They didn't find it by looking at Akin's timeline.
They found it by finding the tweet in question, looking at the list of people who liked it, and finding one of the 39 names was Akin and it had in his profile that he was in the Baltimore Orioles organization.
No opinion on the underlying re-tweet, since I don't know how to find it and don't want to learn, but as we go further into the summer without baseball I suspect we're going to see a lot of mountains get built from molehills or less.
Yes, agreed. But if he can save a little of the slot amount at #2, then great. Maybe get Boras to agree to split the difference between picks #2 and 3. Save a few hundred thousand and use it at 30/39. To me, that is the goal. Boras is likely saying Martin should be paid at full slot, maybe over.
