    Could be a good result for the Orioles. It looks like they used the Bortz formula but applied it to the actual revenues from 2012-16, as opposed to the conservative projected revenues that were used in the 2012 arbitration. If so, setting the precedent that the Bortz formula is to be used will be very beneficial for the Orioles in the subsequent reset periods.

    I know, I’d be done as a baseball fan. I can’t see MLB letting Camden Yards stay empty.

    @Going Underground @Obandomentioned this in another thread and it absolutely deserves its own thread, IMO. Folks, Brady Anderson is no longer listed on the Orioles website as an executive or... anything else. https://www.mlb.com/orioles/team/front-office Nor is he found in the coaching section.

    No, I like the idea of having seperate conversations rather than one long thread that you may miss new information or news.

    Obando was the one who caught the Brady no longer listed thing. Scouts being listed and an Executive being listed is two different things. I spoke to someone i know with the sun and perhaps they will followup up on any changes taking place.

    I was at the Delmarva game in Asheville last night. Took my 8 year old granddaughter and 5 year old grandson to their first baseball game. The boy bailed after 2.5 innings, but the girl wants to go to the game with me tonight. She also wants to learn how to hit Grayson did not look sharp at all I think the stadium gun is slow. Didn't see anything above the low 90's last night and only a few times when I saw Bundy's debut way back when.

    I know you were joking, but I thought I’d look into this anyway. It took Davis 4,694 plate appearances to reach 1,500 strikeouts. It took Straburg 5,169 plate appearances by opposing batters to reach 1,500 K’s. So no, not as fast as Davis!

    Do you get the feeling this team is in deep doo-doo? I'd really hate to see them leave Baltimore.

    Maxx Williams signed with the Cardinals. We just need his contract to be worth enough and him and Urban to stay healthy and we are looking at 3rd, 4th, and 5th round comp picks.

    o 64% of the outs that Bundy recorded (14 out of 22) came via the Strikeout and the Groundout. The unexpected retro performance by Bundy was mildly reminiscent of Brad Bergesen's Complete Game-Shutout against the Rays in May of 2011, 2 years after his excellent 2009 season was cut short by a line drive that broke his leg. https://www.baseball-reference.com/boxes/TBA/TBA201105140.shtml 22 OUTS: ) 9 Groundouts (Including 1 Double Play), 4 Strikeouts, 4 Flyouts, 2 Popouts, 2 Lineouts DYLAN MATTHEW BUNDY ))))))) (FINAL NUMBERS) IP:lll7.33 H:llll 3 )(2 Doubles, 1 Single) R:lllll 0 BB:ll1 ) * SO:ll4 Pitches: ll)96 )(62)Strikes, )34)Balls) 2019 ERA: ))5.30 )) 35.67 IP (21 ER) 2019 WHIP: ))1.318 )) 35.67 IP (47 H/BB) 2019 OPPONENTS BATTING AVG: )).244 ) (33 for 135) * )) Bundy also had 1 Hit Batsman PITCHES BY INNING ************************* 91 lll(61 llStrikes, lll3 lllBalls) 14 ll(81 llStrikes, lll6 lllBalls) 10 lll(71 llStrikes, lll3 lllBalls) 16 lll(11 llStrikes, lll5 lllBalls) 18 llll(10 llStrikes, lll8 lllBalls) 12 llll(71 llStrikes, lll5 lllBalls) 91 llll(71 llStrikes, lll2 lllBalls) 81 llll(61 llStrikes, lll2 llBallsl) ) ** ** )) Bundy recorded 1 out before departing in the 8th inning. o

    Even if the Angelos family eventually sells the team, I have a strong feeling it would be to an ownership group with strong ties to Baltimore. I agree that their affection for Baltimore will most likely outweigh their willingness to sell to out of town investors that could potentially move the team, but then again, money talks, so who knows? Let’s just hope for the best, because I don’t think I and the majority of true Oriole fans could handle the Orioles moving out of Baltimore. I was luckily too young to remember the Colts moving away, but I never want to have to experience something like that. I would be totally devastated.

    And isn’t the game more important then interviewing an Astronaut ? I think it’s absolutely unforgivable to have the game in the background while some reporter is interviewing some guy. We are here to see baseball, such as it is, and not hear inane interviews.

    I hear what you are saying, but do you think I don't know this? Do you feel at any point I've given you or anyone else any other feeling then i know what's going on? Here's the deal, all I'm saying is we KNOW WHAT RICKARD is, so why not give Williams a chance. He's most likely not better, but maybe he's will be. Why not? No one thinks this is going to improve this team significantly, nor should they, that's not the point. This is about evaluating as many guys as possible and when you have a guy that's not part of the future, and is not performing well now, you try another piece. This whole rearranging the deck chairs on the titanic thing is really, really ridiculous because you KNOW I'm not saying that. Look, every move is going to be like this this year. You may want to come back in two to three years when the moves might matter.

