    Default Danny Farquar

    I mentioned this to someone while watching Danny pitch last night.

    Danny looks like Kevin Ardoin near the end of Kevin's senior year. He just cannot throw strikes consistently. He has serious control problems (as evidenced by the numerous hit batters and walks last night and previous starts).


    GEAUX CAJUNS!!

    Danny has had serious control problems this year and this seems to be his biggest problem. He still has good stuff, movement on his pitches, velocity, and he is getting K's although not has many as last year. Does anyone think he has slide down in the draft far enough that he may consider coming back next year to try to get it together and improve his stock and get a larger contract.

    Danny has a couple of options. He could get drafted this year and sign (usually players get larger contracts if they are Jr.'s v.s. Sr.'r if drafted in the same slot), he could come back his Sr. year then sign with the team that drafts him this year before next years draft (a player has the option to sign with the team that drafts him his Jr. year up to one year later), or come back his Sr. and reenter in the 2009 draft (take his chances).

    What do ya'll think or what have ya'll heard? If Danny does not come back we will take a serious hit pitching wise next season with only one proven starter coming back in Cook.

    Actually, the drafting team loses rights to a player August 15. The rule previously allowed the team to sign a 4-year college player up until the day he attends class or a JUCO player anytime before the next draft a year later, commonly referred to as a "draft and follow". The draft and follow rule is no more.

    MLB is more concerned with a pitchers "stuff" than college stats, but the draft is extremely unpredictable.

    When did this rule change because it was still in effect when Kevin Ardoin was playing, he decided to come back his Sr. year. After his Sr. year he was being offered by the previous year's team who drafted him, he ended up reentering the draft and was drafted higher.

    So what do you think Danny will do? Also any thoughts on Scott Hawkins and the draft. I will not be surprised if Hawkins comes back.

    Scott is a wildcard. Sure he can hit but he has yet to prove himself as a position player due to a previous shoulder injury. Depending on how he performs for scouts will play a major role in if he stays or goes.

    The rules are confusing. MLB changed the signing deadline last year. I think you are confusing the former draft and follow rules for juco players and the signing deadline for 4-year college players.

    Every draft eligible player would like a big bonus check and no more class work. We shall see. I have no idea what will happen.
