  1. I upvoted you. Thank you for a well reasoned and thought out response. Somewhat rare here.
  2. I don't think that's true. I think working with an outstanding pitching coach who truly understand movement patterns and contraints had more to do with that than analytics.
  3. Just imagine the type of year he could have had in 2016...it may have been historic! Yes, this is sarcasm. I think most of the things players say to the media is prompted my the media. You can hear when they broadcast the interviews. Most responses start off with..."yes, I think your right...that makes a big difference" or "absolutely". This is completely overblown.

    August Trade Stock Watch

    Cobb has rebounded very nicely. 5+ ERA is from not having any ST and a horrible defense behind him. Several of his 15 losses are due to lack of run support. He is really putting together a nice second half. Keep him and I think we can get a nice piece for him next deadline. His contract is actually not that bad.

    How Do The Orioles Land On Sunday Night Baseball?

    It is the Yankees on national TV! The O's are just the other team.

    Mullins is with the Orioles! (edited)

    Bringing him up now is pointless. He has been mediocre at AAA. He’s only been there for a few weeks. There’s no reason to rush him up. You can (and the O’s have) damage development by bring up someone too soon. I’d much rather hold off until they’re beating down the door. Bring him up in 3 weeks (September) and let him start next year in the minors and gain the extra year of control. Who knows what he will be but most projections have him as a lower division regular or a forth OF. We are talking about an above average defender but not an impact bat. There’s no real need to have him up in this malaise of a season.

    Service time of Sisco, Scott, and Hays.

    I would manipulate as many prospect's service time as I can to get the extra year of control. They may never pan out but, there is no reason to have any true prospect loose a year of control for service time the rest of this year or first two months next year. Let them come up in September and then start next year back down and target June/July to start to bring them up. I don't care if they are 24-25 yo. Nothing wrong with extending control into age 30-31 seasons. Could work out better as they run through most of their prime years before FA hits.

    Nats gauging interest for Harper

    I may not use the same tone as sportsfan8703 but I really don’t like the Nats. I disagree with your assertion that they haven’t embarrassed their hometown like the Orioles. First, I am not embarrassed by the O’s every run ends at some point. They are losing at an historic rate but I’m not embarrassed by that. It is what it is. I’m kind of glad because it has made it clear what needs to be done. Whats embarrassing is that the Nats being one of the national media darlings spoon feed players by Boris and NEVER WINNING A PLAYOFF SERIES. they’ve played in the worst division in baseball for many years and have won meaningless division titles against horrible competitors. I wouldn’t trade the O’s for the Nats period.

    Carroll to be called up Tuesday?

    We might find out he was indeed talking about Mike Wright when discussing future closers?

    DD is not under contract next year and

    I think it's completely different when talking about an athlete where age is clearly a factor, especially when discussing a player such as Adam who is both expensive and on the downside of his abilities and a baseball executive who really has nothing to do with age. If you were attempting to be cute and clever by playing with the DD quote... you failed IMO.
