    Big time talk from Dan

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but even from 1988-2011 I never heard the word "rebuild." If done right, this could be the start of a savvy, well planned organizational model that hearkens to the Paul Richards teams of the early 60s.
  2. He is referencing an Angelos quote from either the late-90s or early-2000s.
  3. Isn't the Trumbo contract going to be up next year? Not like we're going to be competitive anyway.

    Machado Trade Expectations

    Not overwhelmed. Not underwhelmed. Just whelmed. I already miss Machado. He handled this as well as could be expected and gets major points.

    Machado Trade Expectations

    Roberto Clemente was a Rule 5 guy. Seriously, this thread has become weird, personal and somewhat creepy. I'll bow out, wait for an official announcement and leave the histrionics to others.
  7. I do think the Orioles timed out the Machado trade to upstage the Nationals at an All-Star game they should have been hosting.

    Machado Trade Expectations

    First thing I do every morning is check my phone to see if a trade happened overnight.

    A Message From Brooks

    For the next few years it seems all the Orioles will have is1960-1985. I've never seen a franchise market their star players more poorly and its about time.

  11. If you think being an Orioles fan is a gut punch....try being an Orioles AND Razorbacks fan! I think I'm going to throw up.

    Nightingale: Dodgers in lead for Manny

    Only if we can get uber-prospect Juan Bell, the mustachioed Brian Holton or Ken Howell (who according to his Wiki page still hasn't announced his retirement) in return.

    Machado booed at home

    Seattle radio called Machado out...Jim Hunter did not.
  14. I would say over half of my friends have cut the cord. Saves hundreds of dollars, not worry about contracts, keep their sanity from not having to navigate 250+ worthless channels. When the economy tanks the decline will be even more pronounced. Orioles need to be A LOT more forward thinking. However, progress and the O's don't really go hand in hand.

    An Alternate Watching Idea: College World Series

    On a personal note: WOOOO PIG SOOOIEEEE!!!!! Several years ago I met Brooks Robinson at a personal appearance in Ellicott City. He noticed me wearing an "Arkansas Football" t-shirt. What followed was a 20 minute conversation about our mutual love of the Razorbacks, how he turned down a baseball/basketball scholarship from Arkansas to sign with the Orioles and how his brother played on the 1964 National Championship football team (with Jerry Jones, Jimmy Johnson and Barry Switzer). Really looking forward to seeing how Knight performs on this national stage. Has pinpoint accuracy but relies a lot on his defense and secondary pitches to get outs.
