Summing It Up


Recommended Posts

I really don't know how to evaluate a draft, it always seems to best evaluated years later.

However, how do you assess your team's signing abilities?

Overall, they signed 36 of their top 50 picks, including 16 of the top 17. The Orioles tried to reach a deal with 44th-round pick, Kevin Brady, a right-handed pitcher from Gaithersburg, but they couldn't before the midnight deadline. Instead, Brady will attend Clemson.

I did a little bit of quick research from the BA database:

Top 15 Ttl Picks Ttl Signed Over Slot for Top 10

Bal 14 50 36 1,2,5,8

Bos 14 51 27 1,2,4,5,6

NY 13 51 33 6,7,9,10

Tam 14 50 28 1,2,4,9

Tor 15 41 34 7,8,9

NY did not get No. 1 or 2, but did get 1A

BA does not have the data for signing bonuses after Round 10.

It look to me like we are competitive on both signing and paying over slot.

And as I reviewed past drafts since 2000 by the O's, we definitely signed more.

Hope this helps.

Great stuff Papa! - Thanks for putting that together. I think that shows how committed the FO is to making the draft a key part of the future.
