While I am for this move, when you look at Fox's stats, you really have to wonder what we are going to get out of him.

They are just downright awful and it doesn't appear to be much in the way of bad luck either.

Encarnacion and Jackson are much better pickups.

Let's not forget the A's were trying to convert him to catcher as well.

I wonder if this might mean Wieters might be going down to AAA, with Tatum as the full time catcher and Fox as the backup.

It would explain why Atkins would still be on the roster.

Bergy up, Wieters down would be my prediction...

Of course it would, b/c it's the least likely to occur. It will very likely be Bergy up, Montanez or Atkins down/released.

Ehh, I am sure we could have come up with something...Maybe needing to send 2 players or something like that.

Yeah I like Jackson way more than Fox. I just think that Arizona was specifically looking for a bullpen arm they could plug in ASAP.

I wonder if Demel being closer to Oakland gave them a better scouting edge and was a guy they targeted too. Not trying to be an O's FO apologist but...Arizona might have really liked this guy.

Seriously? You see a pic of one of the hottest girls on the planet in her underwear and you talk about her thumbs?

Maybe your hero worship of AM is on a much different level than any of us thought. :D

I don't know. It was a good point. I think he should post about 15 more pics of her so we can continue to judge her...thumbs.

Well, I concur. I can't get past the thumbs. Seriously.

Me neither, actually. I've explained this to all my friends and they can't seem to understand. These thumbs are a deal breaker, plain and simple. I don't want to be anywhere near a girl who has a foot for a hand, thanks very much.

Now to get this thread back on track, I sure hope Jake Fox has some normal, human thumbs.

Sometimes I think SG gives RShack too hard of a time, but this time RShack pretty much asked for it.

    • Absolutely, great series.  I'd have signed up for 2 out of 3 in a heartbeat.  Now let's do the same in Milli-wall-kay, which of course means the good land.
    • Honest question to you (and others that think she's fine).... Have you tried listening on the radio?  To either her or Garceau? On TV I don't think they're very good but I don't really care because I can see the action.  But while I respect everyone's opinion I don't understand how people could think that either are acceptable on the radio.
    • It was Lawlar over Cowser. I liked Veen over Kjerstad. I have no issue with either pick, just had a preference.
    • They probably want to see him play for all 9 innings for at least a week (possibly two, as said above) before they call him up to the show.    Here's hoping he's up by sometime in June.
    • I have no problem with Hyde using Cano yesterday.   It was a big game.   Lose that game and the O's would have lost 3 series in a row.  Winning that game makes everything look better. Really Bautista, Cano and Coulombe have been the O's  only reliable relievers.    Bakers has been hot and cold.   I never know what we are going to get from Baumann, Akin and  Voth.  And its hold your  breath time when  Perez  comes  in. Hyde says the O's always seem to play close games.  Well there is a reason for that.   When they get a lead and he goes with relievers other than Bautista, Cano and Coulombe the other relievers let the other team back in the game.   All in all its pretty amazing the O's have the 5th best pen in the MLB. There is a reason Hyde pulls many of his relievers after a few batters.   They have proven they are not to be trusted too far.    So Hyde  is left to maneuver  his way through the middle innings.  
    • I feel for the guy.  But it’s frustrating to watch someone continue to make the same mistakes over and over with no adjustments.  Sure, he’s likely trying but it ain’t working.  
    • The .273 OBP is really the killer. I'm really surprised the Orioles with all of their analytics keep putting an absolute out machine in the lineup everyday. Now I have noticed they are finally starting to give O'Hearn and hopefully Santander if they promote Cowser more opportunities.  I really think Mountcastle needs a reset in the minors. He was not done any factors coming up in a system at the time that did not make him learn plate discipline so you get what we got at this point.  Maybe some Norfolk time would help? I don't know if he's fixable but he clearly has continued to decline in the major leagues as pitchers have figured out how to get him out and he hasn't been able to make the adjustment back.
