    Thoughts About Tonights 2nd Game With Boston

    Do you want to win games the rest of the season, or want that #1 draft pick? Personally, I want that pick. Whether they lose 95 or 110 games makes absolutely no difference to me at this point.

    Zach Britton Appreciation Thread

    Ok, but one of those two things is not an official statistic.

    Mullins is with the Orioles! (edited)

    It’s been said already, but kudos to Jones for not just moving to RF for Mullins, but also seeming so cool about it. I would guess it hurt him a little tiny bit. He handled it with absolute class.

    Players Weekend Nicknames

    I’m not allowed to see the list (the Sun and all Tribune papers don’t allow readers of their sites in Europe). Any other good ones? Did Trumbo stick with Trumbo again, or is he going with Two Pies?

    What would it take to move Davis or Trumbo?

    So if the Orioles could sign Victor Victor and then package him in a deal together with Davis and Bundy, would you do it?

    How many games will the Orioles win the rest of the year?

    One thing to keep in mind is that if they finish the season with the same record as the Royals (we're dead even right now), the Orioles still get the #1 draft pick, since they had a worse record than KC last year.

    Are You Happy

    It’s been such a busy, crazy werk that it’s hard to fully wrap my head around. Duquette was saying all the right things recently, but the team had a (well-deserved) reputation of being slow and difficult so it was tough to tell if he was just trying to seduce us with his boardroom eyes. But then it all went down so quickly that we’re still sorting through the rubble. It’s always hard when you lose some of your favorite players, especially a number of them all at once. But this team overspent and it backfired badly, we had a disastrous minor league system, and there was no hope of contending for the next few years. Or even beyond that, if nothing drastic had changed. So they tore it down (and might not be done yet), we get a slew of young players, and perhaps more importantly, it looks like the shackles might be off our FO guys. I’m excited for the future. And while there won’t be anything worthwhile happening on the field this year, at least the NL postseason race just got a lot more interesting to watch.

    Beckham's move to SS

    And the team is playing .444 ball since Manny left — nearly a 50% improvement. So clearly jettisoning Manny was the catalyst this team needed. Grief rakes, apparently.
  9. AJ has the right to decide if he finishes out the year with the club or not. I’m not one for denying anyone their rights, especially if he earned it while being the face of the franchise and a valuable member of the community over the past decade. As @Dark Helmet said above, the potential return (an AAAA player?) isn’t worth fretting about. We’re not talking Lux or Rodgers here. For years it seemed like so few FA candidates wanted to wear an Orioles uniform. How can we get upset if #10 decides he wants to wear his for a few extra months?
  10. We’re also replacing Boog’s with Beltre’s Barbeque.

    30 wins or August 1?

    I’m still hoping KC catches a hot streak. They’re doing their best to grab that #1 pick, but we’re still 2.5 games “up” on them.

    $20 Bucks says Gentry is traded in August

    On the other hand, I also dreamt last night that the Orioles traded Trumbo for a AAA prospect. Woke up disappointed.

    $20 Bucks says Gentry is traded in August

    I’ll take that bet. $20 to the charity of the winner’s choice? There are plenty more options out there for contending teams to pick up, some of whom can actually hit.

    Peter Angelos health status

    You were perfectly respectful. I'm the same, let him live another 10 years if he's enjoying it, let him see the team burn down and rebuild... hell, give him a ring before he's gone. If the sons run the team the way the talk has gone the last few days, then great, but regardless I wish Peter no ill will.
  15. I'm quite happy with the return we got. And I hope Manny helps them win some ballgames for the rest of the year, I'll miss seeing him in orange. I also just realized that Max Muncy wears #13 for Los Angeles. Wonder if he'll give up the number for Manny. I think Muncy is only earning the MLB minimum, so maybe he can swing a Rolex out of the deal, Machado surely has a few of those to spare.
