  1. This isn't really an "easy job for any contractor." You can't just lop off a couple rows of seating from a concrete slab and leave it at that. There are some things you could do to raise the height of the walls but that changes the look of the park pretty considerably. There's a reason why the one time they tried making the outfield bigger they moved home plate and effectively the entire infield in (and it caused a bunch of problems with batters not seeing the ball because they had shifted relative to the "batters' eye" - the large green wall in CF).
  2. They go to arb unless they agree with him on a contract like we did with Bleier.
  3. The year Switch Hitting Jesus was #1 you had a poll where all 4 or 5 of the choices were Wieters, with various misspellings.
  4. But we've yet to see a poll with Matt Fwieters as an option. #throwback
  5. Would honestly be surprised to see him in Bowie for more than 2-3 starts this year. He would need to completely blow away high A hitters to the point where it is hurting his development to keep him there. Of course, maybe that will happen, he has the talent. As Frobby said, the jump to AA mid year for a pitcher who isn't repeating high A has been pretty rare for the Orioles, and I don't get the sense Elias is aggressive with promotions (actually quite the opposite).
  6. This is what I suggested. Not sure how wildcard read into my response that he should stay in Frederick all year.
  7. Frederick will have last year's Delmarva staff, which is as important or more so than the staff heading to Norfolk this year. Might also have Knight repeating the level. And Hall should be at Bowie.
  8. I don't think they're going to have him play three levels this season. Frederick through the AS break and then Bowie would put him within striking distance of playing in the majors in 2021 if that's something the team wants.

    Robot Ump Question

    You are required to have a catcher. Weirdly, the rules don't expressly say that, but they are written to imply that. For example, the rules prescribe a place where the catcher must be at the start of a play (behind home plate). 5.02 Fielding Positions When the ball is put in play at the start of, or during a game, all fielders other than the catcher shall be on fair territory. (a) The catcher shall station himself directly back of the plate. He may leave his position at any time to catch a pitch or make a play except that when the batter is being given an intentional base on balls, the catcher must stand with both feet within the lines of the catcher’s box until the ball leaves the pitcher’s hand. PENALTY: Balk. (b) The pitcher, while in the act of delivering the ball to the batter, shall take his legal position; (c) Except the pitcher and the catcher, any fielder may station himself anywhere in fair territory.
  10. She left to join the NFL Network and has done well for herself there.
  11. I loved Mychal's reaction ("F yeah" caught on camera).
  12. As good as he's looked, more ABs this year wouldn't hurt. I might bribe the manager to DH him and pinch run for him frequently, though.

    Not sure why you bumped this one but Luke deserves a cookie for his Santander take.
  14. This guy can play a little bit.
