    Random Drug Test

    I think that would be 3 years too late for Davis.
  2. Where did this tidbit come from? While the farm system as a whole is on it's way up- a lot of credit has been given to John Wasdin's input on the pitching prospects we've drafted the past two years-

    TT: Silence of Ownership is Deafening

    Unfortunately my info will be very muted going forward as my guy in no longer in the employ of the O’s as of Wednesday. He was very upset and frustrated by the incredible disfuction within the organization- too many cooks offering varied opinions often contrary to each other. One thing he did say a while back is our Tony has a real good incite to the inter working and disfunctions of the organization.

    TT: Silence of Ownership is Deafening

    Tidbits: 1. Os are / done getting rid of all Duquette people per Brian graham agenda. He is very close w L.A. 2. Very disfunctional organization but Duquette was trying to keep it together until he upset mgt w the blue jay temptation . From there on, they very much neutered all his work. 3. He never wanted the Davis deal and tried to get a long term deal w manny but was constantly being undermined by Brian and Buck. 4. Duquette wanted international signings and was rebuffed by mgt- contact offers 12- 15 they were accepted by the athletes but not signed off by ownership. 5. Only hope is for an ownership change as there is no confidence in the son taking control properly.

    TT: Silence of Ownership is Deafening

    The Dominican issue hit very close to home. If one were to use the initials say lo, you could make some assumptions about the change in policy about the small Latin American country.

    Top President / EVP Candidates?

    I believe with all of the recent “activities “ - advising 5 organizational people they are not being renewed, the tea leaves are indicating that there is someone in place at the pbo position making those calls. They are simply waiting for the WS to end prior to making it official.

    It still looks like Grenier’s back foot is moving back behind him wat too much ala Robert Andino. His back foot should be just rotating inwardly instead of backwards allowing for a much more balanced swing.

    When will the Orioles Announce hirings?

    Roch said there would be an announcement just before ws which would be tomorrow or immediately after the ws. We will see about tomorrow. I think they already have it locked down.

    Top President / EVP Candidates?

    Sherman Obando- cool name from the past. Just trying to read the tea leaves. O’s looking for president type and Cherington checks all the boxes.. check out his Wikipedia post. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben_Cherington the only negative is his connection to Dan Duquette. He is looking for a total rebuilt. He was an associate of McLeod in Boston hence the connection to the gm job.

    I believe it is Ben Cherington job as pbo and josh McLeod as the gm. They need string baseball scouting background Ng does not have.

    The Victor Victor Mesa/Sandy Gaston thread

    Buck did not want two similar pitchers same throwing angle-. O’Day and Neshek

    On the record: What I want is...

    Hearing voices that many in the warehouse and the remote staff want duke back. He needs to rework the organization and not have to deal with Buck. Hopefully Brady’s position will be lessen in the player acquisition.

    Per Nightengale: Dan Stays, Buck Goes.

    My top three: 1. Mark DeRosa 2. Carlos Beltran 3. JJ Hardy

    Will Chris Davis make it to 502 PA?

    It is incomprehensible that the Orioles allow him to play. He has clearly lost it mentally. Perhaps the rumors about the “meds” were true? Ever since he signed the contract, he is a completely different player. He should acknowledge his inabilities and retire. #davislostit

    The early returns from the four deadline deals

    Look at encarnacion right foot. He’s bailing it out - moving it back ala Robert andino. That needs to be fixed.
