  1. If Elias is bad then the whole new O's future scheme is all for nothing. I am trying to have faith in the Elias / Staff for the future rise of the O's. If he is a failure the the O's are set back many years. Will they be called the Baltimore Cubs?
  2. I think the O's will be respectful next year, around a .500 team next year. Their prospects will be ready. I do hope they can keep Mancini and Means to be leaders on a young team.
  3. The O's future depends on how their minor league pitching prospects develope. I know I am speaking the obvious. I am hoping to hear all your opinions on this. I worry that they may struggle like Akin.
  4. This is why MLB should allow teams to have performance clauses in contracts and if he don't perform to contract expectation they be allowed to cut him and not pay him like other sports.
  5. https://www.mlb.com/news/mlb-rumors-trades-and-signings Bauer projects to be the best starting pitcher on the free-agent market, and he could hardly have put up a better showcase year, finishing the regular season with a 1.73 ERA over 11 starts and following up with a dominant 12-strikeout start against the Braves in the NL Wild Card Series. Sources who spoke to SNY's John Harper believe that Bauer could aim for a contract in the neighborhood of Stephen Strasburg's seven-year, $245 million deal with the Nationals a year ago. The outspoken Bauer figures to dominate the free-agent
  6. https://www.mlb.com/news/2021-mlb-draft-order-set The O's are getting the #5 pick in the 2021 MLB draft. What do you all think?
  7. Due to COVID 19 I am asking will the O 's draft / all other MLB teams draft order be the same as the regular draft? Also it seems the O's got cheated when they had the number 2 pick and only got 6 picks when there is usually 40 picks. Too many bad teams worse than the O's this year for them to get a good pick. What do you all think?
  8. The great thing about it, he looks like a powerful left handed hitter. This is rare.
  9. 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.
  10. Any news on the O's signing their first 4 picks? I am anxious about progress. When is the deadline for them to sign?
  11. Tim Corbin on MLB really loves this kid. He is built for Camden Yards and he will break windows at the warehouse.
  12. 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.
  13. I was a Mets fan when I was young, I rooted for them when they came in 1962. 40-120 season.
  14. Does anyone remember the bad start Cal Ripkin had in his first year.
  15. 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!!!
  16. On the bright side, it gives us reason not to rush the young pitching prospects to not hurt their arms to injury.
  17. Didn't we have claim before Seattle?

  19. We have some pitching prospects almost ready, that could be the difference and hope for the future.
  20. 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.
  21. Hope all the other teams get stoned and maybe the O's win W.S. Aerosmith sung Dream On!!!!!
  22. 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.
