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

Recommended Posts

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.

Cam Coffey says hi! :)

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.

Sounds to me like he's waiting for the Orioles to call back. My guess is that Joe is at the "take our last offer or go back to school" stage.

There was one article that said that Klein backed down from his demands and into the range Jordan was comfortable with and that is how a deal got done.

Yeah, I'd expect a deal to get done here. If he doesn't sign, this is one I would be somewhat upset about. The kid wants to sign, they aren't far appart, unless the kid is asking for a ridiculous amount of $$ there is no reason not to sign him.

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."

    • If you released a guy than his salary wasn't prorated.
    • Off topic, but just out of curiosity I googled Wei-Yin Chen's name, and discovered he was the highest-paid player of the 2020 MLB season at $22 million.  I don't know how that is possible, but then again not much made sense in 2020. As far as Santander, he seems like a JAG.  Maybe slightly above a JAG.  Certainly not a guy to build around, but a capable 5-7 hitter in a lineup of a somewhat contending team.  In other words, he isn't that special. I hope Yusniel Diaz gets a chance this year.  He was supposedly the cornerstone of the Machado trade, and I have yet to see him in any box score.  He isn't getting any younger, let the dude play.
    • Its a good get.  The back half isn't like LeMahieu with the please play him six more years thing, and leapfrogging them in 2/3/4/<never> years will be tougher. Vlad might need to try 3B again if they want to start Tellez and all three of last year's outfielders. He's 5 years almost to the day older than Correa, not that we have $150M lying around, but some chance in 2022 whoever Correa's team is may have a shot at the younger/cheaper/better thing.     Using B-Ref tonight Springer as wild guess for overall Correa comp has 28 WAR in 3600 PA to Correa's 26 WAR in 2600 PA, though Springer better and healthier lately. Maybe now Realmuto in his Bryce/Dombrowski group text is like - ha, your $100M offer, so puny.   He lacks Mets stalking horse though. Good job Jays buying more good players when you've grown enough good players.   I'm good with anybody beating the Yankees, or at least stressing Gerrit Cole's summer, one more year.
    • I watched him pitch..I’m just not completely overvaluing 14 innings.
    • I don't think you watched him pitch. He is not a strikeout pitcher. He threw 83% changeups. He was a beast for 14 innings against MLB hitters. I don't care about his age. As long as he is cheap he gets a shot. 
    • https://www.baseballamerica.com/stories/10-prospects-who-just-missed-the-2021-top-100-prospects-list/   There is nothing linear about a Top 100 Prospects ranking. The difference between ranking 90th and 91st on the Baseball America Top 100 Prospects list is often infinitesimal, as the gap between No. 1 and No. 20 on the list is always larger than the gap between No. 75 and No. 125.
