This one sits behind a paywall. His take on the Pirates at 1.8: Devin Marrero "Most people saw Marrero as a top-five pick coming into the season, but he didn't have a great year for the Sun Devils. However, the entire industry seems to think the Pirates want him here. I have also heard them on Mississippi State right-hander Chris Stratton" It could be worse. But this draft strategy, if it plays out as Law predicts, is Littlefieldesque in conception. In fact, if the Pirates were to take Marrero at 1.8 next month, I'd say that this pick should alter the way fans view the 2009 Draft class. Instead of taking at face value team claims that it took Tony Sanchez with the 1.4 pick in order to conserve resources it intended to spend later, a Marrero pick makes the Sanchez pick look consistent with a pitching and defense first team building strategy.
