  1. Happy to see that confirmed. The organization must have decided they would prefer to see him in left, if he can handle it.
  2. I think the hint might come from the fact he played most of those games in left in August - or at least it seemed that way.
  3. I can understand that, but a month of baseball there should give the organization an idea of if he can play there. He was playing first base when I saw Norfolk early and he seemed at least average there.
  4. Are there no scouting reports on Mountcastle in left late in the season? To answer the question, I hope/expect Hays to play center and Mountcastle to play left (at least most of the season). I don't expect much from Stewart, but I never mind to be wrong if it benefits the Orioles.
  5. Best non-pitcher then... I hope Means can continue to dominate. I'd be happy if he can be.a No. 3-4 type for the next five years or more.
  6. Then extend him when it's time. I don't think he will cost as much as Manny. I'd like to see Mountcastle in left, Mancini at first and Nunez at DH with Stewart in Norfolk or somewhere else.
  7. I hate the idea of trading our best player and I'm not a fan of Stewart. I'd much rather see Mountcastle in left and Mancini at first and let Stewart fight for the DH job.
  8. So, is Hays considered a rookie in 2020? How could he lose eligibility after the season ends?
  9. To me, it was. I was a big Arrieta fan. He was one of the best in the International League in 2010, won 10 games for the Orioles in 2011 and was gone less the two years later.
  10. I saw Arrieta pitch in Myrtle Beach and he was electric. It seems he was one of the top pitchers at every level - can't believe we let him go so fast.
  11. I haven't read much about his MLB potential, I admit. It seems he had some nice minor league seasons as a lefty reliever, especially at Frederick two years ago, so I have had hope he could eventually help.
  12. I agree with those five. I also like Fenter and Erwin.
  13. Bundy, Means, Cobb, Wojo and Akin Hoping Lowther and Baumann make it by September
  14. Didn't I see Bundy clocked at 93 a few times against Toronto earlier in the week? Any chance he can get back to 95-96 with off-season work?
  15. Happy to see Tanner Scott have a good inning. I think he breaks through next season and develops the consistency he's lacked in the past.
  16. I sure hope Mancini has earned a chance to play first base every day in 2020. Davis can move to the outfield on occasion if he stays.
  17. And bringing Hays up almost didn't happen if I remember right. He's had a chance to establish himself as our center fielder for next year and is much better defensively than I expected. I still wish we had Mountcastle in left to get a head start on next year as well.
  18. I think the score stands now. I remember a game in the 70s when someone scored a couple of runs in the top of inning, then it started raining and was rained out and the runs were taken off the board to give the Orioles a win.
  19. Has anyone actually said outfield defense isn't important? Has anyone provided any reports that said Mountcastle can't be an average left fielder? I'd like a great defensive center fielder. I'm hoping Mountcastle can be average and maybe grow into a pretty good left fielder. Didn't he play shortstop in high school? Does anyone say he's not athletic enough to play there eventually? I'd like to see him in Baltimore working with major league instructors on learning the position.
  20. Mountcastle in left (at least by May, even though I agree they should start him there on opening day) Hays in center (and hope he can stay healthy) Santander in right (with Diaz challenging in another year or Hays eventually moving there if McKenna or some other prospect can take the job in center) Mancini at first base
  21. I believe he's at least earned a shot. It appears to me he has the highest ceiling of our outfielders.
  22. There is quite a bit of distance between elite level and Mancini. It's my hope he can be average. I don't know though and I don't know if anyone else in this debate does either.
  23. Have you seen something that says he can't play left field?
  24. Not sure why an Orioles' fan would be so negative with a promising player like Mountcastle. My only complaint was that Mountcastle didn't play left every day. I'd also like to see him in Baltimore now to get a month of work. I can see Rutschman being delayed a few weeks if he's ready in 2021, but not Mountcastle at this point.
