  1. Notice Nats failed to sign Suarez. Do they get a compensation pick for failing to sign a 2nd round pick?

  2. I don’t think so on Suarez
    Dear Santa Claus. Both Fedde and Purke
    Come off TJ stronger and focused.
    at least brass did not have to go overslot
    mans lose a number one

  3. I think the actually do get an additional pick next year, one spot lower than originally picked. 58?

    1. Kilgore did post this:

      “Left-hander Andrew Suarez, the No. 57 overall pick, decided to return to school, both the University of Miami baseball team’s official Twitter account and well as Suarez’s Instagram page announced at around 3 p.m. Friday, two hours before the deadline. The Nationals will receive the 58th pick in next year’s draft as compensation.”

      Still don’t know the official on 9th round Byler and the 22nd round pick Salters?

  4. Peric. Beyer is not signing
    I came here to say: soul drummer.
    Your Sens deserve Voth after his start
    Tonight. Pivetta can go to W- bridge
    Strange ifSalters does not sign since JJ
    Is in hags.

    1. Certainly wouldn’t mind seeing Voth in a Sens uni. He’s mastered the level at Potomac by all accounts and is worthy of the challenge of Harrisburg if there’s room in rotation.

  5. SS has a ways to go to win 20 games
    Scooter Brewer is Steven’s nemesis in a young career
    What a grind this year

  6. Good afternoon Peric: draft list on dcbaseball
    Says no sign on salters
    Congrats to 17. Joan Baez DSL All star
    While Luis Torres joins the two starters
    A night doublebill each night. Lol
    Good to see Mattheus and Miller Time B note
    Rehabbing with Barrett boys. Seems like
    Yesterday Michael was catching expo arms.
    Bummer about Keller. Luke: is a 60 day
    Label severe or just like CC in NYY- season shutdown ??
    Time to flatten the brew this weekend !!
