After this past draft, does anyone think Greene would be the definite pick if the O's were to pick first?  

Nope. I defended the strategy all year until this draft. I don’t even look at where we would pick next year anymore. I just assume we will pick the player around the 10-15 area, even if we are 1st. Sorry for the bitterness, but I’m not a fan of tanking the major league club and then not taking the best player available in the draft.

I don’t think we are gonna get the #1 pick. Diamondbacks seem to be on some next level losing that we can’t even comprehend. 
 

There’s so much time between now and then, hard to speculate who will be there for us when we pick second or third. 

I don’t think we will draft first either, but that’s not really what I was asking.  If a generational HS talent was there for the O’s taking, it seems likely that Elias would opt for a Brooks Lee or Jace Jung type.

Aw, idk, Hyde could trot out Shaun Anderson in a starting role to make it competitive.

Nope. Elias would take the 8th best player with the first overall pick, mad genius he must be.

Like he did with Adley Rutschman?

When there was a clear top choice, Elias took the top choice.  When there was a group near the top that he rated as being close, he took the guy that he liked and could save money with.  I’m pretty okay with that.  Now, I’ll gladly say I don’t get the almost exclusive choice of college players, but that’s another issue.

It will be interesting to see what Elias does if/when the "clear top choice" player is a HS player and not college.

    • He’s not as fast or as good a defender as McKenna, but he seems to be the much better hitter.   I could see him playing the role of 4th OF who can play CF.  Ironically, the desire to keep Rutschman in the lineup every day by using him at DH or 1B will make it hard for the spare outfielders to get at bats because Mancini is forced to the OF when Rutschman isn’t catching.  
    • The only problem is that the Orioles haven't made one draft pick you'd call "high risk" high up in the draft or anywhere in the draft for that matter.   I mentioned Reggie Crawford myself but it seems unlikely to me.
    • Tony, please tell me he is better defensively than Stewart. D J may have been the most inept OF I have seen in years.  Neustrom seems to have a better reputation, although obviously he is no Mullins or Hays, although I have not seen him live. Stewart was definitely cringeworthy out there.  Your insight is appreciated. 
    • I'm a fan of Mateo and maybe higher on him than some. To me, he's not a guy you write in to be the SS in 2023, but I don't know if I hate him as the starter at SS and batting ninth if you solve 2B and 3B with better options than we've seen so far. All that said... Ideally, I would LOVE if the Orioles addressed SS with a Correa, Bogaerts or Turner in the offseason, went with Henderson at 3B and then left 2B to be a competition with Urias, Mateo, Westburg, etc. Urias and Mateo are both guys that likely fit better in a bench role, but if either (not both) is the weakest link in the lineup, hitting at the bottom, I don't see that as a terrible thing. 
    • It’s a snapshot in time.  Mullins has been higher at other points this season.   He’s been cold the last 12 games (.449 OPS) but I expect he will heat back up.   Mountcastle really hasn’t gone on an extended tear this year like he did a couple of times last year.  So, we’ll see.   But I really don’t like his approach at the plate.   He helps the pitchers out way too much for my liking.   
    • Watkins has thrown between 57 and 81 pitches in his starts this year. Even if Grayson is limited he wouldn't be any worse than what we've got. 
    • No offense but Mundy, Bowens, and Teter look like non-prospects so far.
