    Brady clearly wants the OA on his side.
  2. Wow, this guy is less than 5 years older than me and went to a school right nearby from which I knew quite a few kids...kinda makes me wonder what I'm doing with my life.

    Grade the Gausman Deal

    Haha indeed. Is it a good enough return in general though? Better than a D or a C?

    Grade the Gausman Deal

    Even if they spend it on Víctor Víctor, is it even a good enough return?

    Grade the Gausman Deal

    This one's pretty clearly an F, isn't it? Not sure what we were doing. Baffling especially because the returns for Machado and Britton were quite good compared to what could be expected, IMO.

    Luis Ortiz 2018

    Yeah, it was tongue and cheek. Mods can feel free to remove that part if they don't see any humor in it.

    Luis Ortiz 2018

    @Luke-OH You said you've been watching his starts closely, what did you take away from his start the other day (6 IP, 1 ER, 1 BB, 3 K)?

    Who stood out in July?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't see a Luis Ortiz thread. He had a good start the other day after a somewhat rough first start in the Orioles organization.

    The Victor Victor Mesa/Sandy Gaston thread

    So to save me reading 50 pages, is Victor Victor basically a foregone conclusion that he's signed?

    Grade the Schoop Deal

    The Machado and Britton deals seem like they were quite good; this and the Gausman deal look pretty bad to me.

    Extend Dan and Buck... Now

    Indeed, hence why it's not necessary for them to have ever "put a jock in". You could even argue it's an advantage.

    Extend Dan and Buck... Now

    Whether you like it or not, some of the best GMs currently and in the past years "have never put a jock on."

    Extend Dan and Buck... Now

    I know who to go to when I want to convince someone to buy my lemon of a car. Dan said very similar things when he was hired, as @Can_of_corn pointed out in another thread; I'm more interested in his actions. His trades so far this summer have been good, but he has a long track record here, and it's extremely spotty, as LookItsPuck points out, and tbh, he didn't even get into some of the moves that offended me most. Buck, well, look, I'll always be eternally grateful to him for working some kind of voodoo magic to get us consistently outwin what level we were really playing at, I'll always love him--he was immortalized on Seinfeld for god's sake, how much better does it get as a baseball manager?--but he definitely needs to go. Even more obviously than Dan.

    Orioles "No one is untouchable in rebuild"

    Gausman isn't that young, isn't that controllable (2 years left), and Bundy, while a bit younger (though a few months from turning 26), is a guy with a history of injuries, with decreased velocity that is only going to decrease further. I would trade them both for a good package without hesitation. Gausman, if we could extend him and do something to actually develop him, I wouldn't mind keeping around--as he's much more likely to age well than Bundy--but we should be opening up talks right away if that's the case.

    Yusniel Diaz 2018

    Gausman was pretty exciting too, to be fair, even if he's turned out badly. (Honestly, not sure you can't say that for Bundy too)
