I'm just done.  I hate this.  

I can't look away.

I'm still holding out for the overslot pitching!

You know I'm an optimist at heart.

I have to laugh to stop from yelling and scaring my son. Unbelievable how bad this draft is. F is the only appropriate grade. 

I really don't want to hear about "well, we have to wait to see how it pans out". Every single pick has been someone where many better choices were available. We have no pitching depth at all, and we haven't chosen a single pitcher. We now have tons of shortstops and outfielders. The last two picks have been 30-35 spots higher than projected, so no need to go overslot. We had the most money, and likely won't spend it all. If we do spend it all, it's because we drastically overpaid. Absolute, abject disaster of a draft.

I guess Kjerstad is getting slot and Haskin overslot?

They might have to take out a loan.

Close.  His grandfather played for the O’s.

Darn.

That would have been a solid longshot to come in.

I went to one of the Orioles Caravans and Tim Cossins said the pitching is coming. Perhaps Elias really likes what we have.

But you always need more.

Yes. As I read years ago a quote from Don Fehr- paraphrasing , two things are always true, teams never have enough pitching and never make any money.

The problem with the grow the bats with this draft, is that there are major questions about every pick (outside 1st pick) whether the bat will play in the Majors.  Every pick is Cadyn Grenier
