Stating the obvious but "expected to sign".

A lot of guys in this draft come in throwing 100 mph, but you have less velocity and a ton of control, with an 140:15 strikeout to walk ratio this season. How have you focused on control?

“It’s been one of the things in the past I’ve been criticized about, whether by coaches or scouts or whoever it is. I haven’t had the best command or control, so that was a weakness that I really put a lot of attention and focus on. I wanted to limit the number of free bases I gave up, whether it was walking or hitting people. I’ve seen success when I don’t give up anything for free and make guys earn it. For me, this year I was ready to accept that challenge. Like I said, the consistency and a slight change in my delivery. I think it was just the limiting of free bases.”

But still.

If Dan O'Dowd were that smart drafting he'd still be in baseball and not a talking head.


IDK, I was also left feeling discouraged after the discussion, but it had more to do with John Manuel seeing him as a "3, 4, maybe even a #5" starter than Dan O'Dowd. Not every pitcher that we draft needs to throw 100 mph, but I get the sense that pitchers with the mid-to-back of the rotation profile are the type that we can find and afford on the free agent market. That said, he certainly made quite the leap this year. Hope he continues to develop and beats my expectations (and the expectations of last night's panel).

Mike Leake just got 5 years, $80 million as a #4 starter.

Also - how much could we have used another potential mid-rotation starter when our rotation started to crumble? More good pitching always gives more flexibility.

At #20 we aren't likely to get a guy with a decent probability of ace potential.

Fair enough re: Leake. It was somewhat of a surprise though, no? And it's not like it really compares that the contracts that Price, Greinke, etc. got.

Now it does seem like the Mets got solid value here, but I'm kinda surprised to see the praise for a relatively "low" risk/reward pick after people seemed so averse to the "safe" Warmoth pick. Was it a flaw that people saw in Warmoth?

No surprise. Cost for mid-rotations starters has continued to increase. Volquez got $11MM/yr. Hammel $8MM/yr. Morton $7MM/yr. If you could save that money and reallocate it elsewhere...

Matthew thinks he's a righty:

I used to be disgusted with that site, now I'm just amused.

Tanous confirms if/should Peterson sign he basically won't pitch this season 25 innings max
