Simple poll -- but please don't say "sure, it's not my money." Even if you beleive the Orioles had $125 mm extra to spend over the next five years, is this how you would have wanted them to spend it?

Nope. I have no issue with the Orioles not going hard after Hamilton. I do not think these high priced FA's are the path to long term success. I would rather they traded vets for more youth and depth. My problem is that they apparently have no plan at all, or maybe the plan is to do nothing. Which will not end well.

Tough question to answer. For instance, if it takes money away from being able to re-sign Wieters, no. If the money isn't going to be spent anywhere else and helps the club build upon the momentum they got from last year, why not.

I said yes.

What you are saying is that you are ok with it if it doesn't affect the rest of the budget? That is an odd position.

Nope. They shouldn't have let Reynolds walk.

Exactly the way I feel. I just do not get it. No draft pick compensation, cheap, power, good guy, well liked by his teammates, good defense at first. Lets see DD replace that without spending a hell of a lot more.

How is that odd when nobody knows what that budget is?

Because it flies in the face of everything that we all know about how budgets work.

Well, we do have a pretty good idea of what the budget is. Just that people think it could be higher.

yes. It's not my money. I would love to see PA spend his money and his grand kids money. I could care less if any owner makes a profit. I just want to see a great team

He's made a killing since 93 but the Homers here don't care.

Yes, this is a great point. It's made me realize that I need to do some deep reflection about my Homer complex. Thank you.
