Don't overthink it. Martin. Torkelson if Martin somehow goes first. I think they are just negotiating whether directly or indirectly by suggesting the underslot scenario. If Martin drops down a spot or two he loses money. So having him think that they are trying to save some money on the #2 slot. Just my guess and hope. Lacy sounds good but there is so much risk on pitcher's health and the control is not A+. I wouldn't hate Lacy at #2 but I'm not for it. The HS OF is a corner guy so it's all about the bat. Martin is more proven and can likely play 3B, 2B or CF. Martin seems like a no brainer to me if he's there. He would be a complete no brainer if he was a SS. Semi no brainer at 2B. Even at 3B or CF, his overall games seems to be the best of anyone, HS or college.
I’m usually very against that strategy on principle but.... dang Correa and McCullers? I’d say it worked that time. Totally depends on the evaluation of the players considered. Looking at the 2012 draft, I remember Buxton being pretty clearly the consensus top guy and taking Correa was a gutsy pick.
I’m going to trust Elias no matter what, but I’d be much happier with Martin. Hopefully he’s seeing the Bregman comps, too.
That is exactly who I thought of. Too bad he couldnt figure things out.
* Never mind, he did figure things out. Last year he slashed .363/.449/.617 for an OPS of 1.066! with 22 HRs but only 3 stolen bases but then again he is 34 years old and it was in Mexico
What kind of world is this that someone digs up a racist tweet from 4 years ago and calls out the only person that has anything close to a public image who liked it? Also, freedom of speech only applies if you agree with it? I dont like the use of that word by anyone, however, the use of words here is what gets criticized rather than someone being angry over the killing of police officers?
Im pretty sure I crossed the line of political discussion, but some times I cant just help myself. Remove if necessary.
