    Orioles miss out on Kim

    Kim signs will the loaded Padres for 4 years with 28 million guaranteed. The posting fee was only $5 million dollars.

    You get a player that is ready or nearly ready to contribute in the big leagues.

    Whether a SS or a 2B, Kim would be roughly the 7th highest paid player at that position.

    My complaint here isn’t just Ha-Seong Kim and obviously have no idea if this guy will make it or not.

    My point is that the Orioles payroll is ridiculously low. Kim is a resource that likely ranks in the Padres top 2-3 prospects for the equivalent of a the 8th or so overall selection signing bonus. This is the type of place the Os should be taking a shot IMO. Rather than monies being stuffed in the pockets of the Angelos family never to be seen again.

    Its very possible they're looking into more signing their own but we do need SS/2B and I would've liked to have seen it happen. I'd like to see Richie Martin step up to become our everyday SS until some our minor leagers are ready. 2 more years of that albatross Davis contract. Ugh!!

    Also the west coast is closer to Korea which may have played a part.

    I’m not sure what our plan is going forward. Clearly we’re still in rebuilding mode but I actually enjoyed watching the young team. They played with excitement but we need a big name to lead by example
