    *Far Out* Draft Talk

    *This is bored Marlins watching me, lmk what you guys think though* I've been thinking a lot about the future for the Marlins (clearly not much to see right now) and was interested in knowing what a potential top-5 pick next year could get for us. First, we should look at what we targeted last year and how our system looks right now. Of our top 10 prospects, we have 6 Pitchers (4R,2L), and 4 position players. In the top 10 we have 5 projected to be promoted in or by 2019, 1 in 2020, and 4 past that. In the next year or two, we'll see a lot of change here from promotions mainly. Sandy Alacantra/Monte Harrison/Nick Neidert/Jorge Guzman/Isan Diaz/Edward Cabrera are the prospects that'll most likely be promoted "soon". That's our 4 top pitching prospects, after the next 2 (Braxton Garret and Trevor Rogers) we have Jordan Yamato checking in at #16. This'll become a clear need soon but in the first round, especially the top 5, we should draft BPA no matter what. Knowing this and also from our recent draft, we'll be targeting "Up The Middle" players that are athletic. C/P/2B/SS/CF. I feel after our top pick we'll focus heavily on replenishing the pitching depth we need going forward. With the potential top-5 pick though that's not the case, the top talent coming out next year is exactly what we've been targeting. *I take some info from Baseball America that's in a free article* Some key players that can go top-5 we might take -Bobby Witt Jr. SS Oklahoma Commit This excerpt is from Baseball America and gives you a good idea of Bobby "He’s fundamentally sound up the middle, with a quick exchange and the requisite enough arm strength to make the plays in the hole. He’s got a quick right-handed swing with the ability to impact the baseball to all fields. Witt’s speed gives him a fifth tool that has flashed above average or better, producing double-plus home-to-first times in the 4.00-to-4.10 range". From all reports he could go as high as one, he's definitely somebody we WANT and could be a star for whatever team drafts him. -C.J. Abrams SS Blessed Trinity HS, Roswell, Ga. Baseball America excerpt as well "At least a plus-plus runner, Abrams is a lefthanded-hitting shortstop with the defensive skills to stick at the position and fantastic feel for the barrel offensively. His speed allows him to rack up extra bases but he hasn’t shown big-time raw power. Defensively, Abrams has a quick exchange, advanced body control, and above-average range." another top "Up The Middle" prospect that could be what Jeter and the FO like. -Brennan Malone RHP Porter Ridge HS, Indian Trail, N.C. Another excerpt "Malone stood out as an underclassman during the showcase circuit last summer, throwing in the low 90s with good feel for spinning a breaking ball. His fastball has touched as high as 97 mph early this summer, but he also has impressive secondaries in an 83-85 mph fading changeup and mid-70s curveball with 12-to-6 break. Both could become plus offerings down the line." This sounds like a top of the order game breaking pitcher to me. If you take a pitcher high next year it has to be this guy. Overall these are some of the guys I think we'll be targeting and hopefully add one of them to our team. Each has huge potential and could be stars down the road. I plan on adding more players and other draft stuff to this thread and we come closer obviously. Thanks for reading and have any ideas you guys might have!

    That's the only issue I see with wanting it out, it's literally massive and not that bad that I feel we need to change it out. If you want to change it as some sort of passing of the old ownership to the new one I'd understand though. There's a bunch of county stuff as well they'd have to clear before they could anyways so that's why I think it stays.

    Should I create like a "Winter Meetings Trade Talk" (due to that time being the most likely people get dealt) thread and talk about a couple guys or just one for each possible trade candidate? i wouldnt wanna clutter the front page with just a bunch of similar type threads

    I feel if you could land 2 top 50 prospects then you consider it, paying him isn't what we want in all honesty. Keeping the payroll low till we are actually near contending should be the plan. If we got offered the Robles Kieboom (younger brother) package I feel we should've taken it, hell I would've thrown in Kyle (when he was on fire) for another prospect to even it out.
