    Actually drafted the best player available. Go figure. Wish they hadn't, but I doubt seriously I'll be obsessing about it a year later like some folks here.

    Braves just added a Top 20 guy in all of baseball.

    The draft couldn't have gone better at the top this year.

    I guess the brass appeased you enough not to be the Barves anymore

    I wanted BPA. Braves got a player that is better than #5. Wright fell into their laps and they didn't mess it up.

    I cannot believe we got Wright at five. I'd have taken him 1. This is amazing.

    It just fell into the Braves lap. Other teams over thought it. Especially at 1.

    Outstanding pick

    First time in a long time I've felt that we couldn't mess it up and we didn't. I understood the strategy last year even if I didn't agree with it, but this draft is off to a great start and the last two have been phenomenal...I'll defer to Bridges who has nailed these drafts lately.

    Just one week ago, there were a few draft evaluators thinking that Wright was going to be number 1. In any case, you love to see quotes like MLB.com's Jim Callis thinks the Twins will bypass those two talents (McKay and Greene), saying that Wright "has a higher ceiling than McKay and a higher floor than Greene."

    Still any chance of any last minute trades for the competitive picks?
