Well I’ll be a monkeys uncle. Write down this day; I was wrong once.

You're wrong.  This isn't the day you were wrong.   You were wrong the other day when you said what happened today wouldn't happen...... ;)

Dumped Villar for nothing.  Alrighty.  I hope they aren't expecting to see me at Camden Yards this year.  

Seems rational.

The Chris Davis compensation money dump continues...

Roch:  “I’ll pass along comments from executive vice president/general manager Mike Elias later tonight.”

Waiting with bated breath.

Waiting with bated breath.   

The Orioles 2019 draft was positionally top heavy. Acquiring a college starter that signed for a premium at his draft position is at least a flyer.

I guess I don’t understand why we would want Villar next year. I couldn’t care less about losing Villar or what we get for him. Didn’t expect anything. Fine with salary dump no reason to spend 10 mill on him.

This also fits the type Fangraphs pegged as the Marlins after the Gallen-Chisholm challenge trade.

An interesting tidbit from that story - I am guessing Lucas is okay at Trackman.

I like that the Marlins appreciate flash, and sexy tools, and that they’re chasing them in trades, in the draft, and among international free-agents. A rival team source told me this week that Miami seemed much more willing to part with Trackman-friendly pitching than it was with their younger prospects in rookie ball.

    • Right, but unilateral rules for the way the game is played on the field, with the exception of the DH.  
    • Why the hell was he not strong the last few years?  
    • Yes - different rules for different parks...
    • If you just scout the traditional stat line, it's pretty easy to see why you might drop Hall from the list. You could look at the 6.02 BB/9 and say that he doesn't have the command and that he's destined to be a reliever, but it was reported that Holt told Hall and Akin to throw a lot more breaking balls in fastball counts. I would bet on an athletic pitcher like Hall tightening his command every day of the week. Besides if you look closer at his stats, there's a much more positive picture to be seen. His K/9 increased from 9.54 to 12.94, HR/9 decreased from 0.57 to 0.33, and average against dropped from .198 to .185. His FIP actually decreased from 3.67 to 3.22, so ultimately his stuff got even better this year and better hitters actually got worse at hitting him. I would really take this list with a grain of salt, BP really does not have the same reputation that it used to have.
    • A little to my surprise, the Rangers, their new stadium, and their stated desire to get more right-handed have missed Ozuna, Castellanos and now Starling Marte. Their player development staff may have a high appraisal of Ronald Guzman, who to some systems sits rather conspicuously as one of the worst regulars anywhere, never mind on aspiring contenders.  There's still Arenado/Bryant (though ATL figures to be fiercer for one, and they may not both be traded). I don't think Mancini alone gets to Jung/Solak on the back half of Top 100 lists, but could Givens with him? Sherten Apostel is perhaps overqualified to be his org's second best 3B prospect, and they've also buried Kolby Allard under some solid veteran SP's.
    • Thanks.  I’ll be here paying attention for you.  Sarasota’s especially nice during Feb/March.  You could have met fellow Baman’s mom and dad Henderson last year they were down for a couple weeks watching Gunnar.  Some guy got a ball signed by his whole family.  
    • He's been letting the ball travel really well.  All the way to the catcher's glove.
