    Yes. I was wondering if it we're just me or not.

    Hader and the Orioles Judgement

    30 years ago when I was the age he was of the tweets, I was most certainly homophobic. I didn't know any other way at that time. I'm not that way now. I have allowed life to teach me and grow over the years. I have no comparison for the racist stuff though. Life is hard. You don't always make the best decisions, but what you learn and how you grow will always be the most important thing to me. I'm not going to sit here and pass a judgement on someone I don't know just because they make stupid choices. I just choose to leave people like that alone.

    I think the money is being spread around a bit more on the lower to middle of the spectrum.

    Supply and demand. Salaries have climbed at some points quicker than profits. Which free agent that didn't get what they wanted last off season would have been a good overpay?

    Good way to kill the game. Players are making more now than ever...all the while attendance and interest is waning.

    Manny Machado Appreciation Thread

    I know Manny has had some ups and downs, but I've enjoyed watching him. As I get older and the age gap between myself and the " new" players grows larger, I realize there may only be so many more like Manny in my time. Thanks and good luck Manny.

    What does that matter when making a "semi" farewell statement?

    Mullins and Stewart aren't getting any younger

    Most likely neither will own a 5 year major league career. I would like to see them over what they are doing now, but it's not like they need to be forced up with a terrible team.

    I don't see us winning 50 games.

    Ok...so according to Tim Kurkjian, they finished a combined 31 games out of first place for the decade of the 70's. This season alone, they will be 40 games out at the ASB. I'm just glad that nobody has lost their job. It would be a shame if someone was held accountable for this.

    I'm guessing you are referencing my post? Either way... my wording may have been off. My perspective is fine. I just wish they would make some necessary changes (which may come in time), and move on with some of the younger players.

    Nope...I was there. They were the best of times.

    It is an embarrassment to baseball, and to Baltimore. I think they could have an uptick once they start moving some players in trades, but this will certainly leave a "black eye" for me. Usually I listen to games as long as they are on, regardless of who is playing. Not so much this year. It is depressing.

    We are already there! Maybe pages compared to Davis's K's?

    Did Anyone Expect it to be THIS Bad?

    The Cal and Manny comparison is hilarious. You may want to check with the stats before you say Cal isn't nearly the player Manny is.

    He'll be out the rest of the season. Maybe next year.
