re: Anyone tried T-Mobile Home Internet in the New Orleans area? - JustinTI
I have it and am located in the lakefront area. They were doing work on my street and cut the cable seemingly every other day...working from home full time, that was not acceptable. I tried out T-mobile home internet late last year and have been impressed. For $50 a month all in (some of whic...

[quote]Prospectslive.com[/quote] Good link, hadn't seen that one yet. It really highlights how we went from questionable pitching depth, to ridiculous depth this offseason. 5 of the top 100 prospects are LSU pitchers (Skenes, Little, Taylor, Floyd, Money). I doubt they are all top 100 picks, b...

[quote]The pick is a college 4th year, so not much leverage.[/quote] The 4 Year on MLB just means 4 year university. He is listed there as a junior, but his school has him listed as a 2023 Sophomore (with the covid year). So he has 2 years of leverage remaining...better for getting Noot to camp...

[quote]Skenes is ranked as the 2nd best prospect for the 2023 MLB draft (according to Baseball America).[/quote] Could be an oversight on his part, but Skenes is not listed at all in Kiley McDaniel's top 50 prospects for the 2023 draft or what looks to be about 100 other players of note (Grant Ta...

[quote]Need some numbers on those signings to crunch some numbers. [/quote] This. The third round number will be big as that is their best shot to save. The MLB Draft Tracker seems to get the numbers the quickest. https://www.mlb.com/draft/tracker/2022/all/team/brewers On the other hand, I'...

[quote]Misiorowski doing the lords work Signed for $2.35 million (slot $1,131,500). $1.2 ish above slot [/quote] Huge! That eats up all of their savings and then some (~$400k over slot based on the signed picks). Wouldn't have guess Misiorowski would get that much but appreciate his work ...

[quote]There is almost never a player in the draft worth slot at 1/1. [/quote] I'm waiting for a team with the first pick to pick a borderline 2nd/3rd round guy 1/1 for $1M and then use their massive pool to pick guys in the $1M to $2M range with most of the rest of their picks. Seems like the...

[quote]Which is why any player taking less than slot money with leverage baffles me.[/quote] Players mostly care about getting what they think they are worth. If your rankings and feedback indicate you're a 5th to 7th round talent and you set your number at $400k, it doesn't matter much what rou...

re: LSU Baseball 2022 (and beyond) Recruiting Thread (OLD THREAD, PLEASE STICKY NEW ONE) - JustinTI
Noot signing was always a possibility - and a much more likely one after they saved $600k on their first pick. Will be tough to swallow if the number is under $1.5M, but I think it will end up somewhere between 1.5M and 2M. Still, I was hoping to get one of Shores/Kennedy/Noot and we did. There...

re: LSU Baseball 2022 (and beyond) Recruiting Thread (OLD THREAD, PLEASE STICKY NEW ONE) - JustinTI
That guy could be full of it about Noot signing (the timing does seem odd), but it is becoming a more likely result. The Brewers saved $600k on their first pick alone and look to be able to save on most - if not every single one - of their remaining top 10 round picks. Not much for them to spend o...

re: LSU Baseball 2022 (and beyond) Recruiting Thread (OLD THREAD, PLEASE STICKY NEW ONE) - JustinTI
Interesting tidbit from Gervase's interview on Mahtook's show. Asked for a pitcher to keep an eye on for next year, he singled out Cale Lansville. While not as highly rated as Noot or Shores, he was our highest rated recruit from last year's class. Gervase said he had lingering injuries pretty mu...

[quote]but I don't know that they have any other serious overslot signs past round 10[/quote] To satisfy my own curiosity, I looked at the Brewer's 11+ round guys on prospects live, since they rank the most people (600). The draftees in rounds 11-15 and 20 are not ranked. Lege (round 16) is r...

[quote]All of that is pretty accurate, but they won't be saving all of that for Noot. All of your numbers would suggest that they would be concentrating all their saving on just Noot. They will have other players some of that money will need to get spent hopefully.[/quote] Maybe, but I don't know...

[quote]Hunt broke down the Brewers slot earlier...thinks at most they could offer $600K[/quote] Hunt is the best in the local media on baseball analysis, but I think he is low here if the Brewers really want Noot. The "slot value" is $125k. If they go over their pool up to 5% (which the Brewe...

re: Official MLB Draft Thread OVER (Neal to LSU!) - JustinTI
[quote]Better than 2014?[/quote] Yes - at least per the mlb.com draft rankings. 2014 had 1 top 100 recruit (Marshall) and 5 total top 200 (Marshall, Godfrey, Lange, Deichmann, and Papierski). Assuming we keep Noot, 2022 has 3 top 100 recruits (Guidry, Neal, and Noot) and 6 top 200 (those 3...

[quote]I looked at last year's draft and only 1 player drafted after round 12 got a signing bonus of $500k or more.[/quote] True, it would definitely be out of the ordinary. But, I think the Brewer's available pool will be more telling than the round. If I had to guess, I'd say it's more likely...

re: Official MLB Draft Thread OVER (Neal to LSU!) - JustinTI
[quote]The kid they took in the third round, even though he's a high schooler, is almost assuredly an underslot guy. The catcher from Penn State, even though he's a junior, is not worth $450K. He's probably closer to $300k. They're going to save money in some spots. We just need the big guys t...

Updated my table of player rankings with the pre-draft updates. No guarantees, but I think I got everyone. Ordered primarily by mlb.com rankings, as I have typically found those to be most representative of actual draft location. If anyone has a list of guys in the BA 500, I'll incorporate/update...

Article on Misiorowski. Going to be tough to keep him following his combine performance despite reports that he has a strong commitment. https://www.joplinglobe.com/sports/local_sports/mlb-coms-jim-callis-chimes-in-on-jacob-misiorowskis-potential/article_5c684c78-0230-11ed-8c76-2f3261cb159f.html...
