    I don’t think I have the stamina for him to start either.

    Little Yaz was never protected in the Rule 5 Draft and never drafted by another team. He was not protected in the MiLB phase of the draft and not selected by another team, he was not coveted by any of the other 29 teams or their Minor League teams. He was not a commodity worth a whole lot to the Orioles or any of the other twenty-nine teams.

    They are 21-46 against them in the regular season over the last 10 years. .313.....a little better. Lost every season series over those 10 years. .479 against rest of majors. I think it is fascinating that no matter who is on the roster, the Twins just can’t beat the Yankees. Maybe these current players don’t care about a history that they weren’t responsible for, but the longtime Twins fans have to be sick about 18 seasons of awfulness against the same team. This narrative is really old.

    Any chance Buck would trade for Davis if he joins the Mets? Cobb could be a possibility if he can stay healthy.

    Time for my 2019 revision to the list. As a reminder, the list takes into account both performance and where the player was drafted. Only players who were signed by the O's after being drafted are included, but the list does not distinguish between how the player performed as an Oriole as compared to his performance for other teams. Nobody below 1.0 rWAR is ranked. Moving up: Trey Mancini, to no. 9, up from 14 last year. New to the list: John Means, coming in at no. 13; you could argue for higher, but I'd like to see him perform for more than one year. Also new: ex-O's Mike Yastzemski, Christian Walker and Oliver Drake, all of whom had excellent years to exceed the 1.0 career rWAR qualifying criterion. I also added Parker Bridwell, erroneously omitted from past updates to the list after his good 2017 season. Feel free to debate my rankings! 1. Manny Machado, 1:3 pick 2010, 36.9 rWAR 2. Jake Arrieta, 5:5 pick 2007, 25.5 rWAR 3. Nick Markakis, 1:7 pick 2003, 33.0 rWAR 4. Zach Britton, 3:9 pick 2006, 14.1 rWAR 5. Matt Wieters, 1:5 pick 2007, 18.4 rWAR 6. Josh Hader, 19:4 pick 2012, 6.6 rWAR. 7. Zach Davies, 26:4 pick 2010, 8.0 rWAR 8. Kevin Gausman, 1:4 pick 2012, 10.2 rWAR 9. Trey Mancini, 8:23 pick 2013, 5.9 rWAR 10. Dylan Bundy, 1:4 pick 2011, 6.8 rWAR 11. Jim Johnson, 5:7 pick 2001, 8.1 rWAR 12. Mychal Givens, 2:5 pick 2009, 6.4 rWAR 13. John Means, 11:16 pick 2014, 4.5 rWAR 14. David Hernandez, 16:13 pick, 2005, 4.6 rWAR 15. Caleb Joseph, 7:4 pick 2008, 4.5 rWAR 16. John Maine, 6:4 pick 2002, 4.0 rWAR 17. Mike Yastrzemski, 14:23 pick 2013, 2.8 rWAR 18. Brad Bergesen, 4:8 pick 2004, 3.2 rWAR 19. Chris Ray, 3:7 pick 2003, 3.2 rWAR 20. Mike Fontenot, 1:19 pick 2001, 4.5 rWAR 21. Christian Walker, 4:4 pick 2012, 2.4 rWAR 22. Nolan Reimold, 2:13 pick 2005, 2.2 rWAR 23. Donnie Hart, 27:23 pick 2013, 1.8 rWAR 24. Brian Matusz, 1:4 pick 2008, 2.3 rWAR 25. Oliver Drake, 43:4 pick 2008, 1.4 rWAR 26. Parker Bridwell, 9:3 pick 2010, 1.3 rWAR

    Assuming Elias can find a better option this offseason, he's the backup infielder or sent to AAA. But we won't be expected to compete in 2020, just like this year. When you look at it from that perspective, they could easily trot him out to SS in Baltimore for another full season.

    I think there's a decent shot that Martin is the opening day SS. In an extremely small sample size, he hit well in September and I feel like he made small incremental advancements during the season. It'll be interesting to see what he works on this offseason and how he handles ST next year. I think it's most likely that he's a backup infielder or starts at AAA though.

    Perhaps they should have let him take batting practice with Home Run Derby balls and surmised that one day those would be used in the Majors.

    I don't see Martin making it to Opening Day on the 26 man roster, unless something big happens. I think he starts off in Norfolk atleast. I think Villar ends up at short and an Alberto/Wilkerson platoon at 2nd. Catching....Not sure. Severino, unless he gets traded. Sisco, unless they move him or move on from him. Wynns, unless they get rid of him. If they protect Cumberland, do they give him a shot?

    I’m not going to join in the “about time” and “finally” choruses. I was a bit too young to remember Brady’s prime years with us, so I can’t quite say I can look back fondly on his playing career, but I’m certainly appreciative of his devotion to this team. Whether he overstepped whatever boundaries were laid out for him at times, well, who knows; what’s done is done and both sides are now moving on. I will say this much: even if he did encroach, I won’t accuse him of being shady or duplicitous in any way. I’d like to think that he felt he could be an asset on many levels, so he tried to be that – he clearly loves the organization that much. Hopefully it was indeed an amicable departure and he’ll remain on good terms with the franchise.

    I didn't watch the video, but did Billy mention that every single reasonable study ever done on lineup construction indicates that the difference between the best possible lineup and a totally nonsensical lineup nobody would ever use is like 20 runs a season? Literally, a team with Mike Trout batting 3rd and the pitcher 9th might score as much as 20 runs more a season than a lineup with the pitcher batting third and Mike Trout 9th. Who bats where in the lineup is far less important than proper refrigeration of the egg salad in the pre-game spread.

    Final numbers 10-34-8 in 46 series 5-17-4 at home; 5-17-4 away. 54 wins would be 1 out of 3 for the year. Consistent. Consistently bad.

    I could see Hurst and a first rounder. I might do another pick (3rd round) if he would agree to tone down the talk. Any more than that, no thanks.

    Hard to see a Baby Ruth bar and not think about the Caddyshack movie and the famous swimming pool scene.

    Ken Burns' Country Music Went to the Grand Ole Opry tonight for the kickoff of Ken Burns' new PBS series Country Music. Warmup act before the screening of Episode 1 (2 hours - don't watch it sitting in a church pew even if it is padded) was a 40-minute set by Old Crow Medicine Show. They were great. The show was typical Ken Burns. If you like his work, you will like this series as well. And only 16 hours total! Positively breakneck speed by his standards! Don't pass up an opportunity to see a show at Grand Ole Opry. It's a surprisingly intimate and comfortable venue with some of the best sound ever. Jimmie Rodgers along with the first generation of the Carter Family were the focus of the first episode...
