We've fallen below the 8th slot which is going to sting us because the Braves get a comp pick (#9) for not signing their '18 1st rounder.


So we'll be selecting one spot after the initial draft position unless we lose enough to get back into the top 8.

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?

I can't knock on it too much, since half those guys are on track to be first rounders, and its always nice to be reminded of the names out there.... but there is a lot of dart throwing going on there, and some really odd placements.

This isn't the draft where I want to play my way out of the top 10.... but its also hard to not enjoy seeing us play some good baseball to finish the year.

It's official, we will be picking 12th in the draft. We finished with the 11st worst record but move down a spot due to the Braves not signing Carter Stewart.

There was some good ball during this stretch run, and I hope those gains prove more fruitful then the talent gap between the 4/5 pick we were once looking at, and the 12 we finished with. Super early, but in this draft, that could be a no-man's land if trying to balance big upside with a fair floor.
