  1. I think you try and get a third baseman, hopefully a young third baseman back in the trade.
  2. He's certainly done some things with trades that I would not have, but the guy is about as active as you can be watching the waiver wire and using his international money that Angelos won't let him spend for something. I really think most of the bad resignings were not really on him. Dan doesn't come off as the most sentimental guy but Buck is all about loyalty and being surrounded by his guys. Most of the resigns like Hardy, O'day, Davis and Trumbo were his guys. Then again, I think that plays well with Angelos who I've always believed thinks the fans wants to see "fan favorites" more than wanting to win. Me, I'll trade anyone if I think I could make my team better now and in the future. I believe fans fall in love with players when they do well and win. Who knows, maybe I'm wrong, but I'd much rather see a young hungry team developing with the potential to be a World Series caliber team someday then watching the same old team basically try and slide into the wild card and hope things go well from there.
  3. Actually, that's not true at all. Duquette if anything is over analytical. He's a very smart man. He's working in a very difficult situation but it was way back into baseball.
  4. I was told by someone in the warehouse that this was "Buck's signing" not Dan's. Dan was willing to let him walk.

  6. It does and it's the reason why the Orioles can't repeat the failures of the past to properly rebuild. McPhail started this organization on the right path with his Bedard and Tejada trades. Duquette or whoever is GM will need to do the same this offseason. The big difference is McPhail didn't have the albatross contracts like Davis and even Trumbo to some extent. Machado must be resigned to a 10-year contract or traded this offseason. If the offers aren't good enough then you hold on to him and hope someone gets desperate around the All-star break, but I have to imagine a Machado rental won't bring the type of return this organization needs.

    I wish. My wife didn't have the time to take off or I would have come over. Never been to London. Have fun and let us know your thoughts on how things went over there.

    At this point, you have to ask yourself, for who? Who has extra interior lineman they are willing to trade? I think he and his team will continue to scour the practice squad film and look for guys that might be able to help.
  9. 2017 Week 3: Ravens vs. Jaguars (in London)

    Looking at PFF for this matchup, Jacksonville appears to have some pretty bad lineman so the Ravens should get some pressure on Bortles. LT Cam Robinson has been one of th worse LT in the NFL thru two games at 41, so Suggs could have a big day. Defensively, Jacksonville has graded out pretty well so far with their weaknesses being at FS (Tashaun Gipson - 55.6) and LT (Malik Jackson - 48.8). Ravens could have some problems running the ball, especially with Yanda out (Bergstrom graded out a horrible 37.4 when he replaced him) and especially to the left side with YANNICK NGAKOUE and ABRY JONES on that side of the line. I think the Ravens will have to throw the ball down the field this game to score points and they haven't shown an ability to do that so far this year. The Ravens will need their defense to step up once again and create turnovers and win the field position game. Tucker should get a lot of opportunities in this game. I think this game is going to be closer then some thing, especially with the travel to London being a wild card. Ravens - 16 Jaguars -10
  10. That's an interesting point. i know West was hurt, but he did go right back to Collins instead of Allen after the fumble.
  11. 2017 Week 3: Ravens vs. Jaguars (in London)

    I think the Browns were able to run the ball a little better with Williams out, but the lack of pass rush in my mind more had to do with the fact that Ravens were dropping a lot of guys back and trying to confuse Kizer while protecting their lead.
  12. 2017 Week 3: Ravens vs. Jaguars (in London)

    Whenever I hear it's not long term but Harbaugh is pretty mum it makes me have concerns. Hopefully Williams will be back because he's been a beast so far this year.
  13. Thanks. You make some good points about the secondary although I do think Smith is pretty comparable to McAlister although McAlister's ability to stay healthy made him a better player overall. Both are/were shutdown big corners and although I'd probably say McAlister was maybe slightly better in run protection, when they wee on the field I feel they were comparable players. Watson is definitely the number one TE on this team, especially with Boyle and Williams picking up some H-back time. I really wish Crockett Gilmore would be able to stay healthy. I felt he was the future #1 but now perhaps that will end up Williams afterall.
  14. Thanks. I really didn't notice Williams all that much in my one time of viewing the game at my inlaws house so I really can't give an analysis of his play. Reading up on the game afterwards, it sounded like he had some success when he was in there, but he didn't stand out for me (which can also be good because that means he didn't do anything awful either). Our line without Yanda because more of a question mark obviously. this team has now lost three projected starters in Yanda, Lewis and Urschel so we're going to find out how good the backups are. So far the rest of the line has been pretty good but you can't candy coat the loss of Yanda and what he means to the O-line.
  15. You don't have to say it, I will. You can have any opinion you like, but in MY experience following these players, many of the Top prospects don't spend a full season in AAA or need to spend much time there at all. Never said they don't spend any time in AAA, just that many do not play a lot of games in AAA. I'm sure you've talked to as many scouts and baseball people as me and spent time watching 1000s of minor league games so if you'd like to tell us about the importance of playing a long time in AAA and how it improves the development of players I'm more than willing to learn from you. Any additional minor league time can help in the development of a player, even AAA, but it's not necessary to have success in the major leagues.
