    Using the picks of Alonso and Grandal as parallels, I'm siding with the "can't make that inference from the pick."
    Can't win with 'em

    Can't win without 'em

    No. He can still return to college and pitch another year.

    I'm siding the other way in this case just because it's Montero and I think he IS a DH.

    He seemed like a super impressive kid in the little pre-show piece they did on him. At least he's not a Card!

    Appel is gonna drop now. I love Correa. Best player in the draft.

    I wouldn't want Appel to fall to the Reds - they'd have to shoot their whole budget to sign him

    Nice pick for the Padres. Talented lefty. Wouldn't mind the Reds picking his friend.

    I want Appel if he's still there at 14. I'd roll the dice on signability. And if he doesn't sign, two first-round picks next year for the Reds.

    I agree about drafting Appel if he was there at #14.

    I can see that - and now you get 2 years to get a pick signed not just 1.

    Hmmm - if you couldn't sign him - can you use the rest of the budget on other players then?
