    How long does your blank check for Elias last?

    Our outfield defense was pretty good in 2014 β€” +17.7 UZR. The Royals, on the other hand, were unbelievably good β€” +42.4 UZR. And they played great in that series.

    His hair should be white as snow after a year as GM of the Orioles.

    That was because KC outfielders were super fast and the Orioles outfielders were all slow.

    I think people don’t give that Royals team enough credit. They finished that season 41-23 (.640), then won the WC game, swept the Angels, swept the Orioles and lost a hard fought World Series in 7 games. Then they turned right around and won 95 games and the World Series the following season. It was a very good team that was coming into its own the last couple of months of 2014. Great outfield defense, great bullpen, great team speed.

    Top Manager Candidates

    I don't think Dauer wants to coach full time at the Major League level. I think he would prefer something like roving instructor.

    Top Manager Candidates

    I feel like we should get a young manager from the minors who has had good success developing players and gets them playing the right way. Someone we can get for under a million a year. Use the extra money we save over some named coach who won't help the team on International signing and scouts.

    Top Manager Candidates

    It's funny, I think my criteria is almost the opposite of the GM search. For GM I wanted a guy that was good with Analytics and new age approaches, however they worked with a lower payroll team. For manager, they just need to work with the talent they have and use the tools provided. You mention a bunch of bigger payroll teams, but I agree they are probably more prepared to use other data to assist the GM plan. Not that other guys couldn't, but those guys likely are ready to go.

    BABIP. Everything that KC hit dropped in, everything Baltimore hit was caught.

    Everything went KC's way that could happen and nothing ours. Still kills me because that quite honestly was the best Orioles team in my life with maybe the '97 team only better.

    I doubt the manager decision will get much negativity towards it. I expect a low salary hire as why pay top dollar for someone. Just need someone who is good at developing players and not so much concern about game time decisions or ability to talk to the press.

    Competitive Balance Draft Picks 2019

    The more picks you can acquire in baseball the better as it is such a crapshoot in MLB drafts. Look at the 2011 Red Sox draft. They didn't get much out of their first 3 first round picks. They hit on their fourth first round pick though. And they got a total of 61 WAR out of that draft so far. And they had many bad drafts after that one.

    As someone told me recently, it is what it is. πŸ˜‰ I was speaking for myself alone out of my experience. Besides, in the switch to the new rep system, I lost a ton more than one downvote.😎 Carry on my wayward sons

    It cannot be overstated how much Bobby Valentine underachieved with that team.

    Ned Yost's voodoo powers caused the failure. Markakis, Jones, Cruz, Pearce, and Hardy also should have figured out a way to score more than one run off of Jeremy freakin' Guthrie and Jason freakin' Vargas.

    Reminder - Elias Presser Today at 11 am

    Players have said they don't like Brady in the locker room and competent coaches have quit because of his interfering with them. I am not sure why anyone would want Brady on their team. He isn't a team player. He is a Brady look at me aren't I cool. I am smarter than you and this guy who has been awful for 10 years is just because you are a bad coach. And I think he wears a toupee.

    Certain posters down vote if you prove him wrong. I think down votes should be eliminated. What purpose do they serve? On Reddit they make posts hidden if they get too many down votes. Also hurts your Karma which won't allow you to post on certain forums if you have negative Karma. All it does here is make it less friendly atmosphere. Up votes I think should stay as they are friendly gestures.

    Reminder - Elias Presser Today at 11 am

    How could you be excited when no one knows what he did (or does)? I'm fine if Elias wants to give him a free pass for now as long as he clearly defines his role. And if proves that he's unable to stay in his lane then he isn't afraid to let him go. This whole Brady situation hits a bit close to home for me. I work with a person who has a very "broad" role and seems to insert herself whenever and where ever she wants do while never taking ownership or responsibility for anything. I can tell you first hand that this approach doesn't work and just creates frustration and resentment.
