In O’s news: updates on the GM search Matt Adams Jersey , the future of Duquette and Showalter, and the BirdsIf the Orioles do not sign Victor Victor Mesa. Victor Mesa Jr. or Sandy Gaston should we look at the July 2018 sell-off as a massive failure? It’s impossible to know until those three develop, and it will certainly be disappointing, but my inclination is to lean towards “no.”Mesa is a good player, and an enticing prospect. It’s no mistake that every team with available international money wants him in their organization. He’s the top foreign amateur on the market. But this is not the same market as in year’s past. Last season’s top target was Shohei Ohtani, a consensus all-world talent that has the chance to be an all-time great both on the mound and with the bat. Mesa, simply put, is not that type of player.The valuation I have commonly seen put on him is similar to that of a mid-to-late first round draft pick. It would be awesome for the Orioles to add another first round pick to their farm system, but it’s not something that will transform the organization overnight.On top of that, Mesa is a 22-year-old outfielder. The one area that the O’s minor leagues do not really need help is in outfield depth, especially in the high minors, which is where Mesa would end up. Cedric Mullins just debuted in Baltimore. Austin Hays is expected back there soon after an injury-plagued 2018. Yusniel Diaz is the top youngster in the system. Ryan McKenna is rising up prospect lists. And who knows if left field is Ryan Mountcastle’s eventual home. The club has its fill of outfielders. Mesa Jr. is also an outfielder and Gaston is a young raw pitcher. Both of them are teenagers Kevin Long Jersey , so it changes the math a lot. Will they be good? Maybe. Who knows. It could be worth it to find out, but there is a lot of projecting to be done there.What must come out of this entire process is that the Orioles develop a plan on the international market. There are relationships to be built and processes to learn. It’s not as if they have come up empty. Baseball America has credited them with two signings, and there may be other agreed to pacts that have yet to be signed. These are the early growing pains of a team still learning how to walk in this arena. TweetsLinksThe latest non-update update - MASN SportsAs the title suggests, Roch explains that nothing much has officially happened on any front. He does say, however, that the next braintrust the Orioles hire will “push the analytics agenda.” At the same time, Ned Colletti’s name has been bounded about for a job with the O’s, which sounds counter-intuitive.Marlins Acquire International Pool Money From Astros - MLB Trade RumorsYou can see the official tallies in the MLB Pipeline tweet above. The Marlins set out to add a ton of international signing money, and they have now passed the Orioles total. If cash is the number one driver, the Fish can now out-spend the O’s, but it still looks to be an insufficient amount to land all three of the remaining big-name talents. Perhaps the O’s will be happy with one out of three. Who knows. The whole process has been fairly opaque.Will Duquette and Showalter get top jobs elsewhere - The AthleticPerhaps one day, but it’s unlikely to happen in 2019. The league needs some breathing room from the two men that guided the worst team in the sport. A model for Orioles’ lefty prospects, Cy Young winner Dallas Keuchel - Baltimore SunMeoli makes the point that the O’s have a ton of “pitchability” southpaws in their system. That’s the exact way that Dallas Keuchel was defined coming through the Houston minor leagues , and he developed into a Cy Young winner. The 2019 season should be a big year for all of them. Zac Lowther and Alex Wells will be challenged in Double-A. Keegan Akin could make it all the way to Baltimore at some point. Orioles birthdays and historyIs it your birthday? Happy Birthday! It is also the birthday of Ken Dixon (b. 1960), a right-handed pitcher that accumulated a 4.66 ERA over 482.1 innings for the Orioles over four seasons from 1984-1987. Happy 61st to Kelly Paris, a utility infielder in Baltimore for 10 games between ‘85 and ‘86. And shout out to Jim Hutto, an