6/30 Minors





This is a minors thread to open a discussion on draft philosophies stemming from "baseball wisdom" Buck Showalter uses in the draft as well as, at the suggestion of shroom, to accommodate the onslaught of posts tonight as we follow David (the Goliath pitcher), MLDS, and Wieland.

Late last week, I heard Tim Kurkjian on a radio show speak about blue eyes in the context of Buck Showalter's draft rules of thumb. They are:
(1) Do not draft guys with 10 to 2 feet (meaning pointed out); look for pigeon toe guys
(2) Do not draft 18-yo with full grown beards; they won't grow anymore
(3) Be careful of blue-eyed guys (they didn't say why)


Such is the sage advice from wisened, old baseball men.
