About the author

Clint Scoles

I grew up on the mean gravel roads of Iowa where I started my love for baseball from the age of 2. George Brett and the voice of Denny Matthews deepened my love even more for the Royals as my father and I spent summers listening to the team on our deck or in the car on our way to or from my little league and high school games. Sports was always the common bond that my father and I enjoyed and the Royals were in the center of that. I currently live in La Vista with my wife, two sons, two dogs and a pair of gross cats where we are grinding through until we can move somewhere warm when we retire. I own Casino Cab Company and Bluffs Affordable Auto Repair in Council Bluffs trying to build my 1% empire. If you are in the area you can find me at Omaha Storm Chasers games on most nights or just follow me on twitter @ClintScoles.

    They should always draft for the best player and I believe they have done that. Things don’t workout always because you don’t know how players are going to develop. The Rays wouldn’t have waited til the the 8th Rd to take Matt Moore, Mike Trout wouldn’t have went 25th if all teams knew how the future was going to break. It’s a crap shoot.

    Clint, this article was a great read. Thanks for taking the time to write it. Almost makes me wonder if the approach to the draft shouldn’t just be to take the best available player even if its not an area of need. Then you would at least be able to trade that player for a pitcher that is a little more MLB ready.

    Yes I did but that is because most Cuban players are refined and ready to contribute. Chapman went straight to AAA and was in the majors prior to the end of the year, same for Puig while many others skip the minors entirely. For Arguelles he was basically broken goods before even landing in the minors as it sounds like he damaged his arm pretty much right away.

    You omitted Noel Arguelles from the article and frankly, I’m surprised the Royals haven’t omitted him from the organization themselves. Putrid stats ever since his arm troubles.

    He had some type of discomfort in his arm but I believe it was fixed by rest. No surgery was needed
