  1. No, not at all. I'd be shocked if they did - even they're not foolish enough to do it. It only came up because someone earlier in the thread asked.
  2. Somehow #3 got cut off. 'But by all means, let's offer him the QO and throw away millions that can be better spent on scouting, development, or just paying down sunk costs like Davis' contract.'
  3. Because offering him the QO would be colossally stupid, even dumber than when they offered it to Weiters. 1. He'll be lucky to get $6-$8M AAV as a FA, and he'll probably only get a 1 or 2 year deal. 2. They're rebuilding and it's lunacy to have a declining veteran on a $17M QO, especially when they're stuck with Davis @ $23M 3. They've already said they're cutting payroll dramatically, and their have been rumblings of financial trouble, but by all means Obviously my post did have some hyperbole. Kinda comes with the territory with message boards/fan forums. But seriously, offering him the QO would be idiotic, and if they did, I'd have to at the very least seriously question the fitness of the person to run the team that made to the decision to do so.
  4. If they offer him a QO the entire ownership, FO, and anyone else on the management team who had a part in that decision should be banned from baseball for life.
  5. That makes more sense, much more than the 'I need to run my charity' explanation he put out there in July. I happen to disagree with him, and I think his value this winter is going to be what it was going to be, and 2-3 months in a platoon in Philly wasn't going to change it much, one way or the other. But that's fine, he has every right to try and maximize his FA value. I hope he lands a decent deal for next year and maybe beyond, in a good situation on a winning team.

    Bundy got himself a new change up

    Until he stops giving up 6+ runs once in every 2-3 starts, I remain unconvinced.
  8. ?? And that has what to do with the topic, or my post, exactly?
  9. Argh! I dunno why it wouldn't embed. This one might work.

  11. I dunno if I buy 4th best team in baseball, but Tampa has put together a pretty nice season, especially considering they play NYY and Boston 38 times. Oakland is also under the radar, putting up a very nice season in the West and pushing Houston. The AL playoffs are loaded.

    Do the O's even name a MVO this year?

    I'm not disputing anything you say, but if not him, who? It shouldn't be someone no longer on the team, IMO, so that would mean no Manny.
