  1. The great thing about it, he looks like a powerful left handed hitter. This is rare.
  2. What about the fears of the players have of COVID 19? The O's have been one of the smartest teams in the MLB because they closed all their facilities to not take any chances. 40 MLB people tested positive. Best to be safe than risk playing MLB. I think MLB should not play this year 2020.
  3. Any news on the O's signing their first 4 picks? I am anxious about progress. When is the deadline for them to sign?
  4. Tim Corbin on MLB really loves this kid. He is built for Camden Yards and he will break windows at the warehouse.
  5. I know the players have the skills that makes the team to be successful but how much money is enough? The owners have all the risks and expenses with no guarantee to make money. But I still blame the players and the union. Scott Boras is a cancer to baseball.
  6. I was a Mets fan when I was young, I rooted for them when they came in 1962. 40-120 season.
  7. Does anyone remember the bad start Cal Ripkin had in his first year.
  8. I agree with punishment to Astros. But there are some hypocrisy here. 2 wrongs don't make a right. But what about PED's. The home run from the PED player cheater helped the team win the WS??? What about Arod PED's helped the Yankees 2009 WS. Barry Bonds, Sosa etc. If you want to strip the Astros, then all the teams that had steroids help their team win the WS should have their titles strip too. All teams in any sport who cheated should have their title stripped too!!!
  9. On the bright side, it gives us reason not to rush the young pitching prospects to not hurt their arms to injury.
  10. Didn't we have claim before Seattle?
  11. https://www-baltimorebaseball-com.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/www.baltimorebaseball.com/2019/12/20/kyle-stowers-hopes-build-challenging-first-pro-season/amp/?amp_js_v=a2&amp_gsa=1&usqp=mq331AQCKAE%3D#referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com&amp_tf=From %1%24s&ampshare=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.baltimorebaseball.com%2F2019%2F12%2F20%2Fkyle-stowers-hopes-build-challenging-first-pro-season%2F
  12. We have some pitching prospects almost ready, that could be the difference and hope for the future.
  13. It is so hard to stomach the O's rebuild. I know it needs to be done, but it is hard to take. The season hasn't even started yet and we know we are facing a more than 110 loss season. It is so hard watching other teams making moves while we trade away our 2 best players for what little hope we can have for an entertaining season.
  14. Hope all the other teams get stoned and maybe the O's win W.S. Aerosmith sung Dream On!!!!!
  15. The O's made the right move. Bundy was too inconsistent anyway. If one or two players from the deal pan out we come out ahead.
  16. What will happen if this Elias regime is a bust? Will it be a disaster here in B'more?
  17. I thought the Mesa brothers were signed by the Marlins? What am I missing here?

    100 wins!!

    At least we get the #2 pick if we are going to be bad let's beef up our farm system to build for a Houston like dynasty. Why be 70-92 and get mediocre draft picks. So in a way we had a successful year.
  19. I am not sad for him, If he wants pity then give back the money he got?
  20. Why don't the O"a use CD as a coach since they have to pay him anyway and it opens up a roster spot? I would hate to release him and he hits 50 homers somewhere else, while we pay him and he performs because he has no pressure for his new team to prove to them like he has to justify $160 mil for O's.
  21. I remember Tom Phoebus no hitter. He came up as a surprise prospect. That is what I remember him for. Another chip from my childhood goes away. I hate to hear of my childhood players passing.
  22. He won't give up on the mountain of money he got.
