    Bundy and Gausman. The Orioles could have a heckuva staff before long.

    If Appel doesn't go here, I imagine he is going back to school.

    No I don't get what you mean. That's not really the way Tom McNamara and the Ms FO rolls.

    Is this where you think the new rules may apply. With numbers fairly locked in (or limited), signability becomes an even bigger factor for someone like Appel?

    It's Boras. He'll pitch him in the independent league if he can't get a signing.

    Do the Cubs take Appel? Do the Reds call Appel to see what he was asking for?
