  1. So basically all of our top prospects other than Rutschman and Rodriguez
  2. I think every year there's a lot of speculation as to who it will be and most years there's like 1-2 interesting guys and then a lot of filler.
  3. If they sign as FAs they're still exposed to Rule 5? I didn't think they were, but based on the comments above sounds like that's not correct.
  4. I'm not wildcard, but yeah, I would be. I can't imagine he has very much trade value.
  5. I have zero recollection of Brandon Waddell. EDIT - Just saw that Moose beat me to that one.
  6. Wow, floor of a #2 for Rodriguez. That's pretty high praise. Let's hope he stays healthy.
  7. Well of the guys Frobby listed only Ellsbury was picked after Snyder.
  8. To be honest I feel like every year we say Norfolk should be really stacked and every year Norfolk isn't very good.
  9. Well that won't be possible, we didn't pick 1st this year or last year.
  10. I like to think that the walk totals went up as the year progressed because pitchers recognized how dangerous the bat was. That pitch he turned on in the inner half last night was impressive. Super quick bat for a guy his size.
  11. In my very vague definition of a "breakout" year, I'd say Stowers best qualified in the upper levels, and Pinto best qualified in the lower levels. Stowers went from a guy that didn't seem all that interesting to a guy that seems likely to be in BAL next year. Pinto went from a throw-in of a trade to possibly our most intriguing SP in the low minors. But the fact that there are multiple choices is certainly a good sign.
  12. I've been a bit bearish on Hays for the past few years, but I think he's being overlooked a bit. I was hoping he'd get that OPS up to .800 with his hot finish to the year but it doesn't look like he's quite going to make it. Still, it was a solid season for him. Him, Mountcastle, Mullins, Rutschman - that's a solid core to start with from a positional standpoint.
  13. Can't see the D-backs doing so either. Not really concerned about it. They'll get a very high-end talent either way.
  14. It's a tight race going into the final week. After Diaz went 0-5 with 4 more Ks yesterday, Ripken currently has a .468 OPS compared to .459 for Diaz. In what has been an almost overwhelmingly positive MiLB season Diaz has certainly been one of the disappointments.
  15. Prior to the Phillies series the Orioles had played 18 of their previous 22 games against the AL East. As bad as they've been this year, the schedule certainly doesn't help. EDIT - Actually 19 out of 23, I missed the DH against the Blue Jays.
  16. Yeah, I seem to remember in the past there being a lot of anticipation about the AFL and then it usually being a letdown. And I think that may be even more the case now because Elias thinks his instructs are better than AFL experience, rightly or wrongly. Especially after last year being what it was I'm not anticipating many if any top guys going. Maybe we'll be surprised.
  17. Yeah, would have preferred him to do well of course, but...I kinda like that he ended on a stinker.
  18. I have to say that I have an irrational dislike to Eshelman based on the role he's filled here. And I know it's not his fault, he's just taking opportunities as they are given to him, but to me he symbolizes all of the suck of this rebuild/approach. MLB really needs to fix these service time issues so we can at least watch players that have an interesting future in seasons like this.
  19. I mean Zimmermann by far had the best statistical year of the 4. Based on that alone I don't think he should lumped in with Akin/Lowther/Wells. I think with all 3 of the latter trio, we didn't see them at their best this year. Akin was always a back end/swingman type. I think we've seen glimpses of results from him. Lowther just never got on track this year, possibly due to being bounced around so much earlier in the year. Way too many walks. And Wells has not yet shown the command in the majors that he did in the minors. He's walked 13 guys in 31 innings. That's not the Wells that
  20. Frankly I think it would be a bit of an insult at this point if they started him at Delmarva next year.
  21. We already have one actually. https://forum.orioleshangout.com/forums/index.php?/topic/42425-elementary-my-dear-watson/&tab=comments#comment-2695456
  22. I agree, but no one expected that situation for Manny prior to 2012 either. Of course he was a much higher rated prospect then Gunnar.

    This thread was about the Pirates. Think you're tilting at windmills here.
  24. Teter's an interesting guy to me. He's supposedly elite defensively. Will be interesting to see how his DII success translates to the pro level.
  25. Haha, I seriously just came to ask who will have the higher OPS by seasons end, Diaz or Ripken?
