    3 @ NYY, 3 @ BOS, 4 v HOU.... How many wins?

    I’m always happy to be wrong if it means more wins for the Orioles.

    Dickerson would be the one guy they currently have who I’d keep. But I’d like a clause in a new deal that keeps him in the organization in some capacity if they decide to go with someone else later.

    50 games left - call the record

    On the bright side, even if they lose out they can only have 117 losses. 🤨

    Will Chris Davis make it to 502 PA?

    Diminishing skills. He might change the weight of the bat, but from what I’ve seen he’s not changing anything. His bat speed isn’t magically going to improve even if he works at it. And guys with a plus speed tool slow down with age and Davis was never that.

    Davis isn’t improving his bat speed or foot speed at this stage.

    vs. YANKEES, 9/23

    Wilkerson with a couple nice plays today.

    And that. No good reason for him not to get reps vs LHP.

    They’re Buck’s reasons. A rookie with good plate discipline and a history of hitting LHP should be in the lineup. Especially when Andreoli is the alternative.

    Someone explain the platooning of Stewart. He hit LHP better in MiL.

    It’s hard to for Davis, you mean? I’ve seen many players adjust their stance, position in the box (open or closed), lower or raise the position of their hands. How many times did Ripken make adjustments in season? It’s incomprehensible to me that he’s made no visible changes. I think he’s comfortable in what he’s done and is reticent to try anything new out of fear. Completely speculative on my part, but it’s not beyond the realm of possibility.

    Excuse me, but weren’t you in favor of the deal?

    Because of all the times you interviewed him and he seemed mundane?

    Johnson and Kendall certainly merit consideration, but @Luke-OH suggestion of Buck Britton would be a bold move. That’s how I know he won’t get it. Beyond that, I thought John Russell got a raw deal in Pittsburgh. The teams he managed were horrible. He had no shot of winning there. He’d get an interview from me.
