  1. I've put together a Google Docs spreadsheet that anyone can access/copy. It gives the full draft order and Top 254 prospects. Three empty mocks are set up, for those that like to put together multiple mocks of their own. It's my own design, so I highlight the Ravens in each round, as well as teams with multiple picks in the first three rounds. Feel free to copy it to your own computer and utilize it. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-qYlMTWWIISYFT7SmNki9i3W4tGG1dVvIwBVBN1Lu_o/edit#gid=639889033
  2. The Patriots have one pick in the 1st round, two in the 2nd, and three in the 3rd. Subject to change, naturally.
  3. I'd be happy to see us get him. Currently FanGraphs has him as their #74th ranked prospect. We pick #1, #41, #71, and #79. ...and they added this:
  4. Here's the link to the FanGraphs Top Prospects page> https://www.fangraphs.com/prospects/the-board/2019-mlb-draft?sort=-1,1&type=0&pageitems=10000000000000&pagenum=0 As well, Kiley McDaniel posted this on April 9th:
  5. Grats @TonySoprano on the win. =)
  6. I hear you. Yes, it's among my favorites now.
  7. Yeah, those stats came after OBP and SLG, and are have been part of what has become part of normal baseball discussion, though I'm still a bit slow on some (like FiP). These newer terms are the ones I'm struggling with. It'll take time, but I'll get there. Exit Velocity is about as simple as it gets... how hard a ball is hit. There really doesn't seem to be a learning curve with that one.
  8. At 54-years old, the bulk of my life has been accustomed to traditional stats like Wins & ERA, AVG (BA), HR's & RBI's, with an occasional 'new' stat like OBP & SLG integrated into the mix. This integration was slow and easy to adapt to. Like a new pair of glasses, these stats were better lens' when looking at how to determine a player's value. Now I find myself a bit overwhelmed trying to come to terms with Spin Rate, Swinging Strike Rate, K Rate, etc. It's like cramming for a test you hadn't even studied for. LOL! Progress is, by definition, "forward or onward movement toward a destination." This new age of statistical assimilation is progress. While a bit much at first, in time it will be the new norm. Such is life... out with the old, in with the new. I have a ways to go to learn it all, but appreciate having a place filled with people who can help with that. I imagine I'm not alone.
  9. Yeah, both McGovern & Lindstrom are solid. Lindstrom in particular may slip into R1.
  10. I'd be surprised if Bozeman became a starting center in the league. We need help, which is why you see guys like Kiper and McShay mocking Bradbury or McCoy to the Ravens.
  11. My opinion on NC State center Garrett Bradbury has shifted notably. I initially had ranked him in the Top 30 but have since dropped him well back because he has real issues with bull rushes/anchoring. The Ravens may be better served targeting a center like Erik McCoy from Texas A&M, but I don't see him as a Round 1 talent. I do feel he could come off the board in R1, but may truly be a R2 guy. Anyway, if anyone is interested I have spent untold hours creating an Excel Spreadsheet laying out the draft, the top players, and with multiple tabs to allow for numerous mocks. So, if interested, you can copy it and use it for yourself. It has the Ravens highlighted, but you can adjust that if you prefer to see a different team.

  12. It's great to see Rutschman (6'2-216 S/R) having an outstanding season. Odds are he'll be our pick at #1, though we have a ways to go before then. He's also considered a good defender behind the plate and seems like a strong overall #1.
  13. I'm curious if Mountcastle is going to get a the bulk of his play at first base. I think it's the position he has the best shot at providing average+ defense. Has there been any word on which position he's going to play? 1B/3B/LF/DH?
  14. Either way, he wasn't trying to avoid the ball, which he should be looking for, and even if he didn't realize it, why run into the third out at third?
  15. Bad base-running by Villar, twice on the same play. smh You have to be looking for the ball on the way to second, then he ran himself into an out trying to go to third.
