I like the idea of getting more big strong college pitchers.  Those guys seem to succeed at a higher rate than the skinny guys or the high schoolers, even if the upside is lower.  The potential for complete busts is lower.  I think once we get good at the MLB level, we should take more risks in the draft.  I hate the 'let's suck for 10 years and get lots of high upside/high bust potential draft picks' team building strategy.

We do need talent everywhere, though, so I wouldn't be opposed to adding some big time bats.  Rizzo has drafted several MI recently.  Maybe he grabs a few more of them.  He likes bigger-framed players there, too.  Those types can always switch positions if they're not suited to SS or 2B.
