    A Few Questions About Some Former Orioles

    Jones will get signed. He'll be a (semi)regular player in 2019 for a MLB team.

    Who Will Get Cut From The 40-Man By Opening Day?

    You can add an infielder.

    The Victor Victor Mesa/Sandy Gaston thread

    Juuust missed it. He's 147.

    There is no comparing Baltimore and Miami when it comes to a young Cuban kid. These are the dark times.

    The Rebuild Strategy

    We are at step 0: figuring out who the owner is going forward. I'm not convinced it's the sons. I think many in MLB hate Angelos. That person(s) has to find a GM, and together find a Manager, Coaches, Scouts, and other warehouse and MiLB personnel. Then they need to develop and implement an organization-wide plan for the Orioles and all minor league affiliates. International signings, Rule 5s, MiLB free agents, and preparing for the draft with #1 overall, are just the start of a massive and complete rebuild. 2019 is already 108 loses.

    Outside of an MLB-forced sale, I have exactly zero hope. Not that V2 is the next Trout necessarily, but he was a sign of a change in direction and now he's gone, there's no one left, and there is nothing except an inept Brady Anderson in the warehouse. I can't do another 14 years of excrement.

    Those three have not signed (to my knowledge) but it's pretty clear what's going on. While I still very much want the Orioles to sign V2 I don't see any real chance of it. So, there's all this money, and we use it to... do... what?

    So, now that these three are gone, is there anyone left to spend $6-7M on?

    The Victor Victor Mesa/Sandy Gaston thread

    No, but we're targeting all of them.

    The Victor Victor Mesa/Sandy Gaston thread

    Any idea when there might be a signing?
  11. Ripken

    The Victor Victor Mesa/Sandy Gaston thread

    We'll probably find a loophole that allows us to give the $6M to Mike Wright.

    Does V2 like crab? Having the workout in Miami doesn't help either.
  13. Ripken

    The Victor Victor Mesa/Sandy Gaston thread

    I give the Orioles a 10% chance.

    The guy with the biggest check.
  15. Bordick would probably be fine. Whomever is hired next won't be around by the time this team is good again. I just hate the notion that ex-Orioles should be what we are looking for. Not exactly a strong tradition these last 30 years.
