    Which just adds to the anger the players have in general. They feel like they are getting bent over left and right by the owners. When the players were getting 10 year deals they overlooked it obviously, now that they arent, they are quite angered. I bet the owners rake in a good 60-65% of overall revenue, and because of the owners acting like poor fuckers, this strike will probably drastically change that to something similar to other sports leagues.
  2. Wait til 2019 plays out. The trade wasnt just for 2018 you know right?

    Front offices are also manipulating things left and right whenever/wherever they can. Just as much as the Players/ Agents are probably not getting what they want, the Owners arent exactly doing things the right way with these moronic service time moves, which I get but are not in the spirit of the rules.

    Man that strike in 2021 is going to be fun.
  6. Actually if I'm a Royals fan I'm fairly intrigued to see what team does. They are trying a semi throw back to the 80s approach with speed pretty much everywhere.
  7. The Ozuna trade was great from my side. We gave up a piece we were going to make into a bullpen arm (and we have tons of young starters) An outfielder we had no real place for. And a couple of lesser prospects. About as fruitful as the Goldy trade this winter, tbh.
  8. I'd love to know how the Orioles are going to improve some 15 games that many of these idiotic sites are predicting when the team is basically worse than last year.

    Probably because people feel is biased because its run by MLB.

    I think Callis is amazing at what he does, so if he contributes I cant go wrong. Baseball America relies largely on team writers/scouts especially for their reports, so its a good indication of how people consistently watching these kids feel about them, which I like. I'm pretty sure Callis also contributes to MLB Pipeline in some ways and Mayo is pretty damn good also. Keith Law at ESPN is pretty good, but I refuse to pay for ESPN insider because its largely a hot steamy pile of shit, so I cant say anything about that.

    I dont follow Fangraphs top 100 list though. Only ones I really pay attention to is MLB Pipeline and BA.

    Like I said, I didnt know. :lol His lack of bat control is why he is no longer a top 100 prospect obviously.

    One factor in the International Slot money is that I think about 8 teams were limited to only spending 300k from past penalty. That wont be the case in 2019-2020. How that changes I'm not sure, but the teams that were limited were trading slot money like candy, because they literally couldnt use it.

    I dont believe Diaz and Guzman were on the top 100 list when they were acquired. I mean if the Marlins find the corpse of Kolek and move him you can say they traded a top 100 prospect then too right?? I can't recall if Harrison was on the top 100 list. If I recall it was only Alcantra and Brinson on the top 100 list when they were acquired. At least on MLB Pipeline. I mean I could be wrong and its just from rogue memory.

    Realmuto traded to Phillies

    Ya but if he can get 3 mil more from the Orioles....

    Anderson to play 3B

    Grandy Mags Brinson ?
  20. not really. we have plenty of outfielders in our system that are better than him. But nice try. Now if Galloway could play 2b/ss then I might agree.

    Shocking that Joe is a moron. Money can only be carried over if a signing is voided for reasons out of the teams control. The only way they are signing Sanchez is if he were to take less money to come to Miami. The most the Marlins could have left would be $3,594,450 provided they have acquired the max they can. The Orioles have nearly 6 mil they could give Sanchez. The next rated SS prospect got a 3.4 mil bonus. What they are planning on doing with the rest of this money is beyond me, and I'm not even sure how much they have left. Reports were after signing the Mesa brothers is that they were close to empty. Joe reported that the Marlins had 4.3 mil before their spree to acquire money for the Mesa brothers. They spent 6.5 mil on them two. My guess is that this 250k they acquired is more for a lesser prospect or two they would like to still sign. Or else they are morons. Here is the only exhaustive set of rules for the International Free Agency that I have found. https://www.thecubreporter.com/book/export/html/3559
  22. Just SHOCKED he was not picked up.
