  1. TT: Could the Orioles be Prepping to be Sold?

    Peter's 88 years old; the health rumor's not exactly going out on a limb.
  2. Boras Speak

    Funny coming from an agent that prepares binders full of analytics on his clients. Once again, Jon Heyman is doing Boras' PR work.
  3. Life

    Do you know who the father is? Congrats.

  5. Cashner, Presley, Tillman - are the O's done now?

    The last time I checked, the Baltimore Sun isn't on the MASN payroll, and there's no pushback from them either on the roster moves. http://www.baltimoresun.com/topic/sports/baseball/dan-duquette-PEBSL001319-topic.html

  7. Tillman back. Are we happy?

    Whether if it was December or February, pick your year, Peter Angelos is not going to pay top dollar for pitching, never has, never will. Flanagan, Sweater Vest, Showalter all have promoted the party line, "grow the arms." To expect anything else after all these years is akin to Charlie Brown still believing Lucy won't pull the football. This quote is from 2006, but he hasn't changed his spots since. https://www.pressboxonline.com/story/738/the-last-laugh-q-a-with-peter-angelos

    So predictable.
  9. Does Adam Jones Want to Stay Here Past 2018?

  10. Life

    Good luck, Hank BTW, "Little Steven" never made it as a rock star on his own. He had to glom onto bigger talent. Case in point.
  11. Does Adam Jones Want to Stay Here Past 2018?

    And this year will be Adam's 11th in Baltimore. How did that work out?
  12. Manny: “Thank God I wasn’t traded.”

    Alright, in fairness to Frobby, I'm researching Heyman's claim that were $8-9M apart only a couple years ago, which would be 2015. This is what I've found, and it's very frustrating. IF it hasn't been since 2013, then medicals could be one of the contributing factors, and that concern should've been dismissed long ago. - Roch, Oct 2015 - http://www.masnsports.com/school-of-roch/2015/10/manny-machado-this-is-the-organization-i-want-to-be-with.html - Baltimore Sun, Jan 2016 http://www.baltimoresun.com/sports/bal-orioles-agree-to-big-raise-for-manny-machado-avoid-arbitration-with-chris-tillman-ryan-flaherty-20160115-story.html Now it is possible they did talk in early 2016, and haven't since Pressbox - https://www.pressboxonline.com/2016/10/17/orioles-need-to-make-a-decision-on-manny-machados-future-in-baltimore
  13. Manny: “Thank God I wasn’t traded.”

    I agree no excuse not to throw an offer out there now, but define "several years." This is Mussina redux. https://www.fanragsports.com/orioles/heyman-orioles-have-no-intention-of-shopping-manny-machado/
  14. Manny: “Thank God I wasn’t traded.”

    I hate when players say “there are some things that are out of my jurisdiction, out of my hands. “ B.S. Manny, you could get big bucks, but not top dollar, to stay in Baltimore. Everyone knows the economics in Baltimore, big Pete can't and won't outbid NYY. Manny, if you choose to sell to the top bidder than it’s all on you pal, your decision. That's your right, Manny, and if it's NYY, little Kenny Rosenthal, Boras' PR man -Heyman, and all rest of the media will love you for it. Do me a favor; don't tell me you have no control over the situation.
  15. Cashner signing

    According to Roch, the base salary for Cashner in 2018 is $5M.
