    Fantasy GM - Can You Make the Os Competitive in 2019?

    You can almost build an entire team of former Orioles on that list. Not a good team, but a team.
  2. Would've been another great 'new era of the Orioles' feel if they did that. Whether we like it or not, we need to view the Nats more as a friend than an enemy. Not on the field but as a geographical partner and as promoters of baseball in this area. I think it was a shame that the Orioles called them on this and now even more so that we aren't even going to do anything with it.

    Week 17 vs. Browns

    I'm loving the wins but in no way am I a believer of Lamar. And in no way do I think we are truly better off with him over Joe. But we keep winning so it's hard to argue right now.

    New manager

    Come on, where's Ozzie Guillen?! 😂

    Show Mike your support by going to FanFest

    I'll be there. To me, call me crazy that is fine, but I actually look forward to this year's fanfest even more than prior years. I feel re-energized and refreshed with our recent activity. I don't expect us to be very competitive this year but I think it is going to be a fun time to be an Orioles fan (the next 5-10 years, fingers crossed). I don't really care how good we are I always try to make fanfest, its a fun day to be around other Orioles fans. But I do know success is a big reason for attendance year after year for others. I follow our minor league system more than most people (at least outside of here 😂) so I love even just seeing faces to match to names in box scores that I follow. And I look forward to the press conferences with our new management.

    2019 Terps

    This team is young but it is a little different than the past few. Jalen is legit. If Bruno can stay out of foul trouble tomorrow night, I think we have a shot against UVA. I don't expect us to win but it's a good early test to see what we have. I hope to at least see us be competitive and Xfinity rocking. Wish I could go. I don't think Turgeon can develop talent either, as he's proven, but I'm still pretty excited by this team. UVA defense will give us a lot of trouble but maybe we can hang around. Maybe we can get some tips from UMBC 😂

    Josh Donaldson or Mike Moustakas?

    Donaldson got 1/23 from Atlanta, I'm glad it wasn't us. Just no reason for it.

    Ravens Acquire Ty Montgomery

    He was a solid playmaker at Stanford. Thought he would be a pretty NFL player when he entered the draft. I haven't seen much of him in the NFL but he's a guy that can play a Woodhead/Sproles type receiving back, which we need. Woodhead fit well when he was actually healthy. He can also make some plays from the slot. I don't expect much in the actual running game from him, especially behind this line. But not a bad flier for a 7th rounder. This could be a nice under-the-radar pick up when we look back. Or it could end up being nothing. Either way, I'm fine with it.

    Week 8 @ Carolina

    Can't see us beating the Chiefs or Chargers on the road, so there's 2 losses already, IMO, before you even look at the other 6. Not good.

    Adam/Cal's old house? 😁

    The Victor Victor Mesa/Sandy Gaston thread

    I feel like Miami has a terrible reputation for crime too. I doubt crime has popped into the heads of the Mesas very little if at all anyway, honestly.

    Live attendance for all sports is becoming an issue.

    How to make baseball more interesting

    FIFA video game is definitely a big factor for youth and the growing of soccer in the US. For me personally, I was not a soccer fan at all growing up. Became a big FIFA player in college. Now am a pretty big Liverpool and soccer fan in general, it is actually one of my favorite sports to watch now. I prefer it over american football, something that I would've hysterically laughed at you about if you told me I would say that 10 years ago.
  14. That would be embarrassing but I agree

    The Victor Victor Mesa/Sandy Gaston thread

    Would that really be that awful though? Chris Davis contract is a nightmare, spending money thats already allocated to international players and then applying it to one that doesn't work out really doesn't seem that bad.
