One - incredible work James.

Two - I know some here will prefer Colas, but I'm just so happy to see this multi-front aggression for talented players. All these guys have real potential, some have even ability to be a piece sooner than later. It's such a breath of fresh air.

Great work. Feeling pretty good about the organization lately with some of the recent hires, rumored international signings, and Shirley's talking points from SoxFest.

Thanks guys. There was a lot of news last week. I felt the need to sum it up. I'm really curious to see what they end up doing. The Colas situation is so strange at this point too. Nobody really knows. I put this thread on the main page if anyone wants to combine. Thanks for reading.

Merged these topics, but left a link so everything won't get split up.

From the link, "Until he returns with the permission of the commissioner, he will not be able to play in the United States as well as other domestic teams."

Armour Square/GRF is your one-stop Cubanox beisbol destinacion. Even Yasiel Puig knows that.

Japanese team could let him out of his deal. They could also post him. The problem is, the posting date has passed. They could post him again in December. At that point, a tean would have to have enough international bonus pool space to sign him or wait until July 2nd 2021.

Sounds like SoftBank is exercising whatever rights it has to either keep him on their team, or, at the very least, negotiate some sort of compensation for his release. It's difficult to tell how much leverage they have with respect to the former, since it seems that Colas is currently physically missing and has probably fled the country, but my guess is that this is more of a message to MLB teams saying, "hey, this guy is under contract with us, and we are asking that you respect that, as opposed to simply signing this guy as if we don't even exist."

How would they allocate the "posting fee deal" to JPN in terms of the full cost?   That wouldn't be considered part of the team's yearly limit?    So the White Sox could give SoftBank $15-25 million, theoretically?

The player is getting like less than $5 million. These rules are all changed so I'm not really sure.

I thought for Ohtani the posting fee had to come out of the salary. 

Edit: I should say that I mean the posting fee was included in the agreement as counting toward the cap.

Where would oscar colas rate by fv from what you’ve heard/seen? And any rumors on who lead(s)?

Eric A Longenhagen

35, he'll be on the list of whoever signs him in the honorable mentions. Had a director comp him to a lot of the DH-only type 4A guys

I'd much rather have the 40 FV types I haven't ranked yet (Bies, Chourio, Guzman, Lizarraga) than Colas
