  1. Sign him.

    I still think it's too risky to sign him to a long term deal. He has surgically repaired knees and I just don't trust that he can stay healthy ten years of playing.
  2. Prediction for The Last 40 Games

    I'm not sure what our record will be, but the only number that really matters is we are 2 games back. If we get even a little hot, we can take the second wild card. No one in the AL seems to want that second spot.
  3. The Wildcard Race

    As much as that series lost stung, if we can sweep the As we are right back in the thick of things. Hopefully we can sweep an AAAA team.
  4. Will you be disappointed of we don't trade Britton?

    You can't help but wonder if the trade deadline was tomorrow if tonight would have changed things.
  5. I was surprised to not see a thread on this pick-up. Am I missing something here? For giving up international money (something we don't use anyway) this seems like a solid pick-up. None of his stats look too bad and he's only 23. Thoughts? https://www.baseball-reference.com/register/player.fcgi?id=ramire000yef
  6. Deadline Deal Orioles Mega-Thread

    I wonder how this all effects Brach? If we don't deal Britton until right around the deadline would there be time to deal Brach?
  7. Deadline Deal Orioles Mega-Thread

    Sad to see Kim go but he wasn't getting playing time. I guess we bring up Santander to start his 90 days of service time?
  8. Deadline Deal Orioles Mega-Thread

    There isn't a cheaper option to help us get through the season? We better be giving up nothing except cash or a very-fringe minor leaguer.
  9. Deadline Deal Orioles Mega-Thread

    I hope these last two wins don't convince us not to sell. Starting pitching is still broken.
  10. Rosenthal: O's Preparing to Sell

    I'm 28 and can't stand how most websites post videos instead of articles now. I would rather read an article over watching a video any day.
  11. Most Tradeable Players

    I'm in favor of trading every piece possible. One thing the Orioles have been successful at is producing bullpen pieces. Givens, Brach, Hart, and Britton came in and performed out of nowhere. No reason we can't do it again. We need to get as many available potential starters as possible.
  12. Do We Sell?

    We need to hope Britton can come back from his injury and have a few good few outings to show he is healthy. We could get a mammoth haul for him.
  13. Do We Sell?

    Also, while I am in favor of selling this year, I did not feel this way in previous years. In 2013 and 2015 we still had a great bullpen and ok starting pitching. This year we simply don't. Can someone explain to me a scenario where we have a decent bullpen and starting pitching the rest of the year without giving up the farm?
  14. Do We Sell?

    I posted in another thread last night that the starting pitching is too inconsistent for us to contend. We need to sell. It's unfortunate that our two most valuable assets (Machado and Britton) aren't worth as much as they were this time a year ago. As others have pointed out, we have a ton of assets we could move and we could completely revamp for farm system with trades.
  15. This is not a bad stretch..this is who we are

    I really hope the team acknowledges the situation and sells at this point. We simply do not have the pitching staff to contend. We need multiple pieces in both the starting rotation and bullpen and we cannot get those pieces without giving our entire farm system up. If we bite the bullet and sell now, we could contend in a few years. If we don't sell, we could be looking at another 1998-2012 stretch. I hope I'm wrong and the team can turn it around, but you can't win games without pitching.
