    Is it just me, or do the Orioles have a rather thin record of promoting coaches from within? I feel like there's always 2 or 3 guys we say this about each time there's a vacancy, and no one ever gets promoted.

    Hyde: New O’s Manager

    And we immediately loved him for it. Still do. He's an Orioles great and deservedly so.
  3. Anyone who says seeing a Davis rebirth wouldn't be the single most fun Orioles storyline to witness in 2019 is an actual reanimated corpse.

    Luke’s 2018 Rule 5 Draft Preference List

    We should be prepared for the event that Elias goes with utility over upside, like Duquette mostly did. After all, that's what the Rule 5 is all about. So if Elias goes with Martin despite the bat flaws Luke pointed out, he's likely doing so because he can be used right now on the major league club to provide solid defense and good speed. What I'm saying is, we shouldn't make any connections between Elias' Rule 5 pick versus his upcoming Rule 4 picks. Not that you are, just throwing it out there.

    I remember seeing him in the playoffs and thinking... this guy? How? Astros magic, man.

    I wish we were closer to contention because I'd love to trade for Realmuto.

    Hyde: New O’s Manager

    "Choosing" is an odd choice of words. Could just say the manager-hiring process is ongoing.

    Hyde: New O’s Manager

    Yeah honestly who is going to say, "yup, Ken got me there. We hired Hyde, hopefully he signs the contract and everything's good. What's that? He didn't sign yet? Ah man. Uhhh.. well I sure those other guys still want to manage the team then." I mean...

    Hyde: New O’s Manager

    I think it's false that the team instructs Roch to do anything. I think he simply reports what is said by members of the organization, rather than seek out scoops and rumors from outside sources. He would rather let other folks do that, and he'll just report when things are officially announced. That said, you do still find some nuggets in there, as you say. Oftentimes, though, we'll hear interesting tidbits after the fact. So he knows some things and chooses to not report them, that much is clear. But I don't believe someone form the Orioles is out there instructing Roch to report on this or that. I think he'd laugh at that assumption.

    Hyde: New O’s Manager

    I hope he does. He's a good, smart baseball dude that deserves to be a part of the game somehow. I'm not sure what other types of FO jobs he would be a good fit for, though, other than GM. He'd be an excellent GM for some team in transition like we were.

    Will Hyde Bring Any Cubs Coaches/Free Agents With Him?

    I'm sure you're right. For all his qualities though, he sure does love to get that ol' windmill going at 3B...
