  1. TT: Predicting the Opening Day Roster

    Infield in. Man on third with one out. Ball hit to Sardinas at 2B. He throws high to home with the run scoring. Flaherty would have made that play and Buck has to hate what he has seen from his Utility candidates this spring.
  2. TT: Predicting the Opening Day Roster

    Little early for me. I want to see what Tillman does tomorrow and whether Flaherty opts out on the 22nd. Santander and Valencia can DH until Trumbo is back. I think Buck will want Flaherty back after watching Vielma. Sardinas and Tejada be unimpressive. Too early to know yet though. If Tillman is as bad as he was last year the O's are going to have to consider if they want to throw games away that he starts. They could DFA him, pay him and resign him to a minor contract for him to go to Bowie and find himself. He can workout at Camden Yards. Hopefully he shows well tomorrow and avoid all that.
  3. Wynns sent to Norfolk

    Sounds like a track meet to me.
  4. I think Hays is a better rightfielder than Mullins is a centerfielder. Mullins has a weak arm. Hays has a strong arm.
  5. I haven't heard any trade talk about Flaherty. Only if he gets released. And then the O's probably wait until he passes through waivers because the O's probably will not pay him 1.9m plus incentives.
  6. Sounds like Buck will welcome back Flaherty.
  7. Mike Wright’s last shot

    I have been a Wright skeptic this spring but I will have to say some positive things about today's outing. He had not gone more the 3 innings this spring. Today he went 4 innings and allowed one run. From what I could hear on the radio he had pretty good command during those 4 innings' He faltered in the fifth. He should get another start this spring if he has a good outing going 5 innings in his last outing he may make the rotation. I want to hear what Frobby has to say about Wright today since he was in the stands.
  8. A Lot of Moves This Next Week

    Rule 5ers Cortes, Mesa and Araujo are not out of options but the O's lose them if they don't keep them.
  9. Santander

    Or Trey Mancini last spring. 3 homers, 14 RBI, 979 OPS in 60 at bats. http://baltimore.orioles.mlb.com/stats/sortable.jsp?c_id=bal#playerType=ALL&elem=[object+Object]&tab_level=child&click_text=Sortable+Player+hitting&game_type='S'&season=2017&season_type=ANY&league_code='MLB'&sectionType=sp&statType=hitting&page=1&ts=1521242903614&sportCode='mlb'&split=&team_id=110&active_sw=&position=&page_type=SortablePlayer&sortOrder='desc'&sortColumn=avg&results=&perPage=50&timeframe=&last_x_days=&extended=0
  10. Showalter: O's "Lying in the weeds" in AL East

    The weeds are about as deep as his starting pitching staff.
  11. Trumbo out 3-4 weeks

    The player to replace Trumbo is Sardinas. Trumbo's injury gives Santander a place to play. Whether Mancini plays left or DH. Having Santander get at bats at LF or DH instead of sitting the bench is the first priority. Valencia can be a back up corner OF/1B/3B/DH vs lefties. But when he DH there is no backup UIF. That is where Sardinas comes in. Santander and Valencia get the playing time that Trumbo would have gotten. Sardinas gives the O's better depth in the infield.
  12. Trumbo out 3-4 weeks

    I agree with those that are saying that it does not necessarily mean that Pedro makes the team. It gives Santander a place to play. LF/DH/1B for Davis, Mancini and Santander. But if either Mancini or Santander are DHing they are not available to play the OF. Hays or Rickard or Presley may be more useful than Pedro.
  13. Maybe its a major league contract that is not guaranteed.
  14. Cobb Talk

    I can't see the O's spending 18m/yr on Cobb.
