    D.L. Hall 2018

    My main interest in Myers is because I own him in a 30 team dynasty league with deep minors. I have Hall as well. I guess because the Orioles traded Myers away, we are not supposed to bring him up. However, sometimes it is better to see how a young player handles a little adversity than if it goes completely smoothly. Myers may not have been ready for full season A ball at the beginning of the year and to see him improve to the point where he is dominating within the same season is impressive,

    Alex Wells 2018

    I saw Wells pitch for the first time last night. He had a strong game ( 7 inning, 4 hits 1 er, 7 ks). Kept them off balance all game. At least a couple of the hits should of been outs with better defense. Nobody hit the ball hard off him.

    D.L. Hall 2018

    I did not compare Myers and Hall. I said it would be nice have had the two pitchers come up thru the system together.

    D.L. Hall 2018

    We shall see. I think they are both promising prospects.
  5. No one said they intentionally "worked a kid to death". However, the reality is that the perception changes a lot where they are completely over the top in the name of changing the culture to toughen up the players to win more games when a kid dies as a result. Whether it is before or after the season, I don't expect Durkins, Evans or Loh to survive. It is incredible that Evan was hired after this incident.

    D.L. Hall 2018

    Myers struggled quite a bite in April and May which brings down his overall numbers. Again, I said it would be nice to have had Myers and Hall come up thru the system together.

    D.L. Hall 2018

    Tobias Myers went 7 innings for the 4th straight start last night ( 3 earned runs in 28 innings). Myers is a month older than Hall. Myers may not be as good as Hall but it sure would have have been nice to have them progress thru the system together.
  8. Luke, I think you do a great job here and don't want to get into a pissing match with you. However, in Jim Callis' mailbag he said the Twins were in the top half dozen systems and the Orioles were about 20th. https://www.mlb.com/news/twins-improved-farm-system-at-trade-deadline/c-288487900?tid=151437456 James Anderson of Rotowire came out with a ranking of farm system yesterday after the deadline deals. The Astros are 6th Twins 7th, Angels 9th and even after the Schoop trade the Brewers are 15th. The Orioles are 21st. https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/article.php?id=40690 I think the Orioles passed the Brewers after the Schoop. I also think the Orioles are better than Callis and Anderson are saying, but clearly behind Padres, Braves, White Sox, Rays, Phillies, Yankees, A's, Reds, Blue Jays, Dodgers, Astros, Twins, and Angels. Fairly or no there is a bias for teams with a strong recent development history.
  9. Mullins having a poor second half in 2017 does not equal a pattern.
  10. The trades had improved the farm system but top ten seems like a huge stretch. Padres, Braves, White Sox, Rays, Phillies, Yankees, A's, Reds, Blue Jays, Dodgers, Astros, Twins, Brewers and Angels. That is fourteen teams that I think still clearly have a better system than the Orioles. Of these teams, who do you think he Orioles are ahead of?

    Machado Trade Expectations

    For someone who has made literally thousands of posts regarding trading Machado, it is incredible how clueless you are. The prospect list you are referring to was last updated over the winter except for removing players that were traded and graduated. There have been more than half a season of baseball since then. These lists change. Peralta is having success in the MLB (50K in 37 innings) his value is a lot different than it was over the winter. A contending team is unlikely to rob Peter (pitching) to pay Paul (Machado) from their current team. They are looking to sacrifice some of their future for the present. In addition, there was a top 100 prospect list that came out yesterday that had Hiura at 9. I would be shocked if the Brewers include Hiura for a rental. Lastly, you list Estevan Floral as being ready for the majors. He has 134 Abs at high A with an OPS under 700. He is a talented but raw player that is at least two years way. Please do a little more research beyond looking at old MILb lists.

    Machado Trade Expectations

    A grudge for what? Rosenthal made a name for himself as an aggressive reporter covering the Orioles and moved on to bigger things. He still has sources in the warehouse.
