Great interview by Nate Ruiz with Brad Ciolek about our draft in the Sun:   https://www.baltimoresun.com/sports/orioles/bs-sp-orioles-mlb-draft-new-regime20190605-story.html

Excellent article, it's funny that Kyle Martin was one of those guys, I actually picked up on Martin mid-spring as a statistically interesting reliever and then watched 5-6 innings of him pitching, before determining he wasn't really a top 10 round guy, more deception than stuff.

Any thoughts on who will likely be the hardest draftees to sign?

Henderson seems like the tough sign. You’d think they’d have a number that they are comfortable with on him picking him that highly, but it’s possible he fell and they were just like hey, we’ll pick him and make him turn down 3M. 

But in the end I expect him to sign, like 95%+.

Hernaiz wants to sign. The other top ten round guys are juniors or seniors they’ll sign.

The late round preps won’t sign unless something goes wrong with Henderson and they throw the overslot targeted at him to one of the other guys. 

The only guy who seems like he might be a 50/50 shot type is 24th round pick Andrew Martinez. He’s a Sophomore but almost 22, he’s actually a fairly interesting prospect, he’ll probably need some overslot.

Good stuff.  And from quotes I've seen from Henderson from before the draft, he is lazer focused on doing whatever gets him to the majors quickest - and presumably that's playing pro baseball asap.

If anyone's interested in seeing three of the top 12 picks, this game from the NCAA Regionals was just posted. Playing for Stanford are Kyle Stowers (our 2nd Round Competitive Balance-B pick at #71), Maverick Handley (6th round, #168), and Andrew Daschbach (11th round, #318 pick). 

Throughout the game, the athleticism of Stowers and skills at 1B for Daschbach show up, and the announcers (JT Snow and Sam Ravech, ESPN) repeatedly remark upon Handley's ability to receive the ball/frame pitches (in particular how he helps out the true freshman starter).

    • Bad move and I am not going to be excited about it! I gave a list in my last posts of guys they could've taken a shot on in the rule 5. Obviously some of them aren't ready but who cares. They would've saved around 1 million dollars and as long as his glove plays who cares if you are signing a guy that going to get on base as such a low percentage anyway. I honestly thought Elias would move away from the low OBP guys that have been a staple of Orioles baseball for a long time. I understand trading Iglesias for resources ....But I don't see how signing this guy does anything but cost extra money that the Orioles are showing signs of financial distress.
    • I said I was exaggerating! I'm not incorrect in saying that this move is "Dumpster Diving" or the Bottom of Bargain Bin signing! And as @Tony-OH said they could've just gave the at bats to Martin or someone else that we have playing for the minimum. Or draft a guy in the rule 5 that perhaps has a future in MLB baseball. Like Lenyn Sosa, SS, Alfredo Rodriguez, SS , Wenceel Perez, SS , Livan Soto, SS , Leonardo Rivas, SS , Omar Estevez, 2B/SS,  Wander Javier, SS , Arquimedes Gamboa SS, Jordy Barley SS, Kevin Smith SS/3B Players that I highlighted 1) Wander Javier 60 ARM/60 GLOVE 2) Livan Soto   55 ARM/ 60 GLOVE /50 HIT 3) Leonardo Rivas 60 ARM/60 GLOVE/55 HIT (***BB PROSPECTUS 2020) 4) Arquimedes Gamboa 60 ARM/60 GLOVE /60 RUN 5) Jordy Barley 60 ARM/ 55 GLOVE/60RUN 6) Kevin Smith  60 ARM/ 55 GLOVE https://www.mlb.com/news/rule-5-draft-eligible-prospects-2020   AND DONT BE A TROLL!!  
    • Me either, but apparently they believe Galvis is a significantly better player then he's been over the last few years offensively and the major drop off last year defensively was apparently an aberration, because players normally get better at 31.  I don't hate this move, I just don't see what it does all that much. I think they could have player Sanchez at SS and probably gotten the same defense and allowed Valaika or Urias to play 2B every day to see what they have. But hey, why not bring in a 31-year old with bad defensive numbers last year and well below average stick?
    • I just dont understand why anyone would be excited about this move.
    • It was his first year back calling games in 2020 and unless Garceau started cursing during broadcasts last year, he was always going to be in the fold. 
    • We won 14 games last year and 11 games this year doing exactly what I'm saying, and Lamar won an MVP for it last year.  Brees won 12 games this year without really throwing downfield, including beating the bucs twice in the regular season.  Manning won a super bowl in 2016 without being able to throw it deep.  So no, I'm not wrong.  If you don't think Lamar specifically can succeed with midrange passes then I'd like to know why.  But there are plenty of examples of successful QBs within the past 5 years that didn't rely on deep balls.
