Was it the 2008 draft where we failed to draft multiple top picks? Or was it another year? Anyways, I read where Davidson was a 3rd round pick for the 'Stros in 2008, but chose to go to Georgia. He struggled his freshman and sophmore years mightly, but started to turn it around his junior season.
I was wondering if the ceiling is high on this guy because of his 2008 prospect status? He is mashing at Greenville right now, but wasn't sure if it was smoke and mirrors for this kid. I figure if he was a former 3rd rounder, he has to posess some upside as a prospect. Anyways, just wanted to get the thoughts of the CrawfishBoxes faithful on Davidson.
Secondly, I read on mlb.com of Springer's visit to MMP for his physical. It was a short visit, but everything went perfect. I imagine negotiations will kick up here in a day or two as we approach the August 15th deadline; however, his dad did mention he and George visited the Long Island Ducks. Gasp?
Jack Armstrong is struggling in the Cape league and continues to battle nagging injuries. Yeah, that 6'7" 230lb frame with a 96mph heater is sexy and all, but do you think we made a mistake on this guy? I'm wondering if the injuries is what is holding up the negotiations.
