Rodon, could possibly be a starter next year.

Rodon or Kolek, depending on which one's available. If neither, hope Hahn makes the bold Churro pick.

In a perfect world, I'd prefer Aiken but it sounds like he is going #1. So I'll be happy with either Rodon or Kolek, I don't really know enough to solidly differentiate between the two.

Prefer Rodon due to the college experience; probably closer to making the big club than the high school athletes. Also, Cuban ancestry.

I'm offended by the lack of churro options in this poll.

Let the churro crap end.

I agree with Rodon because of the experience, but with all of the arm over-usage and injuries, I wouldn't say no to a high school kid (less miles).

Are you the fun police or something? It's just a funny little aside to the polls- nothing to get aggravated about.

I think it will not be who the sox pick but who falls in their lap. Now if they do not take any of the top 3 then they do actually pick. Probably Kolek falls to them which sounds like a good thing.

Any of the top 3 pitchers would be fine with me but I think Aiken and Rodon will be gone so they'll take Kolek.

I think Aiken goes first, then Rondon, so Kolek to the Sox...which works for me.

Watching the MLB Network preview show, they had Kolek as their #2 guy, behind Aiken only.
They see this as a 3 man draft, in the top tier, so the Sox might have won last season by losing just more than the Cubs.

Altho Kolek seems to throw across his body a bit, and does remind a bit of Kerry Wood, but with a much stronger frame/body.

Give me the next Nolan Ryan...Kolek.
