    Manny: “Thank God I wasn’t traded.”

    Of course they say the right things now. When it comes to free agency, though, they will be out for the most money. Thats the nature of today's game. Manny would love to play in baltimore in 2019, but only if they give him more money to do it than the yankees. Fat chance. Im not looking forward to the times in 2018 that manny comes up and pops out trying to hit a home run with a runner on 2nd and nobody out.

    Vidal Nuno vs Jayson Aquino

    I agree with Weams. Saw Aquino pitch several times last year. Reminds me of Arthur Rhodes. I believe he will be effective pitcher in major leagues in 2017 or 2018.

    Hardy Already Dealing With Sore Back

    I keep thinking that Chris Davis could slide over to 3rd, opening 1st for Trumbo or Mancini.

    Update: O's sign Trumbo to 3yr/$37 mil deal

    Personal opinion ... O's and Trumbo have the framework for a deal set up. Trumbo's agent wants to take it to other clubs to beat, so the O's release through Roch 'our offer is off the table' so that it cant be used by the agent for leverage. Just part of the dance ...

    Pitching coach candidates

    Id like to see Scotty in the role, but i dont think he really wants it. I had a chance to speak with him a couple of weeks ago and it sounded like it was more than he wanted to take on. Personally, i think he'd be fabulous. I like griffin and mills, too, and Ross Grimsley is a former pitching coach ... lots of talent around the organization. Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk
  10. Just need to add my 2 cents. I have always respected Adam, and this story only increases that respect. The 8% number surprised me, but then again race is not a factor for me in watching the orioles. For a while i volunteered in an organization that brings baseball to the inner city, and i saw a bunch of kids that really wanted to play ball but didnt have enough equipment, fields, or coaching to make it stick.

    What happened to Chris Lee?

    No obvious sign of injury ... top step of the dugout most of the time watching the games. Signed baseballs with left hand, no restricted movement of arm, elbow, etc ... Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  15. Did not look good last night. Many of the outs were rockets to the outfield. Fastball sat at 89-90, once hit 92. Slow curve got some ugly swings and misses. Got to adjust to this level. The way the fastballs were being hit I'd guess they didn't have much movement. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
