Being the best draft choice made last year?
Arguably, the stuff isn't top-tier, but he couldn't have gone to a better team, with a tried and true system and one of the greatest catchers of the era to help him along. As a Cardinal, it is very easy to see him having a long and illustrious career. So they potentially got a TORP, who is contributing in a major way in less than a year. It can certainly be argued that he wouldn't be having this success if he were drafted by probably 90% of the other teams, but given the circumstances, do you think he was the best selection made last year?
