  1. There are two ways to look at this, as I see it. First way - we don't think he's very good so we didn't protect him. If this is the case, then I don't mind losing a guy who the O's brass doesn't think is very good. Second way - we exposed him to rule V as the best way to protect him. He'd have been about the 37th guy on our 40-man roster. Add a relief pitcher, Bedard, 1b and 3b and he'd likely have been made available by waivers. If so, he could have been claimed and not kept on the major league roster by another team. In other words, he'd have definitely been gone. At least this way t

  2. I know, I've asked the same thing many times, but I've grown tired of saying the same things ad nauseum, like "he purposefully says things different to be unique (he's said that's the reason himself)", "he's not biased for NY/Boston teams, he's equally excited for any big play by EVERY team, you just notice it more because you hate the Yankees/Red Sox," "who cares what he thinks a pitch was if you can see it and know it was something else," etc. He's the best TV guy we've had since Proctor. Him being around has actually made Jim Hunter BETTER, has anyone but me noticed that? Hunter seems

  5. From the article above: In my opinion, this is completely preposterous. It wasn't until I read the article that I even realized that all of Tiger's "women on the side" were white. I honestly don't even think of Tiger as being black. I think of him as the greatest golfer in the world who up until last week had the squeakiest clean image an athlete could ever hope for. Does Whitlock really think that the black and white issue is what people are so up in arms over? Really?? Why does race have to play a part in everything?

  6. ...and with what they'd likely have to give up to get him, it'd be Bedard II, Electric Suckaloo. No way they can deplete their organization further for one guy, unless they can be sure they'll at least manage a wild card out of it. Otherwise, it's not even close to worth it.

  11. I've laid out the argument before, and I'll probably be accused of having a man crush, but whatever. PetCo Park kills Kouzmanoff. He has a career .801 OPS away from San Diego. He has worked hard to turn himself into an above average defender (+7.5 last year, positive trend). He will be only 28 next year, making only ~2 MM, and will be under control for three more seasons. Even with his offense suppressed by Petco, he has managed to be worth around 12 MM per year (~2.7 WAR) in each of his three full seasons in the majors. He is a very solid stop gap on the cheap, and if one of Bell or Snyd

  15. You would be surprised. I don't think I talked with a scout who sees him as a starter and most think he's a fringe major league prospect, despite the numbers. I wanted to like his stuff, I really did, but in the three times I saw him, I just didn't see anything that screamed major league starter to me. Maybe he'll prove everyone wrong, but the chances are he's guy a lot of people will be saying to themselves, "Why was I all fired up over him?"

  16. Yeah, but if you don't think a guy is ready for any role in 2010, and he doesn't have a high enough ceiling to project into anything more than a reliever/5th starter, you don't stick them on the 40-man when you know you will need to move guys off. If they put him on the 40-man and then have to take him off, they then have to waive him where teams could claim him for nothing in return. If you look at this way, it's actually more protection to keep him off the 40-man and force a team to keep him in their 25-man roster all year. I doubt the Orioles actually think more of Hughes, Tatum, Sarfate

  17. Not a big deal, probably. Still a mistake, though, by a guy who doesn't make many.

  18. There's really no uproar, just a few loud minority types that are just looking for something to bash. It's not like we just lost Arrieta or Erbe for nothing.

  19. San Fran is a good place for a flyball pitcher. The National league is easier to pitch in. Good luck Steve. You said you were excited to be on a major league roster.
