Draft Order 2021

Recommended Posts

What I would have done is projected this year’s record out to 162 games (including decimal points), and then weighted it equally with last year’s record.   So for example if the O’s finish 26-34, that would project out to 70.2 wins over 162 games.    Add their 54 wins from 2019 for a total of 124.2.    

I think that would have avoided giving sole weight to a short season that may have had some fluky results, while at the same time not putting undue weight on 2019 (which would count 2.7 times as much if you just added the two seasons together).   I do think this year’s results ought to have at least equal weight with any past results.

Obviously I’m biased but if this happens it is just stupid. They should have at least weighed the last 2 seasons equally.

Frobby’s formula makes a lot of sense.

My idea was more simplistic: Take the order of finish from this year and from last year then tally the placements. Example for Orioles: 29 last year plus ?23? this year totals 52, which probably translates to 25th or 26th or something. Senators finished ?5? last year and ?26? this year for a total of 31, which might translate to 13th or so. Not sure whether it would be much different from Frobby's order. But I guess we won;t need to bother doing the math on this at the end of the season,

I'm assuming we'll be picking anywhere between 5th and 8th.

But it sucks because the Sox are picking in the top 3.

And last year's World Series champion picking 6th.

Maybe they will screw up and take the ninth ranked guy second overall?

We can fix that the next 3 nights! 🧙‍♀️

Probably would be very similar.

Maybe just base the ranking upon each teams last 162 regular season games.   Of course the Nats would be hurt since they got off to a bad start in 2019 until Gerardo Parra brought in the “Baby Shark”.

Please stop, this has been a dead horse for months. FTR I agree with you but it will be a few years before we know the result.

I am calm, which is unusual after a political discussion with my Millennial son and 3 glasses of red. You didn't use green font so I was addled, yeah that's the ticket!!! 😀

It isn't an official board rule or anything and if I'm on mobile I generally don't bother.

    • I don't know what to say without seeing him, but I doubt he is protected. And even if he is picked, I doubt he would stick for the entire year. That said, if he really has turned some corners, then there is room. It may be at the expense of another prospect, though. 
    • Not sure if this was posted elsewhere, but I didn’t see it. Was two weeks before this thread.  
    • And the Rays announcers are really good. Much better than the buffoons who chatter during Os games
    • This is a really gripping series. I’ve never been so engaged by two teams I don’t really care about... although I want the Rays to win, of course. The Dodgers and Nats are the evil children of the NL.
    • It is in the last 30 seconds of this 50-minute podcast, but FWIW they had the Hartford (Rockies AA) play by play guy as a guest Nevin expert, and skimming Vavra at the end he said he thought Vavra would have had a good chance to make the Yard Goats this year (i.e., do the Low-A to AA double bump in 2020). The other Nevin nuggets were August 2019 Eastern League Player of the Month, and giving the near 1B only 2019 positional context as in part being driven by having Colton Welker as a teammate.    
    • Nice to hear the tidbits on Baumler from the Instructional League.  I know folks are going to point out the nature of what is reported is overwhelmingly positive, and they are right, of course.  Still, this last draft was performed with heavy analytics and without in person or in competition video for the spring 2020 season in college and HS baseball and without in-person workouts.  IMO, the positive comments are an early vindication of our draft strategy and the two HS prospects we invested big $ in with the expectation that they were essentially second or third round talents.  The early word from various quotes from Matt Blood is that Mayo and Baumler are who we thought/hoped they were or better. 
    • I don't see him getting picked.  Do we have the space on the 40 man for him?
