2021 MLB Draft Day 1 Thread

Recommended Posts

Was hoping to add a hs SS in Howard last year, but here we are with Montgomery.  Will be interesting to follow. Been a while since we picked this low.

I know nothing here other than reading the profile, but a 19 year old playing Midwestern high school ball doesn't excite me.

Just curious why you guys love Montgomery so much? Law has him at 56...

Is this the Law that hated Chris Sale or a different one?

He is not even one of top 5 available right now, don’t see the love affair either.

Kiley McDaniel has him in the 13th best draft prospect if that makes any of you feel better

What’s wrong with his left arm? Why can’t he hug like a human?

All time leading scorer for his HS basketball team, starting QB on his football team, and now a 1st round draft pick.

Nothing more undervalued in drafts than Northern high school kids! Less reps means more to work with and grow from.

It's the baseball draft. Top available if you like a guy is completely meaningless imo.

It's terrible.  He'll be 20 before next season starts.  They basically took a college player again without the benefit of playing college competition.

He better be underslot allowing us to take a first round talent in the 2nd round.  Otherwise it's bad value.

Alright, watching his hoops highlights makes me feel better. Bulls can use him if things don't work out... I kid. Glad to see Kiley high on him. I wonder what the hit rate on midwest kids is. This was definitely not a BPA pick...that is why I question it.

@Harold's Leg Lift

Thoughts on Montgomery? 

I haven't been paying attention as much because the Sox aren't at the top of the draft. 

I know we think similarly on prospects.

He's like a right handed Garrett Crochet.

I love people being critical of baseball draft picks.

I know nothing about the kid, but I like northern high school kids because they oftentimes can be overlooked tbe most. Sesms like a great athlete and I loved his swing.
