We talked a bit about Correra during the podcasts, but here is a little snippet I missed from Perfect Game a couple of weeks ago.

Carlos Correa also continues to impress. In a game against Berrios he fouled off those 96-97 fastballs prior to drawing a walk while showing his impressive bat speed and ability to handle superior velocity. Correa continues to be a target for the first three to five overall picks as an elite athlete with the ability to play a premium position.


I've heard a recent rumor that the KC Royals are hot and heavy on this young guy... should be really interesting.

Adopt-a-players:

Juan Diaz (YET ANOTHER switch hitting middle infielder) (traded)

Seon Gi Kim (Still waiting for him to come around... )

Brandon Haveman (Loveable depth) (released)

Tyler Blandford (What are the possibilities of a refund at this point?)


So... I got this site where I write at... SodoMojo. If you care to visit.

If we do draft him, I immediately call dibs on him for my next adopt-a-player and bestow upon him the nickname "Chick". Next step is to pick out some suitable jazz-fusion walk up music. :)

Adopt-a-Players:
Forrest Snow - Started the year injured, then split the year between AA and AAA. At 27, his career may be winding down.
2016 AA/AAA: 3-4, 2.83 ERA, 61 K, 15 BB, 1.074 WHIP, 54 IP

Career:  33-47,  4.08 ERA, 628 K,  241 BB, 1.257 WHIP,  682 IP

Gone But Not Forgotten (former adopt-a-players):

Alex Jackson - Traded to Atlanta after underwhelming in three years of pro ball.
Eric Thames - Battled injury and had a down year in Korea, only hitting .317/.425/.676/1.101 over 121 games.
Matt Mangini - Out of baseball. Now sells cigars and offers baseball training/evaluation services.
Mike Morse - Released by the Pirates in April. Looks like the end of a 12-year career for the former M's prospect.
Jamal Strong - Let go after 2005. Played in the Yankees, Cubs and Braves systems. Now a national scout for the Cards.
