Zach, Nick, and myself welcome Dr. Stephen Loftus back to the show to break down the Orioles first round pick in the 2021 MLB draft, Colton Cowser. What does it mean that the Orioles went underslot for the second year in a row? We answer that plus talk about what Cowser brings to the table himself, how Mike Elias and the Orioles can use the money saved in their next few picks, and take a bunch of listener questions.

Loved the info, thank you! My overall impression of Elias is that he's playing the numbers game because MLB has the most complicated process to even make the majors. Very unpredictable. Glad you guys are pretty happy overall with Cowser.

Technically fourth year in a row, though Kjerstad was and Cowser will likely be a greater magnitude of savings than the guys before them.  Rutschman signed for about $315k underslot.  Rodriguez signed for $75k underslot.

 

DL Hall was $108k overslot.

It was fun to hear the tone in your voices too. Everybody was amped up a level. That's how I get for the NFL draft
