Do you think this is this still leftover 2019 J2 $?

This line from MLBTR suggests yes, I think:


The other two trades helped build the Pirates’ 2019-2020 international pool money. The Pirates sent left-hander Domingo Robles to the St. Louis Cardinals and right-hander Connor Loeprich to the Baltimore Orioles in separate trades for international pool money.

If you have money left over and no one really left to sign and you obtain an arm you like for asset you won’t use, how can anyone be upset by that?

I don’t care what he said in the past.  Plans change.  Things are presented to you and you decide to pivot off of your original intentions.  

It would be worth getting upset over if he DIDN’T do this.

Exactly. I don't personally understand the fuss, especially when almost all the trades we made this year added to our young international talent.

Before the analytics...23 yrs old, 7 HR in 124 MiL inn, Solid K rate...nice pick up for little cost.

I'm going to go ahead and make a big fuss out of the O's once again trading international slot money.  Didn't Elias specifically say he wasn't going to do that this year?

Nope. It's last year's pool money slots. And Covid. Things change.

I have no idea.

It is all just such a convoluted mess.

I'm not actually all that upset about one deal and if Elias did specify last signing period and not this signing period than he didn't even go back on his word.

Just folks have expectations of me when things like this happen.


I still think trading international slots for 20th round college pitchers isn't something I'm in favor of.

There is no 2020 slot money. It's a January deal now,

    • Because I the idea of a good, veteran defensive SS anchoring the infield while we--hopefully--feature a very young pitching staff next year getting their feet wet at the Major League level. I am not a fan of Velazquez and am skeptical about Martin. I guess you could sign someone like Hechavarria, but it's going to be hard to find a good defensive shortstop that is not completely useless at the plate for the cost of Iglesias (and we certainly aren't going to pay any more than that for someone for next year, nor should we).  With the young pitching, I want to give them as much as possible to succeed. To me, that means good defense up the middle and at least some offense. I don't want them always expecting to have to be nearly perfect to have a chance of getting their team a win. Having some wiggle room from time-to-time, in my estimation, is helpful. Of course, I don't have data to back that up, but that's my thought.
    • 2021 midseason moves will probably be crazy.   The whiffing in the NYP suggests a conservative initial assignment, but also one where hopefully he's Barry Bonds grown man to the children he'll be playing with.  A good Stowers '21 I think pushes through three levels; two is making par, maybe.
    • From the underrated guitarist department...  
    • I saw Stowers multiple games with Aberdeen in Brooklyn in 2019.  He just glides across the OF in large strides (which makes it all the more impressive that Janvrin pushed Stowers to RF - which gave the Aberdeen pitchers two OFers who could track down everything that possibly could be tracked down).  As I posted at the time, we sat with Mark Dashbach's father and had to cheer for our three Stanford guys with him.   I hope what the Os saw with Stower's swing is fixable because there's a big hit risk here for a second rounder IMO.  This pick has the downside of the OF equivalent of a Cadyn Grenier.  It would be an enormous boost to our OFers at the bottom of the system if Stowers turns into the player the Os envisioned when drafted.
    • This is really good. Sideys from something I was listening. I saw Edgar, right near here in Chambersburg. Very excellent! Don't know what event that was, Ringo introducing.
    • That's a good way to look at it honestly. Stowers is certainly a projection guy with a decent ceiling, but he has a high risk profile on whether he can get there or not.
    • I would guess 162. I doubt we see full stadiums any time soon, but they should be able to play games and draw TV revenue now that testing is already set up and more is known about the disease.
