You know what's worse than a 5 round draft? A 2 round draft. 

I will take a huge upside 2nd round pick over two or three average picks 100 percent of the time

True, but I’m good with Crotchet & Kelley and whatever UDFAs we can snag.

Yeah I like Kelley, but not that much.

Another punted pick.

At least this had really good college numbers. The fact that he needs to miss this year due to UCL reconstruction doesn't really matter because none of them will be playing this year.

Is he really a high upside 2nd rounder though? A lot of scouts had questions about his now body/stuff. Dude doesn't have a breaking ball either.

No way Crotchet is over-slot IMO.  I could see full slot, but even that would be somewhat surprising to me.

Yeah I'm holding out hope for the 5th round.  I don't believe they really needed to give **that** much money to Crochet and Kelley.

I fully believe Kelley gets a ton. There’s a reason he dropped.

Yes he’s a huge upside guy in the scheme of things

A typical 40 round draft is really more like an 8 round draft anyway.  There are like maybe 5 guys in the first 10 rounds and then a few overslots.

Give me Abel and 4 guys with a pulse over what the White Sox are doing.

Didn't the Sox draft Crochet, Kelley and 2 guys with a pulse so far?

Okay, guys with a shot not guys with a pulse. Doesn't help that I hate the Crochet pick.

If Crochet is really going to be paid at slot and we're going to pay Kelley, it makes sense that #3 and #4 aren't nationally ranked in any publication.
