  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. For Hall it’s his release point and arm action. If that becomes more consistent, he should be fine
  4. NICE! I'll keep it with the metal theme
  5. It makes my parents feel old every time I ask them about it.
  6. https://www.mlb.com/news/prospects-missed-top-100-list?t=mlb-pipeline-coverage So Hays was our guy who barely missed the top 100. Makes sense considering the injury history, but I still have a ton of hope for him on the ML level
  7. MLB Pipeline has Rutschman, Rodriguez, Hall and Mountcastle in their top 100. Steps in the right direction
  8. He also wouldn't have been the face of MLB for almost 20 years.
  9. I'll have to check into that. I claim myself on everything deduction wise.
  10. I make under 30K, so I get all the money i put in sans SS back. I normally wait because the community college by my house offers a free tax program so I can file my taxes and get my refund without having to pay for anything. I'll be checking to see if ODU has something similar to that, but if I can get all the $ I can back, then that's more beneficial in the long run rather than throwing 20-30 dollars to H&R Block.
  11. I think where he is now, he's worth a 2nd or 3rd round pick. He's that interesting with the bat.
  12. I want the O's to try and get Blaze Jordan this draft.
  13. I'm getting my tax returns and putting like 1/4th of it into the market, 1/4th into cryptocurrencies, rest i'm putting in my savings account. Depending on returns from the market returns, might start my retirement account now with a ROTH.
  14. I took 2 semesters of astronomy as my science. I learned logic moreso through arguing points in my major and why different things effect the market, like regulation, inflation, etc. Baseball has always been a numbers game, it's why Earl Weaver pushed for depth and played matchups all the time
  15. And that number will rise for us. Pretty stoked about that.
  16. Did you post that comment on the fangraphs article too? Reddit is a lynch mob sometimes, which is dumb.
  17. They shouldn't, but like most stats sites, they're tools. I like the top 100 in terms of draft, gives us an idea along with Fangraphs who the orioles might draft and whose in the wheelhouse.
  18. So far, only the top 10 RHP's according to pipeline have been released, with most of the lists being out by mid february. Grayson Rodriguez is at number 10 right now on the top 10 RHP's list, behind Casey Mize (Detroit), Nate Pearson (Jays), Forrest Whitley (Astros), Michael Kopech (White sox), Sixto Sanchez (Marlins), Dustin May (Dodgers), Matt Manning (tigers), Luis Patino (Padres) and Spencer Howard (Phillies). Grayson grades out overall as a 55, but that could potentially go up as he advances through the minors. I like pipeline as it doesn't hurt to have different opinions on prospects and the presentation and ease of use of the website helps out too. http://m.mlb.com/prospects/2020/?list=rhp
  19. Elias was running the minors and Mejdal was running the numbers department. Elias was quoted saying that he had no involvement early on in the investigation, meaning he probably told the investigation the same thing. I see no reason to not believe him here.
  20. Reddit is ok. All depends on the subreddit. Just avoid anything political, gaming or anything related to social issues and you'll be fine. Twitter is the place where mutants and opinions go to die.
  21. It will be interesting to see if it does escalate. I don't think it will happen either, but it could be interesting to see if any of them will try and drag down other teams with them. Fiers I think won't have an issue because it would be insanely obvious as to why he's not getting a contract. He'd get $ in suing the league, something Kapernick did and got a ton of compensation for. I'm not saying it's to excuse their behavior. I'm saying is that if they can prove other teams were cheating as well, does MLB pivot and go after other clubs for sign stealing?
  22. The astros put up 8 runs on them each, I think. Might not be death, but that's pretty close.
