I don't know how to embed a tweet so that it shows up without having to follow a link, but apparently the Boston Globe is reporting that Victorino is unlikely to play. Jackie Bradley Jr. will probably be the center fielder.

It's sink or swim time young Mr. Bradley.

Oh man, I had totally forgotten that Pierzynski is on Boston. Now we get to synchronize our Pierzynski hatred with our Red Sox hatred, isn't that fun?

Orioles officially announce Hunter the Closer. *Basically*

BALTIMORE -- Orioles manager Buck Showalter officially named Tommy Hunter the club's closer, speaking to the right-hander during Sunday's workout.

"If we get in that situation, Tommy will get an opportunity to do that job for us," Showalter said of Hunter, who was widely expected to be Baltimore's ninth-inning man after this winter's trade of Jim Johnson to the Oakland A's.

Showalter didn't want to talk about the closer situation this spring, and some clubs, like the Tampa Bay Rays, never formally unveiled a closer.

"I think every situation calls for a little something different," he said. "Whether it's Fernando Rodney or [Grant] Balfour or Tommy, we have some people that we think have that potential also. We are going to start that way and see if Tommy seizes that opportunity and that job."

Hunter went 6-5 with a 2.81 ERA in 68 games last season, including four saves, and he'll try to fill the void of the All-Star Johnson, who posted back-to-back 50-save seasons.

    • Initial post updated with additions to 60 man roster and info from intrasquad game.
    • Pirate reliever Hector Noesi (Initial post in this thread updated with all the guys who have opted out so far)
    • He signed quickly (for a Boras client)and less than what the Jays could have paid.  You think it is reasonable to think he would have sat out with 700K more on the table?
    • Update: the fourth and final season is brilliant. It takes place in 2030 and is really funny speculative fiction that focuses on how dysfunctional and potentially doomed the MLB is. It’s a must watch. 
    • It's also possible he lost some leverage on his demands when teams let him go to number 5. Still got the 2nd highest SB of the draft. I don't know if it's logical to suggest he would have settled at the same place for the Orioles. And how do you arrive at the bolded when he just signed for well above the slot at which he was selected?
    • I've heard the number for a full year is seven, whether it's games or days I do not know. That is likely a distinction without a difference as far as the Orioles are concerned, as they open with 13 straight days of games.
    • Unfortunately 2023 is the first year Mahomes gets a little more expensive ($42.5M). Hopefully it takes a year or two for Dak/Watson extensions (usually year 1 and/or 2 have a lower cap number).   But  I’d guess Lamar would cost about $35-$38M if he were to be franchised in 2023. That would lead to $42-$45M in 2024. (And $60-65M in 2025).    I don’t think they should (or will) go this route, but they could keep him for the following (cap numbers): 2020 - $2.5M 2021 - $3M 2022 - $20M* 2023 - $36M* 2024 - $43M* 2025 - $62M* *very rough estimates (And could change with big QB contracts) It would essentially be his rookie deal plus a year by year total of 1/36, 2/79, or 3/141. Not the worst thing IF you think he could run out of steam at some point and you think he’s somewhat close to Mahomes value. Again, they won’t do this, but this is what it would look like.  (Note: 2025 would be Lamar’s age 28 season)
