The Orioles could never lose right. Last year they lost right and they should this year too. #1 overall pick and more draft resources is the way to go.

I’m worried that we are all on the board at this time of night thinking about this team 😁

Guilty as charged. 

 

But in my defense, there was not much on social media to read and I was bored and checked in anyway.

Orioles have the worst run differential in baseball. If they keep it up things will sort themselves out. 

You can only lose one game at a time though.

Yeah it would be really nice to hit the sim button on this year but you know still like be able to live our lives.  I’m not trying to fast forward the summer months.

I know it. It's uncanny how players that were vital to the playoff teams are not even ML talent anymore.

Funny how Jones, Beckham, Schoop, Manny, Brach, Gausman, Pearce, Miller, Cruz, and Britton are all doing well. 

We chose to pay the old, one dimensional, players like O’day, Hardy, Trumbo, Davis.  Plus tack on huge reaches/bargain hunting like Ubaldo, Gallardo, Cashner, and Cobb. 

Not starting this debate for the 100000000th time but no reason we should have tied up so much money into 1B and DH, when we could’ve gotten by with Christian Walker/Mancini/Pearce/Valencia/Alvarez/Seth Smith. Some combo of them. Instead we’re paying damn near 40 million a year for not a single hit from Davis and Trumbo this year. 

Tracking with you here for sure. How different would the rebuild feel if we were paying Manny a skosh more than what Davis is making now? Maybe you have Schoop on pretty good terms too. And then one of Markakis/Jones locking down the COF spot. 

Maybe none of that makes sense in the rebuild we're in. Maybe the complete change in leadership doesn't happen if more right decisions were made. But still, in a vacuum, it's hard to not be frustrated at the player casualties. Paying all those guys at the right time wouldn't be far off from what we are paying Davis/Trumbo like you said.

The O’s built their entire model on homeruns and felt to be successful thats where they needed to pump their money. I dont blame them for the signings at all, I blame them for the idiocy of the contracts and mismanagement of the rest of the organization.
