In baseball, this is the worst possible way to draft. You always need to take the best player (you believe), available... always, regardless of position.


Agreed. Explaining what NH and co. were doing/thinking isn't the same as advocating it.


Agreed. I was just making a statement, that's all.


The only draft pick I regret NH making is JT over Machado.

I like JT, and Cole was good enough in black and gold, but w/ Machado the ceiling of this club would have at least one WS. Despite his ceiling, it was clear that JT was at least three years away; it didn't fit the timeline of the corps at the time, and injuries made it even more so.

With Machado manning SS/3B, Pedro could have been traded (or packaged) at his peak value in 2012/13 for arms, or other pieces to round out a WS-bound squad.
