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

Recommended Posts

Not top 200 on BA, not that means too much.  So we are going to spend half our allotment?

We pick some outfielder out of Tulane, the next pick is a kid who is a 6'6 lefty that fell due to injury concerns and wants to be the next Kershaw.

I hate everyone.

Looks like it is either that or we are drastically overpaying our first round pick.

Hudson Haskin.  College Outfielder.  Looks like we are really looking for college power guys.  We either aren't looking over-slot at all or we think some will drop to later rounds.  Surprising.

Glad we can overpay for our first round pick not named Austin Martin!

I thought 20k was the max for any non-draftee.  Correct me if I’m wrong, please!

That was the joke.

Well looks like we’re going under-slot every pick. Pathetic.

Really leverages having the largest pool.

You simply cannot justify these decisions. We've come away with guys that were rated lower than the picks we made three times in a row. Two outfielders when we have a glut of them already, and a shortstop who has a decent ceiling but a low floor. No pitching with a lot of guys left who we could have spent that overslot money on. Elias messed this draft up big time. Inexcusable decision making is being kind.

Law had him at 51 but sounds kinda Joey Rickard to me

"If he can handle center field, he’s got a chance to be an above-average regular even without average power; if not, he might be a quality fourth outfielder who plays all three spots but doesn’t quite have the thump to be a regular in a corner."

Let's just say this isn't a traditional scouting draft class. Obviously there's stuff that we don't know about.

Made me think of Fiorentino, myself.  Again, just a guess since I have no idea who this is.

    • 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?
