    This is the deal.

    If the Pirates take Hultzen or Cole, literally ANYONE, but Rendon, he had BETTER be the pick.

    If they take Rendon (I will die a little inside) then we take Cole or Bundy, no questions asked, if they reach on a guy like Starling or Lindor, I will cry.

    Rendon is the obvious pick if he falls and he checks out medically but id be fine with Bundy even if he is a prep pitcher.

    I have those same concerns so far this year he has only played defense twice.

    I'd rather we reach on a power hitter than take a pitcher. We might pick up that Bubba kid. But from what I hear Rendon is healthy he should be our pick if he is there. I'd be pissed if he wasn't.

    Reaching for a player would be stupid you take BPA even if it is a pitcher.

    There are genuine signability concerns for Rendon.

    There is no chance in hell we wouldn't sign him.

    Disagree. He has the option of going back to school, his value is down, and Boris won't be settling for anything less than his peak value, which he could easily recover next year sans shoulder injury.

    Ugg, I never really thought about that. Good point though. With his injury issues he could be a ***** to try and sign because the GM's desired price point will surely be well below what Rendon and Boris will hold out for, and with Rendon only being a junior he can/would likely go back to school if the contract wasn't enough.

    The only thing is that after the Paxton ordeal I can see some draftees telling their agents that they don't want to do what Paxton did, as it hurt him in the end. And since Boris already has a reputation amongst all the GMs, he's probably got some athletes under him who might object to taking such a route, especially if you were drafted #2... it doesn't get much better than that, and like with Paxton, you face getting drafted a couple rounds later the next time simply because you could now be a pain to sign.

    The other thing is that with his injury issues he might think he would truly be better off in signing a bigger contract if he can have a healthy senior season at Rice.

    The picture for us drafting Rendon is getting less... pretty. Now I can see why some draft pundits were claiming Rendon might fall to the fourth or fifth pick.

    Exactly! Always take BPA regardless of depth
