Given up on Kjerstad, Westburg, and Baumler already?

Yep.

I mean, if Mayo pans out the strategy of going under slot to get someone like him in the later rounds would have appeared to be a solid one.

Really though, just giving up on Kjerstad and Baumler.  Westburg, not so much.

I was talking to a friend who went to an Ironbirds game last week and was sitting with a couple of family members of players on the team.  They all agreed that Westburg (who by then had been promoted) had been head and shoulders the best player on the team.   He’s definitely one to watch.   

I’m giving up on nobody from that draft.  Delayed but not denied.

I'm half kidding when I say that about Kjerstad and Baumler.  

Here's hoping the 2020 draft is one that can help springboard this team to respectability.

To say the least, Mayo is looking like an astute pick in the underslot/overslot draft.  Kind of performing and looking like you would want the #2 overall to look like. LOL

Can the case be made that he currently has the highest offensive ceiling in the system? I think he’ll be on at least one top 100 list next spring. 

I don’t think he makes the top 100 lists yet.  I think his first chance to debut on one would be midseason next year.

    • So, he doesn’t miss bats, he gives up homers, HR rate is high, his FIP and xFIP were in line with his ERA and he was overpaid.  His walk rate is good though. He isn’t good.     Now, all of that being said, in the last 2 full ML seasons, he has 58 starts.  He threw 180 Innings in 2021.  As was mentioned, he pitched 6 innings or more 18 times and only went less than 5 IP in 7 of his starts.   In 21 of his starts, he gave up 3 runs or less. Overall, he had 8 starts of 5 runs or more allowed. Btw, 2 of these games he came in as a reliever but pitched 6 and 7 innings, so I did include that in these “starter” Numbers”. Essentially, you have a guy who kept his team in the game for 75% of his appearances. That does have value on a team that has an awful staff and needs innings out of it. Is it an overpay?  Yes?  Does the money matter?  No.  If they had paid him what he’s worth, saying 3-4M, would that make anyone feel better?  Like, who cares about The extra few million? For 7 million bucks, I will take the same numbers he put up in 2021.     It’s not really a good signing but it’s they did spend some money and they did address the idea that they need innings out of their starter.  That’s about as much as we can hope for. 
    • I hate defending this team at times but if you are any of those pitchers would you come here or go to a team that can contend? 
    • Don’t the exact opposite of what? And your first paragraph is stuff that almost every team does and you don’t need to lose in purpose for several years in a row to accomplish that.
    • Would have preferred any of those other guts you listed: Bundy, Hill, Wacha or Kluber
    • Not that this move would excite anyone other than Lyles and his family/friends they have to spend some money.     I’m not saying spending $6M this year with a $1M buyout next year will flip the narrative about the Orioles but from an optics view alone they have to do something.  
    • What’s stopping them from making a move like Brault? This certainly should not. 
    • I'd guess that they will still sign someone like Brault in addition to the Lyle's signing.    I don't care for the signing, but if he can pitch to a shade over 5 ERA and 170-180 innings he'd be an ace in Baltimore.
