  1. Wow didn't realize that close to locking up Manny.. O's ownership pathetic. Did the same with Cruz.. right? I think he just wanted 4 yr deal & O's wouldn't come off 3 yr.. Cruz is well into his 30s too but he excelled & Davis stands there looking then just busy going to the bank.. whole different attitude to the game & maybe a better manager @ motivating players.. mmmm Buck???
  2. Ok ok .. not Gentry .. maybe just thinking of speed.. & I know not as many @ bats but hell of a better average than Davis or Trumbo .. puts bat on ball better than just looking @ strike 3 90% of the time.
  3. I don't think O's will have a choice if Manny goes.. & why wouldn't he? O's certainly not serious about WS championship...clear by the lack of interest in good pitching & clear organization not willing to spend money on building a championship ..they have been burnt by Davis's complete bust. Went on a limb for Ubaldo another bust.. Trumbo not much better. So why should these players stick around.. There is no clutch or playing inspired ball.. what about Buck getting the boot? Should build around Schoop, Mancini, Beckmann, Gentry, Smith, Gausman & Bundy.. this Hays kid looks good.. can't be much worst than what's happing on the field now...
  4. vs. YANKEES, 9/17

    Someone asked if anyone was alive out there... answer: Everyone but the O's!! Goodbye 2017 season. Mediocrity again and as far as any knowledgeable fan knows for the seeable future. O's org has no intentions to do anything about pathetic pitching. Run Manny, Run Johnathon Run Tray.. Davis runnng to the bank.. what a bust!
  5. So what's the rotation next year?

    Amen to pitching.. this the most needed and seems most neglected. Instead O's still in Earl Weaver philosophy.. wait for the 3 run homer.. unfortunately how often are there two runners on in front of the K kings? Case in point last night's game bases loaded 0 outs.. inning over no runs. Everyone swinging for the fences.. a lot of solo HRs a lot of losses. Mediocre team and it shows in no playoffs this year
  6. Angelos hasn't listen to anyone that has input towards building a WS championship. Why would anyone own a team without that goal? Someone said O's org is trying.. & where would that be? So many chances to acquire a veteran pitcher. Do you know what that would do for this team. They were not even mentioned in the mix the past couple years when Chris Sale was available or Verlander or Price or Cueto or Greinke or Scherzer or Gray. Never offered a penny to help this time. They let go Arrieta & Miller..O's reak of bad choices and no interest in WS They acquire rocks cuz they're cheap hoping for gems! They were one series away from WS then they let Cruz goe & sign Davis that has been a total BUST all he cares about is making sure his pay check hits.
  7. Oooh didn't realize that old.. but still true today.. sigh very sad!!
  8. The oriole owners have no intention of putting together a World Series team. The organization constantly grabs rocks in hopes of finding gems.. hasn't worked for last 34 years. Some years just competitive enough to generate excitement, hope & interest to put butts in the seats & $$$. Pitching is pathetic, hitting is anemic with K king Davis.. can't even put a ball in play. I would bet he has had 2 games that he made a positive impact. What a bust & Trumbo right there with him. Dump Davis, Jimenez & Tillman, get some contact hitters & quality pitching.. but that would cost money and that's not going to happen.. so expect another 34 yrs of mediocrity. If your an O's fan watch baseball for the love of the game certainly won't be watching a winner.
  9. It all begins with decent starting pitching

    Right.. for 34 yrs the O's haven't come up with the answer. A few years ago they were one series away from the WS. So the next yr they just needed a veteran pitcher. Didn't do it.. not only didn't do it they let go a priemier hitter in Cruz go. Spiral down since then. Davis is a total bust unless you like no clutch hitting & sure strike outs. Talk about a rally killer. Now when your up or down by 10 runs Davis is right in the mix. So lousy pitching and anemic hitting at times keeps O's a mediocre team. But it seems to keep the ownership happy so it will stay just like it is... don't hold your breath for them to spend any money for pitching.. they hope for career years from several plays to come together. It may happen once in the next 34 yrs and counting
  10. Losing Matt Wieters?

    Ownership doesn't understand baseball is all about pitching.. let me rephrase that Winning baseball is all about pitching. The tight purse strings won't let GM do his job.. so O's have the worst era & must score 9 runs a game most of the time to win a game. The philosophy of HR or bust is working in the bust favor.. Red Sox are in 1st & are near the bottom in HR stat.. WAKE UP O''s!!
  11. Can Bleier become a starter?

    Rangers must really feel like crap... beat by the worse pitching staff in the American League
  12. Release Ubaldo Now

    & let's talk about another bust.. Davis!! Honestly once in a blue moon clutch hit.. 99% of his at bats have no positive impact on the game.. K King!! Doesn't even put the ball in play to make something happen other then hit into double plays. Eat the mistake move on like the Red Sox did with Sandaval. The O's HR or nothing phylososphy sucks.. wake up it's been nothing! Red Sox are 27th in HRs and are in 1st place.. what does that tell you??
  13. Rosenthal: O's Preparing to Sell

    Ownership needs to wake up its all about pitching..look at the ASG..all those great hitters and ony 3 runs total. DUMP Jimenez, Miley & Tillman. Send Gausman & Bundy back to AAA. Buy some established free agents. Ownership won't as long as butts are in the seats as his past weekend with Cubs...got the $$ at the gate so why put a WS potential team on the field??
