    You kidding? Brooks forever!!!
  1. talked to Palmer today....

    You think he DOESNT understand our need for pitching? Are you trying to be funny?
  2. talked to Palmer today....

    He's already said it and maybe you folks posted it here...but worth repeating. Palmer says the birds should go after Moustakas..sign him for 5 years...put him at third and move Manny to SS for now...then if(when) we lose Manny you at least have a 3b with a reasonable contract (not 30m). He would move Beckham to an OF position(for now) or PH vs. LHP or dump Flaherty and use Beckham as a utility player.Flaherty isn't coming back anyway..so it makes sense. Then you have a very solid defensive infield with a ton of pop. Moose had 38 bombs last year and 85 RBI with a solid defensive year too... We could do worse. Agree?
  3. So What is the Plan for Starting Pitching?

    I don't trade Mancini for almost anyone..but thats me...Gonna be a star gang...
  4. Britton Out 6 months per Rosenthal

    I've been portrayed as a Debbie Downer...negative Nancy..whatever..I'm a self admitted whiner...but as bad as this is..and the Machado trade possibly, and as bad a team as we will likely have next year..I'll NEVER EVER give up my love for my Orioles. Its that simple. Im an Oriole for life...and no matter how hard life gets..it will stay that way...
  5. To watch other teams make their club better with moves and trades and exciting additions and to watch our team hampered by money issues and a lack of depth and imagination makes me depressed and angry. Yes, the Orioles probably HAD to move Manny and likely Britton...but we are looking at a cellar team now for perhaps years to come with few if any exciting players to watch. I'm so frustrated in watching the Yankees make great additions and re-signs, and having the money is the major difference..but its the same old story. Teams with more money and more desire to field exciting teams to make their teams competitive and compelling usually win and teams like ours have a small window before they go down again...and we are definitely going down again.And just watch the Yankees acquire Manny either THIS year or NEXT.
  6. C.C. Sabathia?

    When do WE start making moves? Or I guess maybe that rotation looks set...with 2 decent pitchers...
  7. Os requesting offers on Machado

    None of these players save Davis 3 years ago has any draw for the fans...even Adam. The Orioles are going to be a cellar dweller for years if they don't step up..Im not saying Manny or Britton shouldn't go, probably they should...but what will the Orioles do to keep the fans interested ?
  8. Os requesting offers on Machado

    Its been a few months since I posted but I want to say this. If the Orioles trade Manny, and or Britton, EVEN if its the right thing to do, they'd better make some commitments to the fan base. This is an entertainment business and the Yankees keep bringing compelling and exciting players into NY and the Orioles keep letting fan favorites walk.They could've signed Cruz with a little more effort and money, and its likely Manny will walk too..this is a VERY bad environment for any sports franchise. BASEBALL IS SHOW BUSINESS...IF YOU DONT HAVE EXCITING PLAYERS TO WATCH....PEOPLE WONT SHOW.
  9. If they traded Trey Mancini now it would be a big blow for me as an Oriole fan. This kid is going to be a star for many years IMO. I would only include Manny and Schoop as the players in this category that are hands off. Of course, Many will almost certainly be leaving the Orioles after next season, if not before.

    Auction is over. Thank you for your support. If you have a winning bid please contact me at addroy@aol.com or here on PM. This season OH auction supporters have helped raise more than $10,000 for some of the poorest and most disadvantaged kids in our community. Bless everyone for all of that.Go O's!!
  11. Hope we don't get swept..

    I love A.J. ...He's been one of the greatest and rightly one of the most popular Orioles ever...I just get impatient..when he is ..er..impatient...I wish he'd win a game for us one night...
  12. vs. YANKEES, 9/05

    You don't know me at all.You don't even know my sense of respect for ballplayers. I don't need you to lecture me on anything.
  13. vs. YANKEES, 9/05

    game over....good night all...pathetic performance..we are a very very mediocre team....
  14. vs. YANKEES, 9/05

    I respect all ball players and I also respect my right to comment on a game thread and say what I want....
  15. vs. YANKEES, 9/05

    What a pathetic display for a team that thinks it is in some sort of pennant race..what a joke...
