I just don’t see the value of Beckham even on a MiLB deal. The only position you can play him his in the outfield if you claim to care about infield defense.
With the options the Orioles have in the outfield now, the younger players need to be given a chance. I suppose Beckham could also be a 1B/DH, but the Orioles have better options to turn to first.
US soccer is terrible because the best athletes play basketball and football. If Lebron James was a center back and (name a fast running back) was attacking forward we would never loose the World Cup.
Any player in USA who plays soccer and is good goes to Europe at a young age. Thing is, those kids arent the elite American athletes.
I played baseball in Europe. You don’t see 95. You don’t often see 90. The best players on euro squads are the 3 international slots they allow which are typically taken by Dominicans, Cubans, and Venezuelans.
