    Mullins is with the Orioles! (edited)

    I wish they had the statcast catch probability.
  2. Of course Angelos loaned money to the business. Whenever any owner puts money into a business it is in the form of a loan. That way when that money is recouped it isn't a taxable event.
  3. That's a bit cynical. With all the egomaniacal owners out there you don't believe that there has ever been one that decided to go all in even if he knew it was likely to result in a deficit just to win once? Ok, how about an egomaniacal owner who says thinks he will be in a deficit for a given year but the winning will bring more fans in the coming years? I agree that generally these guys make more money than they pretend they do, but business all of the time operate at deficits while attempting to grow, why would a baseball team be any different?

    The heir apparent O's owner

    I don't think it is that simple. She isn't an owner of the Orioles to my knowledge, so this isn't a joint ownership of an asset type situation. There is also I believe, and I am no expert on this, a limit on the federal tax exemption.

    Skinny Barry Bonds was fast too. We know his arm wasn't so great since he couldn't throw out Sid Bream at home in Game 7 vs. the Braves.

    Grade the Gausman Deal

    Best comp for me for Gausman is Nate Evoldi. Throws really hard but somehow the fastball doesn't seem to fool anyone as much as you would expect. Has periods of dominance where you think he will break through. Ultimately never quite turns into the pitcher you would think he could be. That said, I didn't like the trade. Should have gotten better prospects.

    An Early Look at the 2019 Draft

    Watched this. Abrams seems to be a really good athlete. Witt didn’t do a whole lot but it is one game. No one truly stood out.

    Luis Ortiz, aka Bartolo Colon v2

    Young Bartolo threw 99 and had a filthy cutter.

    Statcast has Mullins at 29.7 ft/sec. That is tied for eighth fastest with Acura on the bases this year

    Bye Bye Valencia?

    Bordick saying they are hoping he clears waivers? Counter to what I read from Buck saying he hopes he gets a chance with a contender. Bordick is really awful.

    Mullins looks good but a little sick to me. I wonder if he is still recovering a bit.

    Yes, nice to see guys that can scoot a bit.
