2018 MiLB draft results thread

Recommended Posts

I know last year people wanted to see the results from various other people's amateur drafts so they could make their decision in their own league so I'm going to post ours here. It's a 16 team dynasty league, just like in my sig, and yes we draft only a few weeks after the draft itself happens which is way earlier than most. Pitching is favored in our league which given the results should be pretty obvious. Anyways, here's round 1, we're still working on round 2. Just for the record I stockpiled the hell out of picks in this draft to rebuild my farm, my picks are bold.

 

1.1 Hunter Greene

1.2 Kyle Wright

1.3 Brendan McKay

1.4 MacKenzie Gore

1.5 Royce Lewis

1.6 Keston Hiura

1.7 Shane Baz

1.8 J.B Bukauskas

1.9 Trevor Rodgers

1.10 Alex Faedo

1.11 David Peterson

1.12 D.L Hall

1.13 Austin Beck

1.14 Seth Romero

1.15 Evan White

1.16 Pavin Smith

 

I don't think any of it is too shocking. Beck and Pavin slid a little. Haseley and Adell still out there and pitching looking a bit scarce now.

For me, if any of Greene,Wright,Gore,Lewis,McKay make it to you then they're no brainers. After those guys it's a lot of preference. Personally I took Keston Hiura because I think he's a very safe, very fasting moving pick and still has nice high average 20HR upside at 2B, but you can make a case for another handful of guys there as well.

Hiura lasting to double digits in these drafts is  nuts to me. I think he's a strong contender for first overall. Steal for al those that got him in above drafts.

I have an issue in my dynasty league and wanted to get opinions.  I thought this would be the most appropriate place since it involves a 1st year player draft. 

 

The dynasty league that I am is in its 2nd year.  We will  be having our first 1st year draft shortly.

 

I picked up Miles Mikolas a couple month ago when  was rumored to be returning to the MLB. He previously pitched in a mlb organization for five years.  He has enough innings to not even be eligible for the minors according to league rules.        

 

Tonight the commissioner drops Mikolas from my team with the explanation that  Miles Mikolas is part of our upcoming draft. He is an International Free Agent and IFA rules apply. Thanks.

 

The rules say 

 

ENTRY DRAFT: 
Each year we will have a 3 round draft sometime after major league baseball holds it's first year player entry draft. This draft will include players drafted in the MLB draft and all international players signed since the beginning of the previous RSD draft .

 

Am I right to be upset that a player who was previously with a MLB organization should not be in a 1st year draft?  Is anyone else in a dynasty league where Mikolas would be in the 1st year player draft?

Not enough detail for me to say definitively one way or another.

Just from what you posted, it appears your league calls it an "entry draft" which is not necessarily the same as a "first-year player draft". And even if it is a FYP draft, it all depends on how your league handles it. Too bad this is your league's first draft, otherwise there would be precedent for handling IFAs that have enough previous MLB experience to disqualify one from being considered a rookie (like Eric Thames). That means that however your league handles Mikolas, the Mikolas ruling is setting the precedent, if not already covered in the constitution/bylaws/rules.

Technically, Mikolas is an IFA. So if the reference is made in the rules that IFAs must enter your league through the "entry draft" then I guess the draft makes sense.

Personally, in the league I created, we call it an "amateur draft" and therefore already state in the constitution that only amateurs signing their very first MLB-affiliated contract qualifies - automatically disqualifying anyone that previously signed, like Thames or Mikolas. Our rule would also disqualify a guy who never made an MLB appearance but signed a pro (minors) contract with an MLB team, then went overseas to blossom as an overseas pro, then came back stateside to sign an MLB deal and make his MLB debut - this theoretical player would be part of free agent pool, not our draft pool.

I think you have a right to be upset that you've rostered Mikolas for over a month and the commissioner just now made a move - leaving you with the inference that he's part of your team. But the interpretation of the rules - if vague at the moment - is up to the commissioner to clarify and set precedent.

Good luck.

He's considered a free agent in ours.  You got jobbed.  This should have been addressed months ago if they had a problem with it.  Would anyone be complaining if  you picked up Jorge Cantu from the Mexican league?  I highly doubt it.  You made a smart move and shouldn't have him taken away because you had the foresight to make the addition.  Send him an e-mail and give him your reasons.  If he won't reverse the decision, at least you were able to make you case and tell him how you feel about it.

How was Eric Thames treated in your league last year? However Thames was treated, Mikolas should be treated the same.

i had basically the same thing happen to me with thames last year - i picked him up at the end of 2016 knowing that his korean contract was ending. that didn't just put him on my team, but it gave me topping rights (i.e. right to match the high bid by other owners in the auction and get the player, which is really powerful under our contract league format - basically, the topping rights holder always gets the player unless he's just got other plans for that position or somebody really goes crazy with a bid.) 

 

no one commented on the move at the time, but like four months later, when thames signed with the brewers and fangraphs started running all those articles about his wild projections, everyone started yelling and screaming like little babies and voted to strip me of the topping rights since "he'd been in korea at the time". our rules didn't say anything like that, we'd been operating by the rule that anybody who's played in MLB is ownable after that, but, they yelled a lot and won

 

it kind of sucked. i ended up with thames anyway, since i was pretty pissed, but i had to pay a lot more for him

 

people writing up new rule sets should make sure to cover this kind of stuff in detail so there's no ambiguity

It is one of those things I just don't see the other side of the issue.  A first year player draft in a dynasty league is for players in their first year in a MLB organization.  What difference does it make if Mikolas and Thames were playing in Asia or retired and cameback?

that's what *i* said

 

i mean in my case they didn't put him in the draft, they recognized that he'd exhausted MLB rookie eligibility. they just insisted (retroactively) that i couldn't own him while he was under contract in korea. "what f_____g difference does that make," i said, but, they wouldn't listen

Note mine but Ralph from Razzball posted the first round of one he did the other day on Twitter which I found helpful because the idea of Hiura or Ramos lasting to the double digits seems impossible to me.

It's been quite a time since I made this thread and one thing I'm still noticing is that people are not giving Seth Romero near enough credit. Yes he had an issue with doing stupid things in college, but talent wise he was the best lefty in the college class and to see him going 28th, I just don't get it. He has as much upside as anyone not named Greene or Gore.
