The Orioles need a few starters, so whether or not some think Feldman is the answer this won't prohibit them from trading for one of our starters.

Gonzalez and Tillman have been good, and when Chen returns that gets them to four decent starters. While Gausman has struggled, his peripherals are good and it's not inconceivable that he could put up some good starts down the stretch. That's not to say they couldn't use another starter, of course.

Hmm...strange teams are allowed to trade slot values in that case when they aren't allowed to trade draft picks. Seems like the international slots should be more in line with the draft slots as well, but they are generally half of what a draft slot is. Appears to be discriminatory against the international players.

Like the draft, you can pay over slot, you just can't pay more than your allocated total.

The whole thing seems so needlessly complicated to me that I look forward to a draft in the future.

Anderson's bonus would have eaten up the Sox' entire international allotment more or less. I see no good reason why an allotment for international signings should be less than what a player from the amateur draft can sign for. Just because a guy is from the US he should be eligible for a larger signing bonus? I don't think so personally.

It amazes me that Hahn has not done anything to improve this team the last couple of months.
The Sox are going to make some moves. Be patient.
