  1. This is great. I. Just hope that other teams haven’t already moved on to the next thing. We likely aren’t behind like we once were, but you can bet teams that have been doing this for a few years are doing more different stuff now and have realized what doesn’t work as well as they thought it would.
  2. I loved CJ Abrams but have to admit I wasn't confident he would be better. I just hope our guys didn't screw this up. And before anyone says this guy was a consensus one so they didn't screw up, they have far more information than we have. It's their job to get it right, especially 1:1. The last 1:1 position player failure was Moniak, before that it was Matt Bush (Beckham was a disappointment). Most teams get it at least sort of right.
  3. It's those 5k's in 9PA that keep sticking with me. The guy has only put the ball in play 3 times.
  4. I sure hope Rutschman is hitting in intrasquad because not doing well with the bat for this long can definitely play with your head, especially when many of the others in the top 10 (except Witt) haven't struggled.
  5. It all starts to run together but you are most definitely correct.
  6. I may be in the minority but I am rooting for the guy. It is obvious he has some issues with the mental part of the game and is trying to overcome them. It isn’t all mental, obviously but the effort seems to be there. The mental thing also might explain the dust up with Palmer last year. This guy was in an emotional hole and hiding.
  7. That’s an impressive draft Petry was a good No.2 for a few years.
  8. BA still has us taking Hancock. Martin #1 https://www.baseballamerica.com/rankings/mlb-mock-draft/
  9. The Machado fake is the best. I had never seen it and depended upon Hardy being in the right place.
  10. How can you tell this? It’s impossible to know how much these players are hurt by being thrust onto a major league roster.
  11. Not sure I see the appeal of Rucker. He is 25 and based on the stat line not super special. I guess in Elias we trust.
  12. I think there is confusion. He is saying he previously was traded for Laureano.
  13. Interesting. Bailey was originally traded to the Astros by the A's for Ramon Laureano
  14. Looks like BA had the first two picks ahead of time. https://www.baseballamerica.com/stories/2019-mlb-rule-5-draft-preview/
