Well...I'm not paying for it, but the first few paragraphs don't really tell us anything we don't know.   We know the team will be in transition and that they might not contend.

I'd recommend doing the free trial to read it. It's an interesting read.

It seems like the Angelos sons want to rebuild the organization to focus on the farm system, the draft, and international signings - which is exactly what needs to happen.

Thanks for the summary!  :D

And...I agree with you.

Since the Cobb signing, it seems obvious a transition is happening. The most interesting details are what happens to Buck and Dan, but they aren't in the free section.

They may ask Dan to take on a lesser role.  Sounds to me Buck will be back in some capacity.

Encouraging--if true.  I'd like to see Buck back in some capacity.  DD can go pound sand.

I can't thank Lou Angelos enough for convincing Peter to sign Cashner and Cobb. The Orioles needed these two guys in the worst way. I am still in absolute shock that the Orioles signed Cobb.

Ok. Thanks. I will summarize. 

-Sons are basically running the team.Jury is still out... and quickening up decision making.GOOD thing! Peter has not even been around regularly at his law office since start of year. GREAT THING!!!!!

-Brady is tight with Lou and has more responsibilities.Jury still out. Ran pitcher free agent acquisitions.Jury still out. Dan is losing power and is frustrated.I like Dan... but I'm open to a new era.

-Buck wants to stay.DO IT! DO IT! DO IT! Most think manager but perhaps FO.Manager! Not as strong clubhouse as he was but will basically have a new team and some players from old teams already left.I like this. Younger players, some new blood vets, pickups next offseason, will (can) be Buck's clubhouse again.

-Some people think sons will increase farm efforts, draft, etc. Peter never trusted anyone to run International side. ANY movement from the old way is a positive!

Thanks for the summary. My comments above in red.
