  1. https://www.mlb.com/news/adley-rutschman-compared-to-top-100-prospects/c-303363898?tid=151437456 "But the college season is just around the corner with Rutschman's first game with Oregon State coming on Feb. 15. And he was No. 1 on that list and, barring any unforeseen circumstances, should be in the conversation to go No. 1 overall to the Orioles." On this current list, I could see Rutschman slotting in somewhere in that Mize-to-Bart range, so let's put him at No. 17 and move Mize to 18. As for next year, if he replicates his monster sophomore season again as a junior, I could see him cementing himself as the No. 1 pick in June and debuting on our 2020 preseason list somewhere between where Swanson and Rodgers ranked in their debut. How does the end of the Top 10 sound? I love the idea of drafting and building around the middle of the diamond. This year's and next year's draft should determine how quickly we get back to competing. Rutschman could be the "safer" of the two between him and Witt and a great place for this Front Office to start accumulating top line talent.

    Davis a two-way Player?

    Seems like the idea may be catching on around the league. Why not give it a try?

    Opening Day tickets for Season Plan members

    If anyone is not going to go I would purchase the tickets from you. My son is 10 and has never been to opening day so we would need just 2. Please send me a pm.

    Davis Signs With Baltimore (7/$161M, incl $42M deferred)

    Have some mixed feelings over this. It got to the point where Buck was commenting to the media and I felt like if he didn't want to be here then move on. A bit excited to see something new like Cespesdes. But I'm sure as soon as Davis trots around the diamond all will be forgotten.
  7. I can appreciate the perspective from the traditionalist, purist, and elitist. They make similar arguments to Baltimore fans yelling O during the anthem. But I took my youth baseball team to a game and the wave broke out. They loved it and it made their night even better. I understand we live in a society where everything is offensive. Songs, waves, chants, can all be ignored if you don't enjoy them. Its a game played for entertainment.

    Fanfest Changes Needed

    It really wasn't a great experience overall. While I had several good moments, the lines and crowds really diminished the experience. I think its great they draw such a large crowd. They will need to offer more events, activities, etc to fight the lines and crowds.

    Manfred: Eliminate Shifts

    Mentioning he left a Baltimore Hotel is a clear shot over the bow. He hates us. Now where did I leave that tin foil hate?
  10. Its painful to watch Nick run after a ball down the line or in the gap.

    2014 Orioles Slogan

    Baltimore Orioles, aMASN' riches for our owners.
  14. I ran into AJ at the grocery store and asked him if he was going to play this year. He said 'not sure'. True story.
