Orioles Draft Notes

For all OriolesProspects.com draft coverage, check out the 2010 MLB Draft archives.

Steve Melewski from MASN will be holding a special draft day podcast.

“Jordan looking for some toughness in this draft”, writes Steve Melewski:

“I don’t want to make a statement against anyone that’s here, but what we’ve really tried to make a point of emphasis this spring is we’ve got to get some guys that are not going to accept anything less than being successful.

“If it means throwing under someone’s chin, fine. If it means taking someone out at the plate or at second base, because that’s how the game should be played, fine.

“Our guys (scouts) have been out to find that. They tell me about some players ‘Joe, this is kind of the guy you were talking about.’ It’s my job to do that and our staff.

“This is a hard game and if you are not willing to fight every night, it’s going to get you. They’re going to bury you, in the American League East especially.”

Don’t forget to check out Camden Depot’s draft chat tomorrow from 11 AM – 1 PM ET.

I’ll be holding a draft chat here from 5:00 PM – 6:30 PM ET.
