Do you think Austin Beck has a decent chance of working his way up to about the #2 overall spot?

Doubt it. Very little track record against elite peers. Those top few picks need to be locks.

Some theorized that Jesse Winker's lack of power last season was due to his wrist injury. But through 52 ABs, he has four extra base hits, all doubles. Should I hold out any hope that he'll hit for some semblance of power or should I just understand that this is who he is?
Eric A Longenhagen

Probably the latter.

Has Royce Lewis played like the third best player in the draft or has he faded? Is he still a SS?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:04
Hasn't been great but is a 70 runner with feel to hit and plus bat speed so he's going to be drafted really high even if he's not raking this spring. Not a SS for me, I prefer him in CF.

Tiquan Forbes, Marcus Wilson, & Justin Williams are off to hot starts. Which of them do you like the best going forward?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:05
Wilson. He's the best athlete and I think some of his early career struggles were vision related and have been corrected? That might be apocryphal but I know I've seen him with rec specs at various times and not at others.

Where is your favorite Wendy's Restaurant and tell us why its the one on City Line Ave across from St. Joes.
Eric A Longenhagen

I've nearly been killed by at least 4 idiots leaving that parking lot.

Am I missing something with these reports of the White Sox being in on Robert? Seems like they would be less likely considering they're the only of the rumored teams to have not blown their pool amount already.
Eric A Longenhagen
1:07
They're on him and have more or less set the market at this point.

Matt Strahm, any chance he is a starter? Much of his prospect status was based on the idea that there was a starter in there.
Eric A Longenhagen
1:07
I still think he can start but if not he's a potential elite reliever
Johnny Rocket

You spoke promisingly about Miliano when you wrote up SDP. Any update? Seen him throw lately?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:08
I haven't but scouts out here have and he's throwing harder than he was in the fall.
Dancing Dan Mcgraw
1:09
what grade did you have on Trout?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:10
I was a sophomore in college just learning how to do this. The Scouting Bureau had the highest grade on him. I think PIT was next highest.

Best infield/outfield arm you've scouted? Both for the last calendar year and all-time?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:10
Last year: INF: Lucas Erceg OF: Monte Harrison
1:12
All time?
Probably Anthony Gose or Aaron Hicks in the outfield
1:13
Not sure on INF
That's all for me, heading to Mesa to see Luis Romero now...
See you next week, have a wonderful day.
