I have to admit, in my narrow knowledge of things baseball, I think the Pirates actually made the right move picking Gerrit Cole first overall. I realize Hultzen is probably more polished, but Cole sounds like he has a higher upside. What really surprised me was that the Pirates willingly picked a guy that they KNOW is gonna be expensive. Signability (or the chance of getting a guy on the cheap) didn't even seem to enter into it. If they keep making moves like this, I might have to start posting on the "Does anyone care about the Pirates" thread.
