  1. Here's a take from a scout of another organization. Some positive, some negative.
  2. Yeah, once again, another blown prediction on my part as well. In fairness, even if I had stuck with my analysis, instead of tossing it aside, I would've gone with today or Saturday not yesterday.
  3. Yeah, it was posted before. The lesson is when you have these merge-all threads, things like this can get lost.
  4. That's not an additional $296.8M That leaves $99.3M still to be paid for 2012-16. One wonders how much was paid out in legal fees on each side to get to this point. What is not known is how much has been paid and will be owed for 2017-21. 2021. hmmm that's also the year the OPACY lease expires.
  5. 8/22 - 8,153 Attendance 5th lowest gate of season, 10th game under 10,000
  6. Despite all this talk about Nashville, the club was never in danger of being moved when Angelos bought the team in 93. The Orioles were going to be owned by Angelos or Loria. With those choices, the Orioles got the lesser of two evils.
  7. DeWitt was part of the Angelos group that outbid Jeffrey Loria https://www.baltimoresun.com/news/bs-xpm-1993-08-03-1993215088-story.html Baltimore Sun, August 3, 1993
  8. 0.5 GB Detroit for 1-1. 12-12 July is the outlier of the season to date. 2019 is two games ahead of 2018. However, it would take a 1-9 finish this month to tie the 2018 team through the end of August. September has a 13 game stretch vs DET, TOR, and SEA vs the NYY-BOS-HOU smackdown that ended last season. Despite how this month has gone, chances are good that the final 2019 record will be improved.
  9. Nats are a distant second because I was originally a Senators fan, long, long ago. I don't follow their day-to-day, let alone watch the games.
  10. For context this is what Gossage said Billy Beane's "Moneyball" was published in 2003. That was when the "spreadsheet guys" vs. the "experience guys" came into focus...16 years ago. As to the "strategy" of the game, there seems to be a lot more of it, one example being all the shifts Piniella is angry about. Then there's Pete Rose I didn't go to Harvard either, proud Terp instead. That being said, if i were to list reasons why attendance is up, more HRs and Ks would be closer to the bottom than the top. People seemed to enjoy the HR chase in 1998. They do add a lot more statistics to the telecasts than before, such as launch angle. Sitting in the ballpark, they post the speed gun for each pitch. To me, it doesn't make the games unwatchable, but I wouldn't miss that if they were gone either.
  11. We have a starting point 9/28/06-8/14/07 Going from 6'6" at 17 to 6'7" is not at all unusual. Growing 2" at age 25 would be. However, Baseball reference has him listed as 6'7", 225 lb, so the referenced article is in dispute.
