  1. <p><p><p>Thanks for the heads up. Being handled.</p></p></p>

  2. Here's an io9 article on tennOsfan's true crime book: http://io9.gizmodo.com/the-bizarre-facebook-hoax-that-escalated-into-a-real-li-1762068298
  3. Coincidentally, I think OldFan's wife said something similar in this thread. http://forum.orioleshangout.com/forums/showthread.php/94444-Warning-To-Those-Trying-Levitra-For-the-First-Time!
  4. Meh, couldn't you say all of this about the O's themselves, and how they're really just interlopers from St. Louis?
  5. That hasn't been true (the Colorado part) since 2007.
  6. Great episode. It's too bad that they aired the episodes back-to-back, because it made it seem like Peggy recovered from her injury overnight. Sent from my KFTT using Tapatalk
  7. I'll ask you, then: should the O's make a QO to Pearce?
  8. I suppose I can maybe see O'Day getting a 3/27 offer from somebody, maybe even with a QO attached, and maybe he would see that as preferable to 1/16, and maybe he wouldn't care about resetting the salary scale for relievers despite being the union rep, so maybe he would turn a QO down. But that's a lot of maybes, probably 3 or 4 too many for a risk-adverse team like the O's. Meanwhile, sure the O's could afford to pay O'Day $15.8M if Chen, Davis, and Wieters all walk. But then you have to ask yourself how likely it is that they would be competitive without those guys, and if they're not going to be competitive, then why the heck would they want to pay $15.8M to a set up guy?
  9. Has any relief pitcher in history ever made $15.8M in a season? I think O'Day might be under pressure to accept it, to reset the salary guidelines for all relievers. That wasn't an issue for Cuddyer.
  10. You cannot pay a set up guy $15.8 million per year. End of story.
  11. Just noting that the Nats wanted to trade for Parra at the deadline, but the Lerners wouldn't approve the increase in payroll.
  12. According to the Post, the one-year offer left Black "deeply offended." https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/sports/wp/2015/11/03/after-bud-black-negotiations-leave-the-nationals-shifting-to-dusty-baker-the-lerner-family-has-a-fiasco-on-its-hands/
  13. I'm pretty sure that Angelos gives Duquette a budget that DD has to live with. Could the O's afford more? Probably. But it doesn't really matter, because if PA says the budget is $120 million, then what is DD supposed to do?
