    Luis Ortiz, aka Bartolo Colon v2

    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, aka Bartolo Colon v2

    @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.

    Orioles - Victor Victor Mesa

    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)
  11. It seems to me like a fantastic return. Yes, he should've been traded two seasons ago, or a year ago, and certainly this winter, but for the time we've actually traded him it looks to me like we've done quite well.

    TT: Orioles get Haul for Machado

    Cheers, thanks for this, makes me much more optimistic! I knew there must've been something I was missing as basically everyone in the scouting community seems to rate him highly.

    Big time talk from Dan

    Was it Dan's decision to trade away legitimate prospects/young players for marginal pieces that tended to be rentals? Because if so, I'm not sure I think Dan is the guy to be forward thinking enough to overcome massive financial disadvantages...

    TT: Orioles get Haul for Machado

    I know this is a bit off topic, but why is Mountcastle rated so highly? With his plate discipline issues it seems unlikely to this humble, largely ignorant (hence why I ask!) observer's eyes, that he will ever hit enough to be anything more than an average-slightly above average OF, so what am I missing?

    Machado Trade Expectations

    Amen to that. It's hard to get the information I want from a 350 p. thread that has 3-4 new pages every time I refresh.
