The season is upon us, even if spring is not.

2018 MLB Draft Picks
#18
#33 - Compensation (Eric Hosmer)
#34 - Compensation (Lorenzo Cain)
#40 (Competitive Balance Round A)

018 Draft Names to Watch

RHP Kumar Rocker, N Oconnee HS, Georgia.
Spoiler!

OF Jarred Kelenic, Waukasha West HS, WI
Spoiler!

1B Triston Casas, American Heritage HS (FL).
Spoiler!

RHP Carter Stewart, Eau de Gallie HS (Ga).
Spoiler!

ANY Any, Any (Any). Any current top projected pick who slides for injury concerns. Includes current top prospect prospect SP Brady Singer, U of Florida.

Current Prospects to Watch:

OF Seuly Matias - Huge tools. Hit 2 HR in Lexington (A) season opener.

1B Nick Pratto - Top pick in 17 has advanced approach and good glove; needs to start tapping into power in first full year in minors. Also at Lexington.

OF Michael Gigliotti - Good defender in CF, good OBP skills, plus baserunner. Next mainstay in CF for KC, IMO. Advanced college bat also starting at Lexington.

OF Khalil Lee - Probably has highest upside in Royals' system. Could hit 30 HR in majors, could steal 30 bases. Plus defensive ability in RF. Nice test at Wilmington this year.

3B Emmanuel Rivera - Really nice approach and good contact skills. Power is still developing. Also getting a good test at Wilmington.

SP Foster Griffin - Made nice strides in 2017. Needs to continue to progress in 2018. Could be a lefty version of Jakob Junis (good breaking ball that he can really manipulate, OK fastball, good command).

1B Samir Duenez - Duenez still is intriguing, hoping for a step forward in his power production this year at Northwest Arkansas, which would turn him into a legit prospect.

Others to keep an eye on:
SP Gerson Garabito (Wilmington), OF Marten Gasparini (Lexington), C MJ Melendez (Lexington), RP Tyler Zuber (lexington), RP Richard Lovelady (Omaha), SP Dan Tillo (Lexington), SS Nicky Lopez (NWA), SP Scott Blewett (NWA), OF Brewer Hicklen (Idaho Falls),

In general, Lexington and Wilmington are the most interesting spots to watch. Nice depth and a lot of interesting pieces at both.

Some teams already have a gap. Cubs have the basket, Dodgers have elevated bleachers which are like 6 feet behind the wall, Cardinals have a planter box or some shit going around the fence, Brewers have bullpens between the fans and the wall, etc...

Just saw that 48 runners were left on base last night. Holy crap. Is that legit? That can't be right. 48 that reached maybe. Even that must be wrong, though.

Right, but some teams don't. The Royals had something similar like this happened in the 2015 ALCS against Toronto.

Bartman should have taught fans that you should just GTFO of the way of plays at the wall or foul lines.

On a different note, the Royals are now free to negotiate with anyone in regards to TV contract.

https://www.kansascity.com/sports/sp...220250390.html

The Royals’ TV negotiations just hit a major mile marker, so what’s next?

By Sam Mellinger
smellinger@kcstar.com

October 18, 2018 03:50 PM
Updated 3 hours 25 minutes ago

The Royals are free agents for the first time in a decade.

The final deadline for the team and Fox Sports to negotiate a new television contract has passed. Effective immediately, the Royals are free to negotiate with any network.

Their current deal with Fox is widely believed to be one of the worst for a team in major professional sports. It expires after the 2019 season.

“We view it as an exciting time,” said Kevin Uhlich, the Royals’ senior vice president for baseball operations. “We don’t view it negatively at all. It’s part of the process, and we’re up for it.”

Fox will pay the Royals about $25 million in the final year of the contract. Uhlich wouldn’t disclose either side’s final offer but said “it’s still a pretty big gap.”

After the 2016 season, the Reds, playing in one of two Nielsen markets smaller than Kansas City, replaced a deal that had been paying about $30 million with one believed to be worth about $1 billion over 15 years.

The Royals are believed to want a 10- or 15-year contract. Local TV deals are among the biggest and most important sources of revenue for franchises.

Despite a 104-loss season that included trades of stars Mike Moustakas and Kelvin Herrera, the Royals were again the most-watched prime-time television programming in Kansas City, and finished sixth among the 29 U.S.-based teams covered by Nielsen.

Among others, the Royals finished ahead of the Astros, Mariners, Yankees and Pirates in local ratings.

The Royals’ negotiation is complicated for lots of reasons, including that TV networks traditionally pay more for market size than local ratings. The TV industry is fairly chaotic, too, not just with Disney’s purchase of 21st Century Fox — which includes Fox Sports KC — but an uncertain future in the face of cord-cutting and streaming.

“The universe is wide open,” Uhlich said. “That’s what makes it so difficult to figure out what the best route is. But we know we have great content. We know that sports is No. 1. So we feel strongly that wherever we go that’s a plus for us. It’s good content. It gets great ratings.”

The Royals expect Fox to remain interested. The team has generally been happy with the partnership in every way except the most important, which is the payout.

The current deal gives Fox the right to review and match any final offer the Royals receive from a third party, with two exceptions: if the Royals start their own regional sports network, or if the offer is more than the team’s final offer to Fox.

The Royals have and will continue to explore all options but are expected to prioritize wide distribution. That likely means a more traditional partner that would be widely available through cable, supplemented with streaming options that could either be run by the partner or negotiated separately with a company like Amazon.

“What’s important for us is to not only cut a deal that’s good for us financially but that we don’t end up in a situation like the Dodgers are in,” Uhlich said of a deal with Time Warner Cable that leaves a large number of L.A. households unable to watch their games. “They don’t reach a lot of fans. That doesn’t help us. We want to make sure any direction we go we’re maximizing distribution and also maximizing revenue.”

Their fans are horrible, in my experience.

So after game, Frank Thomas mentions he’s never seen a bullpen like this (referring to Brewers) and asks Eric Kratz if he’s ever caught a bullpen like this before. He says no and rambles on . . . .

Does he even remember he was with the Royals in 2014??
