What are you looking for from the rest of the season?

Four gets you Gausman, two gets you Machado.

But seriously, it depends on the year. 1-1 this year got us a guy who was considered head and shoulders above the rest. I'm no draft expert but people are saying next year is more muddled. No clear favorite. So 1-4 might work out fine.

Also number 1-25 got you Mike Trout in 2009. The MLB draft is very different than the NBA and NFL and is far from an exact science. Going 1-1 in the NBA and NFL usually means you should be an all pro level player. That can't be said about the MLB draft.

Wouldn't mind seeing a guy like Gausman come through the minors with Elias' development team

But I'd rather have a Machado.

Said it before, and I'll say it again.   I would immediately like to see an outfield of Stewart, Hays, and Santander.    I would release Chris Davis and make Mancini the permanent first basemen, with Nunez as the full-time DH.  

Like others have stated, I'd like to see the continued development of guys like Hall, Rodriguez, , etc.

I definitely do NOT want to see this team tank the rest of the season.   We will still be in the top 3 or 4 picks in the draft, and I'm OK with that.   I actually like watching this team now.   Also, a strong output by Givens, Bundy, Villar and Mancini could make them movable in the offseason. 

 

 

 

I wouldn't be so sure. Detroit, KC, and Toronto are really bad. And you can never count Miami out. Ideally, I'd like us to win as many games as possible, but I respect everyone's focus on the long view; I'd be content with a top-5 selection if it came down to that. 

Agree with much of this post, BTW; I'm interested in seeing likewise for the most part. That said, I know many have had it with Chris, but I'm not one of them. I'll stay hoping that the light comes back on, even if it's now 75 watts and no longer 100. He's flickered at times this season, for sure. 

I also hope for strong finishes by the latter four players mentioned, although for me, it's so that they can finish on a high note and possibly gain just that much more of a confidence boost heading into '20, not to trade any of them.

But again, I know it's about the big picture and my head often needs to remind my heart of that. (I still adamantly don't want us to deal Trey, though.)

You could name about 6 pitchers you wish that for...

Lose less than 100 games. I think we have to go about .500 the rest of the way to avoid it

27-28

It's crazy how much optimism I have for the team. My hopes are similar to a lot of the other posters. If we ever start doing well with a lot of homegrown talent I will be thrilled. If the pitching develops at all I think we win 70 games next year which would be a huge jump.

Machado went third.    Two gets you Jameson Taillon.

If you picked second that year you could have had Machado.

O's have never picked second so I didn't have an Oriole example to use.

Well, I agree with the point that there are better odds of making a good pick at no. 2 vs. no. 4.

No. 2: 46 out of 55 have made the majors; 708 WAR total.

No. 4: 44 out of 55 have made the majors; 572 WAR total.

I want as many guys as possible to have a chance and I want the guys who’ve already had a chance and shown no progress to go away.

I want to see the lineup below on OD, so I want the stuff that has to go right to make that happen. 

Means, Bundy, Cobb, Wojo, Akin

Givens, Armstrong, Fry, Harvey, Tate, Scott, Bleier, Brooks/Eshelman/Yac/Hess

I want to see our young relievers given a chance in classic reliever roles.  So we need an 8 man pen with milb vet SP types to be shuttled up/down all year to take the beatings.

Villar SS, Mancini LF, Santander RF, Nunez DH, Mountcastle 1B, Sisco/Severino C, Alberto 2B, Peterson 3B, Hays CF

Sisco/Severino, Wilkerson, Smith/Stewart

I think that’s an above average offense in MLB. Below average defensively. Below average rotation. Bullpen has potential to be average, if workload isn’t too much. 

Maybe a 60-65 win team?

    • Yeah, It was and we got unlucky not to win a WS with it.   Thinking back Bonilla (mostly) and his agent were masterful in ensuring he’d have an income most of the rest of his life. $1 million until 2035 by the Mets was masterful. Hard to believe the Mets would agree to it.    Getting paid $34 million and for 34 years after his retirement. I know deferred money is more common now. But, Bobby was ahead of the curve. Also, $1 million was more in 2001 than it is in today’s game. The other $500,000 partially from us until 2023 was also an extra 24 years of income.
    • And you know this how? I ask because I’m a restaurant guy that was in the process of buying/opening a restaurant in Westminster when the pandemic hit in March. My initial thought was on crabs (AUCE) and full service options for breakfast through dinner.    I spoke to several distributors and most of the crabs and crabmeat is from Louisiana and Texas. Here Maryland/Virginia product is mixed in during the season. In bulk, the Louisiana stuff is very affordable even for Jumbo Lump.    FYI, G&M and Timbuktu were owned by the same family for a considerable amount of years. I can’t say that I know if they still are but any change would’ve been in the last couple of years. Speaking of foreign crab meat, It’s Phillips that uses crab meat from a cove they created in Indonesia. They transported Blue Crab from here to there and it’s essentially farm raised, fed fish local to that area, and tastes off IMO. @CarrRun49 You can almost always get Backfin at Giant for around $12. It’s from South America, Peru as I recall. Which is much better than making it out of canned Salmon. The thought of that makes me want to 🤮  I think I’d rather not have them
    • Thank you for the video. I generally “scout” high school players and really hadn’t watched that much of him but he really has a sweet swing. His outfield play isn’t amazing but much better than we have marched out their since Markakis wasn’t resigned. Man that is a great swing!  I know I have said this before, but I was told 15-20 years ago that when you draft, you don’t want the 16 year old with a full beard because he is already peaking maturely but a 20 year old that can’t grow a beard has more to grow into. Not every gm goes with that, but this kid looks like a kid and has room to grow. Also with that logic, they haven’t peaked performance wise.  Physically I can see him turning into a Manny Ramirez body type(let’s hope he has that kind of career without whatever). Also why I like Rutschman, baby face with room to mature into a projectable body type. He reminds me of a Buster Posey at the same age.  Great job on this pick. I was never sold on Martin or Torkleson  (If any Os exects want to employ me, reach out and send me to Cuba!)😉
    • Every time I hear Crab cakes I think about Koco's Pub. Really miss those.
    • Sadly, Timbuktu no longer uses blue crab meat either. More flavorless Asian  crab. Sure makes for tremendous profit margin when you can fool consumers.
