Adam Hall is said to have agreed to terms with the O's. (from a Texas A&M article).

Nice.  I hope they managed to save a few bucks on him.

Me too, it does sound like he never considered going to college. He's an absolute steal IMO if they can ink him for under slot.

I like him but the O's did pick him higher than he was rated (for what that is worth).  They might even have had a deal in place.

Speculating, but signing that quickly, I'd be willing to bet they did.

Mason McCoy

He'll be at Aberdeen.  We are a host family with them and were just informed he'll be staying with us, beginning tomorrow (Saturday).

Agreed, and great news.  The kid may be a little raw, but I love the athleticism and upside.  Our system desperately needs athletic shortstops who can actually stick at that position.

I can confirm that 6th round pick, Mason McCoy, has signed.  We are a host family for the Ironbirds and we've just been informed he's staying with us.  He will arrive tomorrow.

Cool.   Have you hosted players in the past?    Who?

Someone indicated that the savings are 6 through 10. 

Doesn't mean they couldn't have picked up a few bucks from rounds 2-5.

I suspect they don't think they will.

Looks like DL is ready to hardball

"I think that's something that me and my family are working on making a decision," Hall said. "But I think either way it will be a blessing, whether I go play pro ball or if I do go play for Florida State. I think either way it's a win-win situation.
 
"... It's kind of one of those decisions that you make after [the draft] really, I've always been a real big fan of college and college has always [been] big for me in my head, but we'll see what happens."

Give me some warning next time and I will do some editing. 

I did see an article where first round pick Hall discussed signing with Os versus college as two great options.  I have rarely seen a top prospect outside the consensus top 5 turn down $3M, but if Hall did, we would have that $ available from the 6-10 underslots to go after Jones and Allen.  One other thing with Hall that is a bit odd is that I have seen him listed at 6'2" on multiple sources and then 6 feet on others.  Hall has a big upside.

It would be nice to see the Os tell Hall to take slot $ or go to college.

Edit. And I will. Thanks for the contribution.

    • Per Melewski: https://www.masnsports.com/steve-melewski/2021/01/basallo-and-hernandez-head-up-os-international-class.html "The Orioles today announced a signing class of 17 international amateurs, including the club’s first two players signed for seven figures. Per industry sources, the club has contract agreements with catcher Samuel Basallo from the Dominican Republic for $1.3 million and with Venezuelan shortstop Maikol Hernández for $1.2 million. The Orioles announced that 11 more from this group are six-figure agreements. Of the 17 agreements, 13 are from the Dominican Republic and four are from Venezuela   Catcher Samuel Basallo, L/R, 16, Dominican Republic Basallo, once linked to the New York Yankees, got the largest signing bonus ever given to an international amateur by the Orioles. Basallo, who turned 16 on Aug. 13, has plus arm strength and some solid raw power. Some scouts have put a 60 grade on his arm. At 6-foot-3 and 198 lbs., it’s possible he could outgrow the catcher position. Shortstop Maikol Hernández, R/R, 17, Venezuela At 6-foot-4 and 175 lbs., Hernández has several impressive tools with a strong arm and power. He’s drawn some comparisons to bigger shortstops at young ages like Carlos Correa and Manny Machado. He was previously linked to St. Louis and Pittsburgh. Six players, per industry sources, signed with the Orioles for bonuses between $300,000 and $400,000. Here is that group: Outfielder Wilmer Feliciano, L/R, 16, Dominican Republic He is a lefty batter with some solid raw power and it is believed got the third-highest bonus among this group. Shortstop Victor Celedonio, S/R, 17, Dominican Republic A switch-hitter, it is believed he got the fourth-highest signing bonus in this class. Outfielder Teudis Cortorreal, L/L, 17, Dominican Republic A lefty batter who is a center field prospect. Shortstop Eruviel Castillo, R/R, 17 Dominican Republic Shortstop Anderson De Los Santos, R/R, 17, Dominican Republic Catcher Yasmil Bucce, L/R, 16, Venezuela The following players signed six-figure bonuses, believed to range between $100,000 and $225,000. Catcher Aneudis Mordán, R/R, 16, Dominican Republic Shortstop Angel Tejada, R/R, 16, Dominican Republic Center fielder Junior Lara, L/L, 16, Dominican Republic Left-hander Deivy Cruz, L/L, 16, Dominican Republic Center fielder Ángel Peña, L/R, 16, Dominican Republic These four signings round out this class. Outfielder Héctor Jiménez, R/R, 16, Dominican Republic Left-hander Elvis Polanco, L/L, 17, Dominican Republic Catcher Carlos Rodríguez, R/R, 17, Venezuela Outfielder Grabiel Salazar, R/R, 19, Venezuela"
    • Man, I thought that was it, winning teams again for the foreseeable future.  Many more free agent contracts, with all the stars coming to play in orange and black.  A couple playoff runs, a few world series, wow it is incredible how naive I was back then and how little understanding of exactly how awful our pitching was.   I am very excited for the future now however and really enjoy watching this rebuild process, even as slow and boring it is and this winter is, but I agree with the OP, this off season has been incredibly boring!
    • Fair, I did see Darvish and Kim (not Snell).  And the LeMathiu signing recently as well. Even still that is basically just one busy team among 30.  It is something , so I won't argue that, just saying it's mostly quiet/boring even for many teams that aren't is the "$1 million and south" club.
    • There is sometimes much to critique, but here is an instance where I think Good job, MLB is in order.    This cohort isn't playing high school seasons or anything like that, and the big stuff gets settled far in advance. This is a nice improvement in the league calendar.
    • Yeah. I don’t think Mazzilli was a good fit here either. 
    • They probably should have judging by their Pythagorean record in 2004.  Pythagorean W-L:82-80, 842 Runs, 830 Runs Allowed
    • I hope it doesn't come to this, but Good Play + Punting 2022 + Astro Pariah Theory (for any player who can pick their employer) makes Houston a first-tier landing spot if Dusty can keep them in it.   Either faking a corner, or if Yordan knees still bad. I more like the one where Bregman, Correa and Altuve are our infield in 18 months - who needs "thoroughbreds" then?
