    Marlins Add Even More Mesa $

    The poster said something about he didn't want the Orioles to give up all of AA to get these guys. These guys haven't risen above Domincan Summer League yet. The Orioles got the International money for Brach and we gave up 750k of it to get some 59 year old guy in rookie ball. You don't need to move one of your top 30 prospects to get slot money. Its not like the other teams are going to use the slots now anyway.

    A Few Questions About Some Former Orioles

    DJ Stewart didn't hit well in Delmarva and they promoted him and he hit well in Frederick and Bowie. He will be 25 by the time spring training roles around. No reason to hold him back. It is sink or swim time.

    Well that makes zero sense unless the Orioles aren't interested in bidding on any of them. When every team's money re-sets there will also be a ton more players that are available and a lot of them will be better than they are.

    If your 16 and never had a dime I think signing as quickly as possible is probably what most would do. You can help your family as well.

    I am talking about Gaston and Mesa JR. I am sure what you mean by "too".

    One of the guys is 16 and another is 17. If the make the majors one day it is in the distant future. By that time the Orioles and Marlins might be contenders.

    Week 7 vs New Orleans

    Saints are 3rd in Yards per Game. Ravens are 9th in Yards per game. Saints are 26th in defensive yards per game. 30th in passing defensive yards per game. But #1 in rushing defensive yards. Our running game is not good so we have to count on Flacco coming up big against their poor passing defense. The Orleans have a 115 passing rating against.

    A Few Questions About Some Former Orioles

    No prospects seem to hit well at Norfolk. Pitchers park that doesn't provide a good training ground for players who are going to be playing in the American League east in Camden Yards.

    Which destroys everyone's theory about how much these guys want to play in Miami over Baltimore.

    I am guessing you haven't a clue as to whom the Marlins have given up. The last two guys traded where a 17 and 19 year old playing in the Domincan. They gave up a guy who struggled in high A at age 22 In the biggest haul of money they traded a reliever who is up for arbitration next year whom they probably didn't want to pay anyway. The guy was sub-replacement level this year. Really if you are going to make a post like you just did you could spend the time to actually see what the Marlins traded. Otherwise you are just wasting everyone's time reading your post.

    It is weird how this going on so long. If these guys were being hyped as superstars of the future it would be frustrating. Instead is just perplexing.

    Ex-Orioles in the postseason

    I wonder how people on here will react when Machado is on the Yankees and does something dirty to one of our players.

    Machado: Hustling is 'not my cup of tea'

    Part of this is on Buck. If he had sat him down for a few games when he doesn't run out a ball he would learn. The Orioles let Machado act like a badly behaved toddler for 7 years. And people on here supported him. Now he is out in the real world and there are repercussions. I am so glad he is gone.

    Manny hasn't been in minor league ball for many years. If is still holding a grudge after all these years he has serious issues. Yeah the 10k fine is a joke. You might as not even give him a fine at that amount.

    Probably had a dinner date and wanted to get the game over so he could get to it.
