When was it ever decided that it was 3 years?  It was always reported 2 years.

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.baltimoresun.com/sports/orioles/bs-sp-orioles-chris-davis-retires-20210812-b2ex4xdfcre2hiuz2zimv5rlxu-story.html%3foutputType=amp
 

I missed this.  Maybe 2 years were the first reports but it ended up being 3.  Thanks for pointing that out @Frobby
 

So, that drops him from 8.5M to about 5.7M.  So, overall payroll for the way I see it is in the 29-32M range for the 5 guys off the roster plus the other 18-20 players on it.

I'm betting the league institutes a payroll minmum (probably 80 million instead of the proposed 100 miliion), and the Orioles come in on the dot.

This is definitely a good point.  I’m guessing if/when they do this, it’s a tiered system.  Probably tell teams they need to do this by a certain year but that it needs to start going up now.

Start at 60 in the first season and increase 10 per until it hits whatever floor gets approved...if any.

If they instituted something like this, I would think they would give organizations more than one offseason to get to that number.  It would hurt the lower market teams competitively to be forced to increase their payroll by 30 million in a single offseason. 

You'll end up seeing a lot of overpaid mid-tier/lower-tier free agents get signed to bad contracts like you see in the NBA after the better players turn down our confederate money.  Who is the Ian Mahinme and Andrew Nicholson of this FA class?

No..look, I’m not trying to be an ass here but I have answered all of these questions in various posts in the thread.  I’m just not sure where the confusion is?
 

My personal outlook discussed Mancini.  I’m not saying I’m right, I’m just saying that Mancini isn’t in my projections as guaranteed guys on the 26 man roster (at some point..don’t know when Adley and Grayson will be there but it will be quickly imo).  Santander is the same.

 

Lol, I'm not trying to be an ass either but your OP excluded deferments, then you said they are included. You also just went and changed the number for Davis after this post. Could you take four seconds and give me one number for deferments? Bonus points if you edit and update your original post.  Or maybe you aren't actually interested in a discussion?

Yes and then the very next post, CoC put the link to the 4 guys we owe money to…and then in my second post, I spoke about that money and the money owed to Davis.  
 

The number was the same foe the whole time until Frobby just pointed out that it’s 3 years and not 2.  I mean, simple math tells you that’s about 2.5M less but if you can’t do that (after I already did), that puts you at less than 16M for the 5 players not on the team.

Deferred salary for 2022

5.7m Davis

2m Cobb

1.5m Trumbo

1m  O'Day

1m Cashner

11.2m Total

The original spotrac link that CoC posted said 6.5M for Cobb.  
 

Looking at things, that doesn’t appear to be accurate, which is why I hate spotrac.

I think what WC is posting here is likely more accurate.  So, instead of the original thought of 18.5M and then just under 16M, we should be around 11 as wildcard is saying here.

That should put the payroll in the 24-28M range for the projected payroll based off of my expected roster.  Of course, not everyone is going to have the same expected roster.  

@wildcard, thank you for pointing out the discrepancy for Cobb

Yeah... almost certainly would be phased in instead of a hard cut-in...

At first I thought this proposal was unlikely... but in the end I think it may be used as a Collective Bargaining ploy to avoid a work stoppage...

lower the luxury tax threshold so that it hits more teams... create a significantly high minimum payroll..

 

luxury tax has a negative salary impact on superstars... (who are small in number)... 

minimum payroll has a positive salary impact on pretty much everyone else.  Might split the player vote between the haves and have-nots.... but in the end it makes the CBA easier to achieve.

I think this has a real chance of happening

Just went with 50-60 based on the $11M number for deferrals. $15M for prearb guys, $20M for arb guys, still leaves $4M-$14M for free agents. Could trade Mancini and spend a bit more.

$15 mill for prearb guys sounds high, since the O's like to give guys $10k raises or something similar.  Even if the $4-14 M figure is low, it reinforces my idea that Santander/Mancini should be traded/non tendered.  I can only think that Stowers is in the AFL because Elias thinks he will be a ML outfielder next year.  I could see the O's replacing Santander/Mancini w/ a cheap stopgap for $2 mill or less.  Looks like the best hopes for next year's team is a Cashner type signing that actually works and a veteran reliever, obviously not top tier.  At least one somewhat dependable 2b/SS/3B player needs to be signed and the O's could patch a lineup around them.

I can't see the MLBPA decreasing the luxury tax, at least w/o a strike.  Who knows, maybe they would settle for a system that increases player revenue.  I was thinking a system that increases salary minimums for veteran players (money would obviously have to come from somewhere).  NBA has a system like this.

