    Sun: Ripken files suit against Aberdeen

    That's a political issue. Can't talk about that here....correct? In all seriousness, the people were led to believe it would benefit the town...by BOTH parties. It didnt.

    Sun: Ripken files suit against Aberdeen

    You can't sue for a broken promise without a contract. Aberdeen negotiated under good faith with Cal "the hometown hero" not Cal "the businessman" Yes that's on them. Again...broken promises on both sides. I never said the town wasn't at fault. But Cal us far from innocent in this, and to sue is classless on his part. Cal has been trying to get out of this deal for years. It has nothing to do with maintenance issues. And the fact that a stadium isn't allowed to be used for many other non baseball activities is a joke. It could bring much needed funds to the town. Ripken would never give on that, and unfortunately he had the town by the throats.

    Well that answers my question.

    The Victor Victor Mesa/Sandy Gaston thread

    It wasn't an absolute. Can you for sure say Gaston wouldn't be a top pick out of high school throwing a 100mph but needing work on secondary pitches? Isn't that what minor league coaches are for?

    You can't disprove or prove a hypothetical either way. Which is all it was.

    Again.. doesn't affect me one way or another. My wife says I'm stubborn. So I usually don't back off my opinion.

    Was wondering how long it take you for the personal attack. You didn't disappoint atleast. Unless I read it wrong.

    Not what each individual player is demanding we don't. And it's not like the Marlins HAVE to use the acquired pool money. Could be a juat in case. Who cares at this point. The Orioles probably get none of the three.

    You have no clue how he would do. Maybe a HS coach shows him another pitch. If it's bugging you repeating yourself...stop wasting your time.

    Well, the $4m they had wasn't going to do it. So what's your point?

    Under my scenario, he wouldn't need to crack the international list. But ok.

    Never assumed anything. I said why should he hide it if he did, since the national media doesn't hide theirs. My comment kinda suggested what you just said.

    Did you grow up in Aberdeen? I did. Many promises made by both sides have gone on to be broken. Keep worshiping Saint Cal though.

    I wasn't using the international market as a comparison. If Gaston is a 17 year old mowing down high school hitters, he's going to get noticed....see Dylan Bundy.

    The Victor Victor Mesa/Sandy Gaston thread

    Ummm because the Marlins are still interested in the Mesa brothers AND Gaston. And all three are interested in going to Miami. Why is that so hard to understand? Again, we have ZERO clue what salary figures anyone is asking for. So your hypothetical is pointless. We don't know how much if any money these players will have to leave on the table. I used to think it was just veterans you didn't want the Orioles to spend on. Seems you just don't want the Orioles spending period.
