    No plagiarism. He's not trying to pass it off as his own. Everyone knows it's from BA.

    Eierman is still interesting. Considering his 3 for 30 start his overall numbers are are similar to last year. Slight drop in BB rate, but lowered the K-rate too. Now slashing .302/.390/.350 (.313/.410/.650 ish last year) but the HR's have dropped from 23 to 9. He's projected anywhere from end of the 1st round to the 3rd round.

    If we on pass on Swaggerty to take another fucking catcher - I'm going to be upset. You hear that Atkins. Upset.

    Fine. Let's just revise it to "if we take another catcher early in the draft - I'm going to be upset"

    Kiley McD.

    1:05 Ed: You said a couple of weeks back that Travis Swaggerty has maturity issues? I understand you don’t want to talk about them but are they something to be seriously concerned about?

    1:06 Kiley McDaniel: Dont think it’s a long term concern but it seems to be making people hesitate when their jobs and millions are on the line. His swing getting out of whack seems like a bigger deal, to be honest.

    I'm not going to pretend like I know much about the prospects in the draft, but from what I've read and watched I'm really leaning towards Connor Scott. Anyone else a fan of his?

    He seems to have a high ceiling and was linked to the Jayís pick on several occasions. Itís really tough to project a prep bat, and even harder to project a prep arm.
    You can evaluate the tools and look at their highschool success, but many of them never translate to the professional level.

    How an organization develops them for 3-5 years prior to their first stint at the majors makes just as much difference as the raw tools when drafted.

    And health generally is a hard thing to predict, even if they donít show red flags in highschool. Scott missed some time from appendectomy and has a bit less data in an already scarce sample size of prep players.

    I think Connor Scott has a fairly high ceiling. A lefty bat that potentially sticks at center field, with double plus speed and plus arm. Scouting reports indicate he has recently added power to his already good hit tool.

    He draws comparisons to Kyle Tucker due to going to the same school and projected to having similar tools. Itís basically a high risk high reward pick.

    Personally, if one of the college bats drop to 12 I would rather take my chances there. Jonathan India or Travis Swaggerty shows a lot of upside and thereís college numbers to look at that projects well.

    Donít get your hopes up though, the Jays have drafted a first round pitcher eight years in a row and heavily leaned towards college players the last 2 years. They also have weak pitching in the farm system.

    Although murmurs say they are leaning towards a prep player it could be a smokescreen.

    and Ole Miss lefty Ryan Rolison was under consideration here until he gave up 11 runs at South Carolina two weeks ago.
    Lol seriously? Teams make decisions based on a single bad start?
