    • I often forget that the O's have Wells and Hall capable of filling either a starting or bullpen role.  And just imagine if Tate really can return to his 2022 form. IMO it makes the O's one Closer away from a top bullpen. 
    • I guess my point is he has nothing to gain by saying this except not putting him on the roster and pissing everybody off. To me, at this point if he plays well in spring training he will make it. Now defining “well” is probably the next thing to figure out.
    • Baseball America already has a mock 2024 draft now that the draft positions have been finalized.     22. Orioles — Noah Franco, OF/LHP, IMG Academy, Bradenton, Fla.  Franco has a low-90s fastball and decent feel for a solid slider on the mound, but his powerful lefthanded swing likely has more scouts eyeing him as a hitter at the next level. Franco takes big hacks and looks to do damage with a swing that can get overly long, but he drives the ball to all fields with authority and is also a deft defender at first base, with a chance for a corner outfield position as well.   Most likely a 1B.  Doesn’t seem like an Elias 1st selection.
    • https://www.baseballamerica.com/stories/how-the-nationals-lost-the-no-1-pick-in-2024-mlb-draft/   So the Nationals’ number combinations were still able to be selected, but if they were, MLB would have a do-over. The Nationals’ combo of 3-9-11-13 came up the first time MLB selected, so there was a do-over. The Guardians won that second drawing to land the first pick. Then the Nationals won again, so there had to be a second do-over.  This happened last year as well. The Nationals won the No. 2 pick, but then also were selected when drawing for the fifth pick, which led to a do-over that gave the Twins a chance to win the fifth pick. The Nationals haven’t had a winning record since they won the World Series in 2019. But when it comes to having their name called in the draft lottery, they reign supreme.    
    • I wish you’d put your finger on it because that would both be interesting and refresh my memory.
