He'll only rise as he gets enough at bats to qualify more legitimately. If under qualified, they add 0/1 as many times as needed to make you qualify... So that's even counting against him.

He's been a great surprise, another great find. Waiting for Snider to show his worth...

He just qualified last night officially! He's third behind De. Brown and Nellie. If we could sweep the Marlins that would be huge. We have a tough stretch coming up with two series against the red hot Astros and a series against the division leading Rays.

When an NFL season is over, there is a game or a stretch of them that usually defines it. The Ravens are about to enter one of those periods.

Amazingly, we score 4 runs off arguably the ALs hottest pitcher on Sunday; then can't score squat off Os castoff Marty Feldman tonight.

Haven't been able to touch Feldman since he left the O's. Not that you're going to win on one run, but hate when we give up the lead right after we take it.

Mean while, the "HitParades" continues...

They should have traded Weit and Davis after 2013.  They could have had a lot if young talent actually here and helping.

Calm down Va, go back and look at last year's record, we finished 30 games over 500, despite playing 500 ball April,May and June. We put it together from July on...

This team is a well seasoned race horse, the good ones hang mid lack and make their move at the 1/2 mile pole. I like where we are sitting, 2 1/2 off the lead.

I was off. I expected this weeks ago. Your "should of" posts usually arrive much quicker. I think Ray Rice was the next day. You're getting older and slower. Sad

As it's your opinion it doesn't make it any more true either. The season is far from over and one or both of them could contribute in a meaningful way.

Your forgot to bitch about JJ being re-signed.

I said Davis had an outlier in 2013.  If you think that was the norm how do you explain the last 2 seasons?  Also Weit got hurt and it looks like he will not have time to get hot before the trade deadline.

I don't care about not trading Wieters or Davis. We'll get draft picks like we did with Nellie. Baseball is different than football because prospects and draft picks are such a crapshoot and the amount of development time is long and costly.

What gets me mad is we invest the money in a prospect, take the time to develop them, they don't produce for us. We trade them only to have them become great for another team. See Arrieta. We gave this guy every chance in the world and he was absolutely terrible for us. We trade him to the Cubs and he becomes a star. He's under team control for two more years. Bad trading a cheap guy under control with talent, no matter if he's a bust or not.

Eduardo Rodriguez pitched a gem for the Sox last night. Only 22-years old from the DR. We always talk about signing these international prospects and when we finally get a good one we trade him. Granted, Rodriguez was a B-level prospect for us and Andrew Miller could have won us a World Series.

It's frustrating, we trade Arrieta, keep Matusz. We trade Rodriguez, keep Bundy. The guys we keep don't work out and the guys we let go become better. Hindsight is 20-20, but man does it seem like we have terrible luck with pitching prospects! There is definitely some sort of organization problem with pitching instruction.

Looking at our current roster, there is no home grown talent outside of can't miss guys like Machado and Wieters. Duquette is great at finding other team's leftovers and under the radar free agents. But we have a big problem with developing home grown stars, much less serviceable players.

I look at the  Bedard trade.  That just kept paying dividends.  We should have some the same to Weit and Davis so they could payoff longer.
