  1. I’ll take 5 career rWAR for “success”.
  2. 1. Depends on how much you like Mancini as a player, and I'm not convinced he's got more than 5 great years in him, but... 2. Obviously Longoria took his contract before his rookie year so that's an extreme example, but lets hypothetically say Mancini was the kind of guy to get a contract like 6/100 in free agency, but you can buy him out now for 9/80 ... his money is 1) a big check guaranteed now and 2) eliminates his risk of losing everything to injury or ineffectiveness .... at the expense of $20M.
  3. Lol, I’m too young for Steve Kline but he sounds charming.
  4. I mean, I’m sure he’s a nice person but his 6.44 ERA (third worst for qualified relievers in the entire sport), and -0.9 fWAR were horrid. Every time I flipped on the TV Baez was in the middle of giving away the game.
  5. Easily my least favorite Oriole player ever. That season was unbearable to watch and he accounted for like 60% of the unbearableness.
  6. I don’t buy into billion dollar organizations crying poor about stuff. There’s nothing this team wouldn’t be able to afford because they spent their full allotment. Spending it is better than not spending it because once it is gone, it’s gone.
  7. That would make a good case to spend that money then. We will lose the ability to spend it if we don’t do anything.
  8. I mean, I like DSJ and hope he does well. I don’t think he’s a long term piece here. I don’t think he’s a starter and he’s not good enough in the field to really be a backup.
  9. Michael Kelly. My bad. Doing those from memory.
  10. Brian Matusz, Dan Schlereth, Jed Bradley, Cesar Cabral, Mike Ohlman, Alexi Casilla, Mat Latos, and Merrill Kelly are in the Atlantic League too. I think I recall all of them as former O’s too.
  11. I guess all I’m saying is, BJ, sorry you lost your job, but what have we gained from your tenure here? Maybe that’s not fair, but I don’t feel like I’ve been treated fairly as a fan either.
  12. Im pushing 40 and Delmon’s double is mine. I feel like people older than me have no concept of what it’s like to not know about having a team worth cheering for.
  13. It would suck if the Surhoff Orioles were successful and they implemented these changes, but right now I’m 35 years deep into this franchise and have experienced 5 playoff teams (1/7) and 12 winning seasons (1/3). We’ve all discussed at length the nepotism and flat out incompetence in the warehouse that manifests itself in the on-field talent year after year. It’s time to clean house. It has been time for as long as I can remember. Even at 35 I sometimes feel like the youngest person on the OH. A lot of you fans older than me talk about an era I wasn’t alive for and sometimes it frustrates the heck out of me. The days of Brooks, Eddie, Earl, Palmer, Frank... I have zero concept of their contributions to this franchise other than stat sheets. For most of my life the Orioles have been a punchline. Im sorry that Surhoff feels slighted, but everything anyone has done in this organization for the last three decades comes off as feeling around in the dark for a light switch.
  14. Sevy is the only one I DONT think will be able to. His early season breakout seemed to be the exception rather than the rule. I’m thinking his current production is closer to what he can maintain. That’s not necessarily bad for a catcher, but it’s not amazing, and we all know that he’s not here long term anyway.
  15. https://www.prospectslive.com/featured-articles/2019/9/17/data-sets-that-matter-pitchers-who-miss-bats-without-missing-the-zone-2 Grayson Rodriguez appears at #18 on this list.
  16. That seems like an Austin Hays type injury, sad to say.
  17. Seen a couple dudes this year getting called up after toiling forever. Brian Moran making his debut at 30 after being drafted in 2009. Similiarly Enderson Franco was an international signee from 2009 as well— hasn’t played yet but he’s in San Fran. Ryan Court was outrighted already but debuted at 31 years old this year, drafted 23rd round in 2011 like Hultzen.
  18. Asks the question: where’s the line between too good to run on, and bad enough to be run on enough to throw out 44 runners? At some point I’m sure someone says “he has a good arm; don’t run on him”, but that evidently didn’t happen here. But why?
  19. Let’s get one thing straight buddy— I didn’t say anything about drafting a pitcher at #1 either. What in the world are you on about?
  20. That’s by design rather than coincidence.
  21. I don’t think that’s as lopsided as you think it is.
