I'll take any of the top 3 and be happy. I have to say i really want Taillon, but I believe Pomeranz will have a rise to the bigs very similar to that of Matusz. If Harper is there my head might explode.

I'm excited to see who we get, and I wouldn't even be upset (only if Haprer is off the board) with McGuire, Ranaudo, or Machado.

Pomeranz only has two real pitches and no where near the command of Matusz. His pure stuff may be enough to start him at AA, but as far as development through junior year of college, I'd have to say Matusz is a fair amount ahead of Pomeranz. Just my opinion.

I agree that Pomeranz is not the prospect that Matusz was, and frankly I'd be disappointed if we selected him at #3.

From what I've read about the two, I'd rather have Whitson at 3 than Pomeranz, possibly even over Taillon. Is it a given that Ranaudo is not a guy we want to take at 3?

To be clear, is your opinion mixed into this list, or are you just trying to present what you think the industry believes? I know it's presented as a consensus, and you stated you love Machado but are not a big fan of Pomeranz, so I'm assuming this list doesn't incorporate your personal feelings?

As a consensus ranking, I think the 31-50 range needs to be cleaned-up some, based on what has happened between the start of the season and now. Seems light on HS arms -- if BA is a highly-weighted source in the consensus, keep in mind I don't think they've updated their rankings since February.

Zero personal opinion. The rankings are based on various industry sources and factored into a scientific equation for accuracy. All sources used are valid through April.

I like Whitson over Pomeranz as well. I imagine we'll look hard at Ranaudo. My personal top five as of this instant are:

Harper

Taillon

Machado

Whitson

Colon

Got it. As I noted, not sure I agree with a few of the names in the 31-50 range, and I think some are missing (even if we're talking industry and not personal opinion). But I think you touch on a lot of names that will be considered for Day 1.

    • Yeah I just think he's a super interesting guy. Much like his time with the Red Sox, he's a divisive guy who had moments of greatness mixed with moments of not.  The same guy signed Chen, but got himself blacklisted in S. Korea. The same guy turned Miguel Gonzalez and Jason Hammel into very good pitchers, but couldn't get basically any pitching prospect to pop. Just an interesting, mixed body of work. 
    • I see Duquette as a mixed bag, neither all good nor all bad.  I do find it interesting that, despite having some success in his various stops, he went 9 years without a job in MLB after Boston fired him, and he’s been unable to land another position in the 4+ years since being fired by the Orioles.  That suggests he’s not the easiest guy to work with, regardless of whatever other merits he has.  At this point, I think time probably has passed him by.   
    • Oh right, I do remember that. Few things:   1) Britton was injured that year and was going to be expensive the next year, so the value was only so high. 2) We have no idea who else was in the trade. Just because players aren’t/weren’t top 100 guys doesn’t mean they don’t end up being very good players. What if Cristian Javier was a guy they identified (not even sure if he was in the org at that time but the point remains the same)?   
    • An epic derail one post into the thread. Some fans cannot get over their Chris Davis hangup.  Feel bad for @wildcard who had a nice original point that there are a lot of players **on the 40-man roster** (i.e.: not Chris Davis) Elias did NOT jettison simply because they weren't "his" guys. 
    • Had an offer on the table from Hou that had Colin Moran as a headliner.  Was nixed because of medical issues.  https://www.camdenchat.com/2017/8/31/16234234/orioles-trade-rumors-zach-britton-astros-colin-moran
    • DD did some good things, as for the rest of this thread, sheesh, has Spring Training started yet?
    • Davis contract, Trumbo contract, Hardy contract, Cobb contract... The rebuild has been painful and Duquette was the one who put us in that position. Ownership likely pressured Duquette and influenced his strategy and it sounds like Brady/Peter made the warehouse culture pretty toxic, so it's not all his fault, but his signatures were on all the contracts. It's good that Kremer has turned into a legit option but that's pretty much the bare minimum we should have gotten back for a player like Manny. I'm very bullish on Grayson but bearish on Hall. After those two you have Sedlock, Stewart, and Harvey... Gunnar alone is worth more than that group.
