    After a calendar year, two of those late overslot picks, Stephan and Whitlock, have performed and progressed faster than Peterson. And Schmidt is set to return pretty shortly.
    You are skipping the part where we gave Matt Sauer 1.25m+ over slot. I would have rather got a slot pick there if need be and signed Peterson.

    Sauer is 18. Gotta wait on someone like that. The little I read on him at the draft last year was very encouraging.

    admittedly not a draftnik. Which player will most you be upset that was available and the Yankees didn't take at #23?

    Re: 2018 MLB Draft

    Callis and Mayo have submitted their final mocks.

    Callis has the Yankees with Lavigne.

    Mayo has them taking Xavier Edwards. Sickels:

    https://www.minorleagueball.com/2018...-creek-florida

    Attending North Broward Prep, he is a plus-makeup, high-intelligence player committed to Vanderbilt and will probably have to go on day one of the draft to pass up college.

    He has the tools to do so, beginning with blazing speed, 70-grade at least with some 80-grades. This isn’t just pure speed: he knows how to use properly and could be a truly devastating baserunner, an ideal leadoff hitter if he gets on base enough.

    A switch-hitter, Edwards shows a consistent contact-oriented swing and good feel for the strike zone. While he doesn’t have the frame of a power hitter at 5-10, 155, he has some wiry strength and should hit a reasonable number of doubles and triples. The only real lack in Edwards’ offensive game is home run projection.

    Edwards shines on defense. Although his arm is just average in terms of strength, it is accurate and he has a quick release. His range is excellent at shortstop and his instincts should allow him to remain there. I think there’s every reason to be confident in his glove
    If he were three inches taller and had a larger frame, he’d be a top ten pick.
    I suspect if it is in fact Edwards a lot of posters here will be angry.

    this.

    just once, can they please draft somebody who's universally regarded as a good pick for the spot they are drafting.

    If you just want it once, today is your lucky day because it happened just two drafts ago!

    I gave up trying to guess what the Yankees are going to do especially at the #23 pick. Too much crap can happen before they pick as players rise and fall before #23.

    Re: 2018 MLB Draft

    Would be happy with X Edwards, as well as Jordyn Adams, Rocker, Casas, or essentially anyone else we've heard as consensus 1st round talent

    But.......at the end of the day, I am just a moron in front of a computer screen, while Cashman and co. are the ones who got Judge at pick #32

    Great post. Only thing I'd add is that you aren't a moron. Anyone who is self-aware, especially a crapshoot like the MLB draft, isn't a moron.

    Much appreciated. We would all do well to remember just how unscientific this whole process is even for front offices. I distinctly remember watching us pick Kaprielian in '15, and thinking, "well, that was underwhelming-- a guy with good command, 4 pitches, and middling stuff." Injuries notwithstanding, he added 3 mph out of nowhere, and was on track to be one of the very best pitching prospects in baseball before we used him to acquire Gray. Ya never know.

    Over draft for first but may not be there in second. It's who you feel will be of value.
    Other then size, i don't see Brackman at all. I want a pitcher who can be dominant. It's always a risk, but when right he can take a game over. Unlike other big men, Hjelle is known for his control. Should his size lend him to gain more Velo, watch out! It's all about projection to me and not a review of how well a said player performed in the past season. 6-11 and sporting a Knuckle Curve sounds good to me..JMO

    You know, when you put it that way, he's sort of the pitching version of Judge......massive physicality, large perceived flaw, tremendous upside?

    From Sickels' write-up, Edwards sounds very intriguing. I only hate drafting position prospects that have a questionable bat. It seems that those guys rarely work out. That's why I hated the Holder pick. If power projection is the only knock on Edwards, I'm fine with it. Mookie didn't exactly project to hit for much power, and look at him now.

    That's my take on it. He has fallen through the season but I like the possible upside..JMO
