    Gausman Versus Archer

    Aren't PTBNLs normally much lower profile guys than Baz? That's a crazy haul for a pitcher who's best years seem to be behind him. Kudos to the Rays FO. Wow. Their farm system is stacked BTW. They have a chance to be very good, very soon.

    Orioles IFA Signings Thread

    Flaco de Oro is the nickname of a famous Mexican composer, Augustin Lara. I'm guessing he's listening to him to chill out because he's starting to get frustrated that he's falling behind schedule with his goals. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yHaqaIM1qLU

    Brady Anderson's feat has been equaled

    Schweet, thanks. And someone correct me if I'm wrong, but Trout is like, kind of on pace to be the greatest player ever, isn't he?

    Oh, I've noticed 😔

    Yea, me too, any day of the week. I was factoring in marketability as well. Mookie, for some reason, doesn't seem to get the same adoration that Bryce does. Wow, thats staggering. Griffey was unreal. But like I said above,I was also speaking about marketability, and I'd imagine that Bryce is p the most recognizable player in the game right now, as was Griffey Jr at the time. Now, as far as statisticas, I could see Acuna fallling somewhere in between those two, maybe a bit closer to Bryce. But I wouldn't be surprised if he comes in closer to 40 rWar, either. I wonder where Barry Bonds and Trout rank on this list? I'd look but I don't know where to find the rWAR stat.

    Yea Soto is unreal too. Exciting times for Baseball. And Vladdy Jr. and Eloy Jimenez are two more kids who are knocking down the door. Maybe the Orioles will draft someone really good this year and we can have a little piece of the pie.

    Acuna, barring injury (of which he had a serious scare earlier this year,) is a budding Mega Star. Like Ken Griffey Jr, Bryce Harper level I truly believe.

    The heir apparent O's owner

    Indeed they are. The softball scene was painful to watch; a really great piece of scene writing. Ok, I digress, back to the Orioles! Maybe they can put a bid in for the Orioles. I have no doubt they would completely clean house

    I've watched the first episode, and Immediately drew this parallel haha. Good show so far with my admittedly SSS but the actor playing Kendall is stiff as a board and it bugs me.

    2018 Cleveland Indians

    Came here to post this. ESPN says it was a bacterial infection that began attacking his organs and that it was "severe." As in very life threatening. Just a reminder of how quickly one's life can change. He is said to be stable now, and there is no word on when/if he'll play again this year. Very scary stuff but the most recent news looks encouraging. http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/24368344/leonys-martin-cleveland-indians-battling-bacterial-infection So at the risk of sounding insensitive, does this increase their potential need for AJ now? Of course he'd have to waive his rights but I don't think he'll have a better shot to get a ring than with Cleveland this year.

    An Early Look at the 2019 Draft

    Yea I suspect that's it.

    An Early Look at the 2019 Draft

    Yea he is a joy to watch play baseball. I love his unorthodox, violent swing too. He moves like a spider, it's pretty amazing to watch. I just for some reason always thought he was an international guy.
  13. Gentry or Rickard probably could have. But I hear you.

    Chris Davis

    Would Oakland notice if we swapped our Chris for their Khris? Just for a few years.
