  1. Framing matters if you have legitimate major league pitchers. We don't.
  2. IMO, Wright has never had the "right stuff" to be a consistent MLB pitcher.
  3. I know this article is from last year but somehow I just found it. I definitely have a different perspective on things now. He's struggling not only in terms of baseball but in life. He sounds like he's nearly broken. Like Tony said, I know a lot of you are saying "but he makes millions". And I was one of them. But after reading that article, I'm hoping he somehow turns things around. Go Chris. https://www.si.com/mlb/2018/09/24/chris-davis-baltimore-orioles
  4. Best Orioles news I've heard in years. Excellent hire.
  5. This is the most pathetic front office in all of sports. It's getting to the point that being a fan is downright painful.
  6. The real question is won't both teams be trying their best to lose? Both teams are probably hoping to get swept.
  7. Don't most pitchers always reach their potential after they leave the Orioles?
  8. I still think this "angst" over what we got for Gausman is a bit much. The guy never lived up to his potential here. He wasn't much more than a tease. Certainly not a true top of the roation guy. And we saved a lot in the deal by dumping O'day's inflated salary. Plus if the international money helps us net Mesa, it's a very good deal. I was a bit underwhelmed with the Schoop return but it's obvious he wasn't part of the rebuild plan.
  9. If we spend that international money and get some good returns, this might be an A. But honestly, only time will tell. So far, they've done better than expected IMO.
  10. I'm feeling good about what the Orioles did. Look folks, we weren't winning with Machado and Schoop and Gausman and Britton so why not get what you can for them? I think we did well. I'd like to see them keep DD but change the manager and coaching staff. I like the idea of us being players in the international market too. For the first time in a long time this organization feels like a bonifide, functional MLB outfit.
  11. People seem to act like Gausman was Cy Young. A 39-51 career record isn't good no matter how you slice it. Yes, he has skills but I think he also was a bit of a head case and never put it together here. I wish him well but we made the right move. And, if the international money helps you get Mesa, it's a very good B+ deal.
  12. Gausman has potential but overall he’s been mostly mediocre in his career. You weren’t gonna get Machado like returns. Dumping O'Day's contract and the 2.5 million in international money were part of the deal too. It wasn't just 4 "fringe" prospects. I think they did OK.
  13. Making the moves we needed to make. Feeling good about today's trades.
  14. I'd much rather watch a new group of baby birds at this point. I like what the O's are doing.
