  1. 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

  7. Since last season was exactly 60 games, and a lot of people drew conclusions from it that they might not normally draw from results through 60 games in a 162-game season, I thought it would be interesting to see where we were after 60 games each of the last 4 years. 2018: 19-41 (.317), 218 runs scored, .675 OPS, 310 runs allowed, 4.85 ERA. League average: 4.53 runs/game, .734 OPS (full season). 2019: 19-41 (.317), 250 runs scored, .708 OPS, 341 runs allowed, 5.81 ERA. League average: 4.88 runs/game, .762 OPS (full season). 2020: 25-35 (.417), 274 runs scored, .750 OPS, 294 run

  9. 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

  14. 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

  15. I know there has been a long thread (deservingly so) for Weams, but since I haven't been on OH for almost two years, I hope you'll understand. I wanted people to see this and I hope I'm not breaking any rule. I met Michael and Denise about 10 years ago. I was struck with their incredible cheerfulness, and of course their love of the Orioles.I found out later that Denise and Michael took Sarasota vacations annually just to watch the Orioles in Florida and to also check out the minor league talent too.One time Denise got hit in the head by a Chris Tillman pitch and was taken to the hospital.

  22. 1. Quality of the players offered in return. 2. How close are they to major league ready? 3. Do we have other players in the system who can do that player’s job without losing too much? 4. If not, how hard would it be to acquire a suitable replacement in free agency? We see Tampa trade players who are pretty key all the time, and yet they remain contenders We can’t refuse to consider trades just because the player could be useful to us as contenders

  27. I'm picturing Sig Mejdal in a Breaking Bad meth-lab style Winnebago with bubbling beakers and chemicals working on developing the perfect substance. We don't have a desert around here so maybe he's parked it in some remote corner of Patapsco State Park, or maybe an abandoned lot by Sparrow's Point somewhere.

  30. Entering this season, the Os added a few vets (and kept some others) that you hoped you could trade for something of potential value. They added Galvis, Franco and Harvey in FA. They tendered Severino. They handed a job to Valdez. They added Plutko. They gave a split contract to Valaika. All of these players served a purpose and for most of them, that purpose was to be an asset to use in a trade. However, that has really back fired. This group has sucked. Galvis has easily been the best player and worthy of being signed. Somehow Valdez and Harvey still have a positi

  31. The most recent renovations actually lowered the right field wall. You used to have to be 5'9"+ to see over the wall, which was the home run boundary. Now the home run boundary is at the feet of where fans stand in the flag court.

  35. Bradish was drafted in the 4th round in 2018 (#121) and Ortiz 2019 in the 4th round (#118). Interesting to note that at one point, Ortiz, Gonzales, Bradish AND Tyler Irwin were all on the same team. The 2018 NM State team that made it to the regionals was a very fun team to watch!

  36. I watched Ortiz play at NM State for 2 seasons. He has crazy speed on the bases and some of the quickest hands at SS that I have ever seen. He can also hit. Ortiz at SS and Nick Gonzales (Pirates) at 2B were an amazing pair in the middle infield.

  39. 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.

  42. Players are going to keep pushing the limit and gaming the system when MLB refuses to enforce the rules or looks the other way. Especially when 8 and 9 figure contracts are involved and awarded to the best of the best players. I'm not surprised by this at all and anyone who remembers the steroid era shouldn't be either.

  43. You have a really unrealistic view of rule enforcement. It’s not arbitrary to change enforcement policies when on the field results dictate it. The cops don’t pull over every car that goes 56 mph on a 55 mph highway, but when enough people start going 80 mph, they start pulling over the worst offenders. Baseball execs are concerned with the overall appeal of their game. When the use of tacky substances gets to the point where the games are less fun to watch, they put their foot down. Makes sense to me.

  44. 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

  45. I think most of us expect these three will be promoted to AAA in the 2nd half. And they will be in the Majors in 2022. They will only be under team control for 6 years unless they are extended. With the team's history on long term contracts and Elias' leaning toward being transactional like Tampa, extensions may not be the approach the Orioles take. Under that approach the O's may trade these players after 4 and half to 5 years. The new CBA terms are unknown but It does not seem that team control of players will get longer. One of the changes that may be made is to stop the abi
