    Farewell OH

    Your prospect valuations were too good not to be paid for it. I think you'll serve the O's pretty well.
  2. I definitely thought he was too old to give a DH a 4 year deal, so I never saw this production coming. I cant imagine how he did it clean, but whatever, he bucked the odds, so good for him.
  3. As the replacement for Villar, this signing definitely gives me a shudder. I guess we're going for the all time loss record.
  4. I wouldnt be against it seeing how the team looks to be a basement dwellar once again. If Javier is the highest upside Rule 5, then you have to make that decision. Detroit picks ahead of us anyway.
  5. Roberts time with the Orioles had long passed since 2014. What makes me feel old is Mussina's last season being 2009. I can easily remember watching his starts on TV his rookie season.
  6. If it comes down to Arrieta, which it might, then im not sure Buck will be getting it.
  7. I hope Buck gets the Phillies job.
  8. Could be wrong here but wouldnt Duquette and Brady be the ones who should have implemented that? Maybe Buck was opposed and I missed it.
  9. I think he did up until he got fired. All those contracts he gave out after Boston won the WS?
  10. Well going by Roch's tweet, they are strongly considering opening '20 with Hays in CF...so Hays has that going for him. Mountcastle, I dunno if they've figured out what position he's going to play yet.
  11. Delay his service clock? Probably. He hasn't played much OF in Norfolk.
  12. thanks Agree. I respected his decision to stick it out on a bad team for his family's comfort.
  13. Does the NFL or NBA not give pensions and 401k's? If so, I dont really understand Jones comments.
  14. The future O's OF is probably Hays, Diaz and Mountcastle, with Santander or Stewart ready to step in if they underwhelm.
  15. Theres no rush to promote Toby Welk. He'll be in Delmarva soon enough next year. I am wondering if Rutschman starts out in Delmarva next season.
  16. 21st rd pick. Probably not seen as a high ceiling prospect.
  17. Stewart was promoted. GrayRod and Rom I think they are slow playing. Not sure about anyone else.
  18. .462 with 6 BB"s in his last 10 games. I would say he deserved a promotion. Its good to know Elias will move a player quickly if he's dominating.
  19. 28 SB's on pace for nearly 20 HR's, I think alot of teams would take that. He's having a great season and the O's would look foolish not to bring him back.
  20. We had Joey Rickard as our 4th OF when Yaz was traded, who also has better stats in AAA last year. I like Yaz but he never did anything in Norfolk that suggests this breakout was going to come. Yaz does look the part of a major leaguer, unlike say Stewart, who is also a much higher draft pick. Yaz' 14th round draft status meant he was always going to be behind the higher drafted corner OF's and rule 5 picks.
  21. High K rate, low walk rate since he moved to the bullpen.
  22. Has Akin been skipped over in prospect status by these 3? Akin very easily could be called up sometime next year.
