    Meyer scares me. Undersized right hander with a violent delivery. The Sox have been down that road before. Fool me once.....

    Yep and the HS guys hoping to get drafted who are comitted to mid-majors will end up at JC's and hope to get picked next year. I'm surprised the NCAA granted a year to everyone but it doesn't help their pro prospects any. They will just be a year older and teams that use models do not like older players.

    Yep especially if the NCAA isn't going to grant them another year of eligibility which knowing those assholes is the likely scenario. Manfred is a shortsighted whorebag. Rather than growing the game he's fucking over the players of the future so the billionaire owners can save a few bucks. They should all be ashamed of themselves.

    If it's 10 rounds then they should definitely use last years strategy. College guy in the first and over slot HS guys in the 2nd and 3rd. The key will be rather than signing college Sr's in rounds 5-10 finding college juniors or JC's guys who want to play and are willing to sign for nothing. That's an example of an area scout really knowing his players.

    Last year their 5th rounder signed for $10k. I think they would use the same strategy. Slot for the 1st, over slot 2nd and 3rd, under slot 4th and 5th. They obviously won't be able to over slot as much as last year on the 2nd and 3rd picks because they won't have the under slot money from rounds 6-10 but getting three good players out of this mess is about all you can hope for.

    No doubt a player would be wise to look at an organization where he would have the best path to the big leagues but ultimately it will be on the area scout to convince him it's with his organization. I wonder how much these money grubbing fucks are even going to allocate for these players. They may just sign a few for $5k and call it a day.

    There will be a small popularity aspect to it but much more important will be the relationship or lack thereof the area scout established with the player. It will be much more difficult for the teams who fired their scouts to sign these guys.

    Same strategy as last year. Over slot rounds 2-5 and sr signs the rest of the way. I guess there could be some manipulating here and there but with teams not getting good looks at players not sure there is much of a difference between the two. Another thing I don't understand is why bother moving it back and screwing up the '21 draft. They can do a 5-10 round draft right now.

    I'm not sure what the difference is between 5 and 10 rounds. If the bonus pools are the same rounds 7-10 will just be money savers anyway. If the NCAA votes not to grant another year those college seniors will get $1k. The players union sold amateurs out hard.

    My guess is they go with the '19 bonus pools. Billionaire's gotta save that $$$$$$.

    It sounds like the stupidity (ie greediness) of canceling the draft is over. It also sounds like they will move it back a couple weeks to the end of June. I think that's a mistake but oh well. There's no perfect solution to this mess but I woud rather it screw up one draft instead of two.
