O's only have one draft pick in the first two rounds of the draft


Recommended Posts

The Orioles only have one pick in the first two rounds of the amateur draft. One other team has only one also,the Mets. The teams in our division draft choices in the first two rounds:

Blue Jays- seven picks

Rays- five picks

Red Sox- four picks

Yankees- two picks

Orioles- one pick

We better draft better in the later rounds. Blue Jays should get some good talent. We have few picks when we need them.

WTF??? :confused: Can someone, anyone - please tell me why the Orioles who are by far the WORST team in the divisionhave the fewest picks? I know they lost one caused by Macphails idiotic signing of Gonzales, but how is it that our superior competition all have more picks and in the case of all but the Yankees MANY times more picks? Especially in a draft year that is loaded with talent? :(:confused:

Just one more example of how deficient this MFNG organization has become!:mad::angryfire::cussing::angryfire::mad:

Sorry but his pisses me off to no end and I had to vent!!!

Because our superior competition had superior players on their team last season that were considered superior FAs on the market. They were superior enough that their respective teams offered them arbitration confident that the player would turn it down. Other teams then signed those guys and our division rivals got compensation picks for them. Our players were of the caliber that 1) They probably would have accepted arbitration and we'd be on the hook to pay them a lot of money this year (Would you really have wanted Melvin Mora on this team too?) and 2) Even if they refused arbitration, no other team would have given up a draft pick to sign them.

That's just the way it works when you have a terrible team.

It's just a basebal game. I think you should be more pissed off at BP and idiotic comments. They are ruining peoples lives and income.

Maybe so, but this is not the forum for that. It is the Orioles Hangout isn't it?

Well, it turns out that the Type A/Type B free agent compensation rules, designed to mitigate the potential sting of losing players to free agency and help clubs who can't sign the top players every year actually helps the richest clubs. They sign the best players for awhile, then those players leave and the teams that paid money for them in the first place get draft picks.

Our veterans have either (1) been too bad to reach Type A/B status, or be worth offering arbitration, (2) retired with the team, or (3) been traded before they reached free agency.

The only part of the draft that helps losing clubs is the order of the picks. The number of picks (which is, IMO, more important) rewards middle-of-the-pack teams whose best players leave for more money elsewhere.

Well this just flat out sucks and is stupid. No wonder bad teams have so much trouble getting better, especially the small payrolled ones. Baseball is very dumb in comparison to the NFL and NBA in terms of helping to achieve a competitive balance.:(:mad:

Now THAT's how you build an organization- seven picks in two rounds. I wonder how many of those came from the Halladay deal? And I thought the Bedard trade was a good one. :rolleyes:

Too bad the O's can't figure it out. The Yankees you would expect to be last since they'd rather spend the bucks on free agents, so having less picks than them is really quite an accomplishment. :angryfire:

Go O's!

Wanna know what's even sadder? It looks like the Pirates are now going to draft Taillon, which completely :cussing: up our draft board.

We're going to draft Machado, and more than likely, we're not going to have the faintest idea how to develop him. :clap3:

I'm not concerned. This is a mediocre draft, so much so that even if we don't sign our #1 I'm okay with a 1 and 4 next June's huge draft along with any supplementals we get for Tejada and Milwood. Drafting and signing Machado is not going to turn this club around in 2 or three years anyways. I would rather have quantity in a premo draft like 2011. Just my two cents:)

I just mentioned this in the Amateur Draft forum. We could really stock the farm system with next year's draft in that scenario. Maybe it wouldn't be such a bad thing if history repeats itself and PA wanders into the draft room Monday and insists that AM select a college pitcher whose signability is in question?

Boston continues to be adept at churning draft picks.

Wagner, who appeared in fifteen games and logged a whopping 13.2 innings for 'em, gets Boston two draft picks when he signs elsewhere. Wow, what a great system.

It sure is....at least when you're good at identifying and maximizing talent at both the ML and amateur levels.

    • Twenty people believe there’s a trade before the season that changed the offseason? Hmm I said it when Elias was hired. Nothing of any significance will change until there’s new ownership.  Actually, I questioned his ability to perform his duties with the current ownership. I’m still waiting for an impact signing. However, I think they may have a chance with the young guys. Of course, that assumes a big season from Adley, Gunnar and GrayRod and it’s likely at least one of that group has growing pains.    I also hope Hall gets a real shot as a SP. Too many people didn’t recognize the strides he made in season and he’s always been a starter. His stint in the pen was useful, but that kid has electric stuff.  Don’t get me wrong, Elias has been ok, but how much could he do if they loosened the purse strings? Yes, I know, the Frazier signing, but how bout that Gibson guy!  
    • The biggest development of the season will be the sale of the team.
    • We will be fortunate if GRod has a sub 4 ERA. I don’t see him as any more important than the rest of the starters.  If he is ever a true ace (and the odds are against that), it won’t likely be in 2023. The biggest development to this year will be revolved around all the young players, not just one. Everything about this team and the future success of this organization hinges on them. 
    • I'd say that is a yes. https://www.mlb.com/glossary/transactions/service-time  
    • Unusual, in that Birds usually avoid both Fox and Wolf.
    • Why not keep Al and NL just make each have East and West Divisions. Al East is our current group plus Chicago WS and Cleveland plus an expansion in Charlotte-Nashville. AL west gets the rest NL east is that current group plus Chicago Cubs, Pittsburg, and Cincinnati. the west gets the rest plus an expansion in Vegas or wherever. You play your division 15 times (105 games) and the other division say 6 times (48 games). That gets you to 153, add a 3 game inter league to a close geographic rival (Gnats) you are at 156. Expand Playoffs so top 4 in each Division in. the top 2 advance to face the other geographic Division. league winners in WS
