  1. The Orioles will be interested in free agents this winter but only after the markets sets itself and we only have the leftovers to dig through? I for one am shocked and don't think I've ever seen such a strategy employed in the history of this franchise! This changes everything!

  5. Modern metrics, applied decades after the fact, have determined that Orioles pitchers from that era benefitted from pitching in a spacious ballpark and from having a spectacular defense behind them, and thus don’t give our pitchers the credit one might otherwise think is due. On an intellectual level I get that, but as a fan I feel that Palmer, McNally and Cuellar were huge contributors to the most dominant teams in Orioles history. To me 25 WAR for McNally just feels way low, even if the metrics are soundly reasoned.

  6. I don't understand why anyone would complain about this approach. We're not going after top-tier free agents for a while (if ever again), and we'll need players to fill out the roster. I don't see any player in our minor league system that has put up the numbers to be considered a shoe-in for the Major League roster.

  7. Spending 30 million to turn a 55 win team into a 60 win team isn't going to do much for Elias' star.

  8. They didn't offer (tender) him a contract for the 2019 season. This makes him a free agent. Basically they declined to use their last year of team control.

  9. I think I’ll be getting my FA market jollies by watching what becomes of Machado, Jones, Brach, Schoop, Beckham and Joseph, more than seeing who the Orioles acquire. The Harper bidding should be entertaining as well.

  19. It's a promotional world, run by the '47 Franchise. They absolutely want to see the Orioles continue to win 47 games a year. Why they even have it on the hat I'm wearing right now. I'n what world did a company know how many wins my team would have and be able to put em on the hat I bought before the season even started????? I'm telling ya...the '47 Franchise is what world Susac is starting over Sisco, Wynns or anyone else in Baltimore. And for the record....yeah, it's a Boston based company. 👽

  20. Not going to lie, skipping Fanfest because he was basically holding out over a long term deal only be traded and DFA'd by the team that acquired him the following off season is quite a fall. Saying that, If Schoop could be gotten for a 1yr $3mil, I'd sign him for 2B.

  21. I agree with this. There's really no need for a veteran catcher. At some point you have to see what you have in Sisco and Wynns. No point in bringing in a veteran to take away at bats from those two guys.

  23. Fixed that! 😇 But wondering if he got slower as he leaned or as he aged or a combination or neither or nor??? Personally, I hate the (in no particular order) wrinkles, age spots, hanging flesh, turkey waddle neck, extra hair in weird places that you can hardly see, and oh yeah the eyesight. Thank god for MJ or I'd be worried about losing hair also.

  25. That would depend on the Phillies' thoughts on Hernandez and Franco...and Machado's willingness to play third. Machado would be an upgrade on Franco and Segura's played 2B and could slide over in place of Hernandez.

  28. Haha. Yeah, it's amazing how broad the description can be for developers. I would bet that if someone knows all these programming languages, their HTML and CSS doesn't look pretty. I'm sure they can write it, but presentation and accessibility is another story. This would be my dream job, but I'm on the Front-End and not quite up to speed on all of those languages.

  29. I noticed Davis was leaner as the season progressed, but if so I think it was probably an attempt to lose bulk on purpose. Pretending to be the Hulk has obviously not worked the past few years.

  30. The Brewers GM straight up said that it was a bad move on his part. I like Schoop, but I'd pass. Low OBP, he's the type of guy we're trying to get away from.

  34. Teams were not interested in paying Cobb what he got for 4 years. By July it will only be 2 1/2 years. That could make a big difference in his trade value if he has a good first half.

  36. I have 2 thoughts on what's going on with Brady. First, it's clear Brady Anderson is a talented individual. You don't stick around for as long as he did with an evolving responsibility set if you're not talented. I'll never agree with anybody here that calls him incompetent. Listening to the man speak when he would be on 105.7/1090, it was very clear that not only was Brady a student of the game, but one that started evolving with it. I recall at least a few occasions where he was talking the talk re: sabermetrics. There are players (both former and current) that buy into it, and I think

  38. It is speculation. Our own biases determine that Brady must go to prove Elias is in control. But it is almost bizarre to think that Elias agreed to take this job without crossing the Brady and Davis questions in order to flesh out just how much control he would have. Elias and the Angelosons have stated that he will have full control. If he exercises that to include Brady then it becomes his responsibility to utilize him and he does so knowing that to some, he would be seen as keeping Brady because he has too. By the same token, firing him to prove his power, would be somewhat insecure.

  39. Yup,Brady is like the son-in law that the ownership tells to keep on when they get a new guy in charge.He is family.He came here for the challenge and trying to put an organization together from top to bottom. Guy loves a challenge.

  40. Yeah....no. If we're all aboard the Elias train and Elias sees value in Brady, we need to give him the benefit of the doubt. If Elias is reading OH and is like "Yup, these dorks on a message board want Brady gone, I'm letting him go Friday," then...Elias is a dunce. And we know Elias is not a dunce. And if Elias IS reading this....hey man, hit me up. I'll start off at the lowest rungs of the organization and work my way up. Seriously, just gimme a shot.

  41. Well, maybe we're wrong and Brady is actually a competent guy and Elias sees value in him? It's possible. And then if he keeps Brady on, do we give Elias the benefit of the doubt or is that strike one against him? Waiting for Frobby to tell us how bored he is of this

  42. As with most scouting directors, you really can't make an assessment until about 5 or 6 years after their last draft.

  43. The lack of a top 50 prospect hurts. So it depends on how much emphasis you put on elite prospects. I will say the O’s system is as deep with major league pieces as almost any team (the Rays and Padres are the exceptions). Right now it just looks like mostly average regulars, back of a rotation arms, and relief pieces. You just hope a few find their ceilings and add impact.
