  1. Was thinking the same thing. Even BA has him listed at 6’10”.
  2. Posted this in another thread, is this guy really 6’10”? He sure didn’t look it in the picture. Misprint maybe
  3. Off topic, is the Alvarez kid really 6’10”? Or is this a typo?
  4. Well he definitely hits it far. Can’t find much game video from him. Intriguing
  5. Actually more than a few. And my daughter just graduated and she turns 19 on the 19th. She wasn’t held back. Was validictorian. I graduated at 17 and was BY FAR the youngest of the class. I guess I’m just not understanding how a few months could make so much of a difference.
  6. I’m still trying to figure why people think he was held back. He’s still 18. Am I the only one here that graduated with a bunch of 18 year olds? I’d be willing to bet that most people when graduating are 18. Calm down guys, he’s really not that old.
  7. I am so sick of hearing about Chris Davis and how bad he sucks. However, i was thinking...and i apologize if this has already been brought up in one of the 12 Chris Davis sucks threads. But, is there anything in his contract that says that he can't be demoted. Or what happens if they DFA him. Obviously no one would pick him up. What if they were to do so, and he just said Nope! Don't want to do that, and decided to retire? Would we then be required to pay the rest of the contract? I'd give him 75 at bats in AAA, and if he is under 250, send him to AA. Another 75 at bats, under 250, A. Maybe that's not the message the Orioles want to send. Just spit balling here
  8. How about Haley Alvarez? Anyone ever heard of her?
  9. I gotta be honest, I’m going to the game tomorrow in Texas, and I can’t wait to watch this guy. I hope he mashes.
  10. Just FYI, Julio Pablo Martinez, which was the last big Cuba defector, actually defected in November of 17, and wasn’t declared eligible until March of 18. That’s 4 months for the mathematically challenged. We are coming up on 3 month mark for the Mesa brothers on when they defected. So we probably have another month or so before anything actually happens. No expert here. Just a few google searches
  11. This process does not seem like I has ever been a quick one. A quick google search of names like, Luis Robert, Yoan Moncada, Julio Pablo Martinez, and it looks like they all took between 3-5 months from the time they defected until the time they were declared a free agent. He defected in early May, so it has been about 2 and a half months. Could certainly happen within the next few weeks if it happens on the quicker side of history.
  12. Is it possible he was trying to get an indication of what team or teams he would waive those 10-5 rights to?
  13. Does anyone know if Victor Víctor ever played ball with Diaz in Cuba. They’re around the same age. Might help with the lack of relationship our organization has had. Although I did read something a few weeks ago that mentioned the orioles and victor victor or victor jr (brothers) in the same sentence. I’ll see if I can find it
  14. Sorry if this has been posted before. But since it has been a slow day with manny news, do any of you think that with sons seeming to be running things more and more, are there any chances that we will actually use some of the international pool this year? If the period hasn’t closed already. I’m curious to see if they may be waiting for MLB to post Víctor Mesa. It seems most if not all of the teams that had more pool money have spent most of theirs, leaving us with the most pool money. I could be wrong.

    Thank you for the kind words gentleman. I have been reading this forum for years. Seems to be the most knowledgable. And like many of you, I'm a die hard Orioles fan. Unfortunately, I was born a few hours after our last World Series. So I'm hoping this is our year. Interested for the season and to see what future brings
