    Manny signs with Padres

    It definitely happens; won't argue with you there. But I think that whatever slim margin Harper's ceiling is offensively over Manny is washed out by their defense.

    Manny signs with Padres

    Crazy to me that Harper might get more money as the less valuable player.

    Manny signs with Padres

    Best case scenario for me (and I would think most of us). It will be a lot easier to follow Manny and be proud of him / happy for him on an NL West team than it would have been had he ended up with the Yankees or Red Sox (neither of which were all that likely, but still). I probably won't give him much more thought personally, but I am happy to know that he signed with a team that is about as far from Baltimore as it gets, both geographically and on the rivalry spectrum.

    Orioles Sign Alicides Escobar to MiL Deal

    We should be able to catch the ball fairly well this year I think. Not sure who's gonna hit or pitch well, but we should have a a decent infield defense. Step 1 towards becoming respectable again.

    WaPo: Spin Rates and Buy In

    Gotta help those guys change/simplify their approach to help them unlock their potential. One thing I hope the O's change is lifting organizational philosophies like making everyone pitch from the same damn side of the rubber. Figure out what works for each individual and let them be themselves.

    Which ex-Oriole would you have coach a current Oriole?

    Off the top of my head, I'd have Dempsey helping out out young catchers. Wynns specifically. He was a good defender, and despite the constant and rampant hyperbole, he's probably good a few pearls of wisdom to pass along. And as long as our broadcasters are coaching our players, might as well let Bordy and Palmer help out, too.

    Where would Richie Martin fit on the O's top 30?

    Good baseball name.

    Why do we need a President and a "GM"?

    That's a little unfair, considering there's just literally nothing to report. And you can't exactly go around bashing your employer on their dime, either. He's given nothing to report, so he reports nothing. Not a difficult concept.

    Ex-Orioles in the postseason

    The only reason I'm upset by Machado's departure at this point is because I wish we would have gotten more for him. Oh well, we all knew the FO was gonna blow it.
  10. Also true. Which is why saying he was "fired" is pretty misleading.
  11. I understand why they did this, but you shouldn't make a move unless you think you will definitively improve the position. I'm not convinced they will do that.

    Loverro: The Orioles could be sold this winter

    Sure, but I'm not clear on what - if anything - the MASN dispute has to do with who owns the Baltimore Orioles.

    Loverro: The Orioles could be sold this winter

    How is this any different from the Steinbrenners? Serious question.

    Good Riddance

    One game on either end of a 162-game season is too thin for bread. I'd say it was more of a sh!t wrap than a sandwich. LOL

    The Orioles' First Sweep of the 2018 Season

    I don’t care if we don’t win 50 games this year. Sweeping Toronto always makes me happy. My hatred for that organization knows no bounds.
