  1. Past hour
  2. Benintendi is not chopped liver but our future prospect strength appears to be the OF. If we are moving Machado, I would be looking for TOR and our future SS help.
  3. A few thoughts. Britton, if healthy, to the Nationals seems like a perfect fit. Even though starting pitching is our greatest need, we must focus on best prospect available. Britton for Victor Robles and a good pitching prospect like Fedde works for me. However, I would also be okay with taking Robles and just a good bullpen arm like Koda Glover. One strategy I think is possible with Machado is a two pronged approach. We should be playing the Yankees and Boston off against each other. Both will be in the playoffs. Both have holes at 3B. It will not only help the team that gets Machado but it will hurt the team that doesn't get him. I would try to create a competition bidding war between the two teams. I would also try to tie in Chris Davis to a Machado trade which, of course could hurt the haul coming back. However, either team can use him at 1B/DH for this year again, assuming he gets back healthy and in time. The main target on in the Yankees farm system would be Gleyber Torres (yes I know he just had TJ surgery) with a pitching prospect like Chance Adams involved. The main target on the Red Sox would be Rafael Devers with a pitching prospect involved as well. The Orioles future team in 2019 might be something like this. 1B Mancini 2B Schoop or Mountcastle SS Gleyber Torres or ???? 3B Schoop or Devers C Sisco LF Robles CF Mullins RF Hays DH Santander (Trumbo dumped) Pitching Bundy and a lot of question marks which is what we have now.
  4. I don't know to be honest with you. I've never liked Duquette or his Shuttle Mentality in micro-managing a roster. As for Buck, I believe he was the right man for the job back in 2011 but his shelf life has expired. I'm extremely concerned about 2019 and beyond. I am firmly in the Blow It Up Now camp.
  5. Matos especially.
  6. I saw him playing a beach bar a few years back.
  7. Jeez! Messed up the date on my own birthday!
  8. For nasty foot odor problems there's nothing better than Odor-izzi!
  9. I don't know, I remember a time where I thought Larry Bigbie and Luis Matos would lead us to championships.
  10. Today
  11. by Adam Pohl Mullins Has Big Night In Loss Mullins Homers in Four-Hit Game but Baysox Fall 7-3. Cedric Mullins homered to leadoff the game in a four-hit effort but the Baysox fell short in the series opener falling 7-3 to Erie Saturday night. Erie had the first five batters reach in a four-run, eighth inning rally to break open a tie ballgame. The late lead was the first of the night for the SeaWolves. Mullins started the night with a bang. He lifted a solo HR down the line in right field. He would have three more hits on the night including a bunt single in the ninth inning. In the sixth inning, tied at 1-apiece, Adam Brett Walker launched another titanic clout. The blast was a 430-foot shot to left centerfield that gave the Baysox a 2-1 lead. It was his third in as many games and fifth in ten games with Bowie. Later in the frame, Erick Slacedo singled home Austin Wynns with two down to make it 3-1. But Erie tied the game with two in the sixth inning before their four-run eighth. Jesus Liranzo worked three scoreless innings for a second consecutive start in the game. He walked four and struck out three. Austin Hays made three fantastic catches including a full extension diving grab in shallow right-center field. by Will Deboer BIRDS DROP EARLY BOMBS, WIN FOURTH STRAIGHTBillingsley, Ring, Woody go yard in first three innings of 9-3 winSALISBURY, MD - The Delmarva Shorebirds went yard early and often to beat the Lakewood BlueClaws 9-3 on Saturday night at Perdue Stadium, stretching their season-high winning streak to four games.Down 1-0 after Darick Hall’s RBI double in the top of the first, Cole Billingsley mashed a leadoff homer to right in the bottom of the frame, the Shorebirds’ (3-0, 32-39) first leadoff home run of the season.

For the third straight game, the Hillcats got on the board first with a second inning marker. Following three straight one out singles off Brian Gonzalez, Haggerty grounded a ball to shortstop.

  12. Or he was struggling because he was hurt...
  13. If you make either of those trades you'll regret it.
  14. We should thank every GM who didn't want Mancini thrown in a trade. Those are the true heroes of our season.
