Hi Josh! Callis, Law, and James Fox all had new mocks this week. They all mentioned the Sox interest in Indiana prep SS, but probably future 3rd baseman, Colson Montgomery. Looking at your draft average rankings, Montgomery is ranked #71. Taking Colson Montgomery at 22 seems really aggressive. If the Sox were to go that route, could they go underslot and push pool money back picks? I’ve read this draft is light on elite talent at the top, yet is deeper than normal for what would be rounds 3-5. What would you think of taking Montgomery and then spreading their extra pool space and picking up several prep players with their early selections?
