  1. Perfect time for Angelos to sell the team?

    Maybe not in 1993 but under EBW from 1979 to 1988 it was a constant drum beat. He repeatedly said they would stay in Baltimore if they were supported. Luccino (sp?) was looking for suitable land on I95 close to Washington DC. Then the next owner went bankrupt and PA bought them. OPACY did happen under his watch but... it' not so cut and dried.
  2. Castro convertible..its time

    Near the end of the season didn't Buck comment that some of the young pitchers wouldn't be successful in the ML with their TTTP, wasn't Ynoa in that group? If so, I guess Buck isn't a fan of his. I do agree that Ynoa has the best chance to succeed as a starter of that group.
  3. Castro convertible..its time

    Do we still control Ynoa or is he a FA?
  4. Carlos Gonzalez

    Trumbo and Wright for Zack Wheeler.
  5. Chris Tillman Needs To Get Right

    I'm OK with Chris coming back on a make-good contract with sufficient incentives but I want it done now not in February after he fails to get a guaranteed contract elsewhere. I would want a detailed medical and mechanical study done, a prescribed physical therapy plan created, and the full off season to get the corrections or adjustments made. If it doesn't work out we minimize the risk/loss but if it does work out we have an effective #3.
  6. Thank You, Mark Daniel Trumbo

    With that in mind, the Mets need a 1B and another bat having moved Duda and Bruce and with other player injuries. They will have their big 4 SP back next year and have other back end SP options. So Trumbo to NYM with someone like Wright (maybe some $$) for Zack Wheeler. Limited to 80+ innings this first year back from TJ and on the DL with arm strain. Prior to TJ had about 350 innings at mid-3 ERA. Would be 28 next year. Give him this year's Bundy treatment next year.
  7. I Cannot Believe The Way This Team Has Folded.

    Sorry, didn't see this before. No, I'm not saying they said to Hell with Buck. Buck comes in and changes the culture, they start winning (the most games in AL for 5 years) so they believe in the plan. This year, the team really has Buck's stamp on it and Buck's guys's didn't perform and the pitchers that were shipped out (I blame Buck) had some success, while those here (I blame DD) crapped the bed. I think psychologically, being behind regularly so regularly takes a toll and when we got to September Buck's will just wasn't enough to keep them grinding.
  8. I Cannot Believe The Way This Team Has Folded.

    Well there is Hellickson lol, but really I think they just quit and Buck has lost the ability to motivate them. this team has Buck's fingerprints on it and those players have largely not performed this year. You can blame DD for the pitching options but guys like Miranda and Bridwell are gone IMO because they didn't fit Buck's template.
  9. Well I was on that list (thank God) but it is no consolation to me. I agree with starting a thread with creative ways to move him elsewhere. Start with paying the deferred to get down to 5-$85 MM and take on a bad pitching contract. Who is out there that might rebound to be a better back end option than our current dregs?
  10. .500+ record, or no. 13 overall draft pick?

    Not to me. This season has been so frustrating that finishing at .500 would still leave a bad memory. I think it is more important to the future of the O's that Hays play every day, that Sisco and maybe Santander get ABs at DH at least, that we determine if Mancini can stick at LF. I believe we have drafted well the last few years so I'm willing to finish lower and trust that we will still find a good prospect.
  11. Going to Game Tomorrow Night - Have Question

    Wait a minute, I`m "Older Than OLD Fan" by 6 freaking years??? OK Weams you can "codger" me instead but it should be more a 60`s hipppie ponytail look hahaha. Do your thing, I'll keep it for 6 months at least. I promise ise
  12. Serious question: would hypnosis help Chris Davis?

    In my experience this is spot on. My daughter has ADD and we went thru Ritalin, Concerta, Adderrel, and some others I can't recall. Each med had a different effect on her. Davis looks like he just can't pull the trigger, IMO he isn't processing info fast enough in the split second he has to decide. He needs a different med.
  13. Chris Davis Has Cleared Revocable waivers

    OK, Davis (we pay deferred$) to Detroit for Verlander straight up. Do you do it?
  14. Mike Wright Preparing In Case Orioles Need Another Starter

    Any idea who is responsible for getting him to "tweak" and add a 2 seamer?
  15. After all the frustration of this season, if we make a run and get the 2nd berth and NY wins the division, how good would it feel to end BOS season in the play-in game? Remember the Mandino!
