I always thought that was delusional paranoia (sorry, CoC).    

I'm fine.  I never said it was likely.

I think a lot of us were at least entertaining the possibility after the first three rounds.

I find it interesting the money for the last 2 picks came quick, but it's been a while since we've gotten any data. 

If I remember correctly, not signing pick 1 means we'd loss the slot pool value.  So if we knew what it was going to take to get 4th and 5th rounder, I expected to hear more on the others by now.

There were reports draft day we already had deals set up for the first two guys so I wonder if they just waiting to announce it.

Do they need the under slots signed before announcing two way over slots?

Not as long as it works out in the end.  Bad things happen if you can't get the underslots signed tho.

This is more or less what I was looking for.  If Heston Kjerstad doesn't sign, they lose the 7.7 mill that was slated for his pick.  Making up an additional 2.2mill (current over for picks 4/5) from the other 3 picks doesn't seem very likely with about 6 mill left in the pool.

That's why not seeing at least Kjerstad surprises me, unless they are delaying numbers to assist negotiations for other 3 picks?  Aka not revealing available money remaining.

Ahem, please put on a mask next time.  This is not a Zoom meeting.  

I don't think the O's are stupid.  They must have worked the numbers out in advance with the players' agents.  I'd be very surprised if they aren't able to sign everyone.

Yep, this is what I think. Also, agreement with Kjerstad could be a negotiated floor+. Like, he'll get at least $5.5M AND any remaining pool money once all of the other picks are signed.

I guess they know the number for kjerstad since they not leaving any ability to go to slot.  I thought he was already done on draft night.  Guess they waiting for the games to start to announce it at home in front of the empty seats.

My understanding is that they can exceed the allotment by 5% without penalty.  If Weams' numbers are right in the OP, I believe that means the orioles can go up to $6,218,865 for Kjerstad if Servideo signs for slot.

I feel confident in saying the O's have never gone over their pool allotment under the current version of the draft.

Are you saying they aren't allowed to go up to 105% of allotment without penalty?  Or are you saying that they are allowed to, but haven't in the past.

I don't think ownership has authorized it.

    • Barry Bonds did ok...    
    • If Ayala can improve his shooting that would be awesome.  Today was a good start.  I think Wiggins needs to improve his handles and slashing game to be the scorer that would need.  His catch and shoot game is pure.   Gonna need Marial to improve his offensive game as well.  We already know he will defend the rim (theoretically).  Needs to work on his conditioning.  Ultimately I think our lack of interior presence will be our demise, unless Smith and Scott really ball their face off. We have that Swiss guy Revas as well, I'm not expecting much from him though.  The lack of backcourt depth also might hurt unless Dockery and Smart grow quickly.  Can Ayala be the primary ball handler and distributor?  Maybe. I don't think this team will fall off as badly as most think.  Like you said, Morsell/Ayala/Wiggins will keep us in most games.  If Scott and Hamilton (who was a top 100 recruit going into BC) can step up then I think we could surprise some people.  I see us sneaking into the tournament as a 7-10 seed.  
    • It’s a supply and demand thing.  Whether someone offers X amount of dollars is irrelevant.  The Os And their structure, could use his bat and his production.   Most teams don’t have that combo of at bats and money they can spend on a player with his skill set.     The Os do...and the idea that other teams chose not to do it is irrelevant to his value to this organization.  The idea that they may be looking into Puig (conjecture) and brought on a LH DH type at REINFORCES the idea that this is salary driven, not producing driven imo.     My only argument with this decision is that this isn’t solely or even largely driven by roster management despite what Elias says.  He is lying for management.
    • Your tone of authority when you are clearly in a fog is admirable.  Anyone who thought his arbitration number was a bargain, as you suggest, could have offered a warm body to secure his services before he hit the open market.  What won't make sense is if any team offers him 2M or more now that he's available to any team that wants him.
    • There are three vaccines, possibly four or five, if you trust the Chinese and Russians. Every factory on the world is going to be producing them. We may delay the start of spring training(only three months away) but I don’t think the season will start late. We may have distanced crowds, though.
    • No, it absolutely is the formula and what’s he’s worth.  That’s a fact. However, there are only a few teams that need a DH, so it’s not surprising that the market isn’t there..plus, you have announced that you are cutting him, so why trade for him with so little completion?
    • Nevin may get reps at 3B, LF, and DH.  Shaw fits in well as a 1B, LF, DH option too
