You are stretching so far to prove something that doesn't exist. 

You are the expert on doing that here at OH, so you probably have a point.

What?

As I've said, if you seriously think these comps that draft analysts are throwing out means they think they'll be who they're referencing I'm not sure what to say...they clearly aren't.

They just try to give comparable notable players the general fans know about that have a similar style of game+build. You really think Callis is saying Baumler is gonna be Greinke?

Saying that someone is more athletic than another player doesn't necessarily mean they are a better prospect. 

I gave you the :laugh: emoji just in hopes of someone giving you the :googly-eyed confused: emoji. It would give you a poker flush of reactions.

According to the Des Moines Register, Baumler turned down two teams' offers before the Orioles picked him.

Orioles fifth-round selection Carter Baumler has plans to sign with Baltimore, per Jon Meoli of the Baltimore Sun. Baumler is a 6’2″ right-handed pitcher hailing from Dowling Catholic High School in Iowa. The 133rd overall pick of the draft carries a slot value of $422.3K. Though the financial details of Baumler’s signing haven’t been released, some of the particulars behind his thinking are laid out by Tommy Birch of the Des Moines Register. According to Birch, Baumler turned down two other teams before agreeing to sign with the Orioles. Had he not received an offer to his liking, Baumler was ready to play college ball for Texas Christian.

PA is scheduling the labrum MRI as we speak.

We don't want him to be too good at basketball.  Though I think it's very cool that Pat Connaughton could win a world championship with the Milwaukee Bucks.

Is it fair to say that the O's top pick can't be fairly evaluated without taking their 4th and 5th picks into the equation?

I’d definitely say that.    That was the whole point of the move.     

Now of course, you can argue about whether Kjerstad was the right guy if we wanted to go underslot, and how much of a drop-off there is between Martin and Kjerstad.   For example, Fangraphs rates both players as a 50 FV and has Kjerstad ranked 7th.     Other sources ranked him lower.   Perhaps the Orioles rank him higher.

What's going on here? Why has this guy not been announced? 

Apparently it’s because he hasn’t been able to get to Baltimore yet to take his physical. Supposedly that will happen either this week or next week, according to Tommy Birch, who is a local sportswriter in Des Moines, Iowa and is in the know.  Nothing to worry about.  He’s going to sign, unless of course the physical goes poorly.  But let’s think positively!
