Well, with the Orioles being officially eliminated from getting the AL East title, let's look back at this season for the good thing...

Getting to see the kids called up!

Who has been your favorite call up(s), who has impressed you, who exceeded your expectations? You don't have to limit it to just 1 player.

I'll put my thoughts into the ones I voted for a bit later today.

Mullins is the obvious answer, but I went to school with one of Ryan's parents and it is cool to see him do well, even though I have never met him.

Mullins definitely. 

Even though they aren’t prospects, would love to see Yaz and Rosa before they are DFA-ed at season’s end.

Nunez is slashing .286/.338/.460/.799 (OPS+ 120) in 18 games with the O's. He's only 24. If he continues to hit and his fielding improves, he could at least hold down 3B until there's a better option. Or, he could be the option.

I hadn't realized he was hitting so we'll. Good stuff.

I voted for Wynns, Fry, Wilkerson, and Mullins.

I think people know why I like Wynns, but he has also done a lot better than I thought he would, as far as hitting. Also, 5 for 11 caught stealing (where it should be atleast 7 for 11 if Nunez and Beckham learn to catch a throw) is pretty good.

Fry has been a favorite since Bowie and I'm glad he got a chance and has done well. He has his ups and downs like a rookie, but he seems to have had the best showing out of the rookie pitchers so far. Also, who doesn't love the "Players Choice" jersey name?

Wilkerson is another favorite, this time since Frederick. His injury came at a bad time (not that there ever is a good time for that), as he could of built on that good game he had. His glove seems to have come as advertised. The bat started to do a bit. Can't wait for him to come back and really get a shot.

Mullins is just awesome. A shy dude who always has a giant smile, it was great seeing him in Bowie and getting to chat with him a bunch. Setting an Orioles record in his debut was awesome. If you only read stories about him or seem clips here and there, you are in for a real treat once he gets a little settled in.

Mullins has been a treat to watch.  Now let's see how the board acts when he goes through his first 0-20 strech.

That said, he looks good.  The way he turned on that inside fastball for his first hit was awesome.  Real quick bat.

I voted for Mullins because he's obvious, but I kinda like Yefry Ramirez.  I am not sure why.

    • I don't imagine Mason Williams will be able to play the next few days so we will probably get to see more of Hays on this homestand.
    • From a purely impersonal point of view, I agree with you.    But in the real world, guys who have been with the club most of the year and have made some contributions aren’t going to be completely cut off.    They’ll get tossed a bone here and there.     And yes, I realize that one can debate whether Smith or Wilkerson  “made some contributions.”    
    • It was intended as a wisecrack.    The mores of 1976 weren’t the same as today.    Believe me, Weaver said a lot worse.     As to Cuellar, I understand Weaver made the remark after Cuellar complained about not getting enough starts in 1976, a year in which he went 4-13 with a 4.96 ERA (66 ERA+).    To me it was just Weaver’s colorful way of saying that he felt he’d given Cuellar plenty of chances that year.    Not a comment on Cuellar’s overall performance during his career.    And my point in quoting Weaver was that Cuellar got a lot more chances that year than a pitcher without his track record would have gotten.     Even Earl Weaver believed that a guy who had earned it over a long period of time deserved some rope.   Buck was far from alone in that regard.   
    • They have to many players on the team.  I think they should be evaluating the guys who need evaluating.  I think we can close the book on Smith and Wilkerson.
    • I would keep Villar.  He is a good major league player.  We have too few of them to give them away.
    • It was a cheap shot on his first wife as well.
    • I haven't done the full 40-man eval but I'd protect him over the other guys you listed. Would the plus curve and the slider that is more slurrvy, I think he's got a pretty good chance of being a solid bullpen arm. From July to the end of the year batters slashed .147/.284/.206/.490 off him with a 0.47 ERA over 19.1 IP with 22 Ks and 11 BBs. Agreed the fastball command needs to tighten up a bit but at 93-95, it has enough on it to keep guys honest even when he not commanding as well.
