...so what does this mean for our prospects?

I’m wondering if we could see a different strategy with respect to service time than we usually see.    You’ll have a fair number of players who might have been deemed major league ready by the end of a full season, but they won’t be ready now.     But you could do things like put DL Hall on the 60-man roster and let him pitch 2-3 games towards the end of the season, knowing that in 2021 he’ll be spending at least half the year in the minors so you’re not really messing up his service time.     I think it will be interesting to see if teams do some unconventional things like this, particularly the Orioles, who may as well experiment.    

I think it really depends on what they decide to do for the Fall Leagues. If they cancel it, then no problem with doing that. But if they have the “expanded” league like they were talking about, I could see them just having them workout and then go to that league instead.

Yep, I get it you're a close the world down and hide until this is all (maybe never) kind of person. I get it, because I've seen some of the skewed information getting pushed lately by the media.

We are just going to have to disagree. 

I think it will be completely fine to have these camps and for the ones that end up getting COVID, few will have any kind of symptoms that will cause any problems past a few weeks. 

Honestly though, I believe MLB will end up not doing this because almost all corporations are either pandering or taking the least risk as possible right now. 

I gotta be completely honest though and say I just don't care enough anymore to get upset. You could tell me tomorrow that the MLB season was cancelled once again and I'd be ambivalent. 

I'd rather see baseball this year, but if it doesn't happen for either COVID or safety reasons (since most cities are violent, unsafe hellholes right now) I'm not going to lose any sleep.



 

Really? When is the last time you’ve been to a city? Pretty ignorant from the site’s owner, to be honest....

I think Akin was going to be up for good this year anyway, so I'm not sure he fits the profile/model @Frobby was describing

Bashing the guy that runs the site? Wow. way to win friends and influence people. Btw, I agree with him so use a few more downvotes.

Like I care.

Clearly my intent was not to “make friends”....just calling out something that seemed in pretty poor taste. Kinda surprised to be the only one, but eh 🤷🏼‍♂️

Not really worried about down votes, lol....

    • Very interesting idea.  I'm guessing you'd have to pair him with a top notch recruiter.
    • They are not going to get a meaningful return for Trey. If they trade him before the season starts, it will be mainly a salary dump. If he has a good first half and they trade him at the deadline, they won’t get much back for him because of his limitations, and because the receiving team only have him for a couple of months. It is possible that Elias may be able to do some Effective horse trading and get an unusual return for Trey, but it remains to be seen whether Mike can do that kind of trading.
    • I'm glad to see him go. Sure he had some good to really good recruiting classes but his offensive scheme was terrible. It seemed they constantly went on scoring droughts regardless of talent level on team. And they always played down to competition or came out looking horrible in the first half and that's on coaching.  Not to mention the way they play offense is just incredibly boring to watch.
    • If you get the right coach, you can win, whether or not you have a "top 25" job or not.  Look at what Nate Oats has done at Alabama, or what Mark Few has done at Gonzaga.   I wish Maryland had hired Porter Moser last spring, but that ship has sailed.  I would give Sarunas Jasikevicius serious consideration.  He's an alum from the Gary Williams days, he played in the NBA and became an international star, and he's currently the best coach in the European leagues.  
    • Then why are multiple basketball analysts calling this job a top-25 job and saying they think that Maryland has a legitimate chance to snag someone like Oats or Enfield or Musselman or Bruce Pearl?  This isn't my opinion - I actually don't think we can lure away Oats because we can't pay him what Alabama can.  But others think that this job is enticing enough that we could.   Edit to add: you haven't actually given me any reasons why Maryland is worse as a HC destinstion than the 5 schools I listed.  You literally just ad hominem in response.
    • Thanks for putting those together. I think not too bad is about right. Only a few below average but zero in the very good/elite range. Looks about average, maybe a little above if you squint.
    • If the work stoppage lasts until June, then some of the minor leaguers may be ready for promotion and give the weakest Orioles some competition for at bats and roster spots.
