Re: Reds approach to this years draft
In the first round you don't pick on needs. Or rather if you do, your playing the fool.
Needs of baseball teams drastically change over time. What looks like a team weakness now could be a strength in three years - you just never know. The pick your spending the most money on you make the best possible choice. That is - the safest choice with highest upside. In the later rounds you work on needs, but the early picks are your big money picks- history shows that those have the highest percentage of making the big show - make it count.
