Deadline to sign our draft picks is tonight...


Recommended Posts

We've yet to sign Bundy, Esposito or Delmonico. Things should get interesting on these boards tonight. :P

What - no poll? (insert smiley)

Espo/Delmo - either/or

Bundy - more than 0% chance he doesn't sign (per Hank S) or more than 100 % chance he signs (per SG) ;)

There is talk about a 4th pitcher they are trying to sign before the deadline. Im assuming its a overslot pick. Im hoping it's Ryan Meyer HS P out of Florida. I was very surprised he fell as far as he did. He would be a good get. I think we have only signed 20 picks. To me that screams we are going hard after Esposito and Delmonico. I for one would be ok with signing Delmonico and letting Esposito walk if he didnt like the offer. We would get another pick in next years draft and maybe we give that money to Coats or other overslot picks. In the end I think we land Bundy, Esposito, and Delmonico.

And just think, now we can start looking forward to selecting #2 in next year's draft. It's the only thing we ever have to look forward to midway thru the season. :D

I agree. On another note, with the likelihood that Houston would end up with the #1 pick, do you think that Anthony Rendon doesn't sign with the Nationals, goes back for his senior year at Rice (I think he was a junior this past season) with the hope he overcomes his injuries and has a good enough season to be drafted by his hometown Astros?

From Adam Jones Twitter..."These draft picks need to sign and get they asses to the SHOW and make some real money. Geez. It's annoying already."

I wonder how quick Adam signed with Seattle. I think he speaks for every fan though.

That's exactly what I was wondering. In what round was Adam drafted anyway?

Jones was drafted in the supplemental first round (37th overall) of the 2003 draft by the Seattle Mariners.

Interestingly, Jones was listed as a RHP/SS. The industry thought Seattle might try him as a pitcher, but he and they decided his bat was too promising to pass up. He was later moved to the outfield.

    • I loved the Queen pick at the time.  He was the guy I wanted.  In hindsight, one of those receivers would’ve been nice. 
    • Well, the highest scores weren’t that good compared to most weeks  
    • Here’s the thing though..Hamilton was thought of, by many, as a top 5 player in the draft and he dropped back they questioned his speed/range late in the process. Queen was a guy who was viewed as a young, undersized Lber who needed to develop. Many thought he was the best LBer but still a borderline first round pick. I didn’t love the pick because of the position. But that being said, where else should they have gone?  Who was the guy you wanted at that time? I wanted a WR and wanted them to trade up for Lamb and then I was interested in Jefferson.  This is where I wish they would be more aggressive. But in terms of guys who went after him?  Pittman and Huggins have been good but I don’t recall wanting them with our first rounder.  There was talk of Epenesa and you could have justified Winfield Jr and I remember liking Xavier McKinney.  He was mentioned by many as a top 25ish pick.  
    • Anyone know what Queen’s PFF score was yesterday?  It might’ve been the worst game by a linebacker that I’ve ever seen. 
    • And all of this is why I don’t think you can assume he will be an elite defender next year. Sure, guys develop and they do it on different schedules and yes, the Orioles may just know how to develop defense better than other teams. But still, when a player has a history of X, they tend to revert back to that. As I said, I think it’s fair to think he gives you above average defense next year. I do think it’s wrong to ASSUME elite level defense.
    • I’m traumatized by Patrick Queen. 
    • In the Bills previous 10 games (including postseason), they have had gone over 350 yards in 9 of them and 8 of them were over 400 yards. In this game, the Ravens held them to 328 yards, which is the second fewest over that time period.    They also let up the second fewest points in a game over that time period, only bested by the 19 Miami let you last year. The defense may have struggled at the end but they played well overall and certainly good enough to win. And they did this without Houston, who is the best pass rusher on the team.
