  1. No Mason McCoy or did I miss it?
  2. As a high school coach I try to drill into my kids heads that they should hit the ball where it is pitched. Outside pitch go the opposite way, inside pitch turn on it, middle go middle. Real power is rare at my high school level so an all fields approach works best. I ask them, which is better, a double to right or a double to left. Most say one to left. I tell them, who cares, it is a double. React to the pitch and drive it. Players at the pro level obviously may have a different approach. I think we all agree a hitter should use the approach that maximizes their potential.
  3. C of C Sorry, I misinterpreted your comment. My bad. Appreciate your insight that you provide on the picks
  4. C of C. You sound down on the Iowa OF. Any reason why?

    I have watched the stats on this kid for three years and have been dumbfounded by the lack of attention he has gotten both online and seemingly by the O's brass. What seems to be the issue with him? He has played multiple positions this year and has hit well. Flaherty cannot hit his IQ so I would hope the O's would look at a reasonable utility alternative. Any insight is appreciated.
  6. My guess is these guys have a shot at re-signing: Beato Bundy Stoffel Rosa Borbon Everyone else just had pedestrian stats and could probably be replaced easily.
  7. Ivan Hernandez is listed as signing with the Angels as well.
  8. Not sure if anyone else caught this but in the 9th when it became obvious the Giants were not really going to give Trumbo a pitch to hit Palmer said, and I am paraphrasing here, " yeah, but they still have to throw a pitch to Schoop. An 0-1 count later, boom. Not the first time it seemed like Palmer could see into the future. I just enjoy listening to his analysis during a game. He and Earl may have had their issues but Palmer obviously paid attention during games.
  9. Thought I had read somewhere that we had signed Rios and Gruener as well. Any confirmation?
  10. Based on the circus that occurred during the offseason regarding DD and the Blue Jays, I would suggest DD did enough all on his own to undermine the effectiveness of the GM position
  11. Another name to throw into the mix is Brandon Snyder. Could be a one year fill in while Mancini develops. I am not sure I would count on him to outperform but so far in his return to the O's organization he has hit well at Bowie and he does have MLB experience. Downside is his age vs Walker and Mancini.
  12. Thanks Weams! Appreciate the insight. If there is a second player involved I wonder who. 20th Round pick Adam Walton is a RS Soph at Illinois. He may want the extra cash to sign.
  13. This just gets frustrating every year. A high draft pick holds out until the last day or does not sign. They miss out on development and instructions that could benefit them down the road. In Hughes' case, I assume the O's got assurances that if drafted early he would sign. You do not pick a kid that high without some confidence he signs. I wonder who the kid's agent is. Is he getting bad advice? Did he change his mind and is firm on going to collage? Was someone not honest? Just frustrating.
  14. Doc, is Michael Burgess still with us and if so have you seen or heard anything on him? Thanks as always
  15. Been a high school coach for 15 years. If I had a pitcher who threw as many ground balls as Zach, I would do exactly what Buck did. Made sense to me when he did it, still does even if it had backfired. With Zach on the mound Buck was basically playing with house money.
