2 #1s

A recent EBAY purchased arrived early this week.  I won these two 2014 Bowman Draft Chrome autos for around $10 delivered.

Luke Weaver was the Cardinals first draft pick going 27th overall. He is typical Cardinals draft pick, a polished college pitcher who could rise through the system fairly quick like Michael Wacha or Marco Gonzales.  I do not think he has the same potential as the other two, but he should be a servicable 4th or 5th starter, or maybe a short reliever.

Jack Flaherty was the Cardinals second first round pick, going 34th overall.  The Cardinals received this pick when Carlos Beltran signed with the Yankees.  Flaherty has higher potential than Weaver, but is 2 years younger.  I would guess it will be 3 or 4 years before he has a change to make the big leagues if he fulfills that potential.  I hope he gets assigned to the Cardinals low A team in Peoria so I can get a chance to watch him pitch this year.

  1. Great Cards! I'm interested to see where they will end up in the future to come.
