  1. Orioles Interested in Lance Lynn

    So, not saving up was a bit short sighted.
  2. Orioles Interested in Lance Lynn

    Even if they had all the money now, my guess is they wouldn't be allowed to use it on him, because ownership doesn't see this as a viable way to add talent.
  3. Orioles Interested in Lance Lynn

    I knew what you were saying, I just wanted to make sure everyone understood the circumstances. If Otani ends up with the Yankees, it may in part be thanks to the two deals the O's made last year, trading bonus pool funds for minor leaguers.
  4. Orioles Interested in Lance Lynn

    But didn't we trade all of our available international bonus pool money for minor league depth and a prospect or two? How much can we even offer him? According to this article in the Chicago Tribune, the Orioles have just $660,000 to spend on minor league international signing bonuses through Jun 15, 2018.
  5. Orioles Interested in Lance Lynn

    Peters let Reggie Jackson walk without proposing an offer. After Reggie signed with the Yankees, Peters said that if he'd known Reggie was going to get so little he'd have bid on him.
  6. Orioles Interested in Lance Lynn

    I've re-read the MLBTR article several times as well as Morosi's tweet, but I can't find where it says the O's are intent on signing one of the two. Was that your interpretation?
  7. Orioles Interested in Lance Lynn

    Kevin Brown?
  8. Orioles Interested in Lance Lynn

    Free agency didn't exist until after Cashen and Hank Peters was the O's GM.
  9. Orioles Sign Ryan O'Rourke

    Miley used to throw strikes. Walked less than three per 9 until he came here.
  10. Orioles interested in Cobb

    Could be very helpful to Cobb to have a few teams bidding for his services before he signs with the Cubs. Or, maybe the O's offer him substantially more than the Cubs and he signs with the O's. Or, maybe the O's are just performing their due diligence and checking in with every free agent starter. Or, maybe Morosi was out of news and needed something pretty safe to tweet.
  11. GM Meetings

    Unfortunately, the major league pension system doesn't cover players who retired before the establishment of the pension, so in 1986 Major League Baseball established B.A.T - Baseball Assistance Team - to help retired players in need. It now helps more than retired players.
  12. Do you really think you are saying something that everyone on this board doesn't already know?
  13. People felt Britton could close ... how did that work out?
  14. Givens can close, as long as he's not overused.
  15. O's interested in Tyler Chatwood

    I'm not "hating" on anyone and object to your use of the word. If Chatwood could throw strikes consistently, all this stuff about spin rate would be great. But since he has always walked more than 4 per 9IP, regardless of ballpark, he could easily be the next Orioles pitching disaster. I'll take Samardzija's reliable 30 starts and 200 IP over Chatwood's spin rate any time.
