PECOTA projects the Orioles record at 74-88

According to the Clubhouse Confidential on MLB Network, PECOTA projects the Orioles record at 74-88.

So we have Vegas giving us the over/under at 76.5 and PECOTA projected 74 wins.

I know this has been beat into the ground, but it does goes to show that besides some optimism from the fans and organization, most people predict a deep dive for the Orioles in 2013.

Me, I think we're about an 82 win team give or take 4-5 wins.

97 wins. I'm confident. We have ten guys about to come into their own. Guys just entering their prime who will improve their performance from last year. I've been playing and coaching this game for over 40 years and I have a feeling about this team. I fully acknowledge that most will think I'm an unabashed homer who shouldn't be listened to. That's fine with me. There is a reason Wieters wants to be a career Oriole. It isn't because he wants to win 74 games each year. It isn't because he thinks the pitching staff will be found wanting. Who better then a catcher to give you an idea of what to expect from a team?

I have no reason to believe that we could lose more games with this team than you expect.

That's odd. I'm wearing a #32 t-shirt right now. Under a sweat shirt...

"O"r we could have matured into a dominant force... Gotta play tough again against the AL East, or 74 could be a reality. Pitching & defense wins ! However, big years from Wieters, Hardy, Davis & Reimold will sure help the cause. I'm assuming we'll get what we need from Kakes & AJ. So, we shall see. BUCKle up.

I love the bullpen! Usually pens are some tarot card impossibility. Year to year. But I feel great with this whole group. Too many arms, I dread the day when one of them has to be lost.

Whatever Drungo says, I say! :slytf: (78 - 88 wins)

:agree:

I think we are right on last year, only getting there a little easier. 88-94 wins. I am really confident that

the pitching staff takes a step forward, and good pitching and defense for the entire year to me translates

into at least a few more easy wins than they had to pull out last year.

I'm certainly not expecting the O's to win the division but every team in the AL East has both a lot of question marks and a lot of talent. I won't be surprised if the Orioles are 4th or 5th in the division and I won't be surprised if they're 1st or 2nd. This is the most parity the division has seen in some years, maybe ever. I'm incredibly excited about this season because the division is going to be a clustercuss. Whether the Orioles make it to the playoffs or not, I'm sure they'll bloody their share of noses. Can't wait!

    • Why would they? What's in it for them?
    • Would the O's and the Jays both have to agree to play on Thursday? I'm not sure they would agree to it.
    • I bet tomorrow the 5 sitting today will start   Chirinos  C  Nevin  3rd Odor  2nd  Stowers  RF Mountcastle   1B    Two of this bunch sits  * my guess* Adley Gunnar  Mullins  Hays * Mateo * Santander    Will not start plus 2 from above Aguilar  Vavra McKenna 
    • Because you can’t see the obvious.  There’s no reason to talk to you. You aren’t a genuine person to discuss things with.  It’s easier to just laugh at you.
    • I agree, but ideally Henderson stays at third while we sign Turner to play short (hoping we have a shot since he may prefer east coast). Turner, Mullins, Henderson is a nice top 3. 
    • Elias has put together the Core that he hopes will carry the O's to a World Series.   Some of us are trying to trade this core away but I don't think Elias will. Who is the Core: 1.1 Catcher Adley Rutschman (24) 2nd rounder SS/3B  Gunnar Henderson (21) 1st rounder LF  Colton Cowser  (22) - sometime in 2023  30th pick  Jordan Westburg (23) -  2B/3B/1B to start 2023  1st rounder 1B Ryan Mountcastle (25) - Drafted by Duquette  2nd rounder  RF  Kyle Stowers  (24) 4th rounder  2B/SS/3B   Joey Ortiz   (24) -sometime in 2023 2nd rounder  DH/2B  Connor Norby (22) - sometime in 2023 1.1   Jackson Holliday  SS/CF (18)  -  In 2025 1st  rounder  Grayson Rodriguez SP (22) - Start of 2023 1st rounder  DL Hall (24)  -  Sometime as a starter in 2023 Dean Kremer (26)   Kyle Bradish (26) Felix Bautista (27) Cionel Perez (26) These are the  players that the O's are building around.  Not trading.   Sure there are players needed to supplement these guys. And not all of them will make it but this is the direction I think they are headed. They don't have a player that can replace CF Cedric Mullins yet but as these players make the majors the current players will be traded to resupply the minors.  To start 2023 they will need Santander and Hays until the core players are ready. This does not mean that players, especially pitchers, can not be added to fill in where needed.  I just don't think these core players are likely to be traded. JMO          
    • You're right, this must be a series that was originally scheduled for the first week. Teams with open-air stadiums, like the Orioles, typically schedule their opening series for three games in four days, with an off-date between the first and second games.  This is so that if there's a rainout on the original date of Opening Day, fans who bought tickets for Opening Day can use them when the game is made up on the next day. The Mariners, who didn't have to worry about a rainout, were free to schedule four games in  four days, so apparently that's what they did.  And with that series having been postponed due to the labor dispute, now they only have three days to get those four games in. Ironically, the fact that they have a roof on their stadium is a big part of the reason why they have to play a doubleheader now.
