This is the type of pick that either makes you look really bad or really good.

Aren't.... they all like that?

Nope.

If you take the safe pick you are pretty much secure no matter what happens.

You go overslot at 39 for a kid ranked 100 it's a different situation.

Sorry did I just add something to the conversation?  Apologies.

Either they make it or they don't. Sure a pick is more justified than another, but Rowell was a justified pick at the time and how do we think of that now? We think it was a terrible pick that made the O's look stupid.

Lol that's rich considering some of the stuff I've seen you say.

I don't think CoC gets personal.  He'll call a thought or idea stupid or dumb...but he's not talking about your mother.

Sure but a Rowell pick isn't going to do the damage to your reputation that a Hobgood is going to.

Maybe we can grab Wilcox at 74?  I shouldn’t get my hopes up.

We can hope.

I'm worried about the Dodgers at #66.  They just took a 5th year senior, so they may be able to pay quite a bit to an over-slot guy.

Everyone liked Rowell.  And for a year or two there, he looked like he was legit and then it all went off the rails.  But I remember this board being enamored with him when he put up his stats in his first year.

I really wonder what that guy is up to these days.  He seems to have vanished off the face of the earth.

Dodgers seem to covet pitching, I can see that.

OK, we made it past the Dodgers.  I've got my fingers crossed!  Of course, we don't really know if Wilcox is even on Elias' radar.

Quick, hack Elias' radar and make Wilcox a subpar college outfielder.

It's just years and years of hearing the same posts from you nearly 24/7 365. You spend a LOT of time on here just sniping and picking at other posters or the organization without really adding much to the conversation. You've been here for like a decade doing this daily. Doesn't it get old?

Why don't just f-in drop it man.

    • Poor Frobby.  lol Some of you guys read too much into the simplest little things.
    • Where have you been? Our catchers hit better than the typical catcher, but they defend lousy.
    • B. IMO, these rankings have been revolving around potential, mostly.  And if people want to weigh the grades towards potential, that's fine but it usually doesn't take into account that the potential might not pan out.  Adley is a great prospect and if you're going to bet on someone, you should bet on him but there's still a chance he could not be the all-world catcher that we're hoping for.  And the B is because of Adley, not because I'm enthralled with what we currently have. Severino and Sisco are decent (not great) hitting catchers.  After his red hot start to 2020, Severino came back down to earth pretty quickly, his OPS+ didn't crack 100.  I love Sisco's plate discipline, his separation between his batting average and on base percentage is pretty absurd but I'm not sure if hell ever hit above .250.  If he did, his on base percentage could end up over .400.  His OPS+ this year was 105. Both of these guys have average defense, at best.   I'm not sure if SG's claim of having the best catching situation in the sport is accurate as I'm not up to date on what other franchise situations look like.  But when you have a top 5 prospect at catcher, you can probably be in the conversation, so I'll go along and agree with him.  But again, if you're going to give out grades for untapped potential, you also need to take into account that these guys might not work out.
    • I feel like it is really tough to evaluate the future of a bullpen just because of the unknowns. Who really knows what flawed starter will be thrown to the bullpen and be a stud....I don’t think anyone saw Zach Britton coming. I guess the good news is that when you have the depth the Os are growing, it gives a decent indication that there can be impact arms in the pen.
    • I understand the OP grade of an A, but I would imagine that grade takes into account what our organization was as much as what it currently is. If you compare it to our history, I would agree with the A grade. But comparing to other organizations, I would think a B is probably more realistic. I say this having done zero research to support this comment. Either way, I am happy with the state of the pitching, and think next year will be a big one to see what we actually have.
    • Depth drove that one.  We have the best catching prospect, but not much depth.  Knock on wood, Adley gets hurt/doesn't perform, our grade would drop tremendously.
