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.

    • I like the new musical diddys played on MASN in the background during games and going into breaks. Got rid of the old stuff. I like it, change everything.
    • Still a couple more months to go that could sway the voting for me.
    • TJ McFarland...easily one of my least liked pitchers of the Buck/DD era just absolutely carving us up. Kinda helps when you get strike calls at the ankles.
    • That was a shockingly bad strike 3 call by the umpire to Villar.  I have never seen a strike called that low in my life.  Of course it hurts less when you are up 7-2, but still, that was absurd.
    • While it's nice and everything, it doesn't change the fact that Smith is a huge liability defensively and that far outweighs the offense he brings. He's got to hit like Ortiz to offset that if we're going to keep putting him in left field.
    • Very pleased.  Our front office is going after appropriate refuse from other organizations (Ruiz, Smith Jr, Broxton, Wojo) and giving them chances.  We are building out what I expect will be a top 10 analytical organization and introducing analytics throughout the organization in a game of catch-up with the rest of baseball.  We are investing in technology that we didn't have before.  We spent good $ in the 2018-19 J2 period and are off to a great start in this one.  We made a good trade with Cashner.  I believe we had a good draft last month.  The major league team is playing more competent baseball than I expected - especially with our top starter injured.  I love the way the guys in the major league dugout are cheering for each other when there is success.  I think our GM and the rest of the FO are checking the boxes that we wanted checked. Regarding the actual performance of our players, I would we should be absolutely thrilled at the emergence of John Means and the performance of Trey Mancini - two all-star quality producers.  Our minor leaguers are performing IMO - as a whole - above expectations and showing tremendous depth. It's a rebuild.  We still have overhang of bad contracts - not a surprise.  We are giving opportunities to guys who will not succeed at the major league level. I would say the biggest reason I am pleased is that I have more confidence than at the beginning of the season that our next competitive team is NOT five years away.  It should not take until 2024 with the current minor leaguers we have, the projected payroll, the supplementary international talent.  Things are moving forward at a good pace.
