It's just too far out for that kind of thing, sorry.

Any prospect (not named Mondesí) that you grade higher than the overall market from the Royals organization?

When you look at Dan Vogelbach, what do you see? A left-handed Billy Butler? Or a quad-A slugger who eventually goes to Japan?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:35
The latter scenario is probably a little too specific for my taste but I don't think Vogelbach is an everyday big leaguer.

Thoughts on Josh Staumont? Can he stick in the rotation?
Eric A Longenhagen

It's the easiest 101mph fastball I've ever seen, but no. Relief for me.
Albert

Are you a Dom smith fan? What kind of player will he be in the bigs?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:36
I am, think he's an above average everyday 1B.
James

Do you think Lucas Sims can stick as a starter? Maybe a #3 type as his ceiling? Or is he likely to be a late inning reliever.
Eric A Longenhagen

Relief. Fastball plays below its velocity because it doesn't move. Love that breaking ball, though.

Hey Eric, if you were in the Cubs position of having a very small bonus pool in this year's draft, what would you recommend they do with their picks?
Eric A Longenhagen

I thought about this a lot yesterday and can't envision a scenario where they do anything creative or sneaky. They'll probably just take the best signable player on their board at #104..

What is Taylor Trammel doing to shoot up draft boards? What's the source of helium?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:42
No doubt physical tools for CF, two sport athlete (he had 36 TDs last fall) who might take off once he focuses on baseball.
David

Where did all of these SS prospects come from? Is it just me or the number of top SS guys right now very abnormal.
Eric A Longenhagen

I don't think there's a cause for what we're seeing right now, just randomness. But I'm certainly not complaining. Less Pete Kozma types, please.

How can you handle the mediocre beer in Phoenix?

Outside BRI it's a wasteland.

By drinking whiskey.
