    Most disappointing player?

    They were both decent signings. What would you have done when faced with the thin available offseason arms, about $23 million to spend, and a predicted starting staff of Bundy, Gausman, Tillman, Mike Wright and Some Other Variant Of Mike Wright? Cashner has been better than Miley. I expected more out of Cobb, but I didn’t regret signing him. It’s not like Lance Lynn would have moved the needle much.

    20 wins or 50 losses?

    It just dawned on me that the club woukd have to play .450 ball from here on out, winning 43 of the next 94 games, just to “only” lose 100 games. Yeesh.

    Orioles Record Since Celeb Joseph was Demoted

    Celeb is the most famous of the Joseph brothers.

    Orioles Mount Rushmores

    Mt. Rushmore of Orioles pitchers who intentionally let their hat fall off their head during almost every pitch as a distraction, something no umpire or batter complained about because they were terrible anyway: 1. John Pacella Well, OK, that’s it.

    Jones Trade Expectations

    Although I have a feeling if Jones would accept a move to right field, he would become a plus defender again.
  6. That’s about as daring as the CareFirst BlueCross/BlueShield program that donates $50 for each Oriole that draws a walk.

    What’s the consensus about Schoop?

    At this point I’m not convinced the team will even consider trading their semi-old guys.

    What’s the consensus about Schoop?

    Good point.

    What’s the consensus about Schoop?

    If he’s playing hurt (?), that at least would help explain his complete collapse. 5.2 fWAR last year, this year on track for -0.5. That’s as big a projected drop as with Davis, yet I hear little said about him (probably because he’s playing next to Davis).

    What’s the consensus about Schoop?

    Schoop’s OPS is now lower than Gentry’s. Mancini’s OPS is now lower than Rickard’s. 23 games out of the Wildcard slot. Never did I imagine I would be writing those things in mid-June.

    Kakes (Markakis) 2nd on OF All Star Voting in NL

    Ripken seemingly buried everyone else at short from '84 and onward.
  12. Agreed. For every halfway decent signing like Scott Erickson, it seems like there are three or four Sid Fernandez disaster stories.

    Elite Athletes and then other guys.

    I specifically taught myself to switch hit because of Eddie. But I remember the story with him and his brothers was learning to hit the curve by throwing Crisco lids to one another, which broke like a Whiffle ball.

    What’s the consensus about Schoop?

    Agreed, although any majority opinion would have fit my definition. I just didn’t know if there was general talk about him on the broadcasts or such that I missed. Apparently not, and everyone seems equally unsure about the reasons behind his regression. Non-tendering Schoop, though... Leave it to OH to continually shock and amaze me.

    What’s the consensus about Schoop?

    That’s mostly why I posted this, to see if anyone has been talking about what’s behind Schoop’s lack of productivity and whether he’s truly healthy or not. If he’s been playing through something (AJ style), then his season might not get all that much better. I thought he was poised to explode this year. I somewhat suspect Mancini got a little lucky last year and has been a little unlucky this year, as I think he’s made more hard-hit outs than any other Oriole. I suspect he should be somewhere in the middle, like a .260 hitter with occasional pop. He was already iffy in LF even with a plus bat. Now, there’s not much argument to keep him there if a(ny) better option comes along.
