  1. Here is there updated list: https://blogs.fangraphs.com/top-45-prospects-baltimore-orioles/ 45 players listed, maybe puts the Birds a tick ahead of the Yankees due to AR and Rodriguez. Though NY has a lot of 50s.
  2. He is coming back from TJ surgery, I believe

    Play Ball

    I’m actually having a hard time remembering that.
  4. If the Orioles are even concerned with Ryan Mountcastle, I am happy.

  6. I am excited when I see Valaika’s name in the lineup but not Davis. Does that count?
  7. 1.5 WAR though which is the same as Hays and Mountcastle.

Arm utility is the assessment of whether or not your arm can make the plays needed in the infield. They hold him up as the perfect example of someone whose arm is passable in the outfield, but can't get the job done making all of the unique throws required in the infield.
  12. The hotel behind left field now blocks what was once a nice view of the skyline
