    • I don't think it's the only way for a mid-market team.  They can lock up key players early to affordable contracts.  A mid-market team can afford a couple sizeable contracts.
    • I'm kind of using them (among other things) as a barometer of the progression of the rebuild. In the early phases of the rebuild, the O's were trying to reclaim scrap heap players and hoping for early market-outperform resources they could trade at the deadline (in addition to trading what was left of the previous team's actual talent). But they are slowly migrating away from journeymen pitchers and position players toward pieces they might have future plans for. This tells me we've rounded the bottom and will now start looking to build the major league team instead of just the farm. It will still be a slow process. Money, winning pct, where we are in the plan will determine if (and at what tier) free agents can be added. I'm hoping they resist that urge and see what they have for a year. You'll know the plan is accelerating when Rutschman and the next crop of pitchers arrive. I think the bolus of pitching talent throttling through the minors is what will make a contender by 2022.. and Hays, Santander, Stewart, Mountcastle, Mancini and and if we're lucky Iglesias make a pretty good starting point. Things are looking up... and I think the intent is to create sustainable progress by doing it on the cheap... play 'em as long as you can and then trading the top tier resources with time enough left under team control that they bring a healthy return... play north of 500 all the time.. and constantly re-stuffing the pipeline.   It's the only way to sustain a mid market team  
    • Then why did you say "it’s pretty obvious that Mountcastle is not going to succeed anywhere except possibly first base."? That is directly contradictory to what you are saying now.
    • I think I was pretty clear about how I feel and why. He may be fine in LF, and his defense has been average, according to the SSS stats. At baseball savant. But he hasn’t looked good, in throwing, running, or reacting. He MAY be fine in LF, but I don’t think so, and I expect he’ll end up at 1B or DH. And that’s ok, lots of good athletes end up at 1B. No shame in that.
