Clint Coulter, the other catcher, was overdrafted in my opinion. I've seen that kid crush the ball, but the majority of the time, throw him a hook and he won't touch it. Surprised that he went in the first round. His high school coach, long time MLB'r Tom Lampkin, was hyping him since his frosh year. Usually when a veteran big leaguer like that is broadcasting how amazing this kid is, and how he is a sure fire big leaguer people are going to listen, unfortunately I think Lampkin snake oil sold Coulter. McGuire on the other hand is the real deal no questions about it
Interesting take, it's sick that you get such an insider's look into these things. Coulter definitely had a rough go with the Timber Rattlers to open the season. Reese has such a nice swing, I could definitely see him claiming the dish in Pittsburgh some day.
