Hoerner to the Cubbies. That means at least one of Casas and Beer will be there for the Sox.
And....McLain to the snakes. Sox on the clock folks.
Looks like it’s gonna be Casas.
Watch them pull a Belichick and everyone on the board goes WHO???
I know we’ll know in a moment, but I’m interested in your reasoning.
Trey Ball's brother is available
Chatter on Twitter
Accurate, as it turns out.
And the newest baby sock is Casas.
I like the Pronunciation. More like Cassius
Video of Casas.
Bet the house on Casas.
The way Devers is going, how fast can we bring him up?
Gives me a Brandon Belt vibe, maybe?
Casas will play first base, not third...say the scouting reports.
Certainly isn’t being coy about signing or going to college. Seems pumped to be drafted by Sox
Triston ... with an o
I’ve loved Casas ever since I first heard of him, three minutes ago.
It's all downhill from here
For those of you who are much more into prospects, where would he rank in this farm system today?
Always nice to draft a "Dick" award winner.
His rank in the Sox farm system? Could be. That really depends upon Groome's recovery from surgery. But top 3 to 4 for sure.
Beer finally goes to Houston.
Yeah I would have to say he’s the top position prospect as soon as he signs.
I'd say at least 5 - I seem to remember Houck debuting there last year on SoxProspects - but the system is so shitty now, it wouldn't surprise me to see him even higher
U Miami signee and said he was a Hurricane fan since birth...but yeah, he looked ready to go straight to Fort Meyers.
They say the same about Devers.
Similar, but not quite. If I remember correctly, Devers was projected as being passable at third base, but scouts said he would need to eventually move to first.
The article I read on Casas seemed less optimistic about his ability to play third in the majors. But hey, they kid was born in 2000, the 21st century and is so young almost anything can happen.
Yes, we are officially older than dirt.
Hopefully with greater success than Lars Anderson
Last year of the 20th century, you mean.
No. I am of the masses, who are asses, and count differently.
For me, Casas was the most intriguing guy that the Red Sox were linked to over the past couple of months. I read an article about him on Baseball America describing his approach and intangible stuff. It's a puff piece, of course, but he certain seems like a kid with a good head on his shoulders and you can't teach 70 grade raw power.
Beer goes to Houston who has no place to bat AJ Reed? Keep them in the pipe I guess.
I remember when dirt was just starting out. Back in my day we had lava and in it was good enough for us.
70 grade power? Keith Law says he will likely hit for average but his power his an "open question".
He’s still raking - 708 OPS with the Sox last year.
Moondog, other scouts speak differently on these points.
Here’s what some of Casas’ MLB scouting profile had to say about his bat: “Casas is all about his bat and the power he can produce with it. In terms of raw pop, he’s up there with just about anyone in the class, registering high exit velocities at various times.

25 to 30 HRs, but low batting average predicted here.
And.... "The bat has huge potential, though, particularly the power."
Both my children were born before him.
So you hush up. Or speak up so I can hear you and tell you to hush up.
I know nothing about Casas, but him teasing Sandoval,makes him my new binkie.
