I agree doug. I was just saying that given the relative dislike of HS pitchers in the first round from some, taking a tall pitcher is much worse. I would still rather have a college pitcher in the first round assuming he has the talent and results, just as long as he isn't too tall.
The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.
