    Our Guys Have Been Horrible For Other Teams.

    What position is he playing now? I thought I saw they had moved him to 3B because of an injury. How would his metrics look if he had played 3B for the O's?
  2. He'll survive until the end of the season. Hopefully neither he nor Jones will be brought back. It's time to move on.

    An Early Look at the 2019 Draft

    In the write-up about Stott, it was mentioned that he has a 'left-side arm' that would help him to stay at SS. What is a left-side arm?

    What would it take to move Davis or Trumbo?

    I watched the Rays broadcast of the game last night. There is a former player(I don't know who) who helps with the broadcast. As Davis kept swinging and missing, the broadcaster kept pointing out that with the mechanics of Davis's swing, he just can't hit fastballs on the inside half of the plate. It's a combination of the bat speed, the dropping of the hands and the uppercut swing. Not surprisingly, the Rays kept pitching Davis inside. The lower bat speed has been mentioned in other threads about Davis' hitting(or lack thereof). Someone with the Orioles has to have seen the same things a broadcaster has seen. And yet, nothing changes with Davis. I can't see how anything will change with him. He has become one in a long line of players who had impressive seasons until they got their BIG contracts. After that, they just collected their money.

    Do you think the Mayflower truck the Colts used is still available?

    Orioles CF camera ranked best in MLB.

    How about "center-cut".

    2019+ Positional Review Series: 1B/DH

    Are you saying that Duquette didn't know anything about Stewart other than he was a good hitter in college? Are you saying that we should ignore what Duquette says about the players drafted? Other than weams posting today that Stewart is "wonderful" in LF, I haven't seen any other posts touting Stewart's defense. I remember seeing a post recently that said that Mountcastle and Stewart could platoon at DH in the majors. And saying a baseball player is "wonderful" sounds like sarcasm to me.

    2019+ Positional Review Series: 1B/DH

    Do you think that Stewart will do more good than harm in LF? When he was drafted, Duquette said Stewart reminded him of Ortiz, who was a half-player whose defense was so bad that he was only on the field in inter-league games. At the time I thought that it was a waste of a first round pick to take a DH. I have no reason to change my mind yet.

    2019+ Positional Review Series: Catcher

    Maybe that's who the O's should take in next year's draft - the catcher from Oregon State.
  10. Do you know of any reason why he's not signed, i.e. PED's or wanting too much money?

    Cashner Rumors?

    No wonder he got so mad at Showalter when he was taken out of that game.

    And what if the O's do something stupid like re-signing Jones?

    Beckham's move to SS

    I guess you didn't see the replay and notice how wide Beckham's throw was.

    Machado comments after trade

    Did you read the question I asked in the first line of my post? You didn't address the fact that Showalter did not get rid of those coaches. Two of them made the decision to leave. This issue of Showalter's "guys" has been discussed in other threads. His guys are players and coaches.

    Machado comments after trade

    Yes, but how many of those coaches has Showalter sent packing? I don't remember the names, but one coach quit during the season saying he was retiring, and after a short time, took a job with another team. Wasn't it the last pitching and bullpen coaches that quit during the offseason to take jobs with the Braves?
