    Dick Bleier, your new favorite reliever

    Dick Bleier, #1 in ESPN’s “Your New Favorite Reliever Power Rankings: Eight guys to love you've never heard of” Plus Josh Hader and our buddy Chaz Roe. http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/23095176/your-new-favorite-reliever-power-rankings-eight-guys-love-never-heard-of

    So What is the Plan for Starting Pitching?

    Crazy idea - If we’re not trading Manny because we think we can contend, why not go all in and see if we can get Arrieta and Darvish on 1 yr, $30M contacts or something and give it a whirl to see if that can take us to the promised land? Then start over next year.

    Exactly. I'd gladly chip in $5 or $10 here and there because I love checking in on the forums and everyone's opinions. But $25 for a plus membership is not of interest to me since I don't care about the features and therefore don't want to put out $25 for it.

    Have you considered a way to accept donations for the site? I frequently read and rarely post, and it'd be great to have a way to chip in without going the $25 Plus Member route. I've donated smaller amounts to other forums I frequent or have found useful.

    Orioles' Adam Jones berated by racist taunts at Fenway Park

    And I most definitely did not do that. I stated a few pages back that Adam has been one of my favorite players for years. He tells it like it is and speaks his mind, which is refreshing compared to the corporate line you get from so many. Glad he's our guy.

    Orioles' Adam Jones berated by racist taunts at Fenway Park

    Good stuff, Tony. That was the intent of me bringing up the demographics, but you said it all much more eloquently. When you look at the percentage of black players in the game, combined with the other socioeconomic factors you point out, it's not surprising the way it is and it also doesn't make it a white man's sport. I, too, disagreed when Adam said that last year.

    Orioles' Adam Jones berated by racist taunts at Fenway Park

    Just to be clear, Adam has been one of my favorite O's since he joined the team. Love his personality and effort, and he lays it all out on the field. He's the heart of the team and I love him. So, take my anecdote for what it's worth. It's interesting discussion.

    Ha, Clevenger. Not really going anywhere. It was an interesting read that relates to characterizing it as a white man's game. I should have known someone was going to jump on me for posting it...

    Orioles' Adam Jones berated by racist taunts at Fenway Park

    A couple of years ago I read an article with some charts that showed that MLB is actually the closest representation of US race demographics of all the major sports leagues. I can't find it now, so I just looked up that African Americans make up 12.2% of the US population. It's lower, but not too far off from 42 active out of 750. It's really not much more of a minority than the general population. Maybe NFL and NBA sitting in the backs of our minds skew our perspective on MLB's composition. I just found the whole thing to be interesting. Regardless, awful that that happened to Adam.

    Hoping we drill some guys in the letters

    New Spring Training Unis

    I burst out laughing. Well played. Such an excellent show.
  13. Any idea if this 7% attendance drop includes the three lost home games from the relocated weekend Rays series? If so, we're only looking at about a 3% drop.

    2015 Season Ticket Packets (13,29,81)

    In addition to the Sunday plan, they've had B, C, and D plans and each one has a different set of 13 tickets. All of those plans and the 29-game plan add up to 81 games total, so they can break out seats to be sold to partial plan holders for the whole schedule. Keep in mind that the O's are super flexible with trading in tickets and buying additional tickets at the season plan price for anywhere in the stadium. You could theoretically buy whichever 13-game plan and then trade them all in for 13 Sundays as long as you don't mind sitting in different seats each game.

    2015 Season Ticket Packets (13,29,81)

    My guess when they mentioned choosing your plan is that they mean which of the four 13-game plans from which you can choose.
