Orioles' 2010 Draftees Signing Tracker (updated 8/12)

Recommended Posts

So is catcher his permanent position or can he move to 3B or 1B?

He is a catcher right now, but if he doesn't continue to improve behind the plate he may be athletic enough for 3B or OF...

So nothing new? This is pathetic that 1 out of the top 12 is signed.

Just be patient.....

It's starting to get past the point of "just be patient". They were "close" on Gonzalez two weeks ago, so maybe he (and maybe some others) have agreed as well and it just hasn't been announced.

I didn't realize that it was said we were close on Gonzalez, thats good news...Solid prospect IMO

I'm not too excited about him (his stuff isn't great and he doesn't have much projection left), but he still should be signed ASAP. No reason to drag it out this long.

Also, with this little time left it seems unlikely to say the least that Urban, Esquivel, and Robinson will sign. Which is not a good situation by any means.

I don't understand your reasoning? Because we don't have enough time to work so many deals at once? I disagree, I keep saying this, search last year's draft and see how many we had signed......

True, but even last year Hobgood, Townsend, and Dalles signed pretty quickly. Why a guy like Bywater hasn't been signed yet I can't understand.

Last year there were reports that there had been negotiations with Coffey, Ohlman, et al. This year there's nothing. It's like people have just stopped caring.

I don't know why Bywater hasn't signed, but he will. I don't think it makes much sense for him to go back into the draft in a year stronger with college pitching. His value is pretty high right now....

It seems to me that last year all of our "overslot" signings did not become official until August and many of them right before the deadline. Does anyone have a list of the dates in which players signed last year? We still have 3 1/2 weeks until the deadline, so IMO it is not time to panic yet.

Givens will never sign. We lowballed him by not treating him like Tim Beckham, who Mychal knows he is better than. We spent our money on overslots. Why do we waste picks like this!

    • Teleworking!  Thank you COVID. 🤣
    • I still think he played Matt “Guitar” Murphy in the Blues Brothers.  But the credits say Matt Murphy played Matt Murphy.  Watch it again and tell me it’s not Eddie.   Now waiting for Corn to post “it’s not Eddie”.😀
    • I agree with you that people use the term in a loose way.  I disagree that they expect six or seven straight no-hitters.
    • I enjoyed that. Gives hope that he’ll improve his control in a pretty meaningful way. If so, his prospect status moves up somewhat significantly.
    • Lamar has at times been awful outside the hash marks yes, and certainly leaves a lot to be desired there. I too have my doubts as to how much he’ll be able to improve in that facet of his game. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t. But it’s abundantly clear to everyone except you that the passing game, particularly outside the numbers, has got to improve for us to win a championship. It’s just the way the league is now. And being that Lamar is going to be our QB for quite some time, the only way to improve said passing game is by infusing it with more pass catchers who can create separation and/or present mismatches, and/or beat press coverage. And Because of the perception of Lamar and our scheme that you eloquently highlighted in your post, it will be difficult to attract those pass catchers via free agency, leaving the draft as the best and perhaps only means of acquiring them. So I say address the pass rush and the o-line via free agency and spend a first rounder on a potentially elite target for Lamar. I like Pitts because he can do all of the things I mentioned above that will help keep defenses honest and keep the middle of the field less crowded for Lamar and the running backs. All pretty basic logic. 
    • They are going to keep expanding the passing game.  They have said this.  Part of the reason they haven’t is the lack of weapons.     I don’t think they get Pitts at 13 but if he was at 13, they would take him, for sure.   Just as they would take one of Waddle, Chase or Smith if they fell. And they certainly could trade down but they also could trade up some as well, if a weapon fell that they wanted. Tons of options but it’s very clear that adding more weapons for Lamar is on the agenda.
