    MLB and Union talk major rule changes

    I like it! How about five bases in an asymmetrical layout with a 10th man on the field - a 4th baseman. The union would certainly go for that and there's nothing like an element of confusion to keep the fans on their toes. But maybe that idea's just not radical enough. Maybe Rob's ahead of all of us and has already hired Japanese game show experts as consultants. I wonder if all of this couldn't be resolved by Rob Manfred no longer trying to satisfy everyone - owners and players - who have no intention of sacrificing anything tangible for the good of the game anyway. Just a crazy thought on my part.

    The same union that signs off on outlawing home runs.

    Shoot off one of your feet. No more people pointing out what a lousy dancer you are.

    Anyone Following Manny?

    No NTC though, absolutely no NTC. And he has to play 3B in deference to our new Cuban SS.

    Tropicana Field goes cashless

    Given the 2019 Orioles' prospects for success they may well go fanless so it would be a moot point, right?
  9. To the degree this is true, how Elias and his team addresses it is far more interesting than the upcoming draft. Fixing development and extracting maximum value out of what's already in the system needs to be the main priority IMO.

    Clay Davenport projects Orioles at 62-100

    Sure, and I get the need for the rebuild and I support it. Once. Whether it takes two years or five, at the end I want to see an organization that is built for sustained success, not for chasing "windows". One that considers the first overall draft pick as public confirmation of abject failure, which is exactly what it is. That will make the next few years worthwhile to me. What I don't get is the relish for strategic losing I see from too many posters here (not you) and elsewhere in the sports media. All of a sudden it's smart!!! I've read the books and my conclusion is that it's still losing whether or not you have a fashionable rationale that sounds good and makes you appear as if you're in-the-know. Here's a test. If someone's favorite team requires paragraphs of nuanced explanation to justify their support then perhaps it might be wiser if they said nothing at all - at least the the presence of fans of another, better team. A .600 winning percentage speaks for itself.

    God I hope not. Being the most contemptible loser in all baseball is bad enough the first time. Who the hell would want anything other than to end that as quickly as possible?

    Clay Davenport projects Orioles at 62-100

    I'll happily take 62-100 in 2019. I'll be overjoyed if they avoid 100 losses.
  13. If you haven't yet cultivated a taste for Dan Jenkins' fiction I highly recommend it.

    Who is filling out the lineup?

    He also said that the Orioles are a better team with a productive Chris Davis in the middle of the lineup. I think the truth is that a lot of things still remain to be determined. At least I hope so...
  15. Maybe that's because he's not as preoccupied as DD was with hiding the handcuffs. I'm starting to become a believer that it's truly a new day for Orioles ownership.
