Roy, since we are probably going to stink in 2019 and 2010, this is the only post you'll need for a while. See you in three years!

Absolutely.

That is all.

Hoping the stench will be on the way out. Hopefully with a new manager and coaches the team will improve. Hopefully Buck is out.

Hard to predict baseball sometimes.. but I can say with certainty that we will stink in 2010.

Pretty sure I took some baths that year so I wouldn't stink.

I hope I'm there in 3 years. I hope WE are here in 3 years.

I am excited that there are signs that the Oriole organization is waking up to modernity. We got lucky in our multi-year overperformance, and I loved it. But we all saw the train wreck coming; the surprise was that the piper payment was delayed for so long.

The road forward includes investing in Latin America, putting more money into scouting and player development, paying attention to advanced metrics/prediction models. A seismic shift was needed, and we're getting it. We might also be seeing an ownership change if we are REALLY lucky. Cross your fingers and hope because it will be hard to ---- > Trust the Process.

If we could put the August offense with the April pitching, we would be a playoff team. :)

 

Seems to be a running theme the past few years.  Pitching is hot and offense is cold.  

Offense gets hot and pitching can’t strike out little league hitters.

    • Off topic, but just out of curiosity I googled Wei-Yin Chen's name, and discovered he was the highest-paid player of the 2020 MLB season at $22 million.  I don't know how that is possible, but then again not much made sense in 2020. As far as Santander, he seems like a JAG.  Maybe slightly above a JAG.  Certainly not a guy to build around, but a capable 5-7 hitter in a lineup of a somewhat contending team.  In other words, he isn't that special. I hope Yusniel Diaz gets a chance this year.  He was supposedly the cornerstone of the Machado trade, and I have yet to see him in any box score.  He isn't getting any younger, let the dude play.
    • Its a good get.  The back half isn't like LeMahieu with the please play him six more years thing, and leapfrogging them in 2/3/4/<never> years will be tougher. Vlad might need to try 3B again if they want to start Tellez and all three of last year's outfielders. He's 5 years almost to the day older than Correa, not that we have $150M lying around, but some chance in 2022 whoever Correa's team is may have a shot at the younger/cheaper/better thing.     Using B-Ref tonight Springer as wild guess for overall Correa comp has 28 WAR in 3600 PA to Correa's 26 WAR in 2600 PA, though Springer better and healthier lately. Maybe now Realmuto in his Bryce/Dombrowski group text is like - ha, your $100M offer, so puny.   He lacks Mets stalking horse though. Good job Jays buying more good players when you've grown enough good players.   I'm good with anybody beating the Yankees, or at least stressing Gerrit Cole's summer, one more year.
    • I watched him pitch..I’m just not completely overvaluing 14 innings.
    • I don't think you watched him pitch. He is not a strikeout pitcher. He threw 83% changeups. He was a beast for 14 innings against MLB hitters. I don't care about his age. As long as he is cheap he gets a shot. 
    • https://www.baseballamerica.com/stories/10-prospects-who-just-missed-the-2021-top-100-prospects-list/   There is nothing linear about a Top 100 Prospects ranking. The difference between ranking 90th and 91st on the Baseball America Top 100 Prospects list is often infinitesimal, as the gap between No. 1 and No. 20 on the list is always larger than the gap between No. 75 and No. 125.
    • I think most teams only have about 5 or so true core players...4+ WAR guys and/or dominant BP arms (WAR doesn’t properly rate relievers). Legit AS level guys.
