  1. That's the kind of move you make when you're in contention, not coming off 100+ losses in the last three full seasons. The Orioles should be in no hurry with DL Hall or any of these prospects. I know everybody's tired of losing but they signed up for this plan and, for now, they need to stick with it.
  2. This is a guy who just needed regular AB's. He had hit everywhere he had been, all throughout the minors and in the Mexican League so I was not surprised.
  3. Tampa has figured out that experience is overrated. If you have a pitcher with good stuff and there's no book on him, he has the advantage. They've been doing this ever since they brought up David Price as a closer in September, I think the same year he was drafted. Obviously a lot to learn from them but the Orioles need to stick with their plan for now - grow the bats, trade for the arms
  4. At least we know there was no intentional tanking going on this weekend. After losing that 7-0 lead Friday night I had my suspicions.
  5. Yeah, looks like it's over. Let's just hope it's not another Mark Teixiera, Chris Smith situation., Good God 107 losses and we still can't get the 1st pick.
  6. Mancini should be tendered. With what he's been through over the last year and a half, I think he is just dog-tired right now. Hope for a quick start next year and possibly deal him then. Severino is free to go. He doesn't hit anywhere near enough to be as mediocre as he is defensively.

    Trade for it with that position player surplus (hopefully). That's been the plan all along.
  8. It's one thing to lose but to lose at losing is a whole different level of suck. All they had to do was keep losing and they can't manage it. If they were down 12-0 with two outs in the bottom of the 9th, nobody on and needing one more loss for the 1st pick they'd somehow score 13 runs.
  9. I wouldn't sign him long term for exactly the reason the OP stated - Wieters. There's no such thing as a can't miss guy, no reason to extend a guy before he's even played a major league game, especially in this long, long term rebuild.
  10. Alright got through it with the split, no damage done. Losing at least 5 out of these last 6 should be easy. Arizona has Colorado so they could get a couple there and the first pick is sewn up.
  11. I think it's the only way to go for a small to mid market team. All you have to do is look at the endless list of failed pitching prospects over the last 20 years and then look at the hitters that have been developed in the system. Not that there's been enough hitters developed but they've been a lot more successful with that than the pitching. I think we will see more pitchers drafted and drafted higher once the lineup is more solidified.
  12. Man, these guys are going to be tough to lose to but we've got to find a way. At least the D'Backs won today, still tied.
