Any chance that he's doing the opposite of last year? Great spring training but gets hurt and can't play the whole year. But now he's having a terrible spring training so that means he'll be fine and pitch well????

yea, its just wishful thinking. What are the chances he turns it around. I still think it's good since he hasn't even had a full season in the majors yet.

How long can the O's pitch with 4 starters at the beginning of the season because it looks like he is going to need a little more time. This is not a reaction to this inning, this is a reaction to his whole spring.

If he is not 100% he might be trying to hit corners too much, instead of just pitching.

I hate to write this, but there's no indication that Loewen is ever going to get his walks down. He's got a 5.22 bb/9 over 329 MiL innings.

Not concerned about the walks. His numbers regarding walks and Ks improved as he rose throught he minors. It would be a poor analysis to simply look at his total IP and total BBs and start drawing conclusions.

Actually, the number of innings he pitched above Frederick don't provide enough to adequately measure what he's going to do (except for Baltimore 2006). In a full season at Frederick he had a bb/9 of 5.45 and in 2006 at Baltimore in 102 IP he had a BB/9 of 4.97. I guess that's an improvement.

    • I would offer 4 years for $75-80 million. Trade for Lopez and the rotation would be more than set. 
    • Distinctly remember having a debate with @DrungoHazewoodseveral years ago about McGriff’s candidacy. I wonder if he’s changed his tune. 
    • It's only 2 pages if you take out duplicate posts and unrelated to Gibson posts. It is decibel going to be a long offseason.  Haha
    • He's currently #12. If he collects the entire contract, he will be in the top 2-3. Verlander likely still beats him with this next contract, but I agree it's still close. My point is that ToR starters are wickedly expensive and if Grayson becomes one, as many have postulated he might, having him early in his career when he is cost contained and thoughtfully dispositioning him when he becomes expensive will have an enormous impact on the finances of the ball club. I think mores than Adley and Gunnar but I could be very wrong. 
    • I’m willing to wait and be patient until the end of the offseason. What choice do any of us really have? But if the Orioles plan is to “nickel and dime” Free Agents, go bargain bin shopping, rely on prospect growth, and convince fans they are still in a rebuild with a “limited budget”; I think this will tell me all I need to know. The first name may have changed with ownership, but the last name is still the same. If we don’t spend big now with this minuscule payroll when will we ever? If arb is going to be used as a reason to not spend on Free Agency will it get better when our younger players get more expensive through raises? My greatest hope is that the Orioles actually care about their fans and MORE IMPORTANTLY about winning a championship. I know to each his/her own, but I will never be able to get behind billions budgeting and pinching pennies to make more millions.
    • It’s a huge problem in our society today that if something gets said three times on Twitter, people will take it for a fact.  Let’s just wait until we have an authoritative report.   
    • Reveal show had detail it was in-person meeting today (so Kim Ng couldn't be working on her Orioles trades).    Chipper had a travel-cancelling illness, and was replaced by some old Diamondbacks exec the current HOF president could get on short notice. Congrats Crime Dog.    I either forgot or never knew the detail from Harold Reynolds after the announcement it was Kirby Puckett who bestowed the nickname on a Japan tour.
