  1. Is it a sure thing Jones isnt coming back next year? I kind of get the feeling he wants to return, even if it is only one year. He has to know at this point his value as a Free Agent is almost minimum.

    Will Chris Davis make it to 502 PA?

    Isnt that what he's doing this year? I dont care if he sets the record or not, His OPS is steadily rising to where it wouldnt surprise me if he finishes with an OPS near .650, which is really bad, just not record setting bad.

    Carmona vs. Hall

    Carmona is rated much higher on mlbpipeline if that means anything. http://m.mlb.com/prospects/2018?list=bal

    Carmona vs. Hall

    Hall is capable of making the spectacular play defensively, and while his arm might grade out as average, he can reach back for more when needed and he's usually very accurate. He will struggle at times with the backhand play, but most feel he can stick at short. If not, his tools also would fit nicely at the keystone. http://m.mlb.com/prospects/2018?list=bal That was the first place i checked, Im sure I read it somewhere, but mlbpipeline seems optimistic.

    Carmona vs. Hall

    Which has the stronger arm? Pretty sure I read somewhere scouts aren't high on Hall sticking at SS.

    Now that the dust has settled

    Unless they plan on signing a Free Agent SS, im not sure the O's have another option, so $5M to fill SS makes sense

    Chris Hoiles' feat was just equalled

    I was in Memorial Stadium for Chris Hoiles first career HR, a 10th inning game winner. Not as dramatic but still memorable.
  8. I think Buck would know better than to try and bring back Davis or Jones to more than a 1 year deal. He has sentimental favorites like any manager will when they're with the same team for 7.5 years. I dont think its a problem if he wants to return as long as he knows his role is limited in the FO.

    Trey Mancini is going to trend up

    A 1B or DH with a sub .700 OPS isnt really what you want out of that position. I understand he's not really a LF either, but thats another argument.

    Bucks recent comments

    I remember reading Buck was thinking of retiring after his contract expires 2018, a few years ago. Looks like he's having second thoughts. I dont really care except for the "favoritism to vets" thing, I dont think it has been a problem because no prospect are really forcing their way onto the team yet.

    Take this for what it's worth....

    After seeing how the Angelos sons operate this year, I would like to see them take the tax hit and keep the team. I dont think the inheritance tax is that high is it? Baltimore has become a pretty seedy town, so you have to put that in consideration when talking about a possible move.

    Mullins is with the Orioles! (edited)

    Other than to make the Orioles slightly more watchable, I see no reason to call Mullins up here. His numbers dont suggest he needs to be rushed. I dont think Mullins is having that great of a year for a prospect. Rickards .415 OBP in Norfolk is alot more impressive, even if its in just 34 games.

    Dan says "tear it completely down"

    Pretty obvious it wont be to another team.
