  1. The Yankees 4th round pick, Adam Warren, has a 1.05 ERA and 2.43 FIP in 42 IP. 32 K, 6 BB, 2.60 GB/FB. He also had 33 consecutive scoreless innings. All this in the NY-Penn league.

  2. Marc,
    Why exactly is the attempt to limit the amount of money paid to Scott Boras ‘ridiculous’?

  3. Huntington’s task when he took over from Littelfield was so daunting and still is that it will be a long time before he can be properly judged but Tony Sanchez’s early performance, Alvarez’s hitting and the small army of projectable pitchers the Bucs signed have made Huntington look really good recently. A team like the Pirates has to draft well. Just ask Daniel Moskos.

  4. If Major League Baseball really wants to limit Boras’ impact, then they need to get the union on the phone and work out a solution to the slotting in baseball. With the economy the way it is, and last winter’s free agent mess, there has never been a better time.

  6. You italicised 7 triples in 193 AB’s but failed to do so for the much more impressive 6 in 122 AB’s. Just saying.

  7. Braden Tullis is an 8th round pick by the Rangers that’s probably the most intriguing of the later rounds for them. Check him out…

  8. Mitchell has been as advertised for the Sox. Great tools and a good plate approach as well.

    It looks like the team has finally decided to go with some high upside picks in the 1st round rather than whoever will sign below slot.

    Thank god.

  9. Matt Hobgood has been pitching for the Orioles for a little while. he has a 3.10 FIP in 13 and 2/3 innings

  10. True, but Sanchez at that spot is still ridiculous unless Pittsburgh can nab Miguel Angel Sano. Anybody heard anything about him lately?

  11. Would the players reps trade some of the phenomenal millions for untested prospects if the salary for all minor leaguers is raised to compensate?

    Right now, if you don’t get that massive bonus you are spectacularly underpaid for putting your life on hold to pursue the long long shot of making it in the bigs.

    It only works because athletes gotta be majorly self-delusional (and some portion of the minor league population may not be potential phd-candidates anyway).

  12. Well, the Nats didn’t severely fubar the slotting system, they got their man, and SS has a place to fulfill the dream of many (if not all) ML’ers: face of the franchise. Oh, and for an s-load of money. Hopefully this removes doubt as to Rizzo’s competence, not moving Guzman withstanding.

  13. For clarification, I am proud.

  14. why RBI’s? why????

    Comment by Jeff K — August 18, 2009 @ 6:08 am

  15. Really? Ridiculous? If Sanchez becomes Mike Piazza is it ridiculous? Let’s let it play out. Just because the Pirates didn’t pick who BA and you thought was the fourth best player doesn’t make it right or wrong. Performance makes it right or wrong. Put your grading hat back in the box for a few more years Richie.
