  1. Is he saying significantly from where we are right now, or significantly from last year? The latter is obvious, although neither is really surprising. No QO to Jones, but that is not surprising. Trumbo and Cashner if they can find a buyer, maybe Beckham if they nontender.

    Chris Davis Trade Possible in 2019-20?

    I highly doubt Mr. Buffett goes for that.

    Grade the Gausman Deal

    Lol, everyone said "Britton should have been traded at the deadline last year. Why did the Orioles wait so long?" OH is a tough crowd to please.

    Grade the Gausman Deal

    Look, I agree the inclusion of O'Day is a red flag that budget was a factor. However, we don't know what other deals were on the table that the O's passed up. Gausman has zero value to us while we are rebuilding and everyone knows it, and he will not be a bargain after this year. Part of rebuilding is getting rid of bad contracts. If O'Day's $12M goes into the bank and turns into 2+ WAR in 2021 or 2022, it will be worth it. It seems nobody was willing to do their top prospects. Most of the contending teams were already set at positions where we could offer upgrades. Would have been nice to get Meadows and Glasnow from the Pirates, but it is possible (likely) that they preferred Archer.

    Favorite call up?

    Mullins passes the eye test. Fry and Wynns have probably contributed the most.

    vs. RED SOX, 8/11 (Game Two)

    Mullins got a great jump there ...

    Live arm but this guy is terrible.

    Felt that one coming. Glad there was nobody on base.

    Mullins is with the Orioles! (edited)

    Someone on the game thread posted that he was something like top 10 in MLB running the bases per Statcast. On that triple, I think Mancini was surprised that to see Mullins show up anywhere in the vicinity. Hopefully he gets out of the way next time and Mullins catches that ball. Let's just agree that the comment on Mullins' intelligence was not racist, but with a history of racism in this country, comments that are complimentary of black athletes can be perceived that way. Malike said how he perceived it from his perspective while keeping it civil. I'm okay with that as well as the responses.

    +1. If we can somehow move Trumbo and/or eat Davis' contract, there would be room for Jones in RF. Might be good insurance as well if Mullins struggles vs lefties.

    Let's Beat the Red Sox (8/10)

    Saw the "highlight" of that play. Yes, I think Mancini was probably used to having Jones be about 20 yards away on that ball so he didn't think to get out of the way. Very exciting that we might run some of those down.

    Just checking in...how has Cedric looked on D?

    I thought that last year. Would make sense if it weren't for Trumbo and Davis.
