Verdict: I'd be thrilled with Alonso, just as I'd be thrilled with Tim Beckham, Gordon Beckham, Buster Posey, Justin Smoak, or Pedro Alvarez. There's about a 4% chance that the Giants screw this draft up, at least as far as the short-term analysis goes. I don't think that either Aaron Crow or Brian Matusz is special enough to trump the organizational need for hitting. Alonso should move quickly.
