Carlos Correa is a smart kid with 4.0 GPA, hard worker, very motivated young SS, who wants his family to have a better life, latin players are very motivated by living a hard life.
Trey Williams is falling from the 1st round, so is Nick Williams both would be steals in the 2nd round hopefully Astros are keeping an eye out on this.
this year its really a toss up no bryce harper or stephen strasburg, just a bunch of mostly unknowns,
my top 51. Carlos Correa we need a power hitting shotstop badly2. Byron Buxton we have soooo many great OF's, but a great batter, he is a pitcher too a power arm can throw 98 mph but not interested as a pitcher3. Luca Giolito power arm making a comeback 98 mph4. Mark Appel - late bloomer inconsistent at times5. Mike Zunino power bat at catcher
I think drafting a shortstop is not a high priority. We should not trade Jed Lowrie. Instead we should sign him to a 2-3 year contract. I don't know how long we have him under club control.
Enough of trading our developing players for prospects. Recent trades have strengthened our farm. Good drafts will do so further. Third base is where we are hurting. Chris Johnson has a future as DH with the Astros. We're going to need a MLB first baseman very soon. Carlos Lee is not the answer.
"Carlos Correa we need a power hitting shotstop badly"--------------
No team really NEEDS a power hitting SS but I'm sure they're nice to have. SS is a defense first position but they have to at least be competent w/the bat.
I'm not really advocating drafting Correa but I would rather draft him over Appel or Buxton.
I predicted he looks a lot like Alex Rodriguez I was right, just knew there were comparisons of Alex to Carlos were true.
