Numbers and maybe the attitude say something about him being a old high school player. Lots of parents holding the kid back these days to give them a competitive edge over the younger players-scouts are aware of it and don't like it at all. College coaches might actually like it-it is a BS way of cheating within the rules.

Holding them back when? Kindergarten or later in school? As the parent of a young boy, there are valid reasons to delay starting school beyond an athletic advantage.

I am talking middle school and high school and it is 100% for athletic advandages. There are kids right here in Wilmington being held back to play against younger,smaller kids.
There are occasional legit reasons to keep a younger kid back but I don't think it should ever include sports.

UNCWs Josh Roberson picked by the Marlins in the 12th as well.

What's the slot value for Roberson? Slot value for the 315th pick by Chicago was $131k; Roberson was picked 44 spots later. That's not life changing money.

They can offer him up to $125k without it affecting their overall pool that they have to spend on draftees. He will probably get between $100-125 to sign. Agree, not life changing money but unless he really jumps to be a top prospect next year you can safely say he'll loose a zero off the bonus.

Thanks for clarifying. I'm not plugged into that age group really, so I'm just unaware.

That makes sense. Best of luck to him regardless of his decision. I can only imagine the thrill of having your name called. Congrats Josh!

Feight picked in the 19th round by the Padres. They listed him as a 1B.

Congrats to Nick! While I'm confident Roberson signs, I think there's at least a small chance Feight comes back. If he signs, I wish him the best of luck. His sophomore season alone made it very likely he'd get taken somewhere in this range.

Seems like our offense could potentially take a huge hit
