    International Signing Alexander Ayala

    This team is going to have more fliers on it than a telephone pole.
  2. I really like the Brice pickup.
  3. Let Hyde do whatever he wants, hire and fire who he wants. Carte blanche. That's an old Japanese phrase meaning "this organization has been a dumpster fire and if Brandon Hyde wants Dave Trembley to do anything, that's his prerogative, and the dopes who've otherwise crashed this plane should get out of his way without quarrel." It's a very difficult and unusual translation.
  4. This franchise is a dumpster fire.

    Ex-Orioles in the postseason

    Really great for Machado to make a cool bunt play and then immediately remind people he's a huge jerkoff. He's going to be a perfect Yankee.

    I don't understand what Manny was trying to accomplish when he did that.

    Top President / EVP Candidates?

    Because of the dysfunctionality? I can see that, but we have always been pretty dysfunctional, yet Duquette caught the wave at the right time and got interest in a much sweeter gig with the Jays. If his contract was up he would surely have taken it. So for people like Ng or whoever, there's a lot of upside to taking this position and making something, anything out of it. It means the next time there's a better open job, you're almost always an automatic candidate with an inside track by virtue of being a former GM. And if she is here for a few years and we still suck pretty bad, everyone will understand it probably had more to do with us being a circus than her talents. I think she would be evaluated fairly.

    Behind the Curve with Analytics?

    Ladies and gentlemen, meet your new Vice-General President Manager of Baseball Operations. As the new VGPMBO, Abacus Mikey will report directly to Brady Anderson.

    That's nice and everything but what's his time to the plate?

    Ex-Orioles in the postseason

    I was at the game where he got hit by two batted balls in a row in the 1st inning. He was OK so it was pretty funny. Some goofass disaster BS always happens when I go to a game, like 30-3, or Steve Kline raging out at an umpire. At least this time some no name reliever came in and threw like 6 shutout innings after he left.

    Sun: Ripken files suit against Aberdeen

    What do you mean? He said "Sorry Brooksie." For me the worst part of that series was when Teixiera made an error and he went on for minutes about how it wasn't his fault, there was a subtle spin to the ball, oh it must be how the grass was cut and blah blah blah. Meanwhile the replay showed Teixiera just missing an easily playable ball. He was an obnoxious jackass the entire series.

    Britton on the use of analytics in New York vs. Baltimore

    Seems like a better approach than the GM being a puppet for the manager and his favorite players. I guess it depends on the approach of the puppeteer though.

    The Inevitable national outlet Chris Davis article.

    Yeah, I think you're right. But enough to walk away from another 8 or 9 figures or whatever's left on the deal? I'm really doubtful.

    It would be pretty Orioles-y if they just wasted all of this pool money.
