sounds like he's a left fielder but can really hit.You're right, I'll leave Elmer and his name alone.
Meanwhile despite the Pirates picking Davis, we did get a C after all with Hickey. Hopefully he leaves his mark.
He finished with double digit strikeouts in 11 of his 12 starts, if I recall correctly.Yep I saw him up close this year. Swing and miss stuff but has control problems at times.
Maybe there are some future trades to be made as Boston and Cleveland focus on their respective comparative advantages.Cleveland can't develop a bat, so they've just given up on the concept… 10 of their first 11 picks are college pitchers, including three out of Florida (not the entire state, just the University). This seems like a disaster.
Couldn’t have picked a better year for Cora to have been suspended.Was just looking back at last season’s schedule. The Sox played 4 extra inning games and lost all of them, including one crucial game against the O’s who finished one game behind the Sox (in Tankathon terms).
As a reminder, only 2 games separated #4 from #11. And it landed us the top prospect in the draft. Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than, uhh, bad?
This would make sense in the context of our farm. Our 15th ranked farm is only ranked this highly because we have the highest amount of 40FV players at 18 players.I can't remember if I've seen any reporting definitively on the status of his signing, but I did stumble across this local news piece and interview on YouTube and can't tell what kind of confirmation this would be:
At 1:03, Marcelo's father says their advisor called after the first pick and said they had an agreement with Boston, Marcelo was happy with it, and that the next few picks were very stressful. This would seem to indicate that the Sox have plans to sign both Mayer and Fabian, even if it means going over slot to do so. Apologies if that is a "duh"-level of analysis . I'm not enough of a draftnik to say whether this is obvious to anyone else, or if the remaining picks on day 2 further cement that.
