I also provided a link.

Didn’t see it and I can never get a read on you when I’m looking at you.

They didn't want two actual center fielders on the team at the same time.

Well, yeah. Can you blame them?

Smith has been hard to watch in the field.  Defense would be much better with Stewart in left and Broxton in center.  Smith to 4th outfielder.  Wilkerson to utility infielder and outfielder.  Alberto DFA’d.

Why pick Alberto to DFA he has actually played pretty well.  Why not go to 4 man bench?  Or there is an obvious choice to DFA.  A guy who hasn’t hit over .170 in the last 2 years.

I don’t think they’re willing to give up on Davis quite.  If Wilkerson is your utility player, Alberto is not needed.  With this rotation, they need bodies in the bullpen, so I don’t think they can afford to have fewer pitchers.

I actually agree with you on Davis (I assume that’s who you mean).  I wish they’d let him and Trumbo both go.  Just don’t see it yet.

I feel like if I had made this comment, you would have 100% replied: "Joey Rickard is an actual center fielder?"

So I'm going to make that comment here.

Joey Rickard is an actual center fielder?

What’s a guy have to do to get a cup of coffee in Baltimore? Break Davis’ leg? The Orioles had Wilkerson in right last night. Hopefully it is Stewart ASAP.

I'm thinking a 2K OPS will show he has mastered the level.

He’s had two months.   First was .700 OPS, second has been 1.400. I need to see 2.800 in June!

More seriously, as great as he’s been this month, let’s see what June brings.   I don’t know that a hot 3+ weeks amounts to mastering a level.     In a way I’m more impressed with Mountcastle, who having not played AAA before, has put up two strong months in a row.

It certainly seems as if Mountcastle has been much more consistent. I expect him to be in our lineup in 2020. I expect Stewart to be a reserve or back in Norfolk (but I will be happy to be wrong).

Mountcastle's obviously the better prospect but Stewart has a walk rate that is over 4x higher than Mountcastle while having a lower strikeout rate. He's also 25 years old. What's the point of still having him down at AAA at this point? Promote Stewart and DFA Nunez or Ruiz. Let's see what we have with this guy.

I agree we can't rely on 3 hot weeks, but Stewart is 25 years old. At some point we need to see what he can do for a sustained run in the bigs. I honestly don't think anyone was expecting Dwight Smith to have this type of start to the season and he's taken the spot Stewart would be filling right now. Smith's season so far seems to be the best-case scenario for Stewart.

Base case scenario for Stewart involves average or slightly better defense and an OBP higher than 312.

    • Oh, I don’t disagree with you one bit, I think Aiken should start. I would love to give him a start, and Lowther too. Maybe Zimmerman.  I do not see any reason why Eshelman should start, and you misunderstood what I said. I was only saying that the guys in charge know more than I do and they have their reasons. I am giving them a bit of the doubt in assuming that their reasons are defensible, Because I cannot think of any reason on my own, why Eshelman is starting. Maybe he married the bosses daughter?
    • Doesn't look like there is any rain in the forecast after 7:00.  No reason they can't delay the game until the showers move through.  
    • Both Jim Hunter and Mike Bordick pointed out the deep talent on this club and the negative impacts of luck and bad umpiring that made the final record misleading
    • Yep, 82 is up there for me.   Went to a lot of games with friends, I guess we all had our licenses in 1981 but the strike took out a chunk of that year, so this was the first time we were going to a ton of games as opposed to just going to games when my Dad took me.   I think the O's had a great record in games I went to that year and i personally saw 6 or 7 Oriole grand slams in like 20 games attended, which is ridiculous bu t it happened. So 1982 is near the top of my list.   1989 was great, I was out of college and had my first 13 game plan and wound up going to 45 games, an all time high.   1979, I was all in on Oriole Magic.   I'm sure those are my top 3.   1983, 1980 (100 wins but no playoffs), 1977 (lost a ton to free agency and age but brought in a whole ton of young talent), 2012, 1997, 1996...   I've named 9 years now, so I just need to add one more for my top 10.   I'll put 2014 in. Putting them in order would be tough
    • I don't say much nice about the Athletic but kudos for them for not putting it behind a paywall.

    • I remember '82 as well, although I was only 11.  My enduring memories of that year are trading my favorite player, Doug DeCinces, for Disco Dan Ford, being incredulous about the Brewers acquiring Don Sutton on August 30th (What?  Wasn't the deadline a month ago?), and crying my eyes out during the last game of the season both when they were blown out early and when Earl had his curtain call.
