Orioles 2008 Draft coverage Overview discussion

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if they're just airing the first round on ESPN2? Or are they airing multiple rounds?

My understanding is that they are going to air R1 and the supplemental as well, so we won't 'see' the 2nd>.

I took off 1/2 day, I knew I'd need it if we select a pitcher at #4. Looking forward to all the info and reactions on thursday. THANKS, TO tony and gregg for all the info and access.

After all the analysis... after all the discussions... and after all the polls, mock drafts, occassionally heated exchanges and well, fun :)... the one thing I feel sure about is that we will be adding one fine young man into our organization[/U]. :clap:

Wow. Only one fine young man. I was hoping we could do a little better with our first 50 or so picks.:D

:laughlol: Yeah, well one fine player every year will be more than fine with me, but then we'll get even better players in each subsequent round. :D

Here's how we'll handle this year's coverage on the message board:

First, we'll have a general discussion thread during the draft which will be this thread.

For every Orioles pick, an individual thread will be given to that player where everyone can do their magic and research the heck of the guy.

Opinions, information, links, pictures, videos, it's all fair game in the player's draft thread.

This will be a great way to gather all the information available about the Orioles new draft picks....

I plan on being at the Camden Yards for the draft and will post comments from Jordan and MacPhail in these threads...

I'll be posting a front page draft coverage notice that will point to this forum.

Let's have fun with this. I know I'm looking forward to watching the poer of the Hangout community shine.

So who's taking off work??? :D

Who actually works??? Suckers! ;)

Based on polls and such, here's a question that would send the Hangout into a frenetic panic!...

What if TBeck, Alvarez and Smoak are off the board when we pick... who do we pick? :eektf: :D

Hosmer....

Everyone know's that Hosmer is my #1 guy, so that's how I'd go... but what's really interesting is how the Hangout would react, and who the consensus guy would be. Matusz, Posey, Hosmer, GBeck?

It would come down to Matusz vs. Hosmer. I think most people recognize that GBeckham has holes in his swing and no one really wants to go near Posey.

I dont have to leave for work until 3:30 pm tomorrow so I am excited to get to see the first 10 picks or so.

Matusz appears to be our pick at this juncture. Every major site is saying it, however, never say never. :)

Is every major site getting direct info from Jordan? I'm still not sold on taking a SP with the 1st pick when we need positional talent.

Smoak is who we need if Alvarez isn't there at #4.

But the whole thing is available on MLBTV.
