Considering the depth of this draft, esp in RHP, if Lindor is at the top of their board when picking then go get him. There will be other power arms at 69 and maybe even 99.
At 11 in this draft he would be considered a much more talented prospect than Mier was when he was taken at 21 in 2009. IOW in 2009 Lindor might have been a top 5 or even 3 pick.
Agreed. And, in addition to that, there is also the beauty of taking "up-the-middle" guys. I know it has been said before, but guys with athleticism like Mier, Peredes, Villar, DDS, or Lindor can play all over the field.
It certainly isn't a bad thing to have multiple guys in the system who are performing well AND have the athleticism to play short, second, or any outfield spot. MUCH easier to have an abundance of those types and move them for a corner player, than the other way around. SEE: Goose for Wallace.
