    Effectively using twitter by rising young stars doesn't make baseball better, it's the fact that they are huge fans of the game also, just like we all are. That's what makes it great.

    Also, Corey Dickerson is known for swinging as hard as possible to try to murder the baseball, regardless of the count. If Bo is a fan of that approach, which it would appear he most certainly is, that's just another reason to love the guy.

    Having seen a lot of Bichette online and in person, I think he has the fast-twitch skills to cover a lot of ground at short, but he doesn't have the arm strength to make that throw from the hole.

    Jays took a bunch of low leverage college seniors with most of their 4th through 10th round picks, and used all their savings to go all in on Tellez. They also scooped Danny Jansen for $100K from the baseball backwater of Wisconsin (his stock had fallen due to injury, too) in that draft. Of course, they failed to sign Bickford, and they released Hollon this spring after a pair of drug suspensions, so it wasn't all gravy.

    Look back at the draft where they had 5 1st rounders(1st round plus sandwhich picks)and only came away with Brett Cecil and Arencibia.

    The other guys were Justin Jackson, Kevin Ahrens, and Trystan Magnussen.

    If they sign Bickford, they don't have the money for Tellez. He was an insurance policy of sorts, a plan B to throw money at if necessary. Thankfully it worked out.

    Justin Jackson was the 1st pick, right, out of Florida? Man, so many were high on him, and he was an absolute dud... converted to a pitcher even.

    Ahrens was the 1st pick. Rumour was they wanted Mesoraco but he was sniped. If they had landed Mesoraco, they probably wouldn't have drafted JPA with their next pick. Likely would have have gone Mesoraco/Ahrens instead of Ahrens/JPA.

    Woodman isn't a prospect until his K rate goes down, and he's already 22. Not a fan, but I guess he has time to improve.

    Bichette and Vladdy are the future, my friends.

    Man that 2007 draft was so awful, the only players who were able to sustain big league careers were Brett Cecil and Marc Rzepczynski.

    Thomas isn't really a prospect though.

    I worry that at least one of them get dealt. Hopefully not though. It would be nice to actually eat some food from your own garden for a change.
