The Giants have now surpassed the Phillies for worst record. This is a team that won 3 WS titles this decade and came within one game of eliminating the Cubs last offseason.

As it stands now, Phillies are 0.5 games better than SF and the Sox are 3rd worse and 2 games ahead of the Giants.

Oakland has lost 8 straight and might just nab a top 3 pick at season's end.

Not so fast. We're now only 1/2 game better than the Giants and only 1.5 better than the Phillies, who have the worst overall record. The Tigers and A's are tied for the 4th worst record and they're 5 games ahead of us.

Up next, we play those very same Giants this weekend. The battle for the #2 pick! Just like the Niners and the Bears!

The series against the Giants is the most important series of the year ;).

Mostly because I don't want Seth Beer. Or to drop to the point of drafting him.

Goes to show you how fluid the rankings are. I seem to recall that Brice Turang was the consensus top position player last year. Looks like he's fallen behind Madrigal and Gorman at least according to Fan Graphs.

Very Fluid. Some 4th or 5th rounder could have a monster year and shoot up the boards. Heck, about this time last year Seth Beer was a consensus top 10 pick. Now there is a slight chance the Sox might have a shot at him in round 2. And if he comes out and has a monster year, he will once again be a top 10 pick. Baseball is probably the most fluid professional draft there is.
