As I type this, the Orioles have just six hours to sign first round draft pick Kevin Gausman.  As mentioned this week, Gausman is the highest remaining draft pick who has yet to sign.

Things didn’t look good for the Birds earlier this week when Gausman told reporters that his heart was still with LSU.  But the team proposed a new offer mid-week and now Jon Morosi of says that he believes the “Orioles will have [a] deal with Kevin Gausman by day’s end”

Thank goodness.

The hostess dough nut eating starting pitcher could go back to LSU for his Junior year and a shot to win a National Championship, but he risks at least $4.2 million as the fourth overall draft pick.

We’ll find out at 5 PM.
