Misery Rings Eternal - The 2020 Orioles


Recommended Posts

  • 2 weeks later...

105+ losses. There is no consistent starting pitching outside of maybe Cobb and the offense will score less than 3 runs a lot. I won't be watching the O's much at all. Mainly the minors.

Austin Hays should be the starting RF on opening day.

 

He sprained his thumb over the weekend. Probably out for a couple weeks. 

 

Trumbo out, Hays out, Cobb out - Not only are they dismal, but they can't even start close to their best 10 to start the year.

Hays was my prediction before he got demoted. There are only a couple guys worth following currently on the MLB roster. It's pretty terrible.

Chris Davis hit another homerun today, pushes his OPS to 770 (according to a post on OH).  He's definitely making the team.   I can't see his release anytime before next year.  They'll give him at least half the year, even if he's terrible.  By then, they'll be close to the trade deadline and September call-ups that his roster spot won't matter much, plus they can stash him on the 30-day/60-day DL if necessary.

Him showing any kind of improvement is pretty terrible for this team.

Any prediction for wins?  I'm going to go with 43.  Seems harsh, but I don't see how we improved over last year.   I just don't see much talent on this team at all.   There could be a few surprises from our young guys but it won't make up for the disaster that is the starting rotation and a so-so bullpen.

45 wins or so.

 

Depends on if they bring up guys like Hays, Diaz, and when.  As it stands right now, this is a terrible, terrible team.  At least some of the younger players might provide a bit of a spark or prove to be better than what's currently on the roster.

If only there was a single guy in that lineup that I thought had potential to be anything more than average or that was worth tuning in to watch.

 

I appreciate rebuilding, but the over/under on guys in  that lineup still on the team in 3 years has gotta be 1.

And sadly that 1 will be Chris Davis.

Norfolk is better.

Mike Elias hopefully learned a good lesson about messaging this spring training. Messaging to fans and, more importantly, messaging to the young players is so important in a rebuild. 

 

55 wins this season. Gonna be tough.

“Who the **** are these guys?”

Diaz, Mountcastle, Hays, Sisco and Scott are a lot more we’ll known. They just are being told to earn their callup.

The good news is that we're all expecting this by now so the disappointment should be minimal.

 

We're picking first in the draft this June and likely again next June, and hopefully we'll continue to stockpile prospects.  This year will be brutal, we should see some good improvement in 2020 and definitely 2021, and hopefully we'll be legitimately competing in 2022.  Gonna be a long road, but rebuilds always are.

Yeah, nothing I saw today changed my opinion on the team or what will happen this year. One of the best teams in baseball playing what will most likely be the worst. We know it’s going to be a long year and it’s going to be a few before they are competitive.
