WTF?????? Or I can ask it in another way...... WTF??????

That's gotta be a hot gun. But, even if it is, we've known he's obviously a guy with serious upside. This puts it in some perspective anyway.

Re: 2017-18 Bulls Thread - Fly the Tank W

Trading down would suck. If anything, they need to move up. If we found our way into 4, I'd take Bamba, or Bagley, if he's still there. At 7, you have a chance at getting an elite guy, but the odds lower obviously..... My final 7 is Ayton, Bagley, Doncic, Bamba, then MPJ, JJJ, and Carter- with the o...

Re: 2018 Actual MLB Draft Day(s) Thread

Brayden Fisher signed for under 500k, Justin Jarvis signed for a bit over 300k. Fisher in the 3rd as an UNDER SLOT HS arm, same with Jarvis in the 4th, would have made me very happy.

Uelmen goes 6.2 6 0 0 0 5. After a rough start, he's settling in pretty well.

So, this is one of the worst takes I've ever seen. Writer advocated Reds trading Votto, Cueto, and Bailey in 2008.....

For Joe Blanton.

Re: International Free Agency Thread 2018-2019

I have sympathy for the kids, because they're likely just doing what their trainers are telling them to do. Yeah, their bonuses are going to fall. That said, it's scary as horsefeathers to try and project 14-15 year olds to begin with. Add in PED's to that equation? It absolutely DOES suck for teams...

Re: 2018 Actual MLB Draft Day(s) Thread

Well, he may be. If he got 450k, then it's a pretty major under slot, since pick value is 762,900. Really need clarification on this one, as it could go either way obviously.

They're still playing, so I'm thinking there was a rain delay. Looks like something after 1 out 8n the bottom of the third. Not sure if it was rain, how long it lasted, or what though.

Re: 2018 Actual MLB Draft Day(s) Thread

Was hoping for less, although its good to see they think that highly of him. Doubt we've got any extra money to play with now. But, I'm assuming Davis and Roederer both get over slot, in saying that. Guessing that's where our 5% money is going.

Re: Minor League Musings place holder.

Slightly disappointed he has Garcia that low. But, he's got plenty of time to prove him wrong obviously. At any rate, I keep forgetting we've got Soto and Perez coming behind Amaya, which is pretty awesome.

Re: 2018 Actual MLB Draft Day(s) Thread

I'm all for trading draft picks. But, how do you do it, since I can't see them getting rid of the slot value crap? Keep it to top 10 round picks getting dealt. Maybe keep it to one year in advance. And MAYBE even keep a team from trading for more than what their original pool was. So the little guys...

Re: 2018 Actual MLB Draft Day(s) Thread

I'm almost positive the first time I read about the Cubs doing research into that was Bleacher Nation. I've been assuming it was basically the reason they've been able to identify guys like Happ and Schwarber who were not on people's radar at the time. I thought the exact same thing. Almost positiv...
