  1. Sticky: I don't remember saying anything on the contrary....

    I don't remember saying anything on the contrary. Giolito wasn't even available for us, so the entire hypothesis altogether is pointless.



    I have no idea what you just said here. Here's my...
  2. Sticky: I don't get the reaction. Had Giolito been...

    I don't get the reaction. Had Giolito been available, we very likely would have drafted him. However, had we drafted Giolito, we almost certainly wouldn't have drafted Stroman with our very next...
  3. His stuff was down back when he was looking like...

    His stuff was down back when he was looking like **** in the minors as well (ie: high 80's velocity). Then he re-found it for a short period of time in the majors, before he lost it again. So while...
  4. Romero really wasn't a "million times better" at...

    Romero really wasn't a "million times better" at all, hence why advanced metrics predicted his demise big time. The year he put up a 2.92 ERA his FIP was 4.20 for example. Romero struggled with...
  5. All of Hutch's peripherals suggest that he is a...

    All of Hutch's peripherals suggest that he is a much better pitcher than we have seen this season, just remember that. His .350 BABIP is the 2nd highest in the league among qualified starters. His...

    Major injury? You're talking about a knee injury for a guy who's talent is generated by his arm. Its 2015; ACL injuries are rarely devastating anymore, you see guys in the NFL coming back from the...
  7. Sticky: He's 15. If he was 16, he would have been in...

    He's 15. If he was 16, he would have been in this year's IFA class.

    It is an extremely rare case. Last year there were only four guys drafted within the first 5 rounds (that is ~165 picks) who didn't sign. One was Aiken who didn't sign because a medical red flag...

    If they didn't want to sign, they wouldn't have been selected.

    Its not similar. With Darvish, it was a New Hampshire Fishercats beat writer/blogger (who no one had heard of before) who had claimed that sources inside the organization had told him that they had...

    This isn't even remotely comparable to the Darvish situation.

    Both will sign for slot.

    Both will sign for slot.
  13. Sticky: His ISO is up nearly 30 points; from .103 to...

    His ISO is up nearly 30 points; from .103 to .132. His line drive percentage has almost doubled from 6.5% to 12.9%. Again, the improvement is noticeable.
  14. Sticky: He's still ~1.9 years younger than average for...

    He's still ~1.9 years younger than average for the Midwest League. He was 3 years younger than average last year. Combine that with the fact that he was a super young HS player with minimum...
  15. Sticky: He sits low 90's and touches 94 at times. His...

    He sits low 90's and touches 94 at times. His velocity is up, but his secondary stuff is still pretty much the same.

    Baseball Prospectus actually just wrote about him:
  16. Sticky: Matt Boyd is not a soft tosser. He throws 90-94...

    Matt Boyd is not a soft tosser. He throws 90-94 and his fastball is actually his best pitch. He isn't a top prospect because his secondary pitches are all pretty average, which is going to be a...
  17. Sticky: It is highly unlikely that AA would be making the...

    It is highly unlikely that AA would be making the pick at #56. That would almost certainly come down to Brian Parker, the Amateur Scouting Director.

    I haven't seen much talk of us being connected...
  18. Sticky: Yes, but he isn't a top prospect. Miles Gordon...

    Yes, but he isn't a top prospect. Miles Gordon from Oakville is a superior OF prospect and ironically looks more like Dalton Pompey in terms of prospects status than Tristan Pompey does. Gordon is...
  19. Sticky: HS CF Eric Jenkins has gotten as much (or even...

    HS CF Eric Jenkins has gotten as much (or even more) press than Richie Martin. Both guys get a lot of run with connection to us. HS 3B Ke'Bryan Hayes is another we have some interest in according...
  20. Sticky: Borucki will start in Lansing. There is zero...

    Borucki will start in Lansing. There is zero point in him returning to Vancouver, he is too advanced for that level.

    His prospect status will depend on his velocity. Lots of reports had him as...

    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.
  24. 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.
