    Draft pick chase thread 2020

    Well the 2020 Magic Number Thread is proving to be lacking in mojo, so we will go the opposite route in hopes of producing a playoff run.
    Primary tiebreaker is the higher pick goes to team with worse record the prior year. I think they are sorted correctly now. Reds had the 12th worst record last year and Seattle holds the tiebreaker over them. Reds hold tiebreaker over Boston, Arizona, Washington, Mets, Houston, NYY, St L, SF, and Phils of the teams in the 1-20 range now.

    30	LAD	NL	44	32	12	.727            17
    Currently in both leagues all teams making the playoff are .500 or better.

    Reds unmagic number to clinch top draft spot is 23 with 17 games remaining, (I think) (combo of Reds losses and other team's wins). Same as their magic number to clinch the division, oddly enough.

    Yes, the Red Sox are the long-suffering franchise that REALLY needs that #1 pick.

    Well they really suffer by having such a low payroll, they can only carrying 6 or 7 failed expensive long term contracts at a time.

    Looks like another season where we are bad enough to make the season a drag, but not bad enough to get a top 3 draft pick.
    I appreciate the draft watch though.

    There's a reason teams tank.

    Because this isn't any better.

    On the other hand, other than one series with the Pirates, the rest of the schedule is pretty brutal, we might move
    up the draft pick rank.

    I can't wait to fail our way into the top 5, then be told the guy we picked has a ceiling of a #4 starter or a SOLID fourth outfielder and to be happy about that

    None of the guys we've picked in the last five drafts fit that profile. An argument could be made that India's ceiling was low, but that was a weak draft year.

    Re: Draft pick chase thread 2020

    I can't believe I am saying this.......but the REDS would be crazy to try to win another game. They don't have to worry about fans coming out, they don't have to worry about ratings (most of us can't watch them because of FSOH issues and blackouts) and the obvious better stats usually equals larger contracts. I know, I know mostly hyperbole, but that is my rant for the year.
    Let's play two!!!

    The Reds spent all that money and with a little over two weeks to go they have the 8th worst record in baseball and have a shot at Top 5? You almost have to try to be this bad.

    I remember one time going out to the mound to talk with Bob Gibson. He told me to get back behind the batter, that the only thing I knew about pitching was that it was hard to hit.
