Re: Yasmani Grandal
I think that the reasoning for the pick is quite simple. Catcher is a difficult position to fill. Catchers have a lot of value, especially if they can hit. And more so if they switch hit. Reds do have Mesoraco but have been thin at catcher in the organization.
I think that's probably the reasoning - Grandal's value is high because he plays a premium position on the field. Now let's sign him.
