  1. Mainly, why is Blair not in CF? No problem with Boog in LF.  Alomar was the best 2B to play for the O's even if it was only 3 years. Sure would want Raffy's bat in the lineup, but if not DH would you play him over Eddie at 1B? He won the GG at DH. If you replace O'Day with Hoyt, as I would, then I'll take Gus at C.

    One of many things I haven't seen is a batting title.  The only modern Oriole to win one was Frank, five years before I was born and with the 3rd-lowest mark in league history.  In my lifetime I want to see an Oriole hit .400.

    That seems likely.

    Another thing we haven't seen since Frank is a Triple Crown. Also I'd like to see an O break DiMaggio's streak record and hit an O hit 5 HR in a game.

     It hasnt left China, its just waiting for everyone to come back outside. I've read they are getting antsy to get their economic engine back up again, but they know all it will do is spread the virus. Im not sure what the answer is for them until some effective drugs come out. 

    It's not likely to be any better for us.

    It's never too early.   Funny that he sucked for 3 years but never thought about bulking back up before.   Decisions.  Decisions.  1) "Do I continue to take a beating from the fans over sucking?".   2) "Do you take a buyout to spare myself the embarassment of being so bad while collecting so much money?'  or 3) "Do I try to regain something of the form I had, collect all of my money, and not get roasted by the fans and media?".      It looks like he chose #3 but if '#3 was as easy as lifting like crazy over the winter you have to wonder why he didn't do that prior to 2018 and 2019.   Doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me.

    Have to agree.If he gets caught then he can retire,

    I know it is extreme small sample, but when was the last time he put together 8 PA's anywhere near what he's done so far? Is it too early to say the bulking may be helping and there's a chance of a .700 OPS this year? Going opposite field too. New swing?

    Is it too early to speculate that he might have taken some juice over the winter.
