Well he doesn't seem like to bad of a guy. He has his head on straight and it sounds like he will be pretty good behind the plate, but i was hoping to come out with either a pitcher or a power bat this year, and i think we flopped in the 1st round. One thing i was thinking is that he might have been there at our pick in the 2nd round.

The Pirates have shown that they have not ability to pick a good pitcher in the first round. Sanchez was the best catcher available. It is obvious that the Pirates will have to be a player in FA and trades within the next few years to get a few good quality pitchers. I am sure that they are also hoping that some of the ones they received in recent trades will pan out.

In my personal opinion, when a player says he specializes in defense what it really means is he can't hit. Back when I played ball I was a defensive wiz!

I'm going to go way out on the limb here. It seems as though most are not happy with the Sanchez selection.

After Doumit, who do the Pirates have as a future catcher? At this point, I don't think Doumit will be the future catcher for the Pirates.

Sanchez is 21, 6'1" 220 pounds who hit his Senior year at Boston College .346 during 228 At Bats with 79 hits. 14 of those were Home Runs, and 19 Doubles. He scored 63 Runs along with collecting 51 RBI's.

His strength is suppose to be on the defensive side, however he has shown his bat can be potentially a huge strength also.

Considering what the Pirates have, I think the choice was a good one. And I'll also go on record as saying we'll be seeing him in the not too distant future as our starting Pirate Catcher. I think he'll be part of a productive starting Pirate lineup.

Wow!......how was that for going out on the limb! :o :lol:

He has potential to be a very good player, but you need to draft a more talented player with the 4th pick in the draft.
