  1. Last year, O's fans gave a standing ovation when Davis was taken out of the home opener. I don't see why there's any need for Davis to start the opener (or make regular starts at all), assuming he doesn't show any improvement in spring.
  2. Getting the best defensive players from where? And where/how are you acquiring all these ground ball pitchers? I'm not sure I understand the idea or how it would be implemented.
  3. Prepare to be disappointed. I don't see the Orioles avoiding being one of the five worst teams this year.
  4. I think Corn was being sarcastic. There's absolutely no chance that actually happens. Mountcastle already spent an entire season at Norfolk; he's not going to spend another full year there. Not with starting spots ripe for the taking in the outfield or first base (whichever one Mancini isn't playing). Mountcastle will be up by June at the latest, barring a disastrous first couple months at Norfolk.
  5. They announced a couple new events last week for season ticket holders. Birdland Brunch at the B&O Join the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday, January 25th from 8:00 a.m-11:00 a.m. at the B&O Railroad Museum (901 W. Pratt Street, Baltimore, MD 21223) for a one-of-a-kind event that is fun for the whole family! Enjoy a pancake breakfast, a press conference run by the kids featuring Orioles players John Means and Brendan Kline, admission into the B&O Museum, photo booth, face painting, caricature artists, an appearance by the Oriole Bird and more. Brews and O’s Join the Baltimore Orioles staff and players John Means and Brendan Kline on January 23rd, 2020 from 5:30pm-7:30pm at Raw Bar (2809 Boston Street, Baltimore, MD 21224) for a Q&A hosted by The Baltimore Sun sports reporters Jon Meoli and Nathan Ruiz. Enjoy beer, wine, passed appetizers and a special appearance by the Oriole Bird at this Birdland Members-only event.
  6. One time I wrote publicly that Bergesen had suffered his career-altering injury while filming a MASN commercial. A MASN employee sent me a stern e-mail pointing out (correctly) that the commercial that injured him wasn't for MASN, it was for Orioles season tickets. So I feel obligated to defend MASN's honor here. They're not to blame for Bergesen.
  7. FYI, Roll Tide, if you're going to copy and paste text from another site, please include a link. Like so: https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/nfl-week-16-playoffs-standings-scenarios-raiders-crazy-playoffs-scenario-every-possible-seeding-outcome/
  8. IIRC, both the Orioles and the visiting team would have to agree to move the game. I think last time the visiting team (the White Sox) wouldn't agree to it.
  9. Straily is already the fifth pitcher from the 2019 Orioles to go to Asia next year. Along with Brooks, Ynoa, Wright, and Tayler Scott.
  10. None of them necessarily have to be "cut," right? All of them could remain affiliates with MLB, but one could just be reaffiliated with a different team.
  11. This is absolutely not true. People would talk about it every time they took the field. Those guys' off-the-field actions will continue to follow them for as long as their careers last, even if you believe that shouldn't be the case.
  12. Fouts was saying it was the wrong call for the Bills to go for two instead of kicking the extra point there. Why, though? When you're down by 15, seems like that's the right call.
  13. I don't think any of that is correct. The No. 6 seed plays the No. 3 seed, so the Steelers would go to the Texans. The No. 5 Bills would play at the No. 4 Chiefs. The No. 1 Ravens would then host the worse-seeded winning team from the first round, which theoretically could be any of the Steelers, Bills, or Chiefs. The No. 2 Patriots would host the better-seeded winning team, which could be any of the Bills, Chiefs, or Texans.
  14. This is a joke, right? You think the national media just, what, wouldn't notice if the O's signed Russell and/or Heimlich? The O's got some national media backlash just for trading Jonathan Villar. I can't even imagine how much backlash they'd get for signing one of those two guys, much less both.
