  1. Buck and Hardy deserve some credit

    History says not much of a chance.
  2. We are a 10th place team

    To say Tillman, Chen, Miquel Gonzalez, and Guasman are swings and misses just isn't true. Norris I will give you. Gausman's career isn't over yet but I will say the jury is still out on him.
  3. Duquette Future

    Some information I do have is that Duquette has sold his home in the area recently and has moved from what I am told out of the state.
  4. Why is Peter Angelos doing the things he’s doing?

    I assume his sons will also inherit his law practice which will provide a pretty good revenue stream to pay off any estate liabilities that arise. Peter Angelos is one of the very few law practices that has never taken a partner. If the Angelos family wants to continue to own the Orioles I suspect they will. What that may look like is anyone's guess at this point.
  5. Deadline Deal Orioles Mega-Thread

    If they can flip both Britton and Brach for 4 starting pitchers that are reasonably close to the major league (high A or above) it will be a good day.
  6. Deadline Deal Orioles Mega-Thread

    Why should Britton call Boras and tell him to settle for less? Would you take less to do your job? If I was a talented baseball player I would hire the best agent in the business. In the end it is up to the player to decide where he is going to play but I can't blame any of them for hiring the person to put them in the best contract situation they can get.
  7. Deadline Deal Orioles Mega-Thread

    http://www.masnsports.com/school-of-roch/2017/07/orioles-bring-back-gentry-plus-lineups.html I don't think Roch would throw this out just to stir the pot. Will Hellickson ever appear as an Oriole? Could he be packaged to a team like the Dodgers looking for a starter down the stretch along with a Brach or Britton? I guess we will know by 4:00 tomorrow.
  8. Deadline Deal Orioles Mega-Thread

    I agree but that is why I think it is tough to bury Duquette for expecting more from the team they broke camp with. All things being equal if Gausman and Tillman gave the team 5 more quality starts each, the position of this team at the end of July would be much different. I don't think that wasn't realistic thinking. Gausman is just better than he has pitched much of the season.
  9. Deadline Deal Orioles Mega-Thread

    Yes, I saw the same thing. Agree that is what his point was.
  10. Deadline Deal Orioles Mega-Thread

    For what? What has he written that is false? Him not being good enough for Bostonian's is a feather in his cap for me. I am glad he writes here in Baltimore.
  11. Deadline Deal Orioles Mega-Thread

    Roch is a very good an entertaining writer. Yes is employer is MASN which is owned by Peter Angelos but to say he is a schill for the Orioles is just not fair. He reports the good and the bad. Do you expect him to just to rip the Orioles?
  12. Why not Sell and Buy?

    I would argue that Houston really doesn't have to buy anything. They will be hard to catch. The Dodgers are close to that as well even though their division is real good.
  13. Is There A Path to 88 Wins for the O's?

    Please don't muddle these arguments with any facts. I understand why people are skeptical and/or negative. The last 50 games have been brutal to watch. However to say there is no chance this group of players can not play better isn't reasonable either. I have done well in roto leagues trading for players half way through the season that are performing way below their historical averages. It isn't unreasonable to believe that Kevin Gaueman, Chris Tillman, Manny Machado, and Chris Davis will have much better second halfs of the seasons. Will that be enough? I don't know. It doesn't feel that way right now but it isn't like we are asking them to do things they have not done in the past. The difference is that I will be rooting for them to have those better halfs and some people who just want to say they are right would rather see things come completely unhinged. That I don't understand.
  14. I would start Kevin Gausman Friday. Why? Not because he has really earned it but to me I think it is worth showing the confidence that he can still become the top of the rotation pitcher we (or some of us) hope he will become. His stuff is still TOR stuff. I believe (hope) his ERA will end up closer to 4 by the end of the season. Give Dylan Bundy the second start. Just a little more rest and maybe take a little pressure off his shoulders. He has to have felt if he didn't pitch 6 or 7 good innings no one was going to. This is just his first season in the rotation from the beginning of the season. Maybe even Tillman for game two because he needs to do something more productive if the Orioles are going to have a better second half. The last two you can draw from a hat.
  15. Where do you go if you want to purchse one of these?
