Drafting pitching vs. hitting?
By my unofficial count, it looks like the Reds grabbed 8 pitchers and only 3 position players in the first 10 rounds. And one of the 3 position players could end up switching to pitcher, which would make it 9 to 2 in favor of pitchers.
Is this an abnormally heavy emphasis on pitching?
If so, does it indicate that the Reds view the organizational depth as weaker in pitching than in hitting?
Does being a mid-sized market with a lot of future salary tied up in a few position players mean the organization has to focus on drafting and developing pitchers even more so than normal?
Or is it more likely just a random occurrence based on the Reds drafting BPA regardless of position?
