I did too BUT I will say that there are going to be guys outside of the top 20 that would have been top 12 in this organization not that long ago.  Good depth.

Rom is a very intriguing guy to me.  Definitely someone I wish we had seen pitch this year.

I went with Rom and Smith as well, because I feel the Orioles are really down on Wells and that may have influenced Tony. My guess is Wells is either here or 19-20. I know Tony has ranked Rom relatively highly in the past and I've heard good things about Kevin Smith, so that's who I picked, but I'm less confident about this than any other pick so far

From last year’s list:

13.  Wells

14.  Rom

15.  Hanifee

16.  Hernaiz

17.   Hall

18.   Stowers

19.  McKenna

20.  Zimmermann

Tony said he wasn’t going to change the order of the incumbent players from last year’s list who didn’t play at the alternate site.   If that’s true, the most logical choice here is Wells and Rom.    I could see an argument for downgrading Wells on the basis that he wasn’t sent to Bowie, but what would be the argument for jumping Hall, Hernaiz or Stowers over Rom?

So, I think the only possibility besides Wells-Rom is Rom-Smith.   Smith is a newcomer who could fit anywhere, and there is at least some argument to downgrade Wells.

I’ll go with Rom-Smith to make it interesting.      Both MLB Pipeline and Fangraphs have Smith several spots ahead of Wells.

There seems to be a consensus that Wells wasn't brought to the auxiliary camp due to the logistics of getting him from Australia during the pandemic.

So it makes sense to go with Wells here.

I am a little surprised not to see Smith or anyone from the Bundy trade yet. I just really think it's an unknown this year. To SG's point, MUCH more depth than in year's past.

In that case, maybe it’s Wells and Rom.   Fine by me if it is, but I’ll stick with Rom and Smith (not that I have a choice, since I voted already!).

I am waiting to see Bradish’s name.   Matt Blood was raving about his camp performance.

Yeah, I thought he might be in the 10-14 range after reading those comments.  Tony may see him as a probable reliever, I'm guessing.
