  1. I think our best alignment has Mancini at 1st Base and Nunez at DH. Unfortunately, there's that one issue that gets in the way.
  2. Or until someone better comes along. Mountcastle could be that someone.
  3. I’m not even ready to declare Hays or Santander Major League outfielders.
  4. With LeBlanc and Shepherd, we have Joey and Chandler. Hire Ross Grimsley to be pitching coach and one way that the Orioles will improve is by having a Friends-lier pitching staff.
  5. At the very least, I don't think he's been a forceful advocate for releasing Davis and accepting that it's a sunk cost.
  6. Didn't give a grade because the actions that he's taken won't bear fruit for a few years. The one action that he hasn't taken leaves me disappointed that I have to watch any Davis at bats. Any. At all. But, I'm resigned to it. I'm hoping to see players - prospects - that Dan Duquette acquired begin to move up and maybe even onto the Major League roster. Hays for (hopefully) a full season, and at some point Mountcastle, Akin, Kremer, Diaz, Zimmerman, Baughman, Wells, etc.. And, I'll eagerly watch the minors for progress by last years draftees.
  7. Greta Thunburg. She's got a big head start on Bono. Took him 60 years to get this bad.
  8. I assume that Mullins is still in our system for two reasons. 1) Someone in the front office - Elias or his development staff - believe that Mullins still has talent that can be harnessed; or 2) Just like 95% of minor leaguers, someone has to play the position, even if he'll never be a successful major league player. We don't want routine fly balls off of Akin or Kremer dropping into centerfield for a double all the time.
  9. If used primarily at 1B, I don't think Mancini's defense will have a negative impact on any team. He'd be an upgrade for them at the plate.
  10. I'm I the only one that thought you were just being a little sarcastic here?
  11. But what about my Tub-A-Glub of movie theater popcorn smothered in salt and butter. Oh...and a large Diet Coke.
  12. What a stupid comment. Manny was born in Miami and spoke fluent English.
