draft

This piece about Gerrit Cole makes me feel significantly better about the Pirates' position atop the draft this year.  Over the past few months all we've heard is how deep this draft is and that picking anywhere in the top 5-6 picks would provide the same value.  Basically Law's article compares Cole favorably to Strasburg, perhaps even declaring that he likes Cole better than Strasburg given Cole's pedigree dating back to high school.  After watching Cole in the CWS last year I thought this guy was a stud and Law's article reaffirms my belief that the Pirates should express no hesitation in selecting him first overall.  What a loaded rotation they could possibly have if even some of their recent picks pan out.
