Underrating draft picks


I have seen so many posta saying that the pirates will have about 7-8 prospects in the top 100. Now, what your not understanding is, sure players like Holt, Dodson, Alderson,etc could make a big stride, but your forgetting about the second round picks and beyond. Dont get me wrong, I project Rendon in the top 5 next year its just that theyre are so many elite players drafted after the first round.

For example, look at Rudy Owens. In the previous post about Owens vs. Leake, they said he was drafted 28th round and has similar stuff to eighth overall pick Leake! How about Mike Lamb- 5th round or even Andy Pettitte in the 22nd round.

Im sure i could go on to name a hunred of other greats that were drafted after the first and even second rounds. All Im saying is, with the right scouting and choosing we could have our best draft yet. The only thing stopping us, is the Rays sandwich picks. [Jk]

I also wanted to bring the topic of the bullpen. I wanted to know who your'e 7 guys are in the bullpen. For me, its Meek, Hanrahan, Biemel, Veros, Karstens, Ascanio, and Hart.
