    Draft Pick
  1. Baker

    2019 MLB draft thread

    Can possibly add Carter Stewart to the Top 5 mix. The #8 pick last June didn’t sign with Atlanta , but will be draft eligible in 2019.
  2. Moncada should have had a glove on it before it hit his knee. Weak effort.

    2019 MLB draft thread

    Langeliers generally considered a Top 5 pick next year. http://www.big12sports.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=10410&ATCLID=211719133
  4. The Sox, KC, and Balt are on a combined 0-20 run.

    Rutherford in today’s line-up. LuGo HR in 1st.

    FS: Nick Madrigal's Pro Debut, with video

    If Madrigal cracks the starting line-up, which combination makes for the better defense? Moncada 2b, NM at ss, Timmy OF. Or NM at 2nd, Timmy at ss, Moncada OF?

    Trade Deadline

    You can guesstimate trade value. 3+ years of 2 WAR player is about 7 WAR controllable. A dependable and versatile infielder perhaps a little more. A back-end Top 100 prospect is only worth 3-4 WAR controllable over six years. In the Brewers case that would equate to Ecreg + Ortiz for Yolmer.

    Eloy Injury Update

    By my count that’s Eloy’s 5th injury since we got him, and a few more before we got him. I’d say Lillian is right that he’s 1st/DH bound.
  9. I’m worried about the Tigers. That’s an outfit that knows how to run a proper Tanking. Finished last September with a 3-19 record. There is going to be some ungodly baseball in this division.

    Astros interested in Abreu?

    fWAR sits at -0.3 there at 1st base for the season. 3rd from bottom.

    Astros interested in Abreu?

    Nolan Arenado was out today publicity asking Rockies management for trade help. They need a 1st baseman bad. I think Abreu’s mentoring has run its course. Let’s make a deal.
  12. Detroit’s Iglesias is on his last year. Him and Madrigal would be a slick combo.
  13. Don Cooper needs to get on the elevator to the front office and tell them defense wins championships. The glove work is killing his boys.

    Sox @ Cleveland, 6/20, 12:10 CT

    This is reminding me of the Dale Sveum era.

    Astros interested in Abreu?

    Abreu is worth maybe 5 WAR over the next year and a half. Bukauskas would be worth close to that over a six year controllable career.
