    Sorry O's fans, but this is pathetic. I would at least acknowledge if the Yankees had no shot. But the Orioles???
    On the other hand, you have different fingers.

    Re: The Baltimore Orioles Thread (merged)

    The Orioles ST home at Ft. Lauderdale and the minor league facility in Sarasota are in terrible shape. 3 teams have refused to play there and the Red Sox even offered to pay bus fare to relocate the games there to a better facility. I like the part about the weight room being in a leaky tent in the parking lot. Welcome to the show, big leaguers! What an embarrassment!

    Re: The Baltimore Orioles Thread (merged)

    Guthrie, Uehara, Hendrickson, Eaton, Simon

    Sherrill
    Ray
    Johnson
    Walker
    Sarfate
    Albers
    Baez or Bass

    Rich Hill will be in the rotation before the end of April.. Hendrickson will go to the pen, and Walker possibly released.

    Brad Bergesen likely to take Eaton's job by the end of April as well.

    Roberts 2nd
    Jones CF
    Markakis RF
    Huff 1st
    Mora 3rd
    Scott DH
    Zaun C
    Pie LF
    Izturis SS

    Moeller, Wiggington, Freel, Andino

    Some conjecture Wieters will not be up until June (Super 2), but most believe he will be promoted April 17th (O's in Fenway that night) when the Orioles gain the extra year of elgibility.

    I imagine you'll be seeing a lot of Scott and Wigginton cycling through DH and LF given that Pie may not be capable of producing at the ML level.

    Scott and Wigginton will get plenty of playing time... but I'm hoping for 400+ plus at-bats from Pie either way.

    In a year where you can not contend, getting regular at-bats for the 24 year-old who has the chance to be part of the future core is a necessity.

    Pie - Turned 24, Feb 8th

    2008 AAA age 23 - 335 at-bats, 802 OPS, 96 hits, 20 doubles, 5 triples, 10 homers, 55 rbi, 11 steals, 7 caught stealing, 54 k's, 23 walks, 287 avg, 336 onbase, 466 slugging

    2007 AAA age 22 - 229 at-bats, 973 OPS, 83 hits, 9 doubles, 5 triples, 9 homers, 43 rbi, 9 steals, 6 caught stealing, 40 k's, 19 walks, 362 avg, 410 onbase, 563 slugging
    2007 & 2008 combined MLB stats - 260 at-bats, 615 OPS, 58 hits, 11 doubles, 4 triples, 3 homers, 30 rbi, 11 steals, 1 caught stealing, 72 k's, 21 walks, 223 avg, 284 onbase, 331 slugging

    Pie 2009 Projected - 270 batting avg, 12 homers, 60 rbi, 738 OPS, 320 on-base, 418 slugging, 35 walks, 140 k's, 20 doubles, 7 triples, 15 steals, 7 caught stealing

    Re: The Baltimore Orioles Thread (merged)

    From Abe's blog:
    Code:
    Monday: LHP CC Sabathia (17-10. 2.70 in 2008) for the Yankees vs. RHP Jeremy Guthrie (10-12, 3.63), 4:05, YES, WCBS 880
    Wednesday: RHP Chien-Ming Wang (8-2, 4.07) vs. RHP Koji Uehara (6-5, 3.81 for Yomiuri Giants), 7:05, YES, WCBS 880
    Thursday: RHP A.J. Burnett (18-10, 4.07) vs. RHP Alfredo Simon (0-0, 6.23), 1:35, YES, WCBS 880
    What is the likelihood of the Yankees dropping a game here? Guthrie got rocked against the Yanks in his sub par spring training. Uehara (whom I used to watch in Japan) is way past his prime and I know nothing about Simon (maybe somebody can enlighten me here). That lineup you guys just posted also doesn't look too scary. 2 out of 3 has to be par for the first series.

    About Alfedro Simon from espn.com-
    "formerly decent prospect with the Giants and Phillies (he was once traded with Ricky Ledee), Simon will apparently stick as the Orioles' No. 3 starter after posting a sub-2.00 ERA this spring. He got hit hard with the O's during a fall call-up last season, and he's long been homer-prone and relatively ineffective throughout his minor-league career. It's very tough to imagine him being able to survive long in an AL East rotation."

    If the 2009 Yankees are anything like the 2008 Yankees, he'll probably go 7 innings with 2 earned and 8 Ks

    If somehow it rains from today until September 30th in every MLB city the Orioles will make the playoffs. It's their only chance!

    The Yankees may not have an easy time of it this series after all. They have to face Koji Uehara in game two, and I understand he has not good, but great, control.

    There is a new feeling at the warehouse this year. Angelos has loosened the purse strings to sign Markakis and Roberts, and there are potent hitters in the lineup.
    The pitching should be improved over last year too.

    Sports Illustrated picked the O's to go 80-82 this year. I think they can break .500 and this will be a winning season for the team.

    Farther from the truth you cannot get. The pitching will be excreble. If not for all year then certainly up to the deadline. I"m not sure how any rotation is improved with the likes of Eaton and Hendrickson.

    Pirates could be worse. Maybe.

    Uehara has a chance to be above average if everything breaks right, Guthrie is good and then you have the question marks.

    That all being said, they still have the best rotation in the BW region.

    No way. The Red Sox will probably get a game or two finished by the end of the season.

    Seems like the Os have started hot every year since about 05 but the cream always rises to the top in the AL East.

    I think 80-82 is optimistic. The important thing is progress. The back of the rotation is hopeless and they are going to get crushed. But that really doesn't matter. What matters is how well Tillman/Matusz/Arrieta do on the farm, how well Adam Jones (and Felix Pie) develop, how quickly Wieters becomes what everyone thinks he will become. Also, what can we get for guys like Scott, Huff, Sherrill and Guthrie at the trade deadline.

    This will hopefully be a very different team in September.
