I’ll be starting the Day 2 live blog at 12:00 PM ET. Here are some notes about Day 2 of the 2010 MLB Draft.
“I expect to have the ability to do whatever we feel like we need to do. There is a budget, there always is. But we’ve done a good job of spreading the risk out and this year won’t be any different. These guys have always given me everything I’ve asked for, basically.”
The Orioles spent 8.7 million total on draft picks last year and I asked if they would spend more this year.
“I don’t know. I expect to spend a lot more, but who knows if I will,” Jordan said with a laugh. “We’ll have a full budget like we always do.
“I didn’t envision at this time last year (a few days before the draft), doing everything that we did (in 2009). Those answers come in the final days of your meetings. What guy will fall because of money and are we ready? We’ll get to that and try to identify some of those guys and do it again.”
