  1. I updated the OP to include the entire BA top 30, kindly provided by Enjoy Terror. Also, I added Prospects1500. If anyone BP's list beyond the top 10, let me know.
  2. I’m just saying for purposes of this thread, I’m not sure there is anyone here who has seen or heard enough to comment on which of the utility guys has looked good or bad defensively. Velasquez has made an error, Urias has made 2. I don’t think any of the other utility candidates have made any. I recall Velasquez was mentioned for making a couple of good plays in the same game where he made an error. Nobody has played more than 34 innings in the field, which isn’t much of a basis for judgment.
  3. https://www.masnsports.com/school-of-roch/2020/03/hardys-former-teammates-excited-about-his-arrival-in-camp.html Comments about Hardy from Iglesias Davis, Mancini, Givens and Bleier.
  4. It’s tough to comment on defense without seeing the games.
  5. Very generally, I’d prefer that posters not quote the entirety of very long posts when responding.
  6. Per Roch, Wells has let it be known that he prefers “Alexander.” Too bad, it’s longer to type.
  7. Well, we have our answer, as Bannon was reassigned to MiL camp today.
  8. Well, you got 3 of the 5 (Lowther, Canelo, McCoy). I wasn’t at all surprised to see Wells go. Bannon surprised me a little but Hyde has an awful lot of infielders to look at and Bannon clearly wasn’t going to be on the OD roster.
  9. Break up the Orioles! A lot has been going right the last few days.
  10. What would you say sbout the arm strength of Adam Hall and Gunnar Henderson, based on what you’ve seen?
  11. But I guess the question is, what will Hernaiz’s arm strength be when he is 21 (Ortiz) or 23 (Grenier)? He’s only 18 years old.
  12. I think that’s hilarious. Probably shot a huge hole in Cal’s ego.
  13. Too hot in the summer. They should have thought of that when they built it. But now the local government is paying for another one. Pretty crazy.
  14. Emerson Hancock had a meh night last night, 5.2 IP, 8 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 10 K’s. The strikeouts were nice, otherwise not much to write home about. Spencer Torkelson had five plate appearances and walked three times, got hit by a pitch and struck out. Pitchers are being super careful with him. Austin Martin went 0 for 3 with a walk. So did Nick Gonzalez.
  15. It helps when your closer goes 47 for 47.
  16. Perhaps it’s time to DFA your roommate.
  17. Those are two different things. A replacement player is well below average for a major leaguer.
  18. You know, Trumbo was a lousy fielder but I feel that 1.6 rWAR really understates his value to that team. I just feel like he came through in key situations a lot that year. I don’t think we would have made the playoffs without him. So shoot me.
  19. It’s assuming a lot to say Harvey is a potential all star closer. He throws 99 — so do a lot of other relievers who are not all star closers. The guy has thrown about 27 professional innings as a reliever, none of which were as a closer. Plus, he got shut down at the end of last year with a tired arm, and you have to consider his long injury history. I’m not saying you can’t make a case to put him above Akin and Kremer (the OH list did), but there’s a lot to consider in making that judgment.
  20. I was wrong about last spring’s OPS. His slash line was .189/.318/.432 for a .750 OPS. https://forum.orioleshangout.com/forums/index.php?/topic/34329-189318432/&tab=comments#comment-2437503 I’m far from optimistic, but keeping an open mind about whether his added bulk will at least allow him to hit a few more fingers and maybe regain some confidence.
  21. I recall he had an OPS over .800 last spring, though he had a pretty low BA and a lot of strikeouts. He hit a few homers over the spring. I think the K’s are the big thing to look for, especially how they happen. Even when Davis was good he struck out a lot, but he didn’t have that deer in the headlights look he’s had the last 2-3 years.
  22. As you can see, there is a pretty high consensus on the Orioles' top 20 or so. Note that I only have a top 10 for BA and BP and a top 20 for Keith Law. If anyone has a more complete BA or BP list, let me know. And if there are other lists I should add, post a link here and I will try to do it. It took me a while to do this one because of formatting issues when I cut and pasted from Excel. It looks like the three guys who some rate much higher than OH are Adam Hall (#5 Law, #7 BP), Ryan McKenna (#5 BP, #8 Fangraphs, #10 Law) and Cadyn Grenier (#10 BP, #15 Fangraphs, #17 Law but unranked by OH). The guys OH is very high on compared to others are Brenan Hanifee (#15 on OH but unranked by Prospects Live, #34 by Fangraphs and no higher than 20 elsewhere) and Daryl Hernaiz (#16 on OH but ranked no higher than #22 elsewhere). Once you get into the 22-30 range there is a wide variety of opinion.
  23. So, the OH list is the “master.” It does not include the Rule 5 guys or the players acquired in the Bundy trade or off waivers. Based on comments made by Tony and Luke, I believe it’s likely that Bailey, Bradish and Peek would have cracked our top 30 on the OH list, which was published before they were acquired.

    BA Top 10

    Has anyone seen the rest of BA’s top 30 for us? I’m trying to put together a spreadsheet of all the various top 30 lists for the O’s. I don’t have BP’s list either.
