They must have high hopes for him.

Hillary's Vast Right-Wing Cons...
Just the kind of trade I didn't want them to make. I'da kept him I think. On the other hand, for 2 months of Trey, it's not a bad return I guess.And how REALLY good has Mancini been this year? Glad he's getting a chance with a good team.
Bringing up YDiaz is a great idea too.Play the guy and see what he's got. If he's no good, you've answered a question that's been hanging for 5 yrs and also getting a dead weight off the 40-man roster.He's done as much as he'll do in the minors.Maybe they'll get rid of McKenna now or at least send him down.(Also Odor)Frankly, I'd pencil Diaz in the starting lineup the rest of the year.

And BTW, maybe they can give Stewart a final look later when he's healthy.Hit well for Norfolk and could be your DH.

Lopez goes to Minnesota for 4 young pitchers.


Progressives lack compassion and tolerance. Their self-aggrandizement is all that matters.

Decent people cannot fathom the amoral cruelty of the Biden regime.

We traded proven talent for a bunch of question marks. Only time will tell if these were good deals or bad deals.

Executive vice president and general manager Mike Elias, speaking about the Mancini trade on Monday, said, “I have to tether my decisions to the outlook and the probabilities of this year,” outlining that while the Orioles have a chance at a Wild Card spot, “it it is not a probability that we're going to win a Wild Card.”

Why not dumb ass!?

Mancini and Lopez weren't crucial to our wildcard chances this year anyway. They were decent, but surplus.

They are very much right in the race and it’s Aug 3 with 58 games left.

After last night's second straight win in Texas, by an 8-2 score, the Orioles are 53-51 and are just 1 1/2 games out of the last American League playoff spot. The O's lost two key players and have responded with two big wins over Texas.

Feller made a good point on FB. Six new minor league players are going to require some space being made. I don't know if that means promotions up the chain, or releases of low level bums. Probably the latter.
