    MLB 2017 MLB Draft Thread

    Draft is starting now. Minnesota is on clock and it's going to be interesting to see who they pick. MLB Network did a cool piece on Hunter Greene and his family, he's a great kid.

    Was hoping Greene would have fell to 3 but I wasn't holding my breath

    Watched Gore pitch in the eastern finals vs a local team. Struck out 13 on their way to the State.

    His leg kick will drive you crazy... unless he turns out like Kershaw or something.

    Luke Heimlich went undrafted. So, teens making mistakes at age 15 means the end of their careers. This is why Trump won the election.

    If you call molesting a 6 year old kid a "mistake" then sure.

    You say that as though it's Jacko (R.I.P) touching those kids and sharing his bed with them and acting as if these things are normal for a grown man to do or that he's just a kid who never grew up.

    I never said anything about Michael Jackson. I'm not sure what he has to do with anything.

    But, if we're going to discuss him, unlike Heimlich Michael Jackson never plead guilty to those allegations.

    Heimlich couldn't afford a Johnnie Cochran or a Tom Mesereau who can take his case to trial and get him acquitted of 14 charges of conspiracy and child molestation.

    Re: 2017 MLB Draft Thread

    True, and I admittedly know little of his case. I learned what I'm responding to just by Googling his name, so if he's innocent then he's innocent and getting passed in the MLB draft is only one small brick in a larger pie of problems/issues regarding the matter.

    But the conversation began under the premise that he was a "15 year old...making mistakes..." and not that he got wrongfully charged and couldn't afford to adequately defend his name, so I was forming my responses operating under the premise that his guilt is the given "...making mistakes..." implies.
