Re: 2014 Draft Picks 


Thanks Mike.  I was hoping someone would put all the picks in one place.

Charlie White?  They said during the Maryland/Virginia game today that he was drafted by the Yankees.  But BA also lists him under the Cubs draftees.

He was drafted by Yankees last year, he's from Naperville, Chicago area.

And the kid from Purdue is a life-long Cub fan

Is Brad Bass a kid who will easily sign? He's local but looks like he has a really good pitcher's frame.

Help me out tout...I only know how to cut and pate didrect links....which doesnt work here...I am not computer savy.

There is a great article of picks 11-40 on bleachernation as well as info and some vids.

here is the link

http://www.bleachernation.com/2014/06/07/live-2014 -mlb-draft-day-three-rounds-11-through-40/

and here is what they said about the kid in question.

33rd Round (979): Brad Bass, RHP, Illinois (HS) – Another tough-to-sign high school arm for the Cubs. Here’s MLB.com’s take on their 165th ranked prospect: “Scouts were excited about Bass’ projectability and gave him a chance to pitch his way into the top three rounds this spring. He hasn’t lived up to those hopes, however, as he played basketball during the winter and wasn’t in peak baseball shape when the spring began. It’s still easy to dream on Bass, but whether he’ll go high enough in the Draft to be lured away from a Notre Dame scholarship remains to be seen. He’s lean and athletic, with plenty of room to add strength in the future. He’ll show a 91-mph fastball early in games, though his velocity tapers off to the mid-80s in later innings. Bass’ slider has the potential to become an out pitch. It has some bite and reaches the low 80s at times, and he commands it well. His changeup needs a lot of work, and some scouts aren’t enamored of his delivery.” That’s just one take, but that very much reads to me like a young man who is going to take more to sign than the Cubs are likely to want to risk. Maybe that wouldn’t be bad for Bass, obviously, as he could go to Notre Dame, continue to develop, and be drafted higher in three years. At 6’6″ 215lbs, he’s a huge kid who might just take a little more time, as big pitchers sometimes do.

So type something or paste something directly into the comment area that you want to be the actual clicky.  Then highlight that and click the link button in the comment control panel (second row, to the right).  It will open another window that you can paste in the actual link address (link url).  Hit insert...profit.

thanks zighawk, now how do I turn it off once I post the link???wink



Glad you figured it out.  There have been a few problems since they "upgraded" this site.  For instance, I always have to hit the refresh button when I page back to see new posts.  No big deal, but a slight annoyance.

Re: 2014 Draft Picks 


Good article from Sharma with quotes from McCleod on the draft:

http://espn.go.com/blog/chicag...f-days-for-cubs

A couple asides:  Samardzija doesn't sound like a guy wanting out in a big way to me.  And, that is Mike Olt's brother with the tweet on the right of the page.  Thought that was cool.

Carson Sands, Dylan Cease, and Michael Cantu are some of the bigger high school names. Isiah Gilliam is a guy who re-classified to this draft very late but who has some ability and is one of the youngest players in the draft. Kevonte Mitchell is one of the most athletic players in the draft and a HS basketball star.

Jordan Brink looks like a great pick in the later rounds. He hasn't focused much on pitching but has 2 plus pitches.

Joey Martarano got a $100k offer last year from the Phillies but decided to attend BSU and play football. He doesn't play for their baseball team so it seems like the Cubs might be trying to get him to play in the Northwest League while also allowing him to play football. He's a linebacker with really good power.

Re: 2014 Draft Picks 


Here's a nice site which tracks the Cubs draft pick signings.  Only Zagunis and Griggs have official signed so far.  Color coded to indicate who is/isn't likely to sign based on media reports, baseball sources, twitters etc.  Some indications of players likely to sign come from the players themselves.

Re: 2014 Draft Picks 


this is some real good news...it appears a good bit of the pitching wants to sign including some of the tougher signings

so according to the chart these pitchers are interested in signing

Stinnett
Carson Sands
Justin Steele
James Norwood
James Farris
Ryan Williams-  could be a hidden gem
Jeremy Null
Brad Markey
Brad Depperman
Jordan Minch- likely to bounce back it sounds

hoping for a couple more pitchers to show interest but heres the ones I hope we sign

Stinnett
Sands
Steele
Cease
Norwood
Williams
Brink
Bass

a few good position draftees have interest too including our first pick

Schwarber
Kevonte Mitchell
Joey Martarano

heres a few more tough ones I hope sign

Isiha Gilliam- looking doubtful
Michael Cantu
Andrew Ely
D.J. Peters
Riley Adams

So 16 of 40 get special attention

dont know what kind of money we have but 16 of 40 signing doesnt seem like a lot...I could be wrongnoidea

Only one looks doubtful at this point.  With a bunch there is just speculation but no concrete information one way or the other.  Plenty of time until the deadline.  I had fun clicking on some of those twitter links.

only reason one is doubtful is because Mcleod doesnt seem eager to draft him right now..hope he changes his mind.

It maybe speculation but its from a good or primary source...most of the tough signings I think will sign if the Cubs want them bad enough

Re: 2014 Draft Picks 


Jake Stinnett's season is over as Maryland was bounced from the NCAA tournament.  McCleod says that with his workload this year he might get just 15-20 innings with the team, so we won't get a good read on him until next year.
