It's not surprising that the draft is looking different than many mock boards due to the lack of 2020 data to go off of due to the lack of games to evaluate.
Elias is clearly not afraid to go with a guy with one plus plus tool (power) which is a bit surprising for the #2 overall pick.

The O's female PBP announcer is awful. Look, I give props to anyone, albeit male or female, that is competent at their job but Melanie Newman is downright awful. So glad I will never hear Hunter utter again that some batter has a modest 2 game hitting streak and is 4 for his last 22. UGH!
