2019 Draft!!!

Sun Jun 10, 2018 8:56 pm

As we wait for news of our '18 class signings, and with college ball still going on, figured it was a good time to get started up!

Right now Graeme Stinson is lighting up a dangerous Texas Tech team. Assuming he stays in the rotation next year, he might be heading towards a top-10 pick. A physical monster, touching 98, with a slider and change.... if his freshman-to-be RHP brother is half as good as he, it'll be a fun rotation to watch.

Can't lie, after I posted it I thought about the fact if this skid goes another week you could probably twist my arm into buying into the "Tank for Bobby Witt" race. In reality our pitching is too good, and we would likely even find lack of success at being doormats.

We still keep our 1st after signing Harper and Machado, right?

Bobby Witt will be a stud

Sure looks it. He could potentially get bored and plateau a bit, in which case the age-hunters could sour on him enough to drop him out of #1. At this point though, he looks like he could lose half-a-step and still look a lot like Brendan Rodgers. So I like his chances to go wire to wire.

I don't think there is anyway this team call fall far enough to get the number one pick. I see us around 8 to 10. I would like to target Josh Jung the 3rd baseman from Texas Tech . Real good hitter and real good defensively.

After seeing Stinson, he might be my target since he'd still have work to do to finish top-10

We’ve already *fallen* to a tie for the 7 pick.

Perfect Game's National Showcase this weekend down in Florida. Pretty much sets the HS rankings heading into the summer showcase tour, and also essentially stamps the invites for the All-American game.

We will be top 3 when all is said and done.
