  1. This is likely the remaining seed of doubt for most people here. Elias is likely only as good as the control he really has over all baseball decisions, including onerous contracts. That starts with Davis. If Elias makes a decision (after two to three months) to cut bait on Davis, then I’ll be convinced he has total control.
  2. I can scarcely remember you becoming so passionate about any other subjects. And I agree wholeheartedly.
  3. I was All-City at 2B in ‘82 (hit .418 and made no errors defensively) along with Bret Saberhagen who I doubled off in league play. Two years of JuCo where Paul Blair III was a teammate (yes, that guy’s son) as a CF (All conference.372). Recruited by Texas A & M but wound up at D2 San Francisco State because of family issues. All-conference again and then offered a roster spot ($600 a month and all the bus rides a guy could want) for one of my HS area scouts first rookie league team with the Tigers. Played a couple years in MABL after that winning a city championship. Scouted briefly for the A’s and coached HS ball.

    The Brothers Angelos is apropos. Sounds like a circus act.

    Not a stretch.

    3 @ NYY, 3 @ BOS, 4 v HOU.... How many wins?

    I’m always happy to be wrong if it means more wins for the Orioles.

    Top Manager Candidates

    Dickerson would be the one guy they currently have who I’d keep. But I’d like a clause in a new deal that keeps him in the organization in some capacity if they decide to go with someone else later.

    50 games left - call the record

    On the bright side, even if they lose out they can only have 117 losses. 🤨

    Will Chris Davis make it to 502 PA?

    Diminishing skills. He might change the weight of the bat, but from what I’ve seen he’s not changing anything. His bat speed isn’t magically going to improve even if he works at it. And guys with a plus speed tool slow down with age and Davis was never that.

    Davis isn’t improving his bat speed or foot speed at this stage.
