Curious to see how fall Diaz keeps dropping.  He might land here, but I wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't. 

With mention of 4th outfielder potential and some glowing remarks for others, I went Lowther/Vavra.  The drop overall is interesting.

(FWIW I've been wrong pretty much every time, so what do I know...haha)

Yeah, I officially don't have a clue anymore. Every time I go with upside over current value, Tony goes the other way and vice versa. I guessed Lowther and Vavra since Vavra is more advanced than Mayo and plays up the middle, but it wouldn't shock me if Mayo is here. The 2020 draftees are getting ranked pretty high

Part of the problem is that it’s a game of “Guess What Tony Thinks.”  Nothing wrong with that.  But the question here isn’t what do you or I think?  I am pretty much in tune with Tony’s thinking 1-7.  From there on out it’s a crapshoot. Just glad the Orioles have much higher quality crap now!

Is it cheating to look a guy up? My instinct was Lowther because of what Tony said about Akin in the previous pairing, and Vavra, but I had to check out Vavra’s scouting report, and that sold me. He’s ahead of Diaz Because he’s advanced, younger than Diaz, and probably more versatile. 
Tony’s  philosophy is “who would I rather have” and that’s entirely valid, but I seem to also be favoring guys who are more advanced and closer to being ready than I am on who has the higher ceiling. 
Lowther-Vavra.

BTW Mayo is at 24 on the MLB list. Either Tony has him a lot higher, or he just threw him out there as a tease.

I think we know Lowther is 11, since he was going to be 10 before Tony had a change of heart and inserted Akin there.    I’m going with Diaz here purely because he’s the furthest along and has formerly been ranked higher than this.

11 is Lowther based on the other threads. 12 is between Diaz and Vavra, IMO. I chose Vavra. Getting some CF time, at a minimum, raises his floor. Or, it indicates they don't like his infield defense, which could stink.

I don't think he's here because of the unknowns, but I love the write-ups on Mayo and think he could be a top 5 prospect in 2 years.

And I still think Diaz can be a LF/RFer of the future here. I really want to see his production if he actually stays healthy. Maybe it's a character thing. I don't know. Seems to have more upside than the stat sheet is telling us.

Got that one right.

    • o   3 years before the Jeffrey Meier incident, Ben McDonald on the mound in yet another controversial home run when the Orioles were [playing the Yankees. During the 1993 pennant race, McDonald was going to-to-toe with the Scott Kamieniecki in a 0-0 pitcher's duel in the bottom of the 8th inning. With Don Mattingly at the plate and the bases empty, a 16 year-old Yankee fan from Connecticut named Tim McKenzie stole a home run in the right-field stands from Mark McLemore. Like Jeffrey Maier 3 years later, McKenzie reached over the railing to snatch the ball away from McLemore. In a post-game interview immediately following the game, Mattingly said that the kid "made a great catch" when he was shown a replay of the theft. Also, Mattingly met and shook hands with the McKenzie in the bowels of Yankee Stadium the next day.     http://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=1916&dat=19930817&id=AQYhAAAAIBAJ&sjid=Z3YFAAAAIBAJ&pg=1607,2158095     In the photo, it states:   A GIFT: - Don Mattingly, left, shakes hands with Tim McKenzie at Yankee Stadium on Monday, prior to autographing the baseball that McKenzie is holding. The 16 year-old Durham, CT resident caught the ball over the railing, but Mattingly was given a home run in the Yankees' 1-0 win over the Orioles.   For his efforts, McDonald was credited with a complete-game loss, ceding that lone run in his 8 innings on the mound that afternoon.   o
    • The Orioles won't lose an affiliate. If Frederick or Delmarva was contracted Aberdeen would just be added. They will still have a Low-A, High-A, AA, and AAA teams. Only the New York Penn League was scheduled to go under which means they will just move one franchise to Aberdeen.
    • Came to post this... I started the video at a specific time. Is this even possible? Trying to think of the Physics of it in my head but I don't know.......  
    • Great post Patrick...   but I like this one better, On Sesame Street...  
    • I’m kind of bummed that Mullins didn’t get a nomination.  Third in the AL in outs above average.
