    Possible Candidates For Next Orioles Manager

    The way things are going it’s probably going to be Bucks handpicked guy. John Russell probably a good bet. And it won’t matter without an overhaul of the roster.
  4. I was 4 and didn’t know what an Oriole was. Not even sure I had ever passed through Maryland yet — it was before I lived here. So the idea that it was just like yesterday or something is absurd. And the direction of things now isn’t going to remedy that.
  5. Considering Buck played a big role in signing Davis, Trumbo, and now Tillman, thats a real big chunk of payroll that could have been put to better use. He brings a ton of great attributes to the club, but shares blame for its flaws too. Is the juice worth the squeeze? Probably still is. But it’s not as clear cut as before.

    Thoughts on Manny @ SS and Beckham @ 3B ??

    Manny never said a peep about SS when Hardy was here because real recognize real. Beckham shows up and now Machado wants to move. Maybe it’s about more $$$ next year. Or maybe it’s because Manny thinks he will be the better option. Maybe it’s both.
  7. GAusmann and Bundy are 1/2 on bad teams. Not if you’re trying to contend. I’m all for getting Almora, but it’s gotta be independent of getting better pitching. And the source for this seems dubious anyway.

    Rule 5 Target - Nate Orf - Utility

    Yea, curious how you would compare Orf to Reyes? Based on the way I read the two write ups I might lean toward Reyes too. At another time I could probably argue for both but not with the current obligations already existing.

    Mountcastle's Ceiling

    Oh I hope not. Can’t play defense. Won’t take pitches. Great bat potential. Great bust potential too.

    Orioles extend offers to bring back coaching staff

    THE pitching coaches never threw a pitch. The reason the Orioles had the worst ERA was because they had really shitty pitchers. Day in and day out even the ones we thought were good were actually hopeless and sucky. No coach exists who can change that. New pitching staff is needed.
  12. One more of the frequent reminders that sports is a business. The owners don’t care a bit about fans, communities or anything like that if they can’t profit off it, and stop someone else from profiting too. And then people want to turn around and judge fans for how they seemingly support teams. Gimme a break.
