    You're wrong on MLB's involvement with regards to our "leverage". If they were forced to "step in", it would almost certainly be to the benefit of us because there is no way in hell that the MLB...

    FanGraphs uploaded the following video of RHP Juan Meza (our top IFA signing last year) a few days ago:

    You remember Matt Bush or Tim Beckham? I guess no one should ever get excited about picking 1st overall in the Draft either. Strong logic.
  4. Sticky: Yeah, okay. Our last "big dollar" IFA's have...

    Yeah, okay. Our last "big dollar" IFA's have been Barreto, Osuna, and Urena. All three made BA's Top 10 in our system. One of them was just used as a center-piece in a trade that landed us one of...

    Moncada will cost too much for Rogers to fund the risk on a teenage kid who won't even contribute right away.

    Its not strange. We lost our first round pick on Martin, then traded another one of our best prospects and two other solid prospects away. We filled Cabrera's spot on the roster, therefore it...

    Seriously? Osuna's name gets mentioned all the time, albeit under the pretense that he is still working his way back from surgery.
  8. Poll: His lack of patience at the plate is likely too...

    His lack of patience at the plate is likely too significant for him to ever achieve real consistent success. He swings too much, period...and you have to be a special hitter to overcome that deficit...

    Sure, but Labourt has a promising slider as well. His fastball however looks much more dangerous, overpowering plus pitch type ability there.

    Labourt probably has the higher ceiling between the two. He was throwing legit mid 90's in Vancouver and maintaining that velocity.

    Yeah, I know he said $4.5, but Kiley McDaniel's latest buzz has sources telling him that the deal is for $3.2 million which is why I put in that $3-4+ million range. I've noticed that a lot of the...

    Very loose rumor: a Dominican-based poster on another Blue Jays forum claims that he's heard that the Jays have reached an agreement with 2015 IFA Vladimir Guerrero Jr. for $3-4+ million as per...

    A low BABIP doesn't automatically indicate "luck". Extreme ground-ball pitchers can post seemingly unsustainable BABIP because they have the ability to induce poor contact. Poor contact equals lots...

    Yes. Kohl Stewart was a 4-star QB as well.



    Zach Lee. Signed with LSU to play QB.

    The multi-sport HS star isn't rare, there is usually at least one every year. Jameis Winston, who won the...

    He'll be in fall instructional league, then they are looking to send him to Australia for winter ball.
  16. Poll: He's gotten some BS calls on strikes out of the...

    He's gotten some BS calls on strikes out of the zone (Gose 3rd strike looking, Lind strike two in that last at-bat for example), but he's pretty much painted the outside all night long. When you can...
  17. Poll: The guy is pitching well and is hitting his...

    The guy is pitching well and is hitting his spots...who gives a **** what his AAA ERA is? He's starting this game for a reason. Look at that at-bat against Bautista literally right now: 3 strikes...

    No, you can't. Guys that low in the minors don't get hype just because they throw hard. The ones we have that you are referring to (Labourt, Tirado, etc.) are hyped because they have secondary...

    Sure, but if we take Giolito with the first pick there is a more-than-real chance that we would have passed up Stroman with the second pick in order to take someone who would have signed for...

    His average is 97 and 97.1 for the two classifications of fastballs that PitchFX identifies for him.

    His peak velocity is 99.4 mph.

    Because he had TJ surgery.

    Its called the biggest jump in the minors (A+ to AA) and a small sample size. He had 0 walks today in 6.2 innings. Nobody said he was a finished product ready to dominate the MLB level.

    Rowdy Tellez 4 for 5 with a HR, 2B, and BB. On fire the past ~20 games.

    Richard Urena 3 for 5 with a 2B and a BB. Average up to .329. Nobody expected him to hit this well.

    Nothing against him, just an observation on a player that we were very interested in who I was surprised got the money he ended up getting from the Mariners. When I saw $2 million I assumed they...
