Arrieta has now pitched 6 innings and given up 3 H, 1 BB and 0 ER. He has me pretty excited considering he has never pitched in the minors and is facing guys who are either High-A all-stars or AA/AAA players. He has been in a relief role probably to protect his arm, is there a chance he could come quickly as a reliever a la Joba Chamberlein?

Awesome to see Reimold start to tear it up. Doubtful he makes the team out of ST, but he should definitely be up by midseason at the latest. He'd have to have an amazing spring like Nick did in '06 for a shot at the MLB roster.

Don't know if 6 for 36 constitutes tearing it up, but it is nice to see him showing some pop.

Still, let's be clear... 6 for 30 in the AFL is far from tearing it up.

Ok guys, since we are being clear, the only thing Mackus said was "Starting to tear it up".

I suppose he said "starting" because he had 3 homeruns in his last 3 games. I would constitute that as "starting to tear it up".

Nolan Reimold and Blake Davis were both named to the East Division roster for the 2007 AFL Rising Stars Showcase. The game will be played at 7:05 pm on Friday, October 26 at Surprise Stadium. Currently, Davis is hitting .333 in 18 at-bats with 2 stolen bases. Reimold is batting .200 in 30 at-bats with 3 HR's.

Last year Reimold started the AFL season very hot and then cooled down to ice cube level. This year hopefully it will be the opposite. But even if he does get hot now, he's not making the kind of consistent showing that would have the team giving him a real hard look in spring training. I'm glad he has a few BB's (5), but those 11 K's in 36 PA's worry me.

Don't forget Bob McCrory. Compare any of his outings to those of Penn and even Arrieta. He has opened some eyes, currently sitting atop the league in saves:

Name 	Team 	W 	L 	ERA 	G 	GS 	CG 	SHO 	SV 	IP 	H 	R 	ER 	HR 	HB 	BB 	SO 	WHIP 	HLD 	GF McCrory	PDD	1	0	1.93	5	0	0	0	4	4.2	1	1	1	0	0	2	6	0.64	0	5

Here's the full roster. (I'll have the pleasure of being in attendance...perhaps will even have the pleasure of meeting Azron...Can't wait :D )

    • Have you seen the lineups? They are a joke. Hyde has to go too.     😎 Insomnia in progress. 
    • I have to admit I am all for resigning Burnes too, I just can't remember the last time the O's signed a free agent the other top teams wanted.  I don't think even Chris Davis fits that category because the O's were bidding against themselves.  Albert Belle?  I guess I'll just try to be hopeful.  I can't see Rubenstein making himself the public face of the franchise and then turning around and basically saying this is going to be my cash cow.  I guess we'll soon find out.  I have to admit I am looking forward to this way more than the election.  lol
    • It seems to me they should probably change their approach or the season will end up a disaster.  It’s frankly unexplainable they haven’t demoted/traded/DFA’d the players that aren’t performing.  It’s a joke management thinks this group of players has any chance of winning anything.  Imagine if they could just walk more..
    • Sorry I’m not Gretzky fan , lol . And don’t know any of his quotes. But I would love to hear it , if you can share.    Speaking of bullpen, I agree that ours needs to be augmented and upgraded.  The trade deadline is coming soon so……..
    • I agree. He's a major factor in our odds to win a World Series. Gotta go for it while you can and keep him if we can. I generally don't like big contracts and view them as over pays. I criticized the Albert Belle signing, I hated the Ubaldo Jimenez signing, and I didn't feel comfortable with the Chris Davis extension. But to me those players did not have a solid consistent careers as a pure Ace player like Burnes does. Burnes is a player I feel confident that you know what you're getting, even if we can expect a decline by age 35. Up to that point, you're getting a perennial Cy Young competitor to anchor your entire Pitching Staff and give you a chance to win when you need it most just like he did tonight in the game 3 rubber match in a series against division rivals. This series against the Red Sox, Burnes was effectively the Stopper and got us back on track. I'm all for resigning Corbin Burnes! It's on my Christmas wish list!
    • I agree. He's been such a key part of the team competing this year. Especially since we don't have a good bullpen, Corbin Burnes has been HUGE for us. For us to keep the window to a World Series chance open, we have to at least try to retain his services. Ya never know if you don't try! What's that Wayne Gretsky quote about shots you don't take?
