Someone the people who reply to Roch's blog blow my mind with their ignorance. One guy was actually is upset that we are spending overslot money. "$400K on a 9th round pick? Im beginning to question their financial decisions etc etc"

Apparently someone doesnt know much about drafting....

This is promising:

The Orioles agreed to sign fifth rounder Ashur Tolliver for $200k, according to Jim Callis of Baseball America. They also agreed to terms with Randy Henry for $365k and Ryan Berry for $418k. All three bonuses are higher than recommended.

I thought we would get 1 of them and maybe be fortunate to get 2 of them. Instead, we got all 3

I don't even read the comments on Roch's blog any more because half of the people that comment have absoleutely no idea what they're talking about.

They contradict themselves all of the time and their idea is because we don't have a $150 mil payroll that the Orioles are cheap and Andy McPhail is the devil and purposely trying to lose because we haven't started winning the second he took over.

Half??!! That's generous.

Yeah, the only comments I read are Roch's responses.

Nope, had to keep a low profile on this one. Great job on knowing the kid and playing the game by Joe on this one.

I agree, Joe seems to do a great job in knowing his selections and getting the price down. I thought it was over. Glad to see he got his man.

    • Yeah he's in a no win situation, really. Now that the world knows that a bunch of banks are sitting on losses, people are subject to panic and the bigger issue that's looming is all of these  0% + .75 bps loans giant companies are going to have to refinance in the near term but can't afford the service payments on.  The retail sector is in for a reckoning. Double whammy of eroding top line due to inflation and inability to negotiate a new refi. They'd all better hope this is a "soft landing" and a quick rebound because if it's not it could get very ugly. We'll all be shopping at Amazon, Wal-Mart or Target!!! (not that most of us don't already do that.) 
    • Even my cold WBC heart was warmed watching the end of the USA-Japan game culminating with Ohtani vs Trout. 3-2, two out, and Ohtani throws the perfect slider for strike 3. Damn. That was fun.
    • I haven't watched any.  International competitions really never have greatly interested me,  be it the Olympics, World Cup or whatever.  I also don't have a current TV service so watching them would be more difficult than I care to go through right now.   I should have MLB.tv in week or so,  then I'll get all the baseball I want!  
    • With just over a week until Opening Day, who makes the final MLB roster?  Safe = 18: SP: Gibson, Ivin, Bradish, Kremer RP: Bautista, Baker, Perez, Akin IF: Mateo, Mountcastle, Urias, Henderson, Frazier, Rutschmann, McCann OF: Santander, Mullins, Hays Prediction: SP: Rodriguez RP: Wells, Voth (especially with Givens injured, I think these two are definitely on the roster), Bauman, Politi IF: Vavra OF: McKenna, Stowers
    • Unfortunately have not really been able to watch I wish they showed more ST games on MASN.
    • Prospects Live has their first scouting book out and Gunnar is on the cover.  Please be no jinx. Please be no jinx. Prospects Live
    • I have no doubt that the WBC games are 100 times more electric than a spring training game.  ST games are very relaxing and fun, but they are the opposite of intense.  I’m still surprised at the viewing disparity, though I’ll wait until tomorrow night before considering the poll results comparable since I started the WBC poll a day earlier.
