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.

    • Does Santander get you Pablo Lopez (Miami)? Maybe add Zimmerman for Mesa Jr? Is that even close to reality?
    • Good voice, mediocre announcer. I liked him in the emcee roles, not nearly as much when he was behind a mic while there was a game being played.
    • We’ll see what?  Do you think Elias “punted” on the pick?  Do you think he intentionally drafted someone who sucks? Do you think he’s going to fail?
    • Personally, I liked Hunter and will miss him. I was pretty upset when we lost Jon Miller, but even though Hunter wasn't nearly as good, I enjoyed listening to him. On a side note, I know a number of Yankee fans who couldn't stand him (or Joe Angel) and would trash him to no end, and that would make me laugh... maybe that has something to do with it too, lol.
    • I wonder if they could actually sit Davis down and say, “look. You’re on the team. But you’re not gonna play. We’re going to ignore you in press conferences And if anybody asks we’re going to say that you’re on the team, and that is that. We will use you in an emergency situation and aside from that your spot is just a black hole. Now get out of this office.”
    • Sports Guy’s and Can_of_corn’s comments about how quickly college players can reach the majors reminded my that, when I gathered the data for this thread, I captured when the player had been drafted or signed, whether they came from a 4 year school, Juco or high school, and when they debuted in the majors.   So, I though I’d summarize some of that for discussion.    Of the 42 20+ WAR “horses” between 1990-2019 who were drafted from a 4-year college, here’s how many years it took them to reach the majors: 0 - 1 (Sale) 1 - 6 2 - 21 3 - 7 4 - 5 5+ - 2 (Woody Williams, Dickey) Here’s the 33 high school guys: 1 - 1 (Verlander) 2 - 6 3 - 8 4 - 10 5 - 5 6 -2 7 - 1 (Fassero) Here’s the 21 foreign guys excluding older guys from Cuba or Japan: 3 - 3 4 - 9 5 - 5 6 - 2 7 - 2 There were 8 Juco’s on the list: 0 - 1 (A. Fernandez) 2 - 2 3 - 2 4 - 1 5 - 2 I may have accidentally double counted 2-3 guys, but that’s close enough.
    • I'm going to have to at least wait until they announce the list of non-roster invitees to camp, which should be out pretty soon.