    • There used to be a good record shop at Fell's Point, but it's been a long time since I was in there. I live in NC, so I'm not always record shopping when I'm in town. I did find a great book on the band Big Star while in there once. 
    • Recent NBA picks don't matter that much to an incoming coach.  They're attributed to the coach that they worked under, not the school IMO.   Texas Tech... their athletic budget is 2/3 of Maryland's and theyre in the red according to publicly available data.  Compare that to Maryland, 5 million in the black. They cannot outbid Maryland and don't have as many built in recruiting advantages.  And they've already proven that they can't necessarily keep a successful coach, or replace said departure with a splashy hire.   FSU... ehh.  It's a football school, they have older facilities, a $30 million deficit in the athletic department, and if Hamilton leaves/retires I really don't think they're beating Maryland for a job.  I 100% agree that they have been more successful recently.  But no championships, and their only f4 was in the 70s.  Not exactly a powerhouse history.   And as I said, other analysts like Jeff Goodman, Rob dauster, John Fanta, Matt Norlander have gone on record saying his is anywhere from a top-15 to top-25 HC position.  And those guys are not affiliated with Maryland.   Edit to add:  how many years of suck does it take for a school to drop off the face of the earth?  Indiana and UCLA haven't, and Indiana especially has been a hot mess for God knows how long.  The potential matters a lot. And I agree that Maryland fans are a bit delusional at times, but that (possibly delusional) expectation of greatness is also part of what drives the potential of the school.  And that potential is proven, not hypothetical.
    • Now is a good time to start this discussion. Heading into this season, what players have value or the potential to create trade value? It's obvious we probably have another year or two of selling a couple pieces. Below is my best guess as to who Elias would be willing to move for the right price. Cedric Mullins - Has a high price tag obviously. However, we know this year is a wash competitively, could be better next year, but most likely not play off bound. That would leave Mullins here for 24 and 25 to realistically compete for the playoffs. If we can get back multiple pieces in a trade now that could help us compete by that time AND can be controlled several years beyond, it's worth listening. Will he cheaper in the meantime as you avoid Mullins arbitration years. Good sell high candidate too John Means - Same as above. Plus Means is a bit older, probably at peak value especially if he had a good start to 2022. If you had a solid return on both Means and Mullins, it could infuse the upcoming wave of talent that could make us competitive for years Trey Mancini - Best case scenario, he looks like 2019 Trey and we swing him at the deadline for a solid prospect or 2.  If he plays like he did last year, you might get a Andrew Cashner type return Austin Hays - He's currently not on the block, nor should he be, but by chance he has a blow up season like Mullins did last year, then he would share the same circumstances in regards to service time as Mullins. We'll see if we cross that bridge Cole Sulser - He was good last year. He's controllable but a tad older than the Youth movement coming, so probably reaching peak value this year Anthony Santander- Already on 4th service year. Has shown flashes of what he could be. If he stays healthy and breaks out, he could fetch a really good return. This would be the year of peak value IF he performs. Tanner Scott - Seems to always be on the cusp of a break out. If he can harness the fb and slider a little more, some will want the LHP at the deadline Paul Fry- Depends on which Paul Fry shows up to camp. He could have been traded last year but Elias didn't like the return. He'll probably take it this year Dillon Tate - No rush to trade, but saw his name come up last year. Needs to get better, and if he does, he might be worth trading as he has similar arbitration status as Mullins and Hays Roughned Odor - If by chance he figures it out and hits a bunch of fingers, he'd be a trade deadline guy, but that was our hope for Maikel Franco Jordan Lyles- Apparently there's a pretty strong market for 5.00 era innings eaters. Another potential trade deadline guy, ala Cashner  Jorge Lopez - They paid a decent penny to bring back the inconsistent starter. If he thrives in a relief role, now would be a good time to trade the soon to be 29 year old in his fourth year of service  DJ Stewart - It's a now or never year for Stewart. He probably has a better chance of getting cut than traded as it stands.  Seems to have the OBP tool, has to hit now. If he can be an .800 OPS OF/DH, he essentially becomes a poor man's Kyle Schwarber. At 28, he'd be a peak value should he perform.          
    • Well, agree to disagree.  
    • The ACC that everyone loved is dead.  The old 9 team conference with true round-robin died long before Maryland left.  The ACC thought so much of Maryland that they decided Pitt was going to be its natural rival and wasn't going to ensure any annual home and homes with UNC, Duke, State, UVA, etc..  It was the last straw from a conference that never cared about Maryland. The move to the Big Ten has been great from an academic sense (look at the expansion of the engineering program), and the basketball has been fine (I'd argue that the BIG 10 has been deeper consistently than the ACC since Maryland left).    
    • I can't be the only one that thinks 6-9 is a black hole
    • Those 3 things do matter…but MD is the destination of those local kids.  Recruiting is so different now, especially with the power of social media.     There are tons of attractive urban areas, so that really isn’t much of a factor overall.  It may help vs some Midwest school in podunk but up against a lot of the power 5 teams, not as much. Lots of schools have top notch facilities.   I mean, look at their recruiting rankings. They have had 1 top 10 Class in the last decade.  They had more classes ranked outside the top 35 than inside the top 20.     Had you asked me 5+ years ago, I would have agreed it was a top 25 job.  It’s just not the case anymore.
