If they drafted a reliever at 11 that's fucking awful.

I wouldn't have minded if the sox drafted a Josh Hader at 11. He does have to be an elite reliever to make it worth it.

Don’t like the pick he had shoulder issues this spring.

That is probably the big issue. Also only 13 starts in college, but I think if they can keep him healthy, it’s a good pick.

A safer bet to make an elite reliever is an elite starter prospect.

Hope I'm wrong, but Crochet is just more pitching arrogance; same issue that led them to Fulmer. At least Fulmer got college hitters out. Crochet throws hard, commands nothing, tricks way fewer than his stuff should.

Andrew Miller was traded for Miguel Cabrera.

He was a Top 15 prospect and was a starter at that time.

I don't hate what I see out of Crochet, if there was a season he really could have been a helium guy

Unequivocally hate this pick, even if it's underslot and they go over in round 2. Though I'm always wrong about pitchers so maybe it's a good thing.

This seems like a reach. 39 on Keith Law’s big board. Hope it works out but I’m not optimistic 

I hope you changed your username solely for this post.

LOL Andrew Miller was one of the 5 best pitchers in college baseball for three years in a row as a starter. He walked people, but he also never gave up runs.

Yeah, maybe they can teach him to command the ball like they did Alec Hansen.

Technically they taught Hansen command, he just forgot the following season.

I'll say this, I trust this system to develop a hard throwing college lefty a lot more than a high school bat

It’s hard to have high confidence in this draft (though some are trying). What may traditionally be a reach may seriously be a value pick here. If what sox saw in fall/few innings was influential on some changes...it’s a risk but this draft has a lot of unknowns from hereon out.

8 WAR out of the 11 spot isn’t a bad floor

I still like Miller from UCLA, but he's falling. This pick has great upside, but also some risk given his limited track record.
