    Hyde puts his own stamp on spring training

    Well NOW, there is a forum for music and I don't really go over there....but this is about Orioles Spring Training and the musical stylings of Dr. Jeckle, I mean Oriole Manager Hyde. Loosely interpreted of course. And Chris Davis is sick of being in Spring Training and has been since Saturday. What? Oh, I mean, Chris Davis has been in camp since Saturday but he is sick. He loves the Orioles and all of the other people playing 90's music at spring training. Please continue.

    Crush Davis is in the House!

    And I hope the clamor for that is driven right here.

    I'm with you, but I don't think it is really joking. It's more gallows humor. Everyone hopes he's fantastic. Most would be thrilled if he merely played to replacement level. And almost the same amount of people think that is impossible. And I think they all hope, they are wrong. I'm gonna cut the new guy some slack and I know you will too. And the Coolbaugh bit was a little funny. One out of three aint bad. It's better...nevermind. ;

    How good can the 2019 Orioles be?

    Oh, I disagree strongly Roy. I see the Orioles winning 50 games. My only question is whether it takes all of spring training, the 2019 season and next year to do it. But I do see it. Not if, but when!

    Roch: Caleb will not be back, "guaranteed"

    So, what you are saying, is you were FOR the rebuild, before you were AGAINST the rebuild. Check!

    Roch: Caleb will not be back, "guaranteed"

    Sorry guys...it was a joke. Didn't think that needed an emoji. No MLB team should have considered a multi year deal for Caleb. And I like the guy....

    How good can the 2019 Orioles be?

    Two pretty good posts. The job in front of us, or rather Mike Elias and the Orioles is tremendous. We really are not rebuilding. We are constructing. Small difference, but the magnitude is there. Last year, with skepticism, I looked through my orange colored glasses and hoped that with the addition of Cashner and Cobb, that the Orioles would have a chance for 87 wins and maybe squeak into the playoffs. The Orioles, as everyone knows missed that mark by 40 games. 40. With 160 Million or so, they went for it and tried to extend a window. It failed, but I do appreciate the attempt even if it was, in hindsight a poor one. This year, I hope for 63 wins and a #1 draft pick and I brace myself for painful construction of the future World Series Champion Orioles. As I fully expect to see lots of bad baseball, I will try and focus on little things. Signs of development, the inevitable dispatch of Chris Davis, hopefully the avoidance of games like the 30-3, or the Mothers Day Massacre. But the challenge. The real challenge will be to summon fortitude, to endure 2019 without judging from day to day. I don't want the O's to lose, nor to make decisions to lose. But I will try to brace myself for decisions that are designed to improve future Oriole teams. It's kinda funny and ironic, but if ever there was a year for a slogan. Buck up!!! I'm excited to see this thing get built and I know it will be harder than ever. We are behind everyone, and everyone seems to be coming to the same analytical table, but every journey begins with one step. I'm in.
