LOL with Watson being the #1 top prospect so soon.   

 

At least it actually MEANS something now if our draft pick gets placed at the top of our list.

I remember the days when our first rounder every year immediately became our top prospect ...

😆That’s true.  We have 3-4 guys that could make the #1 prospect on nearly  any team.  No knock on Watson, he’s just not on a B. Harper level to get that ranking yet straight out of HS.

Watson ranks 28th overall on MLB top prospects. 

I always find this stupid. Yeah he’s talented but he’s also very far away and unproven at any level.  I know prospects are all about potential but I never like when a kid out of high school leaps up the list that quick.

I think draft picks shouldn't have a ranking until they've played at least a third of a season's worth of games. After 6-8 weeks you should be able to see how good he is.

 

I feel the same for College Football rankings. Don't start to do em til Week 6. Lol.

And he fell in the draft at 16 just a month ago.  Not complaining, but they are really hyping him up.

His money says otherwise!

Harper got more than 3x as much for a signing bonus (which effectively made MLB set the cap).

Idc. It's not about the quantity of the money. It's the quality of the money. Watson's money is badass.

Eury Perez is going to be a top 10 prospect in baseball before he’s called up. I hope we don’t move him. What he’s doing at 18 is phenom-esque.

And he's not done growing or filling out. His fastball is touching upper 90s already, imagine just a little more muscle behind that pitch ...

A slow and controlled weight increase over a couple years ... might be amazing.

I disagree. Body, mechanics, swing etc are  pretty gradeable. Fish got away with one by getting him imo
