  1. The team hopefully asked him as part of that decision. I'd rather be playing baseball with my teammates, then sitting at home and wondering. Clearly, the baseball suffered in this case, but maybe it's what he needed. On a team that wasn't about wins and loses, I hope it was his decision to play.
  2. Their care has certainly been far more focused for draft/international signings. At least this year the international signings are off-season, so there should be a bit more to talk about this winter. Hopefully it isn't limited to that.
  3. I see you in the 71-75 option. So yeah, you missed. Haha. So did pretty much everyone else though (I was 61-65).
  4. I’m more concerned with potential changes to competitive balance picks. I’d be curious to know what’s on the table for the new CBA.
  5. https://www.espn.com/mlb/standings/_/sort/gamesbehind/dir/desc/season/2020/group/overall Actually we had the same record last year and drafted higher because of holding the tie breaker. We did have a worse 2019. I wonder how often the same 2 teams had same record 2 seasons in a row.
  6. I’m a bit stressed we stink this bad and might still not get the 1st pick in the draft and/or might go under slot…. Does that still count?
  7. https://awfulannouncing.com/mlb/fred-mcgriff-told-the-story-of-how-he-ended-up-in-the-tom-emanski-ads.html Clearly, this confirms Moose is indeed Ken Griffey Jr.
  8. Both sides are likely trying a bit harder. Weren't great to begin with and mild downward changes can lead to 0-15s (and counting).
  9. https://www.orioleshangout.com/2020/10/12/2020-top-30-prospect-list/ I don't follow as much as some, so I went digging a bit further. He was #21 just last year. Clearly he can slide for other reasons and a non-playing COVID year makes this list a bit more fluid, but that is a big difference.
  10. The only knock I've seen mentions holes in his swing. I feel like that is what we target, so it's probably not something we avoid. And we like outfielders. Only true knock is he isn't a college pick. Hmmm.
  11. Since they are getting worse, I won't argue the point of clearly being the worst this year, but man this is a brutal 2 week result. Run differential full season - minus 218 over 118 games (outscored on average 1.85 runs per game). Current stretch - minus 86 over 13 (outscored on average by 6.62 per game) Rest of season - minus 132 over 105 games (outscored 1.25 per game) They certainly are playing the worst right now, but that run differential is massively shifted by the last 2 weeks. Shift the losing streak to season average (1.85 runs) and we'd gain ~62 runs back. Not h
  12. Silver lining? Maybe Arizona will win more games with him...
  13. On a passed ball, "Smelley - Sharts at Home" could be a thing you hear on TV one day.
  14. https://www.camdenchat.com/2017/5/31/15719516/orioles-pitching-prospect-development-parker-bridwell I believe Parker Bridwell is the player you are remembering.
  15. Ironic timing of the current tweet, since Bundy just passed the IP total from last years shortened season. The tweet makes it sound like it's continuing to trend in the wrong direction. https://www.mlb.com/player/dylan-bundy-605164 2020 LAA AL 6 3 3.29 11 11 1 0 0 0 0 65.2 51 27 24 5 1018 4 17 1 7
