  1. This spin and blame game has been going on since the trade deadline. Frankly I think it makes both Dan and Buck look smaller. And makes be happier that they are gone. I appreciate what they did here, and will never forget it. But that is behind us.

    Who do you think/hope will impress in ST?

    If you were a realist, and clearly you are not, your quote above would be the new GM saying to the new manager: Are you crying? Are you crying? There’s no crying in baseball! 😇

    Girardi: I’d like $5M a year min. Team: Uh Uh Girardi: I’m removing my name from consideration.

    Keeping the window open!
  5. No biggie, it's not a federal case. It is a big deal, and it will be remembered as a major bullpen management error..benchmark. It is not and never will be considered a top ten playoff blunder in the full history of baseball....outside of here. I thought I was wrong once...but I was mistaken.😜
  6. I agree with the second statement. But that is moving the goal posts from the first, which I think is incorrect.
  7. Agree Rick is correct, it is not a top ten blunder. And I don't think anyone outside of Baltimore will ever think it is. But it was a blunder and it was a big deal. IF Corn is disagreeing with the last line that it wasn't a blunder...well sure, but I believe Rick meant that line to agree with the first line....that it wasn't a top ten blunder. The Orioles were a weak playoff team and a successful playoff run would have required many wild risks to payoff. History should note that a wild and lose Buck was sent home early, with his Ace in the hole, but with a pretty weak hand regardless. That is just fact.

    Top Manager Candidates

    Well I’d be crushed if we announced a manager and still had no GM in place. It would completely fly in the face if we are hiring someone and letting them run the team. So...until there is a GM/Pres or whatever structure the leadership takes...I’m not thinking about manager and I don’t think the Os are either. Hopefully our wait isn’t too long, but process here is important.

    Ex-Orioles in the postseason

    Maybe, but that was much earlier even before his big contract.

    Ex-Orioles in the postseason

    2017 O’s lost something and clearly the 2018 never had it. But I still wonder what blew that clubhouse up. Maybe they just ran outta luck. Maybe it reached midnight and the horses turned back into mice. But seeing Miley, one has to wonder if he somehow stole the glass slipper and took it with him.

    The Victor Victor Mesa/Sandy Gaston thread

    Not my argument, but until something crosses beyond the level of: the ball is coming out of his hand real well... You’re not even in the ball park of really bad cliches. Of course that’s just one man’s opinion. My 2 cents. In my humble opinion. 😜

    The Victor Victor Mesa/Sandy Gaston thread

    Sure seems like an awful waste of an opportunity for the agents. All the hype in Miami from location to dad. If all this is show, to what end? No, I think it is to convince the Orioles to go all in. And they should.

    The Victor Victor Mesa/Sandy Gaston thread

    You would think so. Honestly, if we make offers I expect we can get em and if not, then, congrats to the Mesa family for proving that it really doesn't always have to be about the money. But it IS about the money, so we should be ok....
