Bourn still has an Opt Out.  So a decision will need to be made on by June 15, I think.

Ok. Thanks. I would wait on him as long as possible.

Rickard/Bourn can supplant Gentry/Kim

I can't see this 6 man pen much longer.

Last night was the first game Gentry has started all month. 

But he has played in 32 of 34 games.    It's not like he's sitting on the bench for a week at a time.

It doesn't matter now but did Gentry have an opt out?

 

No, he just played well in the spring and earned a spot.

I know. We have been winning a lot and he comes in for defense or as a pinch runner.  My point is if Mancini is here for good then you are carrying him as a late inning defender and base runner and in the process have to keep a 6 man pen or potentially lose Kim.

He did play well and Bourn was hurt.

Or option Rickard.

Yes they could do that. 

One thing is Seth Smith. I mean is he someone that you have to pull late for a defender? I don't think he is.

He is at the least a big improvement over Trumbo--and for that we should be grateful.

I could be wrong but it seems like Buck has been ok with losing the last few games. He knows that his bullpen is absolutely worn out. Therefore, he has sacrificed a few wins in order to rest the bullpen. After losing the last three games can we now say that the bullpen is 90% rested and ready to go. Thoughts?

I see Hardy was allowed to make the last out of the game, while Kim rots on the bench

Buck will play Hardy to the last day of his contract or when DD DFA;s him, whichever comes first

    • 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)
