In today’s edition of I Feel Old, Andruw Jones and Matt Holliday’s kids will be selected in the upcoming 2022 MLB Draft.

And odds say that the pair of prized prospects will be the first few picks off the board.

Druw Jones is the chalk to go No. 1 overall with Oklahoma State commit Jackson Holliday third in line.

The Orioles own the top pick in the MLB Draft, which begins on July 17.

Jones is trending up. He was listed at -180 as recently as Wednesday morning before getting a slight bump.

Termarr Johnson is also gaining traction. He passed up Holliday as the second favorite on the board.

Jones is the consensus top pick in reputable mocks, though it could come down to the price tag.

“There has been momentum (some smoke and maybe fire, depending on your definition) the past few weeks that selecting Termarr Johnson is the cut-rate option here, rather than picking one of the college bats,” ESPN MLB Insider Kylie McDaniel said in his most-recent mock.

“Johnson appears to not have another landing spot until at least the No. 6 pick and might then accept a bonus of $2 million or so less than Jones would demand at No. 1.”

Still, would the Orioles pass on Jones’ skill set?

Jones, a Vanderbilt commit, was the 2022 Georgia Gatorade Player of the Year. All he did was slash a mind-bending .570/.675/1.026 in his final campaign season at Wesleyan High School, all while being considered perhaps the most elite defensive prospect in the entire crop.
