Nashville Orioles???

Recommended Posts

I understand a deal behind closed doors have the team being sold to a Nashville Investment group as soon as 2020/21. One team name being batted around is the "Nashville Notes". The group sounds like it has deep pockets and eager to make a deal. MLB in turn has promised to return a team to OPACY by 2025 by a two team expansion plan, with the second team going to Vegas.

Somebody should tweet at her that her singing sucks and country is the worst genre of music.

Really? I just don’t know what to say about this post. As someone who spent 12 years in the music business, I’ve listened to all kinds of music. Some I have really liked and some not so much. But, I appreciate the creative ability of the artist. 

If you don’t like country music then why stay and listen? Wasn’t the whole idea of the series woman in county music?

So if you don’t like country don’t partake!

finally, have a little class or grow up!

I would think they could also buy the Rays or As which would be easier to move.

Also part of the value of the Orioles is owning MASN. That deal obviously needs to be resolved. But it’s a valuable asset they would ultimately be giving up by relocating.

I have been to Nashville several times and it seems strange to be a top place to retire to.  More likely they are talking about low taxes and cost of living than a place where anyone would actually like to retire. 

No state income tax

No inheritance tax

No tax on SS benefits

Major Universities, with major medical schools (Vanderbilt)

Easy Access to Smokey Mountains

Multiple large lakes for boating provided by Tennessee Valley Authority

Major center for live music

Low cost of living

NFL, NHL, MLB(?)

I can't believe we're still talking about this ridiculous non-story on a site that regularly throws around the term "Hangout Worthy."  This garbage rumor is the very definition of not being "Hangout Worthy."

Exactly, it's a BS story.  Complete and utter nonsense.  Hot garbage put out by a fringe newspaper that has zero credibility IMO.  Nothing to see here, move along.  But then I come here, and see posts about "Nashville Notes."  SMH.

But upon further review, only one of these rumors seems plausible. The other is most assuredly not.

Peter Angelos has owned the club since 1993, when he beat Jeffrey Loria for the bankruptcy purchase of the club for $173 million. (Loria would go on to own the Montreal Expos, and later the Marlins.) Since then, the club has gained considerable value—the most recent Forbes valuation places them at $1.3 billion, an inflation-adjusted increase of 323%—regardless of the team’s moribund showing in the standings over most of his ownership tenure. With Angelos now 90 and in failing health, his family has taken over the day-to-day operations. While his wife, Georgia, would be the successor, his sons, John and Lou, have been running the club

While it is true that the lease expires relatively soon, no club can relocate out of its local market without a process. Whether that’s the Orioles or another team—as with the Tampa Bay Rays’ current situation, the Montreal Expos when they relocated or other potential movers, such as the A’s or the Diamondbacks—baseball executives confirmed to me that simply picking up and moving cannot occur, and no club can speak to any other market about formally relocating without it being vetted. 

That process includes a request-for-proposal-type process in which a relocation committee is assembled to examine the potential move. Should the market supply the requisite pieces to host the club (land acquisition, funding and development of a ballpark, regional television deal, etc.), then the committee would recommend whether the move can go forward to a vote of the other 29 MLB owners. Should 75% of the owners vote in favor of the move, relocation can then occur.

Michael Frenz, executive director for the Maryland Stadium Authority, said discussions with the Orioles on a new lease remain ongoing.

"Our working relationship with the O's is excellent and we are both working on concepts to expand revenues from the Oriole Park facilities," Frenz said.

Here’s a concept: try putting a good team on the field.

I think I must be in the minority or clueless.

I don't see the Orioles leaving Baltimore.

Have they kicked the tires, maybe, probably?

But, at the end of the day, I see them staying here.

 

Huh? I think most of don't think they are going anywhere.

I don't think that has to happen.  That's just what some teams have done, and I think that's wrong.  The St. Louis Browns have no history in Baltimore.  There's no George Sisler statue here, and not one in 1000 Oriole fans could tell you who Harlond Clift or Kenny Williams were. If the Orioles moved to Nashville they certainly should have another name.  Orioles belongs to Baltimore and has for well over a century.  If they allowed some Nashville team to be called the Orioles I think I'd be done with MLB for good.

The community gets the history, no matter what some company like Major League Baseball or one of its franchises thinks.  No matter what anybody says Andre Dawson and Rusty Staub have absolutely no connection to the Nats, and Wilbert Robinson never managed the LA Dodgers.  Connie Mack isn't part of Oakland or Kansas City.  And Frank Howard and Walter Johnson have nothing to do with Minneapolis or Texas.  The place and the time and the people who remember things own it, not MLB or Peter Angelos or Bob Short or anybody else.

If the O's move to Nashville the people of Baltimore and Maryland own the Orioles' history.  Nobody else.

Yep. this is one of the reasons I hate the Indianapolis Colts for so long. Art Modell did it the right way by leaving the colors and history with the city for when they got another team. 

The Colts should have always been known as the Baltimore Colts, and the Orioles should always be known as the Baltimore Orioles. The NFL continues to screw the pooch with allowing these franchises to move the names and colors.

