    Curious to see how this shakes out.

    I listened to a webinar with Cubs owner via my school and he talked in decent detail about how they’re responding. Apparently 70% of MLB revenue is gate/concessions/etc, so by playing without fans for a reduced schedule, they’re looking at how much of the remaining 30% they can recover (~15-20%). Given recent comments by Snell and Bryce, I could easily see no resolution coming and the season being lost.

    Boris can be a PITA but he's correct on this one. The owners are doing things to pad their accounts. IE-cutting the size of the draft; cutting down on the number of minor league teams and now looking for ways to reduce the salaries of the players. Some very short sighted things going down here by ownership. These things don't grow the game.

    First round of the draft is tonight. Phillies will only have 4 picks total.

    I guess something did change in the scouting process. They weren't making that pick before.

    Why would you? I spent a little bit of time looking into Mitchell, Cavalli, Soderstrom, and Bailey.

    Then I looked into Hendrick for non-Phillies reasons because someone suggested he was worth a look. Holy hell, his bat is fast.

    Yup. Strong too. I wanted no parts of him though. Especially in this org. 19 year old HS corner OF. Power over hit. Busy swing.

    So hard to get excited or be disappointed in baseball first round picks given how speculative it is, but I am really worried about taking a high school pitcher that had their senior season cancelled. Any other year I'd probably be pretty psyched about drafting a huge power arm guy but he's basically being drafted based on his junior season. Just a little risky if you ask me. Hopefully he has been keeping up on workouts etc.

    High school pitchers are the riskiest demographic, but not pitching as a senior doesn't really impact a guy like Abel. He's been established for two years now. You weren't getting anything out of him blowing away Oregon high school hitters. If anything it's less wear and tear on the arm. Most of the evaluation for high school players comes from the previous summer when they all play against each other.

    From spin rate stars to exit velo kings: TrackMan reveals MLB draft's metric standouts

    Third and fifth round picks. Of course they come with 30% college strikeout rates this year. Swinging for the fences. Literally.

    I'll take Joey Gallo from a 5th round pick. I think Martin is more likely to hit for a better average than Radcliff... but given he chance of MLB picks actually turning into regular players saying neither will ever be a starter in the MLB is more likely.

    A good outcome for Martin is probably a middle of the diamond utility player. K rates are high but at least they are coming from the SEC. Probably not going to hit consistently enough to be a regular but speed and power can often be carrying tools for guys that can stick up the middle.

    Radcliff was an extreme 3 outcome guy in the ACC. I can't imagine he's not pushing 40% K rates in the minors which probably means he's not a big leaguer, especially if he can't stick in the OF, but he should be fun at least. Cozens-esque.

    This is certainly the Trackman Era of baseball.

    Baseball is dead. RIP.

    Manfred is likely going to install a 48 game season after the sides can’t agree to anything and then next year the players will strike.

    No coming back from that one.

    Honestly I've been saying with my friends and whatnot that I think this is going to be the catalyst for the strike

    "Well I mean we already lost half the season, so we're just not going to come back"

    Yea. If there was ever a situation to have the players strike. Force an extremely short season on them, reduce their salary based on that. (I think last was owners offering 81% with a full playoffs). So you're getting slightly less than 1/3 of your salary because of playing 48-51 games and then getting like 20% less of that 1/3 because of the further reduction.

    Players will just strike.

    If they force the 48 game schedule on them they have to get paid 100% of their 48/162 salary.

    Fans were pissed after the 94 strike that didn’t get resolved until just before the 95 season. I agree, there is no coming back. The next strike will make the 94 negotiations look like a walk in the park.
    It is all about greed. The only ones who suffer are the fans. I will not shed one tear for money lost by the MLBPA and the owners.
    They can all f*** themselves as far as I’m concerned

    We live in a world where Gary Bettman exists & somehow Rob Manfred is still the worst major sports commissioner.

    3.) Goodell














    4.) Manfred
