Can we see Stewart, Cisco, Mountcastle instead of Martin, Severino, and Rickard?

I honestly don’t think this is part of his thinking at all.

Agree to disagree then. You can't argue though with the fact that that the Houston model involved a complete tear down and the team becoming so bad that they were able to secure high draft picks. That was a part of the strategy.

You don’t think getting another top 3 pick is part of his plan or do you think that service time has nothing to do with that ?

I think getting a high pick is part of his plan but using service time to achieve that isn’t. 

I don’t think he is intentionally keeping guys in the minors who he thinks are ready for the majors and  are better than the players on the major league team, so that the team will be worse and he can secure the no. 1 pick.

Mountcastle will be the true first test case for service time and Elias. 

The others are not players you would play the service time game with. 

Neither is Mountcastle most likely.

Part of the strategy or a byproduct of cutting payroll to the bone and trading every current asset for future assets?

You guys do realize that the only thing they're playing for is another #1 pick this season right? The only time you're going to see these players called up is in September after the Orioles have the worst record in baseball all but locked up. #reality 

I don't know. Those Marlins are tough!

The key with words derived from German is that the I/E thing is always reversed from how it sounds to Americans. 

If it has the "ee" sound like "wee-ters" then the I comes first.  Wieters.

If it has an "I" sound the E comes first.  Leinenkugel Beer (first syllable pronounced like "line").

Once you learn that rule spelling words derived from German gets easier.

So "Wieters" is like "bier." Thanks.

They didn't teach us that in Latin class. And my last name is German, but no i's or e's in it.

Not necessarily.   Last year they had some kind of giveaway day scheduled but then traded the player before the giveaway happened.    I forget the player and the item but I remember it happened.  

Wasn't that the Gausman Game of Thrones bobblehead?

A bit of both I think.

The only think I'm envious of about the Marlins is that they have MUCH better pitching in their pipeline then we do. If our bats pan out over the next few years and we get better I think we're going to have to buy some pitching because the minor cupboard is pretty bare.

Orioles can always bring back their secret weapon Mike Wright now that he has been DFA-ed by the Mariners.

    • Yeah, it's 84. 50 (base) + 22 (22 outs) + 6 (completed 5th, 6th, and 7th innings) + 10 (strikeouts) - 2 (for 1 hit) - 2 (for 2 BB). 
    • Strikeouts count for a lot in game score.   Personally I’d prefer a complete game shutout with fewer K’s to a 7.1 inning shutout with 10 K’s, but I’m certainly not complaining about Wojo’s outing.   Edit: Just saw BarclaySouthway’s post indicating the game score was 84, not 94.     That seems more likely.  
    • Yeah, that's weird because Wojciechowski's game log has yesterday's outing as a game score of 84. Link That was a great performance, but 9th all time while only going 7 1/3 just doesn't sound right to me.
    • Absolutely.   I thought during the game I heard Gary Thorne say something about New York, though I may not have heard correctly.
    • You very clearly stated her value was her looks and not her intellectual contributions to the broadcast which probably says more about you than it does about her.  Best of luck to Sara. 
    • Hunter interviewed her on the radio pregame, and she said that she was not yet able to reveal what her next job would be but she would be soon. So this looks more like she is leaving for another opportunity then MASN getting rid of her.
    • Game 98, July 21 There were some excellent defensive plays in yesterday’s one hitter, four of which I’ll mention here. - With nobody out and a runner on 1st in the 6th inning, Chris Davis gloved a hard-hit ball over the bag, stepped on the edge facing home plate, took one more step towards home as he pivoted, and fired a strike to 2B that allowed Villar to apply the tag and complete a DP.  Davis has always been very good at feeds to 2B and this was a good example. - With Givens in the game in the 9th, Devers laced a rising liner to RF that Mancini went back on and almost misjudged it but he leaped and made a nice outstretched catch. - The next hitter hit a ball in the RCF gap but Wilkerson raced over and made a nice backhand catch while running pretty much full speed. - The final hitter of the game hit a ground ball in the 1B/2B hole, but Chris Davis made a diving stop and an accurate flip to Givens, who hustled over to cover 1B on the play.    The defense was in a RH pull shift, so Davis was about halfway between 1st and 2nd when he made the stop.    The stop, the accurate throw from his knees at that distance, and Given’s presence of mind to get to 1B on a ball hit that far towards 2B were all very impressive.
