  1. Updated the roster projection to reflect ODP as of 2/19/20. See opening post Projected 2020 Opening Day Payroll (ODP) is at $62.74M. Last year's ODP was $82.12M. Reminder -- my rule for the ODP for the 26 Man Roster -- only players on the 40 Man Roster or on a split contract. The 40 Man roster is now at 38; with the projection of the addition of Wade LeBlanc, it would be at 39. Davis accounts for 36.7% of the current ODP, Cobb 22.3%
  2. Updated the roster projection to reflect ODP as of 2/19/20. See opening post Projected 2020 Opening Day Payroll (ODP) is at $62.47M. Last year's ODP was $82.12M. Reminder -- my rule for the ODP for the 26 Man Roster -- only players on the 40 Man Roster. The 40 Man is now full. Davis accounts for 36.8% of the current ODP, Cobb 22.4%
  3. Updated the roster projection to reflect ODP as of 2/11/20. See opening post Projected 2020 Opening Day Payroll (ODP) is at $62.48M. Last year's ODP was $82.12M. Reminder -- my rule for the ODP for the 26 Man Roster -- only players on the 40 Man Roster. The 40 Man is full. Davis accounts for 36.8% of the current ODP, Cobb 22.4%.
  4. Mason Williams is on a minor league contract and not on the 40 Man Roster

Reminder -- my rule for the ODP for the 26 Man Roster -- only players on the 40 Man Roster. The 40 Man is full. Davis accounts for 36.8% of the current ODP, Cobb 22.4%.

  7. Added a column to the chart displaying season's attendance as a % of stadium capacity for the 2019 season. See opening post By this measure, the Orioles bested only Miami in 2019. In terms of seating capacity, the smallest is Tropicana at 25,025 and Dodger is the largest at 56,000.
  8. Updated the roster projection to reflect ODP as of 1/9/20. See opening post Projected 2020 Opening Day Payroll (ODP) is at $63.68M. Last year's ODP was $82.12M.

