    Yeah, we have to take advantage of the 17 games before those 14.

    Love that we end the season against the Cubs. If one or both are in the hunt for the playoffs, those games will be crazy.

    Opening against the Twins. Nice! Friday, July 24 at home at 7:10 PM.

    Will There Be a 2020 Season?

    Is this an educated guess, or have they talked about this? Will there only be 3 game series?

    Will There Be a 2020 Season?

    Just settle on 64 games, for f***s sake.

    What did Passan say?

    Will There Be a 2020 Season?

    So when does everybody expect things to be finalized? Something has to happen this week, right?

    What would you have rather seen from this draft?

    I don’t think he’s talking about getting both. He’s saying if Crochet comes in at slot, then we could have had Abel/Kelley or Howard/Kelley, and he would prefer one of those combos.

    Love what we did. Rounds 3-5 were going to be long shots even if we went slot. Grab two high ceiling pitchers and hope for the best. If one hits, it’s a success. If both hit, it’s one of the best drafts you could imagine.

    2020 Draft: Day 2 Discussion

    Thanks for your input. So what’s your take on Kelley, specifically? I know you touched on it above, but do you like his chances of staying healthy? Or are the odds too much in favor of high school arms flaming out for you to ever feel good about somebody’s chances?

    2020 Draft: Day 2 Discussion

    Here’s an article that discusses some of things you are asking about. The part about Blake Snell touches on your question because he was only throwing 90 when drafted and was allowed to grow into his velocity. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.si.com/.amp/mlb/2018/11/19/mlb-draft-high-school-pitchers-velocity-tommy-john-surgery-problem
  12. Yeah, pretty dumb way to ask that question on my part. When you go under slot with a guy, there has to be an agreement in place that allows you to go over slot in future rounds, right? Does that stuff not leak?
  13. When do we find out how much under slot it was?
