I’ll bite. That’s a high percentage of the slot value for the 5th overall pick.

Almost like you could sign an overslot high upside HS player with the $1.2M savings.

Glad he signed quickly and I hope he gets slotted at Delmarva soon.   

You will be disappointed.   Elias has already said that a lot of the college players will stay in Sarasota for a while to ramp back up into shape because some of them have been shut down for a month or two.  I'll bet that we will wait longer than we all would like before these guys leave Sarasota.

I guess it all depends on what “soon” is.  I’d expect Cowser to move sooner than most.   Some of the guys probably won’t play outside out of Florida at all.

My definition of not soon is long enough that there will be a thread on here griping about how long it has been and yet Cowser and others are still in Sarasota.

8 members of this draft class are on the BA mid season top 100 list.

Cowser is not one of the 8.

I guess that's not shocking considering he wasn't rated very highly by the talking heads leading up to the draft.

Right..it doesn’t mean anything but interesting that a top 5 pick doesn’t make the list.  Wonder how often that has happened?

It appears that Kyle Wright who was drafted by the Braves 5th overall in 2017 never made a top 100 list. He's already pitched 70 underwhelming innings in the majors.

I look back on this draft class and I still don't entirely "get" it... but I'm in insurance.