  9. Well, that's true, I'll add a column for % of capacity later. Maybe, that will further enlighten us as to a team's relative: fervency of fandom marketing effectiveness availability of alternative entertainment venues competitiveness
  10. OK -- I updated the opening post to this thread - See opening post displaying the mileage to the nearest opponent's stadium. Let me know if this additional information supports any of your opinions.
  11. I thought about that (but the compensation for my efforts is so "spare"😍). OK -- I'll do it later. Later has arrived -- See opening post
  12. Why not? MLB uses the size of metropolitan area (regardless of the number of teams in that area) as one of the criteria for eligibility for a competitive balance draft pick.
  13. The number of posts relating to MLB team attendance on my ODP Payroll post See opening ODP post caused me to cogitate on perspectives as to relative and relevant attendance numbers. So, I assembled this chart: Team Metropolitan Area 2018 Estimated Population1 2019 Attendance2 Attendance Per Capita % of Capacity Mileage to Nearest Different MLB Stadium3 New York (NYY) 19.98 M 3.30 M 0.17 75.2% 9 New York (NYM) 19.98 M 2.44 M 0.12 71.9% 9 Los Angeles (LAA) 13.29 M 3.02 M 0.23 82.7% 31 Los Angeles (LAD) 13.29 M 3.97 M 0.30 87.6% 31 Chicago (CWS) 9.50 M 1.65 M 0.17 50.1% 10 Chicago (CHC) 9.50 M 3.09 M 0.33 91.7% 10 Texas (TEX) 7.54 M 2.13 M 0.28 54.7% 257 Houston (HOU) 7.00 M 2.86 M 0.41 86.0% 257 Washington (WSH) 6.25 M 2.26 M 0.36 67.4% 38 Miami (MIA) 6.20 M .81 M 0.13 27.3% 266 Philadelphia (PHI) 6.10 M 2.73 M 0.45 77.1% 100 Toronto (TOR) 6.08 M 1.75 M 0.29 43.8% 230 Atlanta (ATL) 5.95 M 2.66 M 0.45 79.7% 449 Boston (BOS) 4.88 M 2.92 M 0.60 95.1% 204 Arizona (ARI) 4.86 M 2.14 M 0.44 54.2% 356 San Francisco (SF) 4.73 M 2.71 M 0.57 79.8% 17 Oakland (OAK) 4.73 M 1.66 M 0.35 43.5% 17 Detroit (DET) 4.33 M 1.50 M 0.35 44.5% 168 Seattle (SEA) 3.94 M 1.79 M 0.45 46.6% 807 Minnesota (MIN) 3.63 M 2.29 M 0.63 73.3% 334 San Diego (SD) 3.34 M 2.40 M 0.72 69.6% 95 Tampa Bay (TB) 3.14 M 1.18 M 0.38 58.2% 266 Colorado (COL) 2.93 M 2.99 M 1.02 74.7% 609 St. Louis (STL) 2.81 M 3.48 M 1.24 91.7% 242 Baltimore (BAL) 2.80 M 1.31 M 0.47 35.1% 38 Pittsburgh (PIT) 2.32 M 1.49 M 0.64 48.0% 134 Cincinnati (CIN) 2.19 M 1.81 M 0.83 52.8% 250 Kansas City (KC) 2.14 M 1.48 M 0.69 48.2% 242 Cleveland (CLE) 2.06 M 1.74 M 0.85 61.3% 134 Milwaukee (MIL) 1.58 M 2.92 M 1.85 86.1% 91 1 https://www.census.gov/newsroom/press-kits/2019/metro-county-pop-estimates.html https://www.macrotrends.net/cities/20402/toronto/population 2 https://www.baseball-reference.com/leagues/MLB/2019-misc.shtml 3 https://bitbucket.org/trhdata/mlb-stadiums/downloads/ Here are some of my takeaways as to the O's attendance in 2019: Baltimore's Metropolitan area size ranked 25th, just a hair behind St. Louis. The 10 lowest-revenue clubs and the clubs from the 10 smallest markets are eligible to receive a Competitive Balance pick (fewer than 20 clubs are in the mix each year, as some clubs qualify under both criteria). O's ranked 28th in total attendance, ahead of Tampa Bay and Miami. O's ranked 12th in per capita attendance, a bit ahead of the Mariners, the Phillies and the Braves. P.S. 3 teams' season attendance exceeded their metropolitan area population - Brewers, Cardinals, and Rockies. In per capita attendance, Yankees ranked 28th and Mets ranked last.
  14. Updated the roster projection to reflect the José Iglesias signing. See opening post Projected 2020 Opening Day Payroll (ODP) is at $63.76M. Last year's ODP was $82.12M. Reminder -- my rule for the ODP for the 26 Man Roster -- only players on the 40 Man Roster. The 40 Man is full. Davis accounts for 36% of the current ODP, Cobb 22%.
  15. Though Stewart's is a "split-contract", it is still a MLB contract and as such is governed by the MLB Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA). The CBA contains minimum salary requirements for players on the 40 Man Roster. I've excerpted the relevant provisions below. Of course, Stewart may have successfully negotiated a minor league salary greater than the minimum. ========================================================================== Here's the provision pertinent to Stewart: "....(2) For all Players (a) signing a second Major League contract (not covering the same season as any such Player’s initial Major League contract) or a subsequent Major League contract, or (b) who have at least one day of Major League service, the minimum salary shall be as follows: (i) for Major League service—at a rate not less than the Major League minimum salary; (ii) for Minor League service—at a rate not less than the following: 2019—at the rate per season of $90,400; 2020—at the 2019 rate per season plus a cost of living adjustment, rounded to the nearest $100, provided that the cost of living adjustment shall not reduce the minimum salary below $90,400...." ========================================================================== FYI --: "....(3) For all Players signing a first Major League contract, the minimum salary for Minor League service shall be as follows: 2019—at the rate per season of $45,300; 2020—at the 2019 rate per season plus a cost of living adjustment, rounded to the nearest $100, provided that the cost of living adjustment shall not reduce the minimum salary below $45,300...."
