  1. Very Sad day. Tom Terrific will always be one of the greatest pitchers of all time in my mind. A great pitcher and a great person. I read that he suffered from dementia at the end. RIP Tom.
  2. where is the plays out his contract option? I actually think they will just bury him on the bench and drag him all the way through the terms of the deal.
  3. Lol. I hear you. But....He is a much better first baseman than he is a hitter, and that isn't saying much.
  4. Yep. This will be interesting to see. I will not be surprised if they sit him against lefties.
  5. Looks like Davis is vying to lead the league in K's wire to wire. I just hope that the O's will put him out of his misery after about a month.
  6. I don't think this will be a good team this year, but I do think they will be better than last years team. And I know they will be much more fun to watch, because its gonna be the young guys and not the veterans on the slide.
  7. Because prior to having one O legally removed from his last name, he was Taylor Groover?

    I see it as a win-win, with no way to really lose. Tulo wants a place to start, and there are not many of those out there. His power would play up here. Its a minimum investment, if he can't play then drop him and move on. If he can play, the Orioles benefit, and Tulo benefits by putting up big numbers in a bandbox like OPACY. I like the idea.
  9. I am all for the patience route at this point. Grenier is going to be a very good defensive SS as soon as they can get his bat to meh level. Think Bordick.
  10. For that kind of money? Hell yes, I would bring him back.
  11. Well, Buck and especially Dan should have been fired a long time ago. For sure. Schoop has the tools to be a very good third baseman imo. Is that a move I think the O's should make? Maybe not, his K rate and inconsistent offense is the biggest concern to me. I think Nunez is pretty interesting, I think I may prefer to go the Nunez route.
  12. The guy put "speculating" in the topic. And Mike Moustakis signed a one year low dollar deal to play last season. You don't think Moustakis is a better third baseman than Beckham? The board is about conversation, not reporting. Last time I checked, we were still allowed to speculate.
  13. If Austin Hays can be the guy we thought he was going to be, that would be huge!
  14. I think they want to go to Miami. Is the money enough to overcome that? I doubt it.
