We know he is a Nats fan no matter what the Orioles do. And I am not happy with the Orioles off season so far.

NO! Garza is infirm! Another team has a physical for a pitcher?

Brewers Say Deal With Garza Is Not Complete

By Steve Adams [January 23 at 6:13pm CST]

Despite previous reports that the two sides have agreed to a four-year, $52MM contract, the Brewers announced (on Twitter) that there's no agreement in place with free agent right-hander Matt Garza. Talks are ongoing with the CAA client, according to the team's tweet. Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel notes that he has never seen the Brewers issue this type of statement and wonders if there was an issue in Garza's physical (Twitter links). Assistant GM Gord Ash would not comment to MLB.com's Adam McCalvy as to whether or not there was an issue with Garza's physical (Twitter link).

Brewers could turn their attention to Arroyo. Of course, that probably doesn't affect the Orioles anyway.

Probably finalizing a no-trade clause of some type.

    • I am also betting that Elias was a big fan of not pitching the guys and instead hitting them with guided instruction.
    • Anyone find it's interesting that the Angels never pitched their 2019 draft picks after signing them that year but now have traded away their 5th, 6th, and 8th round selections to the Orioles. I'm guessing Elias was a big fan of their draft.
    • Here's one scouting report of him from BA "89-91 mph fringe-average fastball plays up because of his plus control and advanced command. He also has shown he can throw his average slider and average curveball for strikes as well. He will flip in a below-average change regularly to keep hitters guessing. Stallings doesn’t have enough stuff to miss even SEC bats, but he knows how to pitch in traffic and he is quite steady and reliable—he finished the seventh inning in nine of his 15 starts as of late May."  I did read that he tunnels his pitches well and has a good feel for pitching. Saying that, he sounds like a guy that needs to prove it in pro ball before getting too excited. While I could easily move him into the back end of the list and take off Nevin, for now I'll say he's just off my list.
    • On November 16, 2018, Mike Elias was hired by the Baltimore Orioles as Executive Vice-President and General Manager. After allowing for the previous administration's 2018 player trades and the ensuing player declarations of free agency, Elias inherited a minimum 2019 opening day player payroll (ODP) of about $61 million(M). The O's ODP in 2018 had been $154.5M. Elias's ODP for 2019 was, in fact, just over $82M. Adjusted for a 162 game season, his ODP for 2020 was just under $63M. For those who want to play GM, I am presenting my current projected ODP for the start of the 2021 season. The O's will have pay obligations for all players on the 40 man roster, but I'm dealing only with the "active" roster (I'm assuming a 26 player limit). To be on this list, the player must be under contract or under team control. The players listed on the chart below are my current guesses based on the above requirement and transactions to date. I'll update the chart as the off-season proceeds and/or my magic 8-ball results change (all help appreciated). Salaries are displayed as rounded to the nearest $10k, but the total is accurate to 2 decimal places. Projections for those under contract are from authoritative media sources or the Cots Baseball Prospectus Compensation Website - https://legacy.baseballprospectus.com/compensation/cots/al-east/baltimore-orioles/ Estimated arbitration salaries are the midpoint projections of Matt Swartz at the MLB Trade Rumors site - https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2018/10/mlb-arbitration-salaries-2019.html The 2021 MLB minimum salary is $570,500.  I provide this information so that we can make accurate and useful comparisons to the opening day payrolls of the Orioles in previous years, other MLB teams and the totals for Major League Baseball. As with virtually all team opening day payroll tabulations on the web, my total payroll figure does not reflect any deductions for deferred salaries or additions for set-asides for deferrals from previous years (as required by Article XVI of the CBA). So, please, let's dispense with the squabbling over the "accounting" for salary deferrals. I have noted the 2021 contract deferrals in the right-most column of the below chart. Status   PLAYER POS   2021 SALARY       DEFERRED                ($ Million)        ($ Million)                 P   Chance Sisco C   $0.59     C   Pedro Severino C   $1.83                     C   Chris Davis 1B/DH   $23.00          $6.00 A   Trey Mancini DH/1B/OF   $4.80                     C   Yolmer Sánchez 2B   $1.00                     P   Ramôn Urias SS   $0.57                     P   Rio Ruiz 3B   $0.59                     P   Austin Hays OF   $0.57     A   Anthony Santander OF                    $2.13     P   Ryan Mountcastle OF/1B                    $0.57     P   Cedric Mullins OF   $0.58                     P   Richie Martin UT   $0.57     C   Pat Valaika UT   $0.88                     C   Alex Cobb SP   $15.00           $4.50 P   John Means SP   $0.80     P   Keegan Akin SP   $0.57     P   Dean Kremer SP   $0.57     P   Bruce Zimmerman SP   $0.57                     C   Shawn Armstrong RP   $0.83     P   Paul Fry RP   $0.70     P   Hunter Harvey RP   $0.58     P   Tanner Scott RP   $0.60     P   Travis Lakins Sr. RP   $0.60     P   Dillon Tate RP   $0.58     P   César Valdez RP   $0.58     P   Isaac Mattson RP   $0.57                         Total     $60.21         $10.50                     A = Arbitration Projection               C = Contract               P =  Pre-Arbitration                                       
    • Who is this year's Igelsias? Would Semien enjoy hitting in Camden Yards? 
    • Yes, but Tony has Bradish higher on the list than MLB.com.   I have Stallings below Bradish but above Kevin Smith. 
    • Tony will put him somewhere close to #30 or not at all.
