You might be able to go to the sortable board page and see them right now, I'm just waiting for the companion piece (which I'm sure will be read thoroughly) to be published with a direct link to it.
Eric Longenhagen's long lost bro
12:29
Remember when people were worried about tatis
Eric A Longenhagen
12:29
I do.
Ram

I really like Nate Pearson, he seems have all the parts to be really good, why is he not a top 15 pick? Any chance Giants pick him? He seems like their type, big arm, big shoulders, big guy.
Eric A Longenhagen
12:30
Yup, but a reliever for most scouts.
12:31
Zack Burdi throws 101 and has a chance for two above average or better secondaries and went in the back of round 1 because he's a reliever. Gauge this year's likely relief prospects based on that.
Joe
12:31
Have you heard anyone connected to the Braves for July 2?
Eric A Longenhagen
12:31
No. Remember, they're locked out of big signings because of last year.

Last week, you grouped Seranthony Dominguez with Sixto Sanchez and other Phillies pitchers prospects who have greatly improved their stock. How many of the Phillies SP prospects ranked ahead of him would he leapfrog if you re-did their prospect list today?
Eric A Longenhagen
12:33
Seranthony is hurt so that's a tough call right now, sorry.
Jon
12:33
What is Corbin Burnes upside? Back, mid or front of rotation starter?
Eric A Longenhagen
12:33
Upside probably mid-rotation but likely a back end guy. Again, great outcome for a 4th rounder.
Bleh
12:33
How much longer until we see Buehler in the big leagues? Can he oust someone from the roster (Sergio Romo perhaps) or does he have to wait for a guy to get hurt?
Eric A Longenhagen
12:33
I have no idea.

I have a 2000 word essay to submit but at the moment have 2213 words, what's the best way of cutting down content without making your work become too basic?
Eric A Longenhagen
12:34
In all seriousness, I'm the guy who just turns it in with an extra 213 words if I've done my rewrite and have already cut the fat.
Kyle
12:35
Have you heard anything from scouts on Trey Supak? Numbers look great, so curious if stuff is improved or if he's just on a good run.
Eric A Longenhagen
12:35
He was 88-91 for me in the spring. He strikes me as the ype of pitcher whose stuff does well in the low minors but plateaus at some point.
PTBNL
12:37
You buying the hot streaks from Chavis and Travis in the Red Sox system?
Eric A Longenhagen
12:37
I have both evaluated the same as I did in the offseason.
Luis Robert
12:37
Your best guess on where I start? A or A+?
Eric A Longenhagen
12:38
You totally need a week long warmup in the AZL. Definitely.
PhanGraphs

What's the concern level for JP Crawford?
Eric A Longenhagen
12:39
Mild to moderate. He's starting to hit a little bit now. 10 hits in last 7 games I think.
JIMMY V
12:39
Who the best SP stash right now?
Eric A Longenhagen
12:39
R.A. Cushy
Joe, Esq.
12:39
How far has Seth Romero's stock fallen?
Eric A Longenhagen
12:40
Far. He'll be drafted when a team doesn't like anyone else on the board.
Luis Robert
12:40
Any idea on the time frame for me to receive my work Visa and start playing minor league games everyday?
Eric A Longenhagen
12:41
This is an interesting question because A's pitcher Norge Ruiz still wasn't in Arizona last I checked. It could take a while.
Jack
12:41
Does Danny Jansen have a shot to be an everyday catcher?
Eric A Longenhagen
12:41
In my opinion, he does not.
Jimme Sherfy
12:42
Why haven't I got the call yet Eric? Is it cos of my awkward surname or just Dbacks being Dbacks and deciding to stick with Rodney
Eric A Longenhagen
12:43
Maybe not a great idea to shake up your bullpen and step on some toes to promote a guy who can't stay healthy.
Hunter Greene
12:44
If you could choose one non baseball player to clone and field a team with who are you choosing, i'm taking russell westbrook
Eric A Longenhagen
12:45
Westbrook is a good one, there are probably good soccer players who I wish fate wold have handed a mitt instead of cleats.
12:46
I'd also just enjoy watching an entire baseball team of Ted Washingtons
or Gilbert Browns
Timoth
12:47
Nellie Rodriguez or Johan Mieses. Both have stunk so far this year and I mean stunk, is it just a case of adjustment to a higher level of pitching or something to worry about
Eric A Longenhagen
12:47
Mieses looked really heavy when I saw him early in the year. Nellie was always more of a 4A guy for most scouts.