    Davis - 0 K's (whilst ten other O's whiffed) and average remains above the "Davis Line". Question: Can a golden sombrero be an indicator of injury and we get to see a true OF up here for a bit? Oops - he says , "No!" emphatically but he did that last year with the knee ..... "Trey Mancini struck out in all four at-bats last night and is 0-for-8 with seven strikeouts since being hit on his right index finger in the first inning of Saturday’s game in Minnesota. It was the first four-strikeout game of Mancini’s career. Three of them came against Tyler Glasnow. “He was absolutely disgusting,” Mancini said. “You have to tip your cap. It’s frustrating. Dude threw a good game. He did a great job executing his pitches. It’s tough. His breaking ball, especially, looks like his fastball to the hands, so you try not to give up on it, but he spotted it well and he was really good out there.” What about the finger? “Totally fine,” he said. “It has nothing to do with the finger. Just bad timing for the first golden sombrero. Is that what it’s called? Yeah, just not good timing, but I’m physically fine.” http://www.masnsports.com/school-of-roch/2019/05/this-that-and-the-other-178.html

    In Baltimore? I seriously doubt it. I’m not going to get greedy here. I just want Hays to have a healthy year from here on out and hit like he’s capable of when he’s healthy. I’m pretty sure he was slated for Norfolk before his injury, but now it won’t surprise me if they start him at Bowie. We’ll see. I think if he sees Baltimore this year, it won’t be until sometime after the all star break.

    They’ve been brilliant. My favorite series of trades is: 1. Trade Delmon Young and parts for Matt Garza and parts. Garza gives Tampa 592 innings at a 3.86 ERA over the next 3 years. 2. Trade Garza and parts for Chris Archer and parts. 3. Sign Archer to a very favorable extension. Get 1,069 innings of a 3.69 ERA from Archer over 6.5 years. 4. Trade Archer for Tyler Glasnow and Austin Meadows. Both are looking like studs. Seems like they always get good value from their trades.

    @OFFNY posted an article on the ONGOING LINEUP THREAD, 2019 with some data on his changes. Here is a quote and then data follow: "There are several things changes in the works, but one stands out: He’s throwing in the zone more. Out of 140 pitchers in 2018, Glasnow ranked 127th in strike rate. This year, Glasnow has jumped to 15th out of 132. Glasnow has moved from ninth percentile to the 88th percentile in strike rate. That is… insane. He’s gone from someone who couldn’t throw strikes to one of the best strike-throwers in the league." https://www.pitcherlist.com/going-deep-tyler-glasnow-is-metamorphosing-before-our-very-eyes/

    I posted this famous experiment in a similar context on this board a few months ago... https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stanford_marshmallow_experiment I know the team sucks, and it would be more interesting to see a couple guys like Mountcastle playing every night. But even if they come up and mash, you are talking about a very minimal difference in a team that will lose ~100 games regardless. Patience, my friend....it’s all about trying to sync up our young talent in Baltimore as much as possible so we can keep them together as long as possible for the next time we’re good. Don’t take that marshmallow yet.

    rWAR weights ERA heavily and doesn’t look at FIP, whereas fWAR weights the FIP factors very heavily. Gausman’s fWAR was 0.4 going into yesterday, compared to -0.1 rWAR. As to why his ERA is out of line, it’s probably sequencing. He’s allowed 10 runs on his 5 homers, for example.

    Orioles are a business. They will draw more then tonight for the giveaway,so more profit with higher ticket prices. That is why they charge more for Yankee and Red Sox games.To make more on the Yankee and Red Sox fans.That being said ,the Orioles ticket prices are not that bad.

    I was waiting for you to state this.. I have struggled watching this kid and seeing the same subpar results. 900 AB's 3 to 1 K's over Walks and 17 SB's over that period of time. Too many holes in his swing. Joey is a AAAA player period. I could see three or four organizational prospects that are better suited than he is with this current team. I thought Jackson, the rule five player that came north with the OpeningDay team was much better.. Oh well.

    His exit velocity is up two MPH this year compared to last is up from .228 to .265, so he's certainly looking batter in that regard. He's always been around major league average for Exit Velocities.

    He was one heck of a football player, and he certainly lived a full life. I grew up in upstate NY. Though I was a Baltimore fan, I was too far away from Baltimore to ever have a chance to see Marchetti play for the Colts. But I remember listening to Oriole games on the radio during the 1960's. By that time, Gino had started a chain of hamburger stands. They used to advertise on the Oriole broadcasts. I can remember the jingle, "Everybody goes to Gino's - 'cause Gino's is the place to go!" I moved to Philadelphia in the 1970's. The best way to get to Oriole games was to take Amtrak to Baltimore's Union Station, from which I could catch the # 3 bus up to 33rd St. and Memorial Stadium. I remember there was a Gino's three blocks north of the train station, at North Avenue and St. Paul St. Many's the time I stopped there for a burger on my way back to catch the train after an Oriole game. I live in the Harrisburg area now and there's no direct train service between Harrisburg and Baltimore, so I no longer have reason to visit that part of the city. Anybody know what might be on the southeast corner of North and St. Paul, where the Gino's used to be?

    He's 8-for-23... what else do you need? He sooooooooo hot that his average went up 70 points last night. For Jonathan Villar to do that he'd have to go 10-for-6 tonight. That's unpossible! It's good that he turned it all around yesterday, because on Sunday it went down 55 points, and I have to think he was on the verge of being released.

    They couldn't put up with paying O'Day for one more year? That would have been a small sacrifice in order to get our hands on one of Atlanta's young arms. The Gausman trade was short sighted and a complete waste of a resource.

    We traded Gausman to Atlanta (a team overflowing with young pitching) and couldn't get one of those guys.

    I went C+/C. To me that means they did a respectable job, but didn’t wow me. Of course, it’s going to be several years before we really know what this crop of young players yields. If a few of these guys develop well, the return potentially could turn out to be pretty good. But there’s not a lot of obvious high probability cornerstones here.
