The season is upon us, even if spring is not.

2018 MLB Draft Picks
#18
#33 - Compensation (Eric Hosmer)
#34 - Compensation (Lorenzo Cain)
#40 (Competitive Balance Round A)

018 Draft Names to Watch

RHP Kumar Rocker, N Oconnee HS, Georgia.
Spoiler!

OF Jarred Kelenic, Waukasha West HS, WI
Spoiler!

1B Triston Casas, American Heritage HS (FL).
Spoiler!

RHP Carter Stewart, Eau de Gallie HS (Ga).
Spoiler!

ANY Any, Any (Any). Any current top projected pick who slides for injury concerns. Includes current top prospect prospect SP Brady Singer, U of Florida.

Current Prospects to Watch:

OF Seuly Matias - Huge tools. Hit 2 HR in Lexington (A) season opener.

1B Nick Pratto - Top pick in 17 has advanced approach and good glove; needs to start tapping into power in first full year in minors. Also at Lexington.

OF Michael Gigliotti - Good defender in CF, good OBP skills, plus baserunner. Next mainstay in CF for KC, IMO. Advanced college bat also starting at Lexington.

OF Khalil Lee - Probably has highest upside in Royals' system. Could hit 30 HR in majors, could steal 30 bases. Plus defensive ability in RF. Nice test at Wilmington this year.

3B Emmanuel Rivera - Really nice approach and good contact skills. Power is still developing. Also getting a good test at Wilmington.

SP Foster Griffin - Made nice strides in 2017. Needs to continue to progress in 2018. Could be a lefty version of Jakob Junis (good breaking ball that he can really manipulate, OK fastball, good command).

1B Samir Duenez - Duenez still is intriguing, hoping for a step forward in his power production this year at Northwest Arkansas, which would turn him into a legit prospect.

Others to keep an eye on:
SP Gerson Garabito (Wilmington), OF Marten Gasparini (Lexington), C MJ Melendez (Lexington), RP Tyler Zuber (lexington), RP Richard Lovelady (Omaha), SP Dan Tillo (Lexington), SS Nicky Lopez (NWA), SP Scott Blewett (NWA), OF Brewer Hicklen (Idaho Falls),

In general, Lexington and Wilmington are the most interesting spots to watch. Nice depth and a lot of interesting pieces at both.

Some lean years ahead but can we talk about what a stud Junis is? Duncan do you think he'll be around for the next wave of winning or eventually traded for a few more pieces?

What about pulling a Salvy and locking him up early at a cheap rate? He will be late 20s when the next wave comes up. Maybe the James Shields of that group

You weren’t right about a few things last season, dude, and why you had issues here is that you never acknowledged it and instead doubled down instead of having nuanced conversations about the issues.

No one was giving us anything for Hosmer, Cain, Moose or Esky. We got more value from the draft picks we got for them than we would have from selling them.

In 2016, we tried to trade Cain and Wade (and eventually traded Wade and Dyson). No one wanted Eric groundball Hosmer and Moose had torn his ACL, eviscerating his value.

While you had merit to critique Moore’s desire to buy-buy-buy (especially last offseason) just dropping in to say “THEY SHOULD BLOW THE TEAM UP - I WAS RIGHT” isn’t actually saying anything, because there was no way to blow the team up when we weren’t getting anything back for the pieces you were advocating we should trade.

With that said, I hope you stick around - and I do hope we can compromise on this issue here - because I do genuinely like your takes.

I appreciate it and we will agree to disagree on somethings but that's in the past now. It is disheartening seeing some jump off the bandwagon. Losing sucks but it's fun watching guys come up. Moore has made some boneheaded mistakes in the past but nothing like Allard Baird or Herk Robinson. I trust that he will be able to add talent again. In the meantime enjoy the few good players we have and hopefully ticket prices drop. Fun times at the ball park getting plastered with friends!

Also not to be dismissive of your point Chiefs and Duncan you're right the value back was minimal at best but even if they made it to the playoffs last year's team wasn't doing shit. Again we'll agree to disagree but the process was delayed a year. Suppose in the long run it won't matter much.

I’ll never have a problem with them going for it before 2016 (and no one should, ever. You don’t dismantle a WS winner two years before you have to) or before 2017. After so many decades of having no chance to win, it was RIGHT for them to try to maximize that group of players and go for it.

Considering the garbage returns available for position players in 2017 at the deadline, there’s also no problem with keeping guys (not to mention the fact they were in the driver’s seat for a playoff spot at that point).

Jay, Moustakas, and Duda are no-risk propositions. Short deals that don’t block anyone this year who deserves a shot and major Pt.

Even though none is likely to bring a major return at the deadline (though needs could be different and shift that market this year, who knows?) it’s also not a bad thing to have some trade capitol.

The Braves, particularly, if they stay in it could be a good match for Moustakas. They have a deep farm system and could move an interesting pitching prospect for him if they decide to go for it. Their 3B stud prospect, Austin Riley, probably isn’t ready to help this year, but an upgrade at that spot could help them a ton if they’re trying to make a push in 2018.
Agree on jay, moose, and Duda, especially if you can flip one for a prospect. I’d love to hear your thoughts on the soria trade. How did that fit into the plan?

He doesn’t even have a year of service time yet, so this is technically his first year (of six) of team control.

I like Junis a lot, as I mention d earlier this week in the old thread. I’m a believer that he can be a good 2/3 type starter with sustaining the changes he made in August of last year (basically, he started throwing a sinker, too).

He’s not even arb eligible until 2021 at this point. I think he’ll be around for the next wave of winning, barring injury.

Kennedy looked good today. I haven't been supporting him, but the 1 out strikeout with the runner on third was great pitching.

I’ve been right about the Chiefs for 20+ years.

But at least I like football, douche.
