Nice to see Hays finishing strong

I have major questions over the bat myself.

I dont think there is a more overrated Os prospect, amongst fans, than McKenna.  He doesn’t hit well.  
 

He certainly may be able to carve out a 4th/5th OFer role but that’s not exactly hard to find.

He has been rated way too high in many prospect lists.

Not ours. He's only as high as he is (19) because Luke liked him a lot more than me and this was the compromise.

I hope Hays can learn to stop diving a balls 2-3' away from him that he has no chance of catching.  Its great he plays all out, but hes a liability to his own future.

Tony can speak for himself, but here is my view of the CF situation.

McKenna is better defensively, but the bat isn't ready (and it may never be).

Hudson Haskin, this year's second round pick out of LSU could potentially stick in center.

Zach Watson and Lamar Sparks are the only other centerfield prospects in the system, but Sparks hasn't even gotten out of Rookie ball and Watson hasn't really hit yet at either Aberdeen or Delmarva.

McKenna is better defensively than Mullins?    What’s your basis for saying that?

Based off of scouting reports I hear about McKenna and remembering them about Mullins, it seems to me that McKenna is a more highly regarded defensive prospect.

Are you even going to do a list this year, in the absence of a minor league season?

Yes, I'm going to add in the new players acquired and drafted and redo the top 30. Probably not detailed in the write ups but will get will get a list out.

    • Barry Bonds did ok...    
    • If Ayala can improve his shooting that would be awesome.  Today was a good start.  I think Wiggins needs to improve his handles and slashing game to be the scorer that would need.  His catch and shoot game is pure.   Gonna need Marial to improve his offensive game as well.  We already know he will defend the rim (theoretically).  Needs to work on his conditioning.  Ultimately I think our lack of interior presence will be our demise, unless Smith and Scott really ball their face off. We have that Swiss guy Revas as well, I'm not expecting much from him though.  The lack of backcourt depth also might hurt unless Dockery and Smart grow quickly.  Can Ayala be the primary ball handler and distributor?  Maybe. I don't think this team will fall off as badly as most think.  Like you said, Morsell/Ayala/Wiggins will keep us in most games.  If Scott and Hamilton (who was a top 100 recruit going into BC) can step up then I think we could surprise some people.  I see us sneaking into the tournament as a 7-10 seed.  
    • It’s a supply and demand thing.  Whether someone offers X amount of dollars is irrelevant.  The Os And their structure, could use his bat and his production.   Most teams don’t have that combo of at bats and money they can spend on a player with his skill set.     The Os do...and the idea that other teams chose not to do it is irrelevant to his value to this organization.  The idea that they may be looking into Puig (conjecture) and brought on a LH DH type at REINFORCES the idea that this is salary driven, not producing driven imo.     My only argument with this decision is that this isn’t solely or even largely driven by roster management despite what Elias says.  He is lying for management.
    • Your tone of authority when you are clearly in a fog is admirable.  Anyone who thought his arbitration number was a bargain, as you suggest, could have offered a warm body to secure his services before he hit the open market.  What won't make sense is if any team offers him 2M or more now that he's available to any team that wants him.
    • There are three vaccines, possibly four or five, if you trust the Chinese and Russians. Every factory on the world is going to be producing them. We may delay the start of spring training(only three months away) but I don’t think the season will start late. We may have distanced crowds, though.
    • No, it absolutely is the formula and what’s he’s worth.  That’s a fact. However, there are only a few teams that need a DH, so it’s not surprising that the market isn’t there..plus, you have announced that you are cutting him, so why trade for him with so little completion?
    • Nevin may get reps at 3B, LF, and DH.  Shaw fits in well as a 1B, LF, DH option too
