If you want a left handed starter in the rotation you don't sign Gallardo.

Is he suggesting one of the four right handed pitchers from last year won't be in the rotation?

Regarding Norfolk, I'm taking that as, don't be worried about Walker not hitting all that great in that park, he's better than his numbers say.

If Norfolk is such a terrible park to hit in, and the Orioles know this, why not move the fences in?

Actually, Dan said they did, but it didn't help because of the wind blowing in off the water all the time.

That's a really neat park. If you haven't been, take a long weekend.

My wife and I spent a weekend in Norfolk for a Tides homestand a few years back. Definitely a fun time. I highky recommend the boat ride on the Harbor and past the Naval Yard.

Thanks Dipper. It was a little colder when we went, but I will definitely check that out next time. A poor man's AT&T park.

I think he's saying the current construction of the rotation is not ideal, but that hopefully they will have a lefty arm at some point.

It is more than the distance. The winds blow in.

I saw this too late. Sorry for being redundant.

    • Well, the Orioles got off to a terrible start in what is hopefully Elias' final tankathon season. They owned the 28th pick in the 2022 MLB draft upon leaving Boston. However, they've now rallied up to the number four pick, just two games behind Colorado. The Elijah Green sweepstakes are under way!
    • Of course I knew him but I never watched him. I thought those cartoons were stupid, even as an 8-year old. Tom and Jerry too. But the Warner bros gang were brilliant.  i was very fond of Mighty Mouse, too. The artwork was stunning.
    • Dont hold you're breath. 
    • o   Young man, you're no Walter Johnson.   o
    • I think a fan with a certain bit of refinement should understand that prospect rankings are not definitive statements on the health of a player development system.  What the O's need to be able to do to win consistently at the ML level is find and develop players better than their peers.  Taking Rutchsman doesn't actually resolve that issue.  Whiffing on 1-2 doesn't resolve that issue.  Neither does losing 100 games a year.  That issue is resolved in improving the O's processes in finding and developing amateur talent.  So if you want to criticize Elias or the rebuild, criticize that.  The fact that the O's stink in 2021, or 2020, or 2023, was predestined several years before it happened. You hit the O's biggest organizational failure on the head: The failure to develop quality pitching.  I've said this before and I'll say it again: The reason so many highly ranked minor league arms fail here and go on to do better elsewhere in some cases is because pitching for the O's is the most difficult pitching environment in the big leagues, and I don't think it is close.  Based on who and where you pitch, this is easily the worst place to pitch in the major leagues, other than maybe Colorado. So if Elias doesn't solve that particular riddle, he is mostly likely to fail.  I don't think he's infallible.  It's very possible he does fail.  But I'm not going to get up in arms about the O's being shit 2 and a half years into what I takes twice that time to favorably construct.
    • Those high rankings were almost solely the result of picking in the top 5 AND some good trading by MacPhail- who actually had a ML asset or two when he arrived unlike Elias. It was not a testament to the Orioles ability to find and develop players though. Before we go down this road, I think I should clearly state we don't seem to disagree.  I said 3-5 years.  You presented the Mariners as an example of doing it in 3 years.  Even if I accept the premise that they did what you say, that fits into the window I provided.
