Okay - I'm officially annoyed. Not worried, I mean, hell, next year's draft is deeper in hitting talent (that's my understanding, anyway), so its not likely Conforto's going to go higher than he did this year, especially if he's not eligible to return to OSU. He almost has to sign. If he doesn't, than a pox on both their houses.

Meh - to Nitey's point: Whatever.

At this point, two choices in the first round next year is not an awful outcome.

No reason for this. Missed five weeks of developmental time. I was lukewarm on the selection to begin with, this has made me a bit cooler on it.

Personally, don't think this makes any significant difference. I still think he opens next year in St. Lucie.

The development time is the important thing...getting him with professional coaches and such.

Per Heyman we finally have an agreement with Conforto, pending physical.

Bat-first left fielder who hits in the middle of a lineup.

Glad he's signed. This was probably my favorite 1st round selection of the Alderson era.

Lefty Kevin McReynolds with more walks, or, Lucas Duda numbers but a higher average. . . . . . (I'm just throwing that out there as a guess). I don't think he profiles to be a top hitter in the league, but his ceiling is probobly a solid #5 hitter type, maybe #2/#3 if he gets on base a lot.
