Just for a fun exercise for how you'd improve the team

 

5 dollars: Carlos Correa, Trea Turner, Carlos Rodon

 

3 dollars: Joc Pederson, Chris Bassitt, Josh Bell

 

1 dollar: Brandon Belt (or another bargain LHB), Jose Quintana (or another bargain SP), Adam Ottavino (or another moderately priced reliever)

 

You can do any combo, 5/3, 3/3/1/1, etc

Can we put a bunch of zeroes behind those numbers, just for aesthetics? I have enough concern already that the title of this thread will also be the subject line of a John Angelos email.

I was for signing Pederson but not with the QO. Think I lean Turner and Bassitt or Turner, SP, LHB, RP.

Pederson and Rodon

 

Given the young depth of the team and the near ready guys I think I value a couple of top quality guys more than more numbers of guys.

Do we know the exact pick they lose for the QO assuming the Orioles don't win the lottery and get #17 for the first? If that's pick #50 or whatever I think the farm system's depth will survive without whoever they'd take.

Third-highest pick.

Rodon and Bell for me. SP is the biggest need so I'd take the top pitcher available and figure the rest out. Would prefer Abreu to Bell, he should be in that tier.

Competitive Balance B I believe. Helps that we get an extra 3rd for not signing McLean.

Not opposed to losing it to a FA, just not Joc.

       Rodon and Bassitt.  And I will give John the  8 bucks

I would go with Trea Turner (5) and Sean Manaea (1) and I'll use my other 2 to extend Adley into FA.

Turner and Bassitt, or Rodon and Bassitt.
