Delmon in the 2 hole? He's a hacker, might put a more patient guy there if you want to steal a base...

With Hardy out, is their a better 2 hole hitter? Schoop maybe?

I think the answer lies below: (career numbers of our hitters vs Nova)

Markakis - 11/34 with 1 HR, .885 OPS

Young - 5/8 with 1 HR, 1.667 OPS

Davis - 8/23 with 3 HR, 1.227 OPS

Jones - 7/35, .488 OPS

Wieters - 11/29 with 4 HR, 1.351 OPS

Cruz - 3/9 with 1 HR, 1.000 OPS

Seems like a recipe for success.

Fair enough - do you have Lough's #s vs. Nova?

Re the NYY pitcher today, I had no idea they were so desperate as to sign a female luger. And at 5'8" and 154 lbs I personally would NOT mind striking out against her.

She did win a silver medal.... the Yankees probably thought they overheard someone say she HAD a good slider, then later found out they meant she WAS a good slider.

    • You are severly discounting a lot of players from that era.  Jones, Markakis, Machado, Wieters, JJ Hardy, Davis, Britton, Tillman, Miguel Gonzalez were all core players to that special 5 year run. Chris Davis hit 197 in the 5 seasons from 2012-2016 JJ Hardy won three gold golves during that time. Zack Britton was a shut down reliever for 3 of those 5 years Chris Tillman was in our rotation for all 5 of those years and was our defacto "Ace" during that time timeout question Miguel Gonzalez was in our rotation for 4 of those years and very good for three of them Markakis was only there 2012-2014 but is absolutely a core oriole Manny Machado was a three time all star and 2 gold gloves during that time all while being one of the youngest and brightest up and coming stars in the game
    • If we're keeping Mountcastle, he had better improve his production at the plate.  We would need a lot more slugging out of he and Stowers, both.  I am hoping Rutschman hits with more power, too - especially from the right side of the plate.  The league adjusted to Henderson pretty well and his last few weeks reallytalked off from that hot start.  He needs to make his adjustments, now.  He'll be okay. 
    • Listening to your comments I made a few changes.   Now calling the list Core/Keepers. Added Mullins and Tyler Wells to the list. I hear the comments on Mountcastle but this at his age (25) with  his development defensively.  At this point he just had a bad offensive year and is likely to improve.
    • I swear it looked like he just grooved it for him.
    • Makes it look easy. Easy power... we'll take it!
    • Yeah, that's it.  Not sure Gray Rod is even part of the core yet because he hasn't even pitched in the majors.  I'm not suggesting that Elias is looking to trade him unless he is part of a trade for another core player. What was the core for the 2012-2016 Orioles.  I'm going to say it was Wieters and Jones.  I guess you could add Markakis.  The rest of the players came and went or just had a great season or 2 (Davis).  I think that was part of the problem with the 2012-2016 O's, was the core wasn't big enough and there wasn't any elite players in the core.  Did anyone regularly include Wieters, Jones and Markakis in the best players in baseball conversation. 
    • I can't consider a player at a prime offensive position putting up a .724 OPS a core player.  I would be surprised if Elias doesn't have several players in the minors who he considers possible replacements for Mountcastle.
