That's not the way I look at it. I listen to songs; with rare exceptions, I don't read the lyrics. Some song lyrics stand alone very well; others don't. But what I care about is the package of lyrics, melody, arrangement, instrumentation and vocal performance. I realize that some of those elements are independent of the songwriter.
That's interesting. I would have originally guessed that the resurgences of Hays, Mullins, Valaika, and DJ, the continually hot Iglesias and Mountcastle, and the subtraction of Davis and Smith, Jr. would have bolstered the team stats more during the last 20 games.
And...Stewart's good catches and a few Mullins + Hays days late got the Orioles up to 9th (this is perhaps the same thing Mountcastle/Kremer will do for the FARM rank).
If Yusniel is actually any good, it could be fun to see what Hays/Mullins/Diaz could do, with Mountcastle/Santander 1B/DH.
Thi is all about the possibility that the 2021 season will be shortened. The Orioles saved a ton of money on Davis this season. If they can save a chunk again next year, they will wait to let it play out.
The draft order article on the CBS sports site shows the once mighty O's picking fifth.
It also says that Manfred Mann can change the way the order is done since the teams did not play 81 games. Keep in mind that this is the same butthead that wants to move the mound back two feet because the supposed best baseball players in the world can't handle the velocity the pitchers throwing with.
