1. I really don't think they would.
2. I bet the Pirates would rather have Addison Russell than Winker. Or Wacha. Or Berrios.
The 2012 draft, at this point, is not having too many people come out and just fall flat on their faces at this point. Even guys like Winker who have come out and basically just beat up all competition they have faced, he can only move up so much because other guys are also doing pretty well and Winker is certainly limited by the fact that he is a left fielder, so he has to rake.
