    TT: Mullins: Starter of Future 4th Outfielder?

    If he is a 4th outfielder, he should be a very good one who can play defense, run real fast, and hit a couple homers. That's like, the ideal 4th outfielder. So that's great!

    Question: Is that Ryan Mountcastle at first base?

    I doubt Elias and crew are really projecting things like Trumbo being gone and a Mancini trade and all that. They are just putting the kid where he will be most valuable and let the chips fall where they may. Just like taking best player in a draft. Worry about the roster ramifications later. He can't play 3B and he'll probably be Mancini in LF. This is a good move.

    Interesting take on the infield by Jon Meoli

    Drew Jackson at 2B with that Schoop arm.

    Who replaces Joe Angel

    I certainly listened to more radio games than I did watch televised games last year. This is mostly because I have to set up a VPN and all manner of hijinks in order to watch an Orioles game because MASN is a trash fire that won't allow in-market streaming. I am certainly not going to pay Comcast or Verizon for a channel package just to watch an Orioles game. I am going to find a way to stream that game online for free. I imagine there's a few thousand O's fans who do the same. Radio, though, I can pay $20 and listen to it all spring and summer on my phone, and I'm happy to do that.

    Interesting FAs

    It has some Orioles vibes to it, so.. no.

    If it's your team's pitchers that are getting the K's, it's pretty fun.

    Orioles Sign Alicides Escobar to MiL Deal

    I might be alone here, but I feel like this signing is almost entirely just to have some kind of veteran shortstop voice in the middle-infield crop of players (other than Villar) in Spring Training. He's apparently a very good clubhouse guy and maybe that's just what this is. Get a guy in camp who's been in the game a million years and sort of get the young guys to take note and up their game for the competition in camp. Just my opinion. I don't think Escobar is going to crack the team and if he does, it will be as a bench/clubhouse guy.

    32 spring games on radio/TV/audio stream

    It really, really sucks.

    32 spring games on radio/TV/audio stream

    Hm, well I stand corrected. Looks like the Sox don't either, but it's a vast majority, and every game is at least on radio, which I'm glad the O's are doing this year. I would watch every single spring training game (or archive of it later that night) like my life depended on it. Because I am just that ready for baseball by this point each year. I'm not this way for the regular season, but I will voraciously consume Orioles ST baseball even if it's just the scrubbiest of scrub travel lineups.

    Absolutely. Yankees and Red Sox among others.

    Rich Dubroff: Joe Angel not returning.

    I believe he's a AAA Nats guy? If it's this guy: https://espnmediazone.com/us/bios/kevin-brown/

    Rich Dubroff: Joe Angel not returning.

    Sure. I think the big takeaway here is that Joe wants to exit on good terms, and he went all in on praising the Orioles when saying goodbye. If folks want to create drama, they can feel free I suppose, but Joe wants a classy exit and that's how I'm going to view it because that's what he wants. It seems to me that there's enough of his own hesitance about continuing here to basically throw out any controversy. The guy is ok with hanging it up. Anyway, it's going to be an interesting piecemeal kind of season with Melewski for 16 games and some ex-Orioles joining the broadcast it seems. That's at least more interesting than Hunter and Bordick all season.

    Rich Dubroff: Joe Angel not returning.

    “I feel great about it. After 42 years of doing that, I think that’s enough. I think I’ve had my time. I think it’s a good idea to let a young guy have a chance to do what I’ve done for 42 years. The Orioles have been fantastic. This is something that has been in the works for several months. We finally came to the point where both the Orioles and I agreed this was a good time to say goodbye. I’m looking forward to it. I don’t know what it feels like yet, but I can’t wait to find out. I’m going to miss all of it. But I think it’s time. “When the game starts, you try to talk to one person. If you do that, you talk to a lot of people at the same time. All the great comments on Twitter and the Internet and the phone calls that I’ve heard, it’s been flattering. It’s a reminder how people feel about you and it’s humbling. I’m going to miss the everyday communication and the banter, but I think it’s time and I think it’s good for everyone concerned.” http://www.masnsports.com/steve-melewski/2019/02/after-19-years-in-the-booth-joe-angel-had-a-classy-goodbye-for-os-fans.html What a cool quote.
