Orioles are around 79m right now. (Update: $83M)

Recommended Posts

So the Ravens have the Browns history and the Colts have Baltimore's? Not sure that I understand this point.

What really makes it a fun rabbit hole to jump down is technically the Yankees were once the Orioles too so we get to just add that total into our column as well.

And now the 14 years of wretchedness Angelos put the fanbase through is looking smaller and smaller.

Orioles as a bird species have probably been on the planet how many tens of millions of years too...

Then when you follow the Orioles evolutionary chain back to dinosaurs and back further to single-celled organisms...

Really the Angelos-driven 14 years of losing is like the blink of an eye now.

Whoa man, great post. Thought provoking as well. Where have you been? I thought I was going to have to fabricate a MASN doesn't make any money post to smoke you out.

I am sorry most forget and the FO ignores the fact the O's are the St. Louis Browns which makes the franchise 112 years old. That we'll gladly wear a throw back uniform from the St. Louis Browns in a throw back game against the Cards in 2003 ( a series that I flew out to watch and had the pleasure of watching Ponson throw a gem) but ignore while the O's have a deep history, the Franchise from start to finish has a history in baseball that rivals Yankees, Dodgers and Cards.

It's really sad we ignore it. Case in point thinking the O's only started in 1954.

This is total BS. The issue is in the context of estimating arbitration numbers. They didn't have arbitration when the Browns were in St. Louis. :rolleyestf:

It might be me, but it seams that most of the clubs are signing about all of their arb players prior to going to the hearing.

Its like they all are afraid of losing and paying more money.

...Or the players are afraid of losing and receiving less money. It takes two to tango.

Every year, there are many more cases where both sides come to an agreement than cases that actually go to arbitration. That works to the benefit of both the teams and the players.

I touched a 200 hundred million year old rock on Tuesday. It puts things in perspective.

I've been so bored with this offseason I would say I've been coming on the OH about 1/50th what I used to. Plus, my particular line of work has always made the MASN subject one of personal interest.

Debating the potential of a dumpster-diving offseason just doesn't get me particularly enthusiastic. But like everyone else, I'll be revved up come opening day.

The Baltimore Orioles started in 1954 from my perspective. What happened to Bill Veeck is irrelevant to me. And Milwaukee? Not even.

And that's fine. But what happen to Veeck was a down right crime. He would have been the "first" primary owner of the O's but got screwed by Yankees and another. Hell, Veeck despite not being an O's owner played a huge role in getting a team to Baltimore and finding a player named Harold Baines. ;)

It was always clear from your posts that the MASN thing was more than a passing interest. Yup, despite this wretched offseason, I have to admit the photos from the mini-camp got my juices flowing for some baseball. I made flight and hotel arrangements for a handful games this week in fact.

If we want to get really technical- Pearce is making $850K, not $700. Young's deal is $1.0MM, not $1.2MM. I would probably include Aceves in the bullpen, who is $1.2MM, instead of Johnson or McFarland.

Both Baseball Reference and MLBTR are saying 700K for Pearce. Are you seeing 850K somewhere? Link please.

We do have a thread in regard to Veeck and his connection to the Orioles, as well as his tenure as the owner for the Browns before they moved to Baltimore.

Matt will get 8 million. We are easily sitting at 88 million without signing or trading for our front-line pitcher. I expect an OD payroll of 105 million.

This except the 105 number.

88.

    • Actually the Shorebirds put three players on the field who remind me of music industry veterans.   Toby Welk - Lawrence Welk Shayne Fontana - Shane Fontayne (guitarist with Bruce Springsteen’s “other” band in early 90’s) Johnny Rizer- anyone remember old DC101 dj Buddy Rizer? (He’s now head of economic development in Loudoun County VA)
    • Not 100% guarantees in the NFL but his base salary this year would have been $9m and he would have gotten that even if he had to stay on IR all year.  He was to get $11m in each of the next two years but of course he could have been cut with some sort of injury settlement or for non performance so those years weren't fully guaranteed.  But if he played to even an adequate level this year there would be no way they'd cut him next year.  Also have to give back some of his signing bonus, or at least Indy could ask him to. So I think it's safe to say he left at least an 8 figure amount on the table that he could have bad.  Exactly how much is hard to say.  Let's super rough it as something vaguely between $10m and $25m.  He has already warned $97m in his career 
    • Andrew Luck was dealing with chronic pain.  Chris Davis is injured and Luck is leaving zero guaranteed money on the table. NFL contracts are not guaranteed.
    • I was thinking about this today. How Chris's image would improve if he retired with a buyout agreement favorable to both parties.  Otherwise the general feeling of most people is he is stealing money from the Orioles who have made him a multi-millionaire. Hopefully his wife can get through to him and suggest at the end of the season he retire. I know this is unlikely with Scott Boras as his agent. Maybe Chris can explain to him his frustration with the game and his declining batting skills have caused him to make this decision.
    • This guy is on fire.....I'm wondering if the guys that said he'd be Nontendered this offseason are ready to eat crow?? C'mon gents, we know who you are!
    • I thought I read something about 80 million from MASN a while back. Even with Davis, Cobb, and Trumbo contracts the Os are making a pretty hefty profit just on the national and MASN deals.   So even if the number 0nly 110-120 million in revenue between the 2 deals ...the payroll is only 72 million and certain to ge less next year. A 40 million surplus times 2
