Last chance for some of these guys to step up and boost their draft stock. I wonder if Alex White will beast it again this year....

You will have to ignore my ignorance, but I never really followed college ball much and this year still didnt, just kept up with some players stats, but is there another confrence besides ACC and MWC?

Pac 10 doesn't have a tournament, yet. All the other conferences have tourneys or just a championship series.

I would like to get one last look at White, Green, and Gibson for the 5th pick

Green is on the road this weekend for USCs last series (I think at Cal Berkley). Not televised, so far as I know.

White should pitch on Friday against UVA. Gibson, I'd guess is throwing Friday against Texas Tech or today against A&M.

Where is Ryan Jackson projected to go now. Last hit made me a believer that with added strength and pitch recognition he might be able to hit enough. I know his defense will stick.

Well, if you read other sources like Baseball AMerica or Perfect Game, they have him in the top 3 rounds. I have him a little lower -- 4-6 range. I agree his defense is plenty good to stick, but I'm just not sold on the bat for a top 100 guy. I was a bigger believer in Crawford's bat last year (even with a down year) and waited until the 4th to take him in our Shadow Draft (San Francisco took him in the 4th in the actual draft, as well).

I'm going to OD on these games this weekend. First time I haven't been since 2002, so I'm sure FSU will win. :D

Good lookin out Stotle, I had forgotten to set my Tivo.

Think FSU can pull out a national seed? I think UNCs pitching will be hard to top, but a good showing by the Noles could get them a host spot in regionals, no? Clemson has been playing well...

I think they'll have to win the tourney and hope a few things break right for them. FSU and UNC are both big underperformers every year in this, so I'd look for the winner of today's early game to make some noise.

You want to take bets that FSU and UVA will be in the finals next year?

Best two teams in the league? No way. In the finals, sure. The tournament is so unpredictable.

Edit: What do you think about Derek Dietrich?

I was looking at the pitching, primarily.

I think Dietrich, from a draft standpoint, could be an early selection. Decent bat and solid defense at SS. Obviously, I'd like him to cut down on the strikeouts a little. I'll pay closer attention in the tourney and let you know -- I've actually only seen him once this year.

    • You’re being too specific. They should have expected a lot of base runners. Even in the example you gave, he gave up runs in most of his appearances. Hyde was hoping for better, of course, but as I’ve said, Viera shouldn’t have been there in the first place. He could have been DFA-ed with little to no risk.  I would much rather have given that opportunity to Vespi, and I imagine most folks here would have as well.
    • Skubal has always interested me but I’m sure the cost would be too high-Mayo.
    • I won’t be surprised either way.  I’m sure we’re not going to see him pitch except in another low leverage situation after that performance, but they still might want to give him another shot and see him on a better day.  As @RZNJnoted, it’s not like he’s been awful every time out this year, and the O’s haven’t had much chance to work with him yet.  At the same time, if they cut bait after one terrible appearance, I won’t lose any sleep over it.  
    • Gunnar is a H o F possibility some years down the road if he stays healthy for 15-20 more years.  I posted this some time ago and no reason to change my opinion.  For people who are baseball fans rather than just Orioles fans that is so apparent there is no reason to keep saying it. In addition, he has a raw boned body  make up that suggests durability.   Very enjoyable to watch him demonstrate his many skills.
    • Roy, how is his family holding up. I think the 4 boys are all grown. I'm sure the media attention makes it hard for them. He must have been a huge (pardon the pun) presence in their lives.  Condolences to all of them.  Also, will the surviving members of the Grateful Dead mark his passing with some event? That would be a can't miss event if so.
    • I mean I just sorta think it was about dumping Stallings, and you get what you can for him. O's probably could have waited to grab Thyago on waivers, but said eh, might as well jump in line and get a 20-year old while we're at it, and get something for Stallings.  If Thyago lasts longer than this Red Sox series on the roster I will be very surprised. 
    • 32nd percentile in sprint speed in 2022, in 2023 and '24 he's been in the 37th percentile. He's in the 52nd percentile in arm strength and was -16 OAA in 2022, -9 in 2023, and 2019, 2021, and 2024 are the only years he's posted a positive OAA he's at +1 this year. His throws are accurate but he does not have a good arm and his sprint speed of 26.8 ranks him as the 279th fastest guy in MLB. If you think the defense and speed are going to improve as he gets older, then sure, I'm being hyperbolic.
