Schoop is the more pressing concern right now.   We've got an extra year with Gausman, so I could see them waiting to check out Gausman's performance this season. 

Schoop needs to be dealt.   We waited too long with Manny.   Schoop is the best trade chip we have right now.

Gross negligence inside this "organization."

Very sad. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

It's the waiting to check out player X's performance that kills them.

Assuming Schoop was willing to sign, how much did last season raise his price?

I can see it now, Gausman has a breakout year and is suddenly too expensive to sign long term.

And yet, when confronted with negligence, it's the duty of the press to unearth why it exists. Or to perhaps bring forth some level of accountability.

It's like these bums never went to journalism school. When you get an answer that doesn't make sense, your next question is "why", not "where we going for lunch and margs, fellas?" 

Drives me nuts. I know these guys work hard and are better than this.

The MASN folks essentially work for the team.

The Sun folks have been on their heels for years and are afraid the team will cut off access.

Britt has other irons in the fire these days.

National writers don't seem to care.

Exactly. If Schoop repeats last year, he's basically unaffordable. 

"We're the Orioles. We claim to be small market, but spend $160 million on garbage. We can't afford our young stars, but we don't employ any smart tactics typically found in other small market teams. We give Davis $160, but we won't spend to address our actual weaknesses. We impose strict rules upon ourselves that eliminate avenues of talent acquisition. We don't extend young players for reasons completely unknown to anyone. We have no idea who is running the team next year. We ask for too much in trades, but readily trade young pitching for trash. WE MAKE NO SENSE"

I'm convinced Meoli is the only writer in town worth a damn, but I agree the Sun aren't exactly sicking their dogs at the Warehouse these days. I don't want a Boston media environment, but for god's sake, can I just get a couple of follow up questions from anyone willing to try? It's pathetic.

He wasn't. He got his bridge money elsewhere.

I won't disagree with you.  I would prefer to have Gausman signed for a bit.   He's young enough that if we were to ink him to a 5-year deal that we'd like get our money's worth for it.
