    Per Nightingale: Dan Stays, Buck Goes.

    He'd be a fool to turn down #1 money.

    I think we have to keep Duquette due to no one else wanting this job.

    How do we say goodbye to Buck and Adam?

    These two guys played pivotal roles in the mini-turnaround of this franchise. I will definitely miss both of these guys, but I think it's time to move on from them. That being said, if Jones and/or Buck aren't extended by the last game, there's no guarantee one way or the other of their returns. So, I guess there's really no way of giving them a proper send off. I would imagine that Buck will pull Jones during the game and let him go off the field with the 5,000 fans in attendance giving him a nice round of applause. Shame it couldn't have happened after a World Series game 7 this season for Adam. He's been a great member of the team and the community. As for Buck, I hope we hear of his fate before the last home game, so at least that way he'll be able to receive some nice accolades from the crowd. Hopefully, they would do a nice video tribute to him, as he so richly deserves. He played a big part in bringing winning baseball back to Baltimore. For that, I will be grateful. Thanks to both of these fine men.
  4. Agree with you here. I think he's a better fit in LF, but I'm willing to give him the CF job next year and see if he improves.
  5. What GM would want to work in an organization where he'd have his decisions scrutinized by Brady Anderson? I realize that there are only 32 of these jobs, but one would just have to take a look at the history of this club to figure out they are walking into a bad place to work.
  6. While I agree that Mullins has been a nice addition and appeared to be ready to step in, he's not the type of guy that's going to help turn your franchise around. We need one or two superstars coming out of the next couple of drafts. We also need to develop the talent we draft over the next couple of seasons. We will have high picks and really need to nail these.
  7. If Anderson is still around, I think I may just wait until spring training to follow anything this team is doing. I'm probably lying, but I feel that way right now.

    BR: O's farm system 18th; list of 10 prospects

    Except for Gausman, they waited entirely too long to trade these guys.

    Jim Callis sums up the O's really well

    I'm kind of interested in that OSU catcher as well. Having a great catcher could be a great building block. Of course, having a great shortstop wouldn't be bad, either.

    Mesa Brothers Declared Free Agents By MLB

    The boldface is the most important thing you say here. Unfortunately, this club will be bad until they figure out how to fix this problem.

    How Long is the Road to Contention?

    They are going to have to do a tremendous job of drafting and developing over the next few years to have a winning team by 2022. I'm not sure this team is capable of that...especially the "developing" part.
  12. The first order of business HAS to be determining what to do with DD and Buck.

    Trey Mancini is going to trend up

    OK...I thought the slump coincided with his injury. Nice to see that he's "recovered".

    Trey Mancini is going to trend up

    I thought I remembered him having some sort of injury. I'm wondering if it was a nagging thing that he's finally over?

    Jonathan Villar- Our new 2B?

    I could see this as well. It would be nice to have a sure-handed shortstop to help the pitching and anchor the infield D.
