    Luke’s 2018 Rule 5 Draft Preference List

    Great job Luke. My identical twin boys are now 18. It does not get any harder after the age of 2, just different. Keep up the good work. It is much appreciated.

    Schoop, Service Time, and a Lesson on our Young Guys

    What about signing him as a 3rd baseman? He certainly has the arm and his range issue will be reduced. He hit 32 hrs in 2017. Seems like a good fit. Keep Villar 2nd and find a good/ great fielding SS.

    Roch: Decisions Still Pending

    You have to remember that Roch is not an investigative reporter. He is a commentator for the Oriole network. Jim Palmer who is also an employee but his commentary is so much more in depth and truly objectively critical about the organization and play on the field.

    Connolly: Chris Holt to be hired from Astros

    I wonder if this is an indication that Brian graham position may be in question. I thought Wasdin was a linchpin in the last two draft for pitchers.

    Could Elias hire another Assistant GM?

    Excellent comments. I was thinking the same thing were there will be multiple asst gms for other areas of the organization.

    My Final tidbit. I can not vouch for the veracity of all but this x emp had his ear to the ground in birdland. I am just passing this along. He was not a big fan of the former holy trinity of Buck, Brian, and Brady. I hope Elias can manage the B&B effect. ... several people turned down the Orioles GM job because of interference concerns of Brady Anderson. The new young guy fits a PR narrative they want to promote. How much they’re paying Elias says a lot. Probably the lowest of all Mlb GMs because a real baseball guy wouldn’t take the job knowing the machinery in Baltimore. Reality is until they remove the internal cancers ie.. Brian Graham / Brady Anderson nothing will change. My guess is that they’re positioning to sell the team when the elder Angelos passes....

    Random Drug Test

    I think that would be 3 years too late for Davis.
  9. Where did this tidbit come from? While the farm system as a whole is on it's way up- a lot of credit has been given to John Wasdin's input on the pitching prospects we've drafted the past two years-

    TT: Silence of Ownership is Deafening

    Unfortunately my info will be very muted going forward as my guy in no longer in the employ of the O’s as of Wednesday. He was very upset and frustrated by the incredible disfuction within the organization- too many cooks offering varied opinions often contrary to each other. One thing he did say a while back is our Tony has a real good incite to the inter working and disfunctions of the organization.

    TT: Silence of Ownership is Deafening

    Tidbits: 1. Os are / done getting rid of all Duquette people per Brian graham agenda. He is very close w L.A. 2. Very disfunctional organization but Duquette was trying to keep it together until he upset mgt w the blue jay temptation . From there on, they very much neutered all his work. 3. He never wanted the Davis deal and tried to get a long term deal w manny but was constantly being undermined by Brian and Buck. 4. Duquette wanted international signings and was rebuffed by mgt- contact offers 12- 15 they were accepted by the athletes but not signed off by ownership. 5. Only hope is for an ownership change as there is no confidence in the son taking control properly.

    TT: Silence of Ownership is Deafening

    The Dominican issue hit very close to home. If one were to use the initials say lo, you could make some assumptions about the change in policy about the small Latin American country.

    Top President / EVP Candidates?

    I believe with all of the recent “activities “ - advising 5 organizational people they are not being renewed, the tea leaves are indicating that there is someone in place at the pbo position making those calls. They are simply waiting for the WS to end prior to making it official.

    It still looks like Grenier’s back foot is moving back behind him wat too much ala Robert Andino. His back foot should be just rotating inwardly instead of backwards allowing for a much more balanced swing.

    When will the Orioles Announce hirings?

    Roch said there would be an announcement just before ws which would be tomorrow or immediately after the ws. We will see about tomorrow. I think they already have it locked down.
