    The Colby Rasmus Appreciation Thread

    Yes 3M is small but they twice sold second round picks over a similar amount of money. Obviously the team wasn't interested in just eating deals of that size. I would think that a team like that wouldn't offer Rasmus (or Tillman) a deal like that.

    As Tony said, the issue a lot of us had was him getting a 3M major league deal. If he had come to spring training on a minor league deal it would have been a different story. Why would a team that sold draft picks to pay off contracts of a similar size give a deal like that?

    The Colby Rasmus Appreciation Thread

    I'd argue that free agent signings are pretty low on the lists of things I want to assess. I'm much more interested in how they add talent in the minors and develop it.

    I blame the O's for offering him the contract, not him for accepting it.

    Not unless there was a buyout of some type we are not privy to. He retired.

    I think the magnitude of the error is going to make it an evergreen reference. I think this is true not just for Oriole fans but baseball fans in general. It might be a top ten playoff blunder of all time.

    I respected him the first time he did it.

    A Few Questions About Some Former Orioles

    I don't see Buck taking a two hour written test. If I'm Billy Eppler I'm not replacing a manager with as much power as Scioscia had with someone like Buck. I'd like a chance to run the show without manager interference. Of course it wouldn't surprise me to see Arte Moreno bypass his GM.

    There is credit and there is the "in Buck I trust" mentality that pervaded this board for years. To some posters he was beyond criticism.

    We can't criticize their choice until they make it.

    A Few Questions About Some Former Orioles

    Pretty sure Rickey Henderson wasn't playing minor league ball at 46 because he needed the money. Lew Ford probably isn't broke and he is playing minor league ball at 41. Some guys like to play. I can see Jones picking NPB over a gig in AAA. I can certainly see him picking the NPB over retiring at such a young age.

    A Few Questions About Some Former Orioles

    Bringing in an in decline "star" to attempt to boost attendance is a classic Peter Angelos move. There is no good baseball reason for the O's to bring back Jones. I also don't think he's going to sell many tickets.

    If that happens it means whomever they brought in to be president doesn't have the ultimate decision making authority. No way a team like the 2019 Orioles needs an Adam Jones.

    You point being? I never said he had to keep working.
