I expect Manny to get a standing ovation.  But I don't expect many people to be there. 

They drew almost 22k last year for Halfway to Christmas promotion, so I imagine with Machado's return it will be around that number.

When I checked yesterday there weren't many tickets sold.  No way they get close to 22k for tonight's game.

I don’t remember the O’s ever having a presser for a draft pick other than their top pick before, unless it was some kind of combo thing with multiple picks.

Maybe it was part of the deal. Give him the first round treatment. 😁

Overslot could mean more than just extra cash apparently?   ;)

Hey if he wants a barrel full of Starbuck's gift cards and a new Nintendo Switch I hope we give him that too.

Pleasantly surprised by this. I'd been resigned to his going the Auburn route, given that several HS teammates and, IINM, his brother are all currently on the team. 

I give Elias and co. credit here: they took a big swing with this pick, and it looks like they connected. Good on them.

When the kid showed up on local radio stations the day after he was drafted I felt pretty confident his intention was to sign.  It sounds like the came to agreements with both these picks fairly early and planned these events around this time when the Orioles were coming home.  They appear to me to be an organization that seems to know what they are doing.

    • Andrew Luck was dealing with chronic pain.  Chris Davis is injured and Luck is leaving zero guaranteed money on the table. NFL contracts are not guaranteed.
    • I was thinking about this today. How Chris's image would improve if he retired with a buyout agreement favorable to both parties.  Otherwise the general feeling of most people is he is stealing money from the Orioles who have made him a multi-millionaire. Hopefully his wife can get through to him and suggest at the end of the season he retire. I know this is unlikely with Scott Boras as his agent. Maybe Chris can explain to him his frustration with the game and his declining batting skills have caused him to make this decision.
    • This guy is on fire.....I'm wondering if the guys that said he'd be Nontendered this offseason are ready to eat crow?? C'mon gents, we know who you are!
    • I thought I read something about 80 million from MASN a while back. Even with Davis, Cobb, and Trumbo contracts the Os are making a pretty hefty profit just on the national and MASN deals.   So even if the number 0nly 110-120 million in revenue between the 2 deals ...the payroll is only 72 million and certain to ge less next year. A 40 million surplus times 2
    • When I lived in L.A. and often went down the block to Mexican taco and burrito vans for dinner, cabeza was one of my favorites.
    • I was at the Shorebirds vs my hometown Hagerstown Suns where 3,106 showed up for a Low A baseball doubleheader featuring a Mike Mussina bobble head for the first 1,000 fans (unfortunately I was in the 2,106 who didn’t get one).  Of course game one also had Grayson Rodriquez pitching to Adley Rutchman.  I will stick to attendance in this thread and say that the orange and black dominated the crowd in this Nationals affiliate’s park.   Not sure how long the rebuild will take but there is definitely some excitement for the future out here in the hinterlands.
