  1. Don’t look now but Rickard doesn’t look much better.
  2. I didn’t want to make too much orogresss this year. Looks like I don’t have much to worry about. Wow.
  3. Bundy with his penchant for giving up homers would be rough out of the bullpen.
  4. Looks a little faster than Weiters.
  5. Never seen a guy throw so many fastballs down the middle
  6. My obsession with Chris Davis watching third strikes has been replaced with my obsession with Bundy throwing fastballs right down the middle. It would be great if the velocity was better, but location is his biggest issue.
  7. Despite my disagreement on this decision I am on the record as very impressed with Hyde.
  8. You have to manage with the whole season in mind. Even if you are trying to win, it makes no sense to blow out your best bullpen arm. His velo dipped to 93 in the second inning.
  9. Aroujo does count. He is on the roster and actually beat the Yankees last year in the beginning of the season.
  10. I don’t love the Givens move. That’s a lot of pitches for him. We don’t need to get him hurt. Bullpen management is something most new managers have the most issues with.
  11. I know this is wishful thinking, but I always wanted to believe Roberts when he said he was basically clean. The guy had a major heart issue that was repaired when he was young. He had a disincentive to take a chance with his health that could affect him differently than others. I am probably wrong, but it still feels right. As I get older I get more jaded but try to remember the original appeal of the game for me
  12. Can you tell me someone the Phillies have signed with any of the money the Orioles have traded them? In other words, who have they gotten that the Orioles could have gotten but for not trading away the money?
  13. He also has less leverage as a catcher. Catchers tend to have shorter careers. It is in his best interests to get started ASAP because the body will break down. Look at Weiters. And this kid is 6’2”, on the larger side for a catcher.
  14. He had 8 homers all of last year, he has 6 already.
  15. Too many K’s make them less special. Also more ball should in play gives you more opportunities for spectacular plays. I agree with your point re reducing home runs. On doing this all at once not making sense, part of doing so is probably to encourage fans to come out to the games by promoting all the differences.
  16. They should make the bases softer not bigger. There have been more issues with them being rock hard.
  17. Do you really think Elias et al don’t have firm opinions on this that have been formed by a combination of research and data?
  18. Yeah, if that P90x guy Tony Horton ever dies they could just substitute him in.
  19. Is there some way to tell how many times he took three swings in an at-bat? He swings and misses so often but also watches so many pitches.
  20. I think for a younger team it can’t hurt to win. Gives some confidence. Can’t see an advantage in losing when a young team.
  21. If there was ever a guy that needed three swings it is Chris Davis. He needs to stop looking for the perfect pitch
  22. It’s true his swing does basically look the same.
  23. Yeas, I agree if anything he cares too much. My hope is that the new regime is letting him see what he is doing isnt working and will convince him to try a different approach.
