The BA note is a bit misleading. A lot of that #2 ranking came from 1 guy not being healthy at the time of the draft. If healthy, Lucas Giolito is probably the best pitcher, if not best player in the draft this year. I wanted the Bucs to take him instead of Appel, but that unfortunately didn't happen. From the sounds of things at draft time, his injury didn't seem to be something that would hamper him long-term. We will see next spring.
