    There are those who point to those non-trades and say Angelos was right; the O's made the playoffs. A late deadline trade to Cleveland would have brought back Jeromy Burnitz from Cleveland. Burnitz was traded instead to the Brewers. Before signing an extension in March 2001, Burnitz posted an OPS of .875 with 131 HRs and 425 RBIs in his first 4 seasons in Milwaukee. Instead, along with alienating Pat Gillick, this is what Angelos got in return... The last two months of the season, Wells, in 13 GS, was 4-4, with an ERA of 5.87, worst of the starters, comparable to, and worse than, Rocky Coppinger, and a full run higher than Rick Krivda. In the ALDS, Wells had an ERA of 4.61 in his two starts. He won game 1, thanks, in part, to 9 runs of support. In game 4, he left the game with the O's trailing 3-2, with Armando picking up the win in the 12th. In the ALCS vs. NYY, Wells got the game 2 win, with the O's giving him 4 runs of support. Wells bolted for NYY after the season. Bonilla won a WS with the Marlins in '97. The '97 Orioles, sans Wells and Bonilla, went wire-to-wire in winning their first division title since 1983.

    It was mostly recycled info just to file an article. The gist of the article he repeated on MLB Network (he does this every time). Here's the only "name-dropping" he did. "D-Backs second baseman Brandon Drury is one of the Arizona players under discussion in a Machado trade, sources say."
  4. That was for everyone else. As for you, Ciao.

  6. Locking up Gausman: Worth the Risk?

    Remind me, and I may be wrong. Wasn't there a similar discussion here about Tillman a couple years ago? Gauz is one of my favorites so I'm not objective when I say lock him up. As the ManNY business has reminded us, root for the name on the front of the jersey not the back.

    3000 posts and Manny remains in black and orange. Pitchers and catchers report in 48 days. Manny joins them 5 days later? Happy 2018

  12. Simply Extension?

    Send him to his hometown Padres. Who am I kidding? He'll be back on an overpaid extension personally negotiated by Peter.

    If you're looking for any breaking developments in this thread any time soon, may I offer you this advise

    I was attempting to be sarcastic (Wayne's World was a clue). Give Britton $$ for starting pitching. Let's give an extreme best case scenario, Britton returns in June and is lights out, rebuilding his trade value. The Orioles have 2 options: 1)The Orioles trade him in July. After having the sunk cost of $8M in salary for 1.5 months of production, what exactly could the Orioles hope to get in return for 2+ months of Britton to come out ahead? 2) The Orioles keep Britton all season, and make a QO, which Boras will recommend that he decline to test the market. $12.2M for 3+ months in another non-playoff year. I don't see the benefits outweighing the drawbacks with either of those options. Tell me where I'm wrong.

    And do what exactly? Use it to spend on Cobb?
