Zunino is that man. With him and Tavares you'd have the two best hitters in the minor leagues. He may be blocked this year but Shoppach and even Montero are not long term options. I doubt Bogaerts doesn't get picked between 1 and 13.
Thanks, I've been trying to find a good next catcher as well. I have Brian McCann but he was broken all of 2012. I picked up Mesoraco but he didnt do anything and I have gary sanchez (who i might end up dropping depending on his time to the majors)
First I doubt Zunino lasts until pick 13, and second I think people are way too high on him. He's essentially the same prospect as Matt Wieters was. His ceiling is great but the defensive aspects of the position can take a lot out of player, and as he gets to the majors he'll be more focused on defense then his bat.
I'd personally take Byron Buxton if he's there at 13. Further away but considering it's your second pick it won't hurt you.
