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.

    • Heard this little ditty tonight out of work.   Brand new.  
    • And tanking/not being good got them Harper, Strasburg, Rendon and a host of other talents.  Even if they win, it's a legit possibility that Rendon and Strasburg both depart via free agency, and without them, they've got a team that will hang a few games around .500, if they get the bullpen right. 
    • Yep, it's pretty clear what they are doing now. They're all in for this year which is a little weird, because I honestly don't think they are that great, but I guess this is the end of their run so might as well go for it!
    • That is where the accounting chicanery comes into play.  They still paying debt service on the money Angelos loaned the team?
    • I think this misrepresents the non-payroll expenses of the team.    Per Forbes, in 2018 the O’s had revenues of $251 mm, of which $42 mm were gate receipts.    The team reportedly had operating losses of $6.5 mm, and player expenses (salaries + benefits) of $161 mm.   So, that implies that other costs were $251 mm - $161 mm + $6.5 mm = $96.5 mm.    That’s more than paying trivial rent and a few coaches.      Extrapolating those numbers to this year, let’s assume non-gate revenue was flat, gate revenue was down proportionately to attendance (but it may have been worse), and player expenses were proportionate to payroll per BB-ref.   That leads to the following estimate:      Gate receipts $33.5 mm Other revenue: $209 mm Total revenue $242.5 mm Less: non-player expenses $96.5 mm Less: player expenses $94 mm  Net income:   $52.5 mm That’s probably too high, given that Elias has been investing in technology, infrastructure etc.   We’ll see what Forbes estimates next spring.     But certainly Elias had savings available to invest in other areas.
    • I am glad this OP was not around in the 1960s...1969-1971...average attendance was never even at 14,000 with the greatest teams of all time.  Guess what...still here.  I will love to look back on  this thread and some of these posts in three or four years when we are back in it.   And when we get back in it AND the Nats are a power team...maybe a true rivalry will exist and maybe even a Beltway Series.  A true rivalry will fire up new fans in both areas.  Either way, the Orioles are going nowhere. Not in 10 years, not in 15 years, not in 100 years.   No other location has Camden Yards, Babe Ruth’s birthplace, Cal, Frank, Brooks, Eddie, Earl and MLB is not going to leave this iconic ballpark and its tradition empty and abandoned to move to ummm Nashville...lol. My niece also is the agent now for Harbor East and other new downtown condos...they are as hot as anything in DC or anyplace else.
