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 was just reading something in Sports Illustrated about the Red Sox. I think it said they started becoming more successful in the draft when they stopped trying to draft people who fit a specific mold. It said something about not shying away from High School players. I tossed the SI after I read it, so sorry about the vagueness.

Anyway, as long as we draft the very best player on our board (despite age, position, etc) and continue to invest in the draft like we did last year, I'll be happy.

I do like Hultzen, though.
