I don't think ownership has authorized it.

OK.  I wouldn't know about that issue.  I'm just saying that my understanding is the amount that the rules allow the Orioles to pay Kjerstad without incurring a penalty (if Servideo signs for slot) is $6,218,865.  If the Angelos family restricts Elias further than the rules do, I guess Kjerstad would have to sign for a lesser amount if he wants to play for Baltimore.

The O's have spent their full pool before.  They have not exceeded it to my knowlege.  I don't think the 5% overage is in play.

Are you saying the rule has changed and it is no longer allowed?  I understand that you don't think that ownership will authorize the overage.  That is not my question.

The rule did not change. Orioles have always spent their pool under the new rules.

Can anyone explain the ramifications of Servideo not signing? With no news as to whether or not he is inking a deal, just wondering if the Orioles face any penalties at this point if a deal is not agreed upon.

No, they wouldn't face any penalty if Servideo doesn't sign.  The amount under-slot that Kjerstad signed for more than makes up for the total overage of the two over-slot signings.  Our total slot allowance would be decreased by the slot amount of the Servideo pick, and we are presently under that adjusted slot allowance with all of our draftee signings.

So the class as a whole comes in $222,000 under slot.

Per Spotrac, among the 19 teams who have signed all of their picks, the Orioles join the Mariners ($304,400), Braves ($131,000) and Pirates ($87,100) as the only teams to go more than $7,300 under slot.

8 teams went more than $191,000 over slot. Led by the Tigers at $615,900 over.

I know some will say the Orioles went cheap, but I think they had their eyes on a couple of guys that would have taken more to sign and then they got taken before their pick. 

I haven't seen what the guys before Kjerstad signed for so it's hard for me to say what they could have had. Honestly, I like the idea of a left-handed power hitting right fielder and there was no better left-handed power (according to most draft experts) than Kjerstad. 

I wanted Asa Lacy, but I did not do enough pre draft home work to really have a strong opinion one way or the other.

Didn't the O's have the highest slots total available - had to have been at least 2nd highest.  So percentage-wise, them being $200ish K over is a tiny percentage.  The amount and the percentage aren't even worth discussing, imo... which is why I'm discussing it. :)

O's had the largest pool.

Tigers spent more money though.

The Orioles pool was $13,894,300 and the Tigers was $13,325,700.

The Tigers went $615,900 over their pool (plus they paid a 75 percent tax on that amount).

    • I agree. Forget slugging, these guys just need to get on base. If Hays can have a good season in this environment, these two can as well. I don't like the "dead ball" excuse here. 
    • Wow - I was hoping Peralta would at least get a cup of coffee with as long as he's been here but his numbers are pretty awful this year..  Hope they both can catch on somewhere.
    • The other key numbers are $$$.  While I'm not looking to save the ownership money, if we extend Mancini, that's $10M (or more) per year whereas Mountcastle is still pre-arb. If we can keep the bulk of the players cost very low, it provides more flexibility for some big names when/if we do go out in free agency and compliment this team. 
    • As I recall, he started the season off really hot, missed some games because of a lat problem and never heated up again up until this week.   There's no way he can sustain this but hoping he can be a little more consistent.    He does seem to be managing the strikeouts better so far this season compared to last which is also encouraging.
    • Despite the down offensive year, there are players rising above that and having really good seasons. So, to try and uplift these guys because their OpS+ is above average ignores the fact that we are relying on them and that they are supposed to be much better than that.   Mullins should still be traded imo.
    • Exactly. Everyone busted a nut at $7 million, but we're not operating on a level playing field as the rest of baseball. We have a hitter's park reputation, we have a losing team that is very young, we play in the AL East. If people don't want the Matt Harvey's and Wade LeBlanc's of the world, the next tier is Jordan Lyles and we have to pay appropriately for that relative to the position we're in. Which is not a position of bargaining strength. We needed innings and that's what we paid for. The savviness comes when the Orioles took a chance on late-2021 Lyles being the new & improved Lyles. So far they've been right. He's been much more competitive than I thought he would be. 
    • Mullins did hit it decently well the other way I believe twice last night, but Gerrit Cole outside pitches probably made that a necessity more than any kind of intention.    This is a consolidation year after the Too Good to be True one. Despite the recent slump, last week at the end of the hot streak he was still flickering into the Top 10 in AL position player WAR. I don't think he's gonna be able to hold off Trout to keep his All-Star spot though. For all the frustrating day-to-day variance, to me Mountcastle year-to-year feels like a low variance player.   Hyde in the postgame last night clarified Mountcastle rather than Mancini pulled for McKenna defensive switch since he was higher in order, and it was more about delaying a McKenna PA as long as possible in that contingency.
