Just heard from Roch on Twitter that Jordan announced that 2 of the top 10 picks have signed, although he isn't ready to reveal which two those are.

He also said that "we're not trying to set any records" as it relates to the Bundy situation. Could envision it going all the way down to the wire.

The two players who have signed are not:

Bundy

Esposito

Delmonico

Ruettiger

Jones

Wilson

that leaves Wright, Simon, Taylor, and Howard. Most likely Simon and Howard.

To be consistent will the O's pronounce his name Sea Moan like Fredo???? ;);)

The teams were already dropped at the end of last season.

It means there are less organizational types and you have better prospects overall on the teams.

The only problem I have with it is that it makes it harder for us as fans to track the draftees who are not quite ready for Aberdeen but may be too advanced for the GCL. I think that they certainly had too many teams but I wouldn't mind seeing the Orioles share an Appy league team with another franchise.

Honestly though, if a player is not good enough to play at Aberdeen after a year in the GCL, is he really a prospect anyways? Very few prospects develop that slowly anyways. The only thing where I think it hurts is with a few pitchers, but at the end of the day, these guys should be ready to compete at Aberdeen by 19 or they are starting to get behind the prospect curve. Real prospects tend to identify themselves very quickly. Saying that, I would have preferred to have ditched the GCL team and kept the Appy League team because it's a little more advanced and the GCL league is really a brutal environment with the sun, humidity and t-storms.

I agree. I suppose it was more cost-efficient to close Bluefield due to the fact they already have the minor league complex/Extended Spring Training in Sarasota. Bluefield/Appy League definitely had a great competition level for prospects.

    • Well this isn’t accurate and you aren’t talking about several others who have done well like Pablo Lopez or Brian Anderson.  There was and always is many different ways to build a team.   I made several different mentions of ways to do it and you are focused on a JJ Hardy like SS as if that proves some point.     How about all the misses from the actual GM over the years?  Are you making posts after posts about that?
    • Never said I was always right but I am right a lot and guess what, now all of you are starting to see what I did…that this team can contend in 2023.  Most posters on here laughed at that.  Most felt you can’t bring up guys yet because we are too far away. That is, was and always has been bs.  If they had added talent to this team, we would really be looking at something. I kept saying, adding talent a year too early is not a bad thing.  The pushback I got was that we were 2+ years away. Ironically, for all the stuff I get from most of you and how I’m negative, I’m one of the few that felt contention was far closer than most thought.  It was always going to be about the commitment of ownership to put the team over the top.  
    • Bullpen has been very good, but it's reaching a breaking point due to the starting pitching not going deep into games.  
    • No, being dense is acting like talent doesn’t rise to the top.  Talent always gets playing time.  Every single team battles with this.  This is the thing you and so many others don’t seem to understand. There is nothing unique about this idea just because the team is rebuilding. The best teams in baseball play unproven talent.  The best teams find a way for young unproven talent to get at bats even if they have vets there.  It always happens and it happens every year..acting like you can’t have both is both wrong and naive.
    • They will break, just look at Tampa, most of their pen from the last couple of years are on the IL. Got to find a way to get starters to go seven innings.
    • Looking at the roster on the Orioles' website, it lists Bautista as being 6'5" and 190 pounds.  Brian Baker is listed as 6'6" and 245. Cannot imagine that Baker is 55 pounds heavier than Bautista.  Wonder when those weight readings were taken.
    • His stroke is so quick when he’s going well, fun to watch.
