  1. Past hour
  2. Unfortunately at this time, it seems like working to deal Brach is a waste of time because the return is guaranteed to be minor league filler
  3. For Hader, the O's got Bud Norris who was a big contributor to making the ALCS in 2014. Problem was, Norris should have been traded after 2014 which would have allowed Gausman to start the year in the rotation. The trades I have an issue with are the Feldman and Parra trades. In both of them, the O's gave up talent to acquire players who were not going to be difference makers for a playoff run. One of the problems is recognizing if you are really in the playoff hunt, the O's were not in 2013 and 2015 and thus should have held, or at least if making a trade get something that will make a difference. At least with the Norris trade in 2013, he still had 2+ years of control.

    New prospect list?

    McKenna is probably somewhere in the 6-9th best prospect. His Frederick ops was higher than both hays (same age) and mountcastle (mountcastle was a year younger). If he does better next year in Bowie, he will solidify his prospect status.

    What is the Orioles projected payroll next year?

    In a vacuum, yes. If said player is giving significantly below replacement level performance and his presence at first creates a log jam for developing players trying to reach the majors, then not so much.

    There are good deals, really good deals, and best deals, but none of that is enough. No, sir. We want the best best deal. Period. End of discussion.😉

    Chasing the Worst Record Ever

    I think the worst record ever is chasing us.
  11. wildcard

    28 wins in 100 games

    Buck is not trying to win games when he brings Tanner Scott in the 8th with a one run lead. Scott was pitching for the 2nd time in two days with a 6.43 ERA while Castro with a 3.49 ERA sits in the pen rested.
  12. With the way the season has unfolded, we weren’t going to be good this season with or without those players. We suck because Chris Davis hit like a pitcher, Trumbo was hurt, Beckham was hurt, and Cobb/Cashner have mostly pitched like dookie. On the other hand, EdRod got us Andrew Miller, whose dominant performance got us to the ALCS. I can’t hate that trade. Hader we didn’t see much gain for, which was disappointing. But the idea was correct, in my opinion.

    IMO Sedlock will never even make the majors.

    Brach Trade Discussion & Expectations

    Brad Brach needs to be traded, even if we get nothing in return. He has no future on the team, and I'd rather evaluate a young guy, like Meisinger.
  15. wildcard

    New prospect list?

    Here is the O's new list. John Means is snubbed. http://m.mlb.com/prospects/2018?list=bal The other questionable call is McKenna #28. He could be the O's player of the year.

    New prospect list?

    Yeah, that has delayed things a bit as I watch a bunch of game video on the Diaz, Kremer, Pop, and Valera (I was already very familiar with Bannon). I'm almost done though.

    Britton Trade Expectations

    Trading Britton is different than trading Machado. We had to get a “big haul” for Machado with a name like Diaz as centerpiece. With Britton we can take more chances. I’d like to see us target high end guys that are in A ball or Rookie ball. Whats the point in 2020-2021 of having a team full of 1B/DH types, relievers, and COFs? We should focus on premium positions like SS, and SP. For HOU I’d be looking at Nova, Solis, and Arausz. We’re going to be drafting high the next couple of seasons. Now is the chance to focus on acquiring international talent through trade and then follow that up with finally spending our international pool money.

    You going to include the HAUL for ZB?

    Brach Trade Discussion & Expectations

    Every July Brach goes into this HR funk. His delivery changes and he looks like a wild man out on the mound. Why throw a hanging curve ball to aToronto hitter whose name you can't pronounce. Why? Dempsey asked the question when you throw in the mid 90's why throw a slow pitch hanging batting practice pitch to a hitter? I've never seen him throw a swing and miss curve ball. They get crushed when he throws them. Joseph or Wynns should never call that pitch again. Even if called from the dugout. He blew a chance for Cashner to pick up a win he can't seem to get. Did they say it's been over 2 months without a win? He could have had 3-5 more wins with a decent pen and some hitting behind him. If he was pitching for Boston or NY he would have at least 8 or more wins right now. If Brach keeps blowing games he might get chewed out in the locker room. Maybe it's already happened to him. It was an unhappy looking team after blowing that game yesterday. Same for Scott! He threw a fastball down the center of the plate to cost us the game yesterday after Brach started the disaster. Scott should definitely get chewed out. He walks off the mound after giving up runs like nothing happened. No emotion! No fire! Somebody help him. He pitches like a guy with an emotional disorder or is in a fog. I really think he needs help. Greg Olsen questioned his approach on the radio.

    Manny Was Told He Was Traded Last Sunday

    Yes..the key phrase is “pretty much”....meaning the trade was not yet finalized, but was close and that was why he was removed and also likely why he was not told who the team was. To protect him against injury but also to protect against Manny being told, getting his hopes fixed in one direction and then the deal fall through.

    Schoop, Gausman, and Bundy Trade Expectations

    “Jonathan Schoop‘s time with the Orioles may be coming to an end, if recent trade rumors are any indication. The second baseman tells The Athletic’s Dan Connolly(subscription required) that he hopes he can remain in Baltimore to become a building block for the O’s as they go through a rebuild. That said, the team also didn’t engage in any extension talks with Schoop last winter in the wake of his strong 2017 season. That move may have been prescient on the Orioles’ part, as Schoop suffered through a nightmarish first three months that saw him miss time with an oblique injury and post just a .587 OPS over 266 PA. Though he has hit better in July, the Orioles would still be selling low on Schoop, so they could retain him for the rest of the season to see if he can rebuild any value in the second half. Schoop has one remaining year of arbitration eligibility before hitting free agency after the 2019 campaign.” https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2018/07/quick-hits-altherr-schoop-santana-allen-miller.html

    Britton Trade Expectations

    I think Hall and Arauz are quite similar. I haven't read much about Grenier except that he's hitting in the .230s so far which obviously means very little. If you could end up with the starting 2B and SS out of these three guys you would have accomplished something. Also they have good speed (not great) and solid OBP guys. I noticed Hall has 32 Ks in 110 at bats, it is a ton for a guy with spray hitter projection and currently 0 homers. I don't think it could hurt to have all three and having them all pan out would be a win. I switched my prediction from Perez to Alcala after reading that his elbow was likely a concern last year. Alcala is projected as a late innIng guy because he hit 100 mph on the gun. His MLB card shows FB 70, Slider 55 Curve 50 Change 50 so I wouldn't be quick to move him to the pen. Paulino could be an option as well. I think Alcala, Armenteros , and Arauz would be a good deal for the Orioles and likely meet the all in rumor to go along with your post about not putting their top five on the table.

    Ryan McKenna 2018

    Some McKenna video, the first pitch is fun, he legs out a triple (~11s home to 3rd) on a ball he drives to CF.

    Here's some Tommy Doyle video for those who aren't familiar. Potential late inning relief arm IMO.
