    Roch: Caleb will not be back, "guaranteed"

    Yeah I liked Caleb too but one of the last guys you should have been looking to extend and that would be the case even if we were contenders. It's tough because I know management does know these guys on a personal level and I know it's gotta be tough for a guy like Caleb to know he may have to move his family but it's the nature of the business unfortunately.

    A pivotal player in O's history that rarely gets mentioned

    Yeah it’s funny to say since he’s a HoFer but Luis is definitely under appreciated in Orioles lore. I know that when I think of him, I think of him as a White Sox but he had some good years in Baltimore and won a WS.

    Roch: Caleb will not be back, "guaranteed"

    Fasano is my favorite O’s backup catcher ever even though he didn’t grow the cool Fu Manchu here. He had his best hitting year here. But another old name, Paul Bako.

    Rich Dubroff: Joe Angel not returning.

    I bet Miller is gonna be with the Giants till retirement. He’s a Bay Area native. As for Bordick, I doubt Elias has any say in broadcasters. But yeah there’s something about Hunter. He’s too cheerful. I don’t need a cynic but he’s always been too upbeat for a franchise that’s been subpar more than not during his time here.

    It’s the right move. Caleb is a solid guy and easy to root for but at this point, it’s time to move on. Good luck to him.

    Yeah I like that Palmer will call out bad play too.

    Rich Dubroff: Joe Angel not returning.

    That’s awesome. Yeah I mean I try to be positive but those aren’t worthy of discussion. I don’t mind Hunter as a MC type for Opening Day but I’d rather someone else call the game.

    Rich Dubroff: Joe Angel not returning.

    Yeah he’s not lacking knowledge. I think Palmer has spoiled us. I used to watch a lot of Braves, Cubs, White Sox games since their games were nationally syndicated. And I’ve seen the Nats team too. I think we all want something different out of our broadcast teams.

    I hear ya. A good voice goes a long way.

    Yeah Hunter is a nice enough presenter type but not really fond of him as a broadcaster. A three game hitting streak really isn’t worthy of discussion and I think he’s a little too cheerful. Just my opinion obviously.

    Rich Dubroff: Joe Angel not returning.

    Harrelson thankfully retired but yeah he’s awful.

    Rich Dubroff: Joe Angel not returning.

    I do wish he were more insightful. He’s far from my least favorite but he doesn’t really stand out either. He’s just textbook middle of the road but we all have different things we like/dislike in broadcasters.

    Rich Dubroff: Joe Angel not returning.

    Yeah I do. Very forgettable. TBH I generally feel the color guy should have ties with the team or community and I think that’s why Palmer and Brother Low and Brooks before him are so well liked. Having personality helps too. I don’t dislike Bordick but he while he has legit O’s ties isn’t the most energetic guy.

    Rich Dubroff: Joe Angel not returning.

    That’s really too bad. Radio baseball isn’t what it once was and in fact most of the games I’ve heard Joe call were on MLB.com or the AtBat app on my phone but man he know how to call a game. I’ll miss being in the “WIN column” with Joe this year and beyond. Good luck to him in whatever he does. I would have loved to see a hypothetical game where Joe did PBP and Palmer color but they are best at their respective medium.

    Frank Robinson has passed

    Frank might be a little underrated because he doesn’t have that moment. Mays has The Catch. Mantle played for so many WS winners. And Hank of course broke Babe’s record. If I’d compare Frank to anyone, I’d say he’s Stan Musial while the other three are more like Williams and DiMaggio. A consistently solid professional who if you know baseball know he was an all time great but the casual sports fan overlooks.
