If we're going by Age, regular plug that Baumann is older than Kremer too.

Both Fenway and the Yankees lineup daunting for LHP, but I guess I get spotting Zimmermann in first while he is running great, and against the weaker team.

For 2B waiver wire wheel, saw Rangers manager recently gave non-committal quote about Rougned making the team.

Rougned has terrible defense and doesn’t hit well. Hard pass.

Meanwhile, Zimm is out here doing his best left-handed David Hess impression. 3 outs and 2 homers so far. 

Need to remind him that making the team is not the ultimate goal…

What are you talking about, did you see that shot he put on Bautista?

Odor is in fact done with Texas. Wonder where he ends up and whether Texas gets anything for him. Gotta imagine the O's would at least inquire with their second base situation.

He just turned 27, and was good as recently as 2018 so he will get a chance somewhere, the Orioles may be the only team that could potentially offer a starting MLB spot.

Not sure if its a sign of the COVID times, an indication of the impact of not showing ST games on MASN, or maybe I am just not the fan I used to be.  But here we are 3 days from Opening Day, and for the first time in my nearly 47 years on this planet, I'm not sure I could tell you ten guys on the Orioles opening day roster.

Well this thread alone mentions all 17 guys left with a shot at spot on the presumptive 14 man pitching staff.   You must have closed your eyes while you scrolled by those posts.

Rangers fans seem thrilled, lol. I still can't believe he hit 30 bombs while batting .205 in 2019.

A power output as empty as that of Rio Ruiz.

    • I was a little disappointed that Junior Lara, who got a late start in the DSL but did well there, wasn’t invited to Instructs.   I still expect he’ll play in the FCL next year.   
    • How far is Bellinger from free agency?  It would be nice to get him to sign to an extension, but I don't see a reason for him to do so.  If he even partially rebounds, he would want a $100 mill deal. 
    • My wife and I decided to watch this HBO miniseries after it won several Emmys, including Kate Winslet for best actress in a limited series (7 episodes each about an hour).   It’s fantastic.   It’s about a police detective (the title character Mare) in a small, run down Pennsylvania town, where everyone knows everyone and half the people are related.  Mare has a lot of baggage of her own, slowly revealed as she tries to solve a murder that happens in the town.  Winslet is fantastic in the role, and the whole cast is great.  There are plot twists right to the end.  Highly recommend it.   
    • Hey Sportsfan; Thank you for the compliments.  So there are 3 DSL guys in Florida now. 17 year old Samuel Basallo received $1.3 million.  The biggest bonus of the Elias Era.  He was expected to sign with the Yankees.  He was very good batting .239/.338/.410 for a .748 OPS.  5 homers, 8 doubles.  Now in Instructional League.  Led Orioles 1 in homers and RBIs 17 year oldShortstop Maikol Hernandez received $1.2 million.  He hit .231/.340/.308 for a .647 OPS.  No homers, only 4 for 7 in steals. He is in the Instructional League so they still believe in him. 17 year old 3rd baseman Anderson De Los Santos received $350,00. He hit a robust..324/.409/.495 for a .905 OPS.  He also filled in at short, but made to many errors.  A little error prone at 3rd, but he's a converted shortstop.  Only 18 strikeouts in 127 at bats, 15 walks.  6 doubles, 2 triples, 3 homers, 3 for 4 steals.  Tremendous 1st year, now in the Instructructional League.   17 year old speedy centerfielder Junior Lara received $160,00.  Batted .344/.434/.500 in only 77 at bats.  So he missed half the season with an injury. 17 year old Rightfielder Wilmer Feliciano received $400,000.  He struggled with strikeouts and groudouts.  Hit .202/.312/.353 for a .665 OPS. Hit 4 doubles, 1 triple, 4 homers.  Also 3 for 3 in steals.  119 at bats, 45 strikeouts, 70% groundouts to 30% flyouts.  Terrible ratios for a big-time power hitter.  I would think his swing can be corrected. I was disappointed in Orioles 1.  13 and 39 overall.  With all those bonus babies, still a young team. Orioles 2 was a competitive team with modest bonus players.  25 wins 30 losses. Their most intriguing player was 18 year old Shortstop Frederick Benscome. He was a late Class of 2019 signee.  6 feet 160lbs left handed power from a shortstop. 142 at bats, 6 doubles,4 triples, 2 homers, 11 walks, only 18 strikeouts.  10 steals in 13 attempts. 60% flyouts to 40 % ground outs.  I would have thought he should be in Instructional League teaching others how to make contact and put the ball in the air !!!!    
    • I'm not a big supporter of former major league stars as managers.  The history of baseball is full of players who were great as players and failures as managers.  Let Adam prove himself in the minors somewhere before getting a manager job with the O's.  I hate to look back on past manager searches, where the guy's main qualification seems to be that he played for the O's.
