A Very Different Take on the Pirates' Draft

"I like what they did." Thus spake John Manuel about the draft of the Pirates. He joined J.J. Cooper and draft maven Clint Longnecker on the Baseball America Draft Podcast Part II.

To hear this very different take on the Pirates' draft take a listen to the Baseball America Draft Podcast Part II. It's available on the BA website. The the Pirates' part starts about minute 49. Another quote, "I'm in on what the Pirates did." This is a very different take than one sees on local blogs, such as Tim Williams saying "The Pirates made some very strange selections with their first two picks, making the first day look like a bust," or Charlie's assessment, "Bucs have unconventional day one."

Now that opinion has settled down a bit, many people appear to be OK with the Cole Tucker pick, but one can find a lot of unease with the Connor Joe choice. The BA folks loved it.
