The Victor Victor Mesa/Sandy Gaston thread

I really think the O's, with the $6.7M, hold all the cards in this situation. They could offer the whole load to VVM or split it between Jr. and Gaston or trade it for a prospect. If they somehow blow this and walk away empty-handed, I swear I will storm the warehouse with pitchforks and torches.  

So, is one scenario that Miami makes enough trades for international bonus allocation that it approaches or surpasses the Os amount? What if Miami's final trade—the one that puts them over the top—is with Philadelphia?

It’s believed the Mesa brothers are a package deal.

A talented, though inconsistent Major League reliever. He's no Jack Zoellner.

Ha. Like I mentioned above, I'm just waiting for Miami to trade with Philly for slot money.

The Nationals announced that they have acquired reliever Kyle Barraclough in a trade with the Marlins. International slot money will head to Miami.

So where are all those people who were telling me that trading the 750K in slots away wasn't a big deal since they still had more money than everyone else?

Baltimore isn’t getting them lol. I wouldn’t come to Baltimore either. AJ gets criticized and called racist names for defending black civilians against police brutality? Not exactly the fan base I would want to play for either. Give me Miami.

Plus, we have no GM and Brady out there in an undefined role: hope the org is sold and they start from scratch.

I'll laugh.

What else can you do?

Don't ask me. I sure wasn't one of them.

Do you read the internet?

There was an issue in Cleveland with Houston players and the fans.

You know, there are assholes, everywhere.

I'll be honest, a lot of things the Orioles do bother me since I don't think they are making optimal choices.

Only one maybe two a year really set me off.

Stuff like the Hobgood pick and trading for Parra.

The 750K in slots was one of those situations.  It just made no sense at any level.

So when do teams reach a deadline for obtaining int money? I thought I read recently teams were at their limit for obtaining more money.
