Kyle Zimmer was a fine pick, but I don't know why they say him only pitching two years is such a big positive. Projecting injuries to minor league pitchers is impossible. The Royals passing Mark Appel might be a big mistake.

At hindsight, six other teams passed on him too. I was confused at first, but what an advantage to sign a kid right out of the blocks instead of delaying and hindering his potential development like last year with Bubba. I don't know how all the new cap rules work, but Boras is a douche, that much is certain.

That's what I thought at first too, but Zimmer is gonna be great, and new collective bargaining agreement is confusing. I think it's hilarious Appel went to the Pirates. you know that's the last place he wanted to go, which is perfect.
