  1. 1. How many games will the Orioles win the rest of the year?

    • Less than 7 games
    • Between 8 and 12
    • Between 13 and 19
    • More than 20 games

They have played 106 games. Should be 56 remaining, although with rainouts it could end up being one or two less. Tough to lose 75 percent of your games and that would be 14 wins. I think 13 to 19 is pretty safe.

At a .302 win clip, that is 17 wins.  But with all the players they lost, I feel like the probably win about 10 more games.  

31 games left vs the Al East  

4 vs the Astros

3 vs Cleveland

3 vs Seattle

I think they'll win just enough games to miss out on the 1st Overall Pick by one game.

Do you really think the Royals can't win more games than a gutted Orioles team?

I voted between 13 and 19.

Their incompetence has been truly staggering. As has the Orioles', but don't put anything past the Royals either when it comes to their ability to screw up.

The Royals are the dumbest luckiest team that was ever assembled.

No matter how many games the Royals will win the rest of the year - one thing is for sure, Ned Yost will have no idea how many they did win.

I think that the talent level is just one variable here.  An Orioles team made up of AAA guys trying to earn a job for 2019 might just play better baseball than the Royals.  Remember all the stretch runs in the 1998-2011 era where the established O's players couldn't wait to go play some golf?  And who could blame them?

    • Just talking about the general trend that analytic teams realize that arms are more risky, so they're ranking gets slightly dinged to compensate for that. He also didn't pick a pitcher until the 8th round last year. Things like on base skills are harder to mold using modern training, places like driveline are much more effective for pitchers.
    • I guess so.  If they want to have Mize paired with Lacy/Hancock, it's hard to argue with.  Tork does seem to be the consensus #1 pick though.  I am curious when the last time there was a player previously thought to be the consensus #1 pick who didn't go first overall.   
    • Saw a mock draft with us taking Martin and left drafting pitcher Nick Swiney at 30 https://prospects365.com/2020/05/25/ray-butlers-2020-mlb-mock-draft/
    • The Frobster beat me to posting the Melewski interview by 13 minutes.   The article mentions the Os in on quality international prospects that we knew about including Samuel Basallo and Maikol Hernandez and one that I am not sure I have seen mentioned with the Os here - Wilmer Feliciano who will get a signing bonus just under $500k and has big left-handed power.  A reminder that none of these guys are signed, just apparently committed or agreed to the Os until they are signed. It seems like a very strong group of elite prospects given how late our current FO was to the game of signing this upcoming J2 class.   The payoff from these guys is likely years away, but I think there is a chance last year's class and this year's class should start impacting our top 30 prospects entering 2021.  How optimistic is it to think predict our next international signing to reach our top 10 would be by 2022?  
    • Don’t have a subscription, but here’s an interview the author, Ben Badler, gave to Steve Melewski.   https://www.masnsports.com/steve-melewski/2020/06/baseball-americas-ben-badler-on-os-international-effort-video.html At the end of the video, Badler speculates that the next CBA will create an international draft.   He thinks the players will posture about and then “maybe they’ll trade it for a few extra inches of legroom on the bus.”    LOL!    
    • Bad quality vid but its the only one that I found that shows Frohwirth's side of it. Back in that era Martinez grabs some pine 9 out of 10 times with that pitch.
