2015-12-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)have you seen any of the 2015 draftees that make you think they were either considerably over or under drafted?
(JoeRandom from San Jose)
Had mixed feelings about Tate. The slider's filthy, but while he's a physical monster it's a very high-effort delivery and I worry about the starting potential. I saw him early in his transition from the pen, so I'll discount the velocity slide as his start progressed, but I thought he was one of the weaker 1st pitchers off the board in recent memory. Ponce ended up going right around where I thought he should after some rumblings about a first round future, so thought the Brewers did okay there. Thought the Bucs did very well snagging Kevin Kramer 62nd overall. Don't think he's a SS, but all he did all spring was spray line drives around the yard every time I saw him play. I'm looking forward to putting eyes on Taylor Ward, who was a pick that got roundly mocked/criticized at the time but seems to have solid defensive chops and at least a puncher's chance at developing his bat based on early pro reports I've gotten. Should see him next year at IE. (Wilson Karaman)
