    Poll: Will the O's sign the Mesa brothers?

    I think they want to go to Miami. Is the money enough to overcome that? I doubt it.

    Duquette is expected to be fired

    well it is all opinion, but in my opinion he is a very good strength and conditioning coach. I also think he has good communication skills and a very solid baseball background centered around the Baltimore Orioles.

    Duquette is expected to be fired

    Exactly, and if the new GM wants to retain Brady Anderson then good deal. Brady Anderson takes a lot of crap around here, but he most certainly has value imo. Just hire the new GM and turn the reigns over to him. That's all. Because just like I did with Duquette, I will hold the new GM accountable. None of this, yeah but...bs. The GM is the Captain of the ship and it is his ship to sail or sink. DD sunk his ship, and good riddance.

    Duquette is expected to be fired

    The quote I read said they would hire a new GM who would then make ALL decisions on the baseball matters. Yes, that's a clean slate.

    Duquette is expected to be fired

    Thank goodness, a clean slate was what this organization needed. The talk that Duquette would stay on, made me sick. I feel much better about the future now, and we don't even know who will be the players. But clearly, it was time for a house cleaning.
  6. Exactly how I feel. If DD stays this is not gonna go well.
  7. I vote Rutschman, my mind could change. But right now its Rutschman for me and its not really close.

    Top Manager Candidates

    I like Bobby Dickerson for the job, think he is the perfect fit at least for the next couple years.

    DJ Stewart and Carroll are called up

    I like the looks of DJ Stewart. I think he should be given plenty of opportunity to play and show himself. That Lefty stroke of his would play well in OPACY. Not predicting anything with him, but he sure looks "hitterish" from my perspective.

    Per Nightengale: Dan Stays, Buck Goes.

    I am not pleased at all with this, if true. Needed a clean slate, and in my opinion we are in for a long and winding road back to respectability. Sucks.
  11. IMO, that would be a huge mistake. DD is the leader of this sinking (sunken) ship, and he is the first one that has to go. I also do not believe that we cannot hire a viable replacement. There are very few GM jobs in baseball, and a lot of talented young people chomping at the bit for their shot at the job. Gotta turn the page.
  12. First move, hire a new GM. Give that new GM full authority, and get out of his way. This whole staff, top to bottom needs to go and the Orioles need a fresh start with all new leadership from the front office all the way down to the coaching staff.

    An Early Look at the 2019 Draft

    I want Rutschman. Clearly.

    You're in charge: What would you do with Chris Davis?

    I negotiate some kind of a buyout, if possible. If Davis side does not entertain any buyout negotiations, then I cut him loose and bite the bullet. You cannot run the worst player in the history of the game out there for another season.

    Austin Hays off to slow start with bad approach

    I am really pulling for Hays. This has really been a lost season for the kid, but I am still a believer. Hays, Mullins and Diaz is my hope for the future O's OF. And I don't think it is too far fetched. That group would also be an excellent defensive OF, which we have not seen for a long time. C'mon Austin, put it in high gear.
