I agree.  What is Callis talking about? lol

Technically nearly all #1 picks are underslot, but Holiday isn’t an underslot deal, he was going in the next pick or two regardless, and he’ll get most of the slot

The kid looks like he wants to play, he'll sign for something a bit under slot.

He will definitely sign. But unlikely to save much money with the pick.

I am happy with this pick; I would have also been happy with Jones.  I think they are both athletic, well-rounded, high-ceiling players  Jones is more likely to stick at his current position and play elite defense but I think Holliday has a better idea of the strike zone and will move quickly through the system.      They may wind up saving a bit of money on this pick but I don't need to see that to be happy with the pick.

I think that’s fair. I think we probably save a few hundred thousand buckaroos. Maybe 300-500K or so. 

Right…maybe a little more but they will save some money.  No way he’s getting slot.

Remember, regarding the draft budget and signing slots allow a team to exceed their overall slot budget by, I think 5%.  The O’s have about $800K to,play with before losing future picks.  Even if Holiday demands his full slot amount, the O’s have some flexibility.
