    I almost went Orioles instead of Seattle a couple rounds ago. That '91 season for Ripken is pretty phenomenal.

    Amazing.

    Via PM ...

    @AmazingB select SP Mike Mussina (1992)
    and @dp4m makes the 15th round ... the Arizona Diamondbacks, and selects SP Randy Johnson (2001)

    So @RX_Sith on the clock to finish out Baltimore and @DarthTunick on the clock to select from Arizona.

    i'm at the bottom of the round too and then no pick next round so this is a low point in the draft for me. but it's still better than being in a position where i feel obligated to pick curt schilling. :p
