    The Win rule for pitchers needs to be changed

    What can be mind boggling at times is a case like Tyler Wilson- pitched 4 2/3 solidly and doesn't qualify for the W. A reliever can come in and pitch 1/3 inning and get the W. Oh well, as long as it's a win that's all that really matters.

    Giants vs. Royals

    I was hoping for an Orioles/Cardinals series to cap the 60th Anniversary St Louis to Baltmore move. I'll root for an I70 rematch for now and if that doesn't happen I'll just hope the Giants bring down the Royal Scunion on KC!
  4. I thought I read that DD said he was closer to 18. But I get the premise of what your saying. We don't sign sophomores but we certainly scout them. Response to Nadecir's post
  5. "Scouting a high school student is something that the MLB doesn't do to players of their own country," said Park, refusing to comment on Duquette's statement. Obviously the KBO is not familiar with the MLB scouting system in the states. maybe he should check our 40 man roster for a pitcher with the last name of Bundy,D

    Norichika Aoki (update: Brewers get Aoki)

    His swing reminds me of Wade Boggs. Looks like he makes a lot of line drive contact with the occasional homerun. I think he would fit nicely at the top of the line up without Roberts or the 9 hole with Roberts. Either way I think he would definitely improve our line up.
  7. The O's could potentially have 4 lefties in the starting rotation. How many teams have ever had that many?
  8. So, is this the Orioles way of leveling the playing field in a convoluted sort of way? We can't hit lefties very well so we go out and sign as many lefty SP types to throw at the opponents (no pun intended).

    Now where do we put Machado?

    Based off of Joe Jordan's comments on tonites pre-game I would say he is destined for Delmarva. Said the attraction to him grew last year watching him against international competition and wood bat showcase leagues. Impressive pick.

    BA's 2009 Mock Draft (v3.0)

    He talks like a young Jaime Walker with good stuff. He seems to fit the breed of Berken, Hernandez, and Bergesen as far as mental make-up.

    BA's 2009 Mock Draft (v3.0)

    http://baseballanalysts.com/archives/2009/06/interview_with.php Zack Wheeler interview. Sounds very confident throwing any one of his pitches- doesn't mind throwing a 3-2 curveball.
  13. Why didn't they throw coco an outside pitch for the love of baseball!!! It was no surprise they were going to squeeze again-SHEESH
