    • I enjoyed that interview.   Lyles is a very real guy.   He doesn’t buy into unrealistic questions.  He seems like the kind of guy who if you met him around town would be very honest about the team and his role.  
    • I trust the Orioles mental process coaches are doing what they can to protect Mountcastle's Zen and not let him get too despondent.     The algorithms don't care the outcomes Contact Quality and Frequency X and Y produce, but it probably isn't realistic to hope the same for Ryan Mountcastle and his aspiration to make hundreds instead of tens of millions during his livelihood.    A fair deal to lock in some of his arbitration price points might be good medicine all the way around. Mancini can talk candidly about The Wall as a veteran with free agency almost here...Mountcastle has nothing to do but just keep barreling as often as he can.
    • I think we are entering a phase where there will be an increase in the sense of urgency.  I am fine with Mateo at SS and he is not without talent.  But he isn't a SS on a competitive team and so he will need to step up or we need to identify a replacement.  I mean this is a good thing, and I really don't disagree with what you are saying, but we can't really just wait indefinitely to grow a competitive 26 player team.  The clock has started.
    • How about we go further down the line and trade Mancini for Jackson Merrill- the Severna Park SS they drafted in the 1st round last year? https://www.milb.com/player/jackson-merrill-701538  
    • I assume you are talking about for the longer term — not trying to trade for a better option in-season.  At this point, I’d rather let Mateo have the exposure this year and see how he does.  Chances are will will want a better option for next year, but we may as well give him his shot this year now that we’re 43 games in.
