  1. so they didn’t need money from Joe to sign Keller. That is good sign. Glad he is signed and can start playing. Feel a little sorry for his high school team but I’m sure they are happy to have played with someone like Keller.

  2. This could be a nice draft, I was okay with Tucker because he will no doubt stick and ss, Joe could be a solid OF nothing amazing but could be one of those role players down the road that is important and both the prep arms could be good prospects, i mean look what our track record says with prep arms so far.

    • I think there is doubt that he won’t stick at SS. He is 17. But I think it is pretty certain he will at least be a 3B,SS, or 2B…so that is good.

      • Two reasons theye selected him one to save money . two because he has the ability to stay at short. Temas valued him higher because of this. Unlike jacob gatewood and michael chavis

        • He no doubt has the ability to stick at SS. There are just so many that don’t. I am rooting for him to of course.

  3. Great signing – first step to making this draft a success, at least in terms of getting the right players signed and into the system – Keller was one of the most important along with Tucker and Supak.
