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.

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,

Probably would be very similar.

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.

    • Trey is 10 months away from being eligible for free agency.   Here are a bunch of questions that he and the O's face: Can he stay well? Can he return to his 2019 production? Do the O's trade him? What is his trade value considering the extremes of the first two questions. Do the O's extend him? What kind  of a contract would he accept? Length? Incentive based? Do the O's wait until he is a free agent and then decide if they want to re-sign him? When are younger player(s) ready to take his spot? When does he get too expensive  considering the young players available? There seems to be a wide range of answers to these questions that Elias, Ownership,  Trey  and his agent need to address.   What is your take?
    • We have the #1 pick. I’m hoping the draft actually happens this offseason. It’s a nice way for us to add a top 30 organizational prospect for a minimal price. 
    • MLB pipeline had him as Boston’s #19 prospect in 2019. Seems like he might be a RH version of Alex Wells. Reyes might throw a bit harder at 88-92. Good milb depth to add. His scouting report from mlbpipeline after the 2019 season is below, Scouting grades: Fastball: 50 | Slider: 50 | Curveball: 45 | Changeup: 50 | Control: 60 | Overall: 40 Boston spent more than $146 million on its 2014 international class, including a $72.5 million contract for Rusney Castillo and a record $31.5 million bonus (plus a matching amount in penalty tax) for Yoan Moncada. Signed with no fanfare for $90,000 out of the Dominican Republic that July, Reyes has pounded the strike zone and dominated everywhere he has gone since. The low Class A South Atlantic League named him its pitcher of the year in 2018, when he ranked second in the Minors in WHIP (0.91), fourth in ERA (1.97) and K/BB ratio (7.6) and fifth in walk rate (1.1 per nine innings). Reyes derives his success from uncanny command, a knack for sequencing his pitches and deception. His fastball works from 88-92 mph with ordinary life, but plays better than its velocity because he uses his 6-foot-4 frame and high arm slot to create extension and downhill plane. His changeup is his most reliable secondary offering and his low-80s slider/cutter is more effective than his mid-70s curveball, which has shape but lacks power. Reyes has supreme pitchability but his body is fairly maxed out, so he probably won't throw much harder. He has little margin for error but rarely made mistakes while averaging 0.9 walks per nine innings during his first four pro seasons. While it's hard to give him a ceiling higher than a No. 5 starter, he's intelligent, determined and gets the most out of his ability.
    • And TJ McFarland, who has done quite well for himself.
    • How could you forget Joey Rickard. 
    • Rank every player in our minor league system from 1-150.  We got time.
