I wish I could insert a poll into a current thread, but that's not an option.  Regardless, do you expect us to land the Mesa brothers?

I voted no.

Sure, the point is a team can overcome a geographical disadvantage.

But not the Orioles.

I think he's more talking about NBA free agents only wanting to go to desirable locations.  No top flight NBA free agents consider a place like Milwaukee, for example.  

That’s exactly what I meant.

It doesn't matter how much the Orioles have, they wouldn't sign with them for Ten Reasons:

1. Lack of Team Leadership
2. Lack of Winning
3. Lack of local Cuban Baseball community in Baltimore
4. Lack of Players on the Orioles to relate to (no Latin Leadership with the Orioles)
5. Compared to Miami, Baltimore's Fanbase is primarily Black and White
6. The Mesa's are single males . . . REALITY, which city has the better looking women, Miami or Baltimore!
7. Being Elite Prospects, this initial money is chump change compared to their future
8. The Orioles don't have a track record of Cuban prospects progressing up to Baltimore
9. A recent history of not offering market salaries to Latin Players (compare what was offered to Manny to Davis and Trumbo)
10. Failing to send someone to Miami with any creditability to watch them workout . . . outside of Orioles Land, who the ____ is Brady Anderson!

It'll be the 11th hour, everything looking good, Ken Rosenthal will report that it's all but done that the O's have secured Mesa Mesa, and there will be an earthquake under the warehouse.  Brady will be swallowed into an abyss never to return and simultaneously will not be able to answer the text, "Are we a go?!" 

I love my O's.  We are a huge fail.

  1. The Marlins have team leadership?
  2. The Marlins win?
  3. Can't speak to it.
  4. Diaz is Cuban.
  5. Miami has a fanbase?
  6. Sexist much?
  7. Mesa Jr is elite now?  When did that happen?  I'm not sure VVM counts as elite but at least he has a case.
  8. The Marlins do?
  9. Ublado, Beef.  The O's have signed Latin players.
  10. Do you think the Mesas have much of an idea who is who at the workout?  Or their agent for that matter.

1. Marling have a GM and Manager
2. Marlins won more than the Orioles
3.
4. DIaz is not on the MLB Team
5. Miami has a diverse Fanbase that the Orioles don't have when attempted to attract Cuban Prospects
6. Both cities have attractive women but Miami has more diversity
7. 20 MLB Teams wouldn't send people to view them if they weren't elite prospects
8. Orioles have none
9. "Recently", meaning, since Davis and Trumbo signed

  1. No issue, the O's have someone in charge (that isn't Brady)
  2. Last season sure.  Don't the Marlins have the longest current streak of sub 500 seasons?
  3. ...
  4. Do the Marlins have any?  I don't honestly know.
  5. Miami has no fanbase, last in MLB in attendance.
  6. Once again why is female attractiveness a concern? 
  7. Mesa Jr is NOT an elite prospect.  Teams sign players all the time that are not elite prospects.
  8. Do the Marlins?  You didn't answer me.  The O's have signed Cuban players and had them reach the majors.
  9. Beef.
  10. Once again I'm betting the Mesa brothers don't know any of the five folks the O's sent.  Or many folks from the other teams.

All international players go in the draft in the NBA which is nothing like what happens in baseball.  

Different union contract.  Maybe ownership can push for it during the upcoming work stoppage.

1. The Orioles have someone in charge . . . WHO!
2.  Did the Marling win a World Series since the Orioles won a World Series!
3.
4.  Do the Orioles have any!
5. Neither team has a fanbase, but the Marlins fanbase and city more reflects the culture of the Mesas
6. You ask why is attractiveness a concern . . . its not a concern, its a selling point for a city. Each and every, of the near 40 countries that I have visited, men have asked me "are the women in the US attractive". We (you and I) live here, so it might not be in our 100 top questions, but it is discussed by people who view the US or plan on coming to the US. Social is equally as important as your job, unless one is a computer nerd. Singles seek other singles.
7. FACT . . . 20 MLB Teams viewed him
8. Name the Cuban Stars on the Orioles MLB Team that were drafted by the Orioles
9,
10. Who represented the Marlins and who represented the Orioles. Forgive me if I am mistaken, but I thought Jeter represented the Marlins . . .

    • I don't know what to say without seeing him, but I doubt he is protected. And even if he is picked, I doubt he would stick for the entire year. That said, if he really has turned some corners, then there is room. It may be at the expense of another prospect, though. 
    • Not sure if this was posted elsewhere, but I didn’t see it. Was two weeks before this thread.  
    • And the Rays announcers are really good. Much better than the buffoons who chatter during Os games
    • This is a really gripping series. I’ve never been so engaged by two teams I don’t really care about... although I want the Rays to win, of course. The Dodgers and Nats are the evil children of the NL.
    • It is in the last 30 seconds of this 50-minute podcast, but FWIW they had the Hartford (Rockies AA) play by play guy as a guest Nevin expert, and skimming Vavra at the end he said he thought Vavra would have had a good chance to make the Yard Goats this year (i.e., do the Low-A to AA double bump in 2020). The other Nevin nuggets were August 2019 Eastern League Player of the Month, and giving the near 1B only 2019 positional context as in part being driven by having Colton Welker as a teammate.    
    • Nice to hear the tidbits on Baumler from the Instructional League.  I know folks are going to point out the nature of what is reported is overwhelmingly positive, and they are right, of course.  Still, this last draft was performed with heavy analytics and without in person or in competition video for the spring 2020 season in college and HS baseball and without in-person workouts.  IMO, the positive comments are an early vindication of our draft strategy and the two HS prospects we invested big $ in with the expectation that they were essentially second or third round talents.  The early word from various quotes from Matt Blood is that Mayo and Baumler are who we thought/hoped they were or better. 
    • I don't see him getting picked.  Do we have the space on the 40 man for him?
