    Ex-Orioles in the postseason

    Manny as the villain is ESPN's latest storyline that they keep repeating. http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/25027718/mlb-how-milwaukee-brewers-thundered-back-save-their-season-game-6 http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/25016918/mlb-los-angeles-dodgers-manny-machado-october-newest-villain

    Top Manager Candidates

    The Reds would be at least the third club that he decided not to manage. Girardi turned down the Nats in October 2006, after the Cubs decided to hire Lou Piniella instead. Sweater Vest Andy tried to wine and dine him in June 2007. Girardi turned down the job stating, "There was interest on both sides. I felt at this time it wasn't the right time for my family and I. I was flattered that the Orioles showed interest. The baseball history is wonderful. It's a wonderful sports city." Four months later, suddenly the timing was right for his family as he was hired by the Yankees. As a footnote to the story, Andy also considered Dusty Baker, who said it was " probably not the right fit right now." Baker managed the Cubs when Andy was there and figured he didn't need to interview again, Andy already knew what he could do.

    This doesn't look good for him either. SMH

    Marlins Add Even More Mesa $

    It has been reported that the Marlins were close to the Orioles in money, and perhaps this latest deal puts them ahead. Why give the Marlins the opportunity to raise more money instead of taking what the Orioles already had?

    Marlins Add Even More Mesa $

    That also tells me that even with the Orioles having more money, they'd rather not play here. Therefore, getting more money, or having the Zoellner money back, wouldn't help.

    A Few Questions About Some Former Orioles

    There are 5 other managerial openings: Angels, Blue Jays, Twins, Rangers, and Reds. Of those, a team like the Angels, which left a veteran manager in place for 19 seasons, may be the only one that Buck would get hired to manage, but I think that's very unlikely. Buck either gets a Special Assistant role in the front office with the Rangers or he goes back to TV. I have real doubts he'll be in a dugout in 2019. Jones gets 2 years with an option, maybe with his hometown Padres. Flash Flaherty gets a minor league deal.

    The Victor Victor Mesa/Sandy Gaston thread

    There's already been one thread locked that talked about Baltimore city. Some people want to go back for more?

    My takeaway is they have interviewed 12 for the job. https://www.mlb.com/reds/news/reds-interview-rocco-baldelli-for-manager/c-297813644

    Top President Candidates?

    Because we're not talking about Peter Angelos, but his two boys instead. It's long past time to turn the pages from the Peter Angelos bogeyman storyline. Common sense things, like bringing Brooks back into the fold, tell me they aren't total clones of their old man, and that gives me a little hope for the future. Let's see what they do.
