Was Chris Sabo pretty good for the O's when he was there? I'm having trouble remembering much about the team then.

It's an attractive female name for sure.  If I was talking to a girl and she was like "...Oh yeah, my friend Taylor Teagarden is coming along too,"  I'd automatically be stoked.

Sounds like a villainess in an Austin Powers flick. Like Felicity Shagwell*

 

* A good utility outfielder name.

I recall him being pretty terrible.

They had Leo Gomez.  Gomez had an off year in '93, so they signed the 32-year-old Sabo.  Sabo hit .228 in April,  then got hurt.  Gomez had an .868 OPS for the year.  When Sabo came back they decided to move him to the outfield even though it looks like he'd been exclusively a third baseman going to through college.

He hit pretty well, but I don't think he was happy being moved to the outfield. After the lockout/strike he left, and his career was over in a couple years.

That was prior to Lasik, but after they invented sports goggles.  I guess contacts were not for sports?  And we'll never go back to those hideous 70s glasses.

My boy Nate wears very similar specs to Sabo to play sports.

    • I've really enjoyed the prospect lists. The prospect lists are my favorite thing to look forward too. There's so few sites that offer such great information about organizational prospects especially many that aren't on many of the top lists. I'm really interested to see Welk in his first full season and how quickly the organization pushes him given his age. Also, I wonder if they think about moving Blaine Knight who I think is probably too small to move forward as a starter and Hanifee to the pen? I really hope that Hanifee who is a local kid who grew up in Cecil before moving to Virginia takes a step forward next year.
    • I've been intrigued by Cotton. IIRC, I believe Gagnon is close to signing with a Korean team.
    • I would say Hernaiz, but Tony was so high on him that he is already pretty high up the list.  If Stauffer comes out next year and shows he can hold his stuff and perform as a starter, he's basically Kremer with a better changeup. So that'd be a jump. McLarty or Welk are potential jumpers, McLarty could easily to come out a throw 92-95 with average or better command and a solid 3 pitch mix as a starter, that would part him in as a #5 SP projection. Which would put him as a 45 (11-17th in this year's list). Welk could show he is an average glove at 3B, 55 hit, 45 power, that's probably a second division 3B, a 45 (11-17th in this year's list). Fenter is kind of a similar skill set as Baumann (curve instead of slider out pitch) but a little less stuff, so if he moves fast and performs he could be Baumann with a little more age and relief risk. That's a 45. I won't list guys off the 30 because I don't want to spoil a future article, but needless to say there are plenty of potential jumpers there. To respond to @Frobby's post, when I sent my personal 30 to Tony to start the process of integrating our thoughts, I included 20 guys that I had in the same tier as the last 4 guys on my 30. My tiers are a little different than the final list. 
    • Also it is amazing that we lost our pitching and bullpen coach because Brady thought they were the reason Wright wasn’t succeeding. 
    • I predict he gets shelled in the KBO.  He is no Tyler Wilson. 
    • I don’t see that at all.  
    • Buck was making something like 4 million a year.  Hyde probably makes several million less than that. Elias probably makes less than DD.  Brady’s salary is gone.  I am sure they are highly profitable. When the Astros were tanking they were most profitable team in MLB.
