Congrats Dip! There is a rumor circulating where the newest moderator has to purchase a round of drinks and apps before the next OH hangout game.:D

It's more than a rumor. It's part of the well-known, unwritten rule about promotions. Right after the part that says (though not in writing) that a baseball-related employer has to release an employee from his contract if he has an opportunity for a promotion. So,:new_beer:

Awesome! I'm not the low man on the totem pole anymore.

Great, now I'm the middle child that no one cares about.

Just so everyone knows, Dipper is a cool guy and I call him my friend. He's one of the few OHers that I've had the pleasure of actually hanging out with on a few occasions, and he is a standup guy. Unless he's drunk.

DIPPPPPAAAAAA

"With great power, comes great responsibility!" -Uncle Ben

I'd like to begin by thanking Tony Pente, not only for having the confidence in me to join his staff, but also for creating the Orioles Hangout for us all to spend countless hours on every day.

Secondly, I'd like to thank Soprano, Weams, and Snutchy for being good friends, and for having faith in your little pal to join you in the good fight.

Next, I'd like to thank my parents, my wife, my kids, Little Baby Jesus, and my puppy Disney. Without them I'd be nothing.

I'd like to thank Bobmc, for giving me the drive and goal to someday be able to wake up each morning, drink coffee for hours next to my beautiful bride, play a round or two of golf, take a nap, get up and drink until the early bird special at Denny's, and then hit the sack at 8pm.

I'd like to thank JTrea, MSK, SportsGuy, and the cast and crew at WNST, for giving me the patience needed to be a moderator on the OH.

I want to thank the Baltimore Orioles, for without them, we'd be the PenteHangout.com.

I'd finally like to thank all of the rest of you, the little people, of the Hangout community, as you are all the reason I come here every day.

And I'd like to end by saying even though I may now be a moderator, I won't let it go to my head. I'll still be the fun loving guy you all know and love....

...unless you disagree with my opinion. Then it's "Ciao Baby!"

    • Matt Chapman to Giants 3 years 54 million.  Opt out after each season.  
    • Mountcastle was 10th in the AL in OPS in the 2nd half. That was post vertigo. With the WALL as a RHH. Only Ohtani, Casas, Seager, Tucker, Diaz, Witt, Rodriguez, Bregman, and Devers, had a higher 2nd half OPS. Pretty good company. 
    • On Draftkings, Kjerstad is the 9th favorite for AL ROY at +2200 Cowser is the 14th favorite for AL ROY at +3500
    • Funny, because I would say waiving other CF AAAA depth would mean that there is no reason to keep another backup CF around because McKenna is that guy. I also think Daniel Johnson must look good enough in camp to get rid of Burdick/Hilliard. It’s also interesting that we’ve only lost 4 players off waivers this offseason. Two of those were CF options. I don’t think the world of McKenna, but he’s a good bench option as being RH to a LH Mullins. 
    • I’ve arrived in Sarasota and will wear my Eddie Murray shirt to tomorrow’s game! Will save the Jones Jersey for Monday. So excited to be here!
    • LABR's AL only room tonight guessed confidence Ryan O'Hearn's playing time is secure over these two. An authentic Lowenstein is useful and the young DH/OF guys would be challenged early to outplay it. But if you feel like it was lightning in a bottle and even Mountcastle as a 1st round pick you happen to have but don't really like is someone you want to invest more in, then.... Only O'Hearn really stands in the way of 1B Mountcastle, DH Kjerstad (or Cowser) playing near enough to everyday.     Mountcastle should be getting towards those 10000 hours of practice to be really good at 1B defense, right? I wouldn't be shocked if a couple years back Elias could send mischievous texts to the Padres like, "we know you have to cut Jorge Mateo, and we're just waiting", and now the circle completes and Colorado or Chicago get to say "we know you have to cut Ryan O'Hearn and Ramon Urias, and we're just waiting (and no they can't be small pieces in your Dylan Cease bid)." Before Santander departs, the path is really more through the first basemen.    DL Hall being in the first big deal Elias actually closed hints to me Mountcastle could be next.    Mountcastle trade value in this slow market is constrained by JD Martinez or Brandon Belt hanging around wondering if they'll get jobs.     Belt may end up playing for less than the 1/4 Mountcastle will command in Arb1 this year.    Carlos Santana made it to ~$5M, a number Arb2 Mountcastle probably blows past for 2025 with a decent season. An early Mountcastle trade and O'Hearn fade could open a path for 1B Santander, RF Cowser, DH Kjerstad even (or however those 3 best defend those positions, probably something different every day based on the arms, bats, ballpark and weather that day. I still have hopes Mountcastle becomes a more significant contributor, but while we wait out Mayo and Basallo, Elias' most "My Guys" lineup in early 2024 might be like: SS Gunnar, C Adley, 1B Santander, LF Hays, DH Kjerstad, CF Mullins, 3B Westburg, RF Cowser, 2B Holliday
    • Surpised they still haven't started Westburg at 2B once yet this spring training after 8 games. He projects as the starting 2nd basemen on opening day.
