  1. Curtis Granderson

    Especially considering what they paid Bautista last year. Assuming he replaces JB.
  2. Finite Resources

    This is a process they should start sooner rather than later though. What they are doing right now really does not make sense.
  3. Slow Offseason around MLB

    I don't think Baltimore is waiting to make a huge splash next season. I kind of likes Granderson at the $5 million he signed for in Toronto...feeding off of the reports that they may be looking for a left handed bat.
  4. Slow Offseason around MLB

    I'm really starting to believe that ownership has pulled the spending money from DD. I'm having trouble coming up with any other reason as to why they've done absolutely nothing.
  5. Projected Orioles Opening Day Payroll 2018

    Signings like that are exactly how they eased into 14 years of losing. Sometimes they have to make a tough short term decision in order for the long term. I don't think they will...but it is my hope.
  6. File and Trial Arbitrations?

    $16 million for Manny...that is kind of low in my opinion. Glad it's done though.
  7. MGon Signs with ChiSox

    Who would you offer $15 million in incentives?
  8. Mini Camp Thread

    As frustrating as the off season has been, I really miss baseball.
  9. What is Dan Duquette doing?

    Right. Players and agents know that there is a lot of money in baseball, but that should not mean overpaying for talent. Not having LA, Boston, or New York bidding has prevented absurd numbers from being thrown around in my opinion.
  10. Do the O's really need another lefty bat?

    I get down thinking about the team sometimes, but in the end I'll watch or listen to almost every game. One thing I know...life without baseball, good or bad, sucks. Also, 20 degrees sucks.
  11. So What is the Plan for Starting Pitching?

    If they don't know then we on OH have wasted a good portion of our lives. Knowing that you have a problem and being able to do something about it are 2 different things.
  12. Either cut Britton or give him a small extension

    There really isn't an incentive for Britton to sign anything. Take the $11+ million this year and come back late enough where a QO is out of the question. If he pitches well be will be in line for a healthy contract somewhere else, without a pick attached. I'm also skeptical that he will entertain the idea of going back to starting. Like it or not, the system in MLB favors the players.
  13. Wieters credited with helping Nats Pitching

    I don't know of many instances where he was criticized as a game caller. Most of the critics were not impressed with his offense. I may be remembering incorrectly though.
  14. I don't think he can comeback enough in any season remaining on his contract where he has the stats to equal his salary. Mike Napoli will potentially sign for a few million this year. Davis has the edge in power, but overall they are fairly similar statistically.
  15. Os requesting offers on Machado

    That was nice for a while. They never got to the WS, and may now be entering another downturn. We will see what happens.
