The Rule 5 draft protection deadline has already come and gone, I'm pretty sure.

It has. He was drafted at over age 19 in 2017, he doesn't need to be protected until after 2020.

If you want to call it that.

Wow Moose, that's the first shot you have taken in weeks, you been away from the board?  I hadn't noticed.

There was a piece the other day, apologize I forget the source but think it was The Athletic, that said O's are shouting low minors (A-) for trade partners. Similar to the 2 DSL guys we got for Cashner and Villar. Wouldn't surprise me if the other 3 arms from LAA aren't very young. 

Have to see how they develop them. That is the key to a good bit of what they are doing.

Apparently the others that haven't been named yet are because they haven't been contacted.   Is there some metric you are aware of that says that the worse prospects tend to be harder to reach by cell phone?     Seems to me if anything the reverse might be true.   ;)

If the GM doesn't have the guy's phone number on record I'm thinking he isn't important.  😉

When I see four names and the one name mentioned is a 24 year old minor league bullpen arm I'm expecting the other three to be organizational depth pieces.

If it was two names I'd have some hope that the other name might become something at the ML level.

You following my thinking?

Sure, but 4 pieces at all is something. If we get a good reliever out of it and some lottery guys I call that a win.

Just when I think I'm out, they reel me back in.  Always willing to take shots at you, CoC, you roll with the punches pretty well without getting butthurt.  I'd call it a sense of humor but you also wear Birkenstock's.

You got lottery tickets and you got scratch off tickets.

I don't really care how many scratch off tickets Elias collects, even if they hit most are just a five dollar winner.

Ah, I'm assuming the hotshot prospect is screening out calls from his GM while in line at Starbucks but you do you.  Sorry, minor leaguer.  Maybe Dunkin.

This rotation will be fun to watch this year. We may let up most runs in history.  

I get what they are doing. Outside of Mancini there is nothing else to move.

It’s too bad Dan’s not a GM anymore. Maybe we could’ve gotten a replacement level outfielder, an extremely projectable LH pitcher, and a comp pick (I suppose the projectable left hander is possible, but my guess is this was mostly a salary dump).

Poor cell service in the Dominican.

    • Sorry, my dreams are going to be more worthy, then if Davis crushes or not.
    • I have laid out in another thread how I don't think that is remotely possible. The Pirates fans are being sold a proverbial bridge is Brooklyn by their ownership, whois trying to convince their fans a rebuild is necessary as a guide to make money off the team.  Nuttings number one asset outside of the pirates...Seven Springs.  How's that southern PA ski slope doing for ya? The pirates lineup has an MVP caliber player in Bell who put up a .900 OPS last year.  Brian Reynolds, Osuna, Frazier, and Newman are all capable of .800 OPS. Their top prospects are near MLB ready.  Kebryan Hayes is a phenomenal 3B talent.  O'Neil Cousins and Cole Tucker are ready with minimal time at AAA. Pitching is an issue, but Archer started to rebound last year, Musgrove vastly underperformed his peripherals, Chad Kuhl should be coming back from injury, Trevor Williams has proven to be more than capable and Mitch Keller is a top pitching prospect (top 10 MLB).  Put it this way, the only Orioles starter who would make their rotation is Means.  Their bullpen has some very solid pieces.   I think there is little chance this team is the worst in baseball barring a huge sell off.  And if that happens the fans in Pittsburgh should riot.  
    • If someone takes him and the O's eat 90 percent of his salary, that's still a win. I think it is a near impossibility too but as I said: a man can dream.
    • Not a bad list.  For me, while I like most everyone on the list, I think there is a noticeable drop-off in upside at 17 after Rom who is in front of Bannon and Sedlock.   It seems likely or possible that we will lose Mountcastle, Hays, Diaz, Baumann, Kremer, Lowther, Akin and Harvey off the top of this list - seven of our top 12 unless the FO really slow-plays the promotions (or the guys don't produce and lose prospect luster).  If our FO slow-promotes, it would be the clearest indication to me that we are likely in tanking mode again next season.  Perhaps not full tanking, but more of a "we are promoting guys to the majors, but not supplementing them with quality free agents".  Assuming the guys are doing fine or well in the minors, I sure would like to see Baumann, Lowther, Akin and Kremer tested in the majors this season.  I think it is important for their development that they start their major league experience sooner than later if they deserve it and to see what we have in them entering 2021.   If our 2020 draft has the same impact on the top 15 of the above list (see AR, Henderson and Stowers), then it seems likely that next year's list would be of comparable strength, but perhaps not a much stronger one without existing prospects (most likely candidates for that step up to include IMO Henderson, Adam Hall, Darell Hernaiz, Toby Welk, Drew Rom, Stowers and then perhaps a drop-off to Watson, Janvrin, Dashbach and a couple others) stepping up or some international prospects starting to impact the list or quality prospects received in trade (Mancini).
    • It might not be dumb, depending on the situation and how much salary the Orioles eat.   But I’m not going to waste my time arguing about hypotheticals that are extremely unlikely to happen.     
    • Not all the owners though.
