  1. Good info here. I wasn't aware JJ was hit around again yesterday...yikes: http://touch.baltimoresun.com/#section/-1/gallery/p2p-79808862/ Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. This is contingent on the Orioles exercising his option which, despite the tweet's author's optimism, is far from a sure thing.
  3. Listen, I dont know Dan Le batard well. Hes a columnist for the Miami Herald (and usually a very good one) and he has a show on ESPN, and perhaps I am reacting to something I just heard about but didnt see. Apparently, though, Lebetard made a comment today somewhere about Jim Palmer criticising Manny Machado last week for not running out a ball on the field. He said "He needs to play the game the right way". PERIOD. Le batard apparently went somewhere(either his show, column or social media ) and implied that what Palmer was REALLY saying was that Manny needed to play the game "the white way". Palmer NEVER SAID THAT. This is so grossly unfair and irresponsible and hateful I cant even believe a professional like Le batard would say that even in private conversation let alone a public forum of any kind. Ive been ripped by Le batard myself(the OJ controversy last week) and Im fair game because the issue was in the media and there was room for criticism. But Palmer? Why should he have to address something so incredible unfair, unprofessional, and especially something HE DIDNT SAY.The inference is disgusting. To imply racism for the want of social media attention, clicks or whatever you want to call it, is the shallowest, most cowardly and unprofessional kind of innuendo of all. Jim Palmer isnt just the best baseball analyst in the business and probably among the most honest, he's also a friend of mine for 45 years. Im personally offended for him and his family and anyone who knows him. Shame on Le betard and this new era of "calling it as you see it"...EVEN IF YOU DIDNT SAY IT. A new low in media baiting.
  4. For Baysox manager Gary Kendall, the key to Orioles prospect Corban Joseph's future may be his ability to play multiple infield positions effectively. https://www.pressboxonline.com/2016/05/19/bowie-baysox-gary-kendall-says-orioles-prospect-corban-joseph-could-be-ryan-flaherty-type-player
  5. Orioles adding to their outfield depth today with the signing of former Blue Jays outfielder Michael Saunders. Yes, it was just two years ago that he made the all-star team. https://www.google.com/amp/www.baltimoresun.com/sports/orioles/bs-sp-orioles-saunders-20180402-story,amp.html
  6. I was responding to a post in another thread and it got me thinking. With the uncertainty surrounding Machado, the poor pitching, and having to play in arguably the toughest division in MLB how do most free agents view the Orioles as a landing spot? I have them ranked as the 6th worst destination spot for free agents. Thoughts? Most Unappealing Teams to Free Agents 1) Miami - The team is a mess and even the rostered players don't want to stay. 2) Cincinnati - A perpetually bad team with very little hope of improving anytime soon. 3) Detroit - A team rebuilding in a semi unappealing City. 4) Oakland - The luster of money ball has long worn off. 5) Tampa - Just traded the face of their franchise and play in the worst stadium in the league. 6) Baltimore - A team poised to lose their marquee player with terrible pitching and a meddling owner. Beautiful ball park, but the city has gotten a bad national rep for crime in recent years. 7) Chicago (White Sox) - Lots of young talent, but a team that will always be Chicago's redheaded step child. 8) San Diego - A team with less young talent than the White Sox, but you can't discount the weather and the city (one of the best). 9) Philadelphia - Terrible record last season, but they have young talent and seem to be heading int the right direction. 10) Pittsburgh - A solid franchise, but their in the midst of a slow rebuild.
  7. The draft is one week from today. Here's the latest from the mock drafts. I'll update this thread with the final mock drafts next Monday.

  8. I'd be a fan of this pick. One of the better players available at #21 and fills a need. 21. Orioles Some scouts compare North Carolina shortstop Logan Warmoth to current Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy, and the two have overall similar profiles. If the Orioles don’t zig and go prep outfielder as some clubs believe, Warmoth makes total sense as a high-floor college performer. Pick: Logan Warmoth, ss, North Carolina | Read more at http://www.baseballamerica.com/draft/mock-mlb-draft-3-0-major-league-baseball-draft/#kxWTZc7ER1HirvRC.99

  10. Just wanted to point out that Jomar Reyes is quietly batting .520 (13-for-24) through his first six games. Yea I know. Small sample size and all that jazz. Still, an encouraging start from one of the more disappointing prospects from the 2016 season. Lets hope he's ready to break out and that this isn't a flash in the pan.
  11. The HOTSHEET is back. Check out who was hot (and not) among the Orioles Hangout top 30 prospects for the month of April. Baysox left-hander John Means earns the top spot on the list after pitching to a 1.40 ERA over his first five starts: http://www.orioleshangout.com/2017/05/01/orioles-minor-league-prospect-hotsheet-april-edition/

  15. Here's a link to a recent scouting report filed on Trey Mancini by Bernie Pleskoff of FanRag sports. I'm highly intrigued with his report on Mancini's defense in right field. He also grades out Mancini as a 50 and thinks he could develop into an everyday player eventually. https://www.fanragsports.com/mlb/orioles/pleskoff-scouting-report-trey-mancini/
  16. The Orioles have added another high school righthander to the draft class Perfect Game has him listed at 6'2", 180 pounds. He is committed to baseball powerhouse, Cal State Fullerton
  17. By Charlie Wilmoth | December 7, 2016 at 5:26pm CDT There's some traction here - Heyman seems to be all over this like a cheap suit. The fit is obvious, and the Orioles may actually have something to trade for his guy, who is not expected to bring the Royals that big a return. So here are the questions: 1) Who do you think the Royals are asking for, and 2) Who would you trade for Dyson, if you were to make an offer?
  18. Despite being one of the Orioles' first spring cuts, Chance Sisco is committed to becoming a major league-caliber catcher rather than moving to a different position. https://www.pressboxonline.com/2016/03/14/orioles-chance-sisco-confident-he-can-stick-at-catcher
  19. 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.
  20. ESPN's Tim Kurkjian says the Orioles' bullpen, power hitting and defense might be enough to reach the postseason, despite their shaky starting pitching: https://www.pressboxonline.com/2016/06/21/tim-kurkjian-orioles-may-be-a-little-short-on-people-to-deal
  21. I love Orioles and KBO(Korea Baseball is quite fun.. haha) Kim Jae-hwan is a player in KBO. He is now at 19 homers and He is over .300 batting average. He is so good. but He is diagnosed with positive steroids (No anabolic) 5 years ago. He also received disciplinary action. but people say "He is doing well now by virtue of 5 years ago of drugs" Even though He ate steroids, Disparaging His record is right?
  22. Henry Urrutia says he was angry when the Orioles sent him to Double-A Bowie, but the move may have served as a wakeup call for the 29-year-old outfielder. https://www.pressboxonline.com/2016/06/14/baltimore-orioles-prospect-henry-urrutia-i-know-i-can-play-in-the-big-leagues
  23. MLB.com draft expert Jim Callis says the Orioles' pitcher-heavy strategy in the 2016 MLB Draft may have just been a question of best player available. https://www.pressboxonline.com/2016/06/14/mlbcoms-jim-callis-on-orioles-draft-they-got-three-good-arms