outfielder for four games during the 1974 season; he turns 71 today.1971 - The Orioles are defeated 2-1 in game seven of the World Series by the Pittsburgh Pirates. Roberto Clemente hits a home run off of Mike Cuellar and is named series MVP.1979 - It happened again. The Willy-Stargell led “We Are Family” Pirates defeat the O’s 4-1 in game seven of the World Series. A Rich Dauer home run was the only scoring done by the Birds. BOSTON — A report surfaced Saturday that had Nathan Eovaldi emerging as the Boston Red Sox’s fourth starter in their upcoming American League Division Series.The news, from Ken Rosenthal of the The Athletic, had Eovaldi jumping ahead of the struggling Eduardo Rodriguez to start Game 4 of the American League Division Series — because of his success against the New York Yankees.“We saw what happened this week,” said manager Alex Cora. “We have a pretty good idea who matches well with the Yankees.”Article continues below ...Last week, Eovaldi, picked up in July from the Tampa Bay Rays, pitched six shutout innings against the Yankees in the Bronx, which would be the site of a potential Game 4 of the first round. Rodriguez had a poor start in that same series.The Red Sox, of course, are also scouting the Oakland A’s Ryan Zimmerman Jersey , who will play the Yankees in a wild-card game.“(Rodriguez) likely is out of the division series rotation with Nathan Eovaldi opening the series in the bullpen and then being able to start Game 4 if necessary,” Rosenthal said.Meanwhile, Eovaldi, who faces the Baltimore Orioles — and Dylan Bundy — in the opener of a three-game series and the start of the regular season-ending seven-game homestand Monday night, hasn’t won in his last eight starts, going 0-3. He started his stay with the Red Sox with a pair of no-run outings, but has been sporadic since.The right-hander is 5-7 with a 3.98 ERA overall this season, 2-3 with a 3.64 ERA in nine starts with Boston.Eovaldi is 2-0 with a 5.16 ERA in six career starts against the Orioles.The Red Sox equaled the franchise record of 105 wins with a victory in Cleveland Friday night — a night after celebrating winning the American League East in New York — but then lost Saturday and Sunday nights. They fell to the Indians in 11 innings Sunday night.Bundy, like most of the Orioles, is suffering through a miserable season, coming in at 8-15 with a 5.37 ERA. He is 1-6 in his last nine starts and is 0-2 in four starts against the Red Sox this season.The Red Sox are 14-2 against the Orioles this season, 6-1 at Fenway Park — after Baltimore went 6-3 against the Sox at Fenway each of the last two seasons.Caleb Joseph is 5-for-9 (.556) with a home run, Adam Jones 6-for-17 (.353) and Chris Davis 4-for-13 (.308) with two homers against Eovaldi.The Red Sox have some strong numbers against Bundy.Brock Holt , who has been so vital for his team down the stretch, is 8-for-13 (.615), Steve Pearce 3-for-8 (.375), Sandy Leon 4-for-12 (.333) with a homer, Xander Bogaerts 9-for-29 (.310) with two homers and Andrew Benintendi 8-for-26 (.308) with a home run.Mookie Betts is at just .258 (8-for-31) but has three home runs against Eovaldi, while Eduardo Nunez is 1-for-8 (.125), Mitch Moreland 4-for-24 (.167) and J.D. Martinez 2-for-11 (.182).With the Red Sox concentrating on getting through the final week while setting up their postseason pitching and trying to prevent injuries, there’s no telling what kind of lineup Cora might put out onto the field in this series.Bogaerts left Sunday night’s game during an at-bat with left shoulder soreness, the move announced as precautionary. Eduardo Nunez remained out with a sore knee but is expected to return early in the week.Mike Wright came on during the first Yankee at-bat of the game after Alex Cobb suffered a recurrence of his blister trouble. Wright walked the bases loaded (finishing the opening walk) and allowed three runs in that first inning but that was all for the Yankees for the day.“I mean usually you’re kind of aware whether or not you’re the long guy for the day,” Wright said. “Obviously Alex had issues with his fingers before, so we were kind of on high alert. Once I saw somebody go out I was pretty much ready to go in the game.”
