The great Drew Jackson is putting up a .658 OPS in the PCL.

I just remember him having essentially a perfect head of hair at fan fest. He should be a model.

I love the theory, but it's hard to see Baltimore outbidding the Red Sox and the rest of the majors for a premier talent like Betts.

Of course there will be tremendous demand for him across the game - the point is more that perhaps the 2021-2023 Red Sox are shaping up to be almost as inappropriate a spot for a regular MVP candidate's end-of-prime as the 2019-2021 Orioles were/are for Manny Machado's.  They will still have Bogaerts/Devers/Benintendi though.

2021 is pushing it but I'll be disappointed if by the offseason before 2022 we aren't in position to be a valid bidder for a superstar to push the Rutschman group forward.  Heaven knows we will have the payroll space.

The Orioles were 26th in revenue last year behind the Pirates and just ahead of the Royals. There's absolutely zero chance they're going to make any splurge signings especially while Davis is still under contract. Plus I believe the Angelos family lost their ass when they went "all-in" from 2013-2017 which is why they've been so cheap the last couple years. They're trying to make up for the loss in operating income from the Buck-Duquette era.

Not likely at all.  Maybe tapped into a bit more of that MLBAM money then they wanted but I hardly think they actually lost money.

Cashner is doing great things for the Sox.

Former Oriole Andrew Cashner has been sent to the Red Sox bullpen after posting a 1-4 record with a 8.01 in 6 starts and 30.1 innings.

Happy for Cashner, seems like a good guy, and I appreciate what he did for us when he was here.
