    Speculation piece lists Bundy as a player that could be traded

    I agree that Scott is the only building block. No issue at all trading everyone else. Get young and athletic. I see the biggest issue being the organization uncertainty. Can you trust DD, Buck, Brady, or anyone right now?

    Orioles have interviewed Ned Colletti, and others

    What a mess. Angelos never learns. NEVER. May as well bring back Syd Thrift.

    Mount Rushmore for bad looks. Etchebarren, Phoebus, Brabender, Lowenstein Mount Rushmore for sidearmers. Hall, Frowirth, O’Day, need a 4th

    The Athletic: Buck Showalter's Job No Longer Secure

    This is what happens when the owner creates a situation where you have uncertainty everywhere in the organization. Everyone has checked out and only cares about themselves. This is Angelos at his finest.

    The next 6 weeks - trades better be coming

    If you look at the Angelos era we had a few good years under Gillick and a good period when Macphail transitioned to Buck and DD. But those good years seem like catching lightning in a bottle. To me, the good years never feel like they were driven by a strategy or plan. They seem to be more driven by luck. I get that luck is often an element of success but we seem dependent on it rather than having a quality plan. This is the definition of the Angelos era.

    Is Chris Davis turning in the worst season in MLB history?

    You simply can’t play him. He is having the worst major league season I have seen in my life. Move Mancini to 1B. Enough is enough.

    2018 MLB Draft Discussion

    I don’t get this thinking. It’s akin to paying three lousy pitchers 12m each rather than an ace 25m. I have no idea if our pick is good or bad, but if a guy we rate as a higher player wasn’t picked because of wanting more money later in the draft, I don’t like that approach. That’s how you end up with Miley, Ubaldo, and Tillman.

    How did they get this bad?

    I blame Angelos. The buck stops with him.
