From Roch: "The international signing period begins on Jan. 15 and Baseball America’s Ben Badler reported that the Orioles will give Dominican center fielder Braylin Tavera a bonus in the $1.5 million-$2 million range, the 18th highest in baseball.

Tavera, born in February 2005, ran the 60-yard dash in 6.47 seconds at a Dominican Prospect League showcase."

Pretty cool to be back in the hunt. I'd rather see them dump a couple of megabucks on the best international pitcher. This is where they said they'd pick up the pace, right? A million or three is chump change. Take the chance where we desperately need a talent infusion. Half our superstar kid OFers profile as CF. You can't tell me there's not a Dominican pitcher better than just about anybody we have. Maybe this Badler guy is just blowing smoke though.

In counties where Donald Trump received at least 70 percent of the vote, the virus has killed about 47 out of every 100,000 people since the end of June. In counties where Trump won less than 32 percent of the vote, the number is about 10 out of 100,000.

I'd, love them to work their way into Cuba. You could pave whole expressways with un-mined gems from that place.

Only 19 Cuban-born players on ML rosters last yr., as opposed to 64 from Venezuela and 98 from D.R. (USA Today)

We could become shithole central. Think of the marketing.

Apparently, we are the favorites to sign Cuban infielder Cecar Prieto.

That actually sounds more like an Elias move. College aged shortstops are a favorite.

O's listened to me. Mike and I worked out a deal for Cesar to defect from their Communist tropical paradise.

Read that he's 22 which is kinda old. But down there, that means he's probably been a pro for 8 years and could lead Bowie in hitting.

A little more about him. He's definitely a talent.

Might mean he was 22, when he turned pro 8 years ago. Thanks for the article.

I thought Havana Pete had a no-Cubans policy.


Progressives lack compassion and tolerance. Their self-aggrandizement is all that matters.

Decent people cannot fathom the amoral cruelty of the Biden regime.

Far from it, TBP. Once invited Castro to Baltimore to watch a game and O's played a game in Cuba.

I had no idea about Henry. Didn't he get a sports hernia or something here?

Roch:

The international signing period begins today and Baseball America’s Ben Badler has the Orioles linked to the following players:

Braylin Tavera, OF, Dominican Republic

Leandro Arias, SS, Dominican Republic

Cesar Prieto, 2B, Cuba

Edwin Amparo, SS, Dominican Republic

We could have the first actual news since the innings eater was signed. Must be 16 years old to sign.

Prieto is 22; already posted about him. O's paid only paid $650,000; maybe not the superstar we thought.I think they'll try to get him into minors chain, here, ASAP, given his age.

Melewski:
The Orioles’ signing classes under Perez and Elias are now starting to impact the club’s top 30 prospects list. Hernández is ranked as the Orioles’ No. 19 prospect on their MLBPipeline.com top 30, and Basallo is No. 24. On that same list, outfielder Luis Gonzalez of the Dominican Republic, who signed for $475,000 on July 2, 2019, is ranked No. 28.

Also, they can sign unlimited bums with under 10k bonuses, without it counting against the pool.

One of the things that's really clarified itself for me this year, is how much early recruiting counts in this international gig. They sign at 16, but they're actively recruited from puberty. That, and the top recruits have a free agent kind of vibe. They can sign anywhere they can get the dough. I'm sure there's that layer of their pimps to negotiate through too. Speaking of relationships. Who knows what the hell the moms get on those last three mothers days. Who's watching?

Given the poverty in some of those places, a little bit of money can speak very loud.You mite sign the next Clemente for a couple of tortillas.
