  1. Stewart needs to do it at the MLB be level, but I think he is capable of putting up an .800+ OPS season.
  2. This seems pretty optimistic for the most part. I think Stewart might do better than a .745 OPS.
  3. I just don’t see the value of Beckham even on a MiLB deal. The only position you can play him his in the outfield if you claim to care about infield defense. With the options the Orioles have in the outfield now, the younger players need to be given a chance. I suppose Beckham could also be a 1B/DH, but the Orioles have better options to turn to first.
  4. Yes claim him. I don’t see how Harper doesn’t make the 26 man roster out of spring training.
  5. I'm in favor of this if ownership won't allow Elias to release Davis. With 26 rosters spots your idea makes sense.
  6. I know, I liked the idea but quickly remembered the Earl Weaver rule.
  7. Can't do that one thanks to Earl. https://www.mlb.com/cut4/stories-behind-weirdly-specific-mlb-rules-c219761964 Rule 5.11(a)(2): The Designated Hitter named in the starting lineup must come to bat at least one time, unless the opposing club changes pitchers. It's only fitting that Earl Weaver would inspire his very own rule -- after all, he once thoroughly ripped up a rulebook in front of an umpire just to make a point. Sadly, though, the Earl Weaver Rule doesn't involve paper-shredding of any kind. It instead involves the DH, which was established in the American League in 1973 as Weaver was beginning his sixth season as manager of the Orioles. At the time, the new position came with just one stipulation: The designated hitter had to be selected prior to the game and included in the lineup cards presented to the home-plate umpire. Naturally, it didn't take long for Weaver to find himself a loophole. Rather than simply naming a DH in good faith, Weaver would pencil in a pitcherhe had no intention of using that day -- only to send up whichever hitter he actually wanted when that spot in the lineup came around. The move allowed Weaver to choose from his entire bench, picking the ideal batter depending on the game situation.
  8. I'm pretty sure Davis would be ok with that while collecting $23M per season. To shame Davis into retirement you would need to expose him by batting him leadoff or turn him into the Orioles opener.
  9. I was hoping to see news on a surprise retirement announcement after seeing this thread bumped up.
  10. I'm thinking the multiple sources on this are Beckham and his agent.
  11. I would take a strong look at Taijuan Walker if he is healthy enough to pitch in 2020.
  12. And that's why I'm happy Jeter didn't get unanimously voted into the HOF. Hearing all the Yankees fans whine about it amuses me, it's like the spoiled rich kid complaining because he got the wrong colored Porsche for his birthday. And Jeter's career WAR is virtually the same as Larry Walker's, and he had to wait nearly a decade to get elected.
  13. Ah yes, I wasn't thinking that far ahead.
