  1. Past hour
  2. Exactly! Going into last spring with 1 reliable starter was a disaster waiting to happen. Filling 2 rotation spots with rookies/injury recovery guys is a tall order. The O's were trying to fill 4 spots that way. It was a fool's bet to think that Felix and Harvey could fill rotation spots. No, Harvey wasn't the worst pickup, but he had to have a good 2nd half to get his ERA near 6. The Dodgers have about 10 starters that are better than any O's starter other than Means. They really benefitted from that depth this year. The way that pitchers get hurt, a major league club should never go
  3. I think you forgot to add the 20% going to the worst team in baseball tax. 3/40 or 4/50 is probably what we’d need to offer.
  4. Grayson is a great prospect and if he was going 6+ innings on a semi regular or regular basis (and still putting up dominant numbers) this past year, I think he really would have a chance to be ahead of Adley. But I don’t think his case is nearly strong enough. Adley shouldn’t be ranked the #1 prospect in baseball imo but he is the #1 prospect on 29 teams, including the Os.
  5. Today
  6. I think the pitching was very consistent this year.
  7. I don't think it matters if they go unclaimed or not. The O's have to sign some veteran pitchers to give them some consistency next year.
  8. Yesterday
  9. We could clear off Ciuffo and another 5-7 pitchers that would go unclaimed.
  10. By the way, I know that once or twice a year, Toney and whoever has replaced Luke present us with the top 30 prospects, bit by bit. I was thinking it might be very interesting to go backwards. Instead of going from 1 to 30, why not go from 30 to 1? Everybody knows who the first floor guys are anyway, probably the first six, depending on where you want to put Heston(For me he has to get on a field, first.) But the back 12 or so guys, those are some really interesting possibilities, so it just might be fun to consider going in reverse order.
  11. MLBTR is reporting that Jon Gray is likely going to be seeking a 3 or 4 year deal at $9-10 million per year on the open market this offseason after rejecting a recent extension off from the Rockies. If that is true, I would be all over that. Since the start of 2019, he has pitched to a 4.50 ERA/4.25 FIP/111 ERA+ in 338 innings across 63 games (62 starts) with an 8.8 K9, 1.2 HR9, and 3.3 BB9, all while pitching in the thin air of Colorado half the time. He's obviously no ace but he's not terribly old (finished the 2021 season at age 29) and he has proven that he can hang in a high offense
  12. I don't think we'll be shopping from the top shelf of free agency this offseason either, but signing a quality veteran SP to a reasonable multiyear deal should still be on the table, imo. This year's crop of free agent starters is deeper than usual and being able to check off one rotation spot for the next 3 or 4 years, even if not one of the top of the rotation spots, would help the bullpen out and be one less thing to worry about as we begin to aspire towards playing meaningful games in a year or two. I was kidding about Davies, he looks just about ready to turn back into a pumpkin l
  13. I am as enthusiastic about Adley as anyone, and I agree that a position player has more daily impact than even the best pitcher, But the rarity of impact pitching, and our desperate need for anybody who can throw well, tipped the scales in his favor for me, and I see that three other people have also voted for Rodriguez, so I’m not the only one.
  14. I wait all year for this. I’m expecting this to be one of the best lists ever due to the quality of our prospects and the amazing amount of work Tony has put in this entire season (and I’m sure, in the past two months).
  15. Check our what Tony said here. It’s a close call. I’m going with Adley because he transitioned to AAA after this thread was created and didn’t miss a beat. But for me, it’s more like 1 and 1A than a clear cut 1 and 2.
  16. Other then hopefully seeing him play well because that would mean he's healthy, I don't think it will matter. Mateo will come into next season as either the everyday SS, 2B or super utility guy who plays just about everyday. I think the Orioles are going to give him every opportunity to show he can play everyday at the major league level.
  17. Maybe.. You never know! I've been known to use psychological operations in my options.
  18. I know who the #2 prospect is... Who is the Orioles 2021 #1 prospect? Grayson Rodriguez 2 Adley Rutschman 18
  19. As recently as June quite a few posters had Grayson #1. https://forum.orioleshangout.com/forums/index.php?/topic/42154-is-grayson-rodriguez-our-no-1-prospect-now/
  20. It's that time of year once again where we give you an in-depth view of the Orioles system. This year, we will be adding in a risk rating based on level played at and injury history for each prospect. Risk Assessment Likelihood AAA AA A+ A- FCL/DSL Never injured 1 2 10 16 25 Minor injury 2 9 15 20 25 Multiple injuries
  21. University of Conneticut has a great lefthanded 1st baseman/relief pitcher named Reggie Crawford. 6'4" 235 lbs. Was going to be a 1st round pick next July. Struck out 17 of the 33 batters he faced last year. Braves draft 20th and wanted him as a pitcher. Unfortunately he had Tommy John surgery last week.
  22. Should be one thing we can all agree on.
  23. I agree , A position Player has more impact day to day than a Pitcher.
  24. When close to equal, the everyday player has the ability to have more impact on a teams season. Heck Adley, as a catcher, can make Grayson more successful. Not sure the opposite is possible.
  25. It has to be Adley. Grayson had a great year, but Adley is Adley
  26. Who is the Orioles 2021 #1 prospect?
