Draft Order 2021

Recommended Posts

Moved up another notch with tonight's loss combined with Kansas City's victory over St. Louis. We now own the sixth pick. A loss in the finale against Boston moves us up to at least fifth, ahead of the Red Sox. Victories by Detroit and Arizona would move us up to the third pick. I hate seeing us lose but it's intriguing to know we can possibly leap from the eighth pick to the third pick in one three game series.

Having our choice of the HS bats (or one of the Vandy pitchers if 1 or 2 passes) is a good spot to be in for this upcoming draft, based on what we know right now.

With two games to play, the Orioles could still end up picking anywhere from 3rd to 10th. To pick 3rd they would have to lose their final two games while Boston and Detroit win their final two games and Washington wins one of their final three games. We currently have the sixth pick as we jumped Arizona yesterday to move up from seventh. If we were to win our final two games we could drop to 10th with one win by Arizona and two wins by Kansas City, Colorado, and Seattle.

I think you mean two losses.

Thanks for this.    We’ll be somewhere in the top 10 no matter what happens, so that’s good.   That’s quite a lot of room to move one way or the other in two games.

Detroit has a 2 game lead on us and the only team to win a tiebreaker based on last years record.  So I'm pretty sure 4th is the highest option now.

Sitting at 6th.  I think nats get 1 more at least and think 5th is looking fairly likely.

The Tigers may have Cardinals makeups Monday.  A doubleheader could be scheduled, though I wonder how squishy Game 2 could get if Game 1 does something to clarify the NL playoff picture.

Looks like we have never had the 6th pick.  Lots in the 3-9 range 2001-2012

3 = Machado

4 = Loewen, Matusz, Bundy, Gausman

5 = Wieters, Hobgood (10th biggest bonus precisely $2000 ahead of Mike Minor)

7 = Smith, Markakis

8 = Townsend

9 = Rowell

In my humble opinion, a top 7 pick this year is as good as our number 2 options last year.  I am not a huge fan of taking college pitchers number 1, but Rocker is a clear number 1 guy.  

I am really high on Tyree Reed and Chase Petty. Chase Petty is Dylan Bundy but think Dylan Bundy at the draft and not post multiple injuries.

That worthless win against Boston the other day is going to prove costly.

With who is playing who, I think it'll be one position, but I guess we'll see.

Yea, I would guess our best hope is getting to 5th.  Probably not enough will fall our way to get to 3rd.

    • Boy that's hard. Machado might cause us to win a World Series. Would have liked to have Weiters and Davis that postseason. We definitely would have won then I believe
    • Mejia is essentially Richie Martin.  I do like the idea of picking up Robertson and/or Adeiny Hechavarria. Going into camp with Martin, Valaika, Sanchez, Ruiz, Urias, and one or both of Robertson/Hechavarria should get us through the season.  We also have Stevie Wilkerson back in AAA,  and I suppose Bannon and McCoy are of that age of do or die; so they could get a shot. If the O's can spend 40 million over 4 years on the Korean SS Kim and spread the cash 3, 7, 10, 20 to alleviate the bill while we shed Cobb and Davis (would back loading it be attractive to a FA since Covid my cut into salaries again?).  I think its a good gamble because we are starting to build enough young SS depth in the system, yet it probably won't be truly developed for another 3 to 5 years.  When Kim's contract would be up, we would hopefully have a couple options ready in AAA/AA ready to go. Signing Kim would allow use to take a chance at being competitive in 2022 and 2023 while we wait for the our next star SS to develop for the long haul. If they go big and sign Kim, I would go with Sanchez at 2B and let Valaika, Ruiz, Martin, and Urias battle it out for 3B and a utility role or two.  You could still sign one of Robertson/Hechavarria to come in for that roster battle.  In the end, if you could space out Kim's contract, the next two seasons could still be fairly cost effective.  You are taking the risk on years 3 and 4.  If Kim ends up flopping that 20 million in year 4 would be a bummer, but at least the last few years of Davis and Cobb have softened that potential blow a little bit.  If we strike gold on Kim and our young pitching and position players start blossoming, it could get exciting by next season, which would be 2 years early based on my initial predictions with the rebuild.
    • I dont know about you all, but watching the stars of my youth playing out their careers while being an embarrassment to the game is absolutely heartbreaking to me.  I like how football does contracts with a portion being guaranteed and a portion, typically the last year or two not guaranteed.  Football contracts are typically much shorter.  I think it’s partially steroid related, but these baseball players seems to hit a cliff in their low 30s now.  Obviously this isn’t true for all players, but these massive contracts seem terrible for the game.     any thoughts on how to make baseball contracts better? The obvious answer would be to not give out foolish contracts, but that always happens as gms are understandably short sighted.  
    • Another gem.   Love hearing these stories of how it was in the old days.     https://blogs.fangraphs.com/a-conversation-with-1960s-slugger-jim-gentile-part-one/ https://blogs.fangraphs.com/a-conversation-with-1960s-slugger-jim-gentile-part-two/
    • Hope you are right.  Elias would probably go that high and Galvis would be a good defensive SS to have as an Oriole.
    • I’m going to guess that he will be lucky to get 2.5M this year and I would think that number will be high.
