Gausman is probably coming back with this just to make sure he gets the maximum. In the end I think the O's won't get Poche and Gausman will sign. It's pretty rare that the O's don't get their man in round one. Guess we'll see though.

That sounds about as posturing as one can sound.

Derick Velazquez is requiring at least 500k to sign with the Orioles and forgo his scholarship to Fresno State. It remains to be seen where the Orioles and Gausman agree to a deal and how closely the organization want to over spend before giving up a draft pick.
I would not take that approach. You have to remember this is a business and not personal. It is a tough choice to leave something that you truly cherish. SEC baseball is another beast, it is family.
