Meoli: Baumann looks good throwing live BP

Some radar gun readings would tell us alot about his elbow health wouldnt it? 

They wouldn't hurt. I remember when I heard about Pop's lack of velocity in 2019 spring training and then at Bowie despite the good numbers, the velo was down. Then of course, boom, pop went the elbow.

I agree with both points here, but I hope such  "live" BP session is a step forward and it honestly sounds like he's about where he would be if he's totally healthy.

Right.   I was prepared to hear he was throwing long toss or on flat ground as part of a progression that would get him on a mound in a couple of weeks.   To hear he’s on a mound throwing to live batters is very good news.

AAA April vanished tonight - does that push the smart Grapefruit appearance bet to Over 1.5?

March's most anticipated random 4th inning, whensoever it may occur.   Swooning if he starts tomorrow!

Guess we just have to take it one day at a time too.

I thought most people would just assume reading or watching almost anything about the current incarnation of the Orioles is NSFW.

Hope Baumann stays healthy and pitches at OPACY at some point this season.

He says he is healthy.

What do you want him to say? He's 25 y/o trying to make a MLB roster for the first time in his career.  A significant arm injury doesn't bode well for his future, seeing he'd be 27 after a full lost year due to rehab.

I don’t see a reality in which he avoids TJS this season at some point, unfortunately.

Even this reads "hey, we see some damage.  Don't use your arm for a couple months and we'll see how it goes."  That bodes far better for a guy trying to make it to the big leagues, than having precautionary surgery for his partially torn UCL, when he was starting to make a bit of a name for himself.

Spoken like a true Orioles fan! In my mind, any good young pitcher we have is 100% slated for TJS unless, miraculously, it never happens.

    • I went Opening Day. I had a great experience.    Pros: - No traffic because the Pandemic.  - The lot under the bridge by the train was only $10 and took cash.  - No lines for the bathroom or when you enter the stadium.  - The staff there was really cool and you could tell that they were going the extra mile to make everyone comfortable.    Cons: - No Vendors in the stands. Such as beer man. (Hope Clarence is aight) - Long concession lines. Be smart and plan accordingly.  - The hand sanitizer machines were mostly empty that they had strategically placed.  Now what everyone is worried about. Mask wearing. Most people were very cool the entire time. The staff has even little paddle signs that they raise near someone to get them to put their mask on. I will say once I switched to the lower bowl at the end of the game, it was as if COVID never existed. The people in the cheap seats were 95% wearing masks at all times. Behind 1st base was about 25%. 
    • It seems like that the only possible way that the O’s (or most teams for that matter) can compete is by building an elite farm system.  Given how hard and how slow that process is, I wanted to ask the O’s experts on here a few simple question for discussion:   1. how long would you estimate that it takes for a team to go from a mediocre/poor farm system, to a system that has produced enough major league talent to win in the AL east?  Additionally, how long in your opinion does the pro club need to suck while building the farm. 2. is there a team that you would prefer that the O’s model their approach after?  Is it Tampa?  Toronto? St. Louis?  I think the Tampa model is the most brutally efficient, but I can’t see many people truly being happy with that model in the long haul (getting rid of good players while value is high, rarely spending a dollar in FA). 3. do you like the financial model of baseball as opposed to other professional leagues?  Baseball has always been my favorite sport, but it really seems to favor the larger market teams in the end.  Not that smaller market teams can’t compete, it’s just that every year it seems the larger market teams win.  I know there are some poor large market orgs, but I personally get disinterested when I see how imbalanced the competitive landscape can be at times.

    • Contracts like Davis really hurts the game overall more than it hurts the individual team. Typically teams that have a bad contract just pick up and move on from the player...meanwhile the fans hold a grudge towards the player. Baltimore is doing a disservice to the game by not releasing him and moving on.
