  1. Probably stating the obvious, but the offers are probably just too low. Givens is the worst he's been as a pro, so it makes sense for us to wait a year to let him rebuild value rather than sell low. As for Villar, they have to have 25 MLB-ish players on the roster to play games. Without anyone that can handle full-time duties ready to backfill him, maybe they're deciding to hold on to him in leiu of a poor return.
  2. Agree. I'd like to keep Villar and Mancini until next year at least. I think both of them can continue to build value, and they represent 40% of the watchable players on this team.
  3. No matter how many times I watch that trailer, I can't get into it. I love Top Gun, but this doesn't look good to me. I hope they prove me wrong.
  4. We do have a pretty decent farm system now, with lots of guys 1-2 years away. In fact, I think we'll see many of them in Baltimore in 2020. Rutchman won't take 2+ years to develop. In fact, he will probably be up sometime next year, if I had to guess. Lots can change in 2 years regarding prospect status for a bunch of players. Free Agency is a thing, too. it's not inconceivable to think that we're a full roster churn away from our next competitive team. Means is the closest guy I can think of that might still be here, but only because he's just begun his ML clock. But you have a good point, if this is the case, 2022 could be too soon.
  5. If somehow we're able to accelerate the rebuild by a year, and we're competing in 2021 instead of 2022, it's possible. However, I tend to think that - unless these players develop into immovable pieces - nobody on today's roster will be on the next good Orioles team.
  6. This is the first time he's been a full-time player in his career. Hopefully it was a matter of the league adjusting to him, then him adjusting to that (and figuring it out).
  7. I think Means is a mid-to-back-end rotation guy on a contender and Mancini is a bottom-half hitter. Personal opinion. That's it as far as O's on contenders go.
  8. I like Trey. He's one of 5 guys or so that I actually enjoy watching (Villar, Smith Jr., Stewart, and Means). But it's hard to be excited about any of them. I'm still of the opinion that we're a full 25 roster away from contention. Maybe Means is the exception if he is the real deal.
  9. Everybody does. But there are 160 million reasons why A will be the choice for a while.
  10. I'd add a 9th item: the infield defense has been worse than what I expected. We've turned a lot of double plays, but overall, the infield defense has been sloppy. Mental/concentration errors and sloppy play are unacceptable, even in a team that's rebuilding from scratch. Losing because 3/5 or 4/5 of your rotation is bad and because you have no middle relief is one thing, but at a minimum, we need to be able to catch the ball.
  11. Davis just won't ever get the benefit of the doubt on close pitches ever again. JBJ is just insane.
