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.

    • o   Ryan Yarbrough )is the antithesis of his 2 teammates )(Tyler Glasnow and Blake Snell))in regard to Hit Batsmen ...... he led the Major Leagues in that category this past season, having plunked 7 opposing batters in only 55.67 Innings Pitched.

    • Yaz was the exact definition of filler.  
    • Well, if I may continue my musician comparison, I’ve had many students come to me with problems that the previous teacher had not solved. And I have solve those problems. So the question is why did not the previous teacher solve those problems? Again, it’s all water under the bridge, and there’s not really any reason to rehash It, but I stand by what I said, and I’m not the only person who thinks that way.
    • The non-tender deadline is going to be fun. I don’t know where we are in the waiver line, but that will be a fun time as well. regarding pitching, we should take a flier on Collin McHugh. He was injured this season, but he had signed with the Red Sox for only $800,000 or so, and risking that much isn’t unreasonable at all. havent checked to see which 3B guys might be available but it shouldn’t be too hard to find someone better than Ruiz.
    • Again, it wasn't a mistake. He learned something that made him better. I don't even think they taught him it. I think he learned it somewhere. The bloodlines were there, never the skills. He's Buster Douglas. Just a fluke and took advantage of the opportunity. 
    • I mostly agree with your posts. This one I don't. It's not lazy. It's insane what he has done. And really. It's not even that much.
