so because he was drafted higher , he is better? wonder if mike piazza thinks that way,
also a reliever in college and we are going to transorm him here?why not just draft say gausman or zimmerman?
At this stage, yes... do you think that Piazza was instantly a top prospect when he was a 62nd round pick? No, but he played great and moved up lists quickly. We've got like 20 innings on all of these college relievers, at low levels, so we know pretty much nothing yet.
And, they took the best player available (Buxton), so they couldn't get Gausman or Zimmer.
