  1. Adam Jones Speaking out on Twitter.

    I hope Jones doesn't discover the Hangout. It could get ugly.
  2. Adam Jones Speaking out on Twitter.

    Is there any better way to telegraph that he isn't interested in a team friendly extension. 3 years/$24 mill is about what I think he's worth on an extension. This has Markakis part Deux written all over it.
  3. Are There Three Internal SP Candidates

    You seem to forgot he's a nugget. #ourace If Tillman isn't signed by the time pitchers & catchers report, I can't see the O's not giving him at least a milb deal.
  4. Are There Three Internal SP Candidates

    I wonder if someone like Wells would get a look. He had an amazing stretch of innings w/o a walk. I can't remember how long. He's like the anti-Ubaldo.
  5. Anyone On Here With Close Connections To Ownership?

    If he can pitch, he could be the Amish Ohtani. This could be another underutilized talent pool the O's could dominate. The O's own the Amish baseball pipeline.
  6. Slow Offseason around MLB

    It would have really made a lot of sense before the 2017 trade deadline. The Astros could have been paying him to not pitch instead of the O's.
  7. Orioles youth movement

    Window, more like pinhole.
  8. Job Fair

    How about the county fair? Set up a booth with a radar gun. Sign anyone who breaks 85.
  9. The Yankees Know The Orioles Want Two Starters

    At the risk of ticking off all O's fans, why not include Jones in a trade with Manny for Ellsbury + prospects? That would be a Houston sized tank job.
  10. Orioles Interested in Carlos Gonzalez?

    Hits home runs, strikes out a ton, and can't play defense. He fits the "Orioles Way"
  11. Os requesting offers on Machado

    The O's front office and many fans falsely believe there will be a huge return for 1 year of Manny. According to Steve Adams (mlbtraderumors.com), the return won't be huge even if the O's took on Ellsbury contract. There is no chance the O's get Severino, and I doubt the Yankees are trying to trade their #2 starter, Gray, for Manny. Chat With MLBTR's Steve Adams: 1/5/18 Socrates 2:37 Could one sell the Orioles on taking on Ellsbury if the Yankees included Chance Adams, Miguel Andujar, Clint Frazier, and Justus Sheffield for Machado? Steve Adams 2:37 That is a ludicrous amount to surrender for one year of Machado and the shedding of Ellsbury's contract.
  12. Slow Offseason around MLB

    Hosmer supposedly has multiple 7 year offers from Royals and Padres on the table. These offers don't make sense for either team. KC must want to sign the "fan favorite" to put butts in the seats. That worked out well for the O's. https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2018/01/eric-hosmer-multiple-7-year-offers-royals-padres-rumors-free-agent.html
  13. The 2018 Offense (so far)

    I hope the 2018 O's lose early and often. That does not sound like something an O's fan would say. If the O's are out of playoff contention by June, maybe they can make the trades they need to make to rebuild. I already assume the 2018 O's are going to be between mediocre and very bad. I just don't want to have to watch another long stretch of losing seasons. A .500ish season is counterproductive to the long term success of the O's. Prepare to see one of the O's better prospects traded for a #5 starter.
  14. Three Trades - One FA signing

    I nominate you for GM in 2019. It would take DD about 3 offseasons to make that many moves.
  15. Wieters credited with helping Nats Pitching

    No catcher could save last year's pitching staff. I don't think Johnny Bench (or any other catcher) could turn Miley, Ubaldo, and Tillman into major league starters.
