  1. So here's the visit my family had with Weams and JustD a week ago. Hope you enjoy. It was a delight to see our old friends and to hear Weams comment on the random stack of vinyl that she pulled from his collection. JustD adds a lot to the conversation too! The video format was in keeping with last year's half hour music show we did for 19 weeks during the lockdown. But instead of our usual 7 minute segment as part of several usual segments, we extended "I Want My Daddy's Records" to about 40 minutes for this special one. We shot it more like a documentary with 3 cams than the way we usual

  2. My daughters, wife and I had a really sweet visit with Weams and Denise on Thursday of last week. We drove up from NC to see a couple of games in the Nationals series and made arrangements to see him our first afternoon up in PA. In the weekly video show during last year's lockdown, our daughters and I (family band) had on YouTube last year, we had a segment called "I Want My Daddy's Records" and we talked about a random armful of LPs on camera. Weams loved that segment and we agreed to do one with him while visiting with him. I'm about to put the finishing touches on it this evening and

  3. The amazing thing is that this is the longest scoreless stretch of his career. Back when he was legitmately a top 10 pitcher in MLB he never reeled off 18 straight scoreless.

  7. So, on June 4 there wasn't a single team in baseball that was willing to claim him. But, on July 30 we were able to pull in some cash? How is that dumb or bad?

  9. His xBA is .282. That’s not just based on normalizing BABIP, but based on quality of contact. His xwOBA is .351 compared to wOBA of .394. I do think that speed probably accounts for a bit of the difference, but certainly not all of it. Still, if you told me Mullins would have a .351 wOBA for the next four years, I’d sign for it in blood. Even taking any luck away, he’s been very good.

  11. A little sarcasm, but on Burch's high A team there are nine pitchers with 12+ K/9, and the team is 33-41. Used to be if you had Burch's K rate and K:BB ratio you were on the fast track to the majors, on the cover of Baseball America. Now I don't even know if he's a prospect.

  15. Very well done, Nash. That video should get numerous up votes; my regret is that I have but one to give. @weams has quite the eclectic collection. Mike and @justD must have several hundred vinyl albums in their front room. Blues Brothers, Cheap Trick, CCR, ELP, Heart, James Taylor... People are nostalgic for vinyl again. I had quite a few but sold most of them off in the early 80s to buy CDs instead. Interesting Neil Young and Skynyrd in the same stack. "Well I hope Neil Young will remember. A southern man don't need him around, anyhow." Yellow Submarine was one

  18. Berrios is the more established pitcher, sure, but he is a FA after next season. Means has three more years of control after this year. It isn't as far apart as you think.

  20. It's a high threshold for me to say this on this board where we analyze every minor thing that goes with the organization, but who cares. This guy had zero trade value (which is why we got cash considerations) and wasn't part of the future. Barely part of the now.

  23. Kind of odd, but never underestimate the ability of the Rays to max a guy’s potential, or the Orioles inability to do so.

  24. Pavolony played much of the season with a hairline fracture in his hand. He hit better with the injury, mostly against SEC competition. Some big game performances. He had a good offensive line going in 2020 before COVID and they played very good competition early. Connor was the 91st ranked HS player in the country, according to Perfect Game, out of Woodstock, Ga.. He was a 2nd team College pre-season All-American according to D1 Baseball. I watched some video on him. His pop times are consistently around 1.8. Quick hands and feet. He is about a 7.0 60 yard runner, which is not bad at al

  25. Locally, the Nats have been cleaning our clock in recent years. To the extent fans have wanted to choose between them, the Nats have been the better franchise for quite a while. Even in the window when the O’s were good, the Nats were as good or better. So, we’ve been losing ground for a decade. But is the tide beginning to turn? The Nats were 26-34 last year, 22-29 this year. Not as bad as the Orioles, but not good. They’ve got the 5th oldest set of hitters in the majors, and the oldest set of pitchers. Their top pitcher, Max Scherzer, is 36 and will be a free agent at

  26. I mean, you can’t make up stuff like what Matt Harvey is doing. I’d given this guy up for dead. Even when he had his great start coming out of the all star break, I figured it was just like the game Tillman had out of nowhere when he was done. But now he’s done it three times in a row. And that’s why baseball is insane. It’s vaguely predictable at times, but at the end of the day you always find out you didn’t quite know what you thought you knew.

  27. Last year's 60 game season and the 102 games we have now played this year constitute a 162 game "season". 2018: 47-115 in 162 games 2019: 54-108 in 162 games 2020-21: 61-101 in 162 games

  34. Cardinals trade John Gant to the Twins for Happ. One shitty pitcher for another. But it gets them off the list. Phillies get the 2 Ps from Texas. So the list is now down to: Balt, LAA, Colo, SF

  36. By my count, the following teams have made no trades involving MLB players this week or even this month (I do not count waiver claims, or trades for a guy who has been DFA'd): Orioles Angels Rockies Giants Phillies (tried for Tyler Anderson but it fell through) Cardinals I expect that list will be shorter in an hour and a half.

  37. I don't know, the only player it really makes sense to trade is Mancini and I would not call it disappointing if we keep him another year. I won't be upset if we stay with what we've got.

  39. I think folks here overestimate the value that a good (not great) right-handed hitting firstbaseman has for other teams. And while I don't think Mancini is a great hitter, he's still the second best hitter on this team. Neither Hays nor Mountcastle have stepped up as hoped. Only Mullins has been better. So Trey has more value here than anywhere else. I would expect them to re-look at a Mancini trade during the off-season when more teams will be looking at building out their rosters for 2022.

  40. Neither have a lot of range for sure. It was why Urias was being looked at more as a 2B who can play SS on occasion vs an everyday SS. Leyba is just overweight and was never a great defender in the first place.

  41. It will be interesting to see if Armstrong develops into an effective bullpen arm with the Rays. But, I really hope there are other trades made by Elias today and this isn't the highlight of the trade deadline for the Orioles.

  43. But for how much longer? He’s a FA after next year. He will be in his late 20s and has been oft injured. Do you want to bank on that guy for a long term deal? I think they made the right decision to trade him. Whether or not they got the best deal possible for him, who knows. Maybe if they dealt him separately they could have gotten more. I don’t know that but I do think trading him and not extending him was the way to go. (Could argue that you wait until the offseason to trade him but he has had so many injuries that I can see not taking the risk)

  44. I think Jones is a bit overrated here. This is the first year that he's really hit in the minors and looks like he's regressing some back to the mean. Defense is at 2B is highly suspect. I don't see the path. Seems like he won't hit enough to play OF or play d well enough to stick in the infield. It's too bad Vavra got hurt because he could be knocking at the door. Will be excited to see what Norby can do in a few weeks and hopefully he is a fast mover.
