    TT: Silence of Ownership is Deafening

    Maybe they are waiting for all the other teams to fill the positions, so that who they are looking at can not say that I am still talking to Texas and San Fran. It will be like musical chairs with either one to three chairs left.

    When will the Orioles Announce hirings?

    I watched last Saturday, did Tom ever talked about the O's or did I miss it. How about spending some time on the 40 man roster, who goes who gets added. Take a look at the minor league players of note that may help is 2019. Who is playing winter ball. I do not want to here about the Dodger's uniform for 30 mins. Come on Tom Sat is the O's talk show.

    Top President / EVP Candidates?

    If from the Dodgers, my vote is Josh Byrnes, Sr VP baseball Ops, in charge of supervised scouting and player development. Has been Asst GM for the Rockies/Red Sox/Diamondbacks and Padres.

    Sandy Gaston (Orioles miss out)

    Offer him 3.5 mil and get it done.

    Should the O's protect Cervenka from the Rule 5 draft?

    Yes, I would have him play at Norfolk and Sisco to Bowie.

    Dan to Roch: Possible September Call Ups

    I think once we reset the 40 man roster this winter, I do not think it will be that easy to write down 6 plus names we can drop at one time as listed above.

    John Andreoli Claimed from and by Seattle

    Just a small note: Joey will be 1st year arbitration going into 2019. If as some say they will cut payroll, I could see Joey traded this winter.

    Scott Boras is an Agent, as such I think he would do all possible to get every penny that his players (current and Future).

    Settlement: Between the 4 years at 17 mil and the 15 years of deferred money at a total payout of 42 mil, he is owed $110 mil over a combined 19 years. I do not think he and or Scott Boras will allow he to take less. Offer: 110 mil by 19 yrs = 5.789 mil per yr for 19 years. As a bonus I would offer 5.8 mil a yr. It would give him a xtra 200.000 over 19 yrs.

    LHP Sean Gilmartin coming up

    I think he was signed as a minor league f/a a month or so ago.

    What would it take to move Davis or Trumbo?

    I would look at these three options: 1. Play him at 3b/rf to try and build SOME value. 2. He is owed 110 mil after this season. However it breaks down to 4yrs x 17mil = 68 mil and 42 mil deferred over 15 yrs. Only look at the 68 mil for 4 yrs in trades. The O's eat the deferred money. 3. With everyone's Ok put hem on the DL and send him to a Sports Clinic for a full testing of everything. Nothing found, he is active after 10 days. If something found give him a 20 day rehap.
