    Interesting FAs

    Mark Zuckerman thinks Wieters could drop to 1/$3M or 1/$4M. Could mentor Sisco/Wynns. Works well with young pitchers. Rather see him than Caleb. May put a few more butts in seats. http://www.masnsports.com/nationals-pastime/2019/01/host-of-2018-nationals-still-seeking-jobs-in-tepid-market.html

    Bobby Dickerson hired by Phillies

    Why the delay? Cashman is playing it smart. Manny made a huge mistake by letting the world know that the Yanks are his dream team. Cashman knows he can get Manny at a discount. Let the Phils and WSox pony up their best and final to set ceiling and Cashman will come in with well-below-ceiling offer and snag him.

    An Early Look at the 2019 Draft

    Could we see changes to MASN? Please?

    Agreed. Hire more women. I'd tune in to see Britt McHenry provide on-field updates - that's fer sure

    Rumors and News

    If healthy, I think Donaldson is the best 3B in MLB (yes, including Manny). He could do for ATL what Nelson Cruz did for us in 2014.
  6. Thanks for refreshing post Tony. The doomers and gloomers on this board wear me down. Time to celebrate new beginning and stop harping on the past mistakes.

    Update: Elias brings in Sig Mejdal:

    OFF TOPIC but I must say my all-time favorite blackjack tables were at the old Playboy Club Casino in A.C. Beautiful women, many in bunny outfits, dealing cards while I gambled and drank.
  8. Hate to admit it but the RSox made the bold moves required to win a W.S. Winning the W.S. in 2004, 2007, 2013 and 2018 is impressive in that you have to completely rebuild the team at least three times to pull that off. Conversely, you have teams like the Nats who have had the core talent (combined with the richest owner in MLB) to win it all since 2012 But they were always afraid to pull the trigger on moves that would kick them over the edge. Now the window is closing on that core without even a playoff series victory.

    Sandy Gaston (Orioles miss out)

    For standard in-demand free agents, how do any teams know how much other teams are bidding? Its all a big secret and everybody essentially bids against themselves? Don't think so.

    Sandy Gaston (Orioles miss out)

    The Marlins bid against themselves? Not likely . Another team obviously had a bid on the table that the agent used as leverage.

    Sandy Gaston (Orioles miss out)

    Why did the Marlins rush out and trade for more cap space?

    The Victor Victor Mesa/Sandy Gaston thread

    I really think the O's, with the $6.7M, hold all the cards in this situation. They could offer the whole load to VVM or split it between Jr. and Gaston or trade it for a prospect. If they somehow blow this and walk away empty-handed, I swear I will storm the warehouse with pitchforks and torches.

    The Victor Victor Mesa/Sandy Gaston thread

    O's should offer the "mystery team" their full $6M + allotment in exchange for one of their top-15 prospects. Make same offer to Miami. Let them compete against each other. At least with that, O's don't walk away empty handed.

    The Victor Victor Mesa/Sandy Gaston thread

    I think they did. That`s why Miami is scrambling to come up with more space. I bet Jeter thought he could offer the three a piece of their $4m alottement and assumed they would take it. If O`s play it smart, they'll force Miami to spend everything they have on VVM. The O's scoop in and outbid everyone else for the other 2.

    Roch tweeted that the O's contingent was meeting with all 3 today.
