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.

    • Very good game tonight. Both pens were real good. 
    • That fact that he pointed out Anthony Sanders and his race as being the one screwed also made me question it.
    • I'm surprised by this comment, Tony.  I'm not sure how you can blame Elias for Yaz coming out of nowhere to perform as he has for the Giants.  You really think there was reason to expect that Elias should have seen that coming?  Wow.
    • I’m guessing that a claim was probably filed against Elias and the Orioles for pension fraud (possibly by the agent of a coach on the staff that didn’t get the pension benefits), but since MLB approved Holt before the season as one of the 4 coaches designated to receive pension benefits, that’s why this is a non-story.  The quote from the MLB spokesperson said Holt received prior approval from the league and shared it with the MLBPA, so the only possible explanation is that the MLBPA is challenging Holt’s approval since he wasn’t a full-time uniformed coach this year, and that is likely what this botched article by Bill Madden is attempting to convey.  Even if a charge of pension fraud was filed by the MLBPA, or the agent of a coach separate from the MLBPA, it sounds like it’s dead in the water because MLB released a statement saying Holt was approved and there is no ongoing investigation that could result in discipline for Elias/Orioles.     Simply put, Bill Madden did a piss poor job of reporting this accurately, and tried to connect it with the Astros, which is why the article lead with “Ex-Astros” and “fraud” to get readers to click on it.  In reality, all Madden had to do is verify the story with MLB, like our local beat writers did, and he would have been told that this is a non-issue because Holt received prior authorization from the league to receive pension benefits, meaning this was not some covert, fraudulent attempt by Elias to get Holt on the pension plan without going through the proper approval process.  That’s why most of us thought from the very start that this story didn’t pass the smell test, and now we know we were proven correct in that assessment.
    • Journalism is a lost art nowadays in this day and age of blogging and tweeting.
    • I prefer Valaika as well. I don't think Wilkerson is a a good major league player, but as I said, he's a decent guy to have in the system. I think Urena will get first shot to stick as the everyday 2B, but Valaika could be in the running for sure. 
    • Elias has brought in different technologies that are supposedly used to help evaluate players as well as help them improve. They used those vests, those devices on the knobs of the bats and Statcast. What I'm saying is that Elias may want to take a look at what they missed with Yaz. Clearly his development or lack thereof was not on Elias' watch, but he brought in these technologies and they apparently did not indicate that Yaz had the potential to do what he's done. I also clearly stated that I never had Yaz on any of my lists so you can take the smart ass "What did you miss?" comment and keep it to yourself because that's disrespectful. I don't have nearly the access that the Orioles have on all of his data (Data was collected on AAA players in 2019 and available to the teams) so the question becomes, why did Yaz show nothing and then with some quick changes with SF coaches he becomes an impact player? If I'm Elias, I want to know the answer to that.  I also clearly showed that Elias's record of bringing in similar players to a Yaz has been pretty dismal.  When you take the two together, I think it's fair to ask the question what did they miss? If you don't fine, but at the end of the day, Elias gave away an impact player for nothing and has acquired none in two years. those are facts that can't be denied no matter how much you wanna wear orange colored glasses.
