  1. Not sure we're going to be able to (or should) keep Martin on the roster all year. The guy is an O-fer at the plate... Not sure why Mullins hit ok last year and can't this year... League may have caught up to him?
  2. Who would get your vote? 1. Adley Rutschman 2. Bobby Witt Jr. 3. Hunter Bishop 4. Andrew Vaughn 5. other?? And while I'm at it, With the 1st overall pick in the 2020 draft the Orioles select.....? With the 1st overall pick in the 2021 draft the Orioles select....?
  3. I know it will mean flushing $100 million dollars down a toilet, but can we release Davis and Wright once and for all? I'm sure they are perfectly nice people and I don't wish them any ill will.... I just never, ever, want to see them play baseball in an Oriole uniform ever again. Ever....
  4. I'll go with an even 5. Let's assume we can assemble a good outfield with Yusniel Diaz, Austin Hays, Cedric Mullins. Then we can bolster the lineup with Mountcastle. We'll need to supplement with the top draft picks we'll get for sucking so much, and hopefully we can sign Victor Victor Mesa or other international free agents. We can build a staff out of Ortiz, Tate, Kremer, DL Hall, Greyson Rodriguez, Keegan Akin, Hannifee, Knight and a free agent or two. As an aside, our catching situation looks terrible- Sisco didn't hit at all. He's young and hopefully improves, but we may need to address that. I'm going with an even 5 years...
  5. Ignorant post. I presented a ton of evidence that Duquette's deals have hurt the club. I could argue people are choosing to ignore said evidence and scapegoat the owner.
  6. True. I suppose Angelos could be "Baseball stupid" but not stupid in general...
  7. I have heard that 89 yr old Peter isn't really involved in all the decisions any more. Now, his sons may be as meddlesome know-it-alls as he was, but has Peter really been calling all the shots all these years? And is he still? It would surprise me...
  8. Why put him in against a Lefty? That just doesn't make any sense. Why not re-introduce him against a righty at least?
  9. Fair. There's no way to know for sure. Maybe DD did go to Peter and talk about trading Manny and was shot down... Peter certainly has vetoed potential trades before... It's interesting. The people who frequent this forum tend to blame everything on the owner, and the people on the other forum I visit blame everything on the GM. I guess you need to know your audience before posting....
  10. Not at all. There are certainly times when you should deal young prospects for a player to help you get over the top. The problem is that that's all DD has been doing the past few years and look at where it got us. That's the point. The proof is in the 2018 season.
  11. Angelos is a lot of things, but stupid isn't one of them. If Dan had met with him and said, "look, Manny is gone in 2 years. We have to make a full tilt attempt to sign him to an extension, if we can't, we'd better trade him now while we can get maximal return" I think Peter might have listened...
  12. I'm not arguing that Angelos isn't the worst owner ever (he is), nor am I arguing that he didn't play a role in the trash dumpster that is the 2018 team (he did). Maybe DD is just playing the cards he's dealt, or more likely it's a combination of all of the above. BTW..we didn't sign Travis Snider, we traded a talented young pitcher for him who is currently 5-1 this year. Just sayin'...
  13. Sounds like clickbait to me. If there are 2-3 playoff contenders at the deadline who could obtain Machado to put them over the top and they are vying for his services, it seems to me he'd have more value around the trade deadline than now. Not sure I agree with the "hemorrhaging value" baloney... Maybe Ravich was hired by a potential trade partner to say that to lower the price...
