    The Victor Victor Mesa/Sandy Gaston thread

    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.

    Duquette is expected to be fired

    https://www.mlb.com/orioles/news/orioles-announce-transition-in-baseball-operations-leadership/c-297007236 The bolded sections makes me feel slightly less nervous about Brady getting the gig. Slightly. For now, at least they have someone in Graham who kinda' knows what to do on a day-to-day basis.

    Ongoing Lineup Thread, 2018

    What doesn’t Buck know about Rickard that he feels compelled to play him over Jones?
  14. Sounds a bit more serious. Ugh. Per Roch: Double-A Bowie outfielder Austin Haystweeted today that his left ankle surgery went well. He provided more details on Instagram, about how he had a stress fracture and some cartilage defects and how Dr. Robert Anderson inserted two screws in the ankle and performed a bone graft to repair the cartilage and “prevent my cyst from coming back.”

    Never mind. I didn't think it through.
