    Thank you sir!

    MLB and Union talk major rule changes

    They play every night? Until they do, this is no comparison.

    Wish I knew how to embed tweets.

    I'm with you on that El Gordo. Seems like some fans are getting their panties twisted over nothing.

    It sure is.

    This is what I think too.

    Flacco's Fate ...... Possible trades (Traded to Broncos)

    Umm No .... you said nobody would trade for him. Show me where I said we were definitely getting anything. I posted articles where they speculated certain picks. I thought that they might get a second or third. Im still interested to see what the specifics of the deal are. We’ve heard Denver’s 1st 4th rounder. But there may be a player and his name certainly won’t cone out with until then. Possibly nothing else.

    If he is the starter then so be it.

    https://twitter.com/burkegranger/status/1096883643123941376 From today. Hopefully his raw power starts to manifest in games this season, that would pretty much make him a perfect prospect at this point.

    Who replaces Joe Angel

    Hunter usually replaces Thorn FOR TV PBP on his days off so they need someone to do that with Hunter doing radio PBP. They have Palmer, BRob, Ben McDonald, and Bordick for color.

    I'm with you. I know it's only $700K but after picking up over half a dozen infielders via the waiver wire, minor league free agency, and the Rule V Draft this off-season, this seems totally superfluous. I can't imagine the analytic motivation behind this.

    This is a big nothing burger right now. He's insurance in case Martin/Jackson show they aren't ready plus he's spent some time at 3B. I'd be more concerned if I was Ruiz, Wilkerson, Alberto and maybe Nunez about his signing. It's not like he's really blocking anyone so relax.

    While the Giants are busy stockpiling former Orioles.

    Colby Rasmus signed a minor league deal last year.

    This team is going to be very “Giants”-esque, doing the small ball thing.

    Not sure how anyone, beat reporter or otherwise, would assume that a guy signed to a MiL deal has the inside track to start OD.
  21. Luke-OH

    Orioles Sign Alicides Escobar to MiL Deal

    Yep and I don’t think he will be, I think beat reporters just get caught up in ”veteranosity” in how they characterize things.
  22. Can_of_corn

    Orioles Sign Alicides Escobar to MiL Deal

    He's an improvement over Machado? He was a bad player last year. No reason to expect him to be better this year.

    Orioles Sign Alicides Escobar to MiL Deal

    I was talking about the concept more broadly. I honestly would have to dig into Escobar a bit more to comment on his skills specifically.

    We have no SS in the system who has been a major league SS before. If Martin doesn’t pan out or gets hurt then who plays? Considering what we had at SS last year he is certainly an improvement. Elias doesn’t seem willing to spend to make more significant improvements.

    Orioles Sign Alicides Escobar to MiL Deal

    I want the guy to succeed, because it means the Orioles are closer to succeeding. But, then I remember this guy, who has never hit for power, of all people would hit a home run in game one of the '14 ALCS, so its bitter well wishes.
