Orioles 2008 Draft coverage Overview discussion

Recommended Posts

Ahhh yeah... :( Me no have dat. :(:D

THey should just sell a day pass for $5. I bet they'd make a decent amount and it costs them nothing. They could limit it to Rouns 2 and up so as not to step on ESPNs toes.

Lucky me - I have Thursdays off every week and, well, work from home anyway, so I can watch whatever whenever :D You know I'll be watching!

Got a chance to get within a few feet of my "favorite Oriole" last weekend and could so easily have gotten his autograph on my Trembley/MacPhail visor if only I'd asked. Ah well. Got a photo of him, anyway.

I can't wait.

I think they'd have to see significant holes in the top-rated hitters in order to pick Matusz. Otherwise, they feel certain that big hitters are going to slip to the second and 3rd rounds.

I've never really been excited for a baseball draft before, but getting Weiters, etal last year has me geeked up. Go O's!!!! Get it done even better this year, Joe Jordan!!!!

Thanks. And I agree... consolidate the threads.. maybe put a lock on new thread creation and you can start the Pick threads and let us post in them.

Assuming Pittsburgh does what is expected and takes Alvarez, especially now that T.Beckham is gone, Kansas City becomes the wildcard at the top of the draft. Who will they take? I hope Matusz, just to eliminate the issue when it's our turn to draft. I personally want Hosmer or Smoak and hope Jordan doesn't have to choose between one of them and his top pitcher.

Hosmer appears to be the pick at #3 to KC.

Yeah, but that was before the D-Rays went with Beckham over Posey. With Posey still on the board, IMO the Royals will really think long and hard about choosing Posey over Hosmer.

Awhile back the Royals were also said to be high on Aaron Crow. With the MLB Draft, no one really knows until the pick is made.

I, for one, would not be shocked to see the Royals take Posey over Hosmer. I think it would be the right decision for them anyway.

I agree that Posey will be seriously discussed. However, I think Hosmer is the pick, and KAN will be thrilled to have him and Moustakas developing side-by-side.

Matusz looks bound for BAL and Posey to SFN. Skipworth to FLA, G-Bex to CIN, Smoak to CHA, Alonso to WAS and ??? to HOU? TEX should pony up for Crow.
