    Elias Progress Thread

    So manager will probably be the main focus for assistants. Elias mentioned some front office hires may be early 2019. What does he focus on next? (Or is if FO guys and just taking his time to get there...?)
  2. Wouldn't it be more painful for him to play on the field with this team next year?
  3. Oh I understand and agree. I also am not saying this wasn't a good move either. While I also understand it will take time, even baby steps in this area will feel better. I hope we can all see the progression prior to the next signing period in July. There is an opportunity with this (edit: cap pool availability) money and it'd be nice to see something from their stockpile.
  4. The 1st pick Martin was a selection (that costs 100K). No international money included. That's just a normal pick. Drew Jackson was picked by the Phillies and the O's traded for that Rule 5 selection and that included international money. As some mentioned, the O's probably had this agreement lined up if Drew Jackson was available to be picked. This way, they didn't have to wait to see if other teams picked him up, waiting for round 2. This talks about both guys a bit more and the Rule 5. Hope it helps. https://www.baltimoresun.com/sports/orioles/bs-sp-orioles-richie-martin-rule-5-story.html
  5. This I didn't see. Teams trading guys I have seen before, just never for international $$.
  6. Why pick Jackson in the Rule 5 for 100K, then trade for a chance to use money that you don't have a plan to spend? If the Phillies don't use the money, they literally bought a player for us...that would seem really weird to me.
  7. This is the 2nd time the Phillies asked for more money. So while we may not make it through 6 mill, clearly at least they see some guys still out there. It would make sense that it's not priority 1 with a manager needed, winter meetings happening, I'd like to think we'll still spend some of it on actual international players.
  8. So Cobb, Cashner, Davis and Trumbo only guys at 5+ mill? Some are way over, but that's pretty minimal. Rumors on Cobb being available. Trumbo and Cashner seem reasonable at some point this year. Davis could match the rest of the team... dang. (not quite, but still...)

    Yeah, it went so fast that I wasn't sure who was left from Luke's list.

    Playoff teams are all passing. O's up again in 2 picks.

    Luke’s 2018 Rule 5 Draft Preference List

    No trades, it's just cross off the list and go with next. Angel are first pass. Really moving.

    Luke’s 2018 Rule 5 Draft Preference List

    I love that they are spelling names out. This is really different than any draft I've seen/heard.
