No, these guys aren't reliable enough in terms of developing into something useful to be doing things like that.

 

You also lose the bonus slot if you don't sign the guy, so your overall ability to sign guys goes down.

 

I think you can play some defense if you wanted after the 10th round, but a little harder to justify earlier.

 

Moreso when the draft was 40 rounds.

Sure, but the example was a 1st round pick.

Right, I agreed with you.  Defense can be a thing, but not early.

About to start with our 3rd round pick. Going out on a limb here and say we go with a big boy pitcher here.

Is Porter just falling because of signability concerns?

Don't like taking a catcher there unless they don't view him as a catcher long term. Feels like you're, at beat, drafting a guy with a backup catcher ceiling.

I have a dollar on Porter at 4-109.

 

What odds did you get?  Nice call.

Porter to the Rangers. That's a damned good use of their limited picks.

It was becoming pretty likely. Interesting decision by Texas. They get two top 30-40 guys with only a pick at 3 and 109. Not bad.The issue is obviously Rocker and how damaged the goods are.

They still gotta convince Porter to sign.  They can only throw about $4.85M at him if Rocker at $5.2M is accurate.

Would expect the Os to pop an overslot Top 100-150 kid in the next 4 or 5 rounds

Would think they have it on good authority they can get him. Wonder if he is also a Boras guy

Unless they choose to pay the penalty.

Nobody ever has, but sure, they could.  They would lose next year's 1st round pick if they give him up to a $5.35M bonus.  1st and a 2nd for a $5.85M bonus.  Next two 1sts for a $5.85M+ bonus.

I think they’ve got something in place already which is why he was dropping. They let word get out of what they had agreed to and said good luck if anyone wants to beat it go ahead.

I thought that number and draft spot were very particular for Kumar, it was a little fishy. Good on them for being bold.

Trace Bright, pitcher out of Auburn.

Unranked in the top 300. Definitely not an over slot guy.

They have to have deals in place.  Really surprised they gave Rocker 5.2M, I thought that might bump them off the pick, but they have to know their numbers.  Rocker at 3.5M would have seemed more reasonable.  Again, get where you want to get.

 

Crazy interesting strategy for a team losing picks on FA compensation.

 

Now they just need everyone healthy and pitching well.  Leiter ERA up to 6.30 at AA.

Helium guy. Threw very well in CWS.

They know what they are doing.

That’s one of their “things” they put a lot more value on the most recent performance than overall history.

Like the Clemson kid.
