This sounds like a nice event. Anything at Oriole Park will have a more baseball feel to it than being in the Convention Center. Hopefully the weather will cooperate. The next few weeks are supposed to average in the 40's. We've had Decembers when it's in the 30's.

free to season ticket holders. $5.00 or a winter coat for others. They should get a Raven to appear since they are playing Thursday night. Opening Day throw out first pitch should be Lamar Jackson. I know when the Ravens first came into town that the orioles were not happy but have grown over the years to get along. Birds of a feather flock together.

I could put a video of my daughter getting face painted on youtube if you would like.

I'm going to assume the guy wants to watch Elias and Sig talk about interesting baseball stuff. 

I feel like that's a pretty safe assumption. That's the not-weird assumption.

I'll stop by and pick up a 50 percent off Christmas gift or two at the team store to get the free ornament. The Orioles Sherpa Blanket that will be given away to the first 1,000 attendees was a really good giveaway from last year. It is a quality couch blanket.

Probably won't stay for the Elias, Mejdal and Hyde portion of the event, I can't imagine they will say anything we haven't already heard.

Well I might attend but I have zero interest in listening to the BS that comes out Elias'  mouth.  And I hardly think listening to him will be anyway interesting.  I could probably come up with what he says before he says it.  

If I go it will be to listen to the holiday music, face painting , photos with Santa Bird, Ice Sculptures and hot chocolate.  I am free from 12 to 2 on Saturday so if the weather is nice I will most likely attend. 

I am sure someone will capture Elias and Hyde's comments and post them on Youtube.  It won't be me though.

    • DJ LeMahieu is a free agent at the end of the year
    • I really like what I see from Means.  I think of him as emerging as a 2 - a top 25-50 SP with some consistency.   He has been wicked good the past month.  I like that he and his wife are both driven to be so good at their craft and are so competitive.  One can count on Means maximizing his stuff through hard work, desire and dedication.  
    • IMO, the current major league rotation is a C+ depending on Means ceiling and the future outlook of Akin and Kremer. I believe the minor league situation is an A.  I am not sure how many organizations have 2 SP candidates in the top 100, but by law of averages I doubt it is much more than 10.  There are a LOT of names with reasonable chances of becoming 3-5 SPs in the organization.  Baumann may be the next biggest name and we heard nice things about Bradish and we still have Lowther, Wells and Smith leading the wave after Akin/Kremer.  And a bunch of names below that. I would have to strongly disagree about any renaissance with pitching philosophies.  Our current FO has spent very little of the past few drafts on pitching.  Almost all of the names in the opening post were provided by the prior regime.  I think this is mostly by design as Elias will draft hitters.  Going forward, I expect our pitching inventory to be stocked by international signs, trades for minor leaguers in other organizations (such as the Bradish and Smith deals) and lastly - like Houston - trade for TOR, cost controlled SPs mostly using the hitting inventory.  I expect high $ investments in pitchers in the draft and internationally will be a lesser occurrence.
    • Agreed with all points.  And reasonable expectations, too.
    • Definitely, all prospects are flawed and no pitching prospect can be counted on. I would be very pleased to get a 3, a 4, a 5, and a late inning reliever (Castro or Givens quality) out of the Akin, Kremer, Baumann, Zimmermann, Wells, Bradish, and Smith crowd. A lot of quantity and reasonable quality.  If we can get a #2 out of Hall and Rodriguez, I would be pleased. Tough to ever expect even 50 percent of pitching prospects to pan out. Obviously I hope they both become top of the rotation starters, but you can't rely on it. I would have been pleased to get a reasonable 6th inning reliever out of David Hess. Of course, occasionally a John Means comes along and blows your expectations out of the water, but that is much more rare than the other way around.
    • He seems to have command/control issues, that's for sure.  
    • I suppose the grade is a measurement of the actual talent, the philosophy in scouting/developing for the position, and the depth.  That's why I believe they deserve the A.
