So who do we take with our 2nd pick (3 round 3rd pick

Recommended Posts

And lets not forget about some of the CC and JC guys. Damien Magnifico has an awesome name and an awesome fastball, but not much else, and probably not a JJ type of guy, but I still love the name :)

Curious if anyone has heard anything about Kevin Brady...He is an 11 guy, but its fun to keep tabs on who we could have signed...

Can't forget about Osich either who got hurt this year. He was gonna try to be a SP this year, but that went out the window. I don't know if he seems like a JJ guy either, but we will see.....

If we don't take Machado or Colon with the #3 pick in the first round, I just hope that Rutledge is still on the board when we get to our pick in round three. And we take him. Hard to tell what Jordan is thinking, but I would love to see the Orioles invest in some positional players if Jordan thinks they represent good value for the pick position. If the Bucs take Taillon at #2, I think it is likely between Machado or Colon for us. Just my two cents.

Rutledge seems to be playing pretty well in the CWS Regionals, here is the latest from ESPN "Alabama shortstop Josh Rutledge went 4-for-5 with home run No. 9 on the season in the Tide's win over Elon on Friday. Rutledge, considered by some to be a candidate for Round 3, is hitting .366/.405/.537 with 26 extra-base hits and 14 stolen bases."

He is someone I'd love to see us grab in Round 3.

Im liking what I see. Is he a guy that will be around in round 3? Where is he projected to be picked?

Don't see him sticking at SS. Heard many teams agree -- could be headed to LSU given his asking price.

Chad Lewis - 3B Marina HS, Huntington Beach, Calif.


Could be a target in round 4.

I love this kid. Im hoping he is this years Coffey.

Zach Lee - P

McKinney HS, Texas, Sr.


The football issue will probably lead him to drop. He would be an absolute steal.

I would love to see the O's select Hunter Morris. 6'2" power hitter with good plate discipline, who was selected by the Red Sox in the second round of the 2007 draft. Here is a link to an interview with Morris.

Anybody have thoughts about Derek Dietrich? I think last year he was projected as a 1st rounder, but didn't have as good a year at the plate or in the field as a junior.

Most feel he will have to move off SS and over to 3B. The bid question is the same as Cox and Machado for that matter. POWER. He can't run and doesn't have the range to stay at shortstop. If he moves to third, he'll have to hit with some pop, and there are those who question how much power he'll have in the future.
