    The Pitching

    Because prior to having one O legally removed from his last name, he was Taylor Groover?

    Tulo?

    I see it as a win-win, with no way to really lose. Tulo wants a place to start, and there are not many of those out there. His power would play up here. Its a minimum investment, if he can't play then drop him and move on. If he can play, the Orioles benefit, and Tulo benefits by putting up big numbers in a bandbox like OPACY. I like the idea.
  3. I am all for the patience route at this point. Grenier is going to be a very good defensive SS as soon as they can get his bat to meh level. Think Bordick.

    Matt Wieters

    For that kind of money? Hell yes, I would bring him back.

    Brewers non-tender Schoop.

    Well, Buck and especially Dan should have been fired a long time ago. For sure. Schoop has the tools to be a very good third baseman imo. Is that a move I think the O's should make? Maybe not, his K rate and inconsistent offense is the biggest concern to me. I think Nunez is pretty interesting, I think I may prefer to go the Nunez route.

    Mark DeRosa Could Be Our Next Manager - Speculating

    The guy put "speculating" in the topic. And Mike Moustakis signed a one year low dollar deal to play last season. You don't think Moustakis is a better third baseman than Beckham? The board is about conversation, not reporting. Last time I checked, we were still allowed to speculate.

    Who do you think/hope will impress in ST?

    If Austin Hays can be the guy we thought he was going to be, that would be huge!

    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.
  13. Exactly how I feel. If DD stays this is not gonna go well.
  14. 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.
