  1. I've been thinking that a lot of the problems are just that he is not physically seeing the ball. How many times have we seen a pitcher groove a mistake fastball to him, straight as an arrow down the dead center of the plate, where the vast majority of AA players would have hit it to the moon... only for him to not even twitch or bat an eyelid as it screams past him to the mitt? A hundred? A thousand? Just his routine late reactions to the vast majority of the pitches thrown to him the last few seasons have convinced me that he is commonly having issues visually picking up the baseball.
  2. After we didn't resign him for 2019, he decided to sign in the Mexican League. I couldn't find any details as to why.
  3. Not on days he pitches. If you elect to start the game without a DH, you forfeit it for the entire game.
  4. More noise on Cashner in the rumor mill today. https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2020/01/orioles-have-interest-in-andrew-cashner.html
  5. His stat sheet says he has a 5 WHIP and a 19.2 FIP. Sounds like he'll fit right in.
  6. The way that he broke is really difficult to come back from and regain the arm strength and velocity. He'll probably have to convert to one of those soft-tossing Moyer-esque ultra-control guys to have success now. But who knows? Maybe he can do it.
  7. As a player, it has got to be fantastic to have the KBO (aka AA 1/2) and the NPB (which is more like AAAA, I suppose?) as options for when you can't quite hack it in the MLB any longer, but aren't yet ready to retire.
  8. There's guy on this list whose last name is actually Stankiewicz. How could we not sign him?
  9. There's that, but in an ideal world, there'd have been no need for framing in the first place.
  10. No, I don't. I enjoy watching baseball live, and sure, I enjoy watching the Orioles winning. But whether I go to two games in a year, or twenty... if my team is losing in a far-below-500 season, I don't care about them winning one or two extra games that I attend, if that will do anything to delay their return to winning baseball. It doesn't matter if I'm in the stands or following at home... the goal is the same.
  11. No... but I lived in Tennessee for a long time. Just moved back to Maryland a couple of years ago.
