  1. OK, time to grade the offseason moves

    Did we get Brian Cashman too???Thats a good haul!
  2. OK, time to grade the offseason moves

    I completely agree with this. I wouldn't have signed Chris..I would tried to sign Moose and Jay...and try to sign Lynn...
  3. Cobb to Orioles (Confirmed by Roch Kubatko)

    3rd round pick..not horrible...
  4. Cobb to Orioles (Confirmed by Roch Kubatko)

    They "saved" at least 12-15 million. Cobb hasn't been outstanding at OPCY 4.62 ERA and 1.54 WHIP in 7 starts career..but its STILL an upgrade over what we were looking at...
  5. Cobb to Orioles (Confirmed by Roch Kubatko)

    looks like 3 for 50. A bit of an overpay IMO.But they deparetly need an arm of quality. He's no ACE but a solid 3..and if Harvey comes a long ...youd have a pretty good young 4 man rotation...with Harvey waiting in the wings...
  6. Justin Turner out with broken wrist

    I know from talking to Manny that he loves LA and would love to play there someday if the Orioles don't(they won't) re-sign him. I'd be thrilled to have Manny in LA...anywhere but the Yankees or any team in the AL East.
  7. Castro moves into the lead for the 5th starter

    Nothing to get excited about. We need more starters desperately.
  8. NEED one of the Big Three Pitchers Left

    Buck told me in a TV interview posted in this board that he"hopes the Oriole pitching IS finished upgrading". Really. He said that. He was trying to defend "his guys" and also not trying to look desperate to FA pitchers...but I think he was being disingenuous.

    lets see how the rest of the contract shoes out...20-20 hindsight is easy to judge by...I also wanted to sign Davis too. I admit I was very wrong...Sue me.
  10. Tillman

    Frankly Frobby, it was "glaringly obvious" he couldn't pitch last year and he swears he wasn't hurt...
  11. Quick thoughts from Sarasota ...

    They're still in on Cobb and Lynn. (I still don't see Cobb..but a good source said don't be surprised if they can get him).The longer it goes, the better the chances of landing one or the other. Manny is locked in. Mancini looks great again and is bigger. Really working on his OF defense.O's love Mountcastle but not for this year. Don't rule out Hunter Harvey before July. Beckham is energized at 3rd base and is excited about playing there.Austin Hays will likely NOT start the season with Baltimore. Rasmus probably starts in RF. Trumbo is fit and on a mission. Davis looks lost again.Bundy hasn't thrown a good breaking pitch yet.Hes been battered, but may be trying some stuff and isn't sharp yet. Gausman won't miss a start, and is not hurting from the collision.Orioles brass loves Austin Wynns can hot and plays solid defense......they love Cisco too. Joseph is still their best game caller and framer. He's all business.Adam told MLB Channel today he won't talk to them if they talk contract.O's will keep Santander on the roster for about 60 days and see what he brings. I heard O's tried to sign Ohtani(Angels) out of HS but were turned down. Britton is close to running...has no limp and feels great...still probably won't return before late June at the earliest. Brach AND Givens will close.Givens one of the most coveted players in trade talks. Thats all for now.
  12. I'm feeling more optimistic about 2018

  13. Does adding Moustakas alter the balance of power in AL East?

    But in the long term. Beckham can move back to ss when Manny leaves and Moustakas would take up some of the power loss...Im for it.It won't happen though...
  14. Colby Rasmus (Update: O's sign him to minor league deal)

    I think he just did.
