    2019 MLB draft thread

    Hostetler’s podcast with Garfein was a snoozer. Hardly any specific discussion on players and strategy.

    I’m in same boat. Agonizing on decision between Abrams and Vaughn. Makes it tough that our division rivals pick at 2 and 5 so we could see Abrams or Vaughn playing against us. I still think it is Vaughn, but today I want Abrams.

    If Abrams could be compared to Kenny Lofton in his prime then I am sold; however, I still think the pick is Vaughn if he is there.

    I still believe Abrams is only an option of Vaughn has already been selected.

    If Vaughn is there at #3, he’s the pick. Book it.

    I think Sox are using due diligence just in case Vaughn is off the board when they pick at #3. The pick is absolutely Vaughn if he is there. Book it.

    Anyone have any idea as to what Burdi's velocity was on his heater last night?

    I live in Springfield and Ozzie and Reinsdorf were both at the State Capitol yesterday to lobby for sports betting. With that, it’s clear from observing from a far that Ozzie is on the Reinsdorf payroll as they were quite chummy. It’s so ironic that his thread was started as after seeing them together I wondered if there was ever a chance Ozzie would manage the Sox a lot. People who were with them say he spoke of his son managing in the minors a lot.

    I was out the Birmingham game today. A couple of Jackson pitchers who are not prospects made Adolfo, Sheets, and Rutherford looks awful in some breaking pitches. Terrible base running as well. Chris Getz was at game today Did not engage much though If you ever go to Birmingham, take a visit to Rickwood Field. Alvin the wonderful groundskeeper let us walk in field, pitchers mound etc. it was awesome and gave me chills.

    My thoughts is that the Sox front office promised the Winston Salem management that Robert and Madrigal would be with the team for a certain amount of time for the draw. Not sure how long, but just a crazy thought.
