    30+ homer pace. Yep, let's DFA this guy. 🙄

    Appreciate like the 8 people that bought tickets. Honestly though, the lack of people purchasing and attending these night is pretty disappointing. We picked great nights, mostly with giveaways and the Orioles gave us a great deal yet there were what, two people who post here besides me here tonight? I'm actually embarrassed at this point to even try and get these deals in the future. If no one is going come, I'm not going to waste the Orioles time. If you live in the Baltimore area, this note is for you. We have 100s of people on here daily and you never want to come out during these nights? It's just disappointing. $20 tickets, meet other Hangouters, box seats. I guess I just don't get it! We used to have a pretty good turn out, even when the team was bad, but now, SteveA and O's is Legend are about the only regulars (Always good to see them both). At the end of the day, if no one wants to come out to these nights I won't bother the Orioles in the future.

    As for Trumbo, I will be VERY disappointed if he suits up again for the Orioles. I hope he recovers from his injury, but we can just release him after that. I don't see where he fits here anymore.

    I updated the second post in this thread. Should be a complete list of active international signings. Does not include players signed by other clubs first.

    Jon Miller told a story about being on a west coast trip with Chuck Thompson. Chuck said he only ever gets to see stadiums and hotels, so Jon took him to see the redwoods in Muir Woods on an off Day. They get there, Chuck looks up and says "Holy Guacamole!"

    So did we. Probably should have had him higher though. I was more bullish on him but wasn't sold until I saw the numbers on the changeup this year. I really wish i had access to the minor league trackman data. that's the holy grail for me when it comes to truly evaluating prospects.

    Fun one! 🦄Dwight Smith Jr.: SALAMI! First of his career with his Dad cheering in the stands. Love it. Renato Nunez: Good lord is he hot right now. His 14th(!) home run plus an RBI single. Trey Mancini: Nearly identical line to Nunez as he put up a 2run bomb and added a single. Trey! Pedro Severino: A solid 2-4 night with a double as he continues to be a surprisingly good offensive player. 🦄Richard Bleier: Save! 1.2 IP of solid pitching. He's coming around, hopefully, right when we need him. Mychal Givens: A good scoreless inning. Gotta start somewhere. Paul Fry: Solid as usual man. Scoreless inning and a third. Andrew Cashner: After throwing 46 pitches in the first inning, he somehow lasted long enough to earn the win. That's impressive in its own weird way. DJ Stewart: Nice catch in RF after he initially overran the ball, and a nice AB to earn a walk.

    There were nothing wrong with his relay throws on those plays. That catch yesterday was awkward but at least he had the speed to get to the ball and then readjust back. I'm not sure Mancini or DSJ would have gotten there for example. Not without having to lay out. His jumps look good and he's got above average sprint speed. Solid average for a corner OF. The standards for defense are too high on this board. I've often seen the attitude of, unless you are plus out there you are a DH. I don't think some of you understand what average defense looks like. I wouldn't be surprised if DJ puts up some positive DWAR #'s in the corners. Especially in LF where I think his arm plays best.

    I've seen enough. Another AAAA type. No different than Yefrey Ramirez. Has a good arm, spotty command, underwhelming secondary offerings. That velocity though!

    No stadium gun tonight. Hays swung at a pitch over his head in a 1-0 count and then rolled over on an outside breaking ball that he had to reach for on the next pitch. Channeling his inner Dariel Alvarez. He had one walk in his first 35 at bats in Frederick. That kind of plate discipline does not play at the major league level.

    Knight is definitely finding the Carolina League to be more of a challenge than the Sally. Today, 6 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 4 BB, 4 K’s. Most of the damage was done in the first inning, when he allowed 3 runs on 2 walks and 2 hits. On the positive side, despite the rough start Knight made it through 6 innings in a tidy 85 pitches.

    I want him promoted when he's ready to be promoted. I don't want him spending four years at AAA because "the major league team isn't ready".

    I'm guessing it is a combination of the size, age, and position. Sixteen and 6'4" in center are eye catching numbers.

    I haven't seen a single person on this board advocate trading Mancini just to get younger. If we can get a nice package back then a trade makes sense. But we shouldn't be trading him from a position of unnecessary desperation which is what happened with the Gausman deal last year. If the package coming back is similar to what we got for Gausman, then I am against trading Mancini. I think there will be some good offers if he's still at .850 + OPS in July.

    I'm not saying you should die on a hill. And I'm not saying Mancini is THE GUY to build around. But you think Mancini is Trumbo at 27, we'll just have to agree to disagree and move on. If you look at what Trumbo did in his age 27 season vs what Mancini is doing this year, you'll see that it's not a valid comp.

    lol, it's like we want to trade the one guy that we bitch and whine about never being able to have. Either you keep a guy who's young, good, cheap and cost controlled because they are that way....or you trade them because they're young, cheap, cost controlled. At some point you gotta make a decision to keep em. And if anyone says "OMFG MOUNTCASTLE!!!! WHAT ABOUT MOUNTCASTLE AT FIRST!??!?!?!?!" Please, save it. Just save it. This board has long suffered from backup QB syndrome....the guys we have are never good enough and there's always someone waiting in the wings that COULD BE better.

    That's my concern. A year of development time is huge as a teenager. As a pro, a 20-year-old in AA probably has 30-50% more projected career value (on average) than a 21-year-old with the same performance at the same level.

    The idea that we might trade away Mancini before dropping Davis or Trumbo I find troubling.

    It could be that Elias and company have been talking numbers with some players and doesn't want to lose a bargaining chip right now. "Hey Adley, we love you, but two others will sign for $500,000 under slot to help better the team. Should we pencil you in $750,000 under slot?"

    I agree. I hope we are correct. Then again, I don't see what trying to hide what you're going to do with 1:1 does. Maybe if you're afraid to disclose something industry specific, something about how you evaluate talent...but if there's a consensus #1 and you say you're going to take him...I dunno. But Elias is smarter than us. (Except CoC).

    I'm fine with Rutschman. But part of me wants Witt, just so I can keep remembering his dad's first few years in the majors when he was the love child of Nook LaLoosh and Steve Dalkowski. In Sr.'s first 300 MLB innings he walked 280 and hit 29 batters.

    Nunez has like an .780 OPS since joining us last year. He’s got 2 more years of being pre arb. He’s not going anywhere. I’d be surprised if Trumbo makes it through the next 18 days and is even capable of playing. I’m not rooting against him, but is injury sounded career threatening at his age.

    I am not, repeat not, a military expert or veteran. But I believe that throwing a hand grenade through a pane glass window from 100 feet would rate as a very strong arm. 😉

    I was at a game five years ago, Memorial Day. Random guy sitting next to me notices that recently-recalled Caleb Joseph is 2-for-29. He goes on for what seems like an hour about how he can see a GM putting up with, like, 1-for-7 or maybe 1-for-9. Everybody has to adjust. But Duquette should be looking for a new job if you let a slump get to 2-for-20, much less 2-for-29. I now realize that I've met wildcard.

    Stewart isn't going to get posted when the contract is over, he'll be a free agent. Of course they could theoretically post him before that happens.

    He has two options left. And of course the O's can send him to the minors to start the season without even using an option. Right now I see Givens, Bleier, Fry, Castro in the pen. Araujo for 17 days after which I like Kline. I would like to see the O's carry two guys that can give them 4 innings in relief per outing. Yacabonis is one. Gilmartin who is on a minor league contract is the next best guy for that 4 inning slot. He did that very well at the end of the season. I am just saying that the pen may be tough to crack out of ST and Lucas will be super easy to send down because he is on a minor league contract.
