  1. This is the best FA safety class in many years so there are some options there.
  2. Where have you gone, Adam Jones? Our nation turns its lonely eyes to you.
  3. Competition between flawed/limited players is still competition.
  4. I don't think it has changed much and if anything has become even more rare, at least if you're talking about the first round. I remember looking at this a few months ago when people were talking about Hiura as a potential return for Schoop/Gausman. Other than him there have not been a lot of players drafted in the top half of the first round who were announced as 2Bs. Madrigal last year had played 2B because of Grenier but even he was announced as a shortstop. Before Hiura you have to go back to Kolten Wong and Cory Spangenberg in 2011.
  5. Who's left from that delegation? Isn't it just Brady?
  6. That was the Manny Alexander experiment. Six games in July 1996. Manny had two errors and one hit.

  8. Probably because he was hurt a lot and because he was the consolation prize when Palmeiro left to go back to Texas. A lot of injuries were lingering ones that led to whispers about his age, conditioning, commitment, etc. And the 99 team was just disappointing overall. Here's a good Sun article from the month before he was traded: https://www.baltimoresun.com/news/bs-xpm-2000-06-25-0006250157-story.html
  9. Only 7 can be in uniform but there's no other limit. The only other rule is you have to have two base coaches. All the other coaching titles apparently are conventional (I was surprised about the lack of a bench coach and decided to do some digging on this).

    DiSarcina and...Rick Dempsey? 😁
  11. Luke, do you think the new regime will try anything different with Tanner Scott or basically just let him keep doing what he's doing and focus more on command and hitting spots? He threw 45% sliders this year, which is a lot, but he used it pretty conventionally (much more when ahead in the account, less when behind). I'm wondering if pitching backwards is something they might try with him. He has a great fastball, too, so I don't think there's really a wrong answer with him, but he should be a lot of fun to watch.
  12. Tanner Scott's slider might be on this list next year.
  13. That would need to be a panel with Albert Belle and Eddie Murray included. Maybe they could bring in Ken Rosenthal for some role playing.

    Normalcy

    Attendance is going to suck this year. They could sign Bryce Harper and it wouldn't matter. That's not to say the business operations people shouldn't try to figure out ways to make attendance suck less, but it's just reality. Attendance in 2019 should be the last thing on the minds of the baseball operations people.
