  1. Thanks for the info. Zoellner with a tater! Wow!
  2. Less than 100 losses would be nice.
  3. If he's as good as advertised (I've watched him play numerous times and he is impressive) he'll be in the big leagues sooner rather than later.
  4. Yeesh. I give up also. Like talking to a brick wall. Good night all.
  5. I'm trusting that Elias is more knowledgeable than either of us when it comes to the international market. We'll just have to agree to disagree.
  6. Now you're talking about "overpaying" for that level of talent. Why? Just so we can say "look we signed a name"?
  7. The International Market is not that simple. Nothing at all like the June Draft. Relationships are sometimes years in the making. These kids are free agents and "it takes two to tango".
  8. Could very well be. Still, there's 10 days til season opener. More cuts yet to come. Maybe a waiver wire claim or three.
  9. I would think Elias & company will see if new (different) coaching and analytics can help him better harness his talent.
  10. Hard to argue with that list, though I'm sure some will.
  11. The O's rewarded Manny with a $100K bonus following his 2013 Platinum Glove award on top of his $519K base salary. They didn't have to do that. I think that showed at least a little "good faith" love. $100K may not sound like much in the present context, but for a 20 year old that's a lot of money.
  12. Really? Geez. Now go ahead and get your coveted last word on the subject. Promise I won't reply.
  13. Just making my point. Didn't mean to offend .
  14. Good point. But we do know what the service time rules are in the present. Keeping him in the minors for just a matter of weeks can give the organization an extra year of team control.
  15. O's won't sacrafice a year of service time on bringing Diaz north on the opening day 25-man roster. It would be foolish.
