And that's fine if they did.  They say they will have him graded higher.  But I really don't believe that.  Do you?

I can buy they like his bat better than Martin but if you are a corner OF you better damn well hit.

Every penny of the pool gets spent. So there is no penny pinching. It's just who gets the money. In a deep draft, plenty of good places to spend it. 

They spent 8.8 million on the Hobgood draft and walked away with a relief pitcher.

Gunnar Henderson,  Switchhitters - Rutschten and Santander.

I was with you on Henderson, Rutschman but started laughing when you skipped Mountcastle and named Santander.

I'll have what you're having.

From the beginning I thought Kjerstad had the batting makeup of Will Clark, a lot of fellow Hogs fans feel that way as well. WOULD NOT be surprised if the O's select Arkansas infielder Casey Martin at either 30 or 39.

They didn’t go underslot to take another college guy.  This is for two high end high schoolers.

And you think this strategy makes more sense in year where they've condensed the number of rounds from 40 to 5? To me, if there ever was a year to swing for the fences with a top pick it is this year.

Yep, better mash.  

Also, I was hoping he would be really fast or something.  I hope it's not true that he's a plodder.

I have a question about drafting goes under slot.

This draft there’s only five rounds, we’re only going to get what, seven total guys?

Doesn’t that mean there’s tons and tons of money to go around and we don’t have to worry about drafting under slot in order to save money somewhere else?

Mountcastle is right-handed

Is he faster than DJ Stewart?

Hopefully they think his plate discipline is better than advertised. Considering how analytical we are, Martin aside they had to see something. 

He obviously isn’t going to get faster.

Not a plodder at all. Average speed and very good arm.
