But Roberts isn't going to fetch a lot and signings are starting to take place on the FA market. MacPhail can't afford to wait if that's where he wants to go...

BTW, research recently showed that, if you provide people who have a certain belief with Actual Factual Evidence that their belief is wrong, it can actually *strengthen* their belief.
In other words, some folks are just Evidence-Proof. Thought you might wanna know this...

If Tex was interested in coming here he might have given the O's a chance to up their offer.
But nope, the Yanks swooped in. Seriously, practically everyone on this board has come to the realization that Tex never really was interested in coming here, except for you.

Miguel Tejada didn't have a huge attraction to the Orioles and we blew him away so he signed. We should have done the same thing with Tex.
And that's my final say on the matter.

Hang in there JTREA don't let the defenders on here from the law firm and warehouse get the better of you.
You can defend Angelos all you want but you can't change the facts. He's been running this team for years to make money and been spectacularly successful.
Rebuilding means acquiring good young players to fill positions of need. He's got as you say JTREA a great opportunity here but refuses to spend. He's doing a great job of dumping salary not rebuilding.
The fans have seen through this, thank heavens, and are reacting. Attendance will be way way down. We might not even make a million in attendance. Angelos may well see revenues drop 40 million this year.
