Hmm Hoes is on that list, I think I'm going to go with him. Especially because of the plate discipline he showed when he was only 18. That's a huge rarity in this system and as a result it puts him high up there on my list.

He's easily the best position prospect after Snyder and is the heir apparent to BRob right now if he can stick at 2B...

Why do people make such statements?

There was a higher rated position prospect drafted one round ahead of Hoes. I love the Hoes pick and he is off to a nice start, but Avery is very raw and appears to have a nicer ceiling than Hoes. To say that Hoes is "easily" a better position prospect than Avery is a significant reach.

Tony posted this in the Top 30 prospect thread, something to think about:

"I will give you guys one little thing to discuss. There is one player on these lists that most of you will be upset at where he ends up falling on our list. He'll be this year's Hernandez or Fiorentino. The guy everyone thinks is a top ten guy and we have him a bit lower."

Then, in the top 6 prospect poll-

"Erbe is going to send you guys down."

Is it possible that Erbe is out of the top 10? I don't think it could be Reimold. Who else could be the shocker thats out of the top 10? I wouldn't be shocked by it being Britton, Hernandez, Bergesen.

All that aside, I voted for Nolan.

(sorry for not using quote feature, its un-possible after a thread is locked...)

A MI prospect with a good eye at the plate is more valuable than a toolsy OF prospect. Avery was clearly behind Hoes, but it was to be expected as he's very raw. Just remember Darnell McDonald, Keith Reed, Kieron Pope etc. when talking about Avery. We haven't been too good at developing toolsy guys...

I have no doubt it's Erbe. Bu I'm going to vote for who I think should be the ranked here, instead of trying to read minds. And then when Erbe gets inducted into the Hall of Fame, I can stick out my tongue and say "I told you so." :P

It should be Erbe. It will be Reimold.

I agree. Tony has dropped enough hints that Erbe is going to be lower on this list that I discount any likelihood that he's the pick here. The margin between Snyder and Reimold is very thin, so I think Reimold slots here.

That is so far off in the future that I can't even comtemplate it. Hoes had a nice debut, but after all, it was only the GCL. In the past, our best high school picks have gone straight to Bluefield. This guy has talent but he's a long-term project. Even if all goes smoothly, he's probably got 4 full minor league seasons remaining before he gets a sniff of the majors.

    • I would offer 4 years for $75-80 million. Trade for Lopez and the rotation would be more than set. 
    • Distinctly remember having a debate with @DrungoHazewoodseveral years ago about McGriff’s candidacy. I wonder if he’s changed his tune. 
    • It's only 2 pages if you take out duplicate posts and unrelated to Gibson posts. It is decibel going to be a long offseason.  Haha
    • He's currently #12. If he collects the entire contract, he will be in the top 2-3. Verlander likely still beats him with this next contract, but I agree it's still close. My point is that ToR starters are wickedly expensive and if Grayson becomes one, as many have postulated he might, having him early in his career when he is cost contained and thoughtfully dispositioning him when he becomes expensive will have an enormous impact on the finances of the ball club. I think mores than Adley and Gunnar but I could be very wrong. 
    • I’m willing to wait and be patient until the end of the offseason. What choice do any of us really have? But if the Orioles plan is to “nickel and dime” Free Agents, go bargain bin shopping, rely on prospect growth, and convince fans they are still in a rebuild with a “limited budget”; I think this will tell me all I need to know. The first name may have changed with ownership, but the last name is still the same. If we don’t spend big now with this minuscule payroll when will we ever? If arb is going to be used as a reason to not spend on Free Agency will it get better when our younger players get more expensive through raises? My greatest hope is that the Orioles actually care about their fans and MORE IMPORTANTLY about winning a championship. I know to each his/her own, but I will never be able to get behind billions budgeting and pinching pennies to make more millions.
    • It’s a huge problem in our society today that if something gets said three times on Twitter, people will take it for a fact.  Let’s just wait until we have an authoritative report.   
    • Reveal show had detail it was in-person meeting today (so Kim Ng couldn't be working on her Orioles trades).    Chipper had a travel-cancelling illness, and was replaced by some old Diamondbacks exec the current HOF president could get on short notice. Congrats Crime Dog.    I either forgot or never knew the detail from Harold Reynolds after the announcement it was Kirby Puckett who bestowed the nickname on a Japan tour.
