The Orioles are 7.5 back in the East and 2.5 back in the WC (mathematically tied w  LAA & SEA) behind four teams.

It's hard to see a path forward to compete this season.

That is because the only one that exists requires multiple meteor strikes.

We're 2.5 G out of the wild card. Lets see where we are after the next 15 G. Right now nobody's ready to sell.

I hope we drop low enough that we don't end up trading legitimate prospects for an overpaid, over-the-hill starter for a "one more time" run. Jones, Hardy and O'Day are in decline. The window has closed. Time to start over.

There isn't any one player that can make this team a playoff contender.

Agree. Too many issues, and none are easy fixes. I'd prefer we keep what value we have in the minors at this point. Sell to the teams that are close to the top, or in the same position as us (but have minor league players blocked by VERY good MLB players).

As for the playoffs: We wont win the division, and if any of the O's brass is shooting for the WC, get rid of them.

    • We’ll always have the no-hitter…
    • Do we know what his velocity was today? I know he doesn't light up the gun but was he at his normal? 
    • Longterm he’s probably that missing RH SU/MR that we’ve been looking for since the Fuji trade.  It’s probably Suarez vs Ramírez vs Tate for 1-2 bullpen spots. Wells and one of Irvin/Means could be in the bullpen mix as well.  Depth is good to have. I wouldn’t sleep on Ramirez either. Elias has shown a knack from adding relievers through trade or waivers. 
    • There's not a single high level prospect on the team he pitched against tonight and even the one out he got was crushed
    • Let’s tap the brakes on his move to the bullpen. His stuff plays and he can get outs. Best of all, he doesn’t walk anyone. He challenges hitters and gets weak contact. With our defense, I’d rather him give up the occasional double or flared hit to the outfield than to see walks. Keep him in the starting rotation until he proves he doesn’t belong. Wells and Irvin both have experience in the pen and frankly for Irvin, though I love him, has a real tough time throwing strikes at times.    anyway, let’s see what the old dog can do.
    • I could see Suarez sticking in a bullpen role long term with the movement on his fastball. Also he might be able to throw a 2 to 3 more MPH harder not having to worry about trying to pitch six innings. The Orioles have done a good job finding pitchers who weren't expected to do much in recent years and it would be cool if Suarez is another find.
    • I mean, heres where we really find out if Holliday is cut out for the majors and if he has the character to fight through major adversity right off the bat right?  Saw a good point that there was a guy previously that started 4 of 55, and that was ole #8.  Mike Trout didnt get his batting average up to .200 until May 31st of his first season.  Ideal? Absolutely not.  But when the franchises all-time hits leader started with the same slump its something to pay attention to.
