Maybe too soon to ask about Mike Wright

I know with Wright to wait until the real games count by now. Would be nice for a pitching prospect to figure it out for once or not get hurt.

Is that too much to ask as an Orioles fan? 🙋‍♂️

Yeah! Except for Bedard for one year and then Arrietta after he was traded, ours never seem to click and really take that next step. Be nice if the new regime could have some success(ES).

I have faith Elias and Co. will remedy the long pitching prospect drought.

Why can't these reporters read a schedule?

We’ll only list four starters here since the Orioles don’t technically need a fifth until the third week of the season. - Joe Trezza

If there’s no room in the rotation, especially with early off-days eliminating the need for a fifth starter until April 10, the Orioles can return him to their bullpen to provide coverage for multiple innings. - Roch

The truth this the O's play 5 games in a row between March 30 and April 3rd.   So the fifth starter is need the first week of the season.

These guys are driving me nut?  Just NUTS!  What else do they have to do but report the information correctly.

 

Trezza is not very good so far. I saw he posted a 25 man roster update shortly after the thread started online here. Real out of touch.

Just look at this stupid  article written but Joe Trezza.

1) First he reports the O's do not need a 5th starter until the 3rd week of the season which could not be  more wrong.

2) Then he contradict himself by saying they only need 4 starters and then lists 5 starters at the bottom of the article .  Come on, Joe.  At least be consistent inside the same article.

3) Then he show incredibly bad judgement by saying the Ortiz will make the bullpen.   Why?   Does he watch or listen to the games?    Can he read a box score?  Ortiz has given up 8 runs in 5 innings this  spring after giving up 4 runs in 2.1 innings in his September callup.  He is about three days  from being sent the minors.

How am I supposed to have any faith is Trezza's reporting when I can't trust the facts he states, the consistency in his  writing or the baseball judgement that he apparently does not have.

AAAAgh.

Unless I’m misinterpreting it, the list at the bottom is from MLB.com, not Trezza.   Trezza’s list is above and doesn’t include Ortiz.

I thought Trezza  is Orioles.com for MLB.  Isn't that his job.

Sorry to rain on wildcard's parade, but they don't need a 5th starter until the 3rd time through (April 11).

Those 5ish straight days are bookend by off days. So, to keep the top 4 guys on somewhat normal rest you can skip SP5 twice.

March 28th SP1, 29th Off day, 30th SP2, 31st SP3,  April 1st SP4, 2nd SP1, 3rd SP2, 4th SP3, 5th Off day, 6th SP4, 7th SP1, 8th SP2, 9th SP3, 10th SP4, 11th SP5.

Or am I somehow wrong like the 3 reporters.

Anytime you play 5 straight days you need a 5th starter. They play March 30-April 3.

Your April 3 starter is only on 3 days rest.

It was Trezza’a list from the first time he projected the roster before spring training started.  

https://www.mlb.com/orioles/news/o-s-opening-day-roster-prediction-c303767988

Thanks.    I noticed that article called it “our” first attempt.    So it’s not clear if it was exclusively Trezza’s list.    In any event I think Trezza is off the hook for that particular criticism.

Not the hook, your hook.

Yeah he could have worded it a little different. 

That said I don’t know how anyone can keep Fry off the roster.

He was wrong what he said about when they needed a 5th starter but the bottom was his projection BEFORE camp opened. 

He isn’t predicting Ortiz making the roster now.

So he’s still on your hook for saying on Feb. 10 he thought Ortiz was a frontrunner to make the roster?    That’s ridiculous.

He put it in the same article.  That is his decision of contradict himself.

    • One thing about the "Old" days, between WTOP  and WBAL AM radio had the areas pretty well coverage, and at night, WBAL could get some pretty nice skips down to southern md and PA.
    • I’m old enough to remember when the NBA draft was ten rounds; now it’s two.    The NFL draft was 17 rounds in 1975; today its 7 rounds.        Baseball is a different beast, but I’m not surprised they’d like to cut the draft way back.      Interestingly, I decided to look back on our past drafts to see how many late round picks made the majors.    In the very first year I looked at, 2000, our 32nd through 36th picks all made the majors — and they’re the only players we drafted that year who did!   Of course, 4 of those 5 didn’t sign with the O’s that summer and were drafted again later, in much higher rounds.     The only one we actually signed was Kirk Birkins, who we drafted as an outfielder in the 33rd round and was later converted to a pitcher, where he had a brief career as a roughly replacement level pitcher (-0.4 rWAR in 75.1 innings spread over three seasons).   
    • When I was 10 the worst problem I had in the world was that my bedtime was 8:30 or 9:00, which meant I went to bed in the 5th or 6th or 7th inning all the time, and had to sneak a transistor radio under my pillow to make it to the 9th.  Today 8:30 is sometimes the bottom of the 3rd. Now that I'm 48 it's an annoying problem that my kids can't stay up for the 5th inning, and I'm often asleep before the game is over.  They don't own transistor radios, and they probably couldn't pick up the O's game anyway.
    • Not trying to be smart, but I thought Cal had sold off his share of the Aberbeen, along with another of his minor league holders. Nobody said why, but, shortly later, his divorce became public, and people assume he was putting together her part of the holdings.
    • I'm don't think I'm making any large leaps assuming that Aberdeen is hands-off because of Cal Ripken.
    • Why should Delmarva get sacrificed?  After all, they were the Minor League Team of the Year and has a modern stadium in Salisbury.  Screw convenience... it's nice to have professional baseball come through the Eastern Shore since 1996 and I don't see why that should be tampered with.  An increase in affiliation could lead to the team putting more seats down the left and right side of the diamond to encourage more revenue to accommodate their increased affiliation.
    • At this point, this is throwing good money after bad.  Any appeal is almost certain to be doomed.  What error has the court committed to warrant review?  Angelos just lived through one of his biggest fears.  The Nats winning a World Series.
