That blows.


The O's pick


Gausman, Kevin LSU, LA RHP L/R SO 6'04" 195lbs DOB: 01/06/91 | vid_icon.pngFull Scouting ReportComing out of Colorado as a high schooler, scouts liked Gausman's arm strength but an inconsistent spring and signability issues caused a slide until the sixth round, where Gausman reportedly turned down an above-slot offer from the Dodgers. Now he's back just two years later as a Draft-eligible sophomore.Gausman still has the electric stuff, this time with a little more polish. He'll run his fastball up to 94 mph and he's still projectable given there's plenty of room on his frame to add strength. The heater has plenty of life to it and gets on hitters quickly thanks to a loose and easy delivery. His breaking ball has the chance to be an average offering and he now throws a changeup that fades and sinks and could be an above-average pitch.The right-hander still struggles a bit with command, particularly with his breaking pitch and the delivery on his changeup doesn't always work. But with his size, mound presence and arm, he has all the makings of a frontline starter, one who shouldn't stay on Draft boards for very long if he has a productive sophomore season.

They drafted Ryan Ripken...


First of all, this kid’s got a chance to be a good player," Showalter said. "His last name being Ripken is after the fact. He is an interesting prospect. Obviously, he’s had the right things taught and said to him and I’m sure he has a grip on reality on how professional baseball works, growing up in it.

"It’s the same thing with Steel [Russell] and [steve] Tolleson and different guys like that. That’s one thing that makes them attractive. It all started with what we think [Ripken] can be. You can’t teach 6-foot-6 and left-handed. That happens naturally, good genes."



Looks like they drafted 57 pitchers. I like that. They'll hit on a few and you can always get more in a trade for a pitcher.


Now....can anybody explain the Jammie Moyer signing? :cryin:
