  1. Pretty basic stuff, most good infielders should be doing this already and signaling to their outfielders.
  2. Chaim Bloom is a guy I'd like to see interviewed. The Rays always seem to find and develop young talent. However, I wonder how much resources they allocate for international scouting and analytics.

    The Victor Victor Mesa/Sandy Gaston thread

    Miami just makes too much sense for VVM unless they just low ball him. Does Baltimore have a Cuban American community?

    'GM' Candidates and when

    So put him on a "PIP", give him a 30 day action plan and manage him out.

    Ned Colletti feels like a move the Orioles would make.

    Good Riddance

    I would be surprised if we did not have a GM named within the next few weeks. Whatever happened to Ned Coletti? Was there any truth to him interviewing this summer?

    An Early Look at the 2019 Draft

    Adley hit a 63 yard FG in high school.

    An Early Look at the 2019 Draft

    Having been to a lot of Oregon State baseball games over the past few years I am obviously a huge Rutschman fan. Great player, great character and will be ready quickly. Hard to go wrong with him.

    Joseph for the second time calls out the team

    So......besides talent, the team lacks leadership?

    Rosenthal: Orioles are in a state of confusion

    How serendipitous. Rather than signing FAs wouldn't it be better to poach the best people in scouting and development, offer than a 30-40% bump to leave their current organizations?

    O's have taken "tank" to a whole new level. They're not even a AAA right now.

    I'm definitely not plunking down a nice chunk of change to bring the family to Sarasota from Oregon for a week, that's for sure.

    New MD AD

    Not sure what to think of this article. Losing a kid to heatstroke is inexcusable and is going to cost the school a lot of money. Hopefully the investigation ends soon but it sounds like it might be time to part ways. The university may get off the hook for the rest of Durkin’s contract though depending on the results.

    On The Orioles Rebuild

    Same here. My 9 year old has a closet full of Oriole shirts/jerseys with Machado, Jones, Britton, Schoop on them. He and I flew in from Oregon to see the 2014 playoffs and I truly believe that the experience he had during the Detroit series helped fuel his passion for baseball which makes him the player he is today. His motion is a dead ringer for Britton but he's more dominant Now those dudes are gone and there's a little less excitement about headed to Sarasota in March. A rebuild was needed but it's hard.

    vs. D-RAYS, 7/28

    Typical Orioles. Pitcher struggling with command so they swing at garbage pitches for a craptacular result. A 12 pitch inning. My 10u All Star team has better approach than these guys.
