I'm sorry but this won't work.  We draft a ton of great baseball names and then add Toby Welk?  Sad face.

Well he is a 21st round pick so I'm not sure what anyone should expect other than a minor league org guy. Anything from this round on that becomes more than that is really a great find. For a kid to mash against any kind of competition the way he did, why not take a flier in the 21st round?

On a quick look, since 2000 the top player drafted in the 21st round (and signed) was AJ Ramos, selected by the Marlins in 2009.   He’s been worth 6 WAR.    There’s 3-4 other guys who have been worth more than 1 WAR.

He's a senior sign with an actual unknown ceiling because you just don't know what he'll do against good pitching. We know what he does against bad pitching and it's damn impressive. Have we found any "summer league" numbers on him?

Pretty surprising that a 22 year old would have a 50 year old actress as his favorite.

    • Of course they were about money, but that was slightly different. Matusz and Webb were,“Give us a token non-prospect and we’ll give you a draft pick...oh, and a declining player with a small salary, whom you can release the next day.” I think the Webb pick was somewhere in the 70s, but the Matusz pick was ~20 picks sooner. I don’t remember Dans exact comments about the value of the picks, but they were dismissive. At a time when we’d lost several picks because of signing QA guys, those picks had value.
    • Here’s who has made the majors from Duquette’s drafts so far (each year in descending WAR order): 2012: Gausman, Hader, Walker, Kline,  (20.9 WAR) 2013: Mancini, Yaz, D. Hart, Brault, Crichton, Wynns, Harvey, Sisco, Yacabonis, Heim, Tarpley (17.2 WAR) 2014: Means, Scott, Hess, Wilkerson (5.1 WAR) 2015: Stewart, Mountcastle, Meisinger, Mullins (1.3 WAR) 2016: Akin, Hays (0.5 WAR) 2017-18 nobody yet Obviously the later the year, the more incomplete the picture.  But that’s 25 players who’ve produced 45.2 WAR so far. In that same time span: TOR 30 players, 40.1 WAR TBR 29 players, 10.9 WAR NYY 33 players, 22.8 WAR BOS 36 players, 12.4 WAR Not bad by Duq I’d say.     
    • Command and Control are related and overlap, but are different things. If you can throw a breaking pitch for a strike and not walk someone, that is good 'control'. If you leave it belt high in the middle of the plate, jolly good for your control, but not being able to command it in / out / up / down can get you crushed in the big leagues. Cabrera, D. had NEITHER. I did not comment on Zimm's control, but his command, which looked sharp to the first batter, but hell, he's a rookie making his first start. It's not even a very small sample size. The stuff looked good enough.
    • o   You're an Orioles Hangout workhorse, Mr. Boemmel ........ no need for apologies.   o
    • Probably not, but Gregg Jeffries got a few votes that year he appeared in 29 games.  I suppose technically you could be ROY twice.  Or five times if each of your first four seasons involved homering in all 20 at bats you got...  In other sports, namely English Premier League Soccer, their version of the ROY is called the Young Player of the Year and I count at least four players who've won it twice.  Framing it that way fixes some of the issues with (for example) foreign players who are 30-year-old MLB rookies with six or eight high level seasons under their belt winning the award, but perhaps creates other problems.
    • Is he on a 1 year deal? I think if not, he gets DFA’ed. Either way, they might try and re sign him to a MiLB deal with a Spring Training invite.
    • o   Meanwhile, the streaky Yankees have won 8 games in a row ........ the White Sox, the Athletics, and the Rays have been the Big 3 in the American league for the better part of this abbreviated season. The Twins and the Yankees are a few games behind those teams, likely headed for middle-of-the-pack playoff seedings.   o
