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.

Who needs pitching? Not the Orioles I guess.

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

We took the 33rd ranked prospect with the 30th pick, so that wasn't a reach.

O's made smart moves. Got a top hitter in a premier position, leaving them extra money to go high on pitching in other rounds.And you rarely go wrong taking a top shortstop.

Or not. Another reach in round 2. Feels like DeMacio is back.

Some experts on the other board are miffed.When you draft #2 you s/get premium, 5-tool talents w/your top pick or two, not guys who could be real good if...Kjerstad was shown as a CF on the first thing I saw. Now it seems he'll hopefully stay in the outfield. Seems to have declined.The last thing they need is a DH/LF type w/the second pick in the entire draft.It's like the Ravens taking a mediocre placekicker w/their first pick.

They don't have the luxury of a ninth round pick blossoming and suddenly bailing them out. Their picks needed to be solid. I doubt if they can even sign their 4th and 5th rounders.

The pre-draft rumor was they take this turd with the second pick, and use the money they save to go overslot on those late picks. If I'm the turd taken with the second pick though, I'm holding out for second pick slot money. I'm the second best amateur player in the country, right? Why should I give you a discount? He would probably have to give up millions to tempt the high schoolers to skip top college programs like Florida and TCU.

Maybe the idea was to waste the fourth and fifth round picks to sign the first three.

They signed the 4th and 5th round picks. That puts a hell of a different face on this draft. They were considered unsignable high school studs. And the signing of the million man army of undrafted players has begun. Somebody's gonna make their bones in that scrum.

Servido is the only notable unsigning now. They have more than enough dough left for that slot. So they've done what they set out to do this draft. I'm less bummed about it than I was.
