    • I admit,I was ONE. I'm last to the dance. I was wrong, and I freely admit it. Mateo is electric when he is on a hit streak, and he is on one now. Offensively, defensively,on the bases, giving this team a jolt. Sure, he'll cool off, and he'll slump again, but we are all riding his wave right now . And wont doubt what he can be...ever again.
    • Beavers’ 152 WRC+ is second only to Kjerstad in the Orioles’ system. 
    • That's just it.  He's SO talented, I simply can't figure out why the slumps are SO bad and SO long.  I know that all players have hot streaks and cold spells, and while I largely rather have players who are more consistent, even if it means they may not have the insane highs that some have, the ups and downs are part of baseball.  But the peaks and the valleys are just so bloody extreme with Mateo it's hard to wrap my mind around it.  A Mateo hitting like he has this year is extremely valuable.  While I'm the #1 member of the 'Mateo haters' fan club, I'm an Os fan first and foremost.  If he can help the team win, then I'm all for it, and so far this year he certainly has.  I hope his cold spell is a long way away, and when it inevitably happens, I hope it is milder than it has been in the past, and lasts for a much shorter time.  With the way some of the rest of the lineup has been hitting, we need production out of Mateo, and fortunately we've been getting it so far.  
    • When I first read this trade, I thought we gave up the additional prospect. Seeing that I misread that, I think the Os just bought a prospect from the Brewers and decided to see the arm on the ML roster. This trade wasn’t about Vieria imo.
    • Stowers has barely played on this team the past 2 years.  Heston as well.   Mayo never.    Elias is like Chris Ballard with the Colts.  He loves his 'old vet' guys. 
    • It's weird seeing Grich without his mustache.  
    • First of all Stowers is in the majors. Perhaps you missed his 3 hit 4 RBI game. The reason that Heston and Mayo aren’t in the majors is because other young players are instead.   IE Cowser and Gunnar and Westburg and Stowers et al.  There are only so many roster spots   Mayo needs work on the defensive side.  Kjerstad is straight up blocked   This narrative that ME simply doesn’t want to play the prospects he worked so hard to accumulate is just so tired and lame.
