2016 Oriole Draft Tracker

Recommended Posts

Nothing surprising here. If Palmeiro is taking a physical then a deal will get done. Once there was no money left there was no way that Blohm was going to signh and honestly, going to college for him is probably the right move at this juncture. I think he will end up a good one three years from now but it's probably in his best interest to head to College Park for 3 years and see where he's at. As for Bonilla, I'd give him a $10K bonus offer and tell him every week after 15 July it goes down $1K. Either he wants to pitch professionally or not. There's a reason he was 12th round pick and although there's some upside because of the velocity, it doesn't justify giving a 22-year old with no leverage anything more.

I was really holding out for Benjamin Brecht...

Among those the club will not be signing is 17th round pick Tyler Blohm, a left-handed pitcher from Baltimore-area baseball powerhouse Archbishop Spalding. Blohm will honor his scholarship to the University of Maryland, Rajsich said.

Deadline is at 5PM EST, I hated the old midnight deadline.

And the Orioles have until next draft to sign Bonilla.

This draft is looking really good so far.  Hays is all the way in Bowie now.  Akin has turned it around in A+.  Myers and Haniffee have had impressive debuts.  Palmeiro is close to an .800 OPS in Delmarva.  Bonilla had a good debut.  Jake Ring has been mashing in Delmarva.  We still haven't seen Torres yet.  

Only Sedlock and Dietz are the letdowns so far.  Wish we would've signed Blohm away from UMD.

I'd throw Torres in the dissapointment catagory, but he's 20

    • Not a close call for me.   Keep Cruz, let Davis walk.    Per Fangraphs, Cruz was worth $125.7 mm in his four years with the Mariners, at a cost of $57 mm.  Surplus = $68.7 mm Davis has been worth -$19.1 mm at a cost of $90.5 mm.  Deficit = $109.6 mm so far.   Two more years to add to that deficit. And, we wouldn’t need to hear about it every damned day.    
    • But not everyone will get vaccinated.  We don’t all get vaccinated for the flu.  I know I’m taking this vaccine. Its never going to end.  It will just keep mutating.  It’s here forever.
    • I guess after we are all vaccinated and take responsibility for not spreading the remnants of the virus that make it through the eye of that needle. 
    • Lots of complications in these cases, per the article: At least one of those minor league cases, filed in Arizona and led by the Chattanooga Lookouts, has already been dismissed due to a virus exclusion in the policy. Insurers in many cases have insisted that financial losses caused by the coronavirus do not constitute physical loss or property damage. MLB is claiming the virus has led to both. “The presence of the coronavirus and COVID-19, including but not limited to coronavirus droplets or nuclei on solid surfaces and in the air at insured property, has caused and will continue to cause direct physical damage to physical property and ambient air at the premises,” the suit says. “Coronavirus, a physical substance, has attached and adhered to Plaintiffs’ property and by doing so, altered that property. Such presence has also directly resulted in loss of use of those facilities.” === Honestly, if that’s the best argument MLB has got, as a lawyer I’d rather have the defense side of this case.    But, it will probably take a year to shake out.     
    • Would Elias spend 4/40m on Kim when Henderson could be ready for the majors in 2 years?
    • The insurers did not pay.
