    Sisco optioned to Norfolk

    I don't understand this move. With a 20-50 record why not let Chance get as much experience as possible?. We should be bringing up more youngsters up not send them down. Unless Buck believes we will win the next 35 games in row to be a wild card contender.

    Orioles have interviewed Ned Colletti, and others

    Hope we can get someone to get the correct trades for Machado,Britton,A.Jones and Brach before it is too late This is essential to do this , the O's future will depends on this move, no joke.

    Does anybody REALLY care any more?

    Where are the farm prospects being brought up to see what they can do? Where is the effort to change the front office philosophy. I am sick and tired of checking the news and the O's act like it is just another day with no effort to change direction. What is the point of PA to stop any progress his team may do to improve. I understand he has tried and spent money on players that were previously good that turned into busts and it is probably bad luck, but why not try something else instead of just sitting back doing nothing. They could make something beneficial out of a lost season like treat the rest of the year like spring training. What really pisses me off is Showalter's self righteousness that he says he will put his best team out there to not affect the pennant races. HE NEEDS TO DO WHAT IS BEST FOR THE ORIOLES NOT HIS CRAPPY SELF RIGHTEOUSNESS. They need to FIRE him now, I mean today. They need a manager who is going to check every prospect and see what they can do to know what they got for the future plans. I am so sick of this stupid organization Someone needs to tell PA that the O's are not making the playoffs this year. I AM VENTING LOUD AND CLEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Machado Trade Expectations

    Is Chris Davis turning in the worst season in MLB history?

    I think the contract should be based solely on incentives. The fans deserve a competitive team not a player get rewarded and rich with no obligation.

    You hope he gets injured like Albert Belle and Peter Angelis can collect insurance on him? I know it is a cruel thing to say but the union forces the owner to honor the contract where CD is not obligated to do anything.

    I get nervous every time Brach has a save opportunity ever since last year. He has had debacles as a setup man.

    Showalter is an extra thorn to add to our wounds.

    No excuse for Britton to get hurt in the off season.

    Positive vibes only thread

    My positive is the improvement of Bundy and Gausman. Possible future of our pitching staff.

    Hard to get upset

    The fire sale needs to come now. That includes trading Manny, Schoop, Britton, Adam, and Brach. If. We wait until next year we have no, I mean no trade chips. Is there possibly hope this organization can be smart? The reason I am fed up is because no movement is being done. Some people praise PA because he spent money, but he spent money on the wrong players. The only player wasn't his fault was Cobb. I am pleading for the fans to make noise to the media and the front office to express our concerns for something to be done by owner and management. This is the worst Oriole team I ever saw since 1960. They are a bunch of lazy players. It is not really Buck's fault when players don't hit and pitch. I am disappointed and angry for this 2018 team. I waited all offseason excited to see a good O's team to be let down. I hope people can respond to me and feel my pain.

    Davis is good to B.S. PA to get the fat contract. I will never stop harping about the con job he did to get that contract.
