  2. What would you offer Davis? Some sessions with a hypnotist who will put him to sleep, then convince him he is not greedy and he wants to stay in Baltimore.
  3. Tommy Emmanuel – Daytripper / Lady Madonna [video=youtube;cPkQn5nDTZs] Somewhere Over The Rainbow [video=youtube;0cHeNscKZN0]
  4. If Duquette leaves, it will have nothing to do with "one bad season." I think something else has been stirring since the events of last off-season and are still percolating..
  5. I stated in an earlier thread that I think Duquette will step down shortly after the season ends and a shakeup is coming. Just a gut feeling that something is wrong in the warehouse.
  6. I want to see Trey Mancini. I think he's definitely for real.
  7. Davis could end up with 50 or more the way he is hitting right now and no idea how long it might last. Not too many "non-steroid" players have hit 59 more than once in their careers. I hope the Orioles are willing to engage in serious talks about resigning Davis, and just make a some namby-pamby offer and say "well, we tried."
  8. I just wish the TV guys would STFU every now and then. Their incessant yammering become maddening, especially when they start with the inane statistics, or start going on about non-baseball stuff or reminiscing about some unrelated moment from years past. And I wish that Gary Thorne and Hunter would both STOP calling pitch locations because they are usually wrong. We don't need "details" on every moment....baseball is VISUAL on TV. Unlike listening on radio, we can see what is happening. Just be quiet every now and then and let the game speak for itself! Rant over.......
  9. Maybe..... but the question should be asked whether Cruz, and maybe Markakis, being "anchors" - probably not next year, but the last two years of their contracts - have been worth it if the Orioles were on their way to the playoffs, and maybe a World Series, again this year? IMO, we had one more year, maybe two if we were lucky, in that playoff window and I think the Orioles blew it. I believe signing Cruz and maybe Markakis, wouldn't have affected the situation with Davis, Wieters, and Chen because we weren't going to re-sign them anyway.
  10. I was talking about the 60 days he already spent on the DL not counting. Yeah, he could sit in the BP the rest of the year if Buck wanted that. But I think after his performance tonight, he will see some innings the rest of the year.....and hopefully stay healthy.
  11. When a team isn't hitting or stops hitting, it seems the hitting coach is usually the fall guy.
  12. I think Garcia needs to accumulate 90 days active on Baltimore's 25-man roster in order to lose his Rule 5 status. I don't think his time on the DL counts towards the 90 days. . Not sure?
