Did you see who they passed on for Hobgood II?  It's sickening.

Hobgood is exactly who I thought about with this pick.

That's Duquette's last parting "gift" to the organization.

Another guy who "shot up the draft boards."  A guy who "re-dedicated himself to baseball" and "replaced a lot of fat with muscle."

Why is he having to re-dedicate himself again?  Why did he have too much fat on him as a high school athlete?  Why in blue murder are they leaving Cole Winn or Matthew Liberatore on the board to reach 10+ spots for this guy again?

Sickening.  THIS is why they suck at developing pitchers.  Because they suck at drafting them.

 Meanwhile, Nats pick at 27. History says that player will be on 25 man within 2 years.

Yep.  Some teams just know how to pick young talent.  And then there are the Orioles.

Not to mention their insistence on eliminating the International market from the equation.  Inexcusable.

I still can't believe this team will shatter the 1988 team's loss record.  Do you know how absolutely wretched you have to be to lose 107 games?

Three each with the Red Sox and Marlins this week.  I wonder if they can pull off another 2-4 week and squeak past the '37 Browns.

To even be in the same conversation as the Browns is really saying a lot.

2018 Orioles - 20-50 - .286 (46.3)

3-3 against the Nats and Braves.  Not too shabby.  Peter may be breathing easier, because right now, he wouldn't have to pay #1 pick slot money.

I'll try to do a final update on Saturday (after game 81, weather permitting):

 

1939 Browns - 43-111-2 - .279 (wins over 162 games (rounded): 45.2)

2018 Orioles - 20-50 - .286 (46.3)

1911 Browns - 45-107 - .296 (48)

1937 Browns - 46-108-2 - .299 (48.4)

2018 Orioles - 23-53 - .303 (49)

1910 Browns - 47-107-4 - .305 (49.4)

1988 Orioles - 54-107 - .335 (54.25)
