    Orioles in the Hall of Fame Vote

    I was in Vegas at the Caeser's sports book years ago watching Pete bet on anything that moved, horse races, dog races, etc. Just absolutely manic the entire time. Then when I got home the next week Nightline was on and here was Pete Rose telling Ted Koppel he couldn't remember the last time he made a wager.

    Orioles in the Hall of Fame Vote

    There are no fences to mend with Mike Mussina. Mike has zero ill will towards the Orioles. He was there when he was inducted to the Orioles Hall of Fame.

    Hyde: New O’s Manager

    Music is just personal taste. I should add that Kyle Cook their lead guitarist is a friend. A damn good guitar player. He actually played the National Anthem at Camden Yards.

    New manager

    My humble prediction is Mike Bell because of his development background.

    New manager

    Mike Bell is head of player development. That seems to be a good thing on your resume for the Orioles at this point.
  8. Maybe the greatest sitcom moments in television history!!!
  9. Ok, is there going to be two hires? Or just Elias as the GM?
  10. The Post has an article about a new hearing this week. To me the title is deceiving. What is the likely hood the Orioles don't appeal a negative decision? https://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/2018/11/13/nationals-orioles-masn-dispute-could-finally-end-this-week/?utm_term=.bb5585d6277e

    Top President / EVP Candidates?

    I think it is unrealistic to expect owner's of a multi-billion dollar asset to not have any input on certain financial decisions. To me the problem with the Orioles has been the lack of clear chain of command. Clearly Duquette's power to run things was completely subverted once he tried to leave for a better position with Toronto. Instead of either just letting him go he was punished by making him honor his contract. At the same time limiting his power to do his job. The owner listened more to his manager and Brady, people viewed as more loyal. Less to do with day to day interference but just an unworkable working environment.

    “A very good experience?!”

    I take that as people went to a ball game and thought the ballpark and atmosphere was a "very good experience." i went to a couple of games with some good friends I see once or twice a year and it was a very good experience. I went with my son who is now 31 and I don't see as much as I would like. That was a very good experience. That is regardless of how bad the team played. That is the context I would say that 5% responded.

    Top President / EVP Candidates?

    Maybe they have decided on the President but are waiting to announce them both at the same time.
