Jeffrey Hammonds is 47 now.  Wow.  Wish I'd seen him play healthy. 

Glad I saw Harold Baines hit at all.

Last time I saw Jeffrey Hammonds play was the very end of his career, he finished as a part time player for the Nationals in their first year in DC.   Only had about 40 at bats or something like that.   He had 1 RBI, and it was at a game I was at...an RBI single in the bottom of the 9th to beat Milwaukee 1-0 at RFK Stadium.   The first walkoff win in Nationals histroy and the last RBI for Jeffrey Hammonds in the majors and the only run of the game.

Wondering what JJ Hardy is up to now.

Wondering how this season would have gone if we’d kept Hardy.

Hardy can’t hit, but with Beckham sporting a .581 OPS I tend to think we’d have done a bit better with Hardy overall.    Ah well, either way we would have stunk.

I love JJ, but I really dont think he was capable of playing a full season anymore with his back.

Harold is looking good still - bet he could be a good hitting instructor!

Palmer, Murray, and Brooks are all employees of the Orioles.

There are two living Orioles Hall of Famers left.

Will Frank and Cal also be hired as Orioles ambassadors?

Harold Baines always struck me as a smart dude.  I know he was a coach for the ChiSox for a little bit, not sure in what capacity but I wonder if he'd be a good hitting instructor.

I had beers with his wife in St. Michaels a few years ago.  Nice lady.

I dont think Frank's health issues will allow it.

I dont think Cal has any role in this team, with Angelos as owner.

Does Harold know about that? :) 

It was during WineFest.  I'm not a wine drinker, but for the price of the ticket, I was pounding every sample all day.  (little did I know you're supposed to swish it around and then spit it out.  Go figure.)  Anyway, by the time we got to the brewery there, I was sloshed and going on and on about what a big O's fan I am.  She was very polite, posed for a picture, and then moved on.  Not one of my best moments.

    • Yes — pretty sad.   
    • The one that stands out to me is that a guy primarily used in relief accumulated the most WAR among the pitchers.
    • Cumulative totals Record: 755-865 Runs scored: 7,034 Runs allowed: 7,774 Pythagorean record: 729-891 Most games played:  Adam Jones 1,362 Most plate appearances: Adam Jones, 5,808 Most hits: Adam Jones, 1,521 Most home runs: Chris Davis, 253 Highest WAR: Manny Machado, 31.0. Most innings: Chris Tillman, 1080 Most starts: Chris Tillman, 193 Most wins: Chris Tillman, 72 Most appearances: Darren O’Day, 391 Most saves: Zach Britton, 139 Highest pitcher WAR: Zach Britton, 13.7  
    • Juvier had a 6-89 stretch in the equivalent league as Delmarva.  Still I wouldn’t be against it.  Here’s some other SS available Reds: Alfredo Rodriguez, SS (No. 18) - The Reds gave Rodriguez $7 million to sign out of Cuba in 2016 with the hopes he’d be their future big league shortstop. He could defend in the big leagues right now, but he hasn’t hit consistently. There’s little impact with the bat, though he is coming off his best offensive season, hitting .286/.325/.347 in Double-A to earn a late promotion up a level. Angels: Leonardo Rivas, SS/2B (No. 25) - Rivas can run and he can defend, and he even added the outfield to his resume in 2019. Speed and versatility is a combination that can make for an intriguing Rule 5 pick, but he’s struggled to hit consistently (.252/.380/.362), albeit with solid on-base skills From https://www.mlb.com/news/top-prospects-in-the-2019-rule-5-draft?t=mlb-pipeline-coverage
    • List of some of the available Rule 5 players.  The list offers explanations of why guys were unprotected, https://www.mlb.com/news/top-prospects-in-the-2019-rule-5-draft?t=mlb-pipeline-coverage  - Zach Brown was his stuff and command decline all while nearly doubling his BB/9 - Juvier had a 6-89 stretch over 25 games in A ball.  After reading some more I think I’d want Jordan Sheffield then have us take two fliers on position players. I like a couple of the defense first SS that played in AA but have questions about their bat. Just going with the theory that they didn’t get to play with the juiced ball and they can at least handle the position defensively.  My wish list would be, - Dodgers: Jordan Sheffield, RHP (No. 26) - Reds: Alfredo Rodriguez, SS (No. 18) - The Reds gave Rodriguez $7 million to sign out of Cuba in 2016 with the hopes he’d be their future big league shortstop - One of the 3B, COF bats available. Santana from LAD or Moises Gomez from TB. 
    • I know he was really bad, but those numbers.... those are eye popping.  And to think we had someone who was even worse (Straily)!
