  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

  5. 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.

    Was anyone ever able to determine who the last Oriole farmhand was who was able to go 20/20? Assuming there was someone of course.
  7. PhillyO's Mid-season Top 30 Orioles prospects

    Definitely a plus arm. MLB.com has him rated as a 70 arm and I read reports that he threw 95 pitching in HS.
  8. Austin Hays 2017

    Hays has walked in 3 of his last 9 games. Wonder if that is him being more selective (maybe hearing the BA's of the world being critical and trying to prove them wrong?) or just the pitchers being more careful with him?
  9. Austin Hays 2017

    I guess let me answer by asking you two questions. Do you think there will be room on the 40 man for him next year when camp breaks? If so, what gives you that certainty? I am skeptical that there will be room between current contracts the O's are committed to, players we need to add to the 40 man to protect from the Rule 5 as well as other yet TBD players that will be acquired or signed as FAs. I do expect a few who are currently on the 40 man to be gone at some point this offseason. I just think it is too early to be saying he can easily have a 2018 40 man roster spot as you seem to be implying. I think we have a lot to see about how the 40 man shakes out leading up to ST 2018.
  10. Austin Hays 2017

    It makes a difference because he's not on there now. They would have to make room for him. That might be tough to do considering they will have to shuffle a bit for Rule 5 protection. Maybe they release a bunch of guys or trade away folks to clear room. It's anyone's guess on what they decide to do really. I'm not saying he won't/couldn't be on the O's opening day roster in 2018. I'm just saying the way things are currently setup, it would be near impossible. I thought I was pretty clear in the last sentence of my post which sparked this back and forth. Not trying to sound snarky at all...just am unclear what we are necessarily "arguing" about here.
  11. Austin Hays 2017

    It's not so much that they would play the Super 2 game, it's more the 40 man and the way it's currently constructed. Doesn't allow for much flexibility. Could they make changes, release or trade some folks? Sure. TBD, I suppose.
  12. Zac Lowther

    Move him to DEL and push Wells up to FRE.
  13. Alex Wells

    Really wish he'd get a start or 2 in at FRE before the season ends.
  14. Austin Hays 2017

    Wishful thinking that we'd probably all agree with. Problem is as you mention, the 40 man. I doubt we see Hays in OPACY until after the Super 2 clock stops ticking next May. With the way our roster is currently constructed, no way he gets called up before then.
  15. DJ Stewart 2017

    When was the last time an Oriole prospect had a 20/20 season in the minors? I'm sure there is someone, somewhat recently that did it who I just can't think of off the top of my head. Stewart is on the verge with 17HR and 18SB. Numbers are shaping up nicely for him since he's been so hot the 2nd half of the season. https://www.baseball-reference.com/register/player.fcgi?id=stewar000dem
