I know we all value minor leaguers differently, but why would you want a guy who could become Miguel Cairo when you could have a guy who could become a TOR arm (Sulbaran, Crabbe) or at least a regular positional player (LaMarre, Lutz, Buckley)?
I just feel like there are Miguel Cairos out there every off-season who do a lot of little things right, but do nothing tremendously who you could sign easily for around the major league minimum.
If I were dealing for prospects, I obviously would like the crown jewels who have tremendous upside and a good chance of getting there, but since those cost an arm and a leg, I would still prefer the guys with major upside with a lower chance of reaching it than a guy with literally no upside and a better chance of reaching it.
What is your thought process on this pick?
