    Now that the dust has settled

    This team will be awful for perhaps 4-5 years. Theres just no getting around it. Thus will not be a 1989 "Wy Not" Oriole team next year.

    tell me again why Jace Peterson is starting?

    No, but I think its time to bring up the younger players. Screw the service time thing. Lets see what they can do.Besides, he is awful.
  3. Played in more than half the games. Hasn't hit. Little power. He has speed bit doesn't hit well enough to reach base. Plays a lot of positions, but so did Flaherty. Makes less than $500 k. Oh, its getting clearer to me now. He's just a place holder.Still, why not try some other place holder?
  4. Just watch Gausman completely become a star for the Braves. He had a good one the other night...hes on his way, Something IS broken in pitching evaluation and development with our pitching...and its been that way for a long time....

    Brady helped with plan to convert Yacabonis to starter

    I haven't been overly impressed with ANY new starter we have tossed out there, after a few starts. I thought Ramirez might've been one. I once thought Castro had a chance,and well before that Wright. None of them looks like a long term MLB starter...I know, give them more of a chance. The Orioles are off Broadway right now...looking for someone to put their name in "lights". So far, its pure "summer stock" talent.

    Boy, do WE stink!

    I hope I'm there in 3 years. I hope WE are here in 3 years.

    Grade the Gausman Deal

    Moose...he already has! I watched last nights game. He was a different pitcher than we had.

    Grade the Gausman Deal

    Why do we always dump pitchers who "get it" somewhere else? Gausman is a young guy with a big arm and we don't even have anyone like him in our system...Yes, he didn't deliver for us consistently. But we always seem to lack the people to help make the adjustments for our pitchers. That, to me, is no coincidence.

    That is all.

    Mullins is with the Orioles! (edited)

    I LOVE Jones and always will, but that doesn't mean we should sign him for next year.

    Chris Davis

    Remember, it was Buck, NOT Duquette who championed the Davis deal(so did I ). The Davis contract is an albatross.We need to see if we can release him and eat the money...he actually hampers the progress of this ball club going forward. Smaller revenue franchise can't afford to make such a bad mistake. And this is and remains, a bad mistake.

    The Case For: Austin Wynns

    He's definitely a better hitter than Joseph. But we could use a front line catcher at some point.

    Trey Mancini is going to trend up

    I think Mancini will be a solid player for us, and a Baltimore type fan favorite. He works hard and is an intense competitor.Id like to see him supplant Davis at 1b,and I believe he will end up with reasonably respectable power numbers. He got into slump this year and couldn't find his way out. The knee injury didn't help either. I think he'll be fine.
