Fun article. I'm not really concerned with the #2 pick. I figure the guy we end up taking (Appel, Merrero, Giolito, Zunio, etc) will be a very good prospect. I'm more interested in who slips to us in the supp and early 2nd round. I think those four picks could really inject some talent into the system. But the new slotting system might make high school players (that we usually target) more likely to go to college instead of signing. Both Boyd and Harrison signed for over slot last year. Not sure if either would have signed under the new plan. On the other hand, college pitchers we usually target shouldn't be any different.
