2019 Draft Order Tracker

Recommended Posts

6. Race for the bottom

In my latest run of simulations, Kansas City finished with an average of 52.9 wins. Baltimore was at 53.1. During the 162-game era, only nine teams have won fewer than 53 games in a non-strike season. Aren't we lucky to have two "contenders" in the same season? The stakes here aren't nothing. My takeaway from reading the draft pundits on next year's class is that prep shortstop Bobby Witt Jr. has a shot to be a particularly special top pick.

Here is the thread I started that shares a number of articles, lists, podcasts, etc... that review the draft and it's top prospects>>>

So is there a clear number one in the draft?  Is this much ado about nothing?

No, there isn't a clear cut #1 guy at this point, but it's very early.  If we are choosing first, there will be some very good talent to choose from and historically the #1 pick outperforms all other picks. Plus, as Corn said, having the most slot money helps.

Pretty sure it’s also our turn to have our comp balance pick be after the 1st round and not the 2nd round this year. 

Pretty sure the O's had two first round picks in 2018, even if they did use the second one to draft a guy that should have gone in the second, maybe third round.
