Duquette deserves an F for this past offseason. In a critical year, he whiffed several times.

Many people might agree with you. Build a better team on 120 million with no additional years of obligation beyond what Dan has on the books. There may be a future for you in an MLB front office if you can. I can't.

Eh, Washington is pretty stacked and will be over the next few years. But why worry about them? They are not our competition.

Washington has a nice club. But those folk predicting the future whiffed on Detroit and Boston and San Diego. I am just saying that there is a very good chance we will be as good next season. On far less money. Because we have far less.

Are you saying Detroit is out of it in 2015? If we lost yesterday and had Detroit's current record would you call the season a whiff?

Everything I have read on Dipoto has me convinced he could be difference maker as a GM. Of course that is IF he is allowed to do his job. Now, reading this just sucks. I know if I were Dipoto and had a choice between these 2 jobs well.....

Not saying LaCava or someone else wouldn't be good but I had Dipoto at the top of the list. Oh well. Can't anything go the O's way? Don't answer that...I know, I know.

We are all often wrong in our guesses and predictions of gloom here and success elsewhere. I am not happy with this season so far. But it is soon August and I am still watching.

Of course not. I like Detroit. The may get back in it like we will. Some folks thought Detroit was going to win 120 games. That's all.

For some reason Detroit has had the fatal flaw of not having a good bullpen for years now. That's something that DD and Buck have really built here in Baltimore. With the exception of 2013, we win games when we are ahead late.

Wright is $1.7M, how much are Hunter and Matusz.

Andrew Miller makes $10 million a year, right? 4 Year deal?

Been saying this offseason. It especially stands out with our starters not being able to go 6. We need 4 reliable late inning guys. I'm too lazy to look right now but I know are starters have lost a lot of games for us in the 5th and 6th innings for us this year. It's fine to have that type of rotation. But you have to have a dominant pen and a quick trigger to hook the starters.

The key to the Yankees success? Their bullpen. Point just made on the telecast.

Who did the Yankees acquire in the offseason while we sat on our hands faxing Matusz's option papers?

Adnrew Miller. Sometimes good talent is worth the money. The AL East is as weak as it has been in years. You should have gone for the jugular!

How many more games would the O's have won with Miller in the bullpen?

My guess is maybe one more, one of the ones against the Yankees because Miller wasn't pitching for them.

The problem with the "we should have signed Miller" argument is that the Yankees, once they decided not to bring Robertson back, almost certainly were willing to pay Miller whatever it took. The Orioles getting into a bidding war with the Yankees would be like a Western country getting into a land war in Southeast Asia. You're not gonna win. You might make the Yankees spend a little more, but so what?

With hindsight, if I had known how weak the division was going to be this year, I would have favored signing Cruz for four years to have him in the lineup this year, even if it meant using him as a PH in the last year or two of his contract. But I think Miller was out of our reach.

    • It will be interesting to see how many GM's on the playoff fringe pull a '22 Elias and sell. It isn't hard to challenge for sixth best in a 15-team league.    We're about to play the Giants who seem like they are having a second mediocre year after the magical one, but they and the Marlins are IN with a .519 winning percentage. At 23-30, Stroman and Dansby and Trey's Cubs are just 4.5 games behind the Giants, though granted with half the league between them and 6th. Giolito-Eduardo-Stroman-Bieber I have heard batched as a "Big Four" but one or two of their teams could have a real run.    I expect Elias to do something, but I would be surprised if he paid any pre-deadline higher asks.
    • It’s one thing to trade Hernaiz for Irvin who is a fringe MLB starter. But from that suggested list, do you believe that kind of package can land a Stroman? Those are accessory pieces at best. How could that add in value for a Major League, potentially impact starter who has a year and a half left on his contract? Do you believe the Cubs will have no other suitors for Stroman? 
    • Well started to get more Ks and miss more bats starting around July last year iirc. Ironically, he had some starts where he did better in those areas but was giving up more runs. Over the long haul though, missing more bats and getting more Ks is huge for him and if that can last while keeping his control, he’s going to be good…assuming he can stay healthy.  He is going to be a guy that you worry about for a while in that regards.
    • The Wall won't help him out when the splits say to bat a left handed batter against Tyler's right arm.
    • Was at the game yesterday.  Really disappointed with how our infield defense played.   2 errors were officially given out but we had more misplays than that. Of course if you score 0 it doesn't ultimately matter.   But still...........
    • K/9 up to 8.7. That was his weakness last year. If he can miss bats at that rate he is going to be very successful. Zero walks yesterday. I just love watching guys like that pitch. Unfortunately most of the playoff contenders are big HR hitters. Not sure his approach will work well vs Yankees and Jays. Definitely give Tyler one of the home starts and hope the wall helps him out.
    • He's one of those guys that need to be included when there is a discussion on Orioles with the most pure power.  Not sure of the majors but I remember some 500 ft plus bombs in the minors. https://sabr.org/bioproj/person/mike-young/
