  1. Past hour
  2. The Os don’t need a 40 man spot right now.
  3. Agree with all of this. I think Tony has Gunner here. Agree on Hall as well. I had him above Rodriguez for a long time, but just due to the fact that Rodriguez has been healthy I bumped him above. A lot of risk with Hall for sure, but the upside there is perennial CY contender if he can harness everything.
  4. I really have no idea where Kjerstad should be ranked. I’m guessing that the next 2 are Hall and Westburg. At that point, you have Stowers, Norby and Kjerstad, along with guys like Pinto, Baumann and Bradish. (Not to mention, a guy like Basillo) I would guess Kjerstad gets into the top 10.
  5. I’m going to stick with the idea that Hall was ranked lower than 5th last year and after being hurt, he didn’t play enough to jump up the list. I think Hall will be 6th. Im going Gunner here. Quite frankly, a healthy Hall has a case to be #2 but we need to see it first.
  6. I don’t quite understand the concern over Mayo’s size, and why some folks believe that will keep him from sticking at 3rd base. He’s listed at 6’5” / 215lbs. I believe that’s an inch taller and about ten pounds heavier than Cal Ripken Jr. was when he was a rookie at 3rd in 1982. Cal’s size never seemed an impediment to him defensively while he was at 3rd, and it certainly didn’t appear to hurt him when he moved to the more demanding position at SS. Right now Austin Riley is playing pretty good 3rd base for the Braves, and he’s listed at 6’3” / 240lbs. If somebody his size can stick t

  8. I think we can pretty safely rule out Baumann and Kjerstad here Honestly, I could see the case for Hall, Henderson or Westburg. Tony has had Henderson ahead of Westburg pretty much all year, so I'm going to eliminate Westburg. Game then becomes which hurts the guy more in Tony's eyes? Hall being injured for most of the year or Westburg's poor defense. If I could have only one of these guys in the system, I'd pick Hall because the upside is tantalizing and we really need starting pitching. I'm going to guess Tony feels the same, but I still have a strong hunch it's Henderson. Going wi
  9. Good write up. Looking forward to (hopefully) seeing him pitch in the big leagues in 2022. Back in the day the Orioles always broke their young starters in as long relief specialists, and I’m wondering if that might be the best role for G-Rod when he’s eventually promoted to the majors. Give him 50-60 pitches in a blowout once or twice a week. They would be low pressure innings where he could find his footing without having to worry about wins and losses. If I remember correctly that’s how Flanagan, McGregor, Boddicker, Ben McDonald, and maybe even Wayne Garland saw their first big league acti
  10. AFL GAME SUMMARY (10/27)
  11. Who is the Orioles 2021 #5 prospect?
  12. https://www.orioleshangout.com/2021/10/27/colton-cowser/
  13. Roch seems on board: “If the Orioles can implement their prospect plan at third base, Coby Mayo will be handling the hot corner and hitting long home runs for many years. “They can figure out how to occupy the middle infield with the batch of shortstops who crash their top 30 prospects lists, including Gunnar Henderson and Jordan Westburg among the first 10. Henderson could be the shortstop and Westburg the second baseman. They could reverse roles. “One of them could move over to third, but good luck trying to budge Mayo. “You can delay the fourth-rounder, but you can’t hol
  14. I wonder what the consensus on Baker will be if the Astros win.
  15. The Astros will not roll over.
  16. Hadn't even considered the possibility. I was going for the cheap humor.
  17. I follow Prospects Live and am a Patreon member for them, and while their list has a fantasy tilt to it, they’ve got Mayo at 32 and Henderson at 34. They’ve also got Cowser at 49 ahead of Hall at 61. All of those rankings are overall, obviously. A couple of their guys have been really bullish on Mayo since his season started as well, so it isn’t necessarily a huge overeaction.
  18. He was considered the no. 2 guy on the market, behind Pedro Marinez and ahead of Kevin Millwood and Jaret Wright. https://www.google.com/amp/s/vault.si.com/.amp/vault/2004/11/22/baseball-freeagent-watch
  19. So you think the sons dump all over their father's legacy?
  20. It has to be Cowser here. Tony downplayed Gunnar enough in the Mayo thread for me to think he isn't the choice here. I know Tony is high on Stowers, but I doubt he's this high. Tony also had Hall lower than the consensus last year and after another injury shortened year and new talent in the system I can't imagine Hall is higher than last year
  21. MLB Locks out players. Owners field teams of replacement players one month in, reaching into AA and AAA. O's win the World Series.
  22. Jimmy Key and Kevin Brown signed here in the 90's. Camden Yards was known as a hitters park by that time.
  23. That they're named after the "Guardians of Traffic," makes it even dumber, at least in my humble opinion
  24. Carl Pavano, top end pitcher? Sheesh, that must have been a rough offseason.
  25. Yesterday
  26. Going by Tony’s criterion, I’d certainly take my chances on Kjerstad vs. most players in our top 30 due to upside. Not at this tier though.
  27. I think that Diaz is protected in the Rule 5 draft but is traded this off season for a prospect that in not of the 40 man roster. O's are going to need that 40 man spot and Diaz is now at least the 8th outfielder in the the system that will be at AAA or above.
