2015 Draft Pick Race
Updated through 8/18/14 - about 40 games left
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.
Epic yes, I'm starting to wonder about historic. Cubs website shows EJax to be pitching to a 6.75 ERA over his last 10 starts, pretty much has to go higher after tonight. Wondering how close we're getting to the worst ERA over 10 starts in MLB history.
I realize the Cubs have been saying they're going to let Jackson work things out for the rest of the season, but my gut tells me this could be it for him. That's a lot of money to wash down the toilet, but you can't just say to the world, "We volunteer to automatically lose every fifth game."
pitchers are depreciating values, once they show command and control of their pitches I wouldn't worry much about their arbitration or free agency clocks. Get what you can out of them. Less than 1% become aces worthy of worrying about.
