    There are well-known character concerns, unfortunately.

    Go Braves! There's a good chance this is our last top-10 pick for the next 5-10 years (maybe more - woot), I hope we make it count.

    On the level of Yunel Escobar or more AJ Pierzinski?

    Eh, the same is said about next year's draft pretty much every year. Kids are always more hyped before they get scrutiny.
    "Acuna is getting lucky, just like CJ did when he batted .321 and won a batting title. He is unlikely to get lucky at the MLB level over an extended period of time. He will settle in around .300-.320 just like everyone else, and when he does, he won't be within shouting distance of the 1.000 OPS he is posting in AAA...more like low .700s in 2018." -Enscheff 8/25/17

    Not excited about Langeliers, but they didn't ask for my input.
