Not pitchers who are AAAA or 29 year olds making their mlb debuts to evaluate. Or pitchers with era over 7. How about bring up a prospect before they are 26. Evaluate those pitchers. 

Do you agree that there's a difference in what Hyde does and what the front office does?

Yeah, I just don't really care.  Frobby just posted they gave up 981 in 2019.  19 runs doesn't make a big difference, it just makes for a big shiny number.

No one would make a note of a difference between 962 runs and 981 runs.  There's hardly a difference between 981 and 1000.

After three well-pitched games with the Phillies, the O’s staff has allowed 901 runs.   So, 10 games remaining and they’d need to allow 99 runs to reach 1000.    Not likely, but you can never count this staff out.

If the Rangers stay true to form (lowest run total in AL, 581--244 runs less than the Astros), the 4 games against them should help balance out whatever extraordinary damage is wreaked during the 6 games against the AL's third and fourth highest-scoring teams, the Jays and Red Sox (both at 794, with the Red Sox having played one more game than the Jays and Rangers).

My bet would be that they don't even match the 2019 team's level of runs-against. That would require them to exceed an average of 8.1 runs per game, when even their abysmal average so far has been 5.93. Of course, averages can't predict what will happen in the small sample size of 10 games, and the Sox and Jays are playing to maintain wild card slots, so who knows....

With the shutout of the Rangers (note that they started the Philly series with one as well), the Orioles runs-against is holding steady at 901. To reach 1,000, would need to average 11 RA/G the remaining 9 games. To reach 2019's 981, 8.9 RA/G.

    • 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 Gunnar 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.
