I would expect them to have a deal pretty much in place by now.

Yup, you’re probably right. And it’s not like the NFL draft where another team could swoop in with a trade offer at this juncture or something crazy.

If that were true, wouldnt some noise be leaking by now?  

I wouldn't expect the player or his agent to say anything.

It would be up to Elias to let something leak.

I expect it to get leaked within an hour of the pick being made.

Could it be a negotiation tactic on these guys to see if one would go far less?

It certainly wouldn't make sense to say you have narrowed it down if you don't have a deal in place.

Bubba Starling?

I think he's got too much speed to be Rowell and I don't see him being disinterested.

Ohhh Starling. I remember some here were convinced he was the best player in the draft. With all his tools.....

I would expect them to know how much it will cost them to sign any of the finalists on their list by now. They can't really measure the risk of drafting a player unless they know what it will cost.

What are Addley’s weaknesses? Long swing? Defensive issues? Conditioning over a long season? I’ve only seen the positive.

He's a catcher so he isn't fleet of foot and will need more off days.

If Rutschman wants $.5mm over slot and Witt is willing to take $.5mm under slot, is Rutschman worth the extra $1mm?

I'd say so.  But I think it would be more like if Rutschman wants .5M under and Witt wants 1.5M under.

I don't pretend to know what the particulars are likely to be, just wondering if people think signing Rutschman is worth a million dollars more than signing Witt.

MLB Pipeline sought to find out with a poll sent to general managers, scouting directors and executives and national crosscheckers. The question was simple: If you had the No. 1 pick in this year’s Draft, who would you take, and why? It was left open-ended by design, to allow scouts to respond with any name they chose.

A total of 22 responded, from 17 teams. While Rutschman was the clear choice (he got 16 votes), it wasn’t unanimous. The other six provided very strong support for Bobby Witt Jr., the toolsy shortstop out of the Texas high school ranks. No other player received a vote.

Previous shoulder issue. Did not hit until last season.
