- Melewski posted a blog entry about 6th rounder/overslot Nick Delmonico potentially signing, or at least not reporting to the University of Georgia. Delmonico was the 88th best prospect in the draft per Baseball America, so it would be nice if the Orioles signed him. Besides the first and second rounder, the other kid I really hope the Orioles sign is Jason Coats (12th rounder), but my knowledge of the amateurs is weak at best. Anyway, here is the link.
