  1. I agree that Rick is probably in the minority for that. Every fan, every person watching that game, knew that putting Britton in was the right call. Buck's stubborn unwillingness to pitch his closer in a tie game was costly.

    Marlins Add Even More Mesa $

    Fair enough. I may still be operating under the package deal assumption.

    Marlins Add Even More Mesa $

    Perhaps, but that doesn't address my point that the Orioles should offer VVM the entire amount (or less if he wants some of it to go to his brother) and see what happens. And like you said, I think they do have something to lose since the stupid Gausman trade was, to many of us, only somewhat forgivable because of the slot $$.

    Marlins Add Even More Mesa $

    Agreed.

    Marlins Add Even More Mesa $

    Could and should. Make him say no to the entire allotment.

    Top President Candidates?

    Who knows? But someone will inevitably be that first team to take a chance on her. The Orioles have nothing to lose.

    Top President Candidates?

    I would be absolutely thrilled if the Orioles hired Ng. Colletti - not so much.

    The Victor Victor Mesa/Sandy Gaston thread

    I don't see how that happens unless they either 1) accept significantly less money or 2) the Orioles stupidly don't offer a significant amount more (or more in general) than Miami.

    The Victor Victor Mesa/Sandy Gaston thread

    If it takes $5M to sign both Mesas, you spend $5M to sign both Mesas. Case closed.

    The Victor Victor Mesa/Sandy Gaston thread

    I don't think he'll be a superstar, but I wouldn't say the odds are great that he is just a minor leaguer. That's just not accurate.

    Make VVM turn down the maximum amount you can offer while still signing his brother. If he still signs with Miami, more power to him. In other words, don't "Oriole" this.

    The Dan Duquette Appreciation Thread

    Oh I'm glad we didn't sign him for what the Cardinals signed him for. But having a good Fowler in 16 and 17 and stomaching a bad Fowler this year would have been good (for the purported 3 years 39)

    The Dan Duquette Appreciation Thread

    He signed Dontrelle Willis in 2012 and I recall him making some bad appearances in Spring training. Chris Parmalee. Johan Santana. Dexter Fo.... oh wait.

    Luis Ayala. Nick Johnson. Randy Wolf. There were some interesting people on that team. Freddy Garcia was an Oriole too during DD's tenure.

    Duquette is expected to be fired

    Okay, I'm hopeful. Let's see what they can do to actually turn this thing around. I do wish we could have seen what DD was capable of with autonomy though.
