Re: 2012 MLB Draft order
With everyone in our rotation Under contract for multiple years, and 4 of our 5 best pitching prospects in AA (or very close to being in AA), I'm not sure why we're looking at college arms like Heaney and Wacha. I'd much prefer a college OF or 3B or a high upside HS player (pitcher or hitter).
It would be one thing if a college pitcher who is a top 5 prospect in the draft falls to 14 (hence clearly the BPA), but why target guys that are supposed to go in the 15-20 range and there is no clear need for them in the system right now?
Some had Wacha in the running to go #1 overall a few weeks ago. It's a cliche that you can never have enough pitching, and it's true.
