    Mullins is with the Orioles! (edited)

    IF you want to see a time line on a Switch Hitter from the Astros, look at Marwin Gonzales stat lines and his advancement under an analytically inclined front office. This is not saying that Mullins would trend the same but there is a timeline.

    I have enough posters on ignore that I don't need to subject myself to Game Threads so I am not aware of the lack of problems of which you speak.

    Just repeating what I had heard previously. It is also odd that nobody posts any of the problems that opposition rookies have in general on this forum. We may be just getting the Oriole Issues as opposed to those of the other 29 Ball Clubs.

    IF we are to have believed our former manager, the second and third levels of MLB Stadiums cause some players a bit of problem in tracking fly balls. IF that is the case he (Mullins) should improve drastically this year defensively.

    And have a STIFF PENALTY for exceeding the cap would keep all the teams from even thinking about it.

    By exceeding the cap, a team is already acknowledging that it has a lot of capital to spend and doesn't care about any penalty. It also doesn't care about the draft in as much as they can buy that player immediately instead of waiting 3 to 5 years for them to develop. Exceeding a cap should cost them all their picks that were overlooked on the way to exceeding said cap hence deplete their farm system.

    3X the penalty and give it to the players union with the stipulation that it is used for the players that never made the big $$$. In baseball, the draft is not an immediate penalty. Allowing anyone not on the Forty and are Rule 5 eligible to become a MiLB Free Agent would be a better penalty.

    My Bad, Should have been What is the penalty for staying in the basement and not making it to the floor.

    If you implement A Cap and Floor, What would be the penalties IF either are exceeded???

    International Signing Alexander Ayala

    I should have been a tad more clear on this. I also believe my take to be correct.

    International Signing Alexander Ayala

    Those that have and will continue to have a very dim view of anything Orioles. This could go nuclear for one. I won't hear about it because of the wonderful "IGNORE" option on this sight.

    International Signing Alexander Ayala

    Not on this forum.. If he is a bust then a couple of the "Snarky" posters will bring it to the fore Over and Over and Over and Over again and again and again. If he does well then the natural progression of the signing will be noted. So I do not think that this is the last we hear of Alexander Ayala.
  15. And this is the guy (Loria) that Peter Angelos kept from buying the Orioles and moving them.
