    Austin Hays to have surgery to repair ankle fracture

    Thanks for the update. For some reason it's saying I rated this thread as 2 stars. I did not do that. I don't think I've ever rated a thread in my life lol.

    POLL: Yay or nay on Beckham trade?

    I'd rather they have kept both.

    Carmona vs. Hall

    Round 1 goes to the 170 pounder from Canada.

    The race for Orioles’ MiL pitcher of the year

    Yeah, I mean you can make a case for the others, but given the Orioles' typical handling of this award I think Akin is the clear frontrunner here.

    The one that got away

    Most relievers are failed starters. The Orioles aren't unique in that. Frankly it's why I pay very little attention to minor league relief prospects. If you've already needed to be converted to the bullpen in the minors, chances are you don't have the arsenal to succeed in the majors. There are exceptions obviously.
  6. With the season soon to start the home stretch, Bundy has become the clear #1 for me here. Even if we had hopes for him being an ace I think we all at least expected a reliable #3/#4 starter, and frankly that looks very much in jeopardy. Two straight years of very inconsistent performances, and currently he's Tillman-esque. Not the good Tillman.

    Yusniel Diaz 2018

    I wasn't a big fan of him as the centerpiece. Certainly hope I'm wrong. Bannon has been terrible as well. Other than Kremer and Rodgers, most of the new baby birds have not been very impressive. Still very early though.

    Austin Hays off to slow start with bad approach

    Honestly I love when prospects experience some failure in the minors. Failure is such an important thing to learn to overcome and I do think it's more difficult to do at the MLB level. As a parent one of the key things I try to teach my kids is not necessarily how to succeed but how to deal with failure. Sounds like Austin has the mindset to put a disappointing 2018 behind him and move on.

    Coaching Staff

    People keep saying this, but the previous 3 full time managers - Mazilli, Perlozzo, Trembley - were all fired mid-season, not to mention interim manager Juan Samuel was replaced mid-season.

    Mullins is with the Orioles! (edited)

    Will be interesting to see if Buck bats him leadoff once he's here.

    New O's

    Yeah, pretty much agree with Luke. I thought Phillips looked pretty good. Haven't been impressed by Carroll in his 2 outings, he was barrelled up pretty well a few times in both appearances and I don't think I've seen him throw a good breaking ball yet. But obviously not going to take too much from 2 innings.

    Next years position players

    I think Chuck's post above looks pretty close. They need to prioritize clearing 1B or DH for Mancini and getting him out of the OF. I'm guessing that the roster in June looks significantly different than the roster on Opening Day as I'm sure they'll play some service clock games with some of these guys.

    Happy anniversary to Buck (first game 8-3-10)

    Wow, 8 years. Time flies man. Buck was a huge part in helping bring passion about baseball back to Baltimore. When they did playoff games or Opening Day introductions he usually got bigger cheers than any of the players. Will be interesting to see if he's asked to stick around for the rebuild and if he wants to stay or declines.

    Grade the Rebuild, Phase I

    Man, I feel like I'm usually one of the more optimistic folks here, and I gave it a C-/D+. I certainly appreciate the direction they appear to be going in, getting younger, at least giving lip service to being more involved internationally, etc. But I'm just not going to give them too much credit for something they should have been doing for years. To me when you do a rebuild of this nature the point of it is to expedite the process and get back the next core that's going to help you compete, and I don't think they did that. Looking at this organization as a whole I don't see the core of a competitive team. Shedding O'Day's salary is particularly disheartening to me unless this team is really strapped financially. He's only here for 1 more year - suck up that contract and get a better prospect instead.

    Are You Happy

    Add me to the list of those generally unimpressed. I certainly don't look at our organization as a whole now and see the core of our next contending team, which is disheartening. If they actually spend this international bonus money on high end talent, which I'm skeptical of, my tune my change a bit. I don't want to put all of our eggs in the Victor Victor Mesa basket though.
