  1. I'm firmly against an automated zone. #1 reason being that catcher presentation/framing is an integral part of what makes a good catcher. Some catchers have made a living off of that skill.
  2. Not sure if it’s been announced, but G Rod will start Wednesday.
  3. Yea I think Akron has the better team at this point but anything can happen in a 5 game series. Especially with Bowie hosting the first two. Also I believe they match up better with Akron than they do Somerset.
  4. Oops meant to respond to wildcard.
  5. Bowie may be covered in the outfield between Welk (who has been playing some LF), Watson, Rizer, and Fontana. Oh and Vavra who has been playing 2nd since his return but can play OF as well.
  6. He’s going to Norfolk.
  7. Yes third. If they cut it off you get in a run down, get the trail runner to second and we got a run. These are the little things that we are lacking as a club. Granted we are lacking a lot of big things as well 😛
  8. Man I will never forget that summer of ‘13, even though the team wasn’t as good as ‘12 or ‘14. Thanks for the memories Chris.
  9. His change is a splitter and yea it’s a gross combo with the 100mph fastball lol
  10. Interestingly enough I just looked at the place where I first found this out and Towers’ season isn’t even listed anymore. Was 140 innings not enough to qualify? https://www.baseball-reference.com/teams/BAL/leaders_pitch_season.shtml
  11. Fun fact: Josh Towers has the best single season BB/9 mark in Orioles history. He walked 16 guys in 140.1 innings in his 2001 rookie season for a BB/9 mark of 1.0.
  12. You hit me with a “everybody knew that” when I just provided more context to your original reply but ok sir you got it
  13. You’re the only one who knew he has a high walk rate then? Seemed more like you’re writing him off without the full context of how he’s performed.
  14. You forgot to mention that he punches out 17 per 9 and gave up 2 whole hits in those 13.1 innings. Im not crowning him yet I’m just saying he has shown dominant stuff and nobody is talking about him. I’ve seen every outing up close. He’s impressive.
  15. The stadium gun there is terrible. Had Grayson at 103 lmao Also will mix in a 55 here and there.
  16. Going to triple A with Adley
  17. Best kept secret in our org at the moment in my opinion…
  18. No kidding lol. At least Cobb is hangin tough.
  19. Guys I decided to try gambling on the O’s tonight so let’s pull this one out. Only $25 nothing serious but I was still screaming at the tv when Flores didn’t send the runner in the 2nd lol.
  20. Probably right to hold him but I think we would have had a very interesting play at the plate if Williams went home there.
