There was no way Buchholz was going to spin a good game. Hard to understand that this is the same guy who came up and no-hit the Os in his first start ever. At the time, I thought Oh jeez another Red Sox phenom....

And bringing Hays up almost didn't happen if I remember right. He's had a chance to establish himself as our center fielder for next year and is much better defensively than I expected. I still wish we had Mountcastle in left to get a head start on next year as well.

    • At least one written rule was broken.  That's why the Astros were punished.  Sandy Alderson, then baseball’s executive vice president of baseball operations, sent the following memo to clubs in 2001:  Please be reminded that the use of electronic equipment during a game is restricted. No club shall use electronic equipment, including walkie-talkies and cellular telephones, to communicate to, or with, any on-field personnel, including those in the dugout, bullpen, field and – during the game – the clubhouse. Such equipment may not be used for the purpose of stealing signs or conveying information designed to give a club an advantage.  Commissioner Rob Manfred, said it was too difficult to punish the players because it was impractical given the number involved and their degrees of participation. Further, player punishment could have prompted an appeal or grievance from the players union.  In other words, Manfred never said he couldn't punish the players.  If that were true, Manfred would have covered his ass with it: "Boy, I'd sure like to suspend these shameful perpetrators but unfortunately my hands are really tied by these danged inadequate MLB laws."   He could have and should have punished the players but he's a coward when it comes to the union.
    • I think they should make everything based on age.  It would totally end manipulation. 
    • I agree - I'm thinking Hess breaks spring with a rotation spot.  
    • I think where he is now, he's worth a 2nd or 3rd round pick. He's that interesting with the bat. 
    • Jordon is currently in the #30-ish range for the 2020 draft. My guess is that he’ll drop down a bit further in favor of college players who have a good year. As things stand right now I can’t imagine the Orioles taking him with the 30th or 39th pick unless he shows improvement to his defense.    He strikes me as a guy who’s top potential is Pete Incaviglia. 
    • Well he -spent off-season working with guys that helped Means (make a difference...tbd) -has starter experience and can at go a few innings -We have 2.5 spots spots depending on how you see Cobb, so certainly availability for a few guys to step in/up It's clearly not a lock, but I would imagine they will try him in the rotation at least until he proves he can't.  Time will tell, but we're not rolling in SP, and I think he is among the guys that gets a chance.
    • I don't think he gets called up 2020 either way.  But they wouldn't keep him down for the whole of 2021.  It would stop holding guys back for an extra year and it would stop keeping guys down to avoid super 2.  Standardizing payroll would probably increase service time manipulation as a Super 2 would be overly expensive for every team.
