Who is your favorite player right now

Several ace pitchers (rather see a 1-0 pitcher's duel ANYtime!) but I'd have to say Ryan Z. Made some tremendous plays against us last Nat's series. Helping out my fantasy Isotopes too.

I hope you aren't relying on him too much with that .600 OPS!

I'd have to say my favorite player outside of the Orioles is a toss-up between Verlander, Strasburg, and Harper. I'll always be a fan of Verlander since he's local to central Virginia.

I've done a total 360...after that blown kiss after a minor league HR I hated Bryce Harper and his ugly moustache. After seeing how he plays at the ML level I've got to say...he is my favorite non Oriole to watch play.

:) Heh. Yeah, I tried to bench him today... Couldn't fill 3B. Scott Rolen off the DL wasn't in the lineup. So I picked up Zimm's rib in an O's winning cause! Played Pearce too. Tho he did nothing.

I can't stand him and his attitude and his face! But yeah... He's a pretty special player. :eek:

    • We’ll always have the no-hitter…
    • Do we know what his velocity was today? I know he doesn't light up the gun but was he at his normal? 
    • Longterm he’s probably that missing RH SU/MR that we’ve been looking for since the Fuji trade.  It’s probably Suarez vs Ramírez vs Tate for 1-2 bullpen spots. Wells and one of Irvin/Means could be in the bullpen mix as well.  Depth is good to have. I wouldn’t sleep on Ramirez either. Elias has shown a knack from adding relievers through trade or waivers. 
    • There's not a single high level prospect on the team he pitched against tonight and even the one out he got was crushed
    • Let’s tap the brakes on his move to the bullpen. His stuff plays and he can get outs. Best of all, he doesn’t walk anyone. He challenges hitters and gets weak contact. With our defense, I’d rather him give up the occasional double or flared hit to the outfield than to see walks. Keep him in the starting rotation until he proves he doesn’t belong. Wells and Irvin both have experience in the pen and frankly for Irvin, though I love him, has a real tough time throwing strikes at times.    anyway, let’s see what the old dog can do.
    • I could see Suarez sticking in a bullpen role long term with the movement on his fastball. Also he might be able to throw a 2 to 3 more MPH harder not having to worry about trying to pitch six innings. The Orioles have done a good job finding pitchers who weren't expected to do much in recent years and it would be cool if Suarez is another find.
    • I mean, heres where we really find out if Holliday is cut out for the majors and if he has the character to fight through major adversity right off the bat right?  Saw a good point that there was a guy previously that started 4 of 55, and that was ole #8.  Mike Trout didnt get his batting average up to .200 until May 31st of his first season.  Ideal? Absolutely not.  But when the franchises all-time hits leader started with the same slump its something to pay attention to.
