  1. 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?
  2. .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.
  3. .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?
  4. Time for Buck nd Dan to go

    Would you rather a manager that can win in October, but sucks Apr-Sept?
  5. Time for Buck nd Dan to go

    We disagree on what makes a mess. a .500 team that played meaning ball in September is not a mess in my book. Disappointing, yes...but not a mess. This team has an offence that can win a world series....an decent bullpen....but awful starting pitching. acquiring 3 above average starters would make this team a WS contender. Being 3 players away is not a mess.
  6. Time for Buck nd Dan to go

    We should be like the Cleveland Browns....keep changing management and personnel until we find one that can win! It's worked for the Browns so far.
  7. How would you rather spend $300 mm?

    How painful would it be to see Manny go into the hall wearing a Yankees hat?
  8. Name this season

    Staying Alive...Staying Alive
  9. So help me understand why it is ok to have a domestic draft, but not an international one. Would we be better off if there was not a domestic draft?
  10. Meaningful Games Past April

    7-3 keeps us right there....6-4 and we are still hanging around....5-5 and we probably lose some ground.
  11. I think DD and Buck will leave, and Rick Dempsey will fill both roles.
  12. Didn't say I'm betting on it, just said it's possible.
  13. The goal every year is to win the WS. The hardest part of baseball is getting in the post season. Any team can beat any team in a one game series, and even the Astro's can lose a 7 game series to a much lesser opponent. I believe to goal should always be to get into the post season. If you are well out of reach at the trade deadline, you move pieces to put your team in position to get back to the post season ASAP. If you play 4 months of baseball and find yourself within a game or two of a post season spot, I say you try and get in, without mortgaging the future if possible.
  14. Trade deadline is still a week away. Important series starts tonight. What do we do if we sweep TB and are 1 1/2 back of the second WC spot at the end of the week? I'm sure the core of this team does not want to quit. What message do you send Mancini, Schoop, Bundy and others you want to build around if you throw in the towel within 2 games of a playoff spot? Let's see where we sit on Sunday.
