  1. Really? McGregor wouldn't sniff the Majors in today's game? Oh boy!! What a statement!!
  2. I guess I was about 6 years old growing up in a very small town in Arkansas. One Saturday I was lying on the floor in front of the ol' black and white TV watching the Game of the Week on the TV. The announcer said (paraphrasing) "Now coming to bat for the Orioles is the pride of Little Rock, Arkansas--Brooks Robinson. At that moment Brooks became my sports hero and the Orioles beacame my team. Fifty plus years later and I'm still a die-hard O's fan and Brooks is still my hero. Happy Birthday Brooks!! A great ballplayer and even greater person. You've never disappointed me.
  3. 1. Brooks 2. Mike Schmidt 3. Adrian Beltre Manny Machado was sensational for a few seasons and only time will tell his rank among the all-time greats.
  4. I think (always questionable) that DJ has at the very least the upside of Rickard. As I posted previously it's time for the O's to find out what DJ can do at the Major League level. Rickard is not gonna be a part of the hopefully next O's playoff team. I say we put DJ in a COF spot and see what we have over a couple hundred plate appearances. If it means DFA'ing Rickard--so be it. Just my opinion.
  5. Now is not the time to give up on Nunez. He's in a slump right now. Happens to all hitters. Past performance says he's a decent bat. At the same time I'm ready to see Stewart at the MLB level for an extended look. Time for DJ to poop or get off the pot. He's 25 and a former 1st round pick. BTW, I'm a Stewart fan. Love his bulldog attitude.
  6. Could possibly skip him this time around. Limit his innings a bit.
  7. For heaven's sake please don't let the Orioles mess this up!! Don't try to get too cute. Take Rutschman 1-1. A generational catcher.
  8. I also gave up drinking soda pops a few years ago. I mainly drink tap water every day. A cup of coffee in the morning. My health has been better and I feel better. BTW, also lost a few pounds.
  9. Curious minds want to know. Where is the body buried?
  10. That sounds like a reasonable plan.
  11. Not concerned about his "stamina". He pitched 122.2 innings last year between college and rookie league. Barring any injury setbacks I think 140-150 innings this year is not unrealistic.
  12. Never really understood why a rebuilding Blue Jay's team DFA'd him. But, what do I know?
