So basically get Peterson signed, and then try to sign Taylor. Is Huffman going to sign?

Taylor should be signable for just $125k.

I'd rather sign Huffman than him anyway. Wouldn't be surprised if they had to go overslot for him.

I would put it at 50/50 that there's another signing after Peterson.

He prefers to sign for $10,000 next year as opposed to $100,000 this year? OK.

Even with the signings of Vientos and Hutchinson, not signing Peterson would make this a failing draft.

Reports are Peterson is in New York. Would think that means a signing is coming very soon.

Well, there is no other option but "very soon."

Maybe he cried because he knew TJ surgery would come with the Warthen slider...

I want to sign him.


But I'd be lying if I said I was thrilled with the 4th starter upside/#3 "ceiling" some had on him.

Yeah, and if you're using the "He's 19" logic, then I guess the best report a scout could give us is:


"I have no idea. He's a teenager. He may go through 5 arm surgeries between now and his 30th birthday. He may add a pitch. He may lose a pitch. He may put on 30 lbs and add velocity. He may put on 50 lbs and eat his way out of the league. I literally have no idea what he is going to be."

But thats not what these guys are paid to do, nor what we are looking for them to do, right?

He's lefty...always a plus. He made adjustments that made a big difference. Not sure that pitching projections and slot are very accurate.

Besides we'd kill for a 3 slot pitcher right now.
