  1. What's your plan to address pitching?
  2. I could understand taking an underslot SP at #5, but another OF??? Gawd almighty.
  3. Bet he falls to the Nats- which is really going to tick me off.
  4. The beer tastes a bit colder this morning! Anybody have any info. on the parade?
  5. Hopes and prayers Weams! I have mad respect for your love of O's and knowledge of baseball. But, when you trolled the Blue Jays blog during the Dan Duquette fiasco, that was absolutely epic! Matter of fact, I recently looked up that pitching prospect that OH's wanted in return for Duquette (kid named Hoffman). Journeyman.
  6. If Tony could figure out a way to televise these sim games, using animated lego-type characters, I'd watch at least three innings every night.
  7. Mike Devereaux. Great athlete, great attitude, great O. If I ever run into him, first thing I'd ask him is "Mike - was that HR you hit against the Angels fair or foul?"
  8. Perhaps it's a players union thing? Otherwise, Elias would have Davis in a mandatory, structured hitting program from October to February.
  9. This is like being a kid on Christmas morning. After weeks of anticipation and buildup, you open all your presents and ask "is that it?"
  10. How many pennies on the dollar did ATL get when they dumped Gausman? What actual asset did the Reds get for Gausman?
  11. The center-piece of the Gausman trade was dumping O'Day's salary. Slot money was a throw-in since ATL couldn't use it.
  12. Many OHers were critical of the Gausman trade when it went down. In hindsight, it was a clear win for O's. $$$ saved made trade worthwhile. Getting a prospect like Zimmermann was a bonus. Give this trade a year and see how it shakes out.
  13. Former KC 1b coach, Rusty Kuntz, is looking for a gig.
  14. That was a great trade for the O's. Dollar savings aside, Zimmermann is a legit prospect and the O's got a lot more for Gausman than the Braves did when they dumped him and, most recently, when the Reds dumped him. I'm hoping this trade works out equally as well.
  15. I say they should remove first 10 rows in outfield, move fences back

    Catching

    Agreed. I don;t see catching situation as a priority. It's all about the pitching. If you throw a ball waist-high middle of plate, it doesn't matter whose catching.
  17. Anonymous scouts thought Hobgood was a first round talent.
  18. Went to see a fight the other night and a damn baseball game broke out.
  19. Kinda like all the rumored suitors we had for Givens a couple weeks ago.
  20. Cashner got shelled last night. 5.2 IP, 7 ER, 5 BB.
