  1. With the different affiliates and the logistics that get involved it would be prudent to keep someone on staff that can keep the affiliates informed as to their respective roles. If someone does not think this is important than maybe they want the entire understructure form Rookie Ball to AAA rebuilt from finding new affiliates to filling the roles on those staffs. This would be counterproductive in my opinion.

    Top President / EVP Candidates?

    Titles depend on their previous position. Upward movement in the ranks is just another "Title" change. Its kinda like One of Forty on the roster. Some are starters, some are Twenty-Five Fillers, the rest are forty roster fillers. All would be Orioles until "FIRED" just have a pecking order in place.

    TT: Silence of Ownership is Deafening

    It would be real simple to see if he is completely on board with you. "Brady, I need you to tell Mike Wright that he is being releaed through the waiver process and will not be offered a MiLB contract". If he bulks even a little, "Brady, You are fired"

    Let the 40 man roster moves begin!

    I would add Andrew Susac and Mike Wright to your list as they have no options remaining for 2019. I think Rickard has one left, Caleb Joseph has one left. Beckham because of the cost. Susac, Wright and Beckham would be my three. If five are needed Add Rickard and Caleb Joseph.

    Key FA - Jose Iglesias

    Moustakas turned down his player option with Brewers that was to give him $15 Million. He turned it down not the Brewers which would lead me to believe he is looking for a 3 year deal for $50 to $45 Million which would be out of the area of a rebuilding Orioles Team IMO

    Buck speaks

    When did Buck Bat, Field or Pitch??/ Did you watch the games?? I may have missed that.
  7. In the Ninth inning, with two runners on base, both Adam Jones and Nick Markakis have ONE Career Homerun. Nicks was a walk off, Adams was not. Nicks was this year, Adams was in 2014

    TT: Silence of Ownership is Deafening

    What I do not get is why someone standing at a podium or sitting behind a microphone would give people a better "FEELING" than issuing a press release. Does seeing someone in person make it more warm and fuzzy?? Does having a face to the statement make it more True?? Do they not believe printed word but need a "Face" to the words???

    Would not this type of statement be coming from the new Executive In Charge Of Baseball Operations??

    TT: Silence of Ownership is Deafening

    Why would any management team of any team in any sport admit to doing that??? Why would the Fan Base need to know that??? The slot money expiration date is June 15 2019. That make all the players from now until then on the International front available to the Orioles first since they have the most $$$ remaining. Too say they are not spending this money or using it needs time to have this years International Free Agent period expire before making such a statement. June 15 is also the Amateur Draft in the US. They may still trade the slotting money for competitive balance draft picks if any of the other nine teams that get those picks would rather spend on the international front.

    It's the Red Soxs and Dodgers, I could care less. So to me ,your failure was the first 16 innings also.
  12. Nick Markakis Innings 7 thru 9 280/354/408/762 Adam Jones Innings 7 thru 9 258/276/405/701 I would take Nick Markakis

    Not singling you out, but this statement has/was made by the pessimist group on here for every Free Agent that the Orioles missed on. As with any signing that is not through a draft, the players get to make the choice not those doing the courting. They did not want to come here.

    A Few Questions About Some Former Orioles

    Adam Jones would have a better chance of Posting Up every day than would Gentry IF history has any relevance.
