I can live with bad.  It is just this historic bad that gets me down.  

100%. Historic bad with better options that might as well be getting some experience and not hurting their own future.

But have someone in the media point it out and folks go mad defending them.

I’m personally incensed that someone would dare write and article and not cover every single nuance and make it seem as if this plan isn’t foolproof.

Got Jamai  up and Mateo playing short. It's a start...

 It’s only four innings, on pace for 36 runs

No that’s not quite right they’re on pace for 27.

But after a certain point, who is counting.

I have the sound muted. What'd they play?

I was afraid someone would ask.  I heard the riff in the background and just can't place it in a song right now

    • The Os don’t need a 40 man spot right now.  
    • Agree with all of this.  I think Tony has Gunner here. Agree on Hall as well.  I had him above Rodriguez for a long time, but just due to the fact that Rodriguez has been healthy I bumped him above.  A lot of risk with Hall for sure, but the upside there is perennial CY contender if he can harness everything.
    • I really have no idea where Kjerstad should be ranked.  I’m guessing that the next 2 are Hall and Westburg. At that point, you have Stowers, Norby and Kjerstad, along with guys like Pinto, Baumann and Bradish.  (Not to mention, a guy like Basillo) I would guess Kjerstad gets into the top 10.
    • I’m going to stick with the idea that Hall was ranked lower than 5th last year and after being hurt, he didn’t play enough to jump up the list. I think Hall will be 6th.  Im going Gunner here. Quite frankly, a healthy Hall has a case to be #2 but we need to see it first.
    • I don’t quite understand the concern over Mayo’s size, and why some folks believe that will keep him from sticking at 3rd base. He’s listed at 6’5” / 215lbs. I believe that’s an inch taller and about ten pounds heavier than Cal Ripken Jr. was when he was a rookie at 3rd in 1982. Cal’s size never seemed an impediment to him defensively while he was at 3rd, and it certainly didn’t appear to hurt him when he moved to the more demanding position at SS.    Right now Austin Riley is playing pretty good 3rd base for the Braves, and he’s listed at 6’3” / 240lbs. If somebody his size can stick there for a World Series contender why can’t Mayo do the same for us? 
    • 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.
