Deep question. Here’s another first round pick for the Pirates, this one from 2014, two years longer than Will Craig who we just discussed yesterday.
Very rarely does a sure fire, step right into the majors prospect crop up in the Amateur draft for MLB. When it looks like one is potentially there like Kumar Rocker many in the fan base believe a team not on the upswing should actively try to acquire him. You know, tank.
The scariest part of writing a piece like this is how easy it would be to put together a top 20. This must improve to be blunt, but the Pirates have a new sheriff in town, here’s hoping he can find gold in all five rounds the league is giving him.
