Get the best stud arm available and hope to strike gold like they did with Sale.
I would generally agree -- being a strong pitching, speed, and defense advocate -- but this team needs a top position player in the worst way, and hopefully one that develops into a star. Good position players are also important for fan engagement. Building gate around a pitcher is a tough thing to do.
Can the Sox develop a top position player is the question. Maybe they can get someone at the 3 pick who is a natural and does it on his own, though, admittedly, finding a fool-proof pick is near impossible.
