They've been piggybacking guys for years right?

Here and there, even a string of a couple of games.

It sounds like this is how the entire MIL season will play out.

I suspect, they are working towards moving this to the ML, and really change the outlook on SP.

This was what the Astros did for several years. I remember we obtained a LHP (Chris Lee) in 2015 who stalled in Norfolk. I remember the discussion about him being a reliever, but it was discovered that the Astros had been piggy-backing starters. It’s an interesting idea, and it makes sense to keep the innings under control. They can always throw more in the pen after they exit , if they need more.

Yeah but how good did this work out for Houston considering their primary SP were acquired from outside the org?  Grienke, Cole, Verlander, Mchugh, Miley, Fiers, Morton, Peacock, Fister, Feldman. 
 

Only McCullers and Kuechel came through their system. 
 

They grew the bats and bought the arms.

I agree that the Astros did not seem to have success. I guess we’ll see if this is different.

No matter how you label it, sounds like 2 starters for each minor league game this year for the Orioles.

Maybe the MLB O's should mimic this practice other than the games Means starts.  We already have the minor league starters, just they're pitching in the majors.

Is there any team other than the Rays that are able to grow the arms with any success?

Good question. Cleveland, Dodgers, Padres and Cardinals come to mind. I don't have empirical data to back that up, just my perception.

Several years ago, it seemed like the Mets were well stocked in young pitching on the major league roster and in the minors. Aside from Degrom, not much left from that group, and that was only 5-6 years ago.

The Dodgers buy their arms.

But, you make several good points.

Actually, the Dodgers have had great success in the past seven years growing their own arms. Our own Dean Kremer, Walker Buehler, Dustin May, Julio Urias*, Caleb Ferguson*, Mitch White, Josiah Gray, Bobby Miller, Tony Gonsolin, Clayton Beeter, Dennis Santana and Jordan Sheffield were all drafted/signed and developed by them. You could argue that they have been the best at developing pitching. Hyun Jin Ryu was signed by them, though already a finished product.

Bauer- Free agent acquisition

Kershaw- Drafted by the Dodgers

Buehler- Drafted by the Dodgers

Urias- International signing by  the Dodgers

May- Drafted by the Dodgers

i stand corrected. Well played.

I guess with all the bodies they buy whenever they need to, has clouded my memory.

I do remember, they lost all 5 SP, and picked up 5 more from outside the org one year, and still managed to have a playoff run.

    • Westburg has been much better at 3B than at 2B this season. Even if you don't like to use the advanced metrics, look at his fielder percentage, errors compared to number of chances, his DWAR, etc.  Nothing suggest that he has been good defensively at 2B this season. I don't know if Holliday will ever be elite there defensively. But there is a very good chance that he won't be as bad as Westburg has been playing 2B this year.
    • I'm pretty in honestly. I don't think Detroit would go for it though.
    • 1) I think Basallo works a little bit better for the Tigers timeline as their best position prospects are at single A. 2) I would probably rather trade Basallo as he probably has the least "natural" fit of all of our most talented players in the org. If Mayo is going to be a 1B where does Basallo play DH/back up C/back up 1B?  3) We already have an excellent/elite offense as is (the last week withstanding). It will be even better adding two elite hitting prospects plus Kjerstad (if he stays). At that point my question is how much offense do you need than elite/potentially the best? But to get your hands on one of the best starters in the AL IMO is more complementary to our team needs/org talent set up.
    • If the rumours were true that Angelos and T Rowe agreed and/or were working towards naming rights to OPACY, there were still the minutia of the MSA agreeing to anything from a naming perspective...and we all know how irked everybody was w/ Angelos about lying about selling the club.  Now, is it possible that this is Rubenstein's concession to T Rowe after acquiring the team? Sure. But he's going balls to the wall otherwise. Obnoxious batches on the uniform, huge branding in the OF, and the most prominent location in the stadium with ostentatious branding...not exactly subtle. So, while it might have stemmed the tide regarding naming rights to the stadium, it almost feels like it's a foregone conclusion that it will soon happen. After all, Rubenstein and Arougheti are private equity boys. And this is what they do. They are never/rarely going to turn down cashflow. The big question for me remains whether any of this money will find its way back into the on the field product. So far Rubenstein has been pretty mealy-mouthed regarding increased spending on FA deals or extensions for the young stars. That said, I'd rather action than talk, but to me the honeymoon period for Rubenstein is over. This trade deadline and offseason will speak volumes. I'd love to see this organization be ran like some combination of the Braves/Astros. 
    • Honeycutt vs. EBJ in a bit of a swing-type/approach grudge match!  May the odds ever be in your favor!
    • And this is why I don't love OAA .. it also says that Jorge has been -1 at 2B, which, I can't see how that tracks because I've watched literally every game this year and Jorge has been superb with the glove at 2B. OAA suggests that Jorge is the 26th best defensive 2B in baseball. So, yeah.. not buying into OAA.
