Sure why not.

The O's playing well over .500 baseball for a whole month seemed impossible just 2 months ago, so I think it's safe to say anything is possible at this point. Especially since while it's only the first inning, lester isn't looking* untouchable.

*well, sounding. can't watch the game on TV where i live.

Nice piece of hitting by Jonesie. Gotta love having Brady in the booth too, the man knows his hitting and does a great job of explaining it too. I really, really enjoyed the LAA series with Palmer and Brady both in the booth.

Ain't this perty. :D

By the way, what are the chances of Brady being the Hitting Coach next year?

Not sure, but if he does, I'm calling Roberts hitting 50 bombs :D:D

This is so fun. The Orioles the last 30 games have been such a pleasure. I'm loving it.

Isn't it nice to actually care to watch baseball in August and September?

    • Finally, the Blue Jays: Aaron Hill, 1:13 2003, 24.4 rWAR Kevin Pillar, 32:18 2011, 16.0 rWAR Noah Syndergaard, 1:38 2010, 15.7 rWAR (FA comp) Marcus Stroman, 1:22 2012, 14.7 rWAR Yan Gomes, 10:19 2009, 14.0 rWAR Sean Marcum, 3:13 2003, 13.4 rWAR Adam Lind, 3:12 2004, 12.7 rWAR (FA comp) Jake Marisnik, 3:24 2009, 10.9 rWAR (FA comp) Ricky Romero, 1:6 2005, 9.9 rWAR Aaron Sanchez, 1:34 2010, 8.9 rWAR (FA comp) Casey Janssen, 4:16 2004, 7.4 rWAR Brett Cecil, 1:38 2007, 6.6 rWAR (FA comp) Matthew Boyd, 6:9 2013, 6.6 rWAR Daniel Norris, 2:14 2011, 6.2 rWAR (FA comp) Anthony DeSciafani, 6:18 2011, 6.0 rWAR Ryan Roberts, 18:13 2003, 5.8 rWAR Sam Dyson, 4:11 2010, 5.6 rWAR Kendall Graveman, 8:9 2013, 5.2 rWAR Aaron Loup 9:19 2009, 4.9 rWAR Gabe Gross, 1:15 2001, 4.6 rWAR Cavan Biggio, 5:26 2016, 4.6 rWAR Travis Snider, 1:14 2006, 4.4 rWAR Joe Musgrove, 1s:46 2012, 4.3 rWAR Jesse Litsch, 24:16 2004, 3.9 rWAR Dave Bush, 2:14 2002, 3.6 rWAR Ryan Goins, 4:19 2009, 3.4 rWAR Ryan Schimpf, 5:19 2009, 3.3 rWAR Ryan Tepera, 19:19 2009, 3.1 rWAR Bo Bichette, 2:25 2016, 3.1 rWAR Mark Rzepcynski, 5:21 2007, 3.0 rWAR Brandon League, 2:15 2001, 2.7 rWAR Jon Berti, 18:18 2012, 2.3 rWAR Eric Thames, 7:17 2008, 2.1 rWAR Danny Jansen, 16:9 2013, 2.1 rWAR Ryan Borucki, 15:17 2012, 2.0 rWAR J.P. Arencibia. 1:21 2007, 1.9 rWAR Dustin McGowan, 1:33 2000, 1.6 rWAR (FA comp) Chad Jenkins, 1:20 2009, 1.4 rWAR Tim Locastro, 13:9 2013, 1.4 rWAR Vinnie Chulk, 12:18 2000, 1.3 rWAR Danny Barnes, 35:11 2010, 1.1 rWAR Danny Farquhar, 10:17 2008, 1.0 rWAR   Total: 42 players, 257.1 rWAR 2000-09: 25 players, 151.3 rWAR 2010-20: 17 players, 105.8 rWAR   Tons of quantity here, though the Blue Jays have lacked the big score.   I think Biggio and Bichette may change that, though.
    • First off, thank you for admitting that Nunez is incredibly one dimensional and has almost no meaningful value. That's progress, I suppose. Anyway, the Orioles DFA'd Nunez with the intention to release him if no trade offer materialized from the other 29 MLB clubs, and, lo and behold, no trade offer materialized. Literally any other MLB FO could have added him to their roster for a bag of balls but they all decided that they would rather have the bag of balls than Renato Nunez at his projected $2-4 million dollar price tag. When you consider that he doesn't hit for average, doesn't get on base a lot, strikes out a lot, and can't run or field, it's really not too hard to see why. And that's without even getting into his underlying metrics, which as another poster already pointed out, are also pretty mediocre. His hard and weak contract rates in particular paint a rather gloomy long term outlook, and I am sure that Elias and the other 29 FOs were well aware of those things (and much, much more) too if Joe Schmoe fans like us can access that type of data. If all 30 MLB FOs and their analytics departments unanimously agree that a player costs more than he is worth, which is exactly what happened in Renato Nunez's case, I'm afraid I'll have to defer to their judgement over some rando with an axe to grind on a fansite's message board.  