Bruno and Cowan declare pro

Recommended Posts

In today's college landscape, it's really hard to improve your stock between your junior and senior seasons.  I think he might go and just milk a career in Europe. If he gets lucky he might latch onto an NBA G-League team and then pick up a cup of coffee in the big show.  I don't think it would be the wrong decision for him to go, though that obviously depends on what he can get going for him in the pro scene.

If I understand correctly, there is a new rule that now allows you to declare for the draft even if you hire an agent, as long as you back out by May 31st or something. So really they're not gone yet, I'd imagine Cowan will be back still but still was surprising. If he's gone I'm not too concerned about it. Obviously, would love to have Fernando back but that isn't going to happen.

Cowan has no chance of being drafted IMO and doesn’t have an NBA body/skill set. I think he’s declaring pro so he can get paid overseas. Do not expect him back. 

Bruno, although unlikely, may have a better chance of coming back after seeing that he’s no longer going to be a lottery pick. Still should go in the first round, so he’s likely gone.

    • One of BP's eyewitness guys ventured a "looks like Jered Weaver" comp on him, and tagged his windup as slow and deliberate, not that TTTP is as much of an organizational priority anymore.
    • If you told me my CF played elite defense, hit 25 dingers and had 40 SB I would say that's pretty spectacular.  List the guys who have done that in the last ten years. That said, I think he could end up being a weak version of a player Elias had in Hou, Jake Marisnick.
    • At the end of the day, you will most likely be disappointed with whatever the actual result is in the next signing period. I don't say that as a slight to you, really, just that there will still be a disparity between what actually occurs in their first actual year of entering this market and what we envision is possible. But whatever they do, it looks like it will clearly be the MOST they've done EVER. It doesn't mean it will be effective in terms of that turning into ML talent. But the progress toward that goal will be noteworthy, and their international efforts should only improve from that point on. 
    • When I talk to people about this who dont think it's a problem I always ask them if they are a parent, and what they would think if their son/daughter and a friend came home with a test.  The test is a ten question test and the friend got 7/10 questions right while their son/daughter got 8/10.  However when asked what the grade is the son/daughter got a B while the friend got an A.  That's major league baseball. And the analogy usually works to show people the absurdity of what has been deemed a competitively balanced system. Large market teams simply can make more mistakes and end up with better results. The Boston Redsox won the WS last year with over $80 million in dead money (Sandoval, Craig, Rusney Castillo).  That was more dead money than 4 teams were paying their entire payroll.
    • They only play the Yankees 8 more times all year, so that will help them not make it to 115 losses.  Hopefully they will have some opponents over the rest of the year that don't intimidate them as easily as the Yankees do.  Just imagine how badly New York would be beating the Os if they actually had even a reasonably healthy team.
    • The way this team is looking, they just might lose more than 115 games. Hard to imagine, but they'll probably be even worse in July, if they trade Mancini.
    • But he didn't call out Jones or Schoop.
