O's 2020 MLB Draft Chat: Picking #2/30/39/74

Recommended Posts

When I think of Martin's comp, I think it is more to the hitting profile of Nick Markakis - strong contact, strong strike zone control, not too many HRs, better overall speed and baserunner.

For me it's a tossup between Martin and Lacy, but I lean more towards Lacy, even his name sounds like an elite player. But if we end up picking Martin I won't be mad.

Interesting that they have Sabato at 14 - very high, as well with Ed Howard at 10.  They also have Cecconi to the Twins as does other sources.  They have some slippage with Garrett Mitchell going to the LAD.

Quite a run of guys I really like starting with our taking Lange as Mlodzinski, Shuster, Beeter, Miller, Walker and Witt follow with six of the next seven picks.  

Trying to think who that would leave for us at 39 - Ginn, Fulton, Westburg, Carson Montgomery among others.  I really like these college pitchers Mlodzinski, Shuster, Better, Miller and might prefer taking one of them and then seeing which HSer is left from among Montgomery, Lange and others.

I agree, though I think Martin will hit for more average and there's a chance for more power

That would throw a wrench into things

It would let us land Tork.  

I mean, if the Tigers wanna go with Lacy to match up with Mize, that's not hard to imagine.

 

And it's Tork...oh well.

I don't get why it's big news that they drafted him as a third baseman.  I mean, they can develop him anywhere they want to put him on the diamond.  He can end up at first base, too.

Now when the Nats selected Harper as an outfielder, that was noteworthy.
