Law and Callis love the pick

There is baseball, and occasionally there are other things of note

"Now OPS sucks.  Got it."

"Making his own olive brine is peak Mackus."

"I'm too hungover to watch a loss." - McNulty

"He was seen as a tough sign and hasn't faced great competition in high school. The Orioles got a great pick even with a pitcher named DL."

"I thought DL Hall was a top ten talent, a prep lefty who sits 93-94 with one of the draft's best curveballs" -Keith Law

I know next to nothing about MLB draft but seems like the consensus is the Os didn't botch this.

He's probably already better than Wade Miley

From Melewski:

Hall throws FB 92-95, touches 96. Has Fla State commit. Jim Callis calls it "steal for the Orioles at 21."

No issues for me on the pick.  A kid like that slides to you at #21...as long as you've done your homework....good to go.

 

We'll wait on him....but that doesn't really matter.

I'm pretty surprised Duquette OK'd a high school pick given his contract is up after 2018. Was really expecting a college choice.

There's no pick the Orioles will make that helps DD before he leaves...in fact....a HS pitcher that is farther away my be exactly what he's more interested in.

Get ready to feel old. Next year we may see guys drafted who were born in 2000.
