Welcome to Seattle, Nick
I’m not worried about you – you’ll sign.
I like the Nick Franklin pick for the M’s (and, tooting my own horn here, I believe I’m the first one who put the M’s on him last week) as a switch-hitting shortstop with average tools across the board, giving him the ability to stay at shortstop long term and provide some nice offensive abilities. He might not be a super high upside guy, but he’s got a good approach at the plate, he’s strong fundamentally, and he’s got a chance to be an above average major league shortstop. As the current roster shows you, having a switch-hitting middle infielder who can play defense and not be a black hole can be a hugely valuable thing.
Good job, fellows. I like both picks so far.
