    Starts tonight.
    Players will be selected.
    Some will succeed.
    The ones the SOX take will be doomed immediately.

    25-man roster has only one position player drafted by the Sox.

    They might as well draft only pitchers with the first 20 picks or so.

    Also, daughters of staff members.

    #26 pick = Zack Burdi, Closer, Louisville. Hits triple digits, say he could be up this yr if we're contending.

    Keep selecting players that only play every 5th day. Don't worry about developing everyday players.

    No sense drafting them when you know you can't develop them.

    Hansen is a raw talent high ceiling pick. Many thought coming into the year he'd be a high pick- he didn't live up to his potential. But the Sox rightfully so, since the only thing this organization can do right is develop pitching, believe they can unlock the potential.

    I read that they think he won't sign though cause he can go back and get his pitch back and become a top 10 pick. I don't really know how that works though.

    Source confirms @RobertMurrayBBE report: White Sox in agreement with No. 10 overall pick Zack Collins for slot value ($3.3806M).

    #86 Alex Call OF Ball State
    #116 Jameson Fisher 1B/OF/DH SE Louisiana

    Call appears to be a defensive minded guy who has plate discipline so the hope is he develops into a OBP guy with the bat. An under slot pick.

    Fisher is a top 50 talent, where Call is going to be under slotted, the Sox should be going over as Fisher dropped because a lot of teams are going to be low on pool money.

    Rumor is Sox will offer Burdi under slot with the promise he gets a call up to the pen later this year

    Scanned through some of their HS and college stats. It seems like half of these guys have sub-.300 batting averages of >4.00 ERAs.

    A lot of the guys with the most impressive numbers are unlikely to sign.

    Also drafting players that show baseball skill over raw tools?

    OBP in isolation is a decent, easy way to compare MLB hitters, but I worry about a young prospect with a .400 OBP and only a .250 batting average. He's pretty much entirely reliant on opposing pitchers with terrible control, which won't translate as he advances through the system.

    Sure but I'd prefer that to a guy with a .275 AVG and a .320 OBP at least it shows some level of plate discipline and hitting eye.

    A serious prospect should have a demonstrated ability to make contact against shitty pitching. Batting .250 at such a low level shows a lack of hand-eye coordination and/or bat speed which will only get increasingly exposed as he advances through the system.

    A guy with an AVG-dependent OBP and 100+ Ks per season can make it if he has other tools.

    Watching the College World Series final round tonight. Saw their 10th rounder, Zach Remillard, strike out.

    Guess he'll fit right in.

    Zack Collins 3-4 with a 3-run HR in his first game at Winston-Salem.

    Saw Burdi pitch 2 innings tonight. Fucker throws hard, but the better hitters make very hard contact. Also, his motion is atrocious. He starts with his back to the plate and takes like 3 tiny steps before every pitch.

    Sounds like a bit more of a project than I had thought based on this and other early reports. No point in rushing him given the Sox blow ass for the foreseeable future.
