  1. I agree it would be nice if he is the next greatest QB of all time. Hopefully at least top 5. I think I need to see at least ONE more pre-season game to know for sure though. 😁
  2. I see the Wilkerson in CF thing as a pure desperation play. We literally have no good options. Or at least that's what Elias seems to think.
  3. Don't you dare blaspheme that man in my presence!!!!
  4. This team has so many flipping DH's. How in the world do we fit them all. I don't think Elias loves the idea of Mancini / Stewart / Mountcastle in the outfield.
  5. I'll just link it again cuz I think some of the information in there can really inform the discussion here: https://www.baltimoresun.com/sports/orioles/bs-sp-orioles-spring-training-0228-20150227-story.html
  6. According to the article I linked he was denied the exemption in 2013...........when he hit 53 HR and led the league. It says he did not even reapply for the exemption in 2014 when he got suspended. Before the 2015 season he got the exemption for a different drug (Vyvanse) so presumably he has been taking that ever since. He had a 47 HR season and a 38 HR season in back to back years in 15-16, so he has certainly shown he can hit with the new medication.
  7. https://www.baltimoresun.com/sports/orioles/bs-sp-orioles-spring-training-0228-20150227-story.html It isn't overtly stated here, but the way I read it is that he was diagnosed with ADHD in 2008 and started taking Adderall to treat it. AFAIK that is a prescription drug, so I have to assume he had a prescription unless there is evidence to the contrary.
  8. My only comment on this is that I believe that Davis absolutely has been diagnosed with ADHD and had perfectly legitimate reasons for taking Adderall. I think he was just aloof about the paperwork.
  9. I'm with you on the lying about his workouts, thought about mentioning that but decided to be a tad more diplomatic. I don't think that little "disagreement on the facts" between him and the hitting coach speaks well of him either. And while yeah his Adderall suspension was also his fault for not getting the paperwork done in time or whatever for the exemption, I think that just speaks more to his laziness / aloofness than anything else. Not that that's a positive thing.
  10. He needed to make adjustments in 2018. He didn't. He clearly needed to make adjustments this year. He didn't? Maybe 2020 will have a new tagline - the Year of the Adjustments.
  11. His OBP has gone from the .230 range to the .250 range during that time. His AVG has gone from a low point of .160 up to .198. Yes that is improvement but I can't really say that it's enough to give me much optimism per se.
  12. I am pretty positive about us getting another 1:1 or 1:2 draft pick next year. Does that count?
  13. Aww, you think Trumbo will be able to play in an MLB game this year? I didn't take you for the nostalgic, starry-eyed optimist type. I have no doubt he will try.
  14. What is the overall consensus here for Mountcastle being a September call up? I actually don't think Elias will do it for service time reasons, although he would never ever say it publicly. But is that the general consensus?
