When in doubt about who is best you go for the one at position of need. I think we've seen that the last couple years when we've been drafting much needed position players at catcher and third and first, etc in drafts where a bunch of players ranked out very similarly.

With the system as deep as it is now I think you absolutely draft best available regardless of position. Yes, the system is weak in middle infielders compared to other positions now but I would not let that drive my draft. If best available is a pitcher or an outfielder where we are very strong then that is who you draft.

It's all about stockpiling quality.
