Thu, 27 Sep 2012|
The CTL panel debates the implications on MLB Draft position if the Cubs were to lose 100 games this season - 9/26
Can you handicap the draft force who could they -- -- number two that there's a good power Predators are Arkansas as a guy named Brian stand neck okay and I don't realize that guy I think he's the guy the Cubs. Want to. I don't think there's any doubt the Cubs are gonna take a power. Pitcher probably have college pitcher. But they know Bryce Harper available this year how did I guess throughout Dolly it well I -- Mike -- wasn't a big guy going into the draft so they might be able to find somebody that. It -- there's no obvious. It's not a bad year to have the second pick it as opposed to the first. I I. I do think the Cubs are gonna lose a hundred I don't think they're going to be able to split. These eight games -- they have to they go to Arizona and play in the Houston comes here at a Cubs are out of pitching there. You know that they have no starting -- we'll run out there are so. I don't see how the good work the last -- and for their sake I hope Colorado finishes ahead of him because they could make a significant difference in. Whether they get a guy like this -- -- for not. -- baseball drafts -- like the NBA you mentioned about some of bad your two picks second. About 2008 the Bulls get their grows that he get Michael Beasley ouch Hasheem Thabeet number two pick. -- know his work ethic and a baseball draft doesn't get a lot of coverage obviously but there have been some. Great impact players coming out recent years is that changed a little bit as is the scouting better players. More advanced at a younger age. Now it gets more attention but I don't think it's any more important. All the big teams usually the Yankees didn't care about the draft now they all buy -- and that's it there's a little bit it's a little more competitive. Because you don't have teams that just they are who cares about these high school kids that's still where you. Find your steer stars and you know -- some really good example is the twentieth pick. You know it Eli teams that like -- that much now I and now. You don't that's the although the White Sox and the Cubs used to not spend heavily in the draft. That's why they don't have good farm systems you know and you're a year don't they change the rules for what the rules were that you could overspending get more than your share they chose to sit and out and and their pay the price. And help is on the way the Cubs got Albert L -- with the sixth pick in this year's draft they get the Cuban import -- solar. They really play and Kane County next year we'll see what happens with that.
