Favorite Player

Who's your favorite player not on the O's? Mine is definitely Jose Bautista. I like watching him. He's always on base. He's also taking guys deep. And he is just entertaining to watch.
I've liked Verlander for a long time, and this year I somehow managed to get him on my fantasy team as the 11th SP taken. He is definitely my guy at this point. SPs who go the distance are my baseball idols, so Halladay and King Felix are up there too.

Bautista is my favorite overall player. As for pitchers I like watching Lincecum, Verlander and Johan Santana. There is nothing like watching a pitcher just mow down an entire team and just start striking out everybody.

I'd have to go with Peter Bourjos. This kid has "Superstar" stamped on his forehead.

Which brings a question to mind: His father is an Oriole's scout. Peter went in the 10th round. His father couldn't tell us about his kid?

There are a ton of players I like, but Roy Halladay takes the prize for me. He's from a bygone era. Right now he's on his way to leading his league in complete games for the 7th time.

Current active complete game leaders:

Halladay 65

L. Hernandez 50

Sabathia 33

Wakefield 33

The guy is a Man in an era of boys.

It's hard to root against Roy Halladay, except of course when he's facing your team. He's got a bulldog mentality, wants the ball every inning, and he just keeps pitching deep every single game. Plus, he's got an ice man personality and plays the game the right way. He's not out there to show up your team on the mound with flamboyant and bombastic crap. The only way he shows up your team is in the final score.

    • If we had a 23 year old 1B prospect in AAA who put up an .860 OP with 27 homers and 106 RBI,  would you be ok with giving him a chance?
    • If Diaz is not DFA'd I'd be shocked. I suppose he could be a throw in player in some deal, but if he's on the 40-man roster when the Rule 5 draft occurs I'll be shocked. He's a guy who can't stay healthy and probably needs a change of scenery and even then, the hit tool have not improved and he still has very little plan at the plate.
    • Boy did Severino not come close to that 205 innings mark very often! lol True Roberts has improved a bit with his receiving and i have no idea how either of them frame balls though from watching, seems like Handley is pretty good and stealing strikes though AA umpires can be wildly inconsistent so that's tough to judge. Either way, as I showed, Handley bat should play better overall.  For me, Handley is 40 level prospect while Roberts is a 35.  
    • What makes you think other teams value him?
    • I don't necessarily agree with this. I think there's a good chance he's not traded and he could certainly fit in at 2B next year as an upgrade over Odor, but my point is if we are going to put him at 1B and leave him there, I'd rather trade him (if the right deal is available) as I think he brings back more value to the Orioles in a trade than in that spot. He's a highly touted prospect, but some of that is related to the fact he's expected to provide solid defense in a spot higher up the defensive spectrum than 1B. If we are looking to replace Mountcastle at 1B, I'd rather do that by bringing in someone from the outside as 1B is somewhere we can get better offensive production. In most cases, a similarly ranked 1B prospect to Westburg is expected to deliver superior offense to him as such a player would obviously also offer less value on the defensive side of the ball. 
    • +1, not sure why this is a question. Gun to my head, I'd go with Adley. He has the 1/1 pedigree and plays elite level C, a difficult position to fill. Fortunately we have a great group of young players and prospects so we can build around both plus more to come. 
    • I feel like if we make a big trade this offseason, Drew Rom will be a guy we trade away. I obviously could be wrong, but I get the feeling that other teams value him more than we do at this point.
