No one thought he would still be there at 4. Yet here we are.

Now Martin can make the Orioles pay

Keith Law thinks the Orioles are trying to get Nick Bitsko at 30

Keith Law can go piss up a rope.  That'll be nice if it happens but so much can happen between now and then.

NSFW of course.

If they were going underslot, I was hoping for Gonzales.  

Oh well.

So do they pick 30 and 39 tonight?  Or do I have to wait for tomorrow night for additional dissappointment?

I'm disgusted by this pick. You have the most money to spend, have a chance to get a guy like Martin, or even a top pitcher, and you get a guy that has questionable plate discipline, and doesn't fill a position of need. Elias tried to out think everyone and if signability was an issue there were still better picks. Why try to get the best available at 30 by missing out on any number of consensus picks that were rated higher? 

Nobody should like this pick.

Austin Martin has the hair of a douchebag.  Now since he's playing for Toronto I have to hate him and look for every reason to do so.  He's rapidly approaching Dustin Pedroia levels of annoyingness.  

Also because I'm pretty sure Elias just botched this.

Good lord, the overreaction theater here. You’d think we passed on a Harper or Strasburg level slam dunk. Spoilers: we didn’t. Everyone take a breath.

No, we just passed on a guy with a 70 hit tool and plate discipline.  Something this organization lacks.

    • Not a close call for me.   Keep Cruz, let Davis walk.    Per Fangraphs, Cruz was worth $125.7 mm in his four years with the Mariners, at a cost of $57 mm.  Surplus = $68.7 mm Davis has been worth -$19.1 mm at a cost of $90.5 mm.  Deficit = $109.6 mm so far.   Two more years to add to that deficit. And, we wouldn’t need to hear about it every damned day.    
    • But not everyone will get vaccinated.  We don’t all get vaccinated for the flu.  I know I’m taking this vaccine. Its never going to end.  It will just keep mutating.  It’s here forever.
    • I guess after we are all vaccinated and take responsibility for not spreading the remnants of the virus that make it through the eye of that needle. 
    • Lots of complications in these cases, per the article: At least one of those minor league cases, filed in Arizona and led by the Chattanooga Lookouts, has already been dismissed due to a virus exclusion in the policy. Insurers in many cases have insisted that financial losses caused by the coronavirus do not constitute physical loss or property damage. MLB is claiming the virus has led to both. “The presence of the coronavirus and COVID-19, including but not limited to coronavirus droplets or nuclei on solid surfaces and in the air at insured property, has caused and will continue to cause direct physical damage to physical property and ambient air at the premises,” the suit says. “Coronavirus, a physical substance, has attached and adhered to Plaintiffs’ property and by doing so, altered that property. Such presence has also directly resulted in loss of use of those facilities.” === Honestly, if that’s the best argument MLB has got, as a lawyer I’d rather have the defense side of this case.    But, it will probably take a year to shake out.     
    • Would Elias spend 4/40m on Kim when Henderson could be ready for the majors in 2 years?
    • The insurers did not pay.
