  1. Does anyone know if any of our beat writers, or anyone else for that matter, is tracking what’s happening in Bowie? I for one would love to know what’s going on there. Sim games? How many catchers? Are they tracking innings thrown to duplicate a minors season? Are the batters facing live pitching? I’d be curious to know how Hall and Rodriguez are going to keep their innings/arm strength up whole losing a year of competition. Thoughts?
  2. I’ve been a Sisco fan and would gladly see him now.
  3. By my count that’s 6 or 7 passed balls my sophomore son would’ve caught. Not skill either, just plain laziness. I know catching.... move your body laterally for Christ’s sake. Bring Holladay up already.
  4. Thanks. So roughly Aug 20th. Hopefully sooner.
  5. Someone coach me up. I know that certain aspects of service time have been prorated and minor leaguers have obviously been effected. In past years we needed to wait until I believe the 3rd week of May to save a year of arbitration. What is the date on this shortened season, more specifically when will we see Mountcastle? The Davis departure stinks of him bailing on season, which would be a godsend for the O’s who are looking for a place to play a defensively limited Mountcastle.
  6. @Frobby It took less than six months. It’s my second release and I am currently working on my third. My day job is being a NYS Corrections Officer. If you read it I’d love to hear your thoughts!
  7. Hi, all. Long time hangouter and lifelong Orioles fan here. I am an indie author and I’ve recently released my new book on Amazon. It is my hope that some of you will be interested in my tale of a fictional Orioles pitcher who attempts to rehab a serious injury with the help of some quirky and loyal friends. We are still a few weeks away from watching any real baseball, why not pass that time reading? Big Thanks to any and all who support me. Go O’s!!! ‘The Saturday Night Rehab Club’ By W.A. Welsh https://www.amazon.com/dp/B087L31FBR/ref=cm_sw_r_tw_api_i_qQ59EbWR8WYDD P.S. I have received permission from a moderator to post this. Again, thanks.
  8. It’s more in the line of a Bull Durham type comedy. There is a romantic plot line like most stories. One of my reviewers referred to it as, ‘Bull Durham meets the Big Lebowski’. I thought that was funny.
  9. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B087L31FBR/ref=cm_sw_r_tw_api_i_PCv4EbMQDP2Q4 Hi, O’s fans. My name is W.A. Welsh and I am an indie author. I’ve just released my new book this month on Amazon. It’s a baseball themed comedy and features an Orioles pitcher as the main character. I’m a longtime Hangout member and I’d be thrilled if you all checked it out. Thanks for the support and Go Orioles!!
  10. From all accounts his defense is decent. Ruiz will never amount to much. There’s nobody blocking him. He is not such a huge prospect that the team would be worried about starting his clock? Whaddya think?
  11. At the risk of sounding insensitive, maybe don’t wear a gaudy hunk of gold around your neck in a third world country. But that’s just me......
  12. I’m doubtful that Sucre is in our long term plans and he’s probably a limited offensive player. But I’ll tell you what, I get a kick out of his body language when the pitchers pussyfoot around the strike zone or when they shake him off. He gets obviously annoyed and irritated. I like it, take charge back there!!!
  13. Viking on the bump. Beer in my hand. All is right in the world. Rest of the season might suck but today things are good. Bask in it, fellow O’s fans.
  14. Yeah, yeah.... I know. Way early and off topic. But my wife has agreed to split her precious Disney vacation with me and spend some time in Sarasota next year. My question is what time of year/when do they announce the spring training game dates.
  15. I think Stewart, Martin and Kline all make the 25. Stewart and Martin as starters. Tempted to say Harvey too, but they’ll wait for service clock.
