    Top Manager Candidates

    Yeah I bet we hire a GM first, that makes some sense. Wish we had some news on how that search was going though. Actually, according to Roch's blog this morning, the are looking to hire a "President of Baseball Operations" and then from there that person might bring in a GM. We can cross Cal off the list it seems. Poor guy......at least that will give him more time to focus on suing his hometown.

    OK if Girardi interviews with Cincinnati but not here I will officially feel slighted......................

    Thank you Mike Crabtree for catching the football.

    Week 6 @ Nashville

    Someone needs to work on their self-control a bit. I too don't really want to make a prediction for this week after what happened with CLE. Gonna let this one ride and we'll see what happens.
  5. Because he will be non tendered? I mean......it seems highly likely to me that he will be anyway.

    Week 5 @ Cleveland

    I think you summed it up extremely well in that first sentence Camden. I too was pretty optimistic about this team in general that it might be 'different' and then this game happens and I can't help but think 'same old same old.' I've seen the ravens go into so many road games over the years and just absolutely tank and look like they don't know what they're doing. Our next 3 games are all against teams with winning records (NO and CAR only have one loss apiece) and then we have PIT and CIN again! It ain't getting any easier.

    https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/2015/04/13/tax-day-april-15-accountant-pro-athletes/25742385/ Short version - taxes for professional athletes are super complicated and there are a lot of state (and city) taxes that get levied when you're on the road. yikes.

    I think the Ravens win. I definitely could see a blowout happening.....I think we win by two scores. Dangerous I know.

    I'm sure the cost of living is higher in Miami vs here (on average). So that's a decent point, you'll make more money in Baltimore AND that money will go farther on average than it would in Miami. But I'm sure you can find really expensive neighborhoods around Baltimore and probably inexpensive areas in Florida.......just depends on what kind of lifestyle you want.

    actually, this math logic is wrong. A $3M salary in Florida costs you nothing in state income tax. A $4M salary in Maryland costs you around $220K in state income tax. So really it's over 6 figures you're sending to Annapolis. Not exactly chump change. So the net is closer to 3.8M to play up here.

    Hmmmm, an extra million to play in Maryland vs Florida. Of course, once you factor in the state income tax in MD (roughly 6% when you get to numbers that high but we can call it 5.5%). That extra million is really only an extra 950K or so ;).
  12. I agree that the decision to let Buck finish out the season was probably made out of respect to him. Or complete paralysis because of the total and absolute leadership vacuum in the warehouse. But I'm feeling a little charitable today for some reason.
  13. I think it was Caleb Joseph's little 'outburst' that doomed him.

    Well I feel fairly confident at least that if we DO manage to somehow blow this signing it won't be because of the money. It will be because he would rather play in Miami or whatever. Not much we can do about that.

    $500K is what we call a 'rounding error' situation among friends.
