Re: 2020 Draft Thread

Sabato in the second would be great but I basically have no interest in Meyer as high as 16. The Cubs arguably got a similar but superior prospect in Jensen last year, a deeper repertoire plus a full amateur SP season, and at a lower draft slot. It would sting if the Cubs let Crow-Armstrong fall (to...

Re: 2020 Draft Thread

Callis when ask if and how teams can prep for the draft: I've talked to several scouting officials, and the consensus is that there will be no more game looks at college or high school players. There's talk of trying to put together combines for top prospects, but some executives think that many of ...

Color me shocked that the plan is mostly pushing talent to the NCAA cartel, who IIRC will be renegotiating their media rights over the next 3 years

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

That is great but now they'll have to worry about what the owners want in return beyond the stadiums we will be paying for. The crazy thing is that it was in doubt considering it's the only right choice, these careers are very short and getting shorter by design so to lose both a year in age AND tea...

Re: 2019-20 Offseason Rumors/General Chit-Chat

Maybe it'll lead to a more interesting situation like one of Hearn or Quintero in SB sooner than later (say this year or next)? It seems like Higgins had passed Pereda as Iowa's starter, Amaya's the AA starter obvy, and guys like Guerra, Windham, Soto and so on were fighting for the levels beneath t...

Re: #NotAllPitchers

I wonder how much the shutdown and say, the feedback gained from the lost 2019 of Craig Kimbrel after being forced to skip ST but get ready to compete in a hurry, played into the decision? Some comments make it seem like this surgery would be less likely without the shutdown...Damn you COVID-19! htt...
