11. Steven Brault - LHP : Some scouts feel a good comp for him is Troy Patton though others think he could stick at the back end of the rotation.

12. Tyler Wilson - RHP : With the Orioles rotation filled for 2015, he'll need an injury to see much big league time in 2015 but in the meantime he will provide solid starting pitching depth in Norfolk.

13. Tim Berry - LHP : Although Berry could end up a back of the rotation starter, he could end up a real weapon out of the pen. If healthy, he'll start 2015 in Norfolk and could see major league action as well.

14. Stephen Tarpley - LHP : When it comes to pure stuff from a left-hander within the organization, no one can touch Tarpley's fastball curveball combination.

15. David Hess - RHP : Some scouts feel he's best suited for a reliever role though the Orioles will run him out as as starter in 2015 and should have a better idea of what they got after next season.

Tony, I'm curious why you ranked Brault the highest in this group. The scouting report didn't wow me (compared to the others in this bracket).

On the other hand, I liked what you had to say about Tyler Wilson.

Brault has had the most success so far in his career and although his fastball is not impressive, he's a three pitch lefty with good command. If things fall right, he has a decent chance to stick as a starter. Honestly, I could build a case for any of these guys in any order. Sometimes when guys are close, I go with my gut feeling or allow the statistics to be the quantifier.

    • If you’d asked me a few weeks ago, I probably would have told you that I didn’t care if Aaron Judge hit homer 60, 61 or 62 against us.    I’m not sure what’s changed, but in the words of the great Mox from Varsity Blues, “I say, ‘**** that.’”  I do not want to see our guys pitching to him this weekend.    I do not want to see Judge (who, for the record, I don’t have much of a problem with) celebrating at our expense. I don’t want to see his teammates celebrating at our expense. I sure as hell don’t want to see their fans celebrating at our expense.    Nothing would please me more this weekend than seeing Yankee fans crying about how we walked Judge 12-15 times over three games and how they bought tickets to see him hit #62 and blah blah blah.  Nothing would please me more than, after years of seeing Judge destroy our pitching, giving him absolutely nothing to hit and having him stand on first base all weekend while the boos rain down. I want us to be the bad guys. I want us to be the killjoys.  I do not want Hyde to give in. And even if he does have our guys pitch to Judge, I want our guys to be smart and throw everything in the dirt. Or airmail it over the home plate umpire.    I doubt it happens.  I’m sure some poor sap like Baumann or Baker or Krehbiel or  Reed will go down in history as the sucker who grooved a belt high fastball to Judge for #62. He’ll be on replays forever.  And after the game he’ll give some stock answer about “wanting to challenge him” or something which is silly because our pitching hasn’t ever been a challenge for Judge.    So, Hyde and/or Elias, if you’re reading, just walk Judge all weekend long. Make the Yankees and their fans miserable. Be the bad guys. Don’t let anyone have fun at our expense. It’s a new era for Orioles baseball, we’re no longer a laughingstock. No longer a team to set records against. No longer a team to beat up on.  Do not give in.    Milligan, out. 
    • I think it's pretty simple... they like him more than Tyler Nevin as a backup 1B, and they don't trust anyone else on the team to play first base. There were reports of Santander and Gunnar taking reps at first but nothing saying that the results were passable. I'm guessing they didn't like what they saw.
    • Not to mention this was AFTER Hays ruined the chances last night by GIDP against Barnes and like clockwork he repeats the feat. So yea Mullins just might have been a better option there.
    • Well, Chirinos did hit a homer!  
    • I feel like Elias has decided recently that they are out of it, and now its about securing better odds for the draft lottery by putting out lineups like today's.
