2012 5th round pick Colin Poche

I was looking through AFL stats today, and saw that Colin Poche is pitching there.    He was drafted by the Diamondbacks in 2016, and pitched in both low and hi A this year, posting a dominating 1.25 ERA and 14.5 K/9 in 50 innings of relief work.   In the AFL he has a 3.18 ERA and 11.9 K/9.    Looks like we made a good pick; it’s a shame we couldn’t sign him.  

I saw him pitch yesterday.

Looked pretty sharp.   Around the plate, did not throw hard, but had 3 decent pitches; struck out 2 batters -- 1 looking, and 1 swinging; a couple of hard hit singles.

Drafted in 14th round (419) in 2016 and signed for $100k.

I’d say going to college did not work out for him financially.   He would have made more money as a 5th rounder and would be further along in his development, too.    He apparently did have some maturity issues so maybe it’s best that he got those out of his system before turning pro, though.

I’d say if you look at most 18 year old kids they have maturity “problems”. I’ve never really liked that label, especially for high school draftees.  Now I’m not saying personality isn’t an important factor, you want someone who can take coaching and takes pride in their performance.

    • It’s already so far out of touch, I doubt fans care if a player is making $20 mm/yr or $40 mm/yr.    They’re already in a whole other universe.   
    • First off, you were being condescending by making us sound like we were a no nothing blog, so stop with all of the hard-ache. Secondly, if you are in baseball and you don't take as many opinions as you can then I would look inward at yourself. Scouts outside the organization have zero to gain by down grading a player to us. The guys I talk to I've had relationships for years. They are an opinion to be added in with other opinions within the organization as well as our scouting. You are 100% correct that opinions are just that. I'm completely fine with anyone having a differing opinion than me, and I don't take offense at someone who says that they don't agree, but there is absolutely no need to disparage someone's opinion as being lesser because you don't agree. I've been doing this for 20 plus years. That doesn't make me infallible or never wrong, but I'll lay my process down against anyone including professional baseball people. That doesn't make me right, but it sure should mean I deserve a little respect and don't get called "blog pages ", whatever the heck that means. It doesn't matter what the team has in store. I feel his most likely outcome is a platoon outfielder because of his inability to hit lefties. Doesn't mean that he might not improve or a team might live with it and play him every day,   
    • That's a hell of a prediction.  These defenses font strike me as good enough for a game like that.   That said, I fully expect McCarthy to outcoach the ever loving hell out of Harbaugh.
    • 1965 = 4,658 / 1.77 1975 = 8,631 / 2.59 1985 = 16,823 / 5.66 1995 = 24,706 / 13.14 2013 = 44,888 / 23.89   Ref: http://roadsidephotos.sabr.org/baseball/earlyticketprices.htm https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Average_Indexed_Monthly_Earnings
    • Hate this rule more than any other in baseball.
    • Must be traded during the season.  So next year Dan trades the pick to try and buoy a mediocre team.  The gambit fails but Dan tells us it's okay because they should have some picks coming from Manny and Jones walking.
    • Have to wonder where it ends? Huge supply of fans willing to spend their money, but how many more price increases are they willing to stomach before they just lose interest? Hard to re-ignite the flame once gone. I'm just guessing here, but it would seem to me that the price of a ticket and all the associated costs to attend pro sporting events has far outpaced the increase in wages in recent years (last 10-20 years?). Haven't done the research, just going off of gut feeling.
