Best way to practice for the season.   Hope he's doing a lot of watching in 2020.

I wonder if they got room for a couch in the dugout?

Angels gave away their first round pick from 2019 (Wilson) so the Giants would take on Cozart's $12.66M contract for 2020 in exchange for cash and a PTBNL. Wish the Orioles had made this deal.

And here I heard that they were willing to spend whatever it took this offseason.

This Cole auction is demanding.  I share the wish - that would have been a good shot at a 2022 infielder.

According to Fangraphs, the 15th pick in the draft is worth $18.4 million. My guess is that the cash that the Giants are sending is the equivalent of Wilson's $3.4 million signing bonus, if so a pretty good deal for the Giants, assuming Wilson is/was a reasonable pick at #15.

Gausman to Giants for a pretty big number, that'll have to help their Cole dark horse status.

Didi to Phillies for 1-year, may work nicely if Kingery can handle CF.

Somebody saving 12.6 million dollars and giving up their top draft pick from last year to do so. 

Seems crazy to me.

    • Just to clarify, he’s talking specifically about pitchers that have justified being picked.
    • No, but the salary cap makes things very wonky in the NBA and NHL. While the NFLs system really screws over the players. The only way I see the MLBPA giving into a salary cap is if they cut the years of control right in half.  Which would basically change strategy away from developing home grown talent. 
    • I'm over the moon if Tork is available at 2. I get the defensive and athletic upside is limited, but that is such a special bat. .285 and 30 HR annually? Absolutely. Realistically, I wouldn't be upset with either Martin or Lacy at 2. Martin might not project the upside as a traditional 1-2, but there is something to be said for his tools across the board. Pitchers this high make me nervous as well, but a Rodriguez-Lacy-Hall top of the rotation sounds formidable, health permitting. 
    • So, former GM Jim Bowden is now writing for the Atlantic.  According to his research, there were 42 players taken among the 80 players selected in the first five picks of the 16 MLB drafts between 2000 and 2015 and only five of the 42 have justified the selection - Verlander, Price, Strausburg, Cole and Bauer.  Two of those pitchers, Verlander and Strausburg, were "no-brainer" decisions.  It is a hit rate far below WC's opening post.
    • Just keep chucking talent into the firebox and hope that coaching, video, personality tests, wearable tech, organizational philosophy, and the mysteries of the universe  squirt out some rare nuggets at a reasonable pace.
    • Thanks for posting this. I read this Monday and meant to comment to you. Drastically different from BA’s write up that I referenced. Not my critique, theirs. I’ve never seen the kid. I am two years removed from most of the HS kids. I know many of the college Sophomores and Juniors fairly well. I have some info on the Central Florida kids, but that’s about all I got as a personal knowledge base.    I like what MLB wrote about Halpin. If that is what Elias sees, then perhaps he’s higher on the board. I believe Elias May take 1-2 HS kids, at most. Just based on limited data and all. Quite polar reports, but that’s how it goes. One scout sees him on a bad few days. Another sees him on a good few games. What I take from that is inconsistency would make it tougher to draft him unless you are all in on him as an area scout and cross checker.
    • I wish my adhd 9 year old daughter would stop talking jumping and singing Taylor swift and go the ?!?!!??? To sleep or at least go to her room. I might ready the Samuel l Jackson book go the f to sleep!