The money certainly was a major factor in Nunez's release, which is more understandable than usual in the dismal current economic landscape where legitimately good players like Brad Hand, Kolten Wong, and Charlie Morton had their reasonably priced options declined by currently contending teams, but roster construction, underlying metrics (as mentioned above), and his general mediocrity were also likely considerations.  I would personally much rather have the DH spot regularly available for Mancini, Mountcastle, and Stewart depending on the particular needs of the day anyway, but YMMV.
    • Here are the Rays:   Evan Longoria, 1:3 2006, 56.5 rWAR David Price, 1:1 2007, 39.4 rWAR James Shields, 16:6 2000, 31.0 rWAR Kevin Kiermaier, 31:16 2010, 27.3 rWAR B.J. Upton, 1:2 2002, 16.8 rWAR Desmond Jennings, 10:3 2006, 13.5 rWAR Jason Hammel, 10:2 2002, 12.8 rWAR Alex Cobb, 4:3 2006, 12.5 rWAR Jeremy Hellickson, 4:8 2005, 11.7 rWAR Blake Snell, 1s:52 2011, 11.4 rWAR Wade Davis, 3:3 2004, 11.1 rWAR John Jaso, 12:1 2003, 10.8 rWAR Rocco Baldelli, 1:6 2000, 10.2 rWAR Steven Vogt, 12:1 2007, 7.7 rWAR Jake McGee, 5:4 2004, 7.4 rWAR Brandon Lowe, 3:12 2015, 5.6 rWAR Derek Dietrich, 2:29 2010, 5.3 rWAR (FA comp) Matt Moore, 8:1 2007, 5.1 rWAR Jeff Niemann, 4:4 2004, 4.3 rWAR Jonny Gomes, 8:3 2001, 3.5 rWAR Tim Beckham, 1:1 2008, 3.5 rWAR Delmon Young, 1:1 2003, 3.2 rWAR Chad Gaudin, 34:3 2001, 2.4 rWAR Joey Gathright, 32:3 2001, 2.2 rWAR Elijah Dukes, 3:2 2002, 1.9 rWAR Merrill Kelly 8:16 2010, 1.8 rWAR Dylan Floro, 13:24 2012, 1.7 rWAR Jake Cronenworth, 7:13 2015, 1.4 rWAR Ryne Stanek 1:29 2013, 1.3 rWAR Adam Liberatore, 21:16 2010, 1.0 rWAR Joey Rickard, 9:24 2012, 1.0 rWAR   Total: 31 players, 325.3 rWAR 2000-09: 21 players, 267.5 rWAR 2010-20: 10 players, 57.8 rWAR   I'm a little surprised they haven't been stronger over the last decade.
    • Honestly a pretty sad list after #5 ....Really most think that Wieters underachieved , Britton was called a TOR  that ended up in the pen because of durability, and Arrieta was god awful while he was here. Really, this list describes the drafting and developing failures of the Baltimore Orioles in the 21st century!
    • Waiver claim was how he got here so its not like we're talking about greatness. Maybe this means Mountcastle is moving to 1B or DH. 
    • Now the Yankees: Brett Gardner, 3:29 2005, 42.8 rWAR Austin Jackson, 8:29 2005, 21.9 rWAR Aaron Judge, 1:32 2013, 20.1 rWAR Ian Kennedy, 1:21 2006, 16.7 rWAR (FA comp) David Robertson, 17:28 2006, 15.8 rWAR Tyler Clippard, 9:27 2003, 15.5 rWAR Mark Melancon, 9:28 2006, 11.8 rWAR Dellin Betances, 8:28 2006, 11.2 rWAR Phil Hughes, 1:23 2004, 11.0 rWAR (FA comp) Joba Chamberlain, 1:41 2006, 7.6 rWAR Adam Warren, 4:28 2008, 6.7 rWAR David Phelps, 14:28 2007, 6.1 rWAR George Kontos, 5:28 2006, 3.8 rWAR Shane Greene, 15:24 2009, 3.5 rWAR Jordan Montgomery, 4:17 2014, 3.5 rWAR Jeff Karstens, 19:27 2003, 3.2 rWAR Jake Cave, 6:28 2011, 2.9 rWAR Mike Dunn, 33:28 2004, 2.8 rWAR John Brebbia, 30:28 2011, 2.5 r WAR Caleb Smith, 14:29 2013, 2.5 rWAR Zach McAllister, 3:28 2006, 2.5 rWAR Tommy Kahnle, 5:30 2010, 2.0 rWAR Phil Coke, 26:24 2002, 2.0 rWAR Ben Gamel, 10:29 2010, 1.1 rWAR James Pazos, 13:29 2012, 1.0 rWAR   Total: 25 players, 199.5 rWAR 2000-09: 17 players, 163.9 rWAR 2010-20 8 players, 35.6 rWAR   Not much there,  but then again, they're always drafting low.
    • The discrepancy is even worse when you think about how our draft picks work, with I think two exceptions, far better than theirs. It’s hard to blame one person, because the problem is over so long, but boy somebody is to blame
