Maybe too soon to ask about Mike Wright

I know with Wright to wait until the real games count by now. Would be nice for a pitching prospect to figure it out for once or not get hurt.

Is that too much to ask as an Orioles fan? 🙋‍♂️

Yeah! Except for Bedard for one year and then Arrietta after he was traded, ours never seem to click and really take that next step. Be nice if the new regime could have some success(ES).

I have faith Elias and Co. will remedy the long pitching prospect drought.

Why can't these reporters read a schedule?

We’ll only list four starters here since the Orioles don’t technically need a fifth until the third week of the season. - Joe Trezza

If there’s no room in the rotation, especially with early off-days eliminating the need for a fifth starter until April 10, the Orioles can return him to their bullpen to provide coverage for multiple innings. - Roch

The truth this the O's play 5 games in a row between March 30 and April 3rd.   So the fifth starter is need the first week of the season.

These guys are driving me nut?  Just NUTS!  What else do they have to do but report the information correctly.

 

Trezza is not very good so far. I saw he posted a 25 man roster update shortly after the thread started online here. Real out of touch.

Just look at this stupid  article written but Joe Trezza.

1) First he reports the O's do not need a 5th starter until the 3rd week of the season which could not be  more wrong.

2) Then he contradict himself by saying they only need 4 starters and then lists 5 starters at the bottom of the article .  Come on, Joe.  At least be consistent inside the same article.

3) Then he show incredibly bad judgement by saying the Ortiz will make the bullpen.   Why?   Does he watch or listen to the games?    Can he read a box score?  Ortiz has given up 8 runs in 5 innings this  spring after giving up 4 runs in 2.1 innings in his September callup.  He is about three days  from being sent the minors.

How am I supposed to have any faith is Trezza's reporting when I can't trust the facts he states, the consistency in his  writing or the baseball judgement that he apparently does not have.

AAAAgh.

Unless I’m misinterpreting it, the list at the bottom is from MLB.com, not Trezza.   Trezza’s list is above and doesn’t include Ortiz.

I thought Trezza  is Orioles.com for MLB.  Isn't that his job.

Sorry to rain on wildcard's parade, but they don't need a 5th starter until the 3rd time through (April 11).

Those 5ish straight days are bookend by off days. So, to keep the top 4 guys on somewhat normal rest you can skip SP5 twice.

March 28th SP1, 29th Off day, 30th SP2, 31st SP3,  April 1st SP4, 2nd SP1, 3rd SP2, 4th SP3, 5th Off day, 6th SP4, 7th SP1, 8th SP2, 9th SP3, 10th SP4, 11th SP5.

Or am I somehow wrong like the 3 reporters.

Anytime you play 5 straight days you need a 5th starter. They play March 30-April 3.

Your April 3 starter is only on 3 days rest.

It was Trezza’a list from the first time he projected the roster before spring training started.  

https://www.mlb.com/orioles/news/o-s-opening-day-roster-prediction-c303767988

Thanks.    I noticed that article called it “our” first attempt.    So it’s not clear if it was exclusively Trezza’s list.    In any event I think Trezza is off the hook for that particular criticism.

Not the hook, your hook.

Yeah he could have worded it a little different. 

That said I don’t know how anyone can keep Fry off the roster.

He was wrong what he said about when they needed a 5th starter but the bottom was his projection BEFORE camp opened. 

He isn’t predicting Ortiz making the roster now.

So he’s still on your hook for saying on Feb. 10 he thought Ortiz was a frontrunner to make the roster?    That’s ridiculous.

He put it in the same article.  That is his decision of contradict himself.

    • Looks like we are about even on slot amounts if Henderson's 2.3M amount is accurate.  Potential savings on both Rutschman and Watson deals.  I expect a minimum of 500K between those two deals.  Might be playing hardball with Watson.
    • This is not a surprise. One-dimensional guys don’t usually have trade value.
    • With Gunnar and AR signed, I'm content. Anything else is icing on the cake, IMO.  I do like both cake and icing. 
    • Your assumption is that the old man listened.  I disagree that he did or that AJ had any impact at all.  Peter Angelos did what Peter Angelos wanted to do.  Yes, Adam expressed very publically that he wanted Davis, Markakis, O’Day signed, David Price pursued, etc etc.   Buck said it in a more veiled and sophisticated way for PR purposes as he knew his role.  Brady never really said squat publically because he was a behind the scenes guy who had no official spokesman role.  Dan was Dan...Mr. Oblique, clearly not his call, but not somebody, after his Toronto dalliance, who was in any position to influence or advocate a different view with the old man.  Peter Angelos knew that Adam Jones was his employee, and was just a player, and knew Buck and DD and Brady were his employees too.   Period.   The deal was done by Peter Angelos and nobody else. 
    • I don't disagree with the conclusion, but I think it's overstated, and that if Mancini could maintain his current level of production, he should attract some serious intreese among contending teams (or teams that view themselves as contenders) looking to add offensive punch. If you throw Trey in with qualifying first baseman in both leagues, this season Trey would be tied for fifth in OPS, tied for seventh through 11th in HRs and 17th in RBIs. (In the latter two categories, there are two NYYs who are ahead of or tied with Trey.) He has hit better on the road than at Camden Yards. I would certainly expect his RBIs, and maybe his other stats, to improve if he played for a decent offensive team.  I think that package might appeal to some teams, though it probably would take beyond the end of July to establish the kind of consistency to attain that interest.
    • Things are falling into place nicely. If Rutschman and Henderson both sign up, that only leaves us with Watson (3), Dashbach (11), Hammer (13) and Roth (29) unsigned among our top 33 picks.  
    • Looks like the over slot money to Henderson is almost exactly what we saved on under slots so far.  Well orchestrated by Elias.  Looks like any late round over slots come down to Rutschman's deal.
