    Winter Trade Value

    I'm very much looking forward to the fresh sets of eyes looking over our current guys. How many players have we let go recently, only to have another team's coaching staff make minor adjustments, and suddenly those players are having success again...?
  2. Also because he's left handed. Although if some of you started ignoring and deliberately forgetting his at bats to the point to which you no longer knew that, I totally understand and empathize. 🤣
  3. Now all we need is the Onion article about Brady Anderson being reassigned as Siberian Scouting Director and we'll have had a full day.

    Rule 5 Draft discussion

    This could be a perfect season to pick up a few well-scouted rule five guys and get them into the system. This team will likely be living in the basement this season anyway.

    Key FA - Jose Iglesias

    I'm okay with a dumpster fire the next couple of seasons, as long as the correct moves are being made in the background to move us toward success. I know that many of you are as well. But not all of us are. And definitely, casual fans are not. We certainly need to try to maintain a facade of respectability.

    Ron Johnson

    I would not be shocked if we've already made our GM hire, and that person is taking care of some housekeeping stuff in the background until we can publicly announce them (right after the WS, so as not to step on MLB's) toes. Then again, these are the Orioles we are talking about here, so who knows?

    What is going on?

    Ah, kind of similar to what happened with the Ravens. We took the old Browns... then Cleveland got a new Browns. Regarding Nashville, I'm not really sure that they are hungering for baseball. I lived there for over a decade (moving back to Maryland in 2016) and when I would go to Sounds games from time to time (nice to catch a little live baseball now and then when your team is 700 miles away) they were never coming close to filling out their park. Granted it's a AAA park, but people at the games never really seemed to have any team spirit (few hats and jerseys, never really excitedly cheering the home team successes during games, et cetera)... it just felt like they were there like I was was... just there to catch a ball game now and then. Granted, Nashville really took well (surprised me, frankly) to the NHL when they expanded into town... but a hockey team can be successful with a much smaller fan base than a baseball team can.
  8. I'm trying very hard not to fall out of my chair from the pure shock of it all.
  9. Seriously. 7.5 K of the international money allotment? I could see it. 750k? Someone was seriously fleeced.

    O's need to a plan for SS this season

    So, what's César Izturis up to nowadays?

    O's need to a plan for SS this season

    I just love how everyone has given up on resigning Manny. Just because something has 415,000,000 to one odds, doesn't mean you give up! 😋

    Poll: Will the O's sign the Mesa brothers?

    We'd better do something good with that international money. It weighed in quite heavily to our moves last season.
  13. Being mid-range in the league in runs scored works just fine when you have a decent starting rotation and an elite bullpen to keep opposing runs off the board. Got a lot uglier once we stopped having those things.

    The Victor Victor Mesa/Sandy Gaston thread

    Also, that's a lot of extra money to be travelling with if he wants to visit Florida.

    The Buck Showalter Appreciation Thread

    Ah, yes. Complacently snubbed. 🤣
