It's not surprising that the draft is looking different than many mock boards due to the lack of 2020 data to go off of due to the lack of games to evaluate.
Elias is clearly not afraid to go with a guy with one plus plus tool (power) which is a bit surprising for the #2 overall pick. His hit tool is probably plus as well, but the K-BB ratio prior to his short junior year makes him a bit of question mark when he has to face professional pitching on a nightly basis.
Elias and his guys h
Well thats good! Maybe they asked Davis....But why would he say no? They already collected more money than they will ever be able to spend. Honestly, It likely improves his tax situation as he likely can keep more later
He still gets $17 million which is probably more than they will pay Santander and Mancini combined. If they wanted them together to defer 3 million dollars and pay it on 2022. Why not ask CD to do the same thing. I know future money is worth less...But to me its a detriment if its counted against their available money for payroll. Hopefully when the Orioles are sold the Angelos' family will have to payout Davis with an escrow that doesn't affect the new group
