  1. Tillman back. Are we happy?

    Anybody else find it curious that the Tillman deal still hasn't been announced? Maybe it's related to his physical or things are stirring regarding the 40-man roster.
  2. Os requesting offers on Machado

    Is Pittsburgh's haul in the Cole trade the template for the return one might expect for Manny?
  3. Os requesting offers on Machado

    Why would Arizona give up Walker when their pursuit of Machado indicates they are obviously trying to win this year?
  4. Os requesting offers on Machado

    Do the O's say no to Brandon Drury, Jon Duplantier and Anthony Banda?
  5. Os requesting offers on Machado

    Roch in his latest tweets says the Cardinals have definitely pulled back but other teams are still "hovering." O's will continue to plan as if Manny is an O but aren't shutting the door.
  6. Carson Kelly

    Why can't Sisco DH? We need left-handed bats in the worst way.
  7. Os requesting offers on Machado

    When reporters write that none of the White Sox "top prospects" have been offered for Machado that could just mean that Moncada, Jimenez, Robert and Kopech haven't been offered. They are generally the highest rated prospects, at least that's the conventional wisdom. There are a lot of attractive pieces outside of those four: Giolito, Cease, Hansen for instance...
  8. Os requesting offers on Machado

    Roch in his latest blog says the O's are paying close attention to the players the Cardinals surrender to the Marlins in the Ozuna deal. Cites the Cards as "serious contenders" for Machado. Mike Matheny is quoted as saying obtaining another hitter after Ozuna "is on the table" for St. Louis.
  9. Lee May

    I was at that game in May 1979 when the Big Bopper crushed a ball to left in Memorial Stadium for a grand slam against the Angels. That's also my favorite memory of Lee May. We won 9-1 that Saturday night and the next afternoon Dennis Martinez had a no-hitter into the seventh until Don Baylor broke it up. The O's were in the midst of a 15-1 run and they looked like no one in the world could beat them. Good times indeed...
  10. Machado Gold Glove Finalist

    Manny is going to win...
  11. Showalter to meet with Rasmus

    I really like LaRussa, having dealth with him on a professional level (this is long past 1983 when I would have knee capped him). But I completely understand where Weams is coming from and I don't disagree. Bottom line is if Buck thinks Colby is Oriole worthy then I'm all on board. In Buck I trust. And DD.
  12. The radio interview with Tony Rasmus where he blames LaRussa took place in August 2014
  13. That article makes me feel worse about Rasmus. Dad is still blaming LaRussa three years later. Seriously?
  14. I remember Lough very well from that July series in KC last summer. I had never heard of him but he stood out as a high-energy player. Love the glove, especially. I felt that McLouth was ordinary at best out in LF last year. But like others, I still think we need some real pop at DH. I don't think Morales is worth a draft pick.
  15. Logan Morrison (to Seattle?)

    Why not Smoak as the left-handed hitting DH who can also spell Davis occasionally at first? Smoak hit 18 homers as a lefty last year and had a .361 OBP from the left side. My guess is he'll come rather cheaply in more ways than one.
