  1. This is the part that bothers me: Even if Buck wasn't big on analytics, isn't the department being small still on Dan? Aren't analytics used in a lot of ways that go beyond managerial decisions?
  2. From this 2016 article https://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/sunday-notes-orioles-analytics-freeland-expos-more It sounds as if she was given this role a year out of college with a degree completely unrelated to analytics, because what they had before was stone zero.

    Duquette is expected to be fired

    Duquette is expected to be fired

    I don't think Duquette was the very best option, but there are probably a few who are better and a ton who are a lot worse. I would've been comfortable sticking with him.

    Bundy is Broken

    Ben McDonald ended up with 20 WAR. Bundy is at 4 WAR now... I would be thrilled if he ended up anywhere near 20.

    Mullins is with the Orioles! (edited)

    Thoughts on his defense so far? The numbers don't seem to be great, in the small sample.

    Updated prospect list

    Fangraphs has Cumberland a lot higher than everyone else does. In their top 100, and listed as the top return from the Gausman deal. Also has Encarnacion over Tate. https://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/ranking-the-prospects-traded-at-the-deadline-2/

    Grade the Gausman Deal

    How is Cumberland #99 in the Fangraphs list but listed somewhere in the 20-25 range for their organization? That's not in the same stratosphere. https://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/the-updated-top-131-prospect-rankings/
