I've paid next to no attention to the draft since the O's finally got decent and stopped having top-10 picks every year. 

 

Wonder how long that keeps up...

Keith Law will hate our pick. That's for sure.

Just had a graphic up that last year, 20 All-Stars were 1st round picks. 19 All-Stars were international signings. The other rounds were 4 or less All-Stars.

The fact the Orioles are irrelevant in the Int'l game, especially on their budget, is absurd. But we already knew that.

If they don't take 3 starting pitchers over the age of 21 that weigh less than 230 lbs, they get an F.

What a bust compared to the hype.

What a bust compared to the hype.

 

He definitely was looked at as a sure thing. Even more than Hammonds.

 

He did have some quality moments... '93 was pretty good.

Great announcer now.

 

Remember when he was selected and the talk began immediately of him coming right up to the O's. That last weekend in Toronto.

 

Wonder if things turn out any different for him had he spent legitimate time in the Minors.

Angels draft Jordon Adell - he's arguably the most toolsy player in the draft behind Greene. Some questions about hit tool, and arm.

@NickJFaleris 4m4 minutes ago

Such a good get for the #Brewers. He's going to hit for average and power; best college bat in the draft class.

White Sox going with Missouri State 3B Jake Burger at No. 11. Looks like Evan White will be at 12 to Pittsburgh.

Could be a surprise here. Pittsburgh said to be considering Shane Baz, maybe the toughest sign in the draft, at No. 12.
