If we don't sign DL, can we still go for the other little lefty, Logan Allen, with enough money?

If they don't sign Hall they lose his slot money, which also means that they lose the ability to go 5% over on his slot money.  No idea what it will take to sign Allen but I wouldn't be optimistic if he is a strong commit.

Saw both FL Intl and AL State so not large schools but we need more money to be sure.  I ass ume we can't use the savings from other 1 - 10 signings either right?

I don't think Hall's slot money has any bearing on whether we sign Allen or Jones.  The only way we can use Hall's slot money is if we sign Hall and in that case, the money would obviously be used to sign Hall.  The only possibility of signing Allen and/or Jones, IMO, would be if we were unable to sign Hall and use the available amount remaining from the under-slot signings after signing Hall #2 and any other over-slots.

I'm quite pleasantly surprised, barely overslot.

Folks were throwing around numbers like 3.5 to 4 million.  Most of us thought the savings from the senior signings were going to go to him.

I guess he wants to play pro ball.

High ceiling guy with fairly substantial risk.

    • Side note on Stowers, did someone give him a lifetime supply of Wheaties this year?  His sprint speed went from 27.0 fps in 2022 to 28.4 this year.  I used to wonder if he'd have the range for left field at OPACY but he's kind of gone crazy with the speed training.  He's not the first guy to take a leap on sprint speed so i kind of wonder if the O's are emphasizing this more.
    • He's about 1.5 years younger than Dean Kremer, and got his college start with the same San Joaquin Delta Mustangs, but Kremer was a couple years before him there. He is the undisputed minor leagues reliever Wins vulture this decade.
    • If the Orioles play the Dodgers in the WS I don't care how much that ticket is, I'm going.
    • We should've won it all in 2014!  We just couldn't get the big hits!
    • The pitching has been really good. I know we are all basically nervous about the bullpen, the effect of losing Bradish, etc, but man the pitching so far has been outstanding. The offense is great but less surprising to me. 
    • I'm glad for Manny that Cease is helping SDP stay in the mix, and rooting for them to get their shot at the Dodgers in the 5-game format. It is just a baseball barstool debate, but would you give Corbin Burnes to get Dylan Cease this week? If it goes bad, Seidler's successors fire Preller and introduce austerity measures for the partners, I still see Dylan Cease as a strong consider to be Burnes' successor on the 2025 Orioles owing to that sweet, sweet 1-year term. One of the better baseball geek observations I've heard about the Padres is they have a poor understanding of what makes a fastball good apart from velocity, and were he acquired I'd have some hope BAL could get a little better overall production out of him than CHW-SDP have.
    • Interesting tid-bit.  I was watching a Jomboy video this evening (Three Things).  He was reading a Redit post by a guy  that identified 5 1-tool players in MLB (they have one tool that is well above average and the other 4 below average).  That's not the interesting point.  In the comments to the Redit post, the same guy lists the 9 5-tool players in the league.   Henderson and Cowser were both identified as 5-tool players.   I found that interesting.   I wonder how Westburg stacks up to Cowser, because I would guess his hit tool is better?
