You can back out now.

Why should he back out?   Not like the Ironbirds will be playing this season.

"I mean the guy can just flat out hit," MLB Network's Dan O'Dowd said. "I mean, these guys will tell you that. I wonder if the season wasn't interrupted if we were seeing kind of a JJ Bleday breakout year. He had six home runs in six in 16 games, his stat line was ridiculous. He led Team USA in hitting this summer, he started to cut down on strikeouts, which were a criticism a year ago and he's improved a tremendous amount defensively. So, he's a very very special bat. He gets his bat in position to swing on a consistent basis."

(I'm going to keep reading positive articles about HK until I don't feel so depressed.)

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.

30 tonight and 39 tomorrow.

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.
