    The general wisdom has always been that a Double A team should win 60 games at the MLB level, just through statistical chance. Are the O's even going to win 50?

    They just sent Cashner to the Red Saux for a two 17 year olds in the Dominican. Bundy is hurt but sucks anyway. If they peddle Mancini or Vilar they are going to get worse . Next up would be open tryouts.

    Kills me that most guys breaking pitches are faster than what was my best fastball. I can remember back when I was coming up that 86mph was the MLB average, that is what you need to try and get to. Ha!

    I just couldn't get it any faster.

    The plan is to finish LAST. They are not trying to win. Get the #1 pick.

    It is the Astros model. Build your foundation with homegrown 1st round draft picks. Then add International players (16 to 18 year old signees). Then lastly add Free Agents and Veteran Trades to finish out your roster.

    "IT WORKS"

    Alex Bregman - 1st round
    Carlos Correa - 1st round
    Lance McCullers Jr - 1st round
    George Springer - 1st round

    I don't think Mike Cuellar ever broke 90 mph. They would wheel him out the night after Palmer pitched and guys would chop wood. Then Scott McGregor took the job after Cuellar retired. The magic years of Oriole baseball 1966- 1983

    That's all fine and I hope it happens. But the current ownership has to give the purse string to Elias too. That's never happened since the Angelos family bought the team. They had a nucleus in 96 and 2014 and they got tight and blew it both times. Oh yeah then there's the Yankers and Red Saux lol.

    Greg Maddux probably wouldn’t get a look in this day in age because he didn’t throw 95+.

    He had all the left hand junk pitches but not as good as Cuellar then strike you out with a 85mph fastball. Orioles also had Jamie Moyer early in his career but they let him go(dumb) same type pitcher.

    We need either Will Smith from the Giants or Kirby Yates from the Padres.

    No! You need Ian Kennedy. He has reinvented himself as a closer. 14 of 17 I believe.
