  1. Gave you a hint on who the other centerfielder is.
  2. Dumb decision to throw to third there by Santander.
  3. Has a team in the Orioles position (competing for playoff positioning) ever traded a contributing Major League player in mid-season for the primary purpose of opening a spot for a rookie? I can't think of any precedent for that kind of deal. I think Mountcastle is a trade candidate in the offseason, but I can't see him being traded during the season. Frankly, I think the odds are under 50/50 that Mayo would outperform Mountcastle for the remainder of the 2024 season, if he was given an every day role.
  4. I am going to the game on Thursday. This is my second time at the new Yankee Stadium (sat in the bleachers in 2014 for Jeter's second to last game, wearing my O's 2014 division champions sweatshirt). I am sitting in a good seat this time and will be getting there early.
  5. Gunnar was a second rounder. The O's picked in Comp Round B in 2019 (Kyle Stowers was the pick). Norby was also a second rounder, so they have already had 3 second rounders drafted in 2019 or later reach the Majors.
  6. This is my answer too. I don't want either of them to get at-bats, if Hays is on the roster he will get more at-bats than McKenna would, ergo I would prefer McKenna on the roster.
  7. It isn't Burdick, he just got DFA'd to bring up Banuelos. Too bad the Tides are off tonight, so we can't use their lineup as evidence of who is coming up. Clearly we need someone on the ground at the Norfolk International Airport!
  8. Presumably they called up Banuelos because he was already with the team. He will undoubtedly be sent down tomorrow and it gives them flexibility to pinch hit for McCan
  9. I just signed up for FUBO and am watching it now. If you have an American Express card, check your offers as I had a $35 per month cash back offer for each of the first three months. Chase had a deal as well, bur not nearly as good. It really isn't much cheaper than cable ($100 with fees) but it is much easier to cancel without having to mess with my internet plan pricing.
  10. Kjerstad or Stowers would have hit that one further.
  11. As a 29-game plan holder I traded my Wednesday tickets, due to the weather. I avoid prescheduling any April or May night games, and go only if the weather is going to be good.
  12. Seemed like a decent man and a fine philanthropist. As a UB Law alumnus, I appreciate his donation to open the new law center and I respect that he wanted the new building named after his parents, rather than himself.
  13. Hitter every time. It is tough to ever consider a pitcher as a #1 prospect. Just look at the pitchers who have been Baseball America's #1 prospect since 1990: Daisuke Matsuzaka, Josh Beckett, Rick Ankiel, Brien Taylor, Todd Van Poppel and Steve Avery. The hitters who have been BA #1 prospects since 2010: Jackson Holliday, Gunnar Henderson, Adley Rutschman, Wander Franco, Vlad Guerrero, Jr., Ronald Acuna, Andrew Benintendi, Corey Seager, Kris Bryant, Byron Buxton, Jurickson Profar, Bryce Harper (2x) and Jason Heyward. Profar and Benintendi are the only players on that list who aren't bonafide stars (besides Holliday and Franco due to extenuating circumstances). Generational pitching talents flame out regularly. Best case scenario they win you a World Series first like Strasburg, but often times they don't.
  14. Holliday's at-bats, if he makes the team, will come at the expense of Westburg and Urias. If Holliday is on the roster, Westburg probably starts 3 games a week at third and 1 game every other week or so at second, with Holliday serving as the primary backup shortstop.
