Rumors and News

    • The offensive line is good at pass blocking. Also our running backs are guys discarded by other teams.  I am sure if they had Jamal Lewis in his prime they would become better run blockers.  
    • Calling it a bonus pool is a little misleading, but that's what everyone calls it. It's a cap on how much you can spend on international FA bonuses. It's still the Orioles' money. They can spend it or not on anything they choose, except that they can't spend more than they are allowed on international FAs.
    • The two are related. Investment in, and proper use of, analytics is an important element in improving a team's talent. The purpose of analytics is to learn more about what attributes will increase (and what won't increase) a team's chances of winning ballgames now and in the future, and how to obtain those attributes most economically. It's one of the tools that a team should use in deciding what talent to acquire, retain and let loose, how much to offer to pay talent that is available for trade or purchase, and how to use the talent that is on the roster and in the system. It appears that virtually every successful team invests heavily in analytics and uses it in  making decisions about talent. The Orioles' apparent failure to invest in and use analytics as much as those teams would appear to be one factor that contributed to the team's lack of talent. 
    • Is that how it works, though? I'm under the impression you can't use international bonus pool money for anything but, you know, signing international players. I don't think you can just decide we have nearly 7M international bonus dollars, lets dump it into scouting.
    • He will be 28 in December.  He started 89 games in 2017 and 69 last year.   He showed something  good on offense and defense.  He is as ready as he ever will be. What he needs is an opportunity. Then if they sign Caleb as the backup I think they are covered at catcher.
