    Not saying turn down Dubrule. I'm saying that the 5-Round Draft left behind many good players. An 13th round senior 3B is basically Gavin Collins. A 17th rounder is Mitch Moreland. A 23rd rounder is Brett Pirtle. A 6th rounder is Pete Young.

    Yeah, it's not just finding players you want, the particular players also needed to jump into the transfer portal.

    Elko is a good player. Prob an all sec guy.l this year.

    He is not in the same league as Rooker and would not sniff a triple crown. Rooker had a generational type year in 2017. Like .410 with 23 HR. Hell he hit .350 with 10 HR in 2016.

    No, you're right. Mac is the better comparison, as Gun pointed out.

    They're both white. That's where the similarities end.

    We've never really had a player that profiles like him as far as MLB goes. But the fact of the matter is Elko is a good leader for them and an impact bat in their lineup.

    Parrish is reporting that Elko is definitely out for 2 weeks but may put off surgery and try to return as a DH later this season. Doesn’t sound like something someone with draft prospects would do

    Yeah if he wants any kind of future in the game he needs to get it done now.

    He can throw a brace on and hit. Seen it before. Can't tear it worse. It's just whether he can do it.

    Your power comes from your legs or lower half. I imagine that it is going to be greatly compromised with this injury if he continues to play through it.

    But again, will he try it? I just can't see it. Not a guy with his future. He'll decide to have surgery and start rehab.

    A guy risking his future professional career to get back on the field for dear Ole Miss sounds like something an OM writer would tell the flock with no factual basis.
