Spotrac has it as this one. Not that they are reliable. Just a tool.

Seems like there is room for lots of confusion with international signings. 

It's 100% from the 2018-2019 period, he's been playing for the DSL team from before the 2019-2020 period opened.

All of the above. Just was listening to Bordick and Hunter hyping Richie Martin like he was a future superstar. 

Ha Ha, I missed that entirely. I thought you were referring to Gunnar!!

Nope. No confusions. People just want what they want. I think we have a good handle on the signing periods. It is just the folks who blog about it that get confused. Luke is pretty much on this.

All 27 players are either pitchers, SS, OF and 1 catcher.  Not that they will all stick to SS, but that lends me to believe that they were all some of the most athletic players on their respective teams.

That fits the same model we saw from Elias during the Amateur draft.

As a first step this is a really good day for the organization. By signing 27 guys on day one, it showed they were not getting the leftover guys that they had in the past.

Unfortunately, the more I read on how this process works it's apparent that we may not really see how good Perez/Elias are until 2020 or really 2021 J2 period. The way the system is set up, teams are now making "behind the scenes" agreements with 14-year olds now which means the Buscones now have to start "training" talent at 12 which means they are now "scouting" 10 year olds. It really is all quite ridiculous, but it's how the game is played over there.

Perez may very well be laying the groundwork for these 14-15 year olds for the 2020 and 2021 signing periods now. 

As for the talent they brought in, if you use signing slot bonuses of the amateur draft, the best the Orioles signed were 4th-5th round talent (4th round slot was $538,000 and 5th round slot was $402,000 this year).

The Orioles top for signings by bonuses were reportedly: (As reported by MASN/Melewski)
* OF Luis Gonzalez, 475-K
* SS Leonel Sanchez, 400-K
* LHP Luis Ortiz, 400-K
* RHP Moises Chace, 225-K

So let's call that an additional 4th rounder, two 5th rounders, and a 7th rounder ($235,100 slot).

While these kids are mostly 16-years old and it's hard to know how they will develop, there's definitely nothing wrong with adding additional talent into a system that needs additional talent.

    • There will be many new norms learned from this by businesses.  I was reading about how workflows have streamlined in some industries because they’ve been forced to move everything between depts electronically. The article was specifically about tv show production (writers, producers, editors, graphics, animators, etc). It noted how much cheaper and time efficient things are now without the need for physical space. 
    • I think most O’s fans would like that option. There is a reason though that they haven’t yet gone that route; it’s not as profitable as the current situation.  It also would make situations like this even more economically devastating because they would lose all of their subscriber money. At least with cable they diversify by getting money from subscribers that stay on despite no sports.    This could go the other way too, where many people cancel Cable because there is no baseball and cable gets to see how many people really were only having cable for the baseball.  But will the casual fan realize they can live without it and not miss it. To be honest, it’s not really at the forefront of my mind these days. I’ve kind of just moved on to other things to occupy my time. Easier to do too when the O’s are going to be terrible too. 
    • So, it's Matrix Baseball and you are "the one"...
    • I was a big APBA guy.    Managed to play 64 games of the 1969 season for the entire AL one summer when all my friends seemed to be away.     I remember almost all the stats were very close to reality but for some reason Reggie Smith had about 25 homers after 64 games.   (In reality, he hit 25 homers over the full season.)   I think his card was on steroids!    Actually, there was nothing on his card that would lead to that kind of result, the dice just kept rolling in his favor.      
    • Or if they go bankrupt new owners could offer streaming services.
