    • BA did a mock in which we took Veen.  https://www.masnsports.com/steve-melewski/2020/06/a-look-at-baseball-americas-surprise-mock-draft-os-selection.html
    • Can you give me an example of a 1-1 that signed for overslot since the current iteration of slotting was put in place? Also, no one takes a long time to sign anymore, the deadline is early July.
    • But definitely not a 'hary.' Yes perhaps, though each case is different, and it will depend on how fast Veen develops.  Some reports say he made strides from last year to this, so maybe he's quick.  Manny was only in the minors for two years before being 'ready.' But bottom line for me if I'm a scout: If I think two or more players have the same liklihood of reaching their ceilings (however high they may be) I'm taking the one with the highest ceiling every time, regardless of how long it will take him to be ready.  Add in the fact that we can save money with Veen, and I'm liking him more every day.  Ultimately I'll be excited about whoever we pick though, unless it's Hancock, whom I have reservations about due to his performance this season and the spin rate on his fastball.
    • Counterpoint- Mark Reynolds.
    • Those seem like two sides of the same coin.
