  1. Yep, and then the next 14 years they shied away from big talent and signed the Jay Payton's of the world instead.
  2. During the dark days the O's were famous for spending on players that did not make a difference. I would rather spend on one that can make a difference like Manny. The question is, do you want 10 years of a hall of fame career on your team or not. Stop spending moderate money on the Trumbo's, and instead spend big on hall of fame talent that still has a majority of their career ahead of them.
  3. Orioles extend offers to bring back coaching staff

    Being a Cleveland Browns fan, I see the value in bringing in a new coaching staff every year until you get desired results. It was worked for the Browns...the dumb Steelers hold on to coaches forever, and look how poorly they have performed over the past couple of decades.
  4. Should Dan and Buck Continue on a One Year Contract?

    Bring back Jim Duquette

    I hope so
  6. Right Now, I Hate Baseball.

    Judge is going to have some 100 HR seasons, and hit over 1,000 in his career.
  7. Miley and Ubaldo might have just cost themselves a major league job in 2018. Hard to see a team signing either and putting them into their rotation.
  8. I like Brady, but I have no reason to believe he would be any better than Mike Flanagan was in that role. If DD departs, give me someone who has done the job before, or was at least a strong assistant GM on a team with a good track record.
  9. Can't wait for Brady or Dempsey to take over as GM....people we will begging for DD to return.
  10. Buck: Chris will be a good pitcher next year

    This board loves to buy high and sell low. Tillman is the perfect guy to sign to a very low risk deal. He's not an unknown, He has proven he can pitch at the Yard with success, he is just turning 30 (not that old yet). He wants to stay here. I say pitch him the first 6 weeks of 2018.....if it's obvious he is done, then waive him.
  11. Orioles Have No Plans of Shopping Machado

    .333 hitters don't go 1 for 3 every night, and 40 HR guys don't 1 HR every 4 games.
  12. Orioles Have No Plans of Shopping Machado

    So a bad year for Manny is likely Gold Glove, .270 38 HR and 100+ RBI. I'll take that in a down year.......The only question to be answered is, what hat will Manny be wearing when he is inducted?
  13. .500+ record, or no. 13 overall draft pick?

    I disagree....to me a fluke would be if that 2012 team won 93 game, then followed it up with a couple of sub .500 seasons. This team has been a wild card caliber team or better for the past 5 years. Yes, even the 2017 team could have made the WC. And we have the core in place for at least a WC caliber team in 2018. If the 2007 team won 93 games, that would have been a fluke.
  14. .500+ record, or no. 13 overall draft pick?

    How many consecutive years of playoff baseball will it take for the Astros to recoup the lost revenue dollars from the 100 loss seasons?
  15. Time for Buck nd Dan to go

    Would you rather a manager that can win in October, but sucks Apr-Sept?
