    Luke’s 2018 Rule 5 Draft Preference List

    Maybe I misunderstood that song. Was it about a girl named Brickhouse?

    Roch: Decisions Still Pending

    I'm not familiar with the analytics side of baseball people are talking about, but do analytics play a role in the evaluation of draft prospects? If so, is Rajsich an analytics guy? I remember reading on this board after last year's draft that Rajsich was upset that he was directed to draft Grener(because it was a position of need?) instead of the player he thought should have been picked. If analytics are used to evaluate draft prospects and Rajsich doesn't agree with the analytical results for players, who will make the call as to which players get drafted?

    My approach to the 2019 season

    Considering all the homers he gave up last year, I don't really think the defense had anything to do with his performance last year. Maybe signing some outfielders who are at least 20 feet tall would help.

    Ryan Mountcastle - 3B - 2018 #3 Prospect

    If you play him at first base, what would you do with Davis? Or would you wait until Davis' contract is done?

    Ryan Mountcastle - 3B - 2018 #3 Prospect

    Do you like him in the field?

    BA: Meoli lists 10

    I keep seeing this over and over. If his arm is so bad, why would you put him anywhere in the OF?

    Who do you think/hope will impress in ST?

    It would be nice if he could throw either of these pitches somewhere near the plate. I would hope that Akin can show he can do well against major league hitters.

    Top President / EVP Candidates?

    So Heyman reports that he hears that the O's have "definite interest" in Ng, but he doesn't mention for what role. He mentions that she has been a candidate for GM in the past. Do you think he is talking about the role of President for the O's? If he talking about GM of the O"s, does that mean the O's have reached an agreement with someone to be the O's president? If not, then that would mean either they are not going to hire a president, or that the president is not going to hire the GM.

    I assume that the O's know this about Mountcastle, so is he still expected to be a 3B? If not, what do you think the next position is for him to try? With arm and footwork issues, I don't see where he could play in the field. It's looking like he's going to be a DH for his whole career.
  10. So I'm out of line because you apparently are not comprehending what I have written? You will never be able to find one time when I even hinted that Anderson ever signed a free agent. Look at the last sentence in SteveA's response to my post. I was responding to that and said that Anderson doesn't have to do something like that to be interfering with someone else's responsibilities. In the article about Anderson and his growing influence with the O's, he was specifically mentioned by the prior pitching coach as a problem. Anderson having influence with Peter Angelos was a problem. I raised the question if anyone thought the Angelos' sons would make it clear to Anderson that he has certain responsibilities and is not to meddle in others. Since no one has answered my question, I guess it is sadly going to be more of the same with the Orioles.
  11. Apparently you did not read my question, but the bolded part of your post is another way of asking my question. I asked if anyone thinks that the Angelos' would make it clear to Anderson that he has a list of responsibilities and is not to be involved in matters not on his list. He doesn't have to go out 'own' his own and sign a free agent to be interfering with someone else's responsibilities.
  12. Do you think that the Angelos twins will rein in Anderson and make sure he only takes care of a rigid list of responsibilities? If they don't then who cares who gets hired to be the top executive.

    I've seen this said about him many times. Is this something that the O's would have tried to change during the season, or something he should work on over the winter? I have often wondered if players work with any coaches in the off-season to correct mechanical weaknesses. If not, do they have to wait until spring training to try to correct the issues?
