    Hyde: New O’s Manager

    Beat me to it. Kudos Maybe the good doctor will be bench coach or assist the trainer.

    Naughty By Nurture- From a Derailed Thread

    On a lighter note, probably the only song about cryogenesis (or at least the best) out there these days. And just a gorgeous tune. “By the time my head gets to Phoenix.”
  3. High school. Soph through senior years at Garner Sr. High (Garner NC). We won the 4-A state title in '78 at Crockett Park vs. one of the Charlotte teams. Crockett was where an O's AA farm team played. I've never seen an action photo from an actual game, though one may exist somewhere. Here I am in the batting cage in the gym preparing for the 1980 season. I was a 2nd baseman. Was from a newspaper article about the coming season.

    Matt Wieters

    There were times during Matt’s tenure that I often thought he may end up as a manager or at the very least, in the coaching field. But yeah, he won’t need the money and may feel the tug of being with his family in retirement and not being on the road. And I do see Caleb going into coaching, just not sure at what level would interest him.

    Elias' Brady comments (Connolly article)

    I guess one day we’ll know, if Angelos’ will is public knowledge when that time comes. Not trying to be morbid or flip (or anticipating Peter Angelos’ passing anytime soon). Just that people who are considered family are sometimes in one’s will.

    Britt Ghiroli Appreciation Thread

    I like Woody, but I think his best work was in The Faces. Consider this. The period spanning Taylor's era (Let It Bleed through It's Only Rock and Roll, ie '69 - '74) contains pretty much what's acknowledged to be the Stones golden era. Goats Head Soup and IORR had its moments, but I'm talking LIB through Exile on Main St. (Beggars Banquet for ''68 is included in that era, but Taylor joined mid '69). Their current day set list is heavily from the records from that six year span. Brian Jones was vastly underrated and under-appreciated not only by the public, but by his own band, but Mick Taylor was a breath of fresh air and it energized Keith. Ron is a great foil (better fit as one of the "lads") and a lot of fun for Keith, but he never challenged him the way Taylor did.

    Reminder - Elias Presser Today at 11 am

    i get the feeling Brady is restless and likes to flit around from task to task. One week he’s interested in helping with pitching, one week he’s giving advice on someone’s swing. Then the next week, getting someone on a training regimen. Those are his passions. Then when the ownership wants him to really do something useful, he’s needed to follow up with agents for potential contract negotiations. He’s a jack of all trades, master of none. Kind of like this sideburned guy. I think he was also a Double Naught Spy at one point. And part time King of Rock and Roll. Here he is getting a US Marshals / DEA badge from the Chief. Note. This guy was a master of one trade. He was a lousy drug marshall.

    Thanks, but two is plenty.

    Will Roch actually ask his questions?

    Roch: “What are your plans for Brady Anderson?” Elias: “Who?” Would be a nice comic moment.

    Elias & Mejdal - how excited are you?

    It's great news. I couldn't be happier. It's like a snake shedding its old skin.
  14. Probably just a regional link. I've seen it with other national reporting.
  15. London was amazing. Wish I’d had time to get to the Bowie site. Definitely planning more time to be there next time. We spent our time playing music in the western part of the England (got to Liverpool and saw all the Beatles related sites just guiding our taxi driver where to go - John & Paul’s childhood homes, Cavern, Strawberry Fields and Penny Lane). While in St. John’s Wood, we did get to Abbey Road, too. That’s my girls with me (drummer Lila age 11, bassist Ella age 16 and me).
