Some experts on the other board are miffed.When you draft #2 you s/get premium, 5-tool talents w/your top pick or two, not guys who could be real good if...Kjerstad was shown as a CF on the first thing I saw. Now it seems he'll hopefully stay in the outfield. Seems to have declined.The last thing they need is a DH/LF type w/the second pick in the entire draft.It's like the Ravens taking a mediocre placekicker w/their first pick.

Joe Biden has spent his entire life trying to succeed in presidential politics,and now he has. Too bad he’s not there to enjoy it.

I don't know what the hell they are thinking.

They don't have the luxury of a ninth round pick blossoming and suddenly bailing them out. Their picks needed to be solid. I doubt if they can even sign their 4th and 5th rounders.

The pre-draft rumor was they take this turd with the second pick, and use the money they save to go overslot on those late picks. If I'm the turd taken with the second pick though, I'm holding out for second pick slot money. I'm the second best amateur player in the country, right? Why should I give you a discount? He would probably have to give up millions to tempt the high schoolers to skip top college programs like Florida and TCU.

Maybe the idea was to waste the fourth and fifth round picks to sign the first three.


Progressives lack compassion and tolerance. Their self-aggrandizement is all that matters.

They signed the 4th and 5th round picks. That puts a hell of a different face on this draft. They were considered unsignable high school studs. And the signing of the million man army of undrafted players has begun. Somebody's gonna make their bones in that scrum.

Roch: "Servideo, the grandson of former Orioles outfielder Curt Belfary, is rated as a plus defender and runner." Today's blog post has a lot more about this kid.

Servido is the only notable unsigning now. They have more than enough dough left for that slot. So they've done what they set out to do this draft. I'm less bummed about it than I was.
