    Roch: Caleb will not be back, "guaranteed"

    Marty Cordova.
  2. That would be a weird way to phrase it if the Sopranos wasn't considered one of them. That'd be like saying, "Who are the best baseball teams since the 1988 Orioles?"

    Interesting FAs

    That's the first I've heard of this. Do you have a link or source?

    Who are the 25 O's on the Opening Day Roster

    Here's my best guess. Starters: C Sisco, 1B Davis, 2B Villar, SS Martin, 3B Nunez, LF Mancini, CF Mullins, RF Stewart, DH Trumbo Bench: C Wynns, IF Jackson, IF Alberto, OF Rickard Rotation: Bundy, Cashner, Cobb, Karns, Hess Bullpen: Givens, Bleier, Castro, Scott, Fry, Yacabonis, Araujo

    Who are the 25 O's on the Opening Day Roster

    I tackled this myself last week (before the Karns signing): https://www.baltimorebaseball.com/2019/02/06/spring-training-nears-many-orioles-roster-spots-accounted/ I'm surprised Trezza doesn't list Paul Fry among the expected relievers, or even among the candidates fighting for a spot. Fry was pretty much the setup man for Givens in August and September last year. I think he's close to a lock. Also I'd put Hess way ahead of Yefry Ramirez for the fifth starter's spot. And I don't see Austin Hays making the Opening Day roster, although he could be up early in the season.

    Rich Dubroff: Joe Angel not returning.

    Angel is a native Spanish speaker. He was born in Colombia and didn't speak English until he was nine.

    MLB and Union talk major rule changes

    Not really relevant to the thread, but this isn't correct. The Orioles will need a fifth starter for the 6th game of the season at the latest (April 2). That's part of a stretch in which they have six games in six days.

    Adam Jones returning? Unlikely, but would it be bad?

    *could have 😉

    Anyone Following Manny?

    You know, these things are extremely easy to look up. Yes, Machado has twice finished in the top 5 for AL MVP. Fourth in 2015 and fifth in 2016.

    Anyone Following Manny?

    I've moved most of the Chris Davis discussion to the Davis thread: Let's attempt to keep this thread on topic, if that ship hasn't already sailed.

    2019 Season

    It's not unprecedented. Joe Girardi won Manager of the Year for the Marlins in 2006, when they went 78-84. The Marlins had sold off their entire team (again) and were expected to be 100+ loss bad, so Girardi got credit for them hovering near .500. If the Orioles win 70 games in 2019, Hyde absolutely could win MOY. I can't imagine any other team that would exceed expectations by that much.

    Tracking Ex Oriole Thread

    This blurb is wrong, I think. Corban Joseph did re-sign with the Orioles after being released, but the A's then selected him in the minor league Rule 5 draft.

    Hall Famers neutral on team logo

    I really doubt the Hall is going to override the wishes of Halladay's widow. That would be kind of a jerk move.

    Pretty awesome championship games

    So you think the rules are fine as long as the more famous QB wins the coin flip? What if it had gone the other way and Tom Brady never had a chance to touch the ball in OT?
