  1. Yeah, sorry, something of a false alarm. Studio crew debated our viability to compete in 2015 with the losses we've taken. Apparently unaware that it is, indeed, December 9th.
  2. Joel Sherman about to talk O's on MLB Network, FYI.
  3. I would be supportive of dealing Chen this offseason for some help in the lineup - having six starters is great, and I'd love to keep all six (due to the near certainty of injury or ineffectiveness), but I'm just not sure it will be a luxury we can afford going into this season given some of our other needs. Chen is a guy whose value is probably never going to be higher, so may be able to get a decent haul in return. Only issue is we'd end up with 5 righty starters, which is far from ideal; I know Buck tried to sequence his starters and hold guys out versus certain teams to create more favor
  4. Almost certainly the right move to let him walk, but this is a hard pill to swallow for most O's fans, I would think. Nick is the consummate professional, always plays hard, and really represents the toughness and makeup of this team over the last few years. He was loyal through some lousy years, and I'm really thrilled he got to play in the playoffs this year. Always one of my favorite O's. All the best in Atlanta, Nick - hope he really excels there.
  5. It seems to me that Jones' future in the majors is in the bullpen, so I wouldn't mind seeing him there (though I know he started some last year and had some success). I know some have speculated that Wright could be a big league bullpen pitcher as well, but it seems more certain on Jones. If he can help the big club as a lefty out of the pen, let's give him that work to begin the year at AAA (assuming, of course, he doesn't make the big club out of camp). I would bet Yoon gets a chance to start at the beginning of the year, with a relatively short leash. Don't know enough about him to know
  6. Strongly agree with this - I love Cruz for what he did this year, and he was a huge part of our success, but we're going to be paying premium prices for the premium numbers he put up. And as an aging slugger with a history of some health problems (and, of course, the PED suspension history), I'm not sure I want to go big with resigning Cruz. If we could get him on a favorable deal, then I'm listening. Much rather hope that Davis has a bounce back year. He is just one year removed from leading the league in homers and (I think) RBI. Don't think you just non-tender that.
  7. With apologies if this is misplaced and should've been it's own thread, because I'm struggling to cope, I did a quick review of free agents this coming off season. You can find a full list, at present, of this year's projected free agents: http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2013/02/2015-mlb-free-agents.html Who do you like and think the O's pursue? I think the best fit is Melky Cabrera, but he'll get a boatload of money and sign with a team in NY, LA, or Boston. Tough time seeing us go after him... More realistically, a couple guys I'm interested in sniffing around (assuming, as I expect, we
  8. How does that keep happening??? Truly unbelievable...I've never seen anything like this in my life
  9. Wow, what a joke, Guthrie. We never did anything to him, even paid the loser a good chunk of money. Class, class, class...
  10. I don't know you, but are you really defending the Nationals right now? On an O's board? Right now? Yeesh
  11. Definitely pleased to see the Nats out of this, especially as an O's fan that lives in DC (but from Maryland). The O's are in direct competition with the Nationals for fans, revenue, etc. A beltways series may have created a fun, local World Series, but ultimately the Nationals getting there would've bolstered a franchise that is still trying to uproot Orioles' loyalties in the DMV. Not saying that diehards on either side (to the extent there are on the Nationals side) are candidates to switch over, but there are plenty of ambivalent or non-committal baseball fans that could be had.
