  1. If you look at Zac Lowther's stats so far this year you see pretty much a train wreck. He's been hammered in his major league time (15.19 ERA in 5.1 IP) and in his three starts in AAA (7.94 in 11.1 IP). Combined he's only pitched 16.2 innings this season which is less than any other healthy starting pitching prospect in the system. The Orioles keep yo-yoing him between AAA and the major league team where they've given him one start and pitched him in relief twice. How can they get a read on what they got with Lowther, who hadn't pitched above AA until this season, while th

  6. This whole argument seems to me like much ado about nothing. The only decision the O’s need to make about Mullins during the season is whether to trade him before the deadline. In making that decision, you have to place a high value on Mullins, considering the season he is having, his defensive value and the fact that he has four years of service time remaining. At this point, it seems to me they don’t trade him unless some team makes a pretty huge offer. If one comes along, then the O’s can decide what their long term assessment of Mullins is, based on all the data available at the

  8. Well, I don’t know everything about Michael, but I’ll tell you what I do know. He was a very early member of OH. He has been a regular at Hangout Nights at the ballpark from the very beginning of those events. He met his wife Denise at a Hangout Night. He would always go out of his way at those games to meet as many people as possible. At some point, Tony asked him to join the OH staff and he became the Managing Editor. He’s always been a very fair moderator. He loves the Orioles and comes from a family of Oriole lovers. When the O’s used to hold Fanfest, Michael would save me a

  13. I haven’t been on here as much over the last year and half or so but no idea how I’ve missed this… I am so sorry to see this. While I have never met Weams, I know he is a great guy just by all the things I’ve read about him and my interactions with him on this board over the years. I’ve been on here probably for like 13 years or so(when I was still in my teen years.) I’ve always respected and loved to see his opinions on all thing Orioles. I promise that you and your family will be in my prayers and thoughts.

  14. The 2011 MLB draft was, at the time, projected to be maybe the best ever. Top 5 picks. 1- Gerrit Cole 2- Danny Hultzen 3- Trevor Bauer 4- Dylan Bundy 5- Bubba Starling I'd call that two misses out of five. Saying there are a lack of can't miss guys at #5 is just pointless, it's that way every draft. The draft isn't like it used to be. Back in the day you could take a Josh Bell in the second round and pay him 5M to convince him not to go to college. You can't do that now. All you can do it convince kids to skip college that weren't picked at th

  18. The guy is throwing 95, velocity is not the problem. He can't locate his pitches, I don't know how coming out of the pen is going to help that. Literally no one they could call up could be worse than this guy right now, it's pointless to keep him around.

  20. Sceroler is 26 and have not played at AA yet. He last played at A+ ball for the Reds in 2019. The Reds did not invite him to their Alternate Camp last year and did not protect him in the Rule 5 draft. He has not performed well since being taken by the O's. 6.43 ERA in ST, 14.29 ERA in the regular season, 16.62 ERA at AAA. The question is will the Reds pay 50k to get him back?

  21. I don't see why you would put him in the pen instead of hitting him with a DFA. All he's going to do in the pen is take up a slot that can be used by a younger player and limit flexibility since he can't be sent down. Is any potential upside worth that? He's not going to be able to accumulate any trade value. Just call it a day.

  22. I do believe when it comes to the baseball scouting industry, there are those who like to be contrarians. First of all, it gets clicks. Going against the common thought in regards to the #2 prospect in baseball is something people will notice and talk about. Look no further than SG being alarmed about something that wasn’t 100% glowing about AR. And here we are talking about it. Now Jeff Mary Elizabeth Masterantonio is on my radar. I’d not heard of him before. Second, I’m convinced that there’s no one that holds these people’s feet to the fire. There’s virtually no risk involve

  23. I would say the name of the game isn’t necessarily confidence gained by the successes and wins. IMO, it’s the opposite, it’s being able to grind it out through the bad times. That is probably what is helping Mullins separate himself from the pack this year; he’s been able to get through some really hard times and figure out a way to flourish. It’s easy to be confident when you’re Tony Gwynn or Chipper Jones or Mike Trout or someone else with an impeccable resume who’s been able to stick since Day 1 (yes, I realize Trout struggled in a small sample size when he initially came up, but i

  27. Athletes that get to this level are all really good. We can say so and so sucks or whatever (yea it is in the context of their peers) but in all actuality, in a world of 6 billion people, they are on of the best 300-500 people in the world at what they do. That’s pretty rare. They all have natural ability that most would only dream of. What separates most is between the ears. The mental part of sports, be it confidence, intelligence or whatever is enormous.

  29. Don't make me cry, Roy! My son and I had the honor to meet up with Roy at Pickles pub and also his radio interview with Melewski at Dempsey's, before a hangout game in May 2015. The meeting was set up by Mike, who was already friends with Roy. Mike and I have texted, and while I won't share details, he also sent me the "made it another day" text to let me know he's still here. Youse guys haven't heard from me in 1 1/2 years, but this is a most special case. I'll say again. It's easy to say "thoughts and prayers," but actually do it. Mike would really appreciate it. Please

  30. A class act as always Roy. thank you for putting into words how may of us feel about Michael. thank you so much for reaching out to Palmer and having him call Micheal. I know that meant the world to him. Denise filled me in on the conversation and it made me so happy to hear Michael happy and talking Orioles with a HoFer like Jim Palmer. Please thank Jim from the bottom of my heart and thank you for making it happen!

  34. If they need an arm to go back and forth between Norfolk and Baltimore and just pitch mop up duty/not accumulate innings, why not use a guy like Eshelman? I know he's not on the 40 man, but clearing a spot shouldn't be problematic.

  44. Well that’s part of my point. I’m not certain he will be healthy then. I want him pitching for the big club before the wear and tear really sets in. Further, I think there is a better chance for a competitive window between 2023 and 2026 than 2026-2029 and that his coming up towards the end of this year will make him better in 2023. Maybe marginally so.

  47. With a bad team, that is certainly the reason. I'm just not sure why you and SG struggle to understand the economics portion of the game and the way it is set up. I'd love for the collective bargaining agreement to change so it enables teams to bring up these guys earlier. I still like the idea of making all players free agents before their 27-year old season (as of June 1st) regardless of use and years in the major leagues. I believe development is important, but too often we've seen teams keep major league caliber players in the minors because they were worried about service time issues
