    Yeah, probably a little column A (playing a ton) and column B (not being a physically gifted person, I need to stay two steps ahead with form. That said, I have a wonky *** stance - base is...

    Yeah, that's a completely different swing than the one in the cages. What I can't tell if he's just trying to hit bombs in that second video. Or if he's heard the feedback. Keith Law had mentioned...

    Wells has a clean swing. Nothing there that's overly concerning. No major leg kick. No weird hand motion. It's fairly compact and isn't long. He's...

    Repeatable, clean, and mechanically sound swings are the best. Truthfully, swings like, say, Javier Baez, are dangerous. Not because they can't work, but there's so much motion. Loopy swing, lots...

    I'm not huge on Mitchell. He's alright but his complete lack of game power right now is scary. I hate drafting guys in the first who have "theoretical" tools usually. And that's what you're doing...

    I read mocks, as many scouting reports I can find, and video of the swing. Also, for college kids, checking the stats. HS stats are pretty wonky and don't show much, so for HS kids I'll check the...

    No one shocking but a few "notable" names. Sitnnet, Burks, and De La Cruz all had moments of interest.

    Yeah, Burns seems to be trending down, and I'm hoping those mocks are based on what they're hearing from teams. I'm super interested in Burns in the 2nd, but hard pass from him at the top.

    Burns in the first is a hard pass for me. I know he's gotten some early love, but he just doesn't have the upside. His best quality if fastball command, but doesn't have particularly great...

    Yeah, there's a lot of variation here. Part of it is without a season, we have no idea. Someone like Crochet or Cavelli could have vaulted to a top 5-8 pick with strong years or be down in the...

    For me, I'd have a top 5 of something like this (not necessarily in order)
    Abel, Bitsko, Crochet, Wells (who I admit, I'm a bit higher on than others), Soderstrom if you believe you can keep him...

    Price is worth significantly less than John Fisher and can pay minor Leaguers.

    Something is wrong here when the players are offering to do the job of an owner. Kudos to Price for being a decent...

    Yeah they've done a great job trying to point the finger the players.

    That said, I still think there's a very real chance at this backfiring. I've got my fingers crossed, it does, at least.

    100%

    The owners are being hand over fist greedy here. And they're doing a fairly good job of it. At every juncture they're making it seem the players are the bad guys. "Ooooh the rich players...

    There's plenty of other interactions. People have romanticized the pitcher hitting. Pitchers hitting is boring. Watching Kyle Hendricks swing a bat is painful. I don't watch baseball to watch...

    Replacing the pitcher with the DH is going to help that. Pitchers struck out 43% of the time last year. DH's were at 25%.

    I get being used to the no-DH thing. I've always been a fan of the NL...

    Souza's not very good in the field. Probably best to let Schwarber take LF most days.

    I'm not so sure right now. There's enough people out there upset at the corporations and their buyouts still laying off employees.

    I have a feeling many will sympathize with them.

    I certainly won't vilify the players. I hope that no one will. They don't deserve to take the financial hit here. Owners don't up their yearly pay with sellouts. They don't need to give a penny...

    I'll state first off, I'm in no way worried about these reports. I've yet to see anything I'd deem credible that Carson Wentz was cowering in a corner refusing to play football even before anyone...

    Sounds fine. Tail end of his career. It's where he started.

    I loved his time here. He was truly a great Cubs SP. But he's also a BORP heading forward and if he'd like to go back to Boston to...

    The league isn't changing like this, however. The Eagles may have taken Jalen Hurts in the 2nd round, and maybe it's visionary, but let's be very clear; there's no evidence anyone else in the league...

    I think if you think that the worst thing that can happen with the Jalen Hurts pick is that we get a 2nd round draft pick out of him in a couple of years, you're way, way, way under estimating how...

    Maybe. Or maybe he won't get a 2nd round pick because it's a good draft. Or he played 3-4 games and didn't look amazing.

    Even at that, it's basically saying "Hey, will you give me $50 today? ...
