    Marlins Add Even More Mesa $

    I understand there's an expiration on the slot money. But, the O's are definitely going to sign someone with the money, right? Even if it's not a premium level guy, I'd really like for them to at least use it, even on random international players if necessary.

    Yeah I understand that. Perhaps I misunderstood as I thought they were dumping Gausman's salary as well. Point being is that I don't personally think it's worth it. I guess the O's do...

    So hypothetically, they could end up not using the money and some of these trades were just salary dumps? I didn't think Gausman or O'day or some of the others ate up enough salary to be worth dumping.

    I know only a small amount about international signings. What happens if the O's miss out on Mesa? Does their international slot money have an expiration date? Or can they save it up for the next valuable guy say next year or the year after?

    Sun: Ripken files suit against Aberdeen

    I see it like Jordan. Jordan was arguably the best basketball player of all time, but he left a lot to be desired in making executive decisions. A lot of times being a great player makes it hard to be a great personnel guy or owner. With a few exceptions here or there.

    The Orioles biggest problem is....Baltimore

    I mean, my wife is from Yemen. So...no. We're not generally phased by traveling to Baltimore, MD.

    Why (and When) did You Become an Oriole Fan ???

    Even though I was born and raised in Northern Va, both my parents are from the Baltimore area and were O's fans. My mom actually got kicked out of the 1983 parade for jumping on stage and trying to convince Tippy Martinez to give her his hat. So I pretty much grew up rooting for the O's. Some of my fondest memories are firing up the old SNES and playing Ken Griffey Jr. Presents Major League Baseball and playing the World Series as the Orioles back when I was a kid. Then my brother and I world go outside and play home run derby. Great times.

    Loverro: The Orioles could be sold this winter

    I highly doubt they'll be sold this winter. That's a short timetable, especially when the current owner is still living. As for Angelos' time as owner, I think you'd be hard pressed to say it was anything other than a massive failure. 5 playoff appearances in 25 years, and no world series appearances in that time. Despite the fact that 22 franchises managed to get to one in that span. Terrible.

    Bundy is Broken

    I don't know, it works well enough for me. Some glitches here and there but otherwise fine. I tried MLB The Show a few times, wasn't a fan.

    Bundy is Broken

    In my ongoing MLB 2k10 (currently in the 2017 season) franchise, he's started the season with 4 straight complete game shutouts, the last of which was a perfect game.

    You're in charge: What would you do with Chris Davis?

    Especially if you're getting it all up front. The difference can be made up with some kind of managed investment account with any number of well known firms fairly easily.

    Good call. I can't remember, was the bowl game in January 07 or December 06?
  14. Mondo Trasho


    I was there too. Even though it's not exactly the same, I always referred to that play as the "status of Liberty" play. Just because it made me think of the 2007 Boise State team.

    When will the O's return to the playoffs?

    Yeah I think when he was with the Saints that's when he said the "diddly poo" line.
