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

Recommended Posts

This weekend was a perfect example of why the O's are strong favorites to be the #1 overall pick again next year. Even if we play well and promote some better players, we still have a crazy hard AL East schedule. Our best can be beaten down by 3 of the 4 other teams. They've got Minnesota, who looks legit, and Cleveland who's been hovering just above .500 most of the year.

This. The Yankees sent down a guy that would probably be our best player.

Orioles lose and Royals win, so we now have a three game lead on KC.

Even though the O's had the worst record in the game last year I never had the feeling that we were really the worst team, just that day in day out we had the stiffest competition (due to the MLB unbalanced schedule). This year I think it's pretty clear that we are absolutely the worst team in baseball.

The Orioles are definitely lowering to the challenge. Doesn’t sound good. Falling to the challenge?

Detroit is almost as bad as us. I think we're lucky we have a 6.5 game "lead" on them for the first pick. They're terrible.

Orioles and Royals won last night, Tigers lost. So I think they are 3 and 4 games behind, respectively.

    • Yea, no matter how the rest turn out, barring of course some kid's whose name I don't know turning into an all-star catcher, AR bombing will still be a big blow. Even if we end up with a playoff team, losing out on an MVP candidate at catcher is still going to hurt.

    • These threads are about the strengths of the organization as a whole at the various positions, not the current strength of the major league team.   I agree grades should not be “completely” based on players in the minors, especially ones who haven’t played an official game above low A.    But the guy was considered to be the easiest 1:1 choice since Harper.    That’s not nothing.  
    • There's the matter of being the 21st pick and not 3rd, but if DL Hall could be in the ballpark of where Ian Anderson is now in a year, that would be nice. Scanning the 2017 1st round if we re-did it today, I see Lewis, Gore, Hiura, Adell, Ramos and Pearson as guys you'd probably obviously prefer to him. Hall head to head with the Shane Bazzes and Clarke Schmidts of the world will tell us a good deal of high in the league the peak Rutschman teams can get.
    • All hands on deck for the little guy. Wonder if Dan will be watching?
