  1. 1. What trade return do you expect for Zach Britton?

    • The return will be outstanding
    • The return will be solid
    • The return will be merely decent
    • The return will comparable to Colin Moran: low OBP, below average power, poor fielder with a limited future in MLB
    • The return will be worse than Colin Moran
    • The Orioles will not trade Britton and will not receive a compensation pick since there is no chance they will QO him.

Brach owes Schoop and Beckham dinner for turning that DP on wet track.

Yeah but Beckham and Nunez owe hm for the mess. The Orioles pitchers numbers are hurt by the poor defense. Hopefully the Dodgers were watching

I'm happy about this, especially since the Royals are also winning.  I don't want us to lose the Bobby Witt Jr sweepstakes.

Yep, always got an eye on that.

The Dodgers still want Brach?  xD

Did you watch the game 2 weak hits ....and 2 errors in a heavy rain. We obviously weren't watching the same game (rolls eyes).

Was a joke.

BTW I'm listening not watching but I heard the two infield hits and the error.

He's kinda old for AA.

yeah but when you OPS 2.100 in the high minors I think your age goes out the window.

Oh got it.... but the Beckham flip was awful. No chance to get him he's safe if Beckham gets it to Davis. 

Nunez should be an error imo

Rain was steady and pretty heavy

We could always go back to discussing Chris Davis' historically bad season.

It's what happens when you win 29 out of 102 games.

not to pick on anyone when they're down, but the orioles did a lot better for Britton than the mets did for Familia. Tate is the yanks' No. 6 prospect (plus the other 2 guys going to Baltimore are solid), mets got Oakland's No. 17 prospect and a bit more.

    • Yeah...in the minors. I don’t know anything about the guy, but if his defense is bad, he’s not really a utility guy, because utility guys by definition are glove-good at multiple positions. If he hits really well, he’s a 1B/DH type, and if he doesn’t hit well, he’s nothing. I just checked his stats at BBR and his D at both positions is poor.
    • What constitutes blazing? .400 OBP AND ~.900 OPS each of the last two years is pretty good. 
    • Me either but I voted Rom and Smith.
    • Does anyone know where to get minor league team home and away splits?  A quick perusal of Ashville hitters 2019 splits only reinforced the idea that Vavra 's 2019 numbers were possibly inflated due to a favorable home park.
    • Who are the #17 and #18 Prospects
    • You are right about the hours played each day. It is a big part of the culture on the islands. I have been coaching kids for the last 15 years in Central Florida. Like Drungo said, kids have more options and distractions in the US. It can be tough to get a kid to put the work in away from the field when we only practice two days a week in the younger ages. The higher end travel teams do not practice in the high school years, not at all. They can't because their kids are from all over the state, or even the nation. They show up and play for a week to ten days and go home until the next tournament. Meanwhile, the DR kids are at a Baseball Academy year round for 2-3 years before they sign a contract. It really isn't a level playing field, developmentally. There are a few places where you can go to a high school that is a baseball academy, TNXL is one here in Altamonte Springs, Florida. TNXL is run by the Scorpions organization.  More kids in Florida play baseball than many Northern states, but the burnout rate is high in Florida as well. Year round baseball, or any sport for that matter, is not a good thing long term. Overuse injuries, such as all of the elbow and shoulder issues for pitchers are a direct result of this. College coaches all want to know what other sports a kid plays. The three sport stars are discouraged from playing three sports. Football is still king in Florida. Baseball also does not develop athleticism, although it demands it. So you have to play explosive movement sports, and/or train at a complex to develop the athleticism. That gets expensive, along with everything else you have to do to have a chance. My son worked out at the same place that Ryan Mountcastle and Blake Bortles worked out at. Excellent results.  The gap is closing with the proliferation of indoor facilities. Kids can work on their skills year round now. Seeing more kids from Pennsylvania in recent years who play the game at a very high level. That is a very good thing IMO.
