  1. If this is going to be the rotation, we are going to be noncompetitive, imho.

    Terps ranked #19!

    Let's see if we can pull off the big upset in East Lansing tonight...that would get us significantly up there in the top 10.

    Anyone Following Manny?

    Competetive instincts at times are not necessarily rational..And they apply to making the most money as well as hitting a ball better than the other guy.

    Anyone Following Manny?

    According to Samson, the only issue is money compared to locale, organization, etc. . Maybe he is wrong.

    Anyone Following Manny?

    They have a little less leverage than Mike Trout.

    Established MLB stars going into their extension or free agency period is who he was talking about.

    Anyone Following Manny?

    Interesting article in the Athletic about Mike Trout....and how deals of Manny and Harper affect his extension contract. I liked this quote from David Sampson President of the Marlins who signed Giancarlo Stanton...he was talking about what influence things like being with a winner, the town itself, the other variables affect the decision making... “Yeah, 99.9 percent of players don’t give one s**t about that,” Samson said. “They just don’t. We all prepare information, talk to free agents, talk to our own players, show them our minor-league system, show them our spring training facility, show them the home locker room, get them all excited and put their name on the Jumbotron and take their families out to dinner. It comes down to money. That’s it.”

    Doug Brocail is the Pitching Coach

    He was alright. But I am a Bamby fan!

    The last pitching coach I liked was George Bamberger.

    Welcome to birdland Don Long! New Orioles hitting coach

    Don Long was the hitting coach in Pittsburgh when John Russell managed there 2008-2010. And had been the hitting coach under Russell in 2007 when both were at Phillies AAA affiliate. Maybe this says more about Russell’s situation.

    Which ex-Oriole would you have coach a current Oriole?

    Boog Powell could coach Trey Mancini on how to play left field as if you were waiting to play first base.
  15. I just think ME wants someone that he can mentor in that slot, like Luhnow did for him...and that person is either not available or not found yet.
