    Baltimore Orioles will not play exhibition at Naval Academy in 2019

    The move to strike the Nationals from this completely was wrong. Yeah, i get territories and all, but this came together from their partnership with the Navy because of their stadium's proximity to the Navy Yard in SE DC. I was at the game as a vendor, and let me tell you, it was one heck of an experience for the mids that were selected to be there, and the teams got a tour of the Academy and got to spend a lot of time with the mids. Not only did the Nationals agree to this game, they were also putting in money to help make improvements to the stadium. The Orioles had every right to come in and demand some share of partnership because of it being their territory. But to cut the Nats out completely, especially when their relationship with the US Navy didn't even have anything to do with the Academy to begin with, is dumb.

    I honestly chuckled. You quote a guy to support a point and then you question the same quote by the same guy when I reference it in relation to another point. For the record I think 99.9 is high. It is probably closer to 98.6.

    According to Samson, the only issue is money compared to locale, organization, etc. . Maybe he is wrong.

    My point was that no other team topped their offer because they saw what happened with Pujols. Who was a whole other tier of player than Davis ever hoped to be.

    Didn't seem to be much excessive value considering what the Marlins got for him.

    So they are less likely to favor the contract for the most money?

    Slow learners for sure, my point is that the Orioles were goaded into raising their bid which was already the highest on the table. Reportedly no one topped their original offer of 150M.

    I’ve read that nobody is particularly eager to trade for Stanton, either.

    What is amazing to me is that Texas traded for that contract. Detroit made out well on the Fielder deal.

    They have a little less leverage than Mike Trout.

    Every should have learned from the Pujols deal. But some owners are slow. Although I do think the Heyward deal is more relevant in these cases.

    But if the only other suitors are the Wsox and Phils w/lowball offers, why would the Nats pay more? This isnt the Yanks and LA bidding. its obvious Harper doesn't really want to go to either one.

    Right, it wouldn't also apply to International free agents who have a net worth of $325. 🙄

    I think this is true, but there was also no reason to up the offer if theirs is the highest on the table. Everyone should have learned from the Chris Davis deal...

    Imo, no reason to meet for 5 hours with someone offering less than you just declined with 3 months remaining to find a landing spot. Some book is probably offering a prop on this contract, I’d bet a substantial sum that he signs for more than $300 million. To your point, there are guys who missed the opportunity to sign a big deal, Grandal made a monumental miscalculation, but Harper is a different animal.

    Established MLB stars going into their extension or free agency period is who he was talking about.

    Detroit's owner, who also wanted Davis and had to be talked out of bidding for him.

    I'd actually go to FanFest if I could drink with Gary Thorne.

    During the season when the Nats (and obviously Harper) figured there would be more demand. Instead only the Wsox and Phils have shown any interest. Boras might wait I read that too but I dont think its there now, Im pretty sure I read that offer was pulled. He really looks pretty foolish holding out for a better offer than that.
