  1. My point is this team is looking at a 110 loss season, it was a no brainer to trade Cashner for prospects for a free agent to be next year going to be 33. I can't see anyone dispute this.
  2. Is there a run down on the O's International signings today? I am pissed how the Yankees can get the best player? It is all about the money. I have the right to my feelings.
  3. What about winning the 2020 #1 pick?
  4. Orioles, Adley Rutschman Close To Deal June 24th, 2019 at 9:27am CST • By Steve Adams The Orioles are close to a deal with No. 1 overall draft pick Adley Rutschman, reports Jon Heyman of MLB Network (via Twitter). The former Oregon State catcher’s No. 1 overall slot carries a value of $8.42MM. Rutschman isn’t the only top O’s pick on whom there’s news today, however; MLB.com’s Jim Callis reports (also via Twitter) that the team’s second-rounder, Gunnar Henderson, has agreed to a deal worth $2.3MM. A high school shortstop out of Alabama, Henderson will receive a bonus that is well north of his No. 42 selection’s $1.771MM slot value. More to come
  5. Gunner Henderson on verge of signing. MLB Draft Signings: 6/23/19 June 23rd, 2019 at 10:42pm CST • By Mark Polishuk Here’s a look at the latest noteworthy draft signings, with the newest moves at the top of the post. Click here for the full list of slot values and draft pool bonuses, and you can find prospect rankings and scouting reports from Baseball America’s Top 500, Fangraphs’ Top 200, MLB.com’s Top 200, and the Top 50 of ESPN.com’s Keith Law…. Gunnar Henderson, the first pick of the second round (42nd overall), has decided to sign with the Orioles and will officially do so in a few days’ time, Maria Martin of WSFA 12 News reports (Twitter link). Contract terms aren’t known, though the 42nd overall pick has a recommended slot price of $1,771,100 and Baltimore’s offer might well have exceeded that number to get Henderson to break his commitment to Auburn. Henderson was ranked by MLB.com as the 27th-best prospect of the class, with BA (30th), Fangraphs (40th) and Keith Law (42nd) also giving high grades to the Alabama high schooler. Henderson is praised for his hitting potential and some scouts feel he can remain at shortstop, though there is some thought that a move to third base is inevitable.
  6. Hi Weams Is there an update on the O's 1st - 5th Draft picks? Are they going to be tough to sign? Is money the issue? Or is it a question whether they want to back to school? It is frustrating when a pick is taken and he decides to reenter the draft next year.
  7. Is there any progress on more signings other than the 20 signed? It seems stagnant right now.
  8. What is the update on the first 2 picks?
  9. I made a general observation that the Yankees, Rays and Dodgers have had historically great farm systems through drafts, if you read my first comment. I am not going to list every player that that they drafted ever that you said. I am tired of people looking for one negative and ignore the rest of what is written. To you all that have so much pride about the O's and being defensive. But be honest, the O's have not had a great farm system since 1983 I don't care what you want to believe, but the O's don't measure one bit to those 3 teams. Those teams have intelligent people who can recognize talent even if their pick is #30 or #60, they know what their doing, Even if the O's draft a player with awesome talent, they don't know how to develop them, especially pitchers like those teams. So don't like me, but the truth hurts.
  10. Ballinger and Beuler weren't missed draft picks. Who on the O's are that caliber.
  11. How do i know who has signed? Most teams signed at least 1 player, The Yankees already signed 7 players. It is amazing how the Yanks, Rays / Dodgers sign studs year after year, I am soooooo jealous.
