Prevailing sentiment on twitter is that Royals are saving $$ to take an overslot pick at 34. The only question is whether Dozier + overslot player is better than Meadows and slot player.

the main guy is Manaea for the price tag drop.
Smith cited Cano and Teixiera. Will Mets fans forgive him for that?
Not to blow everyones mind, but just because a few publications think one thing about a player doesn't mean an organization thinks the same way. The Royals very well may think Dozier is a ~10 player, and probably a few other teams thought he was at least a teens level talent.

"Memory of a goldfish"?
I'm annoyed by commentary, criticism without insight from people merely because a player is picked in a slot that doesn't align with the internet draft board.
It seems kind of odd to be reading and commenting on this thread then.
It's not entirely where an organization has a player rated, it's where the *other* organizations have the player rated as well.
If the Royals had Dozier rated top-10, and every other organization had him rated in the 50s, then the Royals stood a good chance of getting him at 34 and it would have made sense for them to use the #8 pick to take a player that they also had rated highly but that likely would not have been there at 34.
when the best thing you can say about the guy you take is that he's going to stay at SS, that does not strike me as a great selection.
is there really much of a gap between 8 and 34?
