2021 MLB Draft

Post by TheTimeIsNow »

I know the draft has been discussed in difference threads but I figured this would the official place to post picks and reactions.

People seem to think that Mayer will be the pick but nobody is 100% sure. Will be fun to watch.

Does anyone have any favorites that they would like to see the Pirates draft?

I don't know who its going to be, but it has to be the player with the highest ceiling - middle infielder, catcher or pitcher doesn't matter. Let's face it. NH got it right with Cole. Hopefully, BC will do the same.

A guy I would like to see them take is Mason Black from Lehigh. He was Max Kranick's teammate and is from my hometown. He could be around in the third or fourth round.

Henry Davis is a Bucco.

Pirates take the catcher with the 1st pick.

I can live with it. Good defense, good bat, college player so we should see him in the next couple of years. Premium position.

So...since Davis is a college Senior, the Bucs may be able to save some off slot .... may allow them to take a chance on a prospect with signability issues later.

He's not a senior, he is listed as a 3rd year sophomore.

4. Red Sox: Marcelo Mayer, HS - SS
5. Orioles: Colton Cowser, Sam Houston - CF
