Gene Brabender...OK..he was actually a pretty good reliever for us for several years...We traded him to Seattle Pilots who moved to Milwaukee and they made him a starter and his arm went south...We got Chico Salmon in trade...but really I always include Brabender just because a 12 year old boy and his adolescent buddies always liked his name....lol.

That was what immediately came to mind.    Ah, the good old days.

I was going to mention Chico Salmon for this thread.

And Tommy Shopay.

P Brad Bergensen (F'n MASN)

One time I wrote publicly that Bergesen had suffered his career-altering injury while filming a MASN commercial. A MASN employee sent me a stern e-mail pointing out (correctly) that the commercial that injured him wasn't for MASN, it was for Orioles season tickets.

So I feel obligated to defend MASN's honor here. They're not to blame for Bergesen.

1B - Glenn Davis. We probably had worse 1B's but relative to expectations and cost, Glenn Davis was a massive failure.

2B - Alan Wiggins. Billy Ripken had a 4 WAR season! Wiggins slugged .272 and .268, drug problems, hidden ball trick (then made three errors the next game) etc.

C - Floyd Rayford - definitely a lovable bad player

OF - Sosa

P - Mike Wright - I really can't think of a worse pitcher, terrible hair, just terrible.

1b: Jay Gibbons. Strangely, didn't look athletic, but oddly large arms. Fan favorite.

2b: Billy Smith. Everyone thought this guy was our future second baseman

3b: Aurelio Rodriguez, because nothing sounded cooler than Chuck Thompson saying "Aurelio Rodriguez" on the radio

SS: Kiko Garcia. Who didn't love chanting "Ki-ko, Ki-ko, Ki-ko"

C: Floyd Rayford. Man, this guy was round.

LF: Pat Kelly. Loved watching a ball bounce off his glove and over the wall for a home run

CF: Lee Lacy. Got to love a guy who brings his drug scandal with him to the team

RF: Pete Incaviglia. No discernable athletic ability

DH: Sam Horn. He was a home run waiting to happen. Waiting after a bunch of strikeouts

P: Ken Dixon. What's more endearing than a guy who was a 2 pitch pitcher proclaiming to the media that he didn't need to learn a third pitch.

Relief: Tom Niedenfurer. I remember a woman telling me that she couldn't believe someone with that big a gut could be a professional athlete

Closer: Kevin Hickey, because absolutely everyone loved Kevin Hickey

Catcher:  Jeff Tackett.  Used to call him "Whack-it, Tackett," which was funny because he couldn't.  He had that cool flat top though.

1st Base:  Kevin Millar.  Not that good by the time he got here.  Still liked him.

2nd Base:  Billy Ripken.  Used to call him "Big Lumber Bill," which was hilarious to me when I was a kid because he couldn't hit a lick.  But he was a great fielder.  

SS:  Deivi Cruz:  I'm not sure why.

3rd Base:  Leo Gomez.  Leo Gomez, IIRC, actually led all rookies in 1991 with 14 homers.  My mom had a crush on him which I thought was weird but hilarious.  He was also really nice.  Cleaning up my parents basement a few weeks ago, I came across about 5 different autographed Leo Gomez cards.

OF:  Corey Patterson.  Patterson could fly and I think I still held out hope that he'd reach some of that lofty prospect status he had when he came up.  He was 

OF:  Felix Pie.  I mean, c'mon

OF:  Luis Matos.  Thought the dude was going to be great, still liked him no matter what.

Some initial guys that came to mind.  I think I could do another lineup later.

    • I think we can pretty safely rule out Baumann and Kjerstad here Honestly, I could see the case for Hall, Henderson or Westburg. Tony has had Henderson ahead of Westburg pretty much all year, so I'm going to eliminate Westburg. Game then becomes which hurts the guy more in Tony's eyes? Hall being injured for most of the year or Westburg's poor defense. If I could have only one of these guys in the system, I'd pick Hall because the upside is tantalizing and we really need starting pitching. I'm going to guess Tony feels the same, but I still have a strong hunch it's Henderson. Going with "Disabled List" Hall here.
    • Good write up. Looking forward to (hopefully) seeing him pitch in the big leagues in 2022. Back in the day the Orioles always broke their young starters in as long relief specialists, and I’m wondering if that might be the best role for G-Rod when he’s eventually promoted to the majors. Give him 50-60 pitches in a blowout once or twice a week. They would be low pressure innings where he could find his footing without having to worry about wins and losses. If I remember correctly that’s how Flanagan, McGregor, Boddicker, Ben McDonald, and maybe even Wayne Garland saw their first big league action. I’d certainly rather watch a kid like Rodriguez in that spot this coming season than a 29 or 30 year old journeyman who’s on his fifth team in six years.

    • Who is the Orioles 2021 #5 prospect?
    • https://www.orioleshangout.com/2021/10/27/colton-cowser/
    • Roch seems on board: “If the Orioles can implement their prospect plan at third base, Coby Mayo will be handling the hot corner and hitting long home runs for many years. “They can figure out how to occupy the middle infield with the batch of shortstops who crash their top 30 prospects lists, including Gunnar Henderson and Jordan Westburg among the first 10. Henderson could be the shortstop and Westburg the second baseman. They could reverse roles. “One of them could move over to third, but good luck trying to budge Mayo. “You can delay the fourth-rounder, but you can’t hold Mayo for long.” https://www.masnsports.com/school-of-roch/2021/10/who-starts-at-third-base-while-orioles-wait-for-mayo.html  
    • I wonder what the consensus on Baker will be if the Astros win.
