for us to grab some people like we did last year. See if we can find a Robbie Grossman, Jarek Cunningham or Matt Hague late in the draft.

So they pass on a pitcher to draft a catcher who wasn't even rated in the top 20.

Good job.

Same old Bucs. So much for that "we'll take the best player available and pay him what he wants" mantra. This guy was picked because he was easy to sign, simple as that. Yeah, he put up decent numbers in college...big deal. That's COLLEGE. I'm not expecting anything out of this guy other than a possible backup catcher.

Yea, he put up big numbers in the ACC, one of the best conferences in the nation.

Im not gonna keep trying to defend the pick, because honestly, i didnt at first. Sanchez is already probably our top catching prospect, and i definately believe he can be a starting catcher in the future. this draft is deep in pitching which is something that i think we needed to go heavy in. we have a couple of picks of coming up i think we are gonna make up for it. maybe take Kendral Volz if he falls


This leaves more money for players who have signability issues and drop because of that. look at how good Robbie Grossman is doing at West Virginia at 19 years old, he dropped to the eighth round because everyone thought he was gonna play at Texas. With that extra money we had we were able to get Grossman to sign. he is probably a top 2-3 round guy, maybe even first if other teams knew they could sign him

But ill say if Mike Minor has a good career im gonna be pissed

I think we should have drafted Zack Wheeler.
