It's time to bench Palka.

We have clinched third. Who is available at three or is it way too early to know?

Too early to know.

Hopefully Rutschman, though.

Definitely. If his 2019 approximates his 2018, he wonít just be the best catcher available, but likely the best position player available.

If so, letís hope BALT and KC draft pitchers.

On the other hand, if Rutschman goes 1 or 2, then maybe weíll find that another stud pitcher has fallen into our laps.

Really, we won't have an idea until April or May who might be the best picks at 3.

Take a look at the Baseball America mock draft, none of their top 6 even went in the top 15, some of those guys fell out of round 1. Just really early.

Indeed. Some high school junior might vault up the charts.

I think it is why I love the baseball draft so much. The NFL you kind of know earlier, and then the combine shakes stuff up. The NBA you almost surely know, But with Baseball, you literally have no idea. In 6 months, a kid can get shoulder inflamation, find or lose 5 mph on his fastball, lose the zone, grow 2 inches and find some power, lose his swing, gain bat speed. It is such a collection of so many little tools.

What are the bonus pool implications of getting the 3rd pick?

Did this have any impact on who the Sox were able to draft/sign this past June (for example, drafting and signing Bryce Bush)?

Having the third pick means their bonus pool will be larger than it would be if they had the fourth pick.


The FutureSox draft tracker really tells the story.



  • Total bonus pool alloted: $10,589,900
  • Sum of amounts that hit pool (Rounds 1-10, plus any amount over 125k for 11-40): $10,959,400
    • White Sox went over pool by $369,500, on which they will pay an extra 75% penalty ($277,125)
  • Total amount spent on bonuses for all rounds: $12,284,400
  • Total amount spent including penalties: $12,561,525


They signed their first 34 picks, and didn't sign picks 35-40. That, plus their willingness to go over their total bonus pool amount (and thus pay the penalty), allowed them to pay overslot for Walker and still sign Bush. All in all, they seemed to handle their bonus pool allocation expertly.


EDIT: I realize I probably didn't answer your question. In my opinion, given how well they handled their bonus pool in 2018, I suspect with their first pick they will take the player ranked highest on their draft board - probably again a college player - and then still have plenty of money to draft whoever they want in subsequent rounds.

When I was in high school, there were two really good high school Basketball player in the Chicago area who were the same age/year: Mark Aguirre a Isiah Thomas. When they were high school juniors, everyone said they would go first and second in the NBA draft.

They did, several years later.

Yup, the NBA you generally know early on who the top 2-3 picks are, NFL is a little more variance but similar.

I mean think about this, The generational player of this age group is easily Mike Trout. But he was never supposed to be Mike Trout. Jason Heyward was SUPPOSED to be Mike Trout, but fell short. He is still an all-star, but viewed by most to be a disappointing player.

Iím looking forward to see who we can bolster the system with. Chances are, this selection will not make an impact for some time. Thus, I want to see the progress our prospects make between now and the start of next season.
