  1. This is just from personal experience, so take it with the appropriate grain or two of salt. Roy is a very good man, and his charity is a really , really worthwhile cause. I have been fortunate to support the charity, and even more fortunate this morning to look at my 1983 signed World Series bat, from the last auction. Win, win all around. Yes, we actually won the World Series, which is hard to believe after the trials and tribulations this year has brought. Keep up the good work, Roy. The work needs to be done, from where I sit, and you are doing it.

    Just a quick message. Been an Os fan since 1966. That season was a tad bit better to bear than this season. My favorite Os are Brooks, Frank, Eddie, and for personal reasons, my favorite is Jim. Roy has offered me the opportunity to enjoy what are truly treasured memories - the items have been great. To know that the proceeds of the auctions are going to help those who need a chance in life - easily, and truly, the icing on the cake. I have enjoyed these auctions, very much
  3. Just a quick, personal note. Want to say how much I have enjoyed these auctions. Roy has offered great items, for a great cause. Still smile every morning when I look at the signed Palmer jersey and the Rockwell print, signed by Brooks. Good memories, and it's nice knowing that kids who deserve an opportunity are getting one, through Roy's charity.
  4. Great write up, Luke. Based on what you have seen from McKenna, what do you think his ceiling is? Fourth outfielder? I noticed in your Top-50 scouting report, he made an adjustment to his swing last season, with good results - he will be a player I'll be tracking.

    What are you listening to right now?

    Green Grass and High Tides, by the Outlaws. What great guitar solos. I am a computer idiot - wish I could post the link. Latecomer to the thread, but love it. ScOtt is the Jim Palmer / Brooks Robinson / Dave McNally / Tom Shopay (don't know why I suddenly remembered him) of this thread.

    Hank, I am just reading this. I am sorry to hear the news, yet very pleased with the outcome. You wit has added much to these boards over the years, so I am very glad to hear the good news. My guess is that your life will change dramatically come June, but the little one will be in good hands.

    Orioles Farm: Good, Bad, or Ugly

    Probably not the best place to reply, but I just want to thank Luke-OH. You have been such a tremendous resource to these boards. I passionately follow my beloved O's, but I have neither the time (wish I did) or resources to follow them as I should. Luke-OH has provided a ton of insights which have been so helpful to me in following the O's. A ton of work on his end, a ton of enjoyment on this end.
  8. SteveA, I am really enjoying this thread. I have a Jim Gentile autographed baseball - what a season he had in 1961. Keep up the good work - this is great being able to relive so many memories.

    Don Baylor has passed away

    My memory may be foggy, but I always was under the impression that Don wanted to remain an Oriole. Reggie and Kenny, not so much. That trade saddened me very much, but as Frobby astutely pointed out, Kenny did us a favor when we traded with the Yankees. Just very sad to see Lee May and Don Baylor pass. I'm getting old.
