    Should Mike and Sig convert Hunter Harvey to a reliever?

    Well he got through batting practice. https://www.rotoworld.com/baseball/mlb/player/20020/hunter-harvey Hunter Harvey (forearm) said he felt great after throwing a six-minute session of batting practice on Monday. The session was half as long as the other pitchers, but it was still a significant sign of progress for Harvey, who hadn't thrown to hitters since last June. The 2013 first-rounder has dealt with all sorts of injury issues in his career, including shoulder and forearm injuries last year. It's hard to count on him for this reason, but the Orioles are still hoping he can turn into something.

    Anyone Following Manny? (Signs with San Diego)

    I completely get what your saying, but the Padres did front load the Hosmer contract, so I guess it wouldn't be surprising if they did so again with Machado (not saying it is wise). https://www.spotrac.com/mlb/san-diego-padres/eric-hosmer-8531/
  3. What Tx said!!! Get there CD.
  4. Agree completely. Completely PR. Except this teacher is several hundreds of thousands of Orioles fans and showing up early is the handpicked apple from an exotic apple farm and cleaning it to perfection for that new shiny look. But I am also sure that you’re right that Hyde probably does not care as long as he arrives on time with the outlook you suggested. But he did sound slightly put off by the question for whatever reason.
  5. Could be, I would hope otherwise.
  6. Hyde was asked on The Fan about Davis arrival schedule. He just said, I haven't seen him yet...sorta blew off the question and sounded a bit irritated (not with the question, but with the context). That's reading a lot into one quick question on a radio interview. But I would think Davis would like to make a good impression to everyone and arrive early...even if he doesn't believe it will help him prepare at all.
  7. Man I want to be there right now and not sitting here at my desk: https://twitter.com/masnRoch/status/1096066138637848577
  8. My bad, read it wrong. Josh Rogers contract was selected. I was reading it as both were going on the restricted list. Whoops.
  9. Whats up with Josh Rogers then? We got him in the Britton trade, I think. I know he didn't fair well in his MLB outings, but only 23 and a lefty. Seems odd.

    Frank WAS here... This one comes from my heart

    Heard you read on the Fan Roy, thanks for sharing, really enjoyed listening.
  13. Those folks are just pointing to the allowed spend on international free agents vs total budget of what might be allowed to be spent. You do understand the Orioles do not have 6M from somewhere just for international right? Really just making sure.

    Adam Jones returning? Unlikely, but would it be bad?

    https://twitter.com/BNightengale/status/1092843030397124609 It's shameful that 5-time All-Star outfielder Adam Jones, one of #MLB's greatest ambassadors, role models and clubhouse leaders, still does not have a job this winter. He's still only 33, has produced 25 or more HRs in 7 of the last 8 seasons, and remains an elite player. 9:50 AM - 5 Feb 2019

    Gavin Cecchini released by mets

    We didn’t claim him. http://www.rotoworld.com/player/mlb/7136/gavin-cecchini Mets sent INF Gavin Cecchini outright to Triple-A Syracuse. Cecchini cleared waivers after being designated for assignment and will remain in the organization. The former first-round pick as been a disappointment, but the Mets will surely be happy to keep him around as depth. Feb 1 - 4:05 PM
