  1. I tried to put in a poll but the system here wouldn't allow me to do so. It kept telling me that I made unspecified errors and wouldn't allow me to fix it. So I am putting my choices here as thoigh it were a poll. Some of the choices are nonsensical or semi- nonsensical. But some are serious. Feel free to comment. 1. Draft promising prospects in the draft. 2. Spend oodles of money to sign 1 or 2 top drawer TOR free agents 3. Sign Ubaldo Jimenez. He isn't doing anything, he's cheap. And he'd provide veteran presence. 4. Put Chris Davis in the rotation. 5. Look in the Orioles minor league system and see if there are truly any promising young candidates. 6. Snoop around other teams' minor league systems. See if there are any good prospects and trade for them. 7. Get rid of Mike Elias and Brandon Hyde. Bring back Dan Duquette and Buck Showalter. 8. All of the above. 9. None of the sbove. So what does Orioles management do?
  2. Just one in the overall category: change up. Jamie Moyer. He had around 5 different speeds of change ups. His "fastball" was around 85 mph.
  3. Does anyone know what .Miguel Gonzalez is up to?
  4. Os win!! Wrong thread because CD hsd nothing to do with it. But Os WIN!!
  5. It seems that CD is hitting the ball toward LF. That's progress.
  6. Maybe this is s silly idea. But unless/until he turns it around, can Hyde have the pitchers hit and put in a DH for Davis?
  7. You know what he needs to do? Learn how to bunt along the 3rd base line. This isn't last year's team or teams from the Showalter/Duquette era where all they did was try and hit it out of the park. Davis needs to get with the current time. Bunt the ball, dash down to 1b. Steal 2b. And so forth.
  8. 1I LOVE this team! In some ways, they resemble the Go-Go Sox (white not red) from back in 1959 when I rooted for them back in Chicago where I grew up. They hit, they run, they steal bases, they pitch. And they even hit home runs once in a while. They're not going to have 4 game (so far) winning streaks all the time. But they are a hungry team that wants to win.
  9. I know that my plus membership was renewed for the coming year. And yes, I have been away for awhile. But baseball season is coming on.
  10. The best thing for Bud Norris was being demoted to the bullpen and then being released a bit later. After spending a few years in various teams' bullpens he became the St Louis Cardinals closer.
  11. I heard Dan on the radio that not giving either of these 2 guys 4 years was a "baseball" decision made by him . As for not signing international prospects, it was made quite clear that this was Peter Angelos "s decision.
  12. I haven't been much of a DD fan. I was mad when he refused to give Cruz and Markakis 4 year deals and let them walk. Then he turned around and gave my ol' buddy Ubaldo a 4 year deal. Then he gave us such gems as Travis Snyder and Gene Parra. As for Whiff Davis, my understanding is that this was mostly an ownership deal and DD can't be blamed for this one. But DD gave us some nice players. Zach Britton, Adam Jones, Chris Tillman (when he was good), and plenty of others (I'm getting old and my memory ain't what it used to be). We had some good years. Most of these guys are gone and we're going through a rebuild, which we need. Dan got us started.
  13. Sorry to see Buck go. He wasn't perfect, but he brought a winning culture to the Orioles. I don't know about anyone but I LIKE OUR GUY!!
