    I'd argue that the bolded pitchers are right where they ought to be in terms of their overall development.
    There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." -- Isaac Asimov

    I wouldn't fight you hard at all on Mahle, and I've never been high on Romano, and obviously that hasn't changed. Then we have Garrett, who is absolutely killing it, but from the pen. At some point, we have to develop an above average STARTER. Thats my point, I listed 7 guys and at this stage, they all have tons of work to do to get to even average

    I am sorry if someone asked earlier (not wading through 50+ pages) but is there a red flag or specific reason Rocker has fallen out of first round in comparison to EARLY projections?

    My guess is when a player falls this far, it is signability issue. Teams do not want to fail to sign a high pick and lose that bonus pool money.

    Kentucky had the most draftees in the country this year (13) and the most taken over the last two seasons (21)

    If you had the opportunity to get these poor souls out of Kentucky, wouldn't you?

    How are they doing in the CWS this year? I don't remember them making noise last year.
