2015 Draft Pick Race
Updated through 8/31/14 - 25 games left for Cubs.
For failing to sign top overall pick Brady Aiken, the Houston Astros will get the 2nd pick in next year's draft on top of their regular pick.
Javy seems to be getting progressively more clueless at the plate -- struck out on an 0-2 pitch in his eyes. HIs baseball IQ is a concern -- if you swing at the first 2 pitches that are not in the strike zone, it is very, very unlikely that the 0-2 pitch will be a strike. Pitchers seem be be almost laughing at him now -- they throw pitches nowhere near the zone on 0-2, and yet he still swings.
This can't be helping his development...time to sit for a bit.
