Yep, I’m still annoyed with the O’s, so I’m continuing to keep track of several of the players they’ve traded or failed to re-sign. Apparently, I’m not the only who does this.

The list includes my favorites, Adam Jones, Jonathan Schoop, Manny Machado, and Nick Markakis (even though he’s on the IL right now with a fractured wrist), and a few other guys. For this month, I’ve added Mike Yastrzemski, another guy the O’s never should have traded, since he was called up to the Giants on May 25. I’ve also added Aderlin Rodriguez, who was one of my favorite Bowie Baysox, who is currently a member of the San Diego Padres triple-A affiliate, the El Paso Chihuahuas (unfortunately he’s on the IL right now, too).

Here are the latest stats:

Former Oriole Games AB Avg OBP RBI HR
Adam Jones 102 385 .268 .317 51 13
Christian Walker 105 366 .257 .348 53 20
Nick Markakis 104 366 .284 .358 55 9
Manny Machado 108 418 .278 .347 69 26
Jonathan Schoop 89 331 .254 .301 44 16
Nelson Cruz 84 312 .292 .383 72 30
Mike Yastrzemski 61 209 .268 .322 34 10
Aderlin Rodriguez 52 170 .300 .318 37 10
2019 Orioles 112 3,858 .244 .306 466 141

[Note that I’ve removed Caleb Joseph from the list because he has not had much playing time – he was optioned to the Reno Aces on 5/2/2019, recalled to the Diamondbacks on 6/14, re-optioned on 6/28, and is currently on the IL. Tim Beckham has been removed from the list because on Tuesday, MLB announced that he had been suspended for 80 games for testing positive for the banned performance-enhancing drug Stanozolol.]

While the position players are mostly doing well elsewhere, that really can’t be said for the pitchers. Kevin Gausman, for example, was recently claimed off waivers by the Cincinnati Reds after struggling in Atlanta. Brad Brach was DFA’d on August 3rd and released two days later. However, I added Eduardo Rodriguez to the list, because, even though he’s with the Red Sox now, I did like him when he was with the Baysox.

 Former Oriole Games IP W-L % ERA
Zack Britton 50 47.0 .750 2.30
Eduardo Rodriguez 23 135.1 .722 4.14
Kevin Gausman 16 80.0 .300 6.19
Brad Brach 42 39.2 .571 6.13
2019 Orioles 112 994.1 .339 5.59

Happy Stat-urday!

Best of the Week: 5/12/2019 – 5/18/2019


Once again, the Best of the Week involves Adam Jones. The D-backs put together a nice video of his work:

And let’s not forget the night he pied himself this week:

Best of the Week: 5/5/2019 – 5/11/2019


It was a week where the Nationals lost four in a row and the Orioles lost 2 out of 3 to the Red Sox. But at least Adam Jones is still out there protecting the outfield and entertaining us. (It’s just unfortunate that he’s no longer on one of my favorite teams).

On Thursday, Jones robbed Ronald Acuna, Jr., of a home run, then posted a video of himself loading up on sugar:

 And this is what he was eating:

Once again, Adam Jones was the best of the week!

Robinson Cano’s cleats and tweet for Jackie Robinson Day top my list of the Best of the Week:

 And this was totally awesome too:

I miss Jones and Markakis!
