  1. If the Ravens Lose to the Bengals, <BLANK> should be fired.

    I halfway agree with you. I think there are other issues affecting ticket and PSL sales because it is happening all around the NFL, not just Baltimore.
  2. Os requesting offers on Machado

    Unfortunately that person owns the team.
  3. My wife says I have the crazy part down pat.
  4. So What is the Plan for Starting Pitching?

    I'm working out the old chicken wing. I throw in the 70's now. Mostly on a declining plane.
  5. What Do You Think was Communicated

    If an Owner, who is obviously very astute in certain business ventures, can't see where their Baseball team is right now they are blind. I don't care who they listen to. Use your own power of observation and act accordingly.
  6. What Do You Think was Communicated

    There is only one constant to the way the Orioles are run. It's easy to figure out.
  7. As Owner there is one other thing I would make clear. While making money is nice, the way to do that is build a winning team and organization. Get to the Playoffs and win a WS or 2. If your GM and Management team feel they cant do that, find someone else.
  8. What Do You Think was Communicated

    And getting to the heart of the matter what was communicated really isn't important. Angelos is a Lawyer and loves to litigate. Which means dragging things out. Look at the Masn lawsuit. Look at his entire legal career. His strategy most of the time is to wait the other side out. That has also become the way the Orioles operate. They can't even get the contracts out to their employees in a normal span of time. It's unfortunate but that's the way it is.
  9. What Do You Think was Communicated

    I would like to make a point. When an Owner says competitive he really means, keep the Fans buying tickets, but we aren't winning the WS or anywhere close.
  10. I would never let it get that far. Not only with the GM and Manager but the Coaches and Minor League staffs, Scouts, etc. The Orioles have always drug this out far too long. You assess whether you want them back and extend them or have a succession plan in place. Nothing worse than lame duck leadership.
  11. Os requesting offers on Machado

    The other thread got me thinking. If I'm running a team and are very close to getting to the WS who will help me the most? If I need a position player it's Manny, hands down. If it's a pitcher, maybe Archer. I'm just not sold on a guy that loses that much, stats or not.
  12. As an Owner first you have to define where you are in the market. The Orioles are a mid market team, therefore you have to operate that way. That means you don't have the luxury of making big FA mistakes and covering them with more money. Second you have to do everything you can to bring in talent in a cost controlled way. Draft, International market, etc. Third, you need a great scouts and development people. And pay the people that run the Minor League teams, and Scouts a little more so you get the best people you can. That would pay off big time. Then you hire people that are familiar with this way of operating. Set a budget. And let them do their jobs. The best trait of a Leader is to hire good people and let them do their jobs. They might make mistakes but as the Owner you can step in from time to time to limit them. Do not micromanage. Professionals need to know their judgement is trusted. If I hire someone I'm letting them have freedom to do the job I hired them for. As Owner you would have to be involved with any large financial transactions. Other than that let the Baseball people run the ship. It takes time to build a Baseball Organization. Continuity is a must. Set goals and evaluate everyone. Simple to me.
  13. Os requesting offers on Machado

    Manny in Colorado might hit 50 dingers. I didn't know they were interested.
  14. Os requesting offers on Machado

    Asking for would be the better wording. I don't see them getting that. But it's better to start high and go down.....
  15. Os requesting offers on Machado

    Yes, in a heartbeat.
