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.

    • My kids now will sometimes complain about the quality of the pitch where they have a soccer game because it's **shudder** grass with a few bare spots or weeds.  Even St. Mary's County stepped up in the last year and put in two really nice turf fields, not the 1988 Royals Stadium stuff, but the modern thick cushiony stuff that you wear normal cleats on and that drains in minutes after a huge downpour. We had a tournament over Columbus Day weekend in Manassas and the goalposts were rusty and needed a coat of paint.  Can you imagine having people over with the place in such a condition?  The embarrassment...
    • We have space for 15ish players and we have only talked about protecting around 7-10 guys...so yes, they easily have space. Of course, you do have to be able to field a ML team and dropping one of these kids off the 40 man exposes them in a way they don’t have to stay on the roster, like you do with the rule 5.  So, it could end up being riskier you put them on the 40 man now.     That being said, I think we have the room to make sure you don’t lose anyone you could regret.
    • I don't know what to say without seeing him, but I doubt he is protected. And even if he is picked, I doubt he would stick for the entire year. That said, if he really has turned some corners, then there is room. It may be at the expense of another prospect, though. 
    • Not sure if this was posted elsewhere, but I didn’t see it. Was two weeks before this thread.  
    • And the Rays announcers are really good. Much better than the buffoons who chatter during Os games
    • This is a really gripping series. I’ve never been so engaged by two teams I don’t really care about... although I want the Rays to win, of course. The Dodgers and Nats are the evil children of the NL.
    • It is in the last 30 seconds of this 50-minute podcast, but FWIW they had the Hartford (Rockies AA) play by play guy as a guest Nevin expert, and skimming Vavra at the end he said he thought Vavra would have had a good chance to make the Yard Goats this year (i.e., do the Low-A to AA double bump in 2020). The other Nevin nuggets were August 2019 Eastern League Player of the Month, and giving the near 1B only 2019 positional context as in part being driven by having Colton Welker as a teammate.
