    Adam and Chris stuck in elevator last night

    That was easy. Can the Toronto Fire Department rescue them from the season-long funk they are stuck in?

    Manny’s farewell statement

    He may be saying all the right things, but he also said on arrival at the Dodgers that "It's a team sport. I'm just coming here to try to help the team however I can, whether it's defense, offense, third, short, wherever it is. I'm here to just play." It would have been nice if he had said this here too.

    Manny Machado Appreciation Thread

    Same thing could be said about the 1997 team, the 1983 team, etc. There's always going to be a next crop.

    Interesting comparison. I think Alomar was a more complete player, as least compared to MM right now.

    That throw is indeed jaw dropping. It makes me think he might have a future as a corner outfielder.
  7. Him not going to the Al East is a major, major plus. Please make sure you do whatever you can to make him feel very welcome in LA.
  8. I read somewhere that it would be the Phillies. If this is indeed done, it's a well-kept secret.

    vs. YANKEES, 7/10

    Even in a dark season like this there is a ray of light.

    Nick's an All Star

    At the time, I wasn't for resigning Markakis either, though he was one my favorite players. I didn't like to see him go at all, but I thought the Orioles would be a contender for the duration of his new contract and needed to upgrade the position. If I had known they would nothing to replace him and if I had envisioned the black hole that the O's RF would have become in his absence, there's no question I would be all for resigning him.

    You know what, screw this front office and ownership. They are notorious for kicking a guy when he's down. And then turn around and give $160 mil to a .150 hitter like Davis because he's friends with the owner.

    Just as no one expected Cruz to be this good, Davis to be this bad, O'Day to be this ineffective, etc. At some point it is not bad luck, it's gross incompetence. These people are paid well to "see" these kinds of things.

    Yup, more egg on the faces of this front office.

    Intervention by MLB

    This is extreme optimism. I have no faith that this current ownership can turn anything around. They don't even know who is in charge.
