  1. IMO this dispute is a precursor for the upcoming Labor Negotiations. I will be so over anything Baseball Related with another strike.
  2. Those players that go undrafted are free agents and can sign with any team. Here is an article that rates the top ten organizations that have signed these types of players over the years. https://www.baseballamerica.com/stories/top-10-mlb-organizations-at-identifying-undrafted-free-agents/
  3. Some of the fuel for thought that this OP gives me is: With the talk of contraction in the Minors what types of players do teams keep (age/skill set)?? With such a short upcoming season (If Any) How do teams in 2021 look at innings allowed to pitch?? With no High School/College baseball how will the draft look IF players are given another year of eligibility in college?? If players reject any move to open will contracts (Hence Free agency) be carried over or deemed Null/Void??? Will TV contracts and rights be discounted hence less revenue for ball clubs??? How many of the Sports Networks will go bankrupt with loss of advertising dollars since we have no LIVE events??? I have plenty more but I tire of what will be called a "NEW NORMAL" and it is not even here yet.
  4. This is why I wonder why you would bother with opening MLB Stadiums at a sunk cost when you will already have ST Sites open and running. No fans in the seats would lose revenues if these stadiums were opened.
  5. Kevin Millar had two inside the park home-runs in his career. His first MLB home-run was an inside the park while playing for Marlins and it happened on 5/24/1999 in Chicago NL. His second was while with Boston on 8/26/2003 in Toronto.

  7. Bottom line is that ITS NONE OF OUR BUSINESS.
  8. I would add a third reason: 3) During the season you need to have the ability (with players that have them remaining) to place players on optional assignment. Rule 5 players have no options.
  9. We did allow the Tigers to win the season series 3 wins to 4 losses. Even if we had allowed them to sweep us and everything else stayed the same they would have still had one more loss than the Orioles.
  10. By removing the two Rule 5 players, the Forty has two open spots for players in camp or Waiver Claims between now and the end of ST.
  11. That would be considered an understatement. Nunez does not have a good enough arm to play third base.
  12. So we need to forget about the past days of the CAVALRY IS COMING and trade possible assets. I would keep him until at least his fifth season or until a year before free agency. He will be affordable, possibly more dependable than your "plethora", and still maintain top end trade value.
  13. The Orioles will need a reliable Number three and Number four starter when they are ready to contend or they will not contend at all.
  14. Other than having an innings limit, I think Sixth Starter/Long reliever is in the cards for Cody. If we go to an opener, he would be my candidate as the guy out of the bullpen.
  15. Cody Carrol may be this years John Means. He is coming off an injury shortened campaign.
