  1. I remember Tom Phoebus no hitter. He came up as a surprise prospect. That is what I remember him for. Another chip from my childhood goes away. I hate to hear of my childhood players passing.
  2. He won't give up on the mountain of money he got.
  3. I know we all want the O's to win everyday including me. But what is the point of winning now when we have no chance this year. My point is winning now will cost us a first round pick. Right now Detroit is the leader and Kansas City right behind us. How would we feel in 3-4 years Detroit picks a Mike Trout type player and we will say winning those few meaningless games could cost us a once in a lifetime player, playing for Detroit. To me winning that first round pick is more important than winning a few extra games now.
  4. My point is this team is looking at a 110 loss season, it was a no brainer to trade Cashner for prospects for a free agent to be next year going to be 33. I can't see anyone dispute this.
  5. Is there a run down on the O's International signings today? I am pissed how the Yankees can get the best player? It is all about the money. I have the right to my feelings.
  6. What about winning the 2020 #1 pick?
  7. Orioles, Adley Rutschman Close To Deal June 24th, 2019 at 9:27am CST • By Steve Adams The Orioles are close to a deal with No. 1 overall draft pick Adley Rutschman, reports Jon Heyman of MLB Network (via Twitter). The former Oregon State catcher’s No. 1 overall slot carries a value of $8.42MM. Rutschman isn’t the only top O’s pick on whom there’s news today, however; MLB.com’s Jim Callis reports (also via Twitter) that the team’s second-rounder, Gunnar Henderson, has agreed to a deal worth $2.3MM. A high school shortstop out of Alabama, Henderson will receive a bonus that is well north of his No. 42 selection’s $1.771MM slot value. More to come
  8. Gunner Henderson on verge of signing. MLB Draft Signings: 6/23/19 June 23rd, 2019 at 10:42pm CST • By Mark Polishuk Here’s a look at the latest noteworthy draft signings, with the newest moves at the top of the post. Click here for the full list of slot values and draft pool bonuses, and you can find prospect rankings and scouting reports from Baseball America’s Top 500, Fangraphs’ Top 200, MLB.com’s Top 200, and the Top 50 of ESPN.com’s Keith Law…. Gunnar Henderson, the first pick of the second round (42nd overall), has decided to sign with the Orioles and will officially do so in a few days’ time, Maria Martin of WSFA 12 News reports (Twitter link). Contract terms aren’t known, though the 42nd overall pick has a recommended slot price of $1,771,100 and Baltimore’s offer might well have exceeded that number to get Henderson to break his commitment to Auburn. Henderson was ranked by MLB.com as the 27th-best prospect of the class, with BA (30th), Fangraphs (40th) and Keith Law (42nd) also giving high grades to the Alabama high schooler. Henderson is praised for his hitting potential and some scouts feel he can remain at shortstop, though there is some thought that a move to third base is inevitable.
  9. Hi Weams Is there an update on the O's 1st - 5th Draft picks? Are they going to be tough to sign? Is money the issue? Or is it a question whether they want to back to school? It is frustrating when a pick is taken and he decides to reenter the draft next year.
  10. Is there any progress on more signings other than the 20 signed? It seems stagnant right now.
