Well unless Santander and Dwight Smith Jr. show up pretty soon, they're going to have to. There were only 2 active outfielders (Hays and Stewart) before they were added. 

For this reason I think Wilkerson is about as close to a lock for the 30-man as possible.

Before Covid hit, I think a lot of us thought Williams had a very good chance to make the team as a backup outfielder.

And I think most of us expected that Mountcastle would stay down some period of time for service time, and then come up to the majors.

Why would that have changed in any way?

We knew that sometimes prospects slump or get out of whack and need to try to reset things and fix what's wrong.  Mullins isn't the prospect he was a year ago, but he might be salvageable.

Remember when Cal hit .150 through his first 120-odd plate appearances in the majors?

Wish we had Earl around to give his stamp of approval and keep playing him (Mullins.)

Didn’t realize Mason Williams was 29....he’s obviously a now or never kind of guy. He can almost be labeled AAAA now. 
 

Sounds like the plan is for Mountcastle to get some significant ABs just looking at the https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/baltimore-orioles

Williams is a viable inexpensive guy that can be plugged in for this season.

Whats with the Orioles playing dumb with all this "we have ghost outfielders because we don't have enough players"?

Like... you filled your roster 3/4 of the way, why don't you fix this?

Pittsburgh is the only other team I can see that has taken the same tack as the O's and not had any prospects added to the roster.

Mountcastle's 23.  He needs MLB at bats now or he'll be too old to be a top prospect.

Isn't that backwards?  If Mountcastle were one of the top prospects in baseball he would have many MLB at bats by 23 or 24.  One of the reasons Elias could leave him in AAA all year last year is that he wasn't running roughshod over the league, yes he's pretty young but he's a 1B/LF/DH with the 40th-best OPS in the IL, 4th or 5th-best on the Tides.

O's also seem to be the only team where without intersquad game footage other than a view videos posted by Roch. I can't find any.

    • Bleier trade continues to bite the O's last night.  Fry  could not find the plate especially against right-handed batters. Needing to face three batter in not Fry's game.    It didn't affect the outcome because the O's didin't  hit.  However, Fry does not look up to being the 2nd lefties in the pen  which shows how much the O's miss Bleier.  Fry would be a candidate to be sent down but there is no lefty to replace him so he will probably stay in the majors.
    • SummerSlam ‘92 is on FS1.  Quarantine + Nostalgia = Mullet for backwardsk ?
    • I missed another game. My sleep schedule sleep patterns are SOOOOOOOO screwed up... I laid down for a quick nap before the game about 4:30. When I woke up at MIDNIGHT I had missed the entire thing. Turned on the TV to watch the 11:30 replay and THANK GOD the Gnats are back playing! They're the replay tonight... fml     So.... I'm not going to read the thread or the board. Or Roch. It's 1:30 am. I'm having my "morning" glass of coffee (yes BIG TALL GLASS) and I'm going to watch the 9 am MASN replay "live". So I have THAT going for me. 🙃 GO O'S!!!!
    • And now for something completely different...   NSFW https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lpx_VXRG_qc  
    • Now that does make sense: greater risk, greater reward. So do healthy pitchers make more than healthy batters? Serious question.
    • On his pro-rated salary, Cobb would earn @ $4.5MM the rest of this season. That would be nothing for a contending team to take on if they were sold on him putting them over the top. But I can't imagine being so desperate on August 4, 10 games into a 60 game season if I were a decision maker to take on the entirety of his contract.  If a team really wants to gamble a little bit of cash on Cobb to win this year's WS, they may be wrangled into taking half the burden on the 2021 salary, while the Orioles pay half of this season's $4.5MM remaining. This is starting to sound too good to be true!
