  1. Decision Checklist for the Orioles

    Cmon Weams, they'd never leave Camden Yards unoccupied.
  2. I agree that we are about the same for the most part - Beckham putting up an .871 OPS again may be a stretch, but he's better than Hardy at this point in his career. Of course, as you conclude, the Orioles are still a last place team.
  3. SP Openings Across MLB

    If that were the case, they would have traded Machado by now.
  4. Decision Checklist for the Orioles

    Right, sure, but he's THEIR GUY! They didn't wanna trade one of their guys!
  5. One reason why the Orioles have not improved their rotation

    Dude... Mesa, Cortes, Wright, Lee, Castro, Ynoa.... we're LOADED.
  6. Slow Offseason around MLB

    Touche.Then it is a perfect representation of DD this offseason.
  7. Slow Offseason around MLB

    LOL. Accurate, though I don't know if DD is the type to wear a tie and short-sleeved shirt
  8. Curtis Granderson

    If the Orioles are purportedly looking for a left handed outfield bat, kind of a head scratcher they didn't go after Granderson for that price. Obviously, there may have been other factors at play, i.e. he didn't want to come ot Baltimore, etc., but still would have been a solid move for them if they are indeed seeking a lefty outfield bat.
  9. Slow Offseason around MLB

    Similar production? Greaaaaaaaaat. Similar production from last year's rotation sounds fantastic.
  10. So it's less than a Month.

    They already signed Chatwood.
  11. Os requesting offers on Machado

    Then why not do it last year when they acquired Beckham in the first place and Hardy was out? They played Tejada over Manny at SS before acquiring Beckham. To me it seems like Buck playing the loyalty game again.
  12. Os requesting offers on Machado

    Manny starting at SS makes no sense unless its a tactic to get him to resign here at a price the FO can afford.
  13. Os requesting offers on Machado

    I'd much prefer a Yankee package, if available, centered around Sheffield/Adams and Andujar.
  14. Os requesting offers on Machado

    Yeah, if Montgomery and Russell were purportedly offered for Manny, that's a trade you accept without thinking twice.
  15. Os requesting offers on Machado

    As many on here have said, if you have 8-12 teams making offers, as was widely reported, there are probably at least two or three packages that were good. Maybe not incredible, blow-away, strongly pro-Orioles offers, but good offers. If the Orioles were smart, they would accept the best one, get some controllable talent, and focus on the rest of the offseason. They are very much deserving of the criticism they receive on this board from Corn, myself, and others.
