    Tanner Scott Prefers the Bullpen

    Better defense behind him would help. His FIP is 3.49 and his xFIP is 2.99. He needs to limit the homeruns, too, though. I know he had a big uptick in the quality of his slider this year but something does seem to be up with his fastball. It's either a lack of movement or he is still figuring out how to pitch effectively with this new 2 pitch arsenal.
  2. The bolded does not seem correct to me. Both John and Lou like Brady from what I have read. I'd get rid of all 3 but honestly have a hard time seeing Brady let go.
  3. I had forgotten that Louis Angelos helped Brady sign Tillman, Cashner and Cobb (from the Sun back in May, which seems like a decade ago: http://www.baltimoresun.com/sports/orioles/blog/bs-sp-orioles-angelos-hierarchy-0523-story.html)
  4. That's my hope, but to pull that off, John or Lou Angelos is going to have to pull back the Wizard of Oz curtain that is currently shielding the owners of this team and lay out publicly who is in charge and how things have changed and will change. It needs to be a wholesale organizational shift, otherwise, who is even going to interview with this franchise? We barely got anyone to take the job last time, and while things mostly worked out with Duquette, we've now returned to pretty much the same place if not worse. If they don't do something pretty drastic to change minds within the industry about how things operate within the Warehouse, they are going to get declined offers and declined interviews like they did last time.

    O's Team Speed vs. AL East

    Putting Wilkerson and Valera in there helps our average more than we deserve. Those guys have 47 plate appearances combined.

    Joseph for the second time calls out the team

    I almost think getting fired in July would have been less embarrassing for Buck than what has happened since.

    Joseph for the second time calls out the team

    Is this Caleb submitting his own resume for the manager job? I'm asking the question because it popped into my head, but I don't that's what this is. He probably believes he is still a major league player. I think that's debatable, although for a team with a young pitching staff it does make some sense to have him around.
  8. Me too. Bigger (taller) stadiums, different lighting, figuring out how where the walls are, etc.

    Rosenthal: Orioles are in a state of confusion

    The only guy on the 40 man currently who isn't active who fits in that category is Hays. Guys who need to be added to the 40 over the winter is a different category.

    I feel like we've had this conversation a bunch of times over the years. IMO Roy can and should post how he wants and people should understand he is not posting here as a journalist. He's a fan who knows and talks to some well-placed people. He doesn't need to have two independent sources and a fact checker going through his notes every time he wants to post here.

    Rosenthal: Orioles are in a state of confusion

    The problem is you can't trust a Process being run by people who do not know or cannot agree on what the Process is and who may or may not actually be here to run the run the Process two months from now. Sam Hinkie had organizational buy-in. So did the Astros. The Orioles, if Rosenthal is to be believed (and he has his axes to grind, so a grain of salt is recommended), do not even seem to know who is making decisions for ownership at this point.
  12. weams, any inside info on whether the surgeon left any instruments in his ankle by mistake? Because that seems like the kind of thing that would befall one of our prospects.

    Yes. While his down/injured year has brought his value down, the fact that he was just traded helps him. No possibility of a comp pick now.