    • Baysox Walk Off in Wild 7-6 Affair Cumberland’s HR ties game, while McKenna’s bunt wins it.   BOWIE, Md. – The Bowie Baysox scored a run in the ninth and 10th innings to escape with a 7-6 thriller over the Binghamton Rumble Ponies in front of 2,462 at Prince George's Stadium Wednesday afternoon.   Bowie (40-20) jumped out to a first-inning lead for the second straight. A single and two hit-by-pitches loaded the bases for Jesse Valentin, who lifted a sacrifice fly to left field to easily score Cedric Mullins. Gavin Cecchini tied the game two pitches into the second inning with his third home run of the season to left field.   The hosts immediately answered with some two-out production in the bottom half of the second inning. Ryan McKenna took the first pitch from Tommy Wilson and sent a triple to the LF corner, past a diving Michael Paez. T.J. Nichting, who hustled into second base with a bloop double and went to third base on a groundout, trotted home to give Bowie a 2-1 lead.   The Baysox scored a run in their third consecutive inning, increasing their advantage to 3-1. Zach Jarrett lined a two-out single to right field to score Brett Cumberland, who started the rally with a single before a Mason McCoy walk.    Binghamton (26-37) tied the game with two outs in the top of the fourth, but Bowie regained the leading by scoring in the fourth straight frame. Ryan Ripken blooped a two-out RBI triple past a diving Barrett Barnes to score Mullins and Valentin. The first baseman has driven in four runs in the three-game series and has hit .417 (10-for-24) with five multi-hit games in his past six games played.   The Ponies again fought back and scored in four straight innings to re-take the lead, capped by a Patrick Mazeika home run in the seventh inning off LHP Luis Gonzalez. RHP Cristian Alvarado tossed a pair of key scoreless innings, keeping the Ponies off the board and the Baysox in the game.   In the bottom of the ninth inning, the hosts struck and tied the game once again. Cumberland launched a one-out solo home run to deep left-center field off Joshua Torres for the catcher’s third long ball of the season.   One inning later, after Francisco Jimenez tossed a scoreless 10th inning, Mullins reached on a bunt single down the third base line to advance Nichting to third base. One batter later, McKenna drove in his second run of the game on a bunt down the first base line. Nichting sped home to beat the throw from first baseman Patrick Mazeika.   The final home series of the 2019 regular season begins Thursday night at 7:05 p.m., when LHP Zac Lowther (12-7, 2.77 ERA) faces RHP Pedro Vasqiez (7-3, 2.69 ERA) and the Altoona Curve, Double-A Affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates.                     
    • Frederick Keys News Release   For Immediate Release: August 21, 2019   BURKE, BULLPEN TOSS SHUTOUT IN GAME TWO WIN KEYS AND P-NATS SPLIT QUASI-DOUBLEHEADER FREDERICK, MD – The Frederick Keys (21-35, 50-75) and Potomac Nationals (30-28, 60-65) split a quasi-doubleheader on Wednesday night at Nymeo Field. The two teams picked up a suspended game from Tuesday night in the bottom of the first inning and the P-Nats polished off a 6-3 win. The Keys bullpen came out in force in game two as Scott Burke and company tossed a 1-0 shutout victory. With the win, the Keys force a rubber match on Thursday night. Game two saw limited offense until the Keys broke a scoreless tie in the bottom of the fifth. Ben Breazeale lead-off the inning with a single and Will Robertson followed with a double into left-center field to put two runners in scoring position. The P-Nats then brought in Hayden Howard to relieve Francys Peguero (0-1). He walked a batter to load the bases and Robbie Thorburn followed with a soft groundball to the right side that scored the runner from third. Burke was outstanding for the Keys. In his first Carolina League start, he tossed four scoreless frames and struck out four batters, including a pair with two runners in scoring position in the second inning. Reed Hayes (1-2) picked up the win after throwing two innings in relief. Tim Naughton (S, 😎 made it interesting in the ninth as he put the tying and go-ahead runners on before retiring the final batter. The suspended game picked up in the bottom of the first inning with the Keys trailing 2-0 after the P-Nats scored against Blaine Knight (1-10) in the opening half inning that was played on Tuesday. Potomac continued their scoring ways on Wednesday. After a strikeout-wild-pitch and a walk put runners at first and second, MLB Rehabber Ryan Zimmerman hit a double down the left-field line that scored a run. Aldrem Corredor then brought home another to make it 4-0 P-Nats. In the third, Jakson Reetz snuck a home run over the wall in left field, and the P-Nats were able to load the bases in the fourth with no one out. Ofelky Peralta limited the damage. He forced a groundball double-play that allowed a run to score to make it 5-0 and then got a pop-up to get out of the jam. Peralta lasted into the seventh but was pulled after he recorded a strikeout. He struck out four and allowed four runs while walking a career-high six batters over 5.1 innings. Meanwhile, P-Nats starter Tim Cate (5-4) was dealing. His only hiccup was in the fifth when Daniel Fajardo clubbed an RBI double off him to put the Keys on the board. Cate picked up the win and struck out nine over seven innings. The Keys offense got going in the eighth inning. After Fajardo singled, Chris Clare followed with a double to put runners at second and third with one-out. Cole Billingsley then hit a groundball that scored a run and Sean Miller poked a two-out base hit through the right side to bring home a run and make it 6-3 P-Nats Frankie Bartow (S, 6) shut the door in the ninth for Potomac. Knight took the loss despite throwing just one inning on Tuesday. The Keys and P-Nats square off in a rubber match on Thursday, August 22 before hitting the road. RHP Brenan Hanifee (8-9, 4.35) takes the mound for Frederick against RHP Francys Peguero (0-0, 1.42) for Potomac. First pitch is scheduled for 7:00pm with pregame coverage starting at 6:45pm on the Tune In app and frederickkeys.com. The Frederick Keys are the Advanced-A affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles, and play their home games at Nymeo Field at Harry Grove Stadium. Following the 2018 season, the Keys were named the winner of the Carolina League’s Complete Franchise Award. This goes to a team in the league which demonstrates franchise stability and significant contributions to its community and the league. In 2019, the team will host the Carolina League All-Star Classic presented by Visit Frederick.
