Gary Rajsich said on The Fan this morning that they really like Cecconi but referred to him as a "back up plan" and that they wanted to hold his negotiating rights in case he changes his mind or there is an unexpected pile of money they can offer him. 

Sounds like he's a backup plan in case someone like Knight asks for an outrageous amount of money. And as others have mentioned Knight really doesn't have much leverage to ask for a lot more than slot. I don't see our first two picks asking or getting overslot so I'm not sure who else would command more money.

If they do a last minute deal with him let's hope it's before the deadline expires this time.

And yes I think it's smart to have a guy or two like this sitting around as insurance.

In the 38th round....no doubt.

When the SD talks about an insurance plan, it is usually about a back-up plan in case someone in the first 10 rounds turns down an above slot offer.  

Maybe we can free up $500k or so from the bonus offer to our second pick to sign this kid - who would appear to be a much better prospect.

Disappointing to think we did not have a pre-draft deal to take this kid with our second round pick and then have big $ for someone else.

The O's didn't have a second round pick.

They forfeited it when they signed Cobb.

I meant our second pick - just so used to typing round after it.

Thanks for correcting the error.

I asked around, and I was told he was not signing. Has a strong Miami commitment and really had little interest in signing if he wasn’t a top half first round money pick. When he’s healthy, he’s legit. But that is not more than half the time. Good kid and all, but better to pass for now and see him in three years.

Yeah, I figured if he wanted 2nd/3rd money, he’d have been drafted there.

On the bright side Cobb has been a difference maker.

Only a can of corn would say that!  👍

    • Good replies but I did not say to sign any expensive free agents. I suggested filling in as Elias suggested on last weeks Hot Stove show the need for an experienced middle infielder (Iglesias), starting pitching (Wheeler or Odorizzi) and relief pitching Hudson and Harris.  None of them will break the bank but will solve his needs. Most of these players will probably get 1 year or 2 year deals. The starters I named may push for 3 years but I would stay away from any requiring more than 2 years since we have a number of young starters moving up soon. 70 wins is obtainable with a few additions. How many games did our pen blow last season.  Givens alone cost us probably 8 or more games and the rest of the pen others. I think most of us would be happy if we reached 70 in 2020.
    • Yeah I guess it doesn’t matter that he’s nearly 30. 
    • No.... .....and it is one of the most depressing / infuriating / frustrating things about the last two years. The guy is a millstone around the neck of the franchise. Mancini should be playing first. Anyone could see the rebuild coming, knew it would be difficult, but looked forward to seeing the emerging players. Some will flame out, some will flicker with hope, and some (Means seems to be the first) will exceed expectations. But C F'ing Davis watching belt high 91 mph sinkers for strike three with that deer in the headlights walk back to the dugout look.....   ugh. That I wish we could be spared.
    • As a state employee, I enjoy watching people dig themselves deeper into holes.
    • Doesn’t bother me that Gammons mentioned he was dumped by the Orioles.    That’s part of the story.   
    • Nope.    But we’re talking about next year.    Elias says Davis is following a regimen they set for him.   I’m not optimistic it will work but we’ll see.   Honestly the regimen may have more to do with execution than approach, if you follow me.
