Everyone seems to assume that Detroit will take Torkelson. Martin is described as a special hitter who could be very good. He is also described as having a poor throwing arm and his defense is suspect. Sounds a lot like Mountcastle . The Orioles still don't know where Mounty will fit on defense. If the Orioles are ever going to contend they have got to have high quality pitching. I would take the lefty Lacy and hope for the best.

Week from Wednesday? Don't take Kjerstad. No clue how you pronounce that. We have a buttload of piching, but you can never have too many. Plus, pitchers in this draft have an extra year in their arms.

Another question. If there's no '20 season, what's the draft order in '21? Same as 20? Weighted lottery? Jessica Alba's choice?

When the Nationals had two consecutive 100-loss seasons, they used one of their first picks to get a pitcher (Strasburg) and one to draft a hitter (Harper.) They have been to the playoffs five times in eight years and are the defending World Champions.

The Orioles drafted a hitter last year (Rutschmann), so they should probably take the best pitcher on the board this year.

Won the title when they dumped Harper.

Who needs pitching? Not the Orioles I guess.

Yes, with pitching. Used a lot of the Harper money to sign Corbin.
