    Thinking he?ll go 50-55. Hard to imagine he would come back even at 60.

    He wouldn't be ready for next season unless he just super humans it. It's usually minimum a year, up to 2 years. He'd be smart to take anything 7 figures imo.

    It's not about what number they are drafted at btw. It's about the money offered.

    Rocker went third but also signed 2 million under slot. Teams can manipulate that slot a lot to sign guys.

    We knew that was happening... just hang on to the rest. Lose one and that's still good.

    Little doubt he was going early. We just seem to fight this every single year all the way down the line.

    If you're recruiting properly, it SHOULD happen every year. Every single year. Just like vandy, lsu. They will lose plenty. Sign the best and go from there.

    Not happening now. Taken at 15.

    There's word that the Braves are interested in LoTan 2nd or 3rd round. I would imagine they go pitcher at 20 and try and find an available catcher 2nd round now that Langeliers is gone.

    Wouldn't be shocked to see the Braves take a college senior with their 1st round compensatory pick or someone out of high school they want to low ball and be ok not signing because they'll end up with a compensatory pick again next year.

    I assumed with Horton and Gabe Hughes off the board, he was thinking the Braves at 20.

    Yes it is about where they are picked. After 60 lots of your extra slot value and draft capital is tied into your first 2 picks unless you just blow it. A lot of younger position guys going which means that alot of slot money is going away. You hit in the 60s most guys aren’t getting a lot of slot money.

    Homedawg says Top Ten rounds and he is pretty on point- but Top 5 rounds fo sho. Scouts lose jobs over picks not signing in the top 5 rounds now. Dont expect anybody in the top 5 rounds to pass up the money and go to college with the way things are now

    Also, if you need 2 years to start CTing again then your career is probably over. UCL injuries that is.

    The reason I say ten is bc if a team goes and picks 3 college srs in rounds 3-5 they've saved a lot of money. Then pick a flyer in round 8 or 9 they can pay him lots. But your point is spot on.
