    You can hope all you want, but that doesn't make any sense. Bundy isn't an upgrade over Davies. Also, I seriously doubt we get a prospect we've heard of for Bundy. 

    Brewers system is weak, which means either you get a quantity deal or an overpayment. Eduardo Garica and Aaron Ashby come to mind as guys who could headline a deal coming our way if we take the former, but the latter would be just Brice Turang or just Zach Brown

    Agreed, I doubt Elias trades Bundy just to get some prospects. Elias knows Bundy has value as a pitcher who will be on the mound every 5 days and besides Means there really aren't any other established starters for 2020.  I know Cobb is around, but he needs to stay healthy for more than 5 minutes. 

    Exactly. Does keeping him outweight being without him?

    That's why I think Bundy might generate enough of a return that Elias will trade him. I understand it's for the best, but it would suck to see Bundy go. 

    It depends on the return. If they can get a good return, then go for it. If not, keeping him doesn't hurt. Like we could deal him at the deadline if he puts up his 2nd half numbers. 

  4. Shot a jameson to everyone here. Thanks for making my life that much better and giving me a direction to go in life and helping me go deeper into a passion that I love to death.

    How about a "letter", signed by all participants here, directed to the appropriate executive in the O's organization (with copies to Mike Elias and any other relevant high-level decision-maker) detailing the rationale for the Orioles organization recognition and support of the Orioles Hangout?

    I'm confident that there is sufficient talent among the readers and posters of OH to formulate a successful appeal. 

    I think you're onto something here

  6. I completely understand your choice to shutter the site if you want. It's your life, and who am I to tell you how to live it? One thing I have to thank you for is giving me the opportunity to learn more about the game I love. I've learned so much from you, guys like corn and Luke, and this site has even inspired me to go for a career in scouting and player development. I would have never known I would have wanted to in terms of prospects, grading tools, etc that I do now without this website. I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for that, Tony.

    Does it matter being around midfield?  Are corner seats okay?  All the college games I've been to we've been seated midfield, but obviously when the game's on the opposite side of the field you might need binoculars.  Price difference is pretty big for midfield vs corner.

    If it’s the LA Coliseum, just don’t be around the press boxes and you’ll be fine view wise. As for a game at M&T Bank, it doesn’t matter. Sight lines are amazing at the stadium no matter where you are

  8. I picked MVP mainly because Greg Roman is a great offensive coordinator and the whole team was built around his skill set. Bringing in Mark Ingram only raised that ceiling. Plus you have Hollywood brown and an offensive line that grew a little more this year.

    And it wasn't even full. Still a lot of empty seats, which I'm sure will all be full come playoff time. I think the loudest I saw on the screen was 101.9DB, but who knows how accurate that is.

    It was around 103 DB, and the stadium was almost 95% full. Like there were a few empty seats, but you had to sit and try and find them.

    The Cowboys, Chiefs, and Bills games are in New England, which makes a big difference.  Although Buffalo is 3-31 against Brady, so they can’t beat him no matter where the game is played.  And while the Houston game is on the road, they are 1-9 against Brady since the Texans became a franchise.  He may not be the same Brady, but these teams forget how to play football every time they see the Patriots jerseys.

    Cheifs will most likely be the game to give New England trouble. Bills might if their offense shows up, Texans O line has to show up and their defense needs to play up to its ability. Dallas is so insanely inconsistent that it doesn't matter. That's a W for brady and Co.

    Trackman is a radar system that is used mostly at stadiums (because unlike Rapsodo (which does a similar thing) it’s not easily portable. Trackman makes up half of Statcast, capturing all ball movement combined with cameras Chyron Hego cameras that capture player movement.

    Gotcha. Thanks for the info, Luke. You're the best.

    It’s Edgertronic cameras and either Trackman, Yakkertech, or Rapsodo (the most common in private facilities) pitch tracking.

    The issue with Rom is he seems to have limited shoulder range of motion and that’s what’s limiting the velocity because he doesn’t get a lot of separation at footstrike. That’s just my outside observation so maybe he’s physically able to get more separation and he just needs to be cued into it.

    Oh, I thought that Trackman was the camera that came with pitch tracking software that helped calculate everything. My mistake.

    He has a fairly mature body so you typically don't see a ton more velocity from these guys. Saying that, with all the technology that helps maximize guy's deliveries now and Rom's willingness to learn, I would not be a surprised if he ends up throwing a little harder.

    Considering all the baseball schools opening up around the country now that are using Trackman cameras, I think seeing an uptick if the Orioles decide to send him to one of these schools wouldn't surprise me. Read an article a while ago about how now Rays prospect Michael Plassmeyer used one of these schools in college to get better command and better velocity on his pitches, and the results got better every year in college. Something like that for Rom would be massive IMO

    Mason Rudolph is terrible, the Steelers won't beat all the bad teams they have left.

    I wouldn’t say he’s bad. He’s competently lead the offense and spread the ball unlike Big Ben. Their defense has been anchored with that front 7 and the secondary is basically Minkah Fitzpatrick using cheat codes in madden. They’re not the Same team we faced earlier in October

    I'd say this pretty much says it all. I will say this, the Bengals coach is an idiot. They were going for it on 4th down and giving the Ravens short field.

    I think the bengals are going looking for a new coach this offseason. This hire has been horrendous. Amazing win in cincy for us though. Can’t wait for next week in Houston.
