  1. As the Orioles work on building their pitching staff for the 2016 season, right-hander Tyler Wilson is trying not to get lost in the shuffle. http://www.pressboxonline.com/2015/12/26/tyler-wilson-hopes-to-be-part-of-orioles-2016-plans
  2. A lot of folks, including myself have penciled in Hyun Soo Kim when making out potential everyday lineups for the Orioles in 2016. Honestly, part of the reason I've put him in those lineups without seeing him play is mostly due to the fact of limited other options. However, there are some red flags that make me wonder whether Kim will end more of a 4th outfielder/DH more than an everyday guy. Sure, the 28-year old Kim comes over after posting gaudy .326/.438/.541/.979 slash line with a career best 28 home runs and 101 walks in 630 PAs. That seems great until you see that former Orioles farm hand Eric Thames, who put up a robust .252/.315/.356/.671 slash line at Norfolk in 2013, basically is Barry Bonds in Korea after slashing .381/.497/.790/1.288 with 47 home runs, 103 walks and 40 stolen bases. Honestly, if we are going off of stats, maybe the Orioles should have signed Thames to a minor league contract since he outperformed Kim and is only 14 moths older. The KBO has a wide mix of players, but most consider the talent level to be somewhere in the vicinity of High-A ball to AA. Nothing against Thames, but when he can suddenly put up Barry Bonds-esque numbers you definitely have to wonder about the talent level. The next concern is Kim's reported weight of 240 pounds when he signed. Not exactly known as a defensive whiz, Kim's reported weight in the KBO was around 210 so either it was under reported or he's eaten a lot of kimchee late. I've never seen the guy play and I know it's being reported that Brady Anderson is working with him this offseason, but a 6-2, 240 pound guy who plays LF in the KBO does not make me think he's going to be plus defender. I could be wrong, but it's a concern. Add in the fact that the Orioles signed him relatively cheaply (2ys/7mil) and you have to think there wasn't a ton of teams breaking down his door to come to America. I think his contract is worth a shot and his upside is that he could be a decent OBP guy, but at the same time, we might be getting ahead of ourselves if we start assuming he's the full-time left fielder.
  3. I finally found one good thing about interleague play. I'll get to hear Vin Scully doing an Orioles game.

  15. To me, the Jays are the best all around team in the AL East. They can really hit and they can outpitch the Orioles..particularly tonight with one of the best arms in Stroman, who at 5'8 may be the smallest pitcher in the major leagues...with the very best stuff.Im not very high on Mike Wright and if he doesn't pitch very well tonight, Tyler Wilson could be waiting in the wings...both tonight and for the rotation. Id be happy to win two of three at home, but it might be tough for this club to win even one in this series because of the matchups.Im pulling for a good series from our guys, but Im keeping my expectations low.
