O's need to go 12-9 to avoid a sell off.

It sounds to me like his decision has always been the same. A little difference in W/L's didn't really sway the opinion of the guy paid to run the team. I'm not a big fan of Elias but at least he's come in and been consistent on what he's doing, how he's going to do it, and communicating it along the way.

It only makes sense to compete if you have the right personnel. We certainly don’t have the starting pitching outside of Cobb and an occasional sold start from Milone, LeBlanc, Or Wojo. So far Means has a 10 ERA.

I agree. This team is still quite a bit away from being truly competitive. Doesn't mean we can't enjoy some of the good times and call ups.

No, the Orioles have gone 6-7 since I posted that. They would have to go 6-2 to get to 12-9. That seems extremely unlikely. Elias has already made his decision to be a seller at the deadline.

If I had to bet on them reaching 12-9 since the thread was started, I would bet against it ...... but I have seen enough crazy things from this crazy team in this crazy season to never rule out any possibility, however remote it may seem.

I agree ...but our front office shouldn’t be kidding themselves. The fans I could care less about and should enjoys as much as we can.

    • o   You better take a diamond ring ...... you better pawn it, babe.   o
    • The write up makes me think that he is not a starter that Hyde would want to rely on every 5th day.  Maybe more of a swingman.  So that makes it more likely the O's sign a Milone type to begin the season or maybe Milone himself if they can get him for a million for one year.
    • o   That's somewhat of a rare song in which Lennon and Harrison switched on and off for the lead and rhythm. Lennon essentially plays lead for the majority of the song, while Harrison strums the chords. Then for the lead guitar solo it's Harrison playing lead, while Lennon briefly strums the chords. Then at the end of the solo, Lennon goes back to (essentially) playing lead while Harrison strums the chords.   Somewhat similarly, in the song "I'm Happy Just to Dance with You" it's Lennon playing the dominant portion of the guitar (strumming/picking extremely fast) while Harrison strums the chords ...... the difference being that unlike the case with "All My Loving", there is no guitar solo in "I'm Happy Just to Dance with You."   o
    • Brian Kenny on with Russo just now had the observation Cash let his starter go past 18 Batters Faced 5 of the first 6 games.   Obviously a 1-0 score and all the big relievers "rested" in an elimination game different circumstances last night. Mad Dog was ready for blood, but Kenny sort of headed him off at the pass surprising by giving his agreement the Snell pull was incorrect. Given the scuffles of the 4-week postseason, I'm not sure sticking with Anderson as the A reliever did him any favors.  His stat producing robot mode was clearly offline (today the inevitable reports acknowledging fatigue a factor).  Fairbanks or Castillo probably would have been better picks last night for in-inning fireman. Kenny in the spot also had the Mad Dog (pining for Snell to have the Smoltz experience) counter the Dodgers did October with a 2-man rotation, and bullpenning to take the WS clincher and survive two NLCS elimination games.  Obviously in the 162, Urias and May take their turns and do fine, but the October Corbin blueprint got drawn a bit more heavily this year. Snell is kind of an interesting gray area of is he a good enough starter to transcend the 18-batter leash as is correctly done with Cole, etc.  He has the Cy, but also like a 3.50-ish expected ERA across the couple of years including the Cy.   I think the Rays see him more JA Happ than Clayton Kershaw.
    • Really can't wait to see when some of the international guys are starting to make noise.  It's good that we've got a decently regarded system without much presence from international prospects but the system will have a real shot in the arm once a few of these guys start to produce.
    • He's really an unknown because of the bat improvements he showed early on the year are for real, he's a steal as a 3rd round pick.
    • Not sure why but I have a good feeling about him.  Maybe it's the plate discipline.
