DateQuestionAnswer
2015-07-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)How would you draft these guys and who are the real Aces in the group if any? Kevin Gausman Eduardo Rodriguez Aaron Sanchez, Daniel Norris, Kyle Gibson,
(OB1KENOBI from NYC)
None of these guys are aces in my opinion, but I'd go Norris, Rodriguez, Gausman, Sanchez, Gibson. (Christopher Crawford)
