Post-draft, do you (or scouts) ever allow for SSS performance to alter your thoughts on a player pre-draft? For example, Bo Bichette tore the cover off the ball over 22 games w/ 15 XBH. Would anyone value him differently now compared to early June?

Some probably would but not me. Unless there's a change to something mechanical, SSS numbers are just that.

Was Rutherford worth mortgaging NYY's class? Are there any other prospects from that class?
Eric A Longenhagen

Where they got Rutherford made it worth it, I think. I like Nolan Martinez.

How does one get a baseball front office job?

There's no clear path but: Learn to code, come from a financial situation that allows your work to freely be taken advantage of.

Drafted players often get as many or more at bats in pro ball than they do in college/high school in the year they get drafted. Why is one considered small sample size, but the other not (no sarcasm, serious question)? Thanks
