Nobody posing a real threat from behind. I think we're a lock for second pick. It's hard to pull a veteran AAA pitching staff together at this point in the season. The manager still mutters about the importance of winning games. He's on drugs there. I want That Guy again.

The race to the bottom isn't over yet. I, and the whole world, expect the Dodgers to kick Oriole butt.

We had a chance to do ourselves a world of good this series. We failed to seize it. Means against a real turd today. They'll have to fake a flu epidemic to lose that one. Still, it's a great year to have a top three pick.

We s/b #2, anyway. I add, our top picks this year haven't set the world on fire.

I started to look them up to argue, but there was no argument to be had. Adley showed flashes. I think he'll be a stud. A lot of the pitchers showed promise from later rounds. Too soon to call it a flop, but it's not exactly a resume builder right now. And you don't get credit for betting on the machine gun in a knife fight, so the 1,1 doesn't really count.

Almost mathematically eliminated(-3.5), but we made a heck of a run. Miami probably won't catch us from behind either, up 4. We're the envy of 28 teams. Think how many of them would be willing to trade up for the second pick!

At least we aren't the worst team in baseball anymore. That's an improvement over last year.

Another Arrieta. He had plenty of chances and did nothing for years.

Pretty much a done deal. With Elias already playing for draft position next year, I'm in heaven.

Right now I want the best pitcher on the board for our first pick.

Definitely need pitching. I don't see any real killers in our system.Our first pick mite be a top notch shortstop though.

What if the best pitcher's a high schooler? What then? Too high a risk. The next Manny? Maybe taking that one.

I have looked at a few mock drafts for 2020 and have not seen a high school pitcher listed in the top ten.

I haven't looked ahead yet. The college seasons tend to skew things before the draft.
