Only roughly 3 weeks away, no really good pitchers around so according to the mock, we get the number 1 prospect Druw Jones who would have a nice extra to me since his dad, as you know is Andruw Jones a countryman of mine.

Looking at the standings this probably is the last time we get the first pick, lots of teams are tanking now too.

Elias plays the odds, which means college hitters. He likes shortstops. My bet is Cal Poly ss Brooks Lee. We have four picks in something like the first seventy. It could be a banner year.

If there were highly rated pitchers available Elias would pass over them anyway. Most likely he will continue his strategy of picking lower rated prospects to save money to spend on even lower rated prospects. I am not a fan of his.

Yeah, there are generational talents available this year. It's Adley, not Badly.

They can pick pitchers w/those lower "high picks".

I'm thinking shortstop too.

I just looked at the ratings, as of a month ago. The top five rated pitchers are high schoolers. The top one is at number 10. You get to a Gonzaga guy at number 20. I know the odds against HS pitchers, and we've got Grayrod and Hall disintegrating already, but given the state of our system, it kind of makes sense. Especially the college guy. No GM with a current job has ever spent the number one pick on the number 20 ranked prospect. It's careericide. With the system as loaded as it is, You can make a case for one of the top ranked HS studs. They can wait a few years for one to develop.

Elias' past still indicates Brooks Lee.

I keep thinking Kumar Rocker is lurking somewhere down there. He's ranked about 30th. We pick 33, 42 and 67. Then something like 81. 5 top 100 picks better be a haul. It's our last chance for one.

A Cal-Poly shortstop whose rated in top 5 by some services.

I'd go shortstop w/#1 pick, but those other high picks could go for pitching if a good one's around when Orioles are on the clock.

There are a couple of highly rated HS shortstops. The only advantage might be signing one at a discount. The top rated ones won't sign for a discount.
