  1. GM Meetings

    Oh no, Derek Jeter has upset the great Scott Boras. The Ineffable Boras no longer has his cash outlet in Florida.
  2. GM Meetings

  3. O's interested in Tyler Chatwood

    -whew- Still, the article falls in line with so many other near-useless articles about "Orioles showing interest". I want to hear that they are in talks with him dammit!
  4. O's interested in Tyler Chatwood

    You would have targeted... or you would target? Past tense scares me.
  5. O's interested in Tyler Chatwood

    I expect him to pitch better because of his home/road splits: 2016 HOME: 303-375-497 (872), 6.12 ERA, 1.641 WHIP 2016 ROAD: 190-286-272 (559), 1.69 ERA, 1.113 WHIP 2017 HOME: 302-395-489 (884), 6.01 ERA, 1.678 WHIP 2017 ROAD: 200-299-396 (695), 3.49 ERA, 1.228 WHIP Camden Yards is just small in some areas with good wind action to carry fly balls out (thanks to that damn hotel). Coors Field is another animal. Chatwood has less movement on his pitches there. His walk rate is a concern, you are right, but his hit rate is way down away from Colorado. I should clarify that I don't expect Chatwood to be the frontline starter type. I expect him to fall in behind Bundy and Gausman. But he is no Wade Miley either.

    Yes please.
  7. Assume we don’t trade Manny and he walks

    Yes, I think the team will be bad for the next several years. Machado is only one player but he accounts for so many wins. Moreso, I don't think the team will be able to make other moves to compensate if he just walks. In other words, they don't have to stink, but they will.
  8. Good evening all. I am genuinely (mildly) surprised that the Cubs and Dodgers would still be interested in Britton at his price tag, after his season. Those of you who know me remember I've been advocating his trade for some time now. It still makes sense even though the golden opportunity for a big haul passed them by. They can still get something nice for him. I don't think it's a good idea to wait and see if he returns to domination this season. If he does, the Orioles will probably want to keep him and shoot for the playoffs. If he doesn't, he'll have next to no trade value.
  9. Heh - Duquette may have made his share of mistakes but at least he's a real GM
  10. Perusing the FA pitcher list...

    He just said "if the team isn't going to sell"... c'mon
  11. It's hard for me to blame Dan for wanting to go after a higher office position - however - the situation was handled very poorly and I don't see the need to retain the man that did that to his old organization. I wonder if Mr. Angelos would have let him go, and brought in another GM ASAP, how that off season would have gone. But asking him to do anything ASAP is a tall order. I am quite pissed at Toronto for "playing dirty" and am glad that they screwed up a good thing by trading half their farm system.
  12. He should throw himself under the bus for signing Jimenez and Gallardo and Miley and trading for Hellickson. I don't read that in the article.
  13. Perusing the FA pitcher list...

    If that's what the market is then so be it. I like the top five. Didn't realize Dickey was leaning retirement.
  14. Thank You, James Jerry Hardy

    Rich Dauer.
  15. Perusing the FA pitcher list...

    I didn't list him, but would absolutely make an offer.
