In the 2019 Guide, hitting newsstands now:

GIANELLA PICK: He always had the raw ability,
but it wasn’t until Taillon added a 90-mile-per-
hour slider to an already devastating fastball/
curve combo that he finally showed the ace
potential that made him the #2 overall pick way
back in 2010. Taillon enters 2019 healthy and
should deliver ace value at a non-ace price.

PIANOWSKI PICK: I love the name, makes me
think I’m drinking in some New York speakeasy.
This is the year Taillon pushes into the Cy Young
conversation, even if it’s in some Brooklyn cel-
lar at 4 am. One for the road.
