MLB had Royce Lewis #3 overall. Your writeup didn't sound that high on him. Is he moving up boards?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:57
I love Lewis but have college pitching ahead of him right now.

Best college hitter after Kendall in the draft?
Eric A Longenhagen
2:00
Schwarz, Harrison, Hiura, Skoug? One of those guys? Significant drop after Kendall for me.

Who do you prefer, B.Enlow or Shane Baz?
Eric A Longenhagen
2:00
I like Enlow's phys projection, Baz's stuff.
Kingpin

DeJong for the Cards is likely not a SS long-term, right? But is his bat and approach good enough to make him at least a big league regular at 3B?
Eric A Longenhagen
2:01
Not a SS for me but neither were Aledmys Diaz and Jed Gyorko.
2:02
A big leaguer of some kind, probably a 40 or 45 FV right now.
Alex
2:02
Other than the Hector Olivera trade, what has been Coppy's worst move so far? Is the Simmons trade looking pretty bad? Ellis already traded away, Newcomb's stock is falling, and Aybar was everything we thought he wouldn't be.

Hiring Kiley McDaniel.
JK, someone needs to bring everyone coffee.

What are the best 3 minor league parks in the country?
Eric A Longenhagen
2:03
I haven't been to all of them but here are my top 3:
2:04
1. Reading
2. Lake Elsinore (extra points for having the best tacos I've ever had a short drive from the park)
3. Lehigh Valley
2:05
1,230: Trenton
Ben
2:05
Best prospect, or prospect you were extremely high on that didn't make, excluding major injuries.

Dom Brown
Campy

Future Position for Barreto, SS, 2B, CF?
Eric A Longenhagen
2:05
CF for me
LudeBurger

So Kilome < Sixto?
Eric A Longenhagen
2:06
I prefer Kilome due to the physical projection but don't think anyone is crazy for liking Sixto more. Better athlete, pitch projection arguably better due to developmental background.

what's up with dakota mekkes?
Eric A Longenhagen
2:06
Jordan Walden style delivery, deception, extension, all sorts of fin things going on there.

If the Phillies could redo the 2016 draft right now, would they still take Moniak with the first pick, or has someone else already passed him as the clear number one?
Eric A Longenhagen
2:07
Still Moniak with the hope that Rutherford and Groome fall far enough that Wentz gets to your next pick with Gowdy as a BATNA
BJ
2:07
How about Jharel Cotton? Does he rank over Gsellman, Stewart, Weaver, based on stuff and proximity? Seems like he has a rotation spot in 2017.
Eric A Longenhagen
2:08
I'd go Gsellman, Cotton, Weaver (you can pick between Cotton or Weaver I think) then Stew. Love Cotton's change and cutter
dago

Any intriguing Royals' prospect, whether included in the report or outside the 40FV, that caught your attention based on personal write-ups or otherwise?
Eric A Longenhagen
2:09
Rudy Martin wasn't on the list but is a personal favorite of mine. Little speedster who plays hard.
Rich
2:09
Please can you give me Brinson's offensive profile
Eric A Longenhagen
2:10
20/20 guy with good D in CF and lots of K's
Trevor

Do you think Matt Thaiss has the ability to be a poor man's Kyle Schwarber for the Halos?
Eric A Longenhagen
2:10
Gut: I think Thaiss will put up good numbers at Hi-A and be traded. Not close to Schwarber who is a freak.
Daniel
2:10
Are fan allowed to go to Instructional League games? How about the Gulf Coast League? How do we get in?
Eric A Longenhagen
2:11
Yes. Just show up.
