NEWBERG REPORT PLUS — NOVEMBER 2, 2006
So I’m sitting here eating lunch and flipping through some webpages, and I land on www.BaseballAmerica.com, whose lead story is teased as follows:
“If the high school class of 2006 was less than impressive, no one is making the same complaints about next year’s draft class. As the World Wood Bat Championship showed there are plenty of talented arms and a number of intriguing bats in what is shaping up as one of the best high school classes in years.”
Prediction: Assuming the newly modified CBA doesn’t change materially when it expires, the Rangers are going to have some very, very difficult 40-man roster decisions to make in November 2011, maybe more so than any team in baseball. Either that, or Jon Daniels is going to be able to make a blockbuster trade or two in 2009 and 2010. And I mean blockbusters.
Or, more likely, both.
Of course, Max will be older then than Erica is now, which I can’t even imagine.
So I think I’m gonna go back to eating my lunch.
