  1. Just exchange the l in Angelos for br and you get Angebros.

    The Inevitable national outlet Chris Davis article.

    You both are right but it was Buck that played Davis. Next year Davis should get ST and 1-2 months to prove he can contribute. If more of the same he is the 25th man and only sees the field due to emergency. The message needs to be you perform, you play. If not you sit, no matter what you get paid. He would be keeping another 25th man off the roster, not generally a solid player. Mancini at DH, Trumbo at 1B when he recovers, Montcastle learns 1B this year in the minors. Basically we play with a 3 man bench in a year destined to be bad and hope new mgmt gets him off the roster somehow.

    TT: Silence of Ownership is Deafening

    Agree with this. I believe the Bros Angelos will operate just like PA and meddle behind the scenes. Brady has the ear of one of them.

    I believe it is $110 M total (17*4) + (6*7)= 68+42= 110

    Gilmartin and Peterson

    True that but the Mesa line I thought was because he was hurt and LukeOH did a review of Mesa saying he was the one to keep. Before he crapped the bed of course.

    Dan pick versus Buck pick?????? I thought they both were hurt so pick the one with the highest upside.

    Why did we keep Araujo over Jose Mesa Jr.?

    Any idea why he was PA's friend?

    Top President / EVP Candidates?

    Yeah Max Blob used to run a bus out of South Baltimore back when he first started Blobs Park as a place for all the German ex-pats to congregate. Was a friend of my Dad's.

    Oh wow, memory lane. Hard by the tracks and yes they were huge. Tried to go back late 1990's but it was closed. Went to the German beer hall across the BW Parkway and has sausage and Dortmunder, good times.

    Orioles Reach Out to Me Regarding Plans

    Well someone decided to clean out everyone with a link to Dan so if Brady was a Dan guy you assume he would go as well. IMO, I think Brady has John's ear so he might stay.

    How else can you find the cockroaches that need squashing?

    My concern is that Dan talked about building the minors, player development, consistency across the minor levels, and International. Then he was allowed to sell off, acquire prospects, reduce payroll and acquire slot space. Gaussman aside, he got credit for a good job. Then the time came for the Cubans, Dan is released, a team of talent evaluators with no GM experience goes and returns empty handed. Did Dan do something, did John change his mind, are the Orioles still going to follow the plan Dan spoke about? That's what I want to hear now and what they owe the fans, commitment to a plan forward and general timeline for exec hires.

    See the last part of my post. No specifics just a plan. Get new people i place before Winter meetings, people that will focus on international market, consistency across the minors, people that value analytics. That the team will be spending more on building the minors and player development.

    Or perhaps whomever decided to "fire or release or not renew" Dan and Buck.
