Best kid article of the year. Spoiler alert. What do you think is the major league average OBP? I was WHO?!? 20 points over.

No mention of the pitchers they drafted. They picked all position players first, then scraped the bottom of the barrel for pitchers.

Every time I read things like that I think they are talking about a different organisation ...😎

They are Mike, I must confes when Elias started and pick all those position players I thought what the hell but now the real talent is popping out of our ears and we are in a great position to trade for pitching and our payroll is low enough to sign good free-agent pitching.

For you lifelong Orioles fans it is normal to have a good farm, the Oriole Way, but I have never seen it. Of course, it helps when you can pick first and get guys like Rutschman or Holiday but it is not that alone the whole FO seems to be data-driven and it pays off. Loving it ...

Btw, can not wait to see what the international talent brings us ... 👍

This is the key year. We'll see what has resulted and what kinds of deals the Orioles make.

Check out the power and RBI stats on infielders in the upper minors. I've never seen anything like that. Never.Look at the impact just having Rutschman and Henderson had in a fraction of a year. Can you imagine what the full impact of the Orioles' minors will be?

You didn't need the stats to see the difference. Adley, Gunnar and Vulva or whatever, all have one thing in common. None of them will swing at balls a mile out of the zone. In Adley's case, maybe an inch out of the zone. That sucker has a pitchmax in his head. From both sides of the plate too.

Contrast with say Mountcastle, who'd make Adam Jones blush. Or Mateo, who may wind up the utility guy by the end of the year. Unless he learns to hit some. The guy's a phenomenal athlete, and could get a glove named after him, but you can't clog up our lineup hitting .220 anymore.

At times I thought R. put himself in a hole by taking too many fat pitches. But I'd disabuse myself of that idea after watching Mountcastle and Hays fan 3 x/in a game.I wouldn't keep Mateo as a utility. He'd be an absolute sure out instead of near sure out. So.I'd like to trade him. There are good-hitting, D-deficient teams who would take a guy like that.May be Boston if they lose Boegarts.

But as for Mateo, I'd let him stay at short till someone shows he's better.I have the feeling that he w/hit better this year.

Westie and Ortiz banging down the door. Venmo whatever beats Mateo and Odor. The new gold glover needs reps too. He can hit some.
