    Is that like a Horse Whisperer?

    Luke’s 2018 Rule 5 Draft Preference List

    Yes, not likely. I was just stirring the pot.

    Apparently, some things may not change. :-)
  4. I played what was called, at that time, in that location, Senior Babe Ruth (16-18) after my freshman year of college. Made the all-star team that summer after being passed over at sixteen and seventeen (no, I'm not bitter) but said "screw 'em," bought a Honda 750K and went off on a 3700 mile solo road trip out west. One of my better decisions. My other notable experience was playing in a junior babe ruth all star tournament where I had the dubious pleasure of facing a pitcher named D. Mattingly. That team was operating at a whoooole 'nother level. We had not business being on the same field as that kid. And, we weren't bad.

    I love that it is Washington that gave them the money. Almost as ironic as if it would have been if they had traded with Philly

    As you mentioned earlier, that did signal that the Os had a budgeted amount.

    So, . . . what do you think of Gaston?

    The only way I can twist into some sense-making transaction is if the Os have a hard budget for international signings and Philly committed to not trading it away to Miami (or anyone else) until these three were off the table. Dubious, I know.

    I agree and could probably add a few others.

    Don't ask me. I sure wasn't one of them.

    Ha. Like I mentioned above, I'm just waiting for Miami to trade with Philly for slot money.

    The Nationals announced that they have acquired reliever Kyle Barraclough in a trade with the Marlins. International slot money will head to Miami. https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/

    So, is one scenario that Miami makes enough trades for international bonus allocation that it approaches or surpasses the Os amount? What if Miami's final trade—the one that puts them over the top—is with Philadelphia?

    I’ll be shocked if the Os sign any of them. I doubt they want to spend the money—avoiding expenses. If they make an offer to VVM it will be low enough that he’ll sign with Miami. I hope I’m wrong.
