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

I get why people like Kjerstad, I just don't like him at #2.  Especially when it sounds like he's not a great defender, either.  The bat must be REALLY special.  Unfortunately we didn't get a whole season but if Elias and co. think that he's on the upswing, well, that's good.  

Maybe comping Hobgood off the bat was a bit extreme but in the moment it certainly felt like a slot savings move.

I can’t argue with any of that. I definitely think it’s a savings move to some extent, and it could be a significant savings move, depending on what Martin and Scotty B. wanted. We just have to see what happens with these next few picks. 

Its a risk for sure, but with the trajectory Kjerstad was on, I feel good about it.

Well, you've calmed me down some. I've gone from nuclear level mad to just pretty upset, lol. i just don't understand the risk of the strategy of saving money to potentially get guys that we like later in the draft, especially if we pick guys at 30 and 39 that we could have gotten there anyway without picking Kjerstad.

i'm outta rep for the day but, yes.  

Unfortunate that there's not going to be a minor league season this year, would really like to see him this summer to see if that trajectory kept going.

I'm sure we are going to hear great things about what he does at camp.

I get it. I think I’m just better with it because I wasn’t as high on Martin and was probably a little higher on Heston than others. It was the perfect storm. Haha.

For me, part of it was that Martin went to Toronto.  I'd probably care less if he went to Miami or something.

Oh definitely. I was pissed about that too.

Well, hope we weren't all in on Bitsko. 

Yeah.....  

This may really be a night to remember.
