How do they vote? Is it like an "all in favor say aye" thing, or do they vote via anonymous ballots? Was Davis allowed to vote even though he was suspended? If he was in the room when they voted, I'm sure there wasn't any discussion as to whether or not he would receive a full share.

It is the Union members on the September roster that are active that get to vote. I do not know when it occurs.

When the Orioles players met in September to vote on how they would divvy up whatever playoff money they would receive from the 2014 postseason, they made a point to remember late public relations director Monica Barlow.

In fact, they made two points.

Although the specific breakdown isn’t released to the public, one source who had direct knowledge of how the playoff shares were divided said the Orioles players chose two different ways to remember Barlow, who died in February at age 36 after a protracted battle with lung cancer. The players assigned one cash award to Barlow’s estate and made a separate donation to the LUNGevity Foundation, which provides lung cancer research, educational programs and support for lung cancer patients. Barlow was heavily involved with the charity.

Although the source would not reveal the exact amount of the two awards, they were characterized as “very significant donations.” Overall, the players voted to present 36 cash awards; typically most are given to support staff members who helped all season.

But the source said the players were in agreement that they wanted to use some of the money in a way that Barlow would appreciate. “It was an opportunity to do some good, and the guys seized it.”

    • Aram loves the pitch metrics on Povich and McDermott. Was effusive in his spring podcast going through Os top prospects. 
    • Let’s also give the org credit for the O’Hearn pickup.  He was part of last night’s lineup.  For that matter, they picked up Mateo too.  
    • Thank you.  Not sure how easy for someone who may have been doing it for years and someone who’s been talented enough to make it work.   Someone posted a video of Freddie Freeman and Holliday to show similarities but, to me, it just showed how different their lead foot was.  Freeman’s was closed and perfectly in line and parallel to his back foot.  Hollidays foot pointed out and the foot towards 2B position.  I questioned it.  Other guys, who admittedly know more, said it was no problem.  Again, he might be able to become a HOF with those mechanics.  I’ve just never seen a good ML hitter hit that way. From that early January thread “I guess it depends on your definition of “step in the bucket”.  His stride foot definitely doesn’t go straight.  Pretty easy to see where his foot is in relation to the batters box and how much further away it is when it lands.  It doesn’t seem to affect him negatively though.  Interestingly enough, Freeman’s stride foot goes perfectly straight.” Edited January 6 by RZNJ
    • He allowed only one batted ball over 95 MPH, commanding his cutter particularly well in this one. I think the cutter is the most critical pitch for Povich to take the next step. He’s never had issues getting punch outs, he needs to be able to pitch in the zone without relying too much on his fastball. It’s also a key weapon against RHP - if you don’t have a true plus breaking ball or fastball that can overcome the platoon splits (which I don’t think Povich does), you can only make it as a LHP SP through the strength of your cutter and changeup, which are more reverse/neutral splits.  His changeup is probably not good enough to carry him on its own, so it’s the cutter that brings the whole pitch mix together.  
    • Agree he steps in the bucket. In theory should be a relatively easy fix. 
    • His back or shoulder might give out first. Hardly any talented pitcher retires without some sort of serious injury recorded.
