Andy knows WAY more about specific draft prospects than I do but I think he’s off base with the Cardinals strategy come draft time. I’d expect them to select at least one raw high upside talent that is going to require a large signing bonus. They need another blue chip position player for the farm system. Rebuilding depth with college picks isn’t going to do much for a system that’s got a lot of marginal major league talent in AAA right now.
