I'd like some quotes from him but OH MY GOODNESS if true.
Fourth-overall draft pick Kevin Gausman will not sign contract with Baltimore Orioles
Would be truly shocking. Has to be a leverage play, right?
That's why we wander and follow La Vie Dansante...
Leverage play is conventional wisdom. I almost hope that this would have never came out because I know I'll be disappointed when he signs.
Look at that, they added the quotes for you, man.
I think this would be an absolutely terrible decision for Kevin Gausman. It does not get much better than the 4th pick. He is leaving millions on the table and taking an extreme risk if this is true
Hell yea. He did say, "we'll see what happens" though.
Agree with this but I would gain an incredible amount of respect for him. If he does it for the reasons mentioned then I love that he is sticking to his principles and HIS happiness. The Orioles would go apes#+t.
won't' happen. he's done at LSU. looking forward to seeing him in the bigs in a few yrs
You know what those quotes from Gausman are? Leverage. He is looking for money above his slot value so he is putting the squeeze on Baltimore
Would be nice, but I think you nailed it. Probably using the ole High School "I'm going to LSU, trick".
