Re: 2012 MLB Draft order
Marrero would be a pick similar to Grandal. A polished college guy that gives the Reds a surplus at a critical position. In other words, a pretty much guaranteed trading chip, at least. I'd be fine with that -- and I kind of like the idea that they'd end up with a guy they drafted 3 years ago who went on the eclipse almost every other high schooler who went on to college that year.
I'm really not sweating who the top pick is this year. I trust Buckley and his staff -- the track record is very good -- and the 2 supplemental picks will make this crop a decent one for the club, most likely.
