    Skubal is so goddamn good. Can’t wait to see what terrible things befall him.

    And we should trade Jiminez before he can throw another pitch.

    Jung and Susac are the last of the consensus college bats and both make some sense given where Detroit is in its rebuild. I get the impression that the Tigers aren't thrilled with what is likely to be available at the pick: There isn't a college pitcher worth full slot here -- I don't think they want to take another high school pitcher after taking one with their first pick last year -- and the position players expected to be on the board here don't have a ton of ceiling. Local high school RHP Brock Porter is heavily tied to Detroit as well and GM Al Avila was at the recent workout for Alabama LHP Connor Prielipp as the Tigers continue to canvass options.

    Hadn't looked at a single MLB draft story before this and the Keith Law mock around the same day. Weird after the last 5 years to not be invested in anyone at this point, let alone not know who anyone is.

    Detroit, Toledo and Erie gave up a combined 30 runs tonight and two of those teams were the road team so opposition only hit in 8 innings.

    At least WM only gave up 2 runs, but still lost 2-1 and Baddoo went 0-3 with 2 k in his first game at WM

    He appears to be mentally gone too, has no emotion or care in his demeanor, probably there to collect a paycheck

    I was gonna give him the benefit of the doubt and say he was tired at the beginning of the year, but that doesn’t appear to be the case.

    Good morning Mr. smeegsgreen . How many strikeouts for Baez today? It’s an early 11:30am start, so hopefully he’s not tired.

    It sounds like Rocker’s A ball debut was a success last night. We should just draft him at 12.

    it was independent ball. It’s probably worse competition than the SEC.

    The good one has been tired and hasn’t played recently. This might be his first game back.

    the Spartan dawgs will never give up the “tired” posts. That was probably one of the worst takes ever on this thread. Especially since Quintana is like 24 now, still in A ball, and still sucks ass

    Judging by Nick’s current stats, he’s still tired. .730 OPS in A+ ball
