    Why (and When) did You Become an Oriole Fan ???

    Born and raised in North Alabama and became an avid Orioles fan because of television. The supreme success of the Orioles in the late 60s and 70's put them on the tube constantly. As a young sports fanatic I played everything available and watched everything related. Saturday baseball became Orioles baseball. Never forget seeing the a depiction of the Oriole Bird crying up behind Walter Cronkite when they lost the World Series in 69. Then the joys of beating the Reds in 70, then the letdown to the Pirates in 71. Still the Orioles were the team to hate for others because of their success. Been a diehard ever since. Been to Baltimore 6 or 7 times to OPCY and Memorial Stadium and annually head to Sarasota every spring. Looking forward to 2019.

    What Will Make this Season a Win?

    Really hard to come up anything as it has been one dreadful season. With Adam leaving and probably Buck headed out, that doesn't help. Would like to see a good young, aggressive, smart Head of Baseball Operation person be give free reign to rebuild the Orioles.
  3. Always felt Buck was a very good manager, but the Orioles need to move on to someone who can relate to younger players and someone we can build with. I look forward some new coaches. Players whom have had potential here and then prospered elsewhere have been far to many.

    An Early Look at the 2019 Draft

    ... who are the most likely candidates?

    "Buck" naked woman strolling around OPCY?

    At least there was some "quality" entertainment demonstrated in the park.

    Coaching Staff

    I look at it like it's a lack of respect for the fans (whom deserve better) and a total lack of accountability on the coaches who are responsible for the player's performances. Why should anyone pay good money to watch a team where the organization seemingly does not care?

    Bucks recent comments

    We can only hope he re-evaluates his hitting & pitching coaches if he stays. Changes are needed.

    Can we over do the rebuild?

    If they were going to try and extend Schoop you would have thought they would have at least approach him to gauge his interest. He's stated multiple times that they never have.

    Not very impressed with him either. Both need to be replaced.

    Rebuild: Keep One

    Schoop. Extend him. Build with him.

    Predictions for 2018 Season

    Hard to argue. There will be a surprise team along the way. Bama Clemson Ohio state Surprise team

    LAST.

    ... and yet we do nothing to try and improve. Coolbaugh should have been history months ago.

    Mike Wright, Jr. as a starter

    I was down in Sarasota on his last start and hoping to see a new Mike Wright. Did not see that in the least. He consistently fell behind batters and was hit hard giving up 8 hits in 4 innings, which included a balk with runners on 1st & 2nd and moved them into scoring position. The next batter gets a triple which basically did him & the Orioles in. He once again seemed to lose his composure a bit in a tight situation. We've all seen it before and was hoping for a different result this time around. We need to come up with a better option IMO.
  15. Ole Miss IMO got off pretty light in the long run. The post season ban for the 2018 season will hurt, but to lose only 3 additional scholarships is pretty light for what they were accused. What floors me is the head of the enforcement committee said that he was flabbergasted that they actually found instances that Ole Miss continued to break numerous rules even knowing they were under investigation.
