Buck Showalter said a lot about his ambiguous future here's what stuck out to me: "You've got to have expectations of winning, regardless of if you're, whatever they call it nowadays--building. I don't believe in rebuild, the word rebuild." #Orioles

Trey Mancini singles to score Jonathan Villar, who doubled to open the fourth and stole third. He has stolen third four times with the Orioles. Then, Mancini scored from first on a double down the LF line by Tim Beckham. 2-0 Orioles.

Jimmy Yacabonis is done after four shutout innings, with one hit, two walks, and a strikeout. He ends the year with a 5.40 ERA, thanks to a September that featured a 2.61 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP. It's probably just a coincidence he didn't travel back to Norfolk between outings.
Jones will replaced by Rickard in left tips it camp to fans in outfield, gets a hug from Trey Mancini, tips cap to #Astros dugout and gives hugs to teammates and coaches standing outside #Orioles dugout, waves to the crowd before disappearing into the dugout. Fans standing too.

The Orioles win, 4-0. It was a one-hit shutout by Yacabonis, Fry, Givens. On possibly the last day here for Showalter and Jones, every pitch thrown and hit collected was by a presumptive member of the 2019 Orioles. They are 47-115.
Showalter’s eyes got watery when he was asked whether he heard the cheers for him when he came out of the dugout. #orioles

Adam Jones says he appreciates how Baltimore appreciates people who show up to work and post up, that his family’s happiness will be paramount in his free agency, and he’s excited to go somewhere his skill set is appreciated. #Orioles

The Orioles won today not because of the people who are leaving, but those who will be back, in a one-hit shutout by pitchers who will be here in 2019 and RBI hits for Trey Mancini, Tim Beckham, Renato Núñez. bsun.md/2zGhiva
