  1. MARCH 17th - MARCH 19th (All Non-Televised Games)

    Ivan Contreras has not played baseball professionally in six years. Looks to me like it was a joke. Or that Toronto invited him to come back for one game to retire as a Dunedin Blue Jay.
  2. MARCH 17th - MARCH 19th (All Non-Televised Games)

    I guess this is someone's idea of a joke. They failed to mention that Dwight Smith, jr's father is Dwight Smith, that Kacy Clemens' father is Roger and that Ivan Contreras -- whose father, I guess, is Jose -- was released by Dunedin in 2012. Also, D.J. Davis's father, Wayne, was a former minor leaguer for the Jays.
  3. Cobb only thread

    Hoping to catch up with them later for a couple of St. Patrick's Day libations. I will try to talk some sense into them. Maybe we'll roll a couple games of duckpin.
  4. Cobb only thread

    Oh yeah, I too can see Cobb and his agent huddled together around a transistor radio somewhere in the range of 105.7 FM's signal. I can even hear their mighty guffaws! The best thing about this is that those two are concentrated solely on the Orioles, not paying any attention to the other 29 teams in the league.
  5. A Team Full of Machados

    Either way is fine by me. I can't remember ever getting worked up because of a conversation about him.
  6. A Team Full of Machados

    Good pick. So what is the winning percentage?
  7. A Team Full of Machados

    Yes. And after I saw the new Cobb thread I couldn't believe my eyes when I learned that the previous on was derailed because of... Ryan Flaherty!?!
  8. A Team Full of Machados

    I had said that Machados would play .750 against Mancinis. Any Guesses on percentages against Chris Davis's Cal Ripkens Brady Andersons Frank Robinsons
  9. A Team Full of Machados

    Sorry you were "collateral damage." The original thread was closed. Probably should have edited your name. Will do that in the future when not addressing someone directly.
  10. Updates on Hunter Harvey

    This comment piqued my curiosity. And started me worrying... What are you saying here?
  11. A Team Full of Machados

    How successful would a team full of Manny Machados be? Manny is one of the few players who would excel at every position on the diamond: Starting Pitcher #1 - #5, Fastball, sitting 91 mph, topping at 94 -- 75% Slider, 85 mph, 15% Change: 82 mph, 7% Curve: 80 mph, 3% Manny has nice separation for a non-pitcher Per pitcher stats (not supplying W-L records) 180 IPs, 190 Hs, 75 BBs, 20 HRs, 150Ks Not to belabor the point, but the bullpen rates look much better. The closer hits 97 regularly. And his 2-seamer is WICKEDOK, I don't really know what that visual is meant to express, but closer Manny would light a lot of people on fire. And then there is a projectable triple slash of ,280/.340/.520 with 35 doubles and 35 homers at every position on the diamond and at DH. Also, superior reactions, instincts speed and throwing arm at every position. His fault, which would be exposed exponentially at catcher and in the outfield, is his sloppy footwork/throwing mechanics. Evaluation: Machado is close to the perfect baseball player. This is an illogical, emotional response. My saying that a team of Machados would win 75% of games against a team of Mancinis does not imply that I "might as well be a Yankees fan." Suggesting I become a Yankee fan is a vapid taunt. You say that you "like it how the Orioles have to work hard to win," but they haven't been to a World Series in 35 years. A #16 seed will defeat a #1 seed in the NCAA basketball tournament before "a team full of Trey Mancini type players" goes to the World Series. Yeah, just had to mention my prescience, It is rare indeed. #16 UMBC ROCKS! I should have stopped by tonight and helped to Philadelphia the campus. But what would a team full of Machados play against a team full of Jonathan Schoops? Would any other presumed positional player be able to throw fast enough as pitchers to shut down lineups of Bundys and Gausmans. Would a team of healthy Zach Brittons actually perform better than any other team of Orioles players, even a team of Machados?
  12. Camden Depot: Bundy's Second Half

    There are plenty of starters whose statistical ratios would improve if they pitched 2 - 3 outs over 2-3 appearances per week. That doesn't mean they would become "better" or more valuable in that role than they are as a starter. It's hard enough finding competent starters as it is. Why waste a competent starter by transferring him to the bullpen. Who would prefer: A) Bundy as a Starter, Mike Wright in the pen B) Mike Wright as a starter, Bundy in the pen
