  1. He pitched 1 inning in game 162 and was 92 on FB and 11 of 15 pitches were strikes per CBS sportsline. I hope some pitching savants here can provide more.
  2. Walker is the youngest, just back from TJ and was cut loose to avoid a $5 M commitment. He probably is looking for ML contract with good opportunity for innings. Who is a better fit than Bal?
  3. And then again, my mother, God rest her soul, made awesome sour beef, to kill for. Now my father was Hungarian and his mother was German so they influenced the recipe. I have been called alot of things over the years but someone that goes with the flow.....
  4. like the worst think since sliced corned beef - What the H is wrong with sliced corned beef?? Mind you sliced pastrami, steamed on rye would be my choice, but.....
  5. I expect 2 spots to be filled with tandem long guys going 3-4, hence Armstrong, Hess, Rucker, Stewart, and Bailey. Hert was just going for a comment from Weems haha.
  6. Donnie Hart made it back for 7 innings last year with ERA 0.00 and faced both lefties and righties. He is a FA right now. If you want to believe Bleier's sub par performance was injury related and now he is ready to be his old self, then I'll extend the same courtesy to Fry and Hart. I want 4-6 multi-inning guys that don't have bad splits but can be sort of effective airimg it out for 2-3 so we can piece together a rotation in 2020.
  7. I think as of today it is Means, Cobb, and Wojo and whoever does well in ST from Armstrong, Hess (because we/they had eyes on they last year), then probable Stewart, Bailey & Rucker, and then Akin or Kremer. I hold out hope for a Taijuan Walker-like signing, someone youngish coming off injury that just wants innings for <$5 M. Maybe we have the first 3 and hope for 5 innings and patch the other 2 spots with long men from the pen. Two could be "starters"and 4 long men paired with Castro, Givens, Harvey. I'm done with specialists like Hart, Fry, Bleier (sorry WC).
  8. So last spring, ME doesn't know.what he has on MLB roster or minors. He thinks Bundy, Cashner, Cobb is his rotation plus.a.cast of spare parts. Cobb is hurt and out but Means appears. He still moves Cashner leaving 2 starters. This year he has Means, who came out of nowhere, and maybe Cobb. Not nearly what he started with a year ago. Maybe a better handle on minors but the real prospects are not knocking yet. If Cobb is servicable I think he keeps him and deals him off season or next deadline. Reason is he won't get much anyway and would have to pay more to move him in 20 than 21. Cobb to eat innings in 20 if healthy. More prospect development over budget savings.
  9. What's this we stuff Kemo sabi?(sp) This boy ain't doin no fastin.
  10. Well, I'm going to compliment Mancini and like Frobby it does make me happy to see a guy like Mancini who does want to stay with the team that drafted and developed him. Interloper also is right, it might not be the best use of resources to extend Mancini. But in my mind's eye, there is something different about Mancini. He seems to be maximizing his given skill set. Tony says he has a high baseball IQ. He has adjusted at the plate to be very productive. I think a player like him leads by example and maybe Hays and Mountcastle benefit from his example and approach their greater potential. I can dream and root for Trey in the meantime.
  11. There is a German Biergarten in Leesburg called Doner. They feature 24 beers on tap, 18 imported from Germany and 6 local craft beers. They have opened a sister operation in Frederick, just saying. (Bratwurst, currywurst, doner, schnitzel (pork or lamb). What could go wrong???lol
  12. And apparently a major killer of bees for pollination.
  13. What do we know about Dilson Herrera (minor-free agent), specifically defense. He seems to be mostly 2B and 3B, has had cups of coffee in the Majors over last 2=3 seasons. Seems to hit in the Minors.
  14. Saturdays are good choice but as for location does somewhere between Baltimore and Washington make sense? I have no sense of how many are in VA or North and East of Baltimore or in southern MD. Maybe Frederick area or Bowie?
  15. Wasn't there also a Cuban pitcher about to be eligible this cycle?
  16. Happy New Year! Within 6 months I believe we will know the answer.
  17. Absolutely and he credits Holt I believe so that is hopeful for holding on to gains going forward. When DD brought in Rick Petersen I thought that would be a big positive but IMO Buck didn't support it in the MiL and after a few years Petersen left. Now we hear of P3-type programs. I'm pretty sure Petersen was working with the surgeon in AL (Andrews?) to do bio-mechanical analysis. I think they called it 3P something. It stuck in my head because I could never figure out what the "Ps" stood for. I think they were more concerned with avoiding injury rather than maximizing performance but I suppose they could go hand in hand. Does anone know if the current programs are an evolution of the Petersen work or what the damn Ps stand for?
  18. Deep into page 3 and nobody has mentioned hot dogs and coke, I'm amazed lol.
  19. I think Buck went to PA and said he needed a outfielder for a pennant run. that would have preceded the PA call. Dysfunctional warehouse.
  20. I think DD was operating under his assumption that he could spend the salary money saved on International slots so he could go all in on the Mesa brothers or the pitcher. IMO the Bros Angelos led him to that assumption so DD would move as much money off the books as possible. For a short time it looked like DD had won the power struggle with Buck. Then when DD wanted to proceed he got let go as well and Brady and the Bros went to see the Mesas and low balled to look like they were trying. All they succeeded in doing was to drive the price up for Miami which is good, as the Mesa's don't look like hot prospects today.
  21. So where I am in Loudoun Co. VA I have no cable available although Comcast and FIOS are all around me (5 homes on 50 acres). Comcast said $10K to connect. I have used Dish and Direct TV and Hughes Net. Right now I have a local HotSpot with ATT that gives me landline (for account history) and Internet (22 GB high speed) for $25 plus fees. I can stream Netflix fine but it wouldn't do for gamers.
  22. I think this is the core of what ME is doing. Like when DD arrived and started churning the 40-man. ME is betting on development in the minors of those he deems worthy and any he can acquire. He has little to trade, spent most of last draft on position players, now is supplementing minors with college arms he scouted using available assets. Will be interesting how much Holt and Co. can do to separate wheat from chaff. Might shorten the time for minors to top 10 & feeding MLB team or result in a barn (warehouse) fire.
  23. CoC, I hope you are trying to be humorous and I did leave you that opening, but I never want to see CD in an Oriole uniform again.
