  1. This was Luke's tweet reply to me regarding scouting.
  2. The OP title had me thinking Luke had been hired by the O's (though it appears to have meant to be taken tongue-in-cheek). As others have said, Elias is making changes that he wasn't able to after his initial hiring. It's possible, if not likely, that he already has candidates lined up for these positions.
  3. Yeah, that was the hope. He sure looked the part.
  4. I recall telling my family how good Fiorentino's swing was and even though he was rushed, he would become a good ML player for us. Boy, was I wrong!

    Seems he's moving up to Delmarva...
  6. Adley caught a combined 2-hit shutout in his debut, and threw out the only attempted steal. He also went 0-2 with two BB's.
  7. There are going to be 26-man rosters beginning in 2020, rather than the traditional 25.
  8. Yeah... I get that we're a very bad team and may be bottom dwellers for a while to come, but I do enjoy seeing what may be. There IS hope, and Rutschman is a big part of it.
  9. Just an FYI... Rutschman was promoted to Delmarva... as many expected. Whether we're at the bottom or not, following him feels good.
  10. Just learned (apparently) what an acronym is (and seemingly isn't). I had thought an acronym was letters that replaced words, phrases, or sentences, such as FWIW (for what its worth). However, it appears that FWIW is an Initialism (never heard of it before) rather than an acronym. According to GrammarBook.com, here are the differences between Abbreviations, Acronyms, and Initialisms. Anyway, I thought this was interesting... hope someone else does too.
  11. From the FWIW Dept: There is a potentially weird situation developing. If we lose tonight and Detroit wins, they're still in first place by the slightest margin. Though we'd be a half-game ahead, the Tigers would have a .3089 Win %, and we would be at .3095. So, the Tigers would remain in 1st by the slightest of margins. We've played three more games than they have, which is at the root of that issue.
  12. Sweet... to add to the joy, here's Melewski's tweet:
  13. Agreed. Syracuse will be very tough, as they are ranked 22nd pre-season by the AP.
