Not sure I've heard that happen to anyone else other than Babe Ruth.

It happened to Barry Bonds at least once

Didn’t Buck do it with the DBacks?

Bobby Witts Jr agreed to a full slot contract of almost 7.8m.    So we know Rutschman will get at least that much and probably more.

Yes, I think so.   But it was only two years ago that the no. 2 pick got a bigger bonus than no. 1.    So it can happen, though I don’t expect it will this year.

Debuts at #9 on Fangraphs fresh update to Overall MLB Prospect Rankings.

The next four Orioles clump between 67 and 119, and beyond the Top 5 they have Stowers leap-frogging Akin/Lowther and all the other candidates for our third best pitching prospect.

FWIW they initially give Stowers a 45 FV, and Gunnar just 40+

Stowers is closer to the Majors, he should be ranked higher on prospect lists. Gunnar has to show something against real competition.

In the spirit of enjoying the shiny new toy, I'll also note he'll bump up to #8 this weekend as Fernando Tatis passes 130 at-bats.

They have him ahead of the downgraded Kyle Tucker, MLB wunderkind Austin Riley, and his 1-1 predecessor Casey Mize.

Of the fifteen FV 60's they pass out, he's in the upper third of that grouping with Adell, Trammell, Hiura and Mize.

Next year could play out as a quest to ascend the Wander Franco Mt. Everest of prospectdom.

I'll be curious to see if Delmarva's success this year is an Adley magnet - in a vacuum he could probably handle getting his feet wet in Frederick.

Remember when folks were suggesting Hiura as a possible return in trade talks at the deadline?

I probably mentioned him as a stretch goal last summer, though I certainly would have expected to include Givens or Gausman with Schoop to try to reach that ballpark.  Or perhaps more likely Gausman and Givens as I remember the Brewers interest in Schoop after already having Shaw and Moustakas surprising - most of last July I doubt I would have imagined them part of the Schoop market.

Seeing Tatis atop that list and about to graduate reminded me of the "Pick 10 Guys" thread last summer when I think we debated Yelich v. Tatis as the last guy in behind 9 more obvious ones - those two guys are keeping that one interesting.

Rutschman in the ESPN booth for a pretty good interview during the Tigers / Royals game. Says he’s ready for the day to day grind of the professional baseball season, and that he’s not concerned about being on what might still be a losing team when/if he makes the majors as he only worries about stuff he can control. 

Seemed really mature and grounded for such a young kid.

    • You very clearly stated her value was her looks and not her intellectual contributions to the broadcast which probably says more about you than it does about her.  Best of luck to Sara. 
    • Hunter interviewed her on the radio pregame, and she said that she was not yet able to reveal what her next job would be but she would be soon. So this looks more like she is leaving for another opportunity then MASN getting rid of her.
    • Game 98, July 21 There were some excellent defensive plays in yesterday’s one hitter, four of which I’ll mention here. - With nobody out and a runner on 1st in the 6th inning, Chris Davis gloved a hard-hit ball over the bag, stepped on the edge facing home plate, took one more step towards home as he pivoted, and fired a strike to 2B that allowed Villar to apply the tag and complete a DP.  Davis has always been very good at feeds to 2B and this was a good example. - With Givens in the game in the 9th, Devers laced a rising liner to RF that Mancini went back on and almost misjudged it but he leaped and made a nice outstretched catch. - The next hitter hit a ball in the RCF gap but Wilkerson raced over and made a nice backhand catch while running pretty much full speed. - The final hitter of the game hit a ground ball in the 1B/2B hole, but Chris Davis made a diving stop and an accurate flip to Givens, who hustled over to cover 1B on the play.    The defense was in a RH pull shift, so Davis was about halfway between 1st and 2nd when he made the stop.    The stop, the accurate throw from his knees at that distance, and Given’s presence of mind to get to 1B on a ball hit that far towards 2B were all very impressive.    
    • Really?  That's incredible considering all the complete games pitchers got in the 70s.  Where did you discover this fact?
    • Impressive!    His breaking stuff had great late movement yesterday.    Still, he got away with some hard hit balls, especially in the later innings.    Hyde picked the right time to pull him.   
    • She did a good job.    It’s not rocket science, so I’m sure they’ll find a competent replacement.    It will be interesting to hear what her next gig is.
