Mark Ingram deal 'close'

Recommended Posts

I am warming up to Ingram.  He would be the best RB they have had since Ray Rice.  I'd rather have Bell due to age.  I guess if Ingram is close Bell is choosing the Jets or Raiders.

Is there a limit to how many RBs you can play on the field at one time?   I feel like we may try to push that limit.  Let's draft more on top of Ingram!

If DeCosta signs Ingram I will know he is in over his head. Edwards and Dixon are fine, and draft someone. Save your powder for bigger needs.

Sounds like Ingram getting 8 million .. at that price, just go to 12 for Bell. Or go a little cheaper with Tevin Coleman.

3 is the limit. You need a QB , 5 linemen and two other guys to cover the linemen.  They could play the wishbone.

The Ravens want an upgrade from what they have. They believed Bell would be and I guess believe Ingram will also. Tevin Coleman is a nice 3rd down guy that struggled when he was forced to be the starter due to injury.

Listened to some of Norris and Long on the commute in today and they reported from I think Schefter that the Ravens never even made an offer to Bell.

So I don't think we can say they ever were considering him.

I mean, this has been the Ravens MO for a long, long time.  Let the other teams outbid each other for the top tier guys, while we look for value.  So we probably shouldn't be too shocked.

Yes

Despite speculation that Baltimore was involved in the talks and bidding, the Ravens never made an offer for running back Le’Veon Bell, per source.

Great an old running back in decline.  I would rather they sign nobody. 

Super usual a statement without any warrants.  I'll give you old but until you show me facts, I wont buy the "in decline tag."  The fact is he has less carries than most RBs would be at his age.

Ingram has 1321 attempts in his career, his ypc has remained average for about 5 years. 

For comparison, doug martin and Lamar miller who were drafted the year after have more carries.

Yards per carry

2016: 5.1

2017: 4.9

2018: 4.7

He also average 14 yards receiving per game last year.

    • These have become so important for me. While we are not where we should be, we are definitely seeing some success in the lower levels and that is exciting.
    • Mountcastle hit his 22nd home run today, and more importantly (apparently), walked for the third time in his last 4 games. .312/.342/.521.
    • I was speaking in a general sense.  
    • He’s not on the 40.   He’ll need to be in it in December.  
    • For Immediate Release: August 18, 2019   PITCHING STAFF TOSSES EIGHT SCORELESS IN WIN KEYS SCORE FIVE UNANSWERED TO TAKE SERIES FINALE FREDERICK, MD – After a rocky first inning, the Frederick Keys (20-33, 49-73) pitching staff kept the Fayetteville Woodpeckers (31-25, 62-63) off the scoreboard, earning a 5-3 victory on Sunday afternoon at Nymeo Field. Cole Billingsley broke a 3-3 tie with a bases loaded double that brought home a pair of runs in the sixth inning. Scott Burke (2-2) and Zach Matson (S, 1) then locked down the final four innings as the Keys gave up just one hit after the first inning. Tied 3-3 in the sixth, Will Robertson hit a single to lead off the inning and Jean Carrillo hit a double off the left-field wall a batter later. Parker Mushinski then allowed a walk which drew controversy from the Fayetteville dugout, as Woodpecker’s hitting coach Jason Kanzler was ejected arguing balls and strikes. Billingsley then came to the plate and grounded a ball down the first base line, bringing a pair of runs home to give the Keys a 5-3 lead. Burke retired the first seven he faced out of the bullpen but lost control in the eighth inning. He walked three straight Woodpeckers as Matson was called upon to put out the fire. With the bases loaded and one-out, Matson forced a groundball to third that caught the lead runner at the plate and then struck out the final batter to end the inning. Burke did not allow a hit nor a run over 2.1 innings. Matson polished off the final 1.2 frames and gave up one hit. The first inning resembled yesterday’s seven run opening frame for Fayetteville, as Cameron Bishop struggled to command the ball. He allowed a base hit and walked two batters to load the bases for Miguelangel Sierra, who cleared the bases with a double to give the Woodpeckers a 3-0 lead. Bishop rebounded nicely after that. He walked three batter but did not allow a hit or a run over the next four innings while he finished with five strikeouts. The Keys offense went to work in the third inning. After Mushinski retired the first two batters of the inning, he put two men for Robert Neustrom, who cracked a double to the right-centerfield gap that scored both runners. An inning later, the Keys were able to tie the game 3-3. Robbie Thorburn’s double put runners at second and third and Mushinski then walked a batter to load the bases. Clare then hit a sharp groundball to third baseman David Hensley, who couldn’t handle it cleanly, allowing the tying run to cross. The Keys have an off-day on Monday before opening up a three-game homestand against Potomac on Tuesday, August 20. RHP Blaine Knigjht (1-9, 5.73) takes the mound for Frederick against LHP Nick Raquet (10-8, 4.13) for Potomac. First pitch is scheduled for 7:00pm with pregame coverage starting at 6:45pm on the Tune In app and frederickkeys.com. The Frederick Keys are the Advanced-A affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles, and play their home games at Nymeo Field at Harry Grove Stadium. Following the 2018 season, the Keys were named the winner of the Carolina League’s Complete Franchise Award. This goes to a team in the league which demonstrates franchise stability and significant contributions to its community and the league. In 2019, the team will host the Carolina League All-Star Classic presented by Visit Frederick.

    • I realize Im a "come lately" on this post, and I also realize a teeny weenie sample size is really nothing to get too excited about...but man, that kid has a good arm. I spoke to Palmer off the air and he told me EVEN if the gun was jacked up, he was easily throwing 98  with some movement. And he showed poise and smarts. Palmer's quote"really early, but I was impressed. That was an easy windup and he surprised me with that kind of velocity. Kid has a great arm."...Please...baseball Gods...Let SOMETHING BE GOOD going forward this year!
