Right now this would be my starting lineup

LF Hyun Soo Kim

3B Manny Machado

CF Adam Jones

1B Chris Davis

C Matt Wieters

2B Jonathan Schoop - needs to be higher up in lineup

RF Mark Trumbo

DH Jimmy Paredes or Christian Walker

SS JJ Hardy

Any lineup that features Mark Trumbo in the outfield is not a good one, and the Orioles know that. I expect Trumbo will be the primary DH and will occasionally spell Davis at 1B, but I'd be shocked if he got more than a handful of starts in the outfield.

Delmon got 28 and 40 these past two years. I could see him in this range.

Id much rather see a guy like Dariel Alvarez, LJ Hoes or Henry Urrutia get a shot

I agree.

Ugh. Cespedes or Upton in RF and Trumbo at 1B/DH would be so much better. And counting on Paredes or Walker as a full time start is absurd.

So we are going to be signing another OF? Any idea who that might be?

I just figured it would be cheaper to add a DH/1B like Pearce or Alvarez.

1) L Kim (LF)

2) R Machado (3B)

3) R Jones (CF)

4) L Davis (1B)

5) R Trumbo (DH)

6) R Schoop (2B)

7) S Wieters ©

8) R Reimold (RF)

9) R Hardy (SS)

L-R-R-L-R-R-S-R-R. Notes:

- Machado could still lead off if the team is comfortable with Kim batting second.

- Davis and Jones could switch if another lefty is in the lineup.

- Right now, I think Trumbo is spelled a bit with Paredes DHing. The team can still use one more value left handed bat.

- It's plausible to have Hardy bat 8th with Reimold 9th, turning over the lineup better. Reimold did do a bit of leadoff hitting remember. If Kim busts, you'll see that happen again.

    • I think Kimbrel would have gotten the final out and it was a cheap call. But if this happened to the Orioles my biggest complaint would be don’t spot the other team a six run lead going into your last at bat. And hearing Yankees fans seethe amuses me when they still celebrate this play in their team’s history.
    • What is Elias thinking about fixing our bullpen?  Does he think because we won 101 games last year that he doesn't need to do anything now?  Is he going to to wait until we are 8-9 games out in August?
    • I think the problem there is Houston is only 4.5 games back of the division, and compared to other teams with similar records (STL/Helsley like I mentioned) are a legit title contender if they make the postseason. Unless they implode I think they will be buyers vs/ sellers if anything.
    • I wouldn't be opposed to trading for Ryan Pressly. He's having a down here with Houston but I think he's better than he's been pitching plus upcoming free agent next year. He shouldn't cost much. 
    • Yes, if it were up to me, I would change the rules so that on an infield fly with interference called, the ball is dead and the runners go back to their original base.  So Vaughn would be at 2nd, and whoever was at 1st would stay there.  Not because he wasn't trying to advance, but because the play needs to be called dead due to runner's interference and it doesn't feel fair to call him out for that, when the fielder doesn't really need to field the ball to make an out.
    • We do have different definitions of extension.   Means will be a FA after the season.  An extension is any contract the keeps him an Oriole instead of becoming a FA IMO.  One year or more.     Heck the O's may have extended Coulombe when they gave him an option year for 2025.  Its an extension if they pick up the option. If Means goes FA then he signs with the O's that is not an extension.   That is signing a new contract.
    • The 2nd paragraph is what I’m asking about.  You would just keep Vaughn at 2B, which is no penalty at all on that play because he wasn’t trying to advance.  Right?
