Schoop, J. signed with the Twins. 1 year deal for $7 million.

Folks that signed early were the smart ones last year.

I did think he would end up with a better deal.  One year at under a win seems low.

I wonder if the O's ever made him a long term offer?

Maybe that info will come out soon, now that he is off the market.

The Twins also signed Torreyes today too, so they were aggeessive. Maybe that had an inpact?

He did about as well as I expected.   And he may have wanted a one-year deal in the hopes of improving his position in 2019.

One of these days I’m going to come up with a salary prediction model that’s better than a linear function of WAR.    It’s pretty clear that teams don’t pay on that basis.

7.5M and incentives, I’d imagine they are significant.

What is the status of Mike Yastrzemski?   I know he has 6 season on minor league experience which makes him eligible for free agency.   Did he declare free agency?  Is is still in the O's organization?

He is still listed on the Tides roster, which wouldn't happen if he was a free agent. Maybe he didn't declare for free agency.

To qualify as a minor league free agent:
from http://www.milb.com/milb/info/faq.jsp?mc=business#23
Q. How long are Minor League players required to remain with the team that drafted them before they are eligible to negotiate with another team?
A. According to Major League Rule 3(b), "All Minor League Uniform Player Contracts between either a Major or a Minor League Club and a player who has not previously signed a contract with a Major or a Minor League Club shall be for a term of seven Minor League playing seasons."

See sample minor league contract here (Article VI):

No clue, don’t know anything about him. It’s pretty common name.

It wasn't the guy I was thinking of.

I was just curious if the guys from Mexico were cleared to be signed.

What was your source? 

I have one I trust, but was asked not to share. If it turns out they’re feeding me bad info, I might have to call it a career on breaking int’l signings, lol.

    • Sorting of wishing the Orioles could play the Pirates 18 times a season right now instead of the Yankees, Rays, etc. 
    • One of my favorites from them/him. I'm still pretty torn up by all this. Him and Anthony Bourdain both, messed me up they were so f-ing stupid...  
    • Looks like an Israeli company has developed a test, hope it can be mass produced quickly.
    • Echoed.  I heard beat reporter Susan Slusser on the FG team preview podcast call Kemp the favorite.  Their lineup except Olson is exclusively RHH, so Kemp gets the edge on Barreto/Mateo there.  Plus they have Neuse hopelessly blocked by Chapman so they had him goofing with 2B Moustakas style last September.  And they took a Rule V infielder. Hanser Alberto might be Oakland's fourth string 2B. I am almost positive Oakland will keep whichever of Barreto/Mateo they like best to succeed Semien, who despite being beloved has likely played his way out of their price range. MLBTR has summarized: https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2020/02/athletics-second-base-franklin-barreto-jorge-mateo-2020.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+MlbTradeRumors+(MLB+Trade+Rumors) The Tigers have Schoop, so if I'm figuring correctly we should have a shot at first claim if we want.  Perhaps Luke is thinking of just the right lowball token guy right now.
    • I put up a better version I have on my harddrive  
    • 3 years before he put it on vinyl! 1973. This is really the version that runs thru my head... besides the commercial version you've heard 10,000 times. Skip this^^^^^ Watch this one! vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv
    • That’s a worthwhile take, and not something to entirely rule out.  They pitch with different levels of maturity today so perhaps you’re more right than you think, but I value the speed changing ease that Hall can utilize and their stuff is otherwise close to even.  Ranking them closely is intelligent and there’s data to support you too.  Still, it’s hard to not have Hall higher due to ceiling height potential alone....it could end up higher and he’s further from his peak than Baumann is; two significant factors.   I don’t see him thriving at Norfolk initially either and he may not be in the class of their rotation at the season’s start.  8 to 13 starts into the year however it might be a case of him going up and never looking back.   Strong supporters of him like you and I probably expect this on some level.  That’s a mean 1-2 punch and I’m happy to have both in our colors.  I want lots of innings and lots of learning if there’s adversity.  Ornery Baumann could be devastating and having him in a tier by himself is logical.
