    I'm betting the Pirates take him now.

    Does it do so more than him going to college and dominating there? I don't think it does.

    Maybe. Maybe not. I'd draft him, play a bit of hardball, then take the pick again next season if need be.

    Those supplemental picks really help at this point-- you could then gamble big-time with them, taking high talent, hard-sign prospects.

    Or you could go with Giolito (my personal favorite) and his 100 mph fastball. (When healthy.)

    No offensive player really jumps out at you-- though you might be able to argue Courtney Hawkins, the HS OF, if he drops that far.

    Wow, Pirates get Appel. They are building a nice farm system of top arms.

    Pirates must be grinning from ear to ear to have Appel fall to them.

    At some point you'd figure that somebody is going to be willing to go over budget to draft Appel, I mean you're drafting at the back end of the draft you'd figure a #1 pick is worth way more than two #25 picks.

    Wow. Appel fell to the Pirates. Could you imagine a rotation with Cole, Taillon, Appel?

    Pirates are going to be rich in pitching.

    Appel if Pirates can sign him will have 3 great young arms in the near future.
