    Happy Thanksgiving

    Happy Thanksgiving, to those who make this such a great message board. Safe travels, and best wishes!
  2. Can't say I really have a huge interest in either team. I have been watching Messrs. Pearce and Machado. One has made me very happy with how he has played.
  3. 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.

    CLOSING TONIGHT OUR FINAL ORIOLES AUCTION FOR THIS SEASON

    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
  5. Good call on the Schoop jersey...and you get a second jersey off you win. Both together are probably worth about $400..Good luck!

  6. You have nothing to feel awful about. Thanks for your bids! Good luck in the auction and in your life.

  7. 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.

      I appreciate your efforts - very much.  I am so glad that you will be spending time with people who meant a lot to me growing up.  Was wearing a Palmer jersey today.  Hate that people look at it and ridicule the Orioles for this year's performance, but they will always be my baseball team.  Again, please enjoy your weekend.  

  12. just got a bid of $600 for the baseballs...Wanna go to $650?

  13. 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.
