    • Your assumption is that the old man listened.  I disagree that he did or that AJ had any impact at all.  Peter Angelos did what Peter Angelos wanted to do.  Yes, Adam expressed very publically that he wanted Davis, Markakis, O’Day signed, David Price pursued, etc etc.   Buck said it in a more veiled and sophisticated way for PR purposes as he knew his role.  Brady never really said squat publically because he was a behind the scenes guy who had no official spokesman role.  Dan was Dan...Mr. Oblique, clearly not his call, but not somebody his Toronto dalliance who was in any position to advocate a different view with the old man.  Peter Angelos knew that Adam Jones was his employee, and was just a player, and knew Buck and DD and Brady were his employees too.   Period.   The deal was done by Peter Angelos and nobody else. 
    • I don't disagree with the conclusion, but I think it's overstated, and that if Mancini could maintain his current level of production, he should attract some serious intreese among contending teams (or teams that view themselves as contenders) looking to add offensive punch. If you throw Trey in with qualifying first baseman in both leagues, this season Trey would be tied for fifth in OPS, tied for seventh through 11th in HRs and 17th in RBIs. (In the latter two categories, there are two NYYs who are ahead of or tied with Trey.) He has hit better on the road than at Camden Yards. I would certainly expect his RBIs, and maybe his other stats, to improve if he played for a decent offensive team.  I think that package might appeal to some teams, though it probably would take beyond the end of July to establish the kind of consistency to attain that interest.
    • Things are falling into place nicely. If Rutschman and Henderson both sign up, that only leaves us with Watson (3), Dashbach (11), Hammer (13) and Roth (29) unsigned among our top 33 picks.  
    • Looks like the over slot money to Henderson is almost exactly what we saved on under slots so far.  Well orchestrated by Elias.  Looks like any late round over slots come down to Rutschman's deal.
    • No extension, no trade (assuming he isn’t worth much). Just let him be the star on a bad team and when competitive baseball and free agency approach you re-evaluate.
