Thanks for posting this - it is very interesting. I am not surprised to hear that Trembley is very high on Arrieta - he has referenced Arrieta several times in discussions with the media. But it's interesting to hear he thinks Arrieta will be the best of the lot.

I'd be willing to bet a ton of money that Trembley is wrong on this one.

I hear u on this one, I can't wait to see how our pitcher from this year turns out to be also. In a few months we are going to have a "Big 4" . I would love to have Crow thrown in the mix and watch all 4 be in Baltimore around the same time in 10.

It would not surprise me no matter which one turned out to be best. If I had to lay odds:

Matusz - 40%

Tillman - 35%

Arrieta - 25%

It's more important to me that all three (or at least two of the three) turn out to be above average starters, than which one is the best.

BTW, Markakis said Matusz was the one who impressed him most.

I'm most excited about Matusz of the 3. Tillman seems closer to ready than some people imply here. And no one talks about it, but if Tillman comes up this year, he will probably be the youngest pitcher in the league! Color me excited!

Agreed 100%. I just think that sometimes Trembley puts a little too much emphasis on perceived "intangibles" (note the paradox) - and, for instance, fails to take into account that, say, Tillman is a couple of years younger than Arrieta.

Let's note that, at 20, Arrieta's draft stock was plummeting in college, while Tillman was lighting up AA.

I'd like for them to select Crow too. He'd fit right in with that group and wouldn't be far behind them in terms of a call up. I see one year max in the minors for him.

Good point. I'm just glad that all three acquitted themselves so well this spring. None of them did anything to suggest they are overhyped. For good measure, we got good performances from Bergesen, Hernandez, Perez, Mickolio and McCrory. I'm very pleased that all these guys had positive experiences with the big club.

It was awesome hearing about Arrieta, Tillman and Matusz come on strong and be just as advertised. It sure didn't take them long to get acclimated to the majors, thats for sure. I definately agree with you, it was important for our young pitchers to gain positive experience from ST. Now its time for them to go back down to the minors, keep winning and bring that winner's attitude with them to the team when they are called up.

God I hope not. Not another pitcher. I believe he's suppose to have really bad mechanics as well. We need position players with talent.

I remember you wanting Smoak really badly over Matusz right? I could go either way on this one, BUT. Honestly last year I think we should have went position player(because of the elite position player talent in last years draft) and pitcher this year(pitcher heavy draft up top). Knowing that AM philosophy is to draft a pitcher in the 1st round, and that a college pitcher is the safest bet, and knowing that AM knows the O's have no room for error, you can narrow our pick down to a few select people. I think we are going to take Crow, or White may fall to us. Maybe even Grant Green will fall all the way to round 2. I understand why people are getting scared that we have no position talent in the organization, but our surplus of pitching are what is going to make up our position talent, but that will only be when the time comes. IMO it does not matter whether we draft a pitcher or a position player, what matters is we draft the best talent/value available so that when it comes time to compete, we can trade off the redundancy and bring in what we need.

    • The MLB Network had a writer covering the Marlins on the other day and she mentioned Mullins for Lopez and seemed to indicate the Marlins may have to add someone else. I wonder if that is an even trade or if we have to add someone. It seems to me that trading for a young pitcher and signing a veteran would be the best use of our resources.
    • Asking here as honestly have no clue, is the Fan Cost Index sensitive to StubHub, Seatgeek, etc?     My guess is it uses the Clubs List Price, but like everything else in the world that's just the starting point of a negotiation. Now that the team is better and the kiddo old enough, will probably get back more next season, but know I'm behind on the most efficient consumer practices for any given day.     The Yard won't be as full as it'll get in a few years, so imagining surge pricing will only be taking baby steps in 2023.
    • I don't think we really disagree about much. There is wide array of ticket prices. And I think even Fan Price Index shows the Orioles being particularly fair, and if I recall correctly their family of four number for 2022 was $156 You're reading my comments as if they were directed at the Orioles. They were not. Nor were they a criticism, as much as an identification of one of the factors that is feeding the decline of generational popularity in baseball. Many of us have a love for the game. For me that love was cemented by two things. My Dad taking me to the ballpark as a kid... and my Little League experience as a kid.  Affordability was a big part of that. When I was a kid we didn't have two nickles to rub together. My father worked two jobs to make ends meet. Mom delivered newspapers to keep us ahead of the bills. But we could still afford to go to 33rd St a couple times a year... Saw Mark Belanger hit a home run...  that was a rare feat.. and I had a ratty old mitt and some fish-heads to play Little League with. I found old deposit bottles in the woods and took 'em to the 7-11 to buy baseball cards. That's where I fell in love with the game. Eventually my father built a very successful business. and we didn't have to worry about that kind of thing.. But I kept my love for the game that was built in those early experiences. Baseball was once literally the cost of a matinee movie...  stands were packed... all the time... but slowly.. generationally.. this has changed... the last generation to FULLY embrace baseball were boomers...  I guess there's a part of me that thinks selling out every game ...and families embracing is early might change the trajectory baseball is on... wishful thinking maybe      
    • The same thing happened in San Francisco when Roman was there.   They had one truly great season with Kaepernick, and then nothing.   Not that I'm comparing Lamar to Kaepernick, but at their best under Roman, they are pretty similar. I don't know if they are using this system because they think Lamar can't handle a more complex system, or because Roman is stuck using the same stuff over and over.    Roman needs to be gone regardless of what happens with Lamar.  They need to get rid of Ricard and start running a real pro-style offense.   
    • I guess I’ve reached the point of the off-season where I’m at do we really need to add a bat?  Stowers and Vavra spent the last 1/3 of the season up. Westburg is ready. Cowser could be ready are June.    Is Brantley, Voit, or Mancini worth even a one year deal?  I could see us rolling with what we have, figuring out what we have, and signing a vet depth bat like Jesus Aguilar to a milb deal with a ST invite. If we need a bat, we can always get a rental at the deadline.
