So I’m saying they try to get it right away if they can. Just found that out from my sources…which was the player :)

Thanks for the info. I wonder if Callis, Law or any of those folks know.

I agree now on Thomas….For some reason, I was thinking he was a sophomore with potential…not sure why…lol

Most players will do that from what I’ve heard, just because you don’t want to cut off a team that already liked you enough to draft you.
Brandon Thomas I could go either way on. I wouldn’t take him in the 4th round again. He is a good hitter, but he is also already 22 years old and doesn’t hit for any power. He’s limited to center field because of that, though he isn’t the best defensive center fielder out there, average at best.

Tim/John…what is the procedure for a potential draftee to allow a team that already drafted them, to redraft them?
Is there a certain form? Is there a deadline? Is it something that can be faxed/ emailed to the team/league office at ‘a moment’s notice?’

Thx

Foo

Kubitza sounds like Tommy John surgery in waiting, but I think in the 4th or 5th round he could be worth the risk. His problems sound like the kind the Pirates are good at fixing.

Hursh would be great if he’s still there at 51. I don’t think he will be.

No thanks on Dace Kime and his mother. I don’t see enough upside for him in the 3rd round.

Emmanuel could be ok in the 3rd, but again not sure he’ll last that long.

Levson would be interesting in the 15-20 range or as a guy who would sign way under slot in the 7th-10th round.
