Are we in the hunt for any 5 stars??

Trevon Duval is from Wilmington and is now a teammate of Fernando's in Florida. He's been to MD campus at least a couple times.

Billy Preston is from the west coast, but he's now in school at Oak Hill in Virginia.

MD is very much in the mix for both those guys, but both are still wide open. In Duval's case, he'll probably only play college for a year or two. So if Melo is back for a 4th year and/or if Cowan is for real, then Duval might find a better match elsewhere.

If I had to predict, I'd say MD will be in the mix for both those guys, but they'll both decide late and not pick MD. I'd also predict that MD will have a very good recruiting class without them and will have a Top-16 roster in '17-'18 without any 5-star freshmen.

    • Up 550,000.  I’d hardly call that awful.  You can’t lose 100+ games three times in four years and have a pandemic in the other and expect to recoup all your attendance from the last time you were a playoff team in two years.  
    • We have gone over this repeatedly. Hicks' salary through 2025 is locked in based on his contract with the Yankees. Unless someone wants to pay him more than the 9.5M per year his Yankee contract will pay, he will simply sign for the minimum and the remainder of the 9.5M per year will be paid by the Yankees.
    • I mean I do agree with the many people who say here that if Cowser or Kjerstad or some other hitter emerges as good or better than Santander, then yes of course it makes sense to trade him.   But I just don't trust prospect rankings.  Don't assume a player will be as good as high as he ranked until he proves it over a period of time.  In 2016 Jorge Mateo was the Yankees top prospect, just ahead of Aaron Judge -- just to name one example.  For this reason I think Santander hangs around a little awhile -- unless the O's trade for or sign a replacement outfield bat prior to the season -- in addition to trading Santander.  
    • But the Rays did lock up some of their best hitters -- mainly Evan Longoria and Wander Franco.  I know Santander is not at that level, but I think there's a good chance Santander is with the team to start next season.  I think it's a mistake to assume someone is ready to take over for him until he proves it.  If not then trade for or sign someone who is -- if he must be traded now or pretty soon.  I don't trust prospect rankings.  In 2016 Jorge Mateo was the Yankees top prospect, just ahead of Aaron Judge.   Also, the Orioles don't really have the pitching in the minors the way the Rays always seem to.  Can't imagine Means or any decent pitcher getting traded for that reason.  And for a long time the Rays weren't a very good hitting team, which I think is a big reason the Rays never tried to lock up their position players until guys like Evan Longoria started to emerge, though there may be a bit more to it than that.  
    • 49ers QB Brock Purdy had UCL repair with InternalBrace. Here’a a summary comparing the two. I’m sure Bautista and his medical team will closely consider the best course for his circumstance.    https://www.armoredheat.com/armored-heat-blog/tommy-john-vs-ucl-repair
