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.

    • Wells threw 2 more clean innings yesterday, striking out one.   His ERA is now 0.66 in 13.2 IP, with a 1.02 WHIP.
    • Fanfest is an off-season event to get the fans excited about the season.  A minor league game played at Camden Yards before or after the season isn't getting anyone excited about the season.  Maybe it is a nice thing for the minor league players who will never get to play in Camden Yards otherwise.  I don't see it getting fans excited about the season.  And it is also free to Season ticket holders.  They get to hear from players and management.  The free fanfest and the in season q&a for season ticket holders with GM and manager were nice features of being a season ticket holder. While a Bowie vs Norfolk game might be something that appeals to you I doubt it would get anyone to pony up for season tickets or buy more game Oriole game tickets. 
    • While I'll never root for the Yanks, part of me almost wanted them to demolish everyone else and stand astride MLB with a metaphorical spear driven through the league.  Cackling maniacally, flaunting their $650M in revenues. It's not completely a coincidence that the Yanks utterly dominated the 1950s, and in the early 60s we got expansion, the draft, teams moving everywhere... Only when the Evil Empire crushes everyone do we stand a chance of MLB really taking proactive steps to subdue them. But I'll take them losing the pennant.
    • WAR is just a framework.  And an open source one at that.  As better metrics evolve you just plug those in.  Right now there's nothing stopping anyone from using Statcast data for outfielder defense in WAR.  Someone may not like how bb-ref or Fangraphs implements some part of WAR.  That's fine.  They should come up with their own value and use that instead.  But they should be prepared to defend it, because like I said, this is all open source. 
    • How so? He pitched a scoreless eighth inning, in the set-up role he's had the whole season. And he barely got through it unscathed despite loading the bases.
    • I always root for the AL representative to the Series....it is just my way.
