Well, it's that time of year again....2015 edition

Recommended Posts

I'll update it if the Padres come back and win, but this is what we're looking at for the 8th pick with a week left:

 

8. Tigers 72-83

9. White Sox 73-83 0.5

10. Padres 73-83 0.5

11. Mariners 74-82 1.5

12. Diamondbacks 75-81 2.5

13. Rays 75-81 2.5

14. Red Sox 75-80 3.0

15. Orioles 76-79 4.0

 

Red Sox swept the Orioles this weekend without the O's scoring a run.

Side note...Royals and Blue Jays are tied for HFA. Royals have four meaningful games this week in Chicago.

 

(Tied in record. Blue Jays won season series 4-3)

10. Tigers 73-83

Hopefully the Tigers don't end the season a half game worse than the Sox since they're playing 161.

3-3 with a loss to the Tigers probably keeps them at 10.

 

4-2 will probably mess things up.

 

Hopefully the Royals just win three games, and that should wrap things up before they even play the Tigers.

Rajai Davis bunted on his own in the 9th in a 7-6 game, with runners on 1st and 3rd and 1 out. Popped out.

Playing for that 8th pick I guess haha I hope the Sox are 1.5 games up over the Tigers in the reverse standings so if we win 2/3, we still finish ahead.

At this point, I'm just hoping they stay behind the Mariners.

 

They're trying to spoil the Astros again tonight, and then host the A's this weekend. Hopefully they'll try to win at home facing a crap team.

 

The same could be said of the Sox, but just lose a couple games this week and get the 10th pick.

I know at this point the difference between pick 8 and pick 9 (or 11 and 12) is essentially meaningless, but then I go back to the last couple drafts and if we were just one spot higher in both we miss out on both guys we wanted.

for me, i think drafting #8 and #11 is being in the top 10 protected list. i just don't want to give a natural excuse to the owners for not signing anyone in the FA list.

 

now draft #8 and #11 is drafting a player who i hope will be there. i have 2 players for now, that i love to see the sox draft in the top 15. but like anything else, it is a long way from draft day.

I think if we go 1-2 in the last three, we will have a protected pick. Not sure any such player would be good value for the money. I think when I was a kid it was Richard Dotson who said we were three players away. The Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

2015? Were Sox going to take Benitendi if Bosox passed on him?

2014? We got our guy in Rodon.

2013? I can't remember who we wanted.

Same order. All four lost last night.

 

8. Padres 73-85

9. Tigers 73-85

10. White Sox 74-84

11. Mariners 75-84

 

Tigers and Mariners off today.

 

Final weekend: Sox host Tigers. Padres at Dodgers; A's at Mariners.

 

Sox hold tie breaker advantage with the Mariners, so 2-2 the final four should keep them safe for the 10th pick.

Sox wanted Rodon and Fulmer the whole time.

We also hold the tie breaker over the Padres and Tigers if our records were the same, correct?

Correct, but the Tigers are playing 161 so that won't be happening with them.

 

Sox need to lose tonight and then lose 2 of 3 this weekend to pass the Tigers...or get swept this weekend.

You are reading his post backwards. He is saying if WE were one slot lower the team that would have been in front of us would have picked Rodon and Fulmer respectively.

The Sox did not want Fulmer the whole time. They wanted Tyler Jay and Dillon Tate more.

Exactly what I meant, I should have written one spot lower, not higher.

Go Royals, Mariners, Pads and Tigers. This is going to be fun to see who's doing the most obvious tanking.

 

but it won't be the sox. :angry:

Padres up 2-0 in the 4th.

 

A Pads win and a Sox loss tonight would be a good thing.
