  1. I agree. I think team success flows like the tides: a period of success, falloff, rebuild, success again.
  2. Read the article, nothing suggests that Buck isn't in for a rebuild. The thread title is misleading.

    We have the Trifecta.

    They're totally going to have a hot September.

    And Manny will wear #8... the pain is REAL!

    Just don't dress up like Santa and you'll be fine.

    Yeah, I don't know why people are so concerned about Camden Yards when people like get stabbed and die outside games in SF and LA.

    Dan Duquette -- any chance he stays?

    I've gotten the impression they get along. And I think Brady could serve well as a compliment to Duquette. Brady is really personable, great with establishing relationships - which is something that Duquette is maybe a bit weak at. Buck and Duquette have butted heads, it seems, but they've made it work. The main issue has always been Peter Angelos.

    Renato Nunez the likely Machado replacement

    Exactly, I'd take the paycheck. If the literal worst team in baseball won't call you up for a start, why would any other team?
  8. I've always resisted the notion any national writers have a grudge against the Orioles - but I feel like Keith Law legitimately does.
  9. It'd be really informative and helpful if anyone has insight into how the scouting side of baseball works for most organizations. I know nothing about it and I'm very interested.
  10. MLB has pretty good parity for the most part. The O's issues over the last twenty years have been related more to poor management than anything. MLB isn't like the Premier League of English Football or something where only the top teams have a shot and something like Leicester City's win is incredibly rare.

    What will we watch for the rest of this season?

    I agree, I'll be checking out the new players when they come up. And the playoff race is starting to really heat up, I'll probably be checking in on some good matchups of other teams.

    Machado to the Dodgers, 5-1 deal

    Yeah, cause they're World Series contenders, still have a better farm system than the O's, just got LeBron, and live in California. I'd be thrilled too.

    Hays/Mullins/Diaz could be a legit exciting outfield.

    Jeff Zrebeic & Dan Connolly join, "The Athletic"

    It is silly to print thousands of copies of something and deliver them all over town every single day when the majority of people have a device in their pocket that allows them to access every single public document ever written in seconds.
