I’m certainly not going to sit here is Brooklyn and try and pass judgement on whether or not these are good draftees.
The truth is draft picks are exciting 99% of the time because of the potential they represent. Sadly a much smaller percentage will become big leaguers let alone impact players but we can always hope.
Nimmo (Nim-Oh) is exciting because he’s a departure from the conservative pick of a post college pitcher. Instead we got a left-handed hitting OF from a high school in Wyoming.
Word is he’s a gamble because he’s so untested
vs quality pitching but his upside is remarkably high.
The best indicator we as fans have to go on here is Sandy Alderson and his front office team. So if they love the kid enough to gamble a first round pick than I love him too.
