2011 Draft - Red Sox Edition

The Red Sox hold the #19, #26, #36 and #40 overall picks in the upcoming draft.   It could be the last draft without hard slotting.  Do they stick to their typical strategy of drafting and signing a few tough signs or do they break the bank and load up on as much high caliber talent as possible?   Who would you realistically take with those picks?   My choices after the jump:


#19 - Josh Bell (RH - OF) - High school outfielder drawing Jason Heyward comparisons with a big bat, questionable glove.

#26 - C.J. Cron (RH - 1B) - Power hitting righty.  Susac (college catcher) is a close second choice.

#36 - Matt Purke (LHP) - Could be this year's Ranaudo.  A top 5 talent that could slip to the supp round due to a '11 injury and a high price tag.  He's a wild card at this point based on the injury.  He could be an early first round pick or drop beyond the #36 pick.

#40 - Tyler Beede (RHP) - MA product with an advanced arm. 

In a draft known more for pitching, I get two power bats with the first two picks and then a college and high school arm in the supplemental round.
