Named after one of my favorite MD towns, so I'll take it.

But seriously, a 14th round pick just last season. Kinda crazy. Hope our new talent evaluators see something here.

At least you got something.

This is basically a salary dump but it’s better than nothing.

Better than non-tendering. He was old for the NY Penn league but halfway decent numbers. He wasn't a hopeless guy like we got from Philly who was only drafted to go way under slot. At least based on bonus he was a legit draftable player.

Go sign someone passable for SS to a one year deal and I'll be fine with the overall approach. Villar himself isn't the focus of the ire. We just need some real MLB players. I'm fine with another real MLB player plus this longshot MR prospect over Villar. The difference between some 1.5 to 2 WAR SS and Villar is fine. The difference between some -1 to 0 WAR SS and Villar is not.

I wonder if they are going to sign Addison Russell. 

If so, the Domestic Violence history is going to be awfully hard to not think about everytime we see him.

I wonder about Russell too.

I also wonder if they go after Yolmer Sanchez.

Lucas did get a 75K signing bonus, which is rather high for a 14th-round senior signing.

They better not.

They are actively advocating for domestic abuse if they do. Maybe you can justify selling your soul a bit if you're gonna be good. If you are awful on the field and full of bad individuals in your organization...that's inexcusable.

I would forever lose all respect for anyone currently in the org if they sign him.

Interesting he goes to Miami, another team that doesn't want to spend or compete this season, and would seem just as likely as the Orioles to balk at paying him $10m. But at least they got something in return.

Villar has an amazing season...we trade for a 23 year old kid who hasn't shown crap...awesome.  Thank Christ, the Ravens keep my mind off this freakin' team.

Travis Shaw has been non-tendered by Milwaukee. Had a down year in 2019, but had 30+ homers in each of the previous two seasons with the Brew Crew.

Gausman was also nontendered ... We need a starter, do you think they have any interest?

@NathanSRuiz

The Orioles scouted Easton Lucas heavily leading up to the draft, Elias said, but weren't able to get him. Elias said he profiles as a starter, 89-92 mph "hopping" fastball.

Ha. I'm just sad this "controversy" is over. I just hope someday, somehow our fans can get over this brutal loss.
