Fastest Oriole in recent years?


Cheese Oriole

Granted that it was with two outs, but David Lough didn't even draw a throw home when he tied the game at 6. When he was about to cross the plate, the ball was still with the cutoff guy in shallow LF. As someone mentioned previously, that's why he's on the team.

Was Felix Pie faster when he was with us?

Depending on how far back we are going it would be Jeffery Hammonds if healthy when he came up early on.

Man, I was a huge fan of that guy. Such enormous potential, but so much trouble staying healthy. But he hung on for a while and made some good money playing, so in the long run, good for him.

That's what speed does. Didn't Buck say Lough time to first base is the fastest he has seen?

Yeah he was my favorite player when he came up. He was a huge case stealer at Stanford but with his knee issues didn't get to see him as that in Baltimore. I believe in High School he ran a 4.3 40 yard dash.

Yeah Nolan reimold when healthy use to be the fastest to first a few years ago in all of baseball.

Curtis Goodwin was very fast as well. I think lot depends if you taking fast or quick. Many times a base stealer has to be more quick then fast. The key to stealing a base for anyone with speed is reading the pitcher and then accelerating quickly. Most of the top base stealers were not the fastest guys but got a great first few steps.

    • I love that we have so many young assets like the OP mentioned. My issue with this framework is that we still need to add a big piece or 2 to add to the core if we are going to contend for a World Series. I don’t see this roster even with all of the young adds next year being able to beat Houston, Seattle, Toronto, Dodgers, Braves, Mets next year in a short series. Don’t get me wrong I am VERY excited to have so many young promising players. But I hope there is a plan to add to this in order to compete for a championship.
    • I'm surprised to hear this from you.  I assume you're inferring how the FO feels?
    • Mountcastle has a long swing and at times swings at just about everything. I don’t think he’s anymore than a mediocre player with an occasional hot streak.
    • At first I didn’t care if Judge got to 62. Now I hope he’s stuck on 61 for the season.    The crying by Yankees fans about how we didn’t groove one so Judge can have the record #%^%#. I’m counting down, 2 games left, I hope Texas walks him 8 times.
    • I agree if we had a stud on the other side that could actually get home. But we don’t, we now have two geriatric NFL players, a guy trying to return from a serious injury, and a rookie that will try to make the jump to the NFL after suffering a serious injury doing draft drills. Man we have a great plan! I swear, you or I could done better than this bunch. Bisciotti needs to fire the whole bunch. They’ve outstayed their value. 
    • Same issue Clowney has.  But pressures and hurries make are still very valuable.
    • I guess it depends on if you think this year or last year is the Real Mountcastle. Last year’s numbers have him as borderline top 10 at the position. I think he’ll be closer to last year and could pop higher year to year. Top 10 1B with elite Catcher and SS/3B and you’ve got a good foundation.
