However, I'm more interested to see what happens in the later rounds. Under Dave Littlefield, the Pirates rarely, if ever, went above slot in the later rounds, which is how Nate McLouth, Ian Snell, and Zach Duke were signed prior to Littlefield coming on board. Hopefully a solid draft can begin to rebuild the depleted system.
Mark, would you prefer Beckham so you have another SS to root for
PEDRO, PEDRO, PEDRO!
