  1. Only two more weeks...

  2. Os requesting offers on Machado

    The Orioles had the 10th highest payroll last year. 15 to 20 teams wish their owner was that cheap.

    I see Friday as a big day. Teams will basically close down for the holidays Friday. In January teams will need to start focusing on improving with or without Manny. I hope the Orioles see Friday as a quasi deadline but I doubt it.

    Quick Nats fact, since coming into existence they have made a trade with every team but one. Manny in not heading south on the Parkway.

    Almost every year they win a division in which the other 4 teams finish below 500. It’s easy to look like a powerful when you play powderpuffs.
  6. Matt Moore any one. From MLB trade rumors.... The Giants are nearing a significant swap that will open up payroll space, according to John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle (via Twitter). The pact will involve either or both of lefty Matt Moore and outfielder Hunter Pence. Details of the arrangement — including the prospective trade partner — aren’t yet known. But Shea says a deal is in place pending physicals, so it certainly appears that a move of some kind is imminent.

    This saga will drag out until July 31.
  8. Rule 5 Draft Preference List

    Story sounds a little like when they drafted Jason Garcia.
  9. I agree with this. There seems to be a certain tolerance level with the physical. They have reduced and tried to reduce the length of contracts based on the physical. They don’t always just walk away. I would think a contrast of one year $6 mill is in the wheelhouse if the players going to the Mets are reasonable in the Orioles eyes. I would also think Brach or Givens is too much with the risk.

    I find it hard to believe DD would contact the Yankees with one of his first callls on Manny. I don't see DD sending him to a division rival. You don’t keep an elite players in the division. In theory, he could be doing it to drive up the price but that doesn’t hold water for me. I believe the Yankees may have checked in on the availability. Just my opinion.
  11. The #11 Pick in 2018 draft

    I believe that it will be 3 of the top 55 or so picks. We will get a pick between the first and second round. Under the new collective-bargaining agreement the pick rotates between a post first round and a post second round pick every year. Last year we were after the second round so this year it will be after the first round.
  12. 2018 draft order tracker/reverse standings

    We should have a first round competitive balance pick this year. Last year we had a second rounder so this year it flips to a first rounder. This will give us 3 of the top 50 or so picks. This is a competitive balance pick for small market teams. It has nothing to do with free agents.
  13. Unwritten rules of baseball

    Buck plays by one rule....you play to win the game. Buck always gives vets the benefit of the doubt but there comes a point when you play to win the game. Love JJ but his days as productive every day player (on a playoff contender) are done.
  14. Duquette Future

    I see either Brady Anderson or Buck as the successor. I would be surprised if it wasn't one of them. I prefer DD.
  15. The Astros were irritated enough to throw the Orioles under the bus but not irritated enough to leak the package. That says to me the package would make them look bad.
