DateQuestionAnswer
2019-02-25 16:00:00 (link to chat)Jon, Who gets the majority of the starts for the Orioles this year at SS, and does it matter? Is Rule 5 pick-up Richie Martin worth anything? Is there upside for any of their OF's, like Mullins or Hayes? Thank you!
(Bob from NJ)
Oh, man, why does this feel like a sick joke whose punch line is "Alcides Escobar." It doesn't matter. Nothing matters. Eat at Arby's.

Richie Martin is an AL-only dart throw. Mullins could flirt with 15/15, he'd be the only Oriole OF I'd look seriously at in a mixed league. (Jon Hegglund)
2018-12-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Mark, Is Richie Martin the answer for the Orioles at SS for the long haul or is he just a stop-gap? What do you see for him in 2019? Was he the best choice for first pick of the Rule 5 draft? Thanks!
(Mr. Tibbs from Philly)
I don't know enough to say if he was the best choice for #1, but Martin has been a name in prospect circles for awhile, so it will be fun to see him get a chance to play. He could be a sneaky good end game option for speed too, and if his contact rates transfer, he'll be a nice piece. (Mark Barry)
2016-09-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Was Richie Martin's late season surge for real?
(Ford from Layover in KC)
Oh yeah, you can be excited about him, too. (Christopher Crawford)
2016-09-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Does Richie Martin ever hit enough to be a full time player for the A's?
(Dustin from Arlington)
I don't think so. (Brendan Gawlowski)
2015-12-01 14:00:00 (link to chat)Of the following crew of current shortstops how many, if any, can stick at the position: Franklin Barreto, Chad Pinder, Yairo Munoz, Richie Martin, and Mikey White?
(Jack from San Jose )
This is a GREAT question. We are starting this chat off with a GREAT question. I would say all but Pinder have a realistic chance of staying at shortstop. If I was betting on which ones would, however, I'd say Martin and Barreto. Pinder will play it as a utility guy, and the same to White, but I can't see it regularly. (Christopher Crawford)
