(TGisriel from Baltimore)
He'll get a NRI at the very least, but unless he has friends in one particular organization or another--not the Orioles--it seems dubious that he's going to be worth much as a utilityman, and certainly should be seen as lock to start at third base for anybody. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-08-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)The Orioles are hitting .311/.372/.511 in the 30 games since the All-Star break and are now 3rd in the AL in runs behind Texas and Boston. Should they sign a few big pitchers next season and make a push, or is this season's offense just a collection of career years?
(Steve from Baltimore)
The latter. There's some good players here--Nick Markakis, Brian Roberts, Adam Jones (now hurt)--but the recent push is about guys like Aubrey Huff and Melvin Mora, who have no future here. (Joe Sheehan)
