    Maybe our 8 scouts all specialize in pitching.  Hopefully we can hire one catching scout for next years draft

    Not sure if anyone of these guys will be good but have to say I’m very happy to see us adding pitching to the organization. 
     
    Now let’s add some great pitching coaches and catching to go along with it.

    Maybe I'm dense, but I'm not quite following what he's saying here.  "Not having to assign a good number of the pitchers they just took."  I mean, I get that they don't HAVE to, technically speaking...But isn't that always the case for any team in any draft?  What's the specific point he's trying to make?

    Given that they’ve gone with what looks to be relatively cheap college pitching, I’d bet there’s a good chance they can throw a big offer at Albright. 
    Honestly, since they’ve chosen 18 other college pitchers so far, the fact they deviated for this one guy makes me think they’re confident in signing him, otherwise they would have just drafted another college arm the way things are going.

    I actually like what they've done with all the Ps.  Some of them are lottery ticket types...which is good.  I just am surprised and a bit disappointed there hasn't been one catcher thrown into the mix at some point.  But whatevs...all good

    At least three of them will convert to being catchers anyway.

    Soccer mom just grabbed $20 worth of meat from the deli to make sandwiches for her kids. Then a professional chef came in and got $20 worth of meat. 
    They both know the same about meat!

    The Los Angeles Dodgers have selected all pitchers with their 8 picks so far today (only 2 being high schoolers with their first 2 picks). The San Francisco Giants have taken 9 straight college pitchers with their first 9 picks with the exception of taking a college outfielder just now in the 10th round.

    really hope we're saving a few bucks the last several picks -- to use on an overslot HS guy

    Last two picks have been uninspiring -- at least from a MLB draft rankings perspective (which likely doesn't mean much at all). Still...hope a stud HS pitcher or catcher is coming soon

    The problem is Dipoto did that with every pick. Some of these guys definitely have a lot of upside.

    Fourts reacted to sportstr44 in Angels select RHP Jake Smith, Miami (FL), 171st overall in the 6th round   
    BASEBALL AMERICASCOUTING REPORT Jake Smith Representative: NA Signing Scout: NA Smith ranked as a top 200 member of the 2020 class out of junior college a year ago but went undrafted and made his way to Miami, where he pitched to a 3.45 ERA in 47 innings, with 63 strikeouts (12.1 K/9) and 14 walks (2.7 BB/9). Smith was used out of the bullpen for most of the season but transitioned to a starting role in April, where he was largely successful outside of a regional matchup against South Florida where he allowed five hits and five earned runs in just 3.1 innings. Smith has a three-pitch mix led by a fastball that sits in the 92-94 mph range and has touched 98 this spring. His slider is his best secondary, a low-to-mid-80s breaker that has shown above-average potential with solid tilt when he hits on it and keeps it down. His third pitch is a firm, upper-80s changeup that he doesn’t go to often but features solid fade and drop to the arm side. Smith has a bit of a funky arm action with a bit of effort in his finish, but he’s thrown enough strikes to warrant a shot at starting at the next level.

    In the 4th round, i don't mind taking a guy who is very likely (or even for sure) a RP.  If you think he's good, then take him.  Angels sure as heck could use some high quality, home grown RPs right now.  So no problem with it -- if the scouts (all 8 of them) believe in the guy then great...i'm in

    Looks like Minasian had been reading my stuff. 
    Three straight collegiate pitchers is EXACTLY what this organization's farm system needed.
