If that were true, wouldnt some noise be leaking by now?  

I wouldn't expect the player or his agent to say anything.

It would be up to Elias to let something leak.

I expect it to get leaked within an hour of the pick being made.

Bubba Starling?

I think he's got too much speed to be Rowell and I don't see him being disinterested.

Ohhh Starling. I remember some here were convinced he was the best player in the draft. With all his tools.....

I would expect them to have a deal pretty much in place by now.

I would expect them to know how much it will cost them to sign any of the finalists on their list by now. They can't really measure the risk of drafting a player unless they know what it will cost.

What are Addley’s weaknesses? Long swing? Defensive issues? Conditioning over a long season? I’ve only seen the positive. 

He's a catcher so he isn't fleet of foot and will need more off days.

If Rutschman wants $.5mm over slot and Witt is willing to take $.5mm under slot, is Rutschman worth the extra $1mm?

I'd say so.  But I think it would be more like if Rutschman wants .5M under and Witt wants 1.5M under.

I don't pretend to know what the particulars are likely to be, just wondering if people think signing Rutschman is worth a million dollars more than signing Witt.

MLB Pipeline sought to find out with a poll sent to general managers, scouting directors and executives and national crosscheckers. The question was simple: If you had the No. 1 pick in this year’s Draft, who would you take, and why? It was left open-ended by design, to allow scouts to respond with any name they chose.

A total of 22 responded, from 17 teams. While Rutschman was the clear choice (he got 16 votes), it wasn’t unanimous. The other six provided very strong support for Bobby Witt Jr., the toolsy shortstop out of the Texas high school ranks. No other player received a vote.

Previous shoulder issue. Did not hit until last season.

    • First of all, the current state of the program absolutely matters and it matters a hell of a lot more than MDs title in 2002. Would those schools out hire?  Maybe..money is important and the Terps haven’t had any. BTw, I meant Texas Tech, not Texas A&M.  Now, we will see what TT does after losing Beard but that’s been a really good program recently. FSU has been a far better program than MD for a solid 5-10 years.  It’s not close.  They have had several first round picks, highly ranked recruiting classes and lots of tourney success, not to mention being one of the winningest programs in the ACC. Your last sentence is just wrong.  The idea that you think it’s clear is absurd. They have limited recent success(especially in March), not much national appeal, no money and no real high end picks to point to in the league recently.     Like I said, the right coach can elevate the program back to what you are saying…but as we talk now, as the job is looked at by recruits, etc…it’s not there anymore.  Things can change.  
    • I'm pretty sure these guys call the Summer Eve's Douche Bowl. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=522H44ddePQ
    • Being the number one destination by a long shot in an area with top 5 amateur talent still matters. Being in an attractive major urban area still matters. Having top notch facilities and fan base still matters. Leaving the ACC hurt the programs standing.  But there's a reason the school has had such sustained stretches of success in the past.  Even under Turgeon the team was generally a top 25ish team. If you get fired for being generally top 25ish, that's because people have higher expectations for the program.  And they should.  Because the school has all the advantages to be a top 20 team annually.   Now, that's not saying this hire will end up well for MD.  They could conceivably get worse.  But that won't be because of the program's potential.
    • I think you're looking at it the wrong way by placing too much emphasis on the current state of the program.  I of course don't think thry are currently a top-25 program.  But Maryland was able to lure away P5 coaches from schools that are on your list for their last 2 coaching hires, including during a time when they were facing NCAA sanctions.  On top of that, they were really close to luring away a coach (Sean Miller) from a program that I had listed as better than us.  That's fact, not theory.  I don't believe for a second that Turgeon's tenure here dropped the desirability of this job down to where we aren't still close to that level, nor do I think that the other schools closed the gap so significantly that we are worse than all of them.   Let's look at it another way.  If Iowa lost its coach and were looking for a coach this offseason, would they beat us out in terms of hires?  Would TAMU?   Would Alabama?  Would USC?  With Iowa and TAMU I feel very strongly thay they wouldn't. Especially since we already poached one coach from TAMU.  Alabama?  Maybe depending on how much a coach values environment over Benjamin's, but I also don't think Alabama would pay a coach top dollar unless it's someone like Nate Oats and has proven success with the program.  USC?  Only for someone who wants to be in LA.  FSU?  Absolutely not.  Auburn?  similar to Alabama IMO but maybe more tilted in favor of Auburn.  Arkansas?  Debatable as well.   Regardless there are enough schools on this list where I think Maryland comes out clearly ahead in this exercise that I feel comfortable putting this HC position as a top-25 job.
    • Well, Westry is out.  Smith hurt his ankle And Young was sick.  It could mean they just want more depth and that none of them are out. The McCrary thing is interesting.  Wonder if they give him carries tomorrow?
    • 2022 MLB Draft - Top 200 Prospects — Prospects Live   I posted this a month ago.  Check out his swing at No. 7.    
    • Apparently Enfield has some local ties…maybe that’s a big help. Odom, the coach at UMBC when they beat UvA figures to be on the list too.
