Looks like they can afford to give up a lot of these pitchers w/no great loss.

Fernando Abad
Mike Baumann
Marcos Diplán
Chris Ellis
Paul Fry
Conner Greene
Eric Hanhold
Joey Krehbiel
Dean Kremer
Brooks Kriske
Zac Lowther
Isaac Mattson
John Means
Tanner Scott
Cole Sulser
Dillon Tate
Spenser Watkins
Tyler Wells
Alexander Wells
Bruce Zimmermann

The apparent locks to remain are Baumann, Ellis, Fry, Kremer, Lowther, Means, Scott, Sulser, Tate, Zimmermann, Tyler Wells and Alexander Wells. Mattson had a difficult and disappointing season at Norfolk and with the Orioles, but you probably can include him, as well. He should get a mulligan.

Why does one turd get a mulligan? I didn't get that.

I expect that the turds on that list that don't return will be replaced by new turds.

I was thinking of the Astro Way. They're back in the WS again. The pitching from the Verlander/Cole/Morton team is flipped. I don't know for whom. Nevertheless, they persist. It's interesting when applied to what's building in our minor league system.

Roch: "Catcher Austin Wynns, infielder Pat Valaika and pitchers Thomas Eshelman and Konner Wade elected free agency after clearing outright waivers"

Seeing them back in the WS and looking at their string of first place finishes calls to mind Elias' saying that he doesn't want to build A good team in Baltimore but a succession of them.

A few of you here will remember that we had this once, many years ago with the "Oriole Way" organization. There was the first wave of "Baby Birds" in the early 1960's through the early 1980's w/Ripken, Boddicker, and Dauer. They had talent at every minor league level back then, and we have some of that now.

Severino, Greene and Diplan outrighted. Diplan wasn't as horrible as half the other guys.

We have room now. Even for rule 5 picks. That draft is scheduled for a couple of days after the collective bargaining agreement ends. It might be rescheduled. To June.

Signed Fox today, who can't hit equally from both sides.

Loogy. Wonder if he'll have to pitch to three batters?
