  1. He's probably the Orioles' best all around player. He certainly plays with passion and effort.
  2. More worried about our relief pitching than our hitting. I believe with our aggressiveness and speed, we can come up with a few runs.
  3. Just believe there will be some improvement among the group (starters). Bundy needs to be more consistent and stay out of the middle of the plate. Karns "could" be a nice addition (build up his innings). Another year for Hess should help him develop further. Cobb should be solid and Cashner will eat up innings.
  4. 61-101 Overall starting pitching can't get much worse than last season. Davis improves slightly. Overall defense better. We bring up some guys mid-season that will make a difference.
  5. If anyone is on the fence about heading down, you owe it to yourself to head that way. The wife & I have gone 5 out the last 6 years and we would rather be in that climate & environment over a trip to Baltimore. It's such a nice, laid back & enjoyable adventure and the whole area is simply fantastic. We stay on Siesta Key Island (the Village area), which has some of the best beaches in the U.S. and nice places to eat & drink. In the past 6 years MLB spring Training in that area has flourished, which is great, but the downfall is ticket prices have moved up a bit. Still, (other than the Yankees - usually sold out), you can almost always find a good seat and hopefully some shaded areas. We have met others from the Maryland area and have become friends with many. We now plan our trips together to rendezvous in Sarasota and plan out the week. Roll Tide & Go O's!
  6. One of the best logos in sports. I like the angry bird (left) as well.
  7. Happy belated birthday Weams!
  8. Roy. Thank you for this. Certainly a couple of my heros growing up. I can't imagine the hurt Frank felt dealing with all the racism, but I'm sure glad Brooks was there for him when he needed it. It sure sounds like they had a very special relationship. RIP Frank Robinson!
  9. What a player. What an idol. What a man. What great memories. RIP #20! Prayers for his family, his friends, my fellow Oriole and MLB fans.
  10. Good to see some positive news for the Orioles. He deserves the nod too. Congratulations Ryan.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
