Eaton just gave up 2 HR and 3 ER overall in his second inning of work.

At this point, anybody who can throw 3 shutout innings is going to be a lock for the opening day rotation.

Surprise it is only ST game. If he is on the PS for a whilel this eason until Bergesen comes up it won't hurt anyting. IMO

Surprise, Guthrie and Francisco Liriano also got rocked. The wind is blowing out to left. I have never seen Oriole fans root harder against Orioles than Eaton and Baez. If they make the team so what? They are place holders for better things to come.

The Orioles could have got better placeholders. That's the point.

Who? Who are you going to get who you aren't going to pay for as a placeholder. We know they paid Koji $5 million and had the best offer out on Looper. Then there were how many injuries this spring? We know we aren't going to compete. The first wave of long term solutions are on the way (Bergesen, D. Hernandez). Let Eaton and Hendrickson get smashed in April, May, June by the Sox, Yanks, and Rays and bring up the kids in June.

Or you could root for Eaton and Baez to have a little success and we might actually win a few games and actually compete and then trade these guys for something ... anything. I get that Sportsguy has proclaimed that these guys have no chance of having any value, but even the Sportsguy is wrong from time to time.

Just who would they have been??? We needed good pitchers that did not require long term commitment and low cost. If they were really available everyone would have several.

    • I’m willing to wait and be patient until the end of the offseason. What choice do any of us really have? But if the Orioles plan is to “nickel and dime” Free Agents, go bargain bin shopping, rely on prospect growth, and convince fans they are still in a rebuild with a “limited budget”; I think this will tell me all I need to know. The first name may have changed with ownership, but the last name is still the same. If we don’t spend big now with this minuscule payroll when will we ever? If arb is going to be used as a reason to not spend on Free Agency will it get better when our younger players get more expensive through raises? My greatest hope is that the Orioles actually care about their fans and MORE IMPORTANTLY about winning a championship. I know to each his/her own, but I will never be able to get behind billions budgeting and pinching pennies to make more millions.
    • It’s a huge problem in our society today that if something gets said three times on Twitter, people will take it for a fact.  Let’s just wait until we have an authoritative report.   
    • Reveal show had detail it was in-person meeting today (so Kim Ng couldn't be working on her Orioles trades).    Chipper had a travel-cancelling illness, and was replaced by some old Diamondbacks exec the current HOF president could get on short notice. Congrats Crime Dog.    I either forgot or never knew the detail from Harold Reynolds after the announcement it was Kirby Puckett who bestowed the nickname on a Japan tour.
    • I believe Elias has more money to play with as the 30 million Bam money comes into play.   I look for a signing of Tailon, Bell, and back up catcher by Christmas. Mullins CF Rutschman  C Henderson 3B  Bell DH Santander RF Mountcastle 1B Hays/Stowers LF Westburg 2B Mateo SS        
    • Or, they could turn out to be very wrong.    I do agree that the impact FA pitchers will cost that much or more.  There may be some trade targets who won’t, at least in 2023.  
    • I still doubt you’d be correct.  Check back in 20 years!
