  1. He could sign in St. Louis and be one of the youngest pitchers in their rotation...
  2. I'm interested whether you guys think the O's should try to resign Matt Harvey? The 32-year old won't cost much and has looked like a different pitcher in the second half: 5 starts, 1.65 ERA, 17Ks/6BB, 0.988 WHIP Also, for the record, I agree with much of what has already been said about our SP prospects in this thread. I'd add that I think Bruce Zimmerman could legitimately be a #4-#5 starter on our next winning team.
  3. Real happy to watch Mountcastle heat up. I was starting to feel a bit pessimistic about him when the OPS dropped to the .720's and I saw a few shaky defensive plays. Hope he can be a middle of the order bat for us going forward. (On a side note, I also like Urias batting second)
  4. He's got some good stuff. His curveball was making guys look bad last night. He's just not going to be a guy you can get 6-7 innings out of. I could definitely see him being a long reliever or opener on a good team. He's not a free agent till 2025.
  5. Ryan Mountcastle: -1.1 dWAR in 2021 according to Baseball Reference
  6. Pretty tired of Akin, to be honest. He's been the most dissapointing Oriole this season, in my book.
  7. Yea Youtube has been airing one MLB game a week. I'm excited for tonight's game. Means returns, the first all-woman broadcast team to call a game in MLB history, the O's going for a fourth win in a row... It feels like an important game, even if its not.
  8. I mean, Zimmerman has easily been our second best starter (with at least 5 starts) this season. 4.83 ERA, 8 SO9
  9. Baby Face Watkins painting those corners...
  10. Bumping this thread to say, I think Urias is underrated. The 27-year old now has the: 2nd best OPS on the team: .789 2nd best OBP on the team: .352 (love to see that) Baseball Reference rates him as a plus defender and already has him at 1.0 WAR through 39 games. Still a relatively short sample size (110 AB), but seems like he deserves a bit more credit and consideration going forward...
  11. I don't know enough about these players to vote, but it seems odd that 4 of our top 5 picks were outfielders... Seems like pitching and middle infield are far more pressing needs for this organization.
  12. As others have already mentioned, Keegan Akin and Dean Kremer have been major disapointments. I feel like Akin's best start this year was the one he missed because he injured himself making breakfast... I think Bruce Zimmerman deserves some modest credit for looking like an actual #4-#5 starter. I think he could stick around the back end of this rotation for a few years. With the other setbacks/regressions/injuries from players like Kjerstad, Lowther, Diaz, Mountcastle, Santander, H. Harvey... It feels like the hopes of this rebuild are resting more and more on Aldey/Grayson/DL all b
  13. This is what I'm thinking too. If they get a great offer, take it. If not, give him the JJ Hardy deal (3 years, 39-40 million or so) and plug him in as team captain and a middle of the order bat for the playoff years. I know a lot of people here want him traded, but I think that would be a good extension. It wouldn't break the bank, you wouldn't be paying him past age 33, he's a fan favorite, and, like Hardy, he would offer a lot of intangible benefits as a mentor to the younger guys.
  14. Matt Harvey's ERA against the Mets this season- 17.18 Matt Harvey's ERA against everyone else- 5.89
  15. Why not try Mountcastle out at third? Franco has a .592 OPS and is rating as one of the worst defensive thirdbasemen in the league. Hays is coming back and Stewart is heating up.
