Good work.  First step is to use all your resources.  Now we hope we can develop the guys they got signed.

It is a far cry from when the Orioles used to trade the slotting $$$ for players the other team did not want or care about.

Didn’t realize they only have $100 left! This is great if true!

19 y/o Cuban just declared a FA, expected to land the biggest bonus for a pitcher since the new international bonus limits were put in place.  Old friend Sandy Gaston the current record holder at $2.6M.

Don’t know any specifics. Can’t be much if it’s not for the class in January.

It feels like he is a left over from the last signing period.

Longenhagen projecting the Orioles get shut out of his top 33?

Bob had the O's connected to Luis Almeyda in September.

He's not on that fangraphs list, but Pipeline has him 20th in this class.

Thanks.  I thought I remembered that we were connected to someone.  Obviously can be a lot of variance in these lists given the challenges, youth, etc.

 

Was just surprised this list didn't connect Orioles to a 2M+ kid.

Almeyda will break the O’s signing record, it’ll be more than $2M.

It seems weird that he left the US to live and play in the DR. Was he born there? Though thinking about it, if he can sign for $2M+ at 16, rather than having to wait until after HS and hope he can get the same bonus out of the draft, then I guess it makes sense. On top of that, if/when it's time for him to come play in the States, he should have a much easier transition off the field than other int'l players.
