    I noticed the names we drafted seemed to be popular or known names, it made me wonder if the choices were made based on notoriety or if it was just coincidence that the more known kids were the ones we had atop our board

    Mize was regularly regarded as the top big in a not so great draft
    Meadows is the brother of a super prospect
    Clemens is the son of Roger

    I actually had to look up to see if Adam Wolf was related to Randy because that would be a crazy amount of coincidences

    In the past the Tigers have also drafted Patrick Leyland (8th round) and Ben Verlander (14th round).

    The baseball draft is 40 rounds so teams usually waste picks on former players children and relatives. They also signed/drafted Zumaya's brother and Gibson's son.

    LK, if you follow my posts, it's been more than one game that I have problems with, in fact, it's a whole lotta games......against good teams.....that I have problems with Mize. This is from my post back on 5/18/18:

    "So, Iím off the Casey Mize boat. I just went in and looked at his stats this year, which are nothing to sneeze at, but what a difference once he started hitting good teams. He started out with a 5-0 record and a 1.94 era but it was against the likes of Longwood College, Bryant University, BYU, and Northeastern College. He had a great first game when the competition got a little better against Texas A&M but after those first 5 games he is 4-3 with an earned run average over 4.00 so itís a huge difference. He is still getting his strike outs and still keeping his base on balls down but with the injury history and now this, I donít think I would take him with the first pick in the draft."

    It's a pattern with Mize not one isolated incident. Again, I'm not holding it against him now that he's a Tiger. I just want improvement from here.

    I am glad. Also glad we took Clemens. Both Mize and Clemens under slot, should have an extra 700K or so to play with to finish the deal with Meadows. Not too bad of a draft at all IMO.
