    Disappointment and despair will set in within the next 72 hours.

    Manny Machado Appreciation Thread

    Without a doubt. Nats stadium circa Sept. 2015. 8th inning, O's down by 1 in a tough fought game. On 3-2 count, Manny crushed a Sherzer fastball about 450 feet to take the lead and win the game. Indirectly led to Papelbon choking Bryce Harper in the Nats dugout a couple games later. Sweet, sweet memories.

    Machado Trade Expectations

    Why? Because we're going to lose 110+ games with Manny. We're going to lose 110+ games without Manny. Keeping Manny for the rest of the season is meaningless. Get what you can and shred his remaining salary from payroll.

    Sounds like you're saying the comp pick will be a sure thing. Nothing is a sure thing.

    Machado Trade Expectations

    LOL. Maybe Scherzer wants to pay Manny back for the monstrous , game-winning HR Manny hit against him in 2015 which ultimately led to Papelbon choking Harper in the Nats dugout a couple games later. Ahhh, the good ole days . . . . . .

    A. I think the Manny trade will definitely happen B. I just have this feeling that this board will absolutely implode, with disgust and anger, once we see the pieces we get in return.

    Should We Trade Cashner?

    I'm more in favor of the Cubs/Astros/Braves/Phillies model and just blow it all up. I'd seriously consider any reasonable offer for anyone on the team right now.

    Should We Trade Cashner?

    Absolutely worth listening to offers. Matter of fact, I'd say same thing about everybody on the team today - including Cobb, Bundy, Gausman, Castro, Givens, etc. All these guys will be long gone by the time the O's are competing for the AL East again.

    Is this rock bottom?

    We'll hit rock bottom at end-July when: - we have worst record in MLB - we weren't able to pickup any "A" prospects at trade deadline - we play hardball with the #11 pick and he decides to return to school - we draft a high school pitcher with the #37 pick and it turns out he has a serious shoulder injury

    Buck losing the Clubhouse?

    Of course when you're 14-32, there will be finger-pointing. However, there's not one single player on this team who can honestly say this debacle is someone else's fault. Everyone has contributed to the 32 losses. Stranded 14 runners yesterday. No one can hit the !@#$%%^ ball when it matters most. Only good news is you can't blame yesterday's embarrassment on Davis.

    Joseph Optioned to Norfolk (Booo!)

    Wow. I guess when you're in last place, 13-29 and you have vets who aren't producing, what the heck . . . Beginning of the beginning?

    Positive vibes only thread

    Although it seems like Chris Davis strikes out every AB, he actually does not lead the team in strikeouts.
  15. I was getting ready to post than anybody is better than what we currently have slotted for 3, 4 and 5. But if its really Anibal, I take it back.
