2012-06-05 16:00:00 (link to chat)Was James Ramsey a guy other teams were looking for in the first round? Can he stick in center?
(Brody from Iowa)
He was not. He was more of a supplemental first or second round pick, but while the Cardinals were happy to get Wacha to fall to them, they knew he was going to demand extra money. Ramsey helps them balance things out. (Kevin Goldstein)
