    I mean, he had a good year in 2017 too. I don't think this is a Lance Lynn situation. I think Morton is actually a good pitcher.

    ...and they're also about to lose Keuchel and already lost McCullers for the 2019 season. I wouldn't be surprised if the concede to trading Tucker for one of the aces that is rumored to be on the market.

    Love that signing by the Rays. Affordable, short term deal. I wouldn't be surprised of Morton posts better numbers than Archer this coming season.

    Hyde: New O’s Manager

    Roch's sources are who he works for. He has no "off the record" sources. I'm not knocking him for not breaking the story, I'm knocking everyone else for actually regarding him as a reporter. He's not. He's a public relations person, which is absolutely fine, but for god's sake lets just call a spade a spade.

    Reporter = impartial. He's as much of a reporter as a person who hosts a paid infomercial for a product. You'd be better off using a term like public relations to describe his role.

    Will Hyde Bring Any Cubs Coaches/Free Agents With Him?

    Are you able to sleep now that they've finally hired a manager? I know that it was of grave importance to you.

    The Orioles probably need to sign another SP (to replace Gausman). Should the Orioles be kicking Charlie Morton's tires given this news? The Rangers have "strong interest" in free agent Charlie Morton, according to The Star-Telegram's Jeff Wilson. Morton is believed to prefer either returning to Houston or heading home to a team located near his Delaware home, but thus far, it seems like the Rays and Rangers have made him the biggest priority. The Rangers are also looking at Lance Lynn, who could be a more realistic option for them

    Saying that Roch is a reporter implies some level of impartiality. He works for MASN, which is partly owned by the Orioles. You can't be impartial when you're on the team's payroll. He might be good for the occasional tidbit, but we really shouldn't be looking to Roch for any type of breaking news. He "reports" exactly what the team tells him to report.

    Settle down. It was a joke. My point was that we really should be looking to the national media for news / updates, not Roch. And I have NO problem with Elias not announcing it until the ink is dry on the contract.

    It's not bashing. It is what it is. If someone in the O's organization told Roch the sky was purple then Roch would report it verbatim even if there was a big blue beautiful sky in the background.

    Rosenthal just doubled down on the report on MLB TV. Rosenthal and the national media aren't buying what the Roch is cookin'.

    Or perhaps he could have just not tweeted anything until after the news officially breaks which I'm sure will be in a few hours.

    I find it hysterical that Roch is doubling down on denying this. A company man to his grave.

    I guess that would make Roch his sleeveless sweatshirt then.
