O's get #5 pick in 2021 draft

Recommended Posts

I’m happy to be picking 5th and hope some clear candidates emerge by the time of the 2021 draft.    I’ve read a couple of names, but the whole scene will look vastly different by next July.

So would we have picked #3 if we had lost the final game of the season?

No, we would have picked #4, leaping Boston due to a tie-breaker. Detroit would have still edged us out for #3.

IF colleges (and high schools) play in the spring. Otherwise it's a COMPLETE blind choice...

Elias said on the team podcast the hope/expectation was a lot more combine stuff in the late spring/early summer.  Believe the draft being pushed back to All-Star break will also help clubs catch up on their looks.

If youth sports and college football are happening now then I am sure they will play in the spring

Fair tradeoff for how much fun I had during the season. 

If Elias can't build something picking 1-2-5 he's not fit for the job.

Very true.  Our 2 was a 5 this year, so maybe this year our 5 could be a 2 if someone falls.

A Competitive Balance draft slot can be traded only during a period of time starting on December 2nd and extending up until two hours prior to the MLB First-Year Player Draft (MLB Rule 4 Draft). The slot cannot be traded for cash unless it is a financial adjustment made to offset the salary of one or more of the players involved in the trade. Also, a Competitive Balance draft slot can be traded only once (only by the club that was awarded the pick). Once traded, the slot cannot be "flipped" to a third club.
NOTE: 2020 and 2021 Rule 4 Competitive Balance draft picks cannot be traded beginning on March 28, 2020, and extending through the conclusion of the 2021 draft.  

If a player selected with a Competitive Balance draft pick does not sign, the club receives a compensation selection in the next Rule 4 Draft, one slot lower than where the club selected the previous season. There is no further compensation if a player selected with a Competitive Balance compensation draft pick does not sign.

Interesting tidbit .....I assume we pick between the second and third?

Any decent baseball training facility has data.  Even Little League kids are given things like launch angle and exit velocity.  It just isn’t info that we can get.  So not completely blind.

That's crazy to me that some leagues would pay for that.

I don't know where your kids play little league, but around here most games aren't even recorded,  much less having any kind of data like launch angles and exit velocity.

I think he’s saying a little league aged kid can go to a training facility and get this data.

    • Ohtani also leads the American League in walks....   as a pitcher. 
    • I didn't want them to sign Franco either. (Though for $800k, it doesn't much matter who they chose to play 3B.) But that play was not at all his fault. He did exactly what he is trained to do in that situation. So if this thread is really about the bunt, it's not the place to thrash Franco.
    • Glad to hear Kjerstad has been medically cleared and is healthy enough to start working out with the team. Hopefully we see him at OPACY sometime in 2022 and full-time in 2023.   
    • The Orioles want exciting players, too -- so long as they're cheap and aren't among the Saviors of the Franchise being held back so that team control of them will fall within some imagined flood of talent that's on its way some day. If they can't have all those things, the Orioles will opt for cheap. I'll try to explain in a future post why I think the Orioles may be underestimating the damage they're doing to themselves, but here's the gist of it. By not trying, year after year, to put young, entertaining talent on the field, the Orioles are having their fan base, and attendance, eaten away. That's a manageable problem if you're operating in Houston or Chicago, or in a pre-Nats Baltimore with a stadium that itself is a fan attraction. In Baltimore, in 2017-22, the loss of fans is much more likely to have significant, long-lasting effects.
    • I don’t care about inning so much as pitch count. The  manager knows a pitchers maximum number of effective pitches, and that number is higher or lower based on effectiveness during that game. We don’t know that number, but Hyde does. When he starts the inning where that effective limit is nigh, get a guy up, because even if the pitcher ends the inning clean he will have reached his maximum, and the new guy will start the next inning anyway. there are always surprises of course but by definition they are unexpected, and shouldn’t drastically alter the basic plan. If the Pitcher has a good five pitch inning, no reason not to let him start the next inning with the same parameters, if he has a 5 pitch inning with three very loud outs, he’s done and the new guy takes the next inning, and so on. so yes, I would have had a guy up in the 5th
    • I think he may have had him without Galvis. Either way, I’ve been more worried about him getting to balls and his internal clock, and they both looked good on that play.
