Actually Nick's path reminds me a little bit of Paul Blair. In 1969, Blair was 25, he hit 28 HRs and .285. He somewhat mysteriously declined each of the next three years with BA down to .267, then ..262, then .233 with HRs declining to 18, 10 and 8. He was still a premier defensive CF but he gradually became more of a plate liability.

I thought Blair got beaned and was never the same?

That's marvelous.

How much more money is Nick making this year than a guy like Marlon Byrd, who's 7 years older and OPS'ing 150+ points higher?

I'm so excited to hear this one....

Byrd is making $700K this year lol. Arguably having the best year of his career at age 36. What a game.

Yes, because this one year out of all of his seasons his IFFB% is double the rest of his career. Statistical anomolies = Garrett Atkins, roger that.

Well obviously we are only talking about Garrett Atkins' one year here so I'm not sure what your point is. Markakis is popping up a lot, Roy Firestone said he's popping up a lot, the numbers agree. If anything Roy is wrong that Garrett Atkins was ever Captain Pop-up.

But as long as we're making comparisons:

Garrett Atkins 2010 ISO: .071

Nick Markakis 2013 ISO: .089

Garrett Atkins 2010 BB%: 7.9%

Nick Markakis 2013 BB%: 7.7%

Markakis is handily winning the BABIP race by about 25 points, driven by his far-superior LD%.

I have noticed the past two nights that Bordick is a real ass kisser. Half the stuff he says are flat out lies, and the other things he says are just plain wrong. His praise of Buck is borderline ridiculous. He is going to have to have his nose surgically removed from Buck's hind parts soon!

More like the past two years. Bordick is a giant homer. I've never once heard him criticize the Orioles in any way.

It's even worse when he's paired with Hunter, who's even more of a homer. They need to learn that it's OK to say something negative about the Orioles once in a while.

I'm watching, but right now I'm not listening. I hear them, but I don't retain.

I hope he is hurt and I am not trying to be funny. He slugged over .500 in May. .305 in June, .326 in July and an amazing .269 in August. Markakis has 11 extra base hits since June that is 79 GAMES!

    • ordash 12:45 Jordan Westburg gets overshadowed in the strong Orioles system. Do you think he can be an everyday guy by year's end?   Eric A Longenhagen 12:46 I have more a 45 on him because the defense is kinda bleh. Might be out-talented by the others. Still a good player, just ideally want him to have a lefty/defense caddy. Think J Ortiz was more an omnisituational guy, Westy has more juice tho.
    • Nervous Flyball Pitcher 12:41 Can science explain why multiple projection systems (ZiPS and Steamer) think Coby Mayo will play above average 3B defense? I would be thrilled, but those conclusions are the direct opposite of what prospect writers say. I think Longenhagen/Taruskin have projected him at RF since last year.   Eric A Longenhagen 12:43 Yeah, evaluating minor league defense visually (when you can actually do it thoroughly) will give you way better results than a proj system is going to. MAybe proprietary minor league kinatrax and statcast type stuff could help you model defense if you had access to that data.
    • Offensively.     Chone was fun in that 3B was his best position - B-Ref Rdrs thinks he was a minus everywhere else. We hope EBJ puts a Brooks Robinson kind of lock on CF gold gloves (sorry, Julio).    He barely has to hit a lick if he can do that. Luhnow's Astros grew Myles Straw for the league as one data point for the Club wanting to play that kind of player, and I'd imagine on the scouting scale EBJ does everything Straw does, just much better.      Straw's put out just shy of 2 fWAR/year from 2021-2023 while hitting 244/315/307 and being on today's Mount Rushmore of CF defense. Probably only Beavis or Butthead could comment on the Orioles offense if EBJ ever leads the league in walks as part of this group.
    • Cool concept but the head looks misaligned on the body.
    • Always cool to look back at these old lists. 2023 was an interesting year for the group listed here with a few of them who achieved early career success (Mancini, Bundy, Givens) likely fading out of the league, while a few who struggled for a long time posted career best years (Scott, Heim, Harvey).
    • What's wild is that sometime early in winter, this one appeared in my feed on Facebook. Someone must have known about the upcoming design by several months. It's so weird, I almost want one. Almost. It's over ten dollars cheaper, too.  It's called a "tattoo design".  https://stuntinhq.com/products/oriole-two-tone-corduroy-hat    
    • Tim 12:34 Do you think Colton Cowser is anything more than a platoon guy?   Eric A Longenhagen 12:35 I do not
