Man, I really wish we had drafted Seth Beer.

I don’t hate it btw. He’s fast, plays defense, makes lots of contact, hit in school, showed some pop with wood bats in the Cape Cod League, went to horsefeathers Stanford...Deuces to Ian Happ this year

Lemahieu

College bat who squares everything up and settles as an above average defensive 2B


I think he's going to have a bit more pop than LeMahieu, but who knows.

In some respects, the pick really makes a lot of sense. They kept on noting how they couldn't miss with this draft, and they needed to restock the upper levels with positional assets. Hoerner is relatively safe, compared to the other options out there, and he was safer than Eierman. I preferred more upside, but I get it, with how the system stacks up, what the needs were, and how the draft looked.

Really love the Noah Naylor pick for the Indians. They'll give him all the time he needs behind the dish.

I wonder if this is the dagger in the Mejia behind the plate option in Cleveland. The doubts have continued to grow despite the 80 grade arm.

Doubt Naylor would impact Mejia. Naylor's at least ... what, best case 4-5 years away?

Hoerner put up a .156 IsoSLG in the CCL with a 10% K rate over 160 PAs. I’m willing to be optimistic about the whole “there’s more power to be had” thing. I know I am being very brave by typing this.

Even if they’re first round price tags, the Royals are taking a lot of college pitching for a team with a lot of money.

If SD signs Weathers and Edwards, that's a solid 1-2.

I like the Hoerner pick. Some upside and presumable saves some money for later picks. He was a guy I was hoping for if some other things didn't fall into place.

So far, I like Tampa's and the White Sox drafts the most.

I would love if we end up with Alek Thomas here. He was one of the half dozen guys I was really eyeing at #24
