  1. No because Mancini's approach at the plate and plate discipline improved at every level as he advanced through the minors. In his last full season in the minors, Mancini actually had a respectable 9.5 BB%. I bet Mountcastle's walk to strikeout ratio would resemble rookie year Jonathan Schoop if he played an entire season next year in the majors.
  2. I'm looking at the stats for Javier and Newton and both of those guys put up a sub .300 OBP in low A-ball in last year. What am I missing?
  3. The Red Sox and Yankees are two big market teams who have heavily relied on free agent veteran pitching throughout the years. Also, left center field is absolutely enormous in Yankee Stadium. It's 400 feet from home plate. That makes it a lot easier for good left-handed pitchers to suppress homeruns. For example, Andy Pettite never allowed more than 21 HRs in a season for the Yankees. For comparison's sake, it's 364 feet to left center and 373 feet to right center in Camden Yards. That's a huge difference and really gives pitchers no room for error when they make a mistake.
  4. I look forward to 120 pitch outings from Shohei Ohtani a year after coming off Tommy John surgery.
  5. This is going to be another long extra inning game, isn''t it?
  6. I know people like to point out the positives about the Orioles this season but it's disappointing that there appears to be only four viable ML pitchers that pitched for the Orioles this season. Those pitchers are Means, Bundy, Wojo, and Hunter Harvey. Add in the struggles of the Norfolk pitchers and I have a hard time seeing this team being contenders before 2022. And that's assuming everything breaks right.
  7. What the hell was the Red Sox baserunner thinking? His butt should have been glued to first base with a three-run deficit. Getting picked off in that situation is inexcusable.
  8. The only criticism I have with Rajsich is his selection of position players in the early rounds. But he still was able to nab Mountcastle and Hays along with Christian Walker who's had a nice year in Arizona in the early rounds. The guy was a really good scouting director. I'm surprised Elias didn't bring him back.
  9. The Blue Jays are ranked second on that list and their current pitching is terrible too.
  10. Why would Maddon want to come here? And even if he was interested in the Orioles, I doubt he would be willing to undercut his former protege to get the job.
  11. At this point, the Orioles should release every reliever that appeared in an Orioles game this season except for Hunter Harvey. Just put a blowtorch on it and let everything burn. Get rid of them all.
  12. Not just Castro. Every arbitration eligible reliever on this team should be non-tendered next year.
  13. Man, this entire bullpen consists of nothing but gutless losers.
