  1. 2017 Arizona Fall League Thread

    I think a lot of folks hope they can move at least one of Crush or Trumbo this offseason. That would alleviate a lot of issues and possibly allow for a move like you suggest.
  2. 2017 Arizona Fall League Thread

    Probably because of Austin Hays.
  3. Deadspin Piece On The Terps

    Injuries at key positions have obviously hurt. The defense lacks real playmakers. The offensive line, which many lauded coming into this season as potentially one of the best in the B1G, has been really bad for the most part. Let's wait and see what we have in 1-2 more years once Durkin's recruits all take hold. Edsall left a real mess for him to cleanup.
  4. 2017 Redskins

    Narrowly escaped with a win against San Fran yesterday. IMO, the refs helped keep them in the game and then helped us seal the deal with the pick call against Garcon on the final drive. Why is it that we have such trouble finishing off teams? We always seem to play down to the level of competition. Other than the Oakland game, when was the last time this team really put it to someone?
  5. Mountcastle to continue transition to 3B in the AFL

    From Keith Law: Orioles infielder Ryan Mountcastle is here and has shown more of the hard contact that got him a quick promotion this summer to double-A at age 20. He's playing third base, and his arm is ... still an enigma. He's made throws that showed no arm strength, but he made a throw in his first game from the foul line to first base without a hop, which was at least average arm strength. If he does that regularly, he can play third base, and his bat should profile there. http://www.espn.com/blog/keith-law/insider/post?id=7725
  6. 50 Days Until Tip Off

    I’m usually very optimistic heading into the season, but this year I’m a bit concerned. Hopefully Cowan has improved. Wing play outside of Huerter is a big question mark as are the bigs. Fernando has potential but I’m not sure his offensive game is polished enough just yet to be a real contributor there this season.
  7. 2017 Arizona Fall League Thread

    No, I get that. I just stinks that certain players aren't given more priority when it comes to things like this. I feel like a prospect the caliber of RM should bear more weight than others, like Wilkerson for instance. If anything Steve should be DHing. We already know about his defensive value. It's at the plate that he'll have to prove himself a contributor.
  8. 2017 Arizona Fall League Thread

    Thank you for these reports. They are awesome! Sucks that RM is DHing even if it is for a game. You'd think one of the main points of sending him there was to work on his defense and getting comfortable at 3B. And you'd also hope that the Os FO would have enforced that notion to AFL managers and coaches.
  9. Get to know your GCL Orioles

    Oh yeah. Good call. Forgot about him. Great set of physical tools he possesses
  10. Get to know your GCL Orioles

    Sparks, DL Hall, Rodriguez and Torres. Outside of them, most were too old for the league or didn't show much. I hope all four start in DEL next year but any of them are probably just as likely to start at ABD. Highly doubt any of those four repeat GCL.
  11. Zach Davies

    Zach has pitched to a 3.0 WAR thus far while his salary is mere $547k. Ubaldo has given us -1.2 WAR with his $12.7 mil salary. Outside of the obvious pay differential, which hypothetically could have been used elsewhere to improve the team, the 4.2 wins puts the O's in the 2nd wild card slot.
  12. My kingdom for the Joe Angel HR call

    Wow, I expected more from Angel. He's normally on the ball (see what I did there? 😂). That was very Gary Thorne-awful-esque.
  13. Austin Hays

    Posted this in the AH 2017 minors thread, but I 100% agree with what Joey said above: For the record, not a fan of this. If we were a lock for a playoff spot, then I'd be somewhat OK with it. I just don't see the point of starting his service clock. We have a tough enough time with payroll and resigning our own young talent and this move accentuates that notion further. He had better play every single day in RF otherwise this is a very shortsighted move by the FO. Unless, of course, Hays pushes us over the top and into a playoff spot. Since he doesn't pitch however, I don't see that happening.

  15. Washington Redskins - Off season changes

    He will be back. Especially with the Cravens situation. He has become quite the leader and player/coach. Skins need the depth at S.
