Adam Hall is said to have agreed to terms with the O's. (from a Texas A&M article).

Nice.  I hope they managed to save a few bucks on him.

Me too, it does sound like he never considered going to college. He's an absolute steal IMO if they can ink him for under slot.

I like him but the O's did pick him higher than he was rated (for what that is worth).  They might even have had a deal in place.

Speculating, but signing that quickly, I'd be willing to bet they did.

Mason McCoy

He'll be at Aberdeen.  We are a host family with them and were just informed he'll be staying with us, beginning tomorrow (Saturday).

Agreed, and great news.  The kid may be a little raw, but I love the athleticism and upside.  Our system desperately needs athletic shortstops who can actually stick at that position.

I can confirm that 6th round pick, Mason McCoy, has signed.  We are a host family for the Ironbirds and we've just been informed he's staying with us.  He will arrive tomorrow.

Cool.   Have you hosted players in the past?    Who?

Someone indicated that the savings are 6 through 10. 

Doesn't mean they couldn't have picked up a few bucks from rounds 2-5.

I suspect they don't think they will.

Looks like DL is ready to hardball

"I think that's something that me and my family are working on making a decision," Hall said. "But I think either way it will be a blessing, whether I go play pro ball or if I do go play for Florida State. I think either way it's a win-win situation.
 
"... It's kind of one of those decisions that you make after [the draft] really, I've always been a real big fan of college and college has always [been] big for me in my head, but we'll see what happens."

Give me some warning next time and I will do some editing. 

I did see an article where first round pick Hall discussed signing with Os versus college as two great options.  I have rarely seen a top prospect outside the consensus top 5 turn down $3M, but if Hall did, we would have that $ available from the 6-10 underslots to go after Jones and Allen.  One other thing with Hall that is a bit odd is that I have seen him listed at 6'2" on multiple sources and then 6 feet on others.  Hall has a big upside.

It would be nice to see the Os tell Hall to take slot $ or go to college.

Edit. And I will. Thanks for the contribution.

    • @Sports Guy has advocated for running his contract out another year or two until he proves he can be a better passer Im on the extreme unpopular side as it would take a real improvement in the playoffs that include a Super Bowl or Super Bowl appearance. So I’d run the contract out and them tag him twice. In either scenario he’s still getting paid
    • The same that you could put on any oline that had to deal with 5 to 7 players every play! Its the Ravens fault for not leaving the pistol formation that would allow the screen and more passes to be there. There were open receivers that Lamar missed. But, the formation again didn't help. The bolded part! He's the QB and they shoulder the load good or bad. In our case he's in control either passing or QB running 66% of the time. So its going to be more on him than on an offense that throws and runs 50/50. The drops didn't help but that happens some times to all teams
    • Ok ...Thanks   So I am not sure he's referring to injury. Even if he's not seriously injured running Quarterbacks dont tend to age well is the poster's point.   Vick played until he was 35 but wasn't a full time starter after 32. I think is pretty safe to assume you cant count on after 32. But that doesn't even matter right now.  
    • Its a good point the OP makes, there are a lot of question marks and I would suspect these teams aren't done yet either.  There is a reason the MFY just freed up $10 in space with the Ottavino trade.  They also have German and Montgomery who could help.
    • With the broadcast team announced...  Palmer, Brown, McDonald... okay! Arnold, Hollander, Long, Newman...  meh.  We'll give them some time. Garceau... my soul died a little.
    • Assuming most of the good Bowie pitchers have to try to do Norfolk world domination before maybe an Akin/Kremer sized sip, would anyone want Jake Arrieta at ANY price for the Sutcliffe things? Floor starting pitchers with little October upside are the one group (Happ, Quintana, Lester) of players falling far short of Fangraphs guesses among recent signees.   I somewhat suspect no one very good really wants 2021 Arrieta pitching for them, but as ever...we may have a job for some qualified major leaguer. He'd be more entertaining than a Milone clone, but does the regime feel he's anyone for Kremer, Akin, etc. to be around (non-Cobb category) for a year.
    • I agree with all of your points.  Flacco was 27 when we won the Super Bowl. That's 3 full years away for Lamar FWIW
