Nothing that I've read has the Sox linked to a pitcher. Broadway, McCullough, and Poreda three years in a row. They need an impact bat, and drafting this high, with the crop of hitters that is available, you need to grab a bat. Beckham or the first basemen. Castro is the 3rd best catcher in this draft and had two suspect years prior to this. If Beckham, Smoak, Hosmer, Alonso, and Wallace are all somehow gone by the 8th pick, maybe they'd grab Castro, but you need to go best player available and I don't think that would be Castro.
