*The rest of this post is nonsense*

I would like any of these 5 players:

Braylon Bishop
Izaac Pacheco
Christian MacLeod
Steve Hajjar
Carter Holton

Would guess maybe Bishop, Pacheco, and one of the college arms are there while Holton might go in the top 15 picks as the top HS P. If you want crazy comps, and who doesn't - Jim Edmonds, Jim Thome, Mark Buerhle, Andy Pettitte, Cliff Lee. Throw Eddie Murray in for Braden Montgomery. These purported ceilings are only possible if drafted by the Cubs


It’s the 21st pick. BA included Houston’s forfeited pick in their draft order.

(This assumes they’ll go with 2020 record for their 2021 draft order.)


MLB confirmed today that they’ll be going with reverse 2020 standings. The Cubs will pick 21st.

Aidan Stewart, SS Next Level Academy (AL) | Missouri Commit | Ht: 6’5 Wt: 200 | H/T: S/R

It’s not often you see a middle infield prospect with the build of Tristan McKenzie. Aidan Stewart a 2021 shortstop out of Alabama breaks the mold. The switch-hitting Missouri commit is glove over bat at the moment. He made some smooth plays in the field and shows solid infield actions and movements.

At the plate he’s more advanced from the left side than the right, showing the ability to shoot the gaps from the left, but generating predominantly groundball contact from the right. Due to his long levers his swing will get long and it’s a somewhat linear bat path. Often gets caught off balance and too heavily onto his front foot. There is some projection left in the frame and he can flash average power on his best contact.


Not like a badass prospect but it's not often you see 6'5" switch hitting SSs at any level

This guy is Zobrist's newphew, a LHH MIF with a recently attained DBU commit, maybe a poachable non-first recruit

Seems unlikely to me. His dad is the head coach of DBU, where he is signed to play.

This kid, Jackson Thomas, doesn't have a commit but I like how he throws more than alot of these other HS RHs:

Not really what I was looking to read and not sure why anyone would have him over Christian MacLeod among college LHSP prospects if that's the look. Granted it's Fall and he's pitched very little in college so far, but that's more reason to prefer MacLeod!

Alright so maybe I've been sleeping on Chase Burns:
