2019-2020 International Signings Thread

So, I'm not 100% sure, but a number of people are saying the international slot the Orioles traded to the Cubs is a 2019/20 slot and not a 2018/19. Considering the Cubs have already exceeded their budget by signing just 3 players, I'm starting to think that's likely true.

I’m a hundred percent sure. Those number of people are all wrong. Wishful hoping.

Here’s the deal. You can go over your allotment. You are just banned for a few years. Or you can simply trade for the space through the end of the signing period. When it is reconciled.

Can anyone answer this: Yankees are shown to have 5.4m and yet have signed the number 1 for 5m and Diaz to 1.2m. Can they make these deals before they buy more slots?? Or are these just “agreements” until they can get more slots?

I’m an Orioles fan so this international thing is so new to me.

The rules are that you May sign for more than your slots. You must accumulate enough slots for what you have spent during the signing year.

I’m still confused.  When did we trade an international bonus slot to the Cubs?  If you are talking about the Zoellner trade, that was with the Phillies, and it was for a bonus slot during the 2018-2019 signing period.  Please explain, because I don’t understand where this claim originated from.  Thanks.

From the Sun:

So the Orioles signed 27 international prospects the past three years combined and then 27 today alone.

You can not trade away slots for a future signing period.

Dan did and thankfully MLB didn't penalize the team for his transgression.

It is a hard cap now, you cannot spend over your combined allotment and what you have traded for. Contracts that put a team over would not be approved by MLB.

Araujo was Rule V cut, sent back to Cubs and then traded for with International money.  That's the only Cubs trade I can think of that would make sense.

edit: not saying it was 2018/19/20 money, just that the O's traded slots to the Cubs.

Thanks.  The Araujo trade was made before 7/2/19, so the bonus slot would have had to be for the 2018-2019 signing period.

Makes sense it would be for 2019, but as others have mentioned this International thing is new to me.  They don't always announce specifics for International money so "future considerations" wouldn't have surprised me either.  However, considering the work going in today, it seems that they planned on using the money this year.  So old international confederate money makes more sense.

If I were unhappy about how things were going today trust me you would have noticed.

So far it looks like a perfectly reasonable advancement in the team's international effort.

So you are saying you were wrong about the Angelos' not allowing Elias to spend money in the international market? :)

I think most of us would be pretty annoyed if they hadn't, given how low the bar was.  This is a nice first step in the process.

Just going back through the thread and yes! You said something that was "nice". :)

I said he wasn't allowed to spend freely last period, which I still believe.

I expected the level of commitment we've seen today.

In the J2 2018-2109 signing year. Pedro. Araujo when he was reclaimed by the Cubs on our return of their rule 5 player. If they sis not even spend that money last year, they still got the good part of that trade.

    • Just in time, the AFL season starts today.    As a reminder, this year the O’s players are on the Surprise Saguaros, and include: Rylan Bannon Cody Carroll Dean Kremer  David Lebron  Mason McCoy Alex Wells  With Austin Hays joining once the major league season ends.   Kyle Moore (Delmarva’s manager) is serving as one of the coaches. The regular season runs through October 25.    I’m looking forward to having some more box scores to read!
    • Was Mancini bad enough last year to be in the running for national comeback player of the year?
    • I don't think this was a case of players and coaches overlooking Temple or letting the big wins get to their head, this was a case of a QB who struggled under the first pressure he saw and awful play calling, particularly in the red zone.  The fact that Temple tried to give them the game twice and the awful play calling kept trying to stuff it up the middle, when they have Piggy, McFarland and Leake. Are you telling me that anyone here thinks if they had spread out the defense, put Piggy in shotgun with McFarland and Leake that they don't think they could get a yard with a option play? My biggest concern is that the game calling is always going to be this unimaginative and awful in the red zone when the line is going to be dominated. Good coordinators understand their weakness and strengths and play to their strengths in personnel and don't try the cookie cutter old school approach. I'm also concerns that Jackson will continue to struggle when he pressured. He's not very mobile back there and once he was under pressure his decision making and accuracy dropped off significantly. That's a yellow flag for me. This game was a giant let down because they had an opportunity to go under a Nationally televised game ranked against Penn State but instead, looked like the same old Terp football program that shrinks as soon as it as a chance to shine. I also have concerns that Locksley did not over rule the play calls and also went for that awful two-point conversion. Had they gone for field goal and made it, the Terps could have gone ahead with a field goal instead of being stuffed twice on the goal line in the 4th QTR. It was one game, and people can improve and learn, but what I saw was a coaching staff and quarterback that appeared to be over their heads in their first real test of adversity.  Now if they can come out and play a good close game against Penn State it might heal some things, but only a win would erase this debacle.
    • My vote goes to all of the fans who actually watched a lot of the O's games on the tube.  Even if the games were used as 'background noise' while you were doing something a lot more pleasurable.  2 thumbs up.  
    • He has certainly hit for more power since coming back from AAA. Not sure if he tweaked something of if he's just running into more pitches, but the power increase has been the biggest difference in hitting of late. If the power is for real, and I'm not sure that it is until I hear he's changed some kind of approach, then he has a chance to stick around for awhile at 3B. He's still a below average 3B overall and will not to have a consistent jump in production to be considered a nugget towards a winning team in the future.
    • I think it clearly Mancini. Especially with the way the AS game went for him and it’s also a comeback year for him. I’d be very surprised if it were anyone else. Though Means and Villar would be solid choices if chosen.
