  1. This is the first I've heard that the Orioles were involved in deciding which minor league teams should be eliminated. I would've thought MLB would be in charge of that decision, not individual teams.
  2. The Yankees do the same thing the Orioles are doing -- all their weeknight games before Memorial Day start at 6:35.
  3. Um, have you ever tried that? If you go out on the street and intentionally smack someone on the head with a helmet with intent to injure, you're probably going to jail, bud. Even if the person isn't seriously hurt. You're making even less sense than usual in this thread, and that's saying something.
  4. Yeah! If you try to injure someone and fail, you're totally off the hook. It's not like a person could go to jail for attempted murder, am I right?
  5. I can't wait for the OP to start a few more threads: "The Titanic's maiden voyage will go perfectly, thank god" "Dewey defeated Truman, thank god" "These eggs haven't hatched yet, but I've gone ahead and counted them, thank god"
  6. I'm not sure it would. What's left of his story to tell? I feel like his life in Alaska would be pretty boring. The last thing he'd want to do is call attention to himself.
  7. This is according to FanGraphs: https://www.fangraphs.com/leaders.aspx?pos=all&stats=fld&lg=all&qual=0&type=1&season=2019&month=0&season1=2019&ind=0&team=0,ts&rost=0&age=0&filter=&players=0&startdate=2019-01-01&enddate=2019-12-31&sort=11,d
  8. That isn't how it works. You don't automatically upgrade from the worst defensive team in the majors to an average defense just by marginally improving four positions. If they'd been only slightly below average in 2019, maybe I could buy it. But they were way, way worse than that, and they have a much further way to go. I also don't agree with the premise that all these guys are upgrades. Mancini has had a negative DRS at first base in each season of his career. Hays might be more of a corner guy. Santander is unproven. And I don't think Hanser Alberto will be the everyday second baseman, considering his .609 OPS against right-handers last year, so he might end up platooning with someone who's not a particularly good fielder.
  9. You do realize the Orioles were THE WORST defensive team in the majors in 2019 by Defensive Runs Saved (-105). How on earth does that team become average defensively with no changes other than adding Hays (and possibly shifting Mancini to first)?
  10. Elias is clearly more outgoing than DD if you've ever heard either of them speak. Nothing has changed that narrative.
  11. Schoop became a part-time player because Luis Arraez came up and hit .334. He's the reason the Twins wouldn't be interested in Villar.
  12. Gleyber Torres wasn't a highly ranked prospect? He was the Cubs' top prospect, and No. 26 in all of baseball (per MLB.com), when they traded him to the Yankees.
  13. Of course. He wrote and directed it. There's no Breaking Bad sequel without Gilligan.
  14. Playing in San Diego will do that to a hitter. It was the third-worst ballpark in the majors for hits. By OPS+, he had a better offensive season than 2013 and about equal with 2014 and 2017.
