    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.
  2. 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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    OMG. You're relentless. You absolutely hate Cashner, Cobb, Tillman and Brady. We got it the first 50 times you said it. Give it a rest.

    Cobb is a talented MLB pitcher who had a bad year. And you don't like Brady. We get it. Take a deep breath and give it a break already.

    You do realize Cobb was ranked as one of the 2017/2018 Top Ten free agents by most major publications, right?

    When will the Orioles Announce hirings?

    I always thought Tampa Bay had the one of the best -run organizations in MLB. Playing in the AL East, they won 90 games this year with a payroll of about $70MM. I don't know how they do it year-in-year-out but I wish we could raid their F.O. of a couple key pieces to find out.
  14. Look at Schoop's value post-trade. Basically a part-time player without a defined position.

    Jim Callis sums up the O's really well

    Are you saying the O's stink this year? Thank you Captain Obvious.
