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.

    • The 1899-1900 Phillies are the first team to use electronic sign stealing.  
    • There was never deferred contracts until 1985 when the Mets started it with a Daryl Strawberry contract.  Now about every team has or did deferred contracts before.  Someone always has to be the first to do something,  The A’s started they money ball saber matrix, the Rays started the shifts, the Astros started the trash can idea(ok maybe that a bad example) but teams that don’t have the same financial budget of other teams have to do things differently then big market teams do to compete.
    • Kjerstad had a number and the Orioles knew that number before they drafted him. There have been cases of players in the past changing their number after getting drafted, but it's pretty rare as that is part of the process and is pretty well defined now.   This allows teams to do what the Orioles did this year with Kjerstad so they could get high ceiling high school kids in the 4th and 5th rounds. Team also do this during normal drafts by drafting senior signs or cheap $10k players in 5th-10th rounds so they can use the savings to get guys with high numbers in other draft positions within the first ten rounds.  
    • If Santander is traded and the package returned does not include at least one high ceiling guy, then I'll start to get real worried. Santander is still a guy who can be part of a willing future here in Baltimore so he's not a guy you move unless you think his return will give you even more value for the future.
    • Not true, I did agree with you that one time.
    • Well you're never wrong about anything.  
    • Because we've told 50 times why this has nothing to do with the Orioles being cheap. I did hear the Orioles had allotted extra bonus money to a player that was taken before they could pick so they ended up with Baumler who wasn't going to cost as much. It's not like Elias had a prospect he liked better than Baumler, but the player's number was 200k more so he went with Baumler to save a few hundred K.  Yes, it's clear the Orioles are cutting the budget in ways we've never seen before, but they also just spent the most money they've  ever spent in Latin America, so it appears that Elias is using his meager budget to build for the future, which means guys like Iglesias and Alberto had to go because of their price tags.  Hopefully this is only because of shortened season last year with no fans in the stadiums and the most likely scenario of reduced fans in the stadiums this summer as well. Saying that, I don't think many people around Baltimore would be upset if the team was sold by the Angelos family.
