  1. I, naturally, went to check out who the heck that was when I saw the clip....of course, it isn’t some young minor league pitcher, but a 30 year old! Still quite spry...
  2. No worries. I do agree with you that he doesn’t feel like he’ll be our pick, though I’m definitely intrigued by the guy. Either way, quite an opportunity for him tonight on the biggest stage....former presumptive 1-1 whose stock has taken a mild hit, he’s got the chance to silence some doubters. Obviously big league teams don’t make first round selections based on one game, but it will be interesting to see if he reenters the discussion as a top 3ish pick with a big night tonight. Or what happens if he doesn’t pitch well.
  3. Rocker didn’t pitch tonight. Maybe they’re holding him for game three
  4. So I figured it was worth it to start a thread on Zach Jarrett, who is playing CF most nights in Norfolk while OPSing north of 850. Former 28th round pick was old entering the system out of college (he’s 26 now), but maybe a guy who, had he not lost a year in 2020, would be considered a potential thing? Not sure if anyone who has seen him play has any strong opinions, or any thoughts on how he looks defensively in the outfield. Recognize I’m probably reaching here, but a guy with that OPS at a premium defensive position in AAA at least deserves a mention....maybe?
  5. Lots of loud outs or foul balls. I don’t think it’s a revelation to say that there are serious doubts about whether his stuff will play at the ML level, but I’m certainly rooting for him and you can’t count him out, of course.
  6. Agreed with the sentiment....I’ve been home on paternity leave this past month, so I’ve got time and bandwidth. Usually I’ll start watching the games in the evening, but after the first hour or so, things are so out of hand or so ugly that I’ll switch to NHL or NBA playoffs. Or I’ll cede the remote to my wife and suffer through whatever is on Bravo (which, incredibly, is often not as bad as the Orioles...) I very much want to watch and still generally enjoy it, it’s just really a tough sell when we’re getting our doors blown off or, as in the Cleveland series, the quality of play gets so ugly.
  7. Because the Orioles love free stuff...😑
  8. Exciting to see Mundy pop a bit, especially as an undrafted guy (albeit in only a five round draft), but I would like to see us not be too aggressive with his promotions. He just turned 23, so obviously he’s on the older side, but not egregiously so. He’s only had 116 professional ABs, and less than 50 in his two weeks at high-A. That’s just a healthy hot streak for some guys. I’d like to see him continue to excel at Aberdeen at least through July before moving him up to Bowie for the final month if he’s still taking. Let him continue to develop and his confidence grow.
  9. Not trying to be annoying, but I’ll just note that Elias said “several weeks” before he is able to start throwing again, which to me is different than missing a few weeks. Full quote from the MASN article below: ““There was some tendinitis, some inflammation, so we’ll pull him out of the rotation, let him rest for a couple of weeks and in several weeks start to build him back up and return to the Bowie rotation here in good time,” Elias said.” I know this is one of these situations where we’ll all hold our collective breath, and not trying to be overly pessimistic. Just want to manag
  10. I actually think Leyba may get the first crack at the 2B job in Baltimore. More gut feel than anything. That said, I agree with you that I’d like to see one of the two promoted and playing by the end of the month.
  11. Agree that’s it’s disheartening - and a bit surprising - to see him getting inconsistent work this year. Would like to give him a fair shake given past success. He starts tonight in Jacksonville, so hopefully A) he throws well and B) this is the beginning of some consistent starting chances for him. Would be interested in reviews from those who are able to watch.
  12. My wife and I went to Sunday's game with another couple and had a great time. A couple observations: - Bottom line up front is that I'd very much encourage folks to go. We've been relatively cautious during Covid, but really at no point felt cramped or uncomfortable. Certainly some of that is that now most of the folks I was with were fully vaccinated, but there's plenty of space in between seats and really not that many people. Even coming into the stadium and in concession lines, people were generally respectful of distance and it was no issue. I'm sure, anecdotally, there will always b
  13. Yes... I’m way more concerned about an ownership group that can build a winner. moderators: Edited to take away politics and attack other poster
  14. Echo the sentiments of many others that I love Gary Thorne, am thrilled he'll be back in at least some capacity, and hope that will continue next year. I don't mind Scott Garceau, but Gary is truly in another class of broadcaster.
