  1. Well, he has been okay for the Nats thus far. Better than Hellickson has been.
  2. That is not the only issue.....your point is taken...but clearly that is not the biggest reason. Something is broken systemtically with the Orioles and their ability to evaluate and develop starting pitching talent. My guess is the least number of scouts in MLB is part of the issue...failing to spend money for personnel across the board for development. Failure to invest internationally....all bigger reasons.
  3. LOL-well played. Glad we traded a better, cheaper version of him in Miranda. Man, that Duquette is AWESOME. Like trading for Hellickson when Edwin Jackson turned out to be better basically, LOL. Losing to Bridwell twice (I believe, correct me if I am wrong). This team needs new blood at the top.
  4. Everyone see the eclipse? I was at the Washington monument, pretty amazing!
  5. Hays hit a homer on Sunday-that guy is awesome. So is Mullings (Mullings is slumping now however). I am shocked how short both are (at least they seem short in comparison).
  6. I went to the Bowie game on Sunday, I saw David Hess pitch (fan of his) and saw the Baysox win on a nice day. I know Mountcastle is only batting the Mendoza line, but had some nice plays at 3B and a clutch hit. Some terrible calls by the umpire that game too. Baysox going to the playoffs!
  7. Yep-looked awful here, been great with Nats. He is better than Hellickson who we gave up players for-we just look terribly inept no matter what he does (to be clear-I am talking in the starting pitching realm). We CANNOT evaluate starting pitching talent.
  8. Nope, but whatever move DD does to address the starting pitching-is the wrong one-have you noticed that? Edwin Jackson looks good for "Pete's" sake. Something is BROKEN.
  9. Man, thank goodness for Duquette. Another astute starting pitching move. Only if they had someone like Edwin Jackson or Zach Davies or Parker Bridwell. Darn O's-just bad luck.
  10. Per Roch-no Davis. http://www.masnsports.com/school-of-roch/2017/08/orioles-lineup-vs-angels-15.html
  11. Duquette is the worst evaluator of starting pitching I have ever seen. It's awful. Is it 100% on him? or the fact we have the least number of scouts in all of mlb? or the fact we won't let people throw the cutter? or the % of offspeed vs. fastballs? or some other undiscussed topic? I don't know-but it's got to change, like yesterday.
  12. The funny thing is-he was the one responsible for overpaying for him, not DD.
  13. But man oh man did that Parra pay dividends in the playoffs!
  14. Ouch! http://mlb.mlb.com/stats/sortable.jsp#elem=[object+Object]&tab_level=child&click_text=Sortable+Player+hitting&game_type='R'&season=2017&season_type=ANY&league_code='MLB'&sectionType=sp&statType=hitting&page=1&ts=1502813843081&sortColumn=obp&sortOrder='desc'&extended=0 Not shocking, but still.. Hard to get back into baseball after the events of this weekend...losing the faith in mankind.
  15. Agreed, but you don't think it is a bit ..umm.."unlucky" that he sold this guy for cash and claimed about 10-20 pitchers that all were pretty much garbage. I mean there is bad luck, and there is incompetency in evaluation pitching talent. Miguel Castro looks good, Bleier was signed in the offseason...all the other waiver claims...swing and a miss. I am sorry, but no organization is just that unlucky. Something is systematically wrong.
