  1. Check out the Astros at the opposite end.
  2. I'm pulling for individual performances this season. Thinking of it like a 162 game extended spring training. 🙂 So far I'm liking Mancini in that DH role! 😍 That is all.
  3. Nice game. Here's to hoping he can have a long successful career as a DH!
  4. It's not like the Orioles haven't defied expectations in the past. I think with a bunch of young and hungry unknown players anything could happen but not likely a winning season. 🙂A better record than last years lineup would be quite an accomplishment.
  5. WSJ: Baseball’s Worst Team Is Finally Joining the 21st Century https://www.wsj.com/articles/baseballs-worst-team-is-finally-joining-the-21st-century-11553169601 Anything interesting in here from anyone who may have a subscription?
  6. It's just baffling we weren't doing this before now. It just seems so commonsense.
  7. I'm glad to hear that he's hiring smart analytics and computer science individuals with people skills. Seems like a big missing piece to the puzzle of getting good info to the players. Just thinking back on what Britton said when he joined the Yankees. But I'm equally mad that they weren't doing these things before this season. It's these quotes that get me fuming, "I feel like this is just a team that, for whatever reasons, hasn’t taken advantage of some of the best processes throughout baseball.” Ugh, that kills me. 🤬 Anyway, I'll try to stay glad that we are doing the right things now, room for improvement. 🙂
  8. That'll do it, you just saved this thread 15-20 posts.

    Nice article, he appears to now have some rhythm. 🙂
  10. Ran across this and thought it was fit this thread.
  11. One of the images that will stick with me for a long time is when Jones ran around the field pieing and hugging fans after winning the AL East division championship.
  12. nice pickup. seems to have good eye. nice obp across all levels.
  13. Don't we still have a ton of international slot money compared to most teams?
  14. It's also possible the guys mentioned are actually benefiting from a completely new coaching staff and emphasis on analytics in a positive way and that be a good thing. Regardless of how they performed last season the slate is clean as far as I'm concerned. Let's see what Elias' and co can do with these guys.
  15. Yeah, I mean I guess we shouldn't worry about Davis this early, just like we shouldn't be talking about Santander being the starting left fielder. Goes both ways.
