Exclamation Austin Meadows

Not sure if this was a fluke sale or what (these typically sell in the $150-$200 range), but this was an eye opener.

Would love to see him go #2 to the Cubs... Would do great things for his prices!

A few days ago, an Orange Ref Auto BGS 9.5 got an impressive sum as well.

Seeing a lot of places with Appel and Stanek. I could see Appel to the 'Stros. I would think signability becomes less of a concern with his eligibility up and the Astros in desperate need of pitching.

Meadows to Houston might not hurt prices too much, but it would be nice to see him go #2 and get the treatment from the Cubs fanbase. Although, #1 draft pick status never hurts either

If the Cubs got him Meadows and Almora would be quite the duo to bring up together. I can also see Clint Frazier being drafted high. He has a vague similarity to Trout...

I have to agree with you here. Prob better in the long run if he go's with the Cubs....

I've seen a mock or two that has Frazier #1. I don't know much about him, but he was impressive in the Under Armour game this year.

I'd like it even more if he falls to the Sox at #7, lol.

I'm almost positive the sales aren't flukes. Big fan of Meadows myself though I've been more impressed with what I've seen from Clint Frazier in games. They should be neck and neck for best high school prospect in next year's draft.

I saw him play a few games back in October at a tournament in Jupiter...I was very UNimpressed with him. Didn't have an impressive tournament by any means. Didnt make the all tourney team (you'd expect that from a guy thought to be a top 5 pick in 13'),...I'd be surprised if he goes in the top 5 myself...

I caught the tail end of a draft conversation on MLB Tonight on MLB Network the other night. It was largely focused on Meadows and Frazier. All positive analysis. I'm sure that has something to do with the uptick in interest.

Depending on what you have in them, strike while the iron is hot. Guaranteed profit is a very good thing.

the blue shocked me... Gold not so much since the last one went for 300+ raw... (that shocked me then.. LOL) I think I will hold out for the draft. I do want to keep at least 1 9.5 rainbow even after the draft unless prices go Harper on us.

Appel will sign with Houston, as he's from that area I believe.
