At this point, we don’t even know that there will be much of a MiL season next year anyway.

I would say that's crazy, but after this year, I'd say nothing is out of the question. 

The only thing they have going for them is they have a successful major league season under their belt with no deaths and limited interruptions (not surprisingly). Even if they don't want to have a season at all the stadiums and all the travel, they should be able to have a Florida and Arizona camp leagues like they should of had this year.

Aggravating.   Oh well, get it over with I guess.   At least we won’t get all excited by a great debut and then have the rug pulled out like with Bundy, Harvey and some others.   

I’m wondering why they waited so long? Since he never went to camp he’s likely had the problem since the spring

I was going to play conspiracy theorist and wonder if he knew he was having some issues prior to the draft.  Took the money knowing he'd potentially need surgery and who knows how he comes back.  A lot of talk was that he was unsignable.  Yes, I know they reach out to these guys before the draft to see what it would take for them to forego college, but still.

It happened during Fall Instructs.   He did pitch there.

    • Mejia is essentially Richie Martin.  I do like the idea of picking up Robertson and/or Adeiny Hechavarria. Going into camp with Martin, Valaika, Sanchez, Ruiz, Urias, and one or both of Robertson/Hechavarria should get us through the season.  We also have Stevie Wilkerson back in AAA,  and I suppose Bannon and McCoy are of that age of do or die; so they could get a shot. If the O's can spend 40 million over 4 years on the Korean SS Kim and spread the cash 3, 7, 10, 20 to alleviate the bill while we shed Cobb and Davis (would back loading it be attractive to a FA since Covid my cut into salaries again?).  I think its a good gamble because we are starting to build enough young SS depth in the system, yet it probably won't be truly developed for another 3 to 5 years.  When Kim's contract would be up, we would hopefully have a couple options ready in AAA/AA ready to go. Signing Kim would allow use to take a chance at being competitive in 2022 and 2023 while we wait for the our next star SS to develop for the long haul. If they go big and sign Kim, I would go with Sanchez at 2B and let Valaika, Ruiz, Martin, and Urias battle it out for 3B and a utility role or two.  You could still sign one of Robertson/Hechavarria to come in for that roster battle.  In the end, if you could space out Kim's contract, the next two seasons could still be fairly cost effective.  You are taking the risk on years 3 and 4.  If Kim ends up flopping that 20 million in year 4 would be a bummer, but at least the last few years of Davis and Cobb have softened that potential blow a little bit.  If we strike gold on Kim and our young pitching and position players start blossoming, it could get exciting by next season, which would be 2 years early based on my initial predictions with the rebuild.
    • I dont know about you all, but watching the stars of my youth playing out their careers while being an embarrassment to the game is absolutely heartbreaking to me.  I like how football does contracts with a portion being guaranteed and a portion, typically the last year or two not guaranteed.  Football contracts are typically much shorter.  I think it’s partially steroid related, but these baseball players seems to hit a cliff in their low 30s now.  Obviously this isn’t true for all players, but these massive contracts seem terrible for the game.     any thoughts on how to make baseball contracts better? The obvious answer would be to not give out foolish contracts, but that always happens as gms are understandably short sighted.  
    • Another gem.   Love hearing these stories of how it was in the old days.     https://blogs.fangraphs.com/a-conversation-with-1960s-slugger-jim-gentile-part-one/ https://blogs.fangraphs.com/a-conversation-with-1960s-slugger-jim-gentile-part-two/
    • Hope you are right.  Elias would probably go that high and Galvis would be a good defensive SS to have as an Oriole.
    • I’m going to guess that he will be lucky to get 2.5M this year and I would think that number will be high.
    • Did you guys know that the normal flu we battle every year is a strand from the Spanish Flu?  That was over 100 years ago.     In other words, there is a good chance that this is never going away.  So, what is the end game here?  At what point do we get back to normal and say hey guess what, this is a normal virus that we will have to treat like we do everything else?
