  1. Sisco is a bad defensive catcher but not nearly as bad as some make him out to be. He isn't unplayable at the position or anything and I don't think he is much worse than Severino.
  2. I wanted to see Stewart get a lot of ABs this year and I'm not changing that stance over 12 ABs to start the season. To me, he looks like he is having good at bats. Let's get him as much time as we can this year and try and figure out what we have.
  3. Pitch count. I think he had 19 in the 1st, 30 in the second and 24-25 in the third. Ended up at 87 through 4.
  4. I like Bleier, he had some pretty good success here and I wish him nothing but the best going forward. That being said, nobody should expect much of a return here. He's a 33 year old LH middle reliever with a career 4.1 WAR who posted a 5.37 ERA last season. I'd be thrilled if the PTBNL is a low minors lottery ticket.
  5. Davis could rejoin the team tonight: https://www.masnsports.com/school-of-roch/2020/07/davis-could-return-to-orioles-tonight.html Being held out as a precautionary measure because he was running a low fever believed to be related to his sinuses. Has had multiple negative COVID-19 tests. Print the playoff tickets.
  6. I'd like to find some video of him in AAA in 2018...I have a pretty good guess as to how he was successful there and it won't work up here.
  7. You'll find people who are higher on Lowther than Akin and Kremer (I'm not one of them). If he is left unprotected I'd be very surprised if he wasn't selected in the Rule 5. I think all three will be protected personally.
  8. Right, "something there" likely means a middle or long reliever. But unlike many other pitchers on this roster, I think he has a realistic medium/long-term future pitching in the majors.
  9. He and Phillips are both clearly guys that had success in the minors by having good stuff and getting hitters to chase. They have horrendous command. Carroll missed his spot by 3 feet several times. I'd keep throwing them out there this year because why not but I don't think either has a chance of being a ML pitcher without some mechanical adjustments that will refine command.
  10. He missed a lot of bats last night, I think there is something there. He needs better fastball command though.
  11. Also, there have not been any of the gray road jerseys available in the orioles.com shop.
  12. I'd like to see Zimmermann, Lowther and Wells there too.
  13. So much for the worry that we aren't going to spend our entire draft allotment.
  14. I don't think there are any lower than 60, I bet the average is likely 65. Doesn't really matter because we are splitting hairs at that point. I don't believe the hit tool is a 70 and I am pretty confident the Orioles don't either.
