Ya'll see Appel's start got pushed back because of tendinitis in his thumb? this guy.

All signs are pointing to us taking Aiken at this point. I have a really hard time passing on Rodon. I still really like him.

One setback after another with this guy.

On a better note just got my free tickets to next Thursdays game against the D-Backs (I know they suck) in the Crawford Boxes for signing the CSNH petition Never turn down free tickets even if it is against another bad team like the D-Backs.

If we take a pitcher I want rod on or nola. I still prefer Jackson but he could bust as well.

it is to the point where it is not a big deal.


Anytime a 21 y/o loses 1-1.5 years of time where he potentially could have been contributing is a big deal.

Also, to whomever said that Aiken has command issues, that is complete mularky. Every scouting report you read on him raves about the command of all of his pitches.

Jackson being moved from catcher to outfield is about as overblown as Correa being moved to 3b. If it has to happen, it'll be towards the middle of his career.


I won't be upset with any of: Aiken, Rodon, or Jackson.

Im still for Rodon.

I don't understand the love for Aiken.
Why draft someone that you "hope" will be remotely good as Rodon is now.

I understand them trying to pull a 2012 and get good bargain, but it wont work again. That year was the first of its kind and no one had any idea how the slot money would work other than Luhnow.

Also the fact the Marlins pick behind us and in front of us will screw any idea for lightning to strike again. The Indians and the Blue Jays both have two pick before our comp. The Indians also have a pick before our (41) pick.

If the Astros try to get cute it will probably fail. They need to just go ahead and draft the best player available in Rodon.

For the record I find that statement completely hard to believe. You telling me Luhnow is the only person in the MLB that could read?

No, just that the Astros were the first to exploit it

Top college arm Carlos Rodon is said to be asking for a bonus of over $6MM, reports Scout.com’s Kiley McDaniel (via Twitter). In McDaniel’s view, that makes Brady Aiken a strong favorite to go first overall to the Astros. The top overall slot comes with an approximately $7.9MM allotment, with the second choice landing at just over $6.8MM.

True, but we didn't have 3 picks in the top 50 last year like we do this year.

I think it's Aiken

True but they also have more money than last year cause of the comp pick
