    Luke’s 2018 Rule 5 Draft Preference List

    Maybe we have a 2 for 1 for Cobb in the works? Only 14 taken in the first round. AAA next!

    Luke’s 2018 Rule 5 Draft Preference List

    12 Noon ! 12 minutes to go. Is our 2nd pick #24 or #25? Some teams are not drafting. Our 2nd pick could be Gatewood?

    Luke’s 2018 Rule 5 Draft Preference List

    Baseball America said he is a contact hitter and can contribute now. He can play infield and outfield a typical Oriole player. Cooper said he played well in the Arizona Fall League. Rated him #4. McClelland is also an interesting possibility. I think Elias will take his guy Riley Ferrell.

    Luke’s 2018 Rule 5 Draft Preference List

    Riley Ferrell or Ray Patrick DIdder Inf/OF Atlanta rated #4 today. They say he can contribute in 2019 to our roster in more ways than one, Plus runner and plus arm. Looked good in the AFL.
  7. The best is yet to come. Rule 5 tomorrow ! Who is the #1 player available? Who will Elias and Hyde hire to be our pitching and hitting coach ? Who will Elias get to play 2B and catcher? Positions he says he wants to fill and it appears outside the organization. Who will become manager at Norfolk and who will fill the other positions still open. Exciting times for Oriole fans especially those who are season ticket holders wondering if they should continue or just buy online when they feel like going.
  8. Once confirmed will Brandon Hyde want to bring any coaches with the Cubs organization with him to Baltimore? Will any of the Cubs free agents interest the Orioles? See below ! http://m.cubs.mlb.com/roster/coaches https://www.bleedcubbieblue.com/2018/1/18/16907236/cubs-announce-minor-league-managers-coaches-coordinators https://www.spotrac.com/mlb/free-agents/chicago-cubs/

    Hyde: New O’s Manager

    Bob Nightengale is pretty reliable and I believe based in Chicago and has excellent sources. Note Elias said reports of Hyde being hired were premature. He did not say he would not be his choice. My comment about Elias letting John and Lou know was strictly a courtesy not a requirement.

    Hyde: New O’s Manager

    Most will not like this but he probably wants to meet with John and Lou when he returns on Thursday or Friday to Baltimore. Just go over the reasons why he chose Hyde and plan the press conference to formally announce his choice on Tuesday or Wednesday. He didn't expect the Cubs to leak it after Hyde told them. Someone needs to talk to the Cubs and see if they were notified by the Orioles of this decision. Does anyone have any late quotes from the Theo or Maddon? No quotes from Hyde?

    An Early Look at the 2019 Draft

    18 hits in the college world series. Pretty impressive !

    Week 14 @ Kansas City

    Does our secondary ever stop the other team late in a game? Once in awhile but not often. Do we have a tight end prevent defense? Tony Romo said to put two guys on their TE Kelce. Wide open all day. Do we ever jam a receiver up on the line? Have they taken that away from CB's ? How do you continue to give up big plays on 3rd or 4th downs for more than twenty yards? Did anyone see Flacco on the side with RG3 after Lamar fumbled when hit on his blind side? He looked like he was scolding him. How many times have we seen Flacco fumble the ball? Tough game to lose after they got the lead.
  13. Mychal Givens will be traded. Possibly with a minor leaguer.

    Six teams in on Manny now! Some on mlb network think Manny will get a bigger contract than Harper.

    New manager

    Chip Hale 54, bench coach with the Nationals, was interviewed for about a half hour this afternoon on mlb network. He declined to comment about the Orioles job but admitted he wants to manage again. He was asked a lot of questions about Corbin, the pitcher he managed at Arizona, who just signed with his current team the Nationals and Goldschmidt just traded to St Louis and played for him at Arizona. They asked him detailed questions about each player and without hesitation he gave out details about each player. Very knowledgeable guy. He obviously knows baseball and would be a breath of fresh air if hired by the Orioles.
