    9 BB's to 7 K's in the DSL for a 17 year old? Very impressive.

    2019 MLB Draft and Signing Tracker

    I think that is the direction the draft will head similar to basketball. High school players will rule the draft, and it will take a college superstar to remain a top 10 pick. Development time in an advanced metrics MLB farm system will top most college programs for numerous reasons. College players are becoming financial fodder so that teams can truly draft the elite high school talent and sign them. https://www.baseballamerica.com/stories/draft-system-has-pushed-teams-to-pick-more-college-players/

    Not being a dick, but what leverage does a college junior have? You turn down multi-millions to come back and have zero leverage as a senior?

    The good news is that it usually goes right through you.

    ***Day 3 MLB Draft Thread Rounds 11-40***

    He had a nice showing in the cape cod league last year, but that's about it. Might be something to build off of, but from pure Texas Tech perspective, its sketchy.

    ***Day 3 MLB Draft Thread Rounds 11-40***

    As a Texas Tech fan/alum, I can tell you that is an uh.. odd pick. Basically filler.

    White Sox v Yankees 12:05pm Rodon Day

    Probably not much different at home either

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    Seems to be a case where Reinsdorf set a cap on the contract size around 250M or whatever, and tried to make up for any discrepancies by signing his best friends. Unsurprisingly, money wins out every time. No matter how you look at it, its a massive fail, and to make matters worse, KW is talking down to fans like the Sox "gave it the old college try" and simply lost out. Might have pushed my fandom past a breaking point unfortunately.

    Baseball Prospectus Top 101 Prospects

    The inability to develop high school position players is unfortunate. Seems like the Sox best option is to develop pitchers and trade them to an organization that develops position players.

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    Sox still have 3-4 roster spots for Trout family members

    2019 MLB draft thread

    Josh Jung would be a terrific option for the future at 3B as well. Haven't found a hole in his game yet. The only gripe would be "only" 12 homers last year, but he's going to have another bigtime year in a pretty loaded Texas Tech lineup.

    He had some believers in the BA top 100 lists, and a few other places. https://www.fangraphs.com/tht/top50prospects_2004_parttwo/
