Both Jim Callis (BA) and Goldstein of Baseball Prospectus have us taking Gausman in their mocks from today. http://www.baseballamerica.com/today/dr ... 13500.html and http://www.baseballprospectus.com/artic ... leid=17238

Looks like it'll be either Fried or Gausman. Detailed Fried scouting report coming in about 5 minutes.

good work as usual by Don.
It sure sounds like it comes down to Gausman or Fried at this point.
I like Gausman better, but wouldn't be upset with either.

Correa is starting to really grow on me though.

Rumor of Orioles on Max Fried at 4 seems to have some legs. Not guaranteed, but increasingly likely.

Wow I am very surprised by Correa there.
This could be a huge shift in the draft now.

Would Appel slip past the Mariners?

Personally I think Correa #1 was a mistake. Regardless it helps the Orioles as I see it. Or, at the very least gives them a one pick better pool to draft from.

Buxton off board. Wow Appel could fall to us possibly.

Not sure Mariners take him. Possible though

Question is would we take Zunino?


(Also with Buxton gone, we won't have to sit through mundane interviews with the lad with an Orioles hat on)
