    Isn't over 5% where they would lose their first round pick?

    I got a chance to catch his last start. I was along the...

    Romero made his second start last night, and while he only gave up 1 run in 4 IP, he had a bit tougher time of it than he did in his first appearance.

    Berrios started falling a part a bit (presumably due to fatigue) around this time last year. That said, his first half has been even better than last year and he's already pitched a lot more innings...

    Jeez, small sample size much? He had 6 Ks in 5 innings in his first start. I wouldn't sweat a single performance.

    Reports are that he's added a few more MPHs to his fastball this year and his...

    Goodrum is currently trying to pull himself out of the worst cold streak he's had this season. His 4 singles in his last 4 games (14 ABs) are encouraging but he hasn't had an extra base hit since...

    Toronto and Milwaukee both got some great talent with their three picks, it'll be interesting to see if they are able to sign them all.

    I'm not sure how signable the top available high school talent is. I'd still like to see the Twins get some high school pitching. I like Keaton McKinney and Keith Weisenberg as projectable guys with...

    I'm going to go with Joey Gatto.

    I'd like Jacob Bukauskas, but I don't think he'll fall.

    I'm happy with it. Took me a little while to come around on him but the scouting reports only seemed to get better as the draft approached.

    I'm hoping for a high upside HS arm in the second round.

    MLB is lower on him than any other ranking I've seen. Kiley McDaniels has him 36th, most other rankings I've seen have him 60th or so. So it's a possibility.

    Goodrum's been a bit unlucky since my last update, going only 4 for 30 in the week+ span. However, one of those hits was his first home run on the season. He also notched another double, so he...

    I would agree that DIPS don't translate exactly to the minor league levels as the coefficients are based on regressions to major league rates. These rates surely vary from level to level, but the...
