  1. If I was the O's, I would hire Drungo Hazewood to do a regular feature on baseball history. Baseball in the 1890's would be a much better program than whatever infomercial MASN has on.
  2. Proven O's starters: Cobb & Means. The O's are counting on Cobb being healthy and a bunch of unproven minor leaguers and cast offs being dependable starters (able to go 5 innings regularly). What happens if (when) Cobb gets hurt. The O's are already going to have the lowest payroll or 2nd lowest payroll. The idea that they can't afford to throw a few million at a major league starter is ridiculous. I hope you guys are ready for a lot of games that are 9-0 in the 3rd inning. If not Cashner, then another major league starter.
  3. And also that, “the Orioles drafts of the 2010s have a chance to look even stronger in a few years - their final three first-round picks of the decade (DL Hall, Grayson Rodriguez, Adley Rutschman) rank among the top 50 prospects in baseball. We all know that Rutschman is a top 50 prospect, but I didn't think Hall or Rodriguez had made any top 50 lists. Anyway, its good to know they are considered part of the top 50 prospects.
  4. Give Chris Davis an offer to retire that he can't refuse. Anyone have any spare horse heads laying around.
  5. Is it time to offer Mancini a multi year deal? If the O's don't do that and keep him for 2020, they might non tender him next offseason. Maybe offer something like 3 years/$21 mill. I think a deal like that would increase his trade value, if he is producing. If he puts up a 35 HR/100 RBI/.850 OPS year, $10 mill is possible next offseason, IMO.
  6. I know I would be happy with that and I think most O's fans would be too.
  7. I'll take the Nats last 5 years of "failure" as the O's next 5 years. To me, a large part of the excitement of baseball is being in a pennant race or wild card race where every game matters. If Elias can lead the O's to the postseason 80% of the time, even if the O's aren't winning in the postseason, I would have a hard time calling that a failure, especially when the O's are probably having to knock out the Yankees or Red Sox to get to the postseason.
  8. I think its notable the O's are going to start using it in single A. The past regimes seemed to have the attitude they were going to spend as little as possible developing minor leaguers, and when they got to they majors, then they would try to fix them.
  9. What does the strength of their system have to do with the prospects he would bring back. As the O's found out with Manny, teams with top prospects just put those prospects off limits in trade talks. The O's might be lucky to get someone in Boston's top 10 prospects, probably top 20 for a team like LA or Atlanta.
  10. Be sure to take a break every couple of hours so you don't become exhausted.
  11. Its a meaningless game for the 2019 Orioles, but not for Austin Hays. He's showing he's a major league ballplayer and he makes major league defensive plays. The O's and major leagues in general need more excitement.
  12. Best overall group the O's have sent in years. Usually it's more suspects than prospects. I follow the minors fairly closely, but often there's guys the O's send who I have no idea who they are.
  13. Is he working on actually swinging at strike 3?
