    Except we didn't save the half million. He signed full slot.

    Amateur Draft Signings

    Am I the only one surprised Crochet received full slot? I believe a case could have been made that he might slide quite a few picks if not grabbed by Sox at 11. If we could have saved $500K and sprung for the 5% overage, it seems we could have secured a quality MI at 3 (Casy Martin?) Not complaining but just a bit miffed.

    Will There Be a 2020 Season?

    Figuring out the right thing to do is impossible. There is a difference between testing positive and being sick. There are also different permutations/degrees of sickness and wide variables relating to transmission activity/risks. I agree with the leagues viewpoint that positive tests are to be expected but the show will go on. If, as a result, MLB can model a framework that other spectator sports can follow, we all have reason to be optimistic.
  4. Has it been announced that Crochet received slot value?

    Trade for Howard

    Stipulating 2020 draft choices are not eligible to be traded but, in the interest of entertainment, lets say we make an offer to Cubs for Ed Howard. Would you consider sending Cease in exchange for Howard and Ian Happ?

    Has anyone read any commentary on WS draft? Any of the pubs opine on picks? Any mention among Winners/Losers?

    Horn isn't a throw away. He looks solid. I really like what we did. Going into Day 1 there is no way anyone (well maybe Kiley) expected us to emerge with Crotchet AND Kelley. The only thing that will possibly dampen my enthusiasm is if we find out we paid Crotchet slot or more (I doubt it). That means we could have signed Abel, who I preferred, although the system is lacking in fireballing LHrs so there's that.

    Guessing there is a fine line between collusion and gamesmanship. I don't know how the communications flow but it could be his commitment to Texas combined with perception he would be a difficult sign and maybe WS sending signals they would meet his demands (could be WS valued him above other teams) all converged.

    To venture a guess, Crochet will sign for $500K-$750K below slot but Kelley will require well over slot and possibly at or very near Crotchet. If WS intended to pay full slot at 11, Abel would/should have been choice. Guessing between the two of them we are @ $7M ish.

    Jimmy - do you have a sense for Crochet deal? Am guessing underslot but wonder how much headroom it enables for today?

    2020 Draft: Day 2 Discussion

    Only going by what I read. Carlos Collazo thinks he'll stick behind plate and loves the bat. Highlights I saw were positive. I'd rather have Dingler but Parada might be the best of the bunch. My preference for round 2 ...1) Kelley, 2) Dingler, 3) Wilcox
