@Luke-OH when can we start expecting to see news on guys signing?

I don't see it now, but Elias basically said they'd get on that task as soon as the draft was over.  At least a few should start coming in the next few days I'd imagine.  The 4yr seniors at least.

How do i know who has signed? Most teams signed at least 1 player, The Yankees already signed 7 players. It is amazing how the Yanks, Rays / Dodgers sign studs year after year, I am soooooo jealous.

 

Huh, what in the world are you talking about? The Dodgers actually failed to sign their top pick last year.

The signings will be listed here, it usually takes a couple weeks, no reason to worry, most are probably already signed or agreed to deals but they haven’t been announced/reported.

Ballinger and Beuler weren't missed draft picks.  Who on the O's are that caliber.

Are we talking about the 2019 draft? And if you would like to have a serious conversation, please spell the players’ names correctly.

I made a general observation that the Yankees, Rays and Dodgers have had historically great farm systems through drafts, if you read my first comment. I am not going to list every player that that they drafted ever that you said.  I am tired of people looking for one negative and ignore the rest of what is written. To you all that have so much pride about the O's and being defensive.  But be honest, the O's have not had a great farm system since 1983  I don't care what you want to believe, but the O's don't measure one bit to those 3 teams.  Those teams have intelligent people who can recognize talent even if their pick is #30 or #60, they know what their doing,  Even if the O's draft a player with awesome talent, they don't know how to develop them, especially pitchers like those teams.  So don't like me, but the truth hurts.

I don't believe that the Yankees have had historically great farms through the draft.  They had that one really nice stretch that included Jeter and Co.  Before and after that stretch, not so much that I recall.  How many guys did they have on their OD roster that were their own draft picks?  I know Greg Bird and Judge, anyone else of note?

I will say that the Yankees and Dodgers have smoked the O's when it comes to International players.

You just went on and on about a bunch of stuff I never mentioned in my response. I never asked you to name a bunch of players, I just asked you spell Bellinger and Buehler correctly. 

You intially asked if the Orioles had signed anyone yet and the those other teams had signed a bunch of studs, I tried to explain that the Orioles will very likely sign all their top picks and actually the Dodgers didn’t sign their top pick last year.

If you want give your opinion of the Orioles farm system or their player development, start a thread in the minor league message board. If you want to talk with substance about the players the Orioles drafted this year, you can do it here.

    • Are we willing to take on cash to buy a prospect?  Instead of paying Correa $30 million a year, we could buy CJ Abrams.    Mancini and Santander for Myers, Voigt, and Abrams.    We’d take on 60% of Myers $23 million, 60% of Voigt’s 5 million. That’s $17 million to buy Abrams plus, trading Mancini and Santander. We could trade Myers for whatever since we’re paying him. Stick Voigt at DH the rest of the season and hope he rebounds or DFA him in the offseason. 
    • Unfortunately Peralta seemed to regress back his crazy wild days again after working so hard to keep that under control. Kinda started to like him a bit last year and though the might be ok in a bullpen role, but he's been a disaster this year. I never was a Lebron guy. Very hittable fastball and nothing to get major league batters out consistently.  Cruz was a gangly, shockingly unathletic looking first baseman who had no business making it out of the FCL. His best quality seemed to be that he looked like a good teammate who was positive on the field. He had a decent raw power tool but couldn't transition that to game power against higher level pitching. 
    • For years I've regarded the Opening Day shortstop as a proxy for how Elias assesses the team. The 2023 market lacks info until after the World Series who is in it in a couple important cases.   The rest of this summer we'll see if the Club confers >50% shortstop games on either Henderson or Westburg. Mateo a reasonable tryout while you are marking time, but very long odds to be one of the planet's 30-40 best SS options next spring.    Today Gunnar might be #11 or #33 or a third baseman. If Adley and Grayson lead a magic carpet ride the next two months, not kidding about whether Yusniel Diaz and Dean Kremer are enough to rent Xander Bogaerts.    That magic carpet would push the 2022 Red Sox into the 2018 Orioles basket.
    • Peralta just never had the results to match the reported mid to high 90's velocity.   Lebron had great strikeout numbers but it's interesting that he hasn't pithed since once or twice early in the season and was old for AA last year.   Josue Cruz showed a lot of power in the DSL but always had high K numbers.  He struck out 48% of the time this year at Delmarva and was very shaky defensively at 1B with 7 errors.   I guess either Higgins or Moises Ramirez, who've both been disappointing in their own right will get the majority of 1B starts now at Delmarva. Lebron only pitched 1/3 of an inning at Norfolk and got bombed but I suspect he's damaged goods.   He did strike out 91 in 61 innings last year.   At 28, he wasn't a prospect but maybe a guy who had an outside shot at getting a cup of coffee in the bigs someday.
    • I mean, moving the wall back (more so than the dead ball) has had a quantifiable effect on Mountcastle's stats. Plus he's been hurt. He'll be alright.  Definitely concerned about Mullins. 
    • And his WOBA is at .401 and his HR/Fly ball rate is at 28.1% which is back to his AA numbers. 
    • I was definitely thrown off by the thread title, but he could be nontendered at any time and this prevents that, so in that technical sense you could call it extension.
