  1. Playoffs? You kidding me? I'll bet most minor leaguers have had playoff experience at some point in their baseball careers, whether it's at a lower level of the minors, college or high school. These are the best players on the best teams in the country Second, I'll bet if you asked most major leaguers if they change how they play/prepare in the playoffs I'll bet they'll tell you that the atmosphere is different but they do the same stuff that worked for them in the regular season. I just don't think you can get to professional baseball without having been in some kind of athletic pressure situation, in most cases
  2. I'm not surprised, as I believe analytics suggest intentional walking someone is almost never a good idea, statistically speaking
  3. Eshelman is fun to watch. His picture is next to the definition of junkballer in the dictionary, but he works fast, knows how to pitch and the command is mostly excellent
  4. How can we call the O's family friendly entertainment with all this fisting?
  5. Someone needs to take Gary aside and explain to him why he shouldn't say "fisted"
  6. I agree, but what makes you so sure his "true talent" is last year's .715?
  7. Ssssh, I know that. I want to enjoy some good cognitive dissonance
  8. 2017 plus this season is a slightly bigger sample size than last year. So again, why is last year the norm and not this year or 2017?
  9. Why is last year the norm and not this year?
  10. I think we both agree Brady shouldn't be picking who we sign. As for Mike Wright, it's possible to be an elite athlete and a poor Major League pitcher That's fair, I can accept that answer. I do think Elias has the ability to stop him from overstepping his bounds though I think there's as much evidence Brady is good at nutrition/conditioning as anyone else in such a role in MLB. Players have raved about him and the guy seems to know his stuff. I mean, if Elias has someone he'd rather have in that role I have no problem with that. I'd just hate to see us lose a guy who's good at his job because he's a symbol of the old regime--a regime that clearly isn't running the show anymore
  11. Does anyone really have a problem with Brady being in charge of strength and conditioning as long as that's all he does? Dude is a physical specimen
  12. These cameras and analytics sound awesome, but I don't think you can just get rid of traditional scouts entirely without paying some kind of price
  13. Couldn't most service time gaming be solved by declaring players free agents after 6 or 7 years of service time instead of the 6.190 or whatever it currently takes? There'd at least be no more three weeks in April when you belong in the majors
  14. T.J. MacFarland was also a rule 5, IIRC
