  1. If Law just says that any random O's pitching prospect won't be a successful major league starter he has a very high chance of being right and recent history is on his side. When the O's successes at developing starting pitching are two high 1st round picks Gausman and Bundy, it looks like Law is right more often than not. Especially when Gausman looks like an ace one start and AAAA pitcher the next (I assume that pattern has continued with Atlanta). Bundy looks a pitcher who has lost his stuff and struggles in just about every outing. He would already be in the bullpen for most major league teams.
  2. With the talent level on this team, I don't think they need any more help to get the #1 pick, unless you're talking about the 2021 pick.
  3. As long as there's an unnamed scout that "likes the way the ball comes out of his hand." Extra points if there name is highly unusual. Maybe the O's can corner the market on players like Yorkislandy.
  4. In a few years, one of these guys could be the next Jomar Reyes!
  5. Now Davis not only has a rock bottom average, OBP, SLG, etc, etc., he's a punchless singles hitter. I thought he would continue to hit for power even if he was hitting .150. I guess I was wrong.
  6. I hear the wine and dine section is a real doozy.
  7. The number of starting pitchers who regularly pitch 7 or more innings could be counted on 1 hand, or at most 2. Its just a different game today. There might need to be a new metric invented "O's quality start". This would be pitching 5 or more innings allowing 4 or less runs. I would bet that less than 1/2 of the O's starts would qualify.
  8. Question: Why was @mikeyaz18 never called up in any of his 6 years with the Orioles? Because Yaz is a AAAA prospect who's upside is Joey Rickard.
  9. Low walk rate and very low home run rate is a good alternate path to major league success. I wish Bundy could learn this path. Something close to 50% of runs are now scored by HR. Surrendering almost no HR is a huge advantage as a pitcher. I would propose it is almost as big an advantage as striking out a large number of hitters.
  10. The O's are leading the league in players with 4 names.
  11. Davis's At bats have been cut way back. That has to be a positive. I'm sure that when Elias was hired, there was a timeline for Davis to "prove" himself. That timeline seems to be drawing near. Buck started Davis for 95%+ of the games he was healthy.
  12. In the O's way of thinking, the scorpion might eventually turn into a kitten. Plus, you paid a lot of money for the scorpion.
