    Given how balls are currently flying out of the park, yeah I would give him 15 homer power. I think smoot is probably on point. 10-15 on the low end and 25 on the upper end. I'm still a little skeptical of his offensive ceiling, but defensively he sounds like he is otherwordly. I've only seen him once and he didn't get many tough chances.

    I think so too. About as long as we could have possibly hoped for at the outset of the rebuild. I'm really hoping that our draft next year turns out well. We should be able to add some impact talent with two first rounders. We need to continue to draft well to mitigate our international penalties so we can keep the waves of talent flowing in.

    That’s my largest complaint with Anthopoulos so far, by far. Not signing Stewart—which, at best, seems like a failure of due-diligence on the medical side; and, at worst, seems like a failure of negotiating strategy—really hurts, given the thinning of depth at the lower levels of the system.

    agreed, wonder what they don't love about touki while still liking gohara a good bit.

    is it possible AA didn't think much of this draft class (not said to be very deep) and figured if he could get stewart on the cheap, fine, but otherwise take a pick for next year? idk, maybe GMs don't think/act like that. but maybe.

    there have been blunders, some big, but the rebuild has gone really well so far. of course some of that is due to guys who were already in the system at the time, but the system is still completely stacked. that's a great thing.

    Drafting well will be key. Or perhaps trading players at the appropriate time for prospects.

    I think the system below AA is probably pretty average or below.

    The rosters that ended the year in Rome and lower are absolutely brutal. Likely a combination of drafting college heavy and the international sanctions, but it's really bad.

    There are some arms. But looking pretty depleted. Of course there aren't four Braves blogs cataloging the lower minors in detail this year, so most of the GCL and Danville guys are just names on a stat line to me.

    On the other hand, the odds of drafting an impact player on the 1st round next year are pretty damn good.

    Braves overslot 4th rounder from Stanford Tristan Beck came out looking the best he has in years, 93-96, flashing a 55 or 60 breaker. More 90-93 in the second inning, still some reliever risk, but delivery/arm looked more fluid than recent past.

    I've heard a ton of good things about this kid. I forget if it was Law or one of the guys over at Fangraphs/Baseball America, but one of them said that he played like a 1st rounder in his short time with us. Maybe he'll be a diamond in the rough and will turn into something useful.

    A 6-foot-5 third baseman, he played three levels after being drafted and hit .352 overall, and an impressive .325 at High A Florida. Total of 69 hits in 52 games, including seven triples! OBP of .429, OPS of .924.

    Had read somewhere that there's serious concern he'll have to move off of 3B. Could be a potential Freddie replacement eventually.
    The FO that needlessly promoted him early knew what they were doing and are paid to do this. We aren't, so we can't know more than them. Correction....they used to be paid to do this..

    I also don't see the reasoning behind signing DK over CK, and I'm going to assume the Braves can only afford one of them. Like Bumgarner, DK would be an improvement in the rotation, but it seems like CK would be a bigger improvement in the BP.

    Halo: Kevin Maitan, destined for 1B? and if so, is his bat enough for that position?
