Info on why Anderson will not be signed/Bywater, and others

It's a very rational long term approach to negotiations.

Sometimes you have to reach. It may not work out with Anderson and Bywater but what the heck. You sign Machado and that's 7 or 8 out of the top ten. Not bad.

I agree that it's ok to cave every now and then. It's not ok to cave on them all though (not that you're saying it is).
For those who want the O's to spend more on the draft (like me), what that means in practice is we need to draft about 2-3 times as many high slot guys so we can sign 1/2 of them and let the other half go.

I like that JJ is being totally up front about the Anderson situation but you still have to wonder why he chose him to begin with. I mean, I guess he felt he could get them down off of their demands?

What are his demands?
Sounds like a deal could/should happen.

I'll have more later, but Austin Urban just told me during our phone conversation that Baltimore's final offer was $175,000. He was looking for something "more in the 2's."
