    The 2018 MLB Draft Thread (Tracker in OP)

    After taking a year off with Burger the White Sox go back to drafting exactly who I wanted with their first pick. :) Missed with Fulmer but hard to argue too much with any of the others.

    He's actually pretty much walking the same amount he did earlier in the season, and the same he has for his MiLB career. The K's are a bit down from earlier and the ISO up, but again, they're only coming more in line with his typical figures. A BABIP improving from .100 to .280 will have a bigger impact than a K% going from 34 to 28. Agree to disagree my friend.

    Palka mightn't be nothing. Has been an above-average hitter at every single stop. Former KATOH Top 100 prospect.

    It's literally as simple as people were freaking out that he was hitting about .100 when 2 of his first 20 balls put in play landed for hits. It's not as if it's overly impressive to point out that someone walking 20% of the time, striking out 30% of the time and BABIPing .100 will probably have a perfectly fine batting line in a couple of weeks time, it's just common sense. Yet there was people saying there was something fundamentally wrong with his approach. Now his BABIP is normal and his line is good, lo and behold, he's suddenly had a big change in his fundamental approach? Not for me. I've caught a couple of his recent games and he seems like pretty much the same hitter he's always been.

    He has been K'ing less, but by far the most notable statistical development for Collins over the past 10 days has merely been his balls put in play have started falling. It's not like he's radically altered his approach overnight.

    Only a little over a week since me and others were telling people not to worry about Collins, now his OBP is over .400. Sometimes it really is as simple as the BABIP.

    Might be worth reading what I said. I said he's not been great this year but he's been largely good as a minor-leaguer so far and with some normal luck he'd basically have been fine this year in a small sample-size.

    Might be frustrating at times but he's had wRC+'s of 151, 133 and 166 at his 3 extended stops so far before this year. You can't say it's not largely working overall unless you think he's suddenly lost any ability to get hits on balls in play.

    Your 2018 AL Rookie of the Year Eddy Alvarez was 1-3 with a homer and 2 walks tonight. Was 2-2 with a walk, a double and a SF on his season debut.

    I know people are down on him, but Zack Collins is walking 27.7% of the time, top of the Southern League, next highest is 20.6%. He's running a .059 BABIP. If he had last year's .283 BABIP, he'd have an OBP of .404. He also had a wRC+ of 166 at Birmingham last year. He's not been great but far too much doom and gloom about him. I think he'll be fine.

    QUOTE (daggins @ Apr 4, 2018 -> 07:38 PM) Ready 2 extend Jose Abreu pls No rush at all given the 1B market. Also, perhaps I'm wrong, but it feels like he's the sort of guy who'd ultimately accept any reasonable offer in lieu of testing the market. I seem to recall some comments of his hoping he's a White Sox lifer.

    QUOTE (Dick Allen @ Apr 4, 2018 -> 07:32 PM) Probably but they will all be up at some time this year. Unless of course they suck so bad or get hurt in the minors. Yup, you'd just like them to have enough of a track record to get some trade value. Speaking of trades, just looked up the guys the A's got back in the Donaldson trade. Man does that look rough for them.
