The Orioles are still in the process of finding a new general manager to replace Andy MacPhail, but they are now facing another front-office hole as their director of scouting, Joe Jordan, has been hired by the Philadelphia Phillies as their director of player development.
Jordan's time with the Orioles lasted almost seven years and has directly impacted the present and near future of the Orioles with his contributions.
While some will look at Jordan's tenure with the Orioles as negative for drafting busts like Billy Rowell and potentially Matt Hobgood, I look at Jordan as a success, with the player development side of the team letting him down.
There are a lot of good players that Joe Jordan managed to bring to Baltimore, and that's where I'll direct my focus.
Here are the top 10 picks (who were also signed) by Joe Jordan in his seven drafts spanning from 2005-2011.
