One of our posters (my apologies but I don't remember who) mentioned that Zack Wheeler and Alex White are the only confirmed players to have a workout at Camden Yards. I asked Roch about this and he confirmed the report.

Anyway, since it looks like we're zeroing in on Wheeler and White, who do you think the O's will pick come Tuesday?

I'd take anyone except for White @ #5.

I've seen him on TV ALOT (I live in the Carolinas) and I've seen him in person 3 times. He's inconsistent and when he gets hit, he gets hit hard. He does have the ability to miss bats, but for whatever reason when he misses w/his pitch it's UGLY.

I voted for Tyler Matzek, hoping he's around at 5.

All I can say is that the O's (specifically, Jordan) must see something about White that they really, really like. Perhaps there's something to the Brandon Webb comp... :noidea:

I trust Jordan's opinion though. :)

I'd like the O's to take Matzek if he's available, but the scuttlebutt is that they prefer Wheeler, so that's who I "voted" for.

Of course the warehouse might be blowing smoke, hoping that they can mislead someone higher up into taking Wheeler instead of Matzek. :scratchchinhmm:

I don't even know why I vote in some of these polls. I picked Wheeler because if it comes down to him or White that's who I want. However, I'd really prefer Matzek over anyone but Strasburg.

I'll find a reason to be optimistic if the O's pick:

Matzek, Crow, Scheppers, Miller, Turner, Green, Tate or Ackley. The only way I could really be disappointed tomorrow is if we end up with White or Gibson.

    • Twenty people believe there’s a trade before the season that changed the offseason? Hmm I said it when Elias was hired. Nothing of any significance will change until there’s new ownership.  Actually, I questioned his ability to perform his duties with the current ownership. I’m still waiting for an impact signing. However, I think they may have a chance with the young guys. Of course, that assumes a big season from Adley, Gunnar and GrayRod and it’s likely at least one of that group has growing pains.    I also hope Hall gets a real shot as a SP. Too many people didn’t recognize the strides he made in season and he’s always been a starter. His stint in the pen was useful, but that kid has electric stuff.  Don’t get me wrong, Elias has been ok, but how much could he do if they loosened the purse strings? Yes, I know, the Frazier signing, but how bout that Gibson guy!  
    • The biggest development of the season will be the sale of the team.
    • We will be fortunate if GRod has a sub 4 ERA. I don’t see him as any more important than the rest of the starters.  If he is ever a true ace (and the odds are against that), it won’t likely be in 2023. The biggest development to this year will be revolved around all the young players, not just one. Everything about this team and the future success of this organization hinges on them. 
    • I'd say that is a yes. https://www.mlb.com/glossary/transactions/service-time  
    • Unusual, in that Birds usually avoid both Fox and Wolf.
    • Why not keep Al and NL just make each have East and West Divisions. Al East is our current group plus Chicago WS and Cleveland plus an expansion in Charlotte-Nashville. AL west gets the rest NL east is that current group plus Chicago Cubs, Pittsburg, and Cincinnati. the west gets the rest plus an expansion in Vegas or wherever. You play your division 15 times (105 games) and the other division say 6 times (48 games). That gets you to 153, add a 3 game inter league to a close geographic rival (Gnats) you are at 156. Expand Playoffs so top 4 in each Division in. the top 2 advance to face the other geographic Division. league winners in WS
