Just saying....my son ended school on June 17 and was home doing nothing until June 28. During that time, O's went 8-3. He left for camp June 29 and came back July 24. During THAT time, Birds went 5-15. He came back July 25 and I think we all know what's happened since then. We are heading out of town Sunday for a week! I am worried, very worried....:eek::scratchchinhmm:

We will likely know all we need to know about this team by the end of NEXT weekend.

I don't see it that way. Buck will keep this team fighting all the way. We'll know in late September or October whether we had enough to get it done.

BUCK! BUCK! BUCK! BUCK! BUCK!

The team has steamrolled winning teams this year, and lost to losing teams. I don't much care about strength of schedule. Home vs. Away does seem to matter with this team.

    • Listening to your comments I made a few changes.   Now calling the list Core/Keepers. Added Mullins and Tyler Wells to the list. I hear the comments on Mountcastle but this at his age (25) with  his development defensively.  At this point he just had a bad offensive year and is likely to improve.
    • I swear it looked like he just grooved it for him.
    • Makes it look easy. Easy power... we'll take it!
    • Yeah, that's it.  Not sure Gray Rod is even part of the core yet because he hasn't even pitched in the majors.  I'm not suggesting that Elias is looking to trade him unless he is part of a trade for another core player. What was the core for the 2012-2016 Orioles.  I'm going to say it was Wieters and Jones.  I guess you could add Markakis.  The rest of the players came and went or just had a great season or 2 (Davis).  I think that was part of the problem with the 2012-2016 O's, was the core wasn't big enough and there wasn't any elite players in the core.  Did anyone regularly include Wieters, Jones and Markakis in the best players in baseball conversation. 
    • I can't consider a player at a prime offensive position putting up a .724 OPS a core player.  I would be surprised if Elias doesn't have several players in the minors who he considers possible replacements for Mountcastle. 
    • But, will his replacement be as much fun mic'd up? "Mac Ohtani" is my favorite part!
    • I'll just leave you with this: Roberts 43 passed balls in 1558.1 inning caught (1 every 36 innings) vs Handley 14 PB in 1247 innings caught (1 every 89 innings). Roberts is a good depth guy similar to Austin Wynns who could back up for a bit, but Handley is the superior defensive catcher. Offensively, Handley, strikeout less, walks more, has more power and overall is two years younger. They are not the same. Handley to me is a legitimate backup catcher at the major league level for a long time while Roberts could be more of a breakglass in case of emergency AAA depth piece that could fill in for a bit without killing a team but does nothing good enough to stick long term.
