Figured we could use a separate thread to keep track of the signings.

@BenBadler
The Orioles have signed Moises Ramirez, a 16-year-old shortstop from the Dominican Republic.

@CamdenDepot
In news that completely doesnt matter:

Victor Victor Mesa liked the tweet announcing Moises Ramirez being signed by the Orioles.

Seems like solid information to me.

The Cuban players almost with out fail take top $$ offers  

If the Orioles want him, they have the most $$.  They can make it happen.

@CamdenDepot

I have been told that 7.9 pg the Yankee's 8.75 MM international bonus pool money is already dedicated. So they won't be getting any Mesas.

So do Cuban mothers give their kids the same name? Is his first name "Victor Victor"? What the hell is up with that.

I'm talking out of my ass here, but I think that is a fairly common thing in several different cultures.

 

Rougned Odor, for example, has a brother named Rougned Odor, who is also in the Rangers organization.  Different middle names, the one you know is Rougned Roberto Odor, the other is Rougned Jose Odor.  They are Venezuelan.

 

A guy I work with is from Malaysia, he has two brothers, and all three have the same first and last name (at least first/last as we consider it here).  They each have different middle names.  All 3 go by their first/last names professionally, like people they work with call them by the first name, but when they are at home their mother calls them each by their middle name.

I'll never ever get tired of the "my other brother Daryl" references if we happen to sign both guys and they each make it to the bigs.

Mackus Macus is kind catchy. 

 

Too bad you weren't born in Cuba.

If you don't get the elder one, the trades look pretty damn bad.
