    I would love to see a story where they signed a horde of the best remaining players who do not choose to try again next year. It seems like a cheap and easy method to acquire a lot of potential talent for a very low cost.

    Thoughts?
    Yeah. They can probably grab a bunch of college seniors. I’d imagine they will load up on college senior power arms

    Regardless of how many starters they have produced. These guys are complete lottery tickets, if they can turn the 20k to sign these guys into a 2nd or 3rd trade piece or a MLB reliever thats a huge win.

    As we covered, almost to death here in the past, its incredibly difficult to produce TORP especially consistently. Clevend,LA and Tampa are really the only ones that produce TOR arms consistently. Thats why it was a great move to get Clevelands top guy to be our director of pitching. Houston is the best at helping pitchers find their full potential.

    As far as Sevy being the only TORP we have deeveloped in a long time. I would beat heavily that is going to change with this huge group of talented arms we have coming

    Well I do hope you are right that the yanks have something in all these arms they are signing . But I won’t hold my breath on them yet

    What could possibly be your reasoning that u don't like them signing as many of the top guys that didn't get drafted? The 20k? If one of these guys turns into anything close to an MLB starter thats a massive win for us

    Well, I hope there are very few righty pitchers. We know how easy it is for them to get the ball pulled over the short porch in left field.

    As Dayners has suggested what is the downside? At 20K per if one makes the roster it's a HR! Please keep in mind these are UNDRAFTED lottery tickets. Yanks spend more on pre and post game buffet! (Although with CC retired the costs have come down)

    Interesting article on Bleacher report talking about our 1st round pick Wells with MILB director Oppenheimer. I thought it was very interesting that Oppenheimer was so quick to say that he's had lousy coaches defensively, they believe they can improve his defense very quickly, also that Yanks had Well going higher in the draft and were surprised he got to them.

    I really do hope they can improve his defense like they think they can stay behind the plate where his value is highest

    How did I take a contrary position when I said I hoped you were right ? If anyone is desperate to argue it seems to be you . I mean you even stated it was a lottery with these prospects which is what I meant when I said I wouldn’t hold me my breath on these prospects until they are in the majors . Please read my post before jumping to a conclusion.

    how i the world is that statement make it sound like you approved of the signings, your comment is like why bother. These are trash un drafted college guys and we suck at developing starting pitching anyways so why bother even signing them
