    Jim Callis sums up the O's really well

    I remember they selected Hobgood. I remember money/sign ability as being big reasons. I kno that selection was a total waste of the draft pick, the money, and the wasted roster spots. I hate to back Atomic ever but the Orioles have done a lot of stupid decisions in the last 20 or so years. That said, the fact that they are currently foot dragging on DuQuette and Showalter is just plain stupid. If they were replacing them it shouldve been done and if they were keeping them that should've been announced also.

    Mesa Brothers Declared Free Agents By MLB

    I think they should give V V Mesa the amount equal to the Marlins remaining budget and as a package deal give his brother the remaining balance. That would be like adding two high draft picks even if they aren't both 1st rounders. No other team can offer that much and give them the chance to stick together. IMO the Os should hire me to be their new GM 😂

    Final Roster

    I don't think it's fair to immediately say that Jackson will be a bust. It's not like his passing completion percentage 57% was Boller like 47%. I think what will ultimately doom Jackson is his reckless scrambling that gets him killed. I don't think he will listen to RG3 and learn a lesson. I think the try to do it with your legs is just who he is.

    RG3 yay or nay?

    RG3 will be the back up. If all three aren't active perhaps it would be RG that's inactive. If Flacco is injured I'm betting RG would be the starter the following week.

    You're in charge: What would you do with Chris Davis?

    Again he's hitting .226 with 7 homers in 150 ABs since the ASB. If he can somehow get to .250-.260 and cut down the strikeouts he's probably something you can live with. As it is at .226 you'd get 28 homes and 85ish RBI. You could live with that through the contract.

    Davis is hitting nearly .180 which means he's raised his average 30+ points since the all star break. Not a reason to get overly excited but there is some hope.

    Would you want to show up for the next 4 years knowing you aren't going to play? I know I would take 75 cents on the dollar to walk away . If you could. Do that you are probably not a competitor. Davis knows he's likely done.....and I'm not contracted......when I am no longer valuable my company would let me go and my compensation would end that day. Baseball is broken

    Actually meant homers ... but you get the point. The only leverage the Orioles would have in a buyout is Davis not wanting to be there. Probably won’t work but I’d take a shot. Id be upfront about the whole plan. You have an off-season to get straightened out and half season to prove it. if you perform under that you will be benched and rarely play. At that point we encourage you to retire and will compensate you with a buy out to do so.

    Personally, I'm open to give him the offseason to do something to revitalize his career and half season. I'd tell him he needs to be hitting .250 with 12-15 Ks at the all star break. When that doesn't happen I'd make it painful for him as possible. Play him one game a week and hopefully he looks for a way out.

    August Trade Stock Watch

    In other new Chris Davis has improved his average 20 points. Have to look for the positive right? Maybe he's primed for a playoff run 😜

    Could the Orioles Move Out of Baltimore in 2024?

    Yes you are correct You have every right to guide your children, I can speak for your leagues as I'm not sure where you are located. I do know that the high school federation has made drastic changes to the rules to protect kids both in regards to penaltie, ejections for targeting (blindside block, helmet to helmet, hands to the face, and defenseless player). I observed high school coaches doing group (4team) scrimmages and huddling together to discuss the attack on the game and personal conduct , I love the Orioles but football is he greatest game in the world.

    I've been a football official for 20 years. I've done everything from the From 6 year olds to Varsity level. The problem is way overblown! I can count the number of serious injuries on one hand and the number of concussions weren't much more than that. Its much more relevant in college and the pros

    This is also the case in football. There are only about 60% as many youth games as there was 10 years ago.
