  1. I don’t disagree that his numbers have been pretty atrocious but on a rebuilding team does it really hurt to give him another shot?
  2. I’d like to see the O’s take a chance on him. Highly touted prospect just a few years ago and still young. Why not right? Anyone else agree?
  3. Here’s something I don’t understand...it was reported that we had many teams, making very good offers for Manny, and also reported that some of those teams “sweetened” their offers. If this is indeed the case, I’d have to imagine that the other teams offers were better than a prospect like Diaz and a bunch of “throw ins”. Sure Diaz is a nice, intriguing prospect and I’m certainly not guilable enough to believe the Dodgers (or any team for that matter) are going to give us their best 3 prospects but I guess I’m just confused if other teams sweetened their offers yet we’re going to accept the Dodgers offer of Diaz plus a few “throw ins”. Am I making any sense or just rambling here? Lol.
  4. Sorry...I said “hypothetically”. My point was even if it’s not pitching prospects (which is what we’d prefer), if another team offers 2 really good hitting prospects, we shouldn’t turn it down simply because it’s not pitching.
  5. I know I’ll be in the minority here because I do agree that we should be targeting pitchers but if (hypothetically) the Yanks offered Frazier and Andujar, I jump all over that. Our farm system hasn’t exactly produced too many star-potential offensive prospects lately. I’d love a quality pitching prospect but if no one is offering them, take the next best thing.
  6. Couldn’t have said it better myself. This just proves that the FO has absoluteky no intention of competing this year. I’ve said for weeks now, they’ve made it a point to not give anyone (pitcher or not) more than a 2 year deal so why not offer Lynn or Cobb a 1/$20 million deal so they won’t be tied to any other long contracts (while showing fans they’re at least trying to compete THIS year). It is clear they don’t plan on being competitive and that should frustrate ANY O’s fan.
  7. Oh...I know they won’t. Lol. Just wishful thinking I suppose.
  8. I mean, I don’t know exactly what the Rockies would be looking for in return but me personally, I’d be fine with offering them Brach or Givens and a mid-level prospect for Dahl. Not sure if that would be enough but again, at least gauge interest ya know?
  9. I can see why you would suggest this but no, not really. I’d venture to say Cargo is considerably better than Rasmus and while they only signed him to a 1 year deal, if they can upgrade their team by trading Dahl, I’d absolutely consider it. I love Hayes personally but does that mean we don’t at least entertain offers for him and potentially trade him if we get offered the right package?
  10. Now that it appears the Rockies are being Cargo back, I’d love to see the O’s reach out to them to see if they’d be willing to trade David Dahl and what they’d be looking for in return.
  11. I’m no scout but I just don’t see (and have never seen) why the O’s are so enamored with Wright. I could understand if he had a few appearances where he showed flashes of being a good MLB starter but he just hasn’t. If they’re trotting him out there “hoping” he has a few nice starts in order to try and trade him, fine but I honestly don’t think that’s the case.
  12. I don’t know if Lynn or Cobb would go for it or not but at this point, given the fact that so many O’s are in the final year of their contracts and for some odd reason it’s seems like the FO is trying to be competitive THIS year, offer one of them a 1 year/$25 million and see if they bite. Yes...that’s a big overpay but it’s only a 1 year commitment and at the very least, our rotation would be vastly improved.
  13. Exactly how I feel. I was a huge Mussina fan and held ZERO grudge against him for leaving. I also don’t hold a grudge because he chose the Yankees...they had the ability to offer him the most money and best opportunity to win. For all the talk about how many people dislike Angelos for the way he runs this organization, Mussina should’ve been applauded for basically telling him to pound sand. And take this for what you will but years ago, I ran into Mussina’s brother in a bar, noticed him right away and decided to go over and strike up a conversation with him. Super nice guy. He talked to me for at least 30 minutes and he explained that Mike was furious about how Angelos reneged on his promise but that he also felt terrible for the fans. Unless his brother is a liar, he did the same thing any normal person, working in a normal business would do if their boss pulled the BS Angelos pulled on him. Mussina will always be one of my top 5 favorite Orioles. Isn’t it “slightly” ironic that we haven’t had a TRUE Ace since he left?
  14. I really wish you would read my posts more carefully. I said in my earlier post I’m not gullible enough to believe that Frazier will actually be as good as Trout but there have been multiple scouting reports where he has been compared to him. What I DID say is that I personally believe he will be a star (that doesn’t mean Trout level star) but a star nontheless. You then stated you believed it would take one of Gausman/Harvey and then 2 out of 3 of Mullins, Hays, Stewart to which I replied that personally, given Harveys injury history and the fact that I simply believe Frazier is far better than Mullins and Stewart that I would trade Harvey, Mullins and Stewart for Frazier in a heartbeat. Then you come back and say it would take much more. It’s fine man...I get it loud and clear that you disagree with my opinion (as usual) but that doesn’t mean that my opinion is any more or less valid than yours.
  15. My point is why not, at the very least, try and get a feel for what it would take? If it’s too much then we don’t do it. If it’s reasonable then it should be considered. Personally I’d trade Harvey and Mullins or Stewart for him. Harvey has already proven to be injury prone and there’s zero guarantee he lives up to his potential. One more time...I’m not saying you have to agree with my opinion...that’s why it’s called my opinion.
