Episode 43

- Who's the most talented player on the Orioles current roster?

- Mike Baumann made his ML debut Tuesday and got the win. Baumann joined other 'Group of '10' starters Zac Lowther, Keegan Akin, and Alex Wells on the current ML roster.

Set the over / under on how many Group of 10 arms are on the ML roster to begin '22?  Do you think it's fair to say '20 impacted development of some of them, or is that a crutch?

Group of 10: Akin / Kremer / Baumann / Lowther / Zimmermann / Wells / Bradish / Smith / Rom / Knight

- There are a number of high end SS's available this off-season. We also talked last week about Andrelton Simmons being available as a dependable glove.

If the Orioles won't pursue any of the stars, would you advocate for Simmons over Mateo, or the O's pursuing a blocked prospect elsewhere?  

- Project the contracts...    Michael Pineda, Zach Davies, Carlos Martinez, Eduardo Rodriguez, Simmons, Syndergaard, Alex Wood

- Tampa Bay continues to lead the AL East.  Boston is the 1st Wild Card.  New York has lost 5 straight, and Toronto has won 7 in a row to pull within a 1.5 of the Yankees.  Seattle and Oakland, are also within 3 games of NY. Do the Yanks hold on, or get overtaken?

- If the Dodgers don't overtake the Giants in the AL West, they will be one of the Wild Cards.  San Diego is currently the 2nd WC, with the Reds 1 GB, and the Phillies, Cards, and Mets within 4.5 games. Who gets the 2nd WC in the National League?

- Again, what's the cutoff on how many teams you believe can win the World Series?

Article at PressBox: Time For Orioles To Walk And Chew Gum At Same Time...  Thoughts?

Potential Free Agents on 1,2 year deals... who interests you?

- Are there options you see as viable trade targets? Maybe guys with contracts that their existing teams would like to get out of.

Maybe prospects that are blocked. Starting Pitching, a Reliever, SS and 3rd would seem to be logical positions to look at.

- MLB MVP Races... your current choices?

NL CY Young?


We've entered September... how many teams do you believe can win the WS?

- Springer back healthy for Toronto, and raking...  Jays still 4th in the East, and 7 GB though.  Toronto, TB, and New York were all 8-2 in their last 10 games. Boston on a skid.
Updated  AL East thoughts?

- We weren't overly complimentary of the Phillies last week, and they've responded with an 8 game winning streak (entering today), and took the lead in the NL East... what's propelling them currently?

- Cincinnati has been hot, and has closed the gap on Milwaukee some in the Central. Do you see that race getting closer?

- As we expected, Rutschman has been promoted to AAA...  should Rodriguez be joining him?

- The Orioles were able to grab Jorge Mateo off of waivers...  a bit better of a prospect than the typical waiver wire options...

- Ryan Mountcastle had to go on the IL with a concussion...  where does he rank in the AL ROY race for you?

Recapping the trade deadline...

- The Orioles only moved Galvis, thoughts?

- The Yankees were active...

- The Cubs moved on...

Last week we looked at the American League... let's reset the National League coming out of the Deadline...

- The Mets lead the NL East, with Philly and Atlanta both within 3.5 games. How do you see this playing out?

- Despite Jackie Bradley Jr being horrible, Milwaukee has a commanding lead in the Central, and are 21 games over .500 entering tonight. Educate us on the Brewers, what should we know?

- I think we thought going into the year SF could be improved, but not in a position to compete with LA and SD.  The Giants enter tonight leading the West. 
Big year for Gausman, Wood, Posey, Crawford...  fun year for the Giants...

- LA...  Trevor Bauer was replaced by Scherzer... ohh, and they also got Trea Turner.  Dodgers might not get the 110 wins I thought was possible to begin the year, but remain extremely formidable. Are they your current favorite to win the Series?

- SD... another fun year for the Padres, but they missed out on their attempt to land Scherzer, and most importantly it's not clear if Tatis will avoid surgery.  Other issues - Snell, Ha-Seong Kim.

Circling back to the Orioles...

- They didn't trade Mancini...  what does that mean to you?

- Means throws a no-no!

- The Orioles are roughly 20% through their '21 season.  What stands out to you?

- Mountcastle struggled mightily in April... has come to life over the last week. Current thoughts?

- Kremer struggled over his initial 4 starts, before turning in his best outing of the year Monday at Seattle? Too many homers, too many walks. K's good. Current thoughts?

- Cedric Mullins continues to be hot... becoming more interesting to you?

- Who do you see as most likely to be traded out of Means, Mancini, Scott, and Santander?

- The Minor Leagues are finally back.... Baumann is not on a full season roster (hope is he'll be pitching by month end)... and Rodriguez is starting at A vs. AA.  What will you be paying attention to MiL wise?

- Stephen... update the ML Draft... as of today, you project the Baltimore Orioles to select who?

Episode 34

Episode 34

- John Means is performing well... which means some Oriole fans are concerned he'll be traded...  under control through '24. Current thoughts?

- Hays returned from his injury. Santander is out 2-4 weeks with an ankle injury.  Ryan McKenna was brought back up.  Stewart benefits in the immediate?

- Time to cut bait with Ruiz and promote Jones to take over 2nd?

- Thoughts on Lopez and M. Harvey? Lopez excellent his last time off, showed off the talent. No real reason to believe in his ability to be a consistent starter... Harvey looks fairly similar to what he was in '18

Some guy wrote this...  where do you agree / disagree?

- The Orioles have a 3 game set with Oakland this weekend.. impressions on the A's so far? 12-7 after starting 0-6.

- As of Thursday night, there are 5 teams in the American League with a positive run differential...  offense has been slow overall so far..  Boston leading the East, KC in the Central, Oakland in the West. Initial AL impressions?

- In the National League, we we were treated to LA / SD Round 1 this past weekend...  Dodgers are 14-4 entering Thursday night... Milwaukee leading the Central... Mets have played just 13 games so far...  Philly surprising...  Initial NL impressions?
