Hell has frozen over.

Kudos to the White Sox for taking who they think is the BPA, no matter the level.

I don't mind the pick, he is worthy of it. What I don't like is, we keep swinging and missing trying to develop a Carl Crawford type.

Also worth noting, that despite great tools he's expected to grow out of CF. Corner OF spot for sure.

Indeed. It's kind of concerning that we haven't developed one of these tools guys yet, but of course the risk is greater with these types of players, though the reward potentially is too.

With raw players they take awhile to develop, no? And that trend in the draft is relatively recent? Jared Mitchell is well on his way, hopefully.

without a doubt. Hawkins is also far better than any of those 3. I mean his potential TOWERS Mitchell, but ****, we better change the gameplan in development for these guys.

You are correct. Some of us are getting impatient I suppose. I'm fine with this pick.

Where are Thompson and Walker this year? I don't remember hearing about them recently.
