There are ways to circumvent both the draft and international free agency. DD is a smart man and made some quality additions in Gary and Danny. They should be able to hammer out the first few rounds. They were able to keep some of the better scouts on hand, so the back end should find a few pieces of rough stones.

I would not worry about it too much. It is an approach that would not go too far against the grain of the last few draft classes the Orioles have done anyway.

Remember this number is tied to round 1 to 10. Round 11 and every slot after can be signed for 100k or less. Depending on the amount of players signed, it can drive that 6.8 million in the low 8.0 million number with ease.

Assuming this is something new but dont know what. Could someone please explain? Why do the teams seemingly have different amounts of money to spend?

Basically each pick from 1:1 to 10:30 is assigned a "slotted" monitory number. Each pick is than added to create a total pool that the team can spend to sign those ten picks.

If you sign a player from 11:1 and on over 100,000, that amount is added to the pool for your "cap".

Basically this puts an end to Cameron Coffey type signings I would think.
