I'm not gonna lie, for this draft I honestly wouldn't be that upset if the Orioles "failed" to sign whomever (whoever?) they draft.

It's a weaker year, and I don't mind the idea of the Orioles having next year's 6th overall pick as well as a likely top 5 (#1? Bryce?) in what should be a stronger crop of prospects.

With the exception of a couple players noone really jumps out at me as a must have at #5- if this were the NFL the team would be doing everything possible to trade down, ala the Ravens with the #8 pick a year ago.

Anyway I'm hoping they get ahold of Matzek or Ackley or Tate, but being unlikely they will fall and/or be an easy sign, the Orioles having two top 6 draft picks next year does not upset me in the least.

But in the end I'll probably be happy with whatever happens. In Jordan We Trust.

(Altho I'm really not excited about the idea of taking Hobgood)

Post them in the thread sure, but it could get really big. I was hoping you could update your opening post as well.

No problemo my friend.

BTW just looked at a scouting video for Hobgood, check out the movement on his fastball in the first couple of pitches he throws :eek:
