I really like Pedro Alvarez, but if this guy can be as good as advertised I think we made the right move.

Thoughts?




Alvarez cost himself the first overall pick in the draft with his signing demands and his play after the injury. They were 1A and 1B before the season with Alvarez being the closer more power driven player where as Beckham was the better set of tools. We made the right choice seeing how Alvarez's 2008 season has gone.

I love the Lobstein pick in the 2nd round, I just hope we don't regret not picking Melville in the 4th round.

Is Jeremy Beckham good as well? I have seen some people like him a lot :-?



Jeremy is not a prospect, but he could be a good pick for us. If he helps settle Tim down any at all being so far away from home, he will be worth the money we pay him.
