  1. After seeing Beckham miss two more bad plays already in this game, and it's only the 2nd inning, I think it's clear this experiment needs to stop. I don't really care about what Manny wants, we need to do what's best for the team. And that's having Manny at 3rd and Beckham at Shortstop. While we certainly have other issues on the team, this is a glaring issue and needs resolved.
  2. Anyone ever used the broker app Robinhood?

    Just an update and a response to a few things. 1) Still using it. Have gotten 5 free stocks so far, 1 for signing myself up and 4 for others I referred. Free stocks, why not? 2) Why am I using it instead of Scottrade or TD Ameritrade? Simple costs. I have 2 IRAs with Scottrade (soon to be TD Ameritrade) but they charge every time I buy or sell a stock. With Robinhood I'm taking $50 a paycheck and am able to put all of that into buying a stock. I'm not day trading or anything like that, but I like the fact that I'm able to invest in the market without any expenses. Still going to use my IRAs of course, but here I can do some little things without taking a cost. 3) And some a right, there is very little research features. I've been using my Scottrade account to research, then buy on Robinhood. :-) Anyway, if anyone else has any comments or questions, ask away. Again, I'd highly recommend it.
  3. I hope it's ok to post this, but a resolution I made for 2018 was to be more serious about my retirement and investing. I did a bit of research and came across an interesting stock broker company called Robinhood that is currently giving away a free stock to anyone who tries them out. Plus all trades are free. Has anyone tried them out before? Any thoughts on them? They are similar to E-trade or Scottrade, but with no fees for buying/trading/selling stock. Also the page that asks for bank information, if you don't want to put that information in you can skip that step and still get the free stock. Full disclosure, if you sign up with the below link, we both then get a free stock. I got a free Chesapeake Energy stock when I signed up. Check it out, and feel free to ask me any questions, though I'm certainly not an expert either at the app or in the stock market. :-) Hope this helps some fellow Orioles fans! https://referral.robinhood.com/willias2408/
  4. This 'new' site isn't as mobile friendly as Tapatalk. I don't know why, but when I'm on my Samsung S7 using Chrome, about a 1/3rd of the time the site simply locks up when I try to go from one page of a thread to another, and can take as long as 2-3 minutes to 'unlock'. Every other mobile site I go to works fine, and no other issues on with the phone. Only on Orioles Hangout. I know you had to make this change for revenue, but I miss Tapatalk and my viewership of Orioles Hangout is basically down to when I am at the PC.
  5. Tapatalk is not working.

    I'm not very happy that it's gone. I use Tapatalk for 95% of the message boards I read regularly. While I rarely, if ever, post, I check the boards 4-5 times a day or more to get my Orioles fix. Not sure I like this change, and not sure if it'll change my view habits. *shrug*
  6. vs. PADRES, 6/21

    Davis has looked completely lost tonight....huge hole in the lineup when he isn't seeing the ball well.
  7. I'd be game for a league too. Have done one in years, but want to get back into it. Thanks.
