  1. The O's want out of Frederick because Elias and Co. can't fit their data gathering operation into the stadium. Elias and Mejdal toured it when they arrived and they want out. Fredericksburg would be moved to AA if Frederick is picked up by the Nats. Nats don't do the data gathering that we do, so while this is going to sting, we might see Aberdeen or DelMarva move up the chain.
  2. Mainly rookie leagues like the app league will be contracted. Other things for teams A ball and up will be concerned with facilities and the market they're in. Hagerstown is a prime example. Stadium sucks, it's old, no one wants to reinvest in it and the market isn't that lucrative.
  3. That mainly comes from MiLB owners. Frederick is tentatively going to be sold, but the buyer is waiting on whether or not they'll be in affiliated baseball. Area around Harry Grove and the stadium itself were going to get I believe a $30 million reinvestment to spruce the area around it to make it more of a fun area with bars and a concert hall. Can't remember the number off the top of my head. Also, everyone watch out for December 2nd. MiLB will release who is staying affliated, whose moving around, etc.
  4. Colorado had Ian Desmond at the time and payroll wise were maxed out. I can see why that didn't happen. Plus they have to play in SF and SD, two non friendly pitchers parks.
  5. It's basic economic principle. How can I get the most utility and value from the money I spend? What is the most effective way of doing that?
  6. They don't have to pay him, so I'd venture a guess and say no. Will they reinvest it into the team is the bigger question
  7. Trade to Colorado makes sense. All depends on the price tag.
  8. If what I"ve been hearing is true from various sources, the Nats might also being heading to Frederick if the Keys aren't contracted.
  9. We thought our pick was weird. Laughing at Boston's pick.
  10. https://www.camdenchat.com/2020/6/9/21284266/mlb-draft-2020-orioles-preview-heston-kjerstad
  11. Yusniel Diaz looks really good right now.
  12. I think they hold Mountcastle down in Norfolk for time reasons. Hays has a better defensive profile compared to Mountcastle's lack there of. I think that's the reasoning that's being applied.
  13. I think if he comes back and does well, everyone here will be happy because that helps the orioles. He looks different this year, it's like he went into a time machine can 2015 Chrush came back. His approach is better than in years past. Last two years he looked awful at the plate during ST. He thinned out too. So we'll see. I wish we had statcast data, that way we could quantify what we're seeing because the naked eye can tell you only so much.
  14. I wish we had statcast data on this. We've seen his launch angle decrease over time as well. Was 17.2 in 2015 and has gone down, with 14.2 being his average angle in 2019
  15. I've noticed that his swing path looks different too. Less long and outside and more inside the zone. His bat speed looks quicker like it used to as well
  16. Doesn't help the Bob Nutting hasn't done anything to help that and management under Neil Huntington and Clint Hurdle were the poor man's version of Showalter and DD with an owner who couldn't be bothered to spend more money on players, latin america or anything.
  17. Look at his release point, it’s inconsistent due to his arm action and how he yanks the ball sometimes. That’s not a bad thing because the stuff plays up, but unless he gets that straightened out with a consistent release point, he’ll be inconsistent like we saw in Frederick
  18. For Hall it’s his release point and arm action. If that becomes more consistent, he should be fine
