The lease news is the most important part of this IMO.

I should have mentioned that. 
 

I was never worried the Orioles were leaving but very important to note nonetheless.

This team being sold would be amazing 

Just remember, things can always get worse.

Remember not too long ago when folks were excited the sons were taking over?

Well the sons are better than dad..they aren’t good but they are better.

And I’m not sure it can get worse but I do get your point.

Ripken Baseball Ownership Group along with local investors would be great.

 

I’ll take Bisciotti and have him run things like he does the Ravens.

A combined group of Cal Ripken Jr, Steve Bisciotti and Kevin Plank would be fantastic.

 

Not that Elias should make or break a sale, but I do hope any new owner appreciates what he's bringing to the table for this franchise. He should be given the chance to see this rebuild through, IMO.

I only mention that because I'm not sure Cal sees things the same way. I really don't want him to be part of ownership based on my impressions of his old school approaches. I could definitely be wrong on that, but it's my read on him.

New ownership would want to negotiate their own lease... and/or investigate moving the franchise

Is anything in Baltimore open? How many years will it take to recover??

Hard pass. I don't want to see the Orioles take a hard turn into politics anymore than they have.

Bisciotti has allowed political ideology to be significant part of the Ravens' organization public persona. Whether I agree with his political stance or not, I do not want Bisciotti anywhere near the Orioles organization. 

Now I don't want this is turn political so there is no reason to talk about what the Ravens have done, but my preference would be to have an owner that is solely focused on providing the funding to make the Orioles a first class competitive baseball franchise once again! 

Regardless, if the Orioles ownership is preparing to sell the team, then we can forget about any kind of offseason pick ups this year (which I was not counting on anyways).

Plank/Ripken would be a nice combo.

    • Unfortunately we're going through this shakeout period with regards to streaming and everyone thinks you're going to pay $10, $20, $50, $80 a month for their service.  But most people are going to pick a few that best suit them and just say no to all the others.  No, I'm not changing everything around and paying more just to get the one with MASN.  But I would definitely pay $15 or whatever a month to watch just the O's.
    • Some more precise numbers from Jon Meoli at The Sun on the mid-range Dominican players. I believe it is still policy not to announce the signing bonuses of Venezuelan players due to unrest in that country. 
    • That makes sense for all involved. Looking forward to seeing a healthy Trey next season on the field.
    • Orioles sign 17 International Free Agents Per Melewski: https://www.masnsports.com/steve-melewski/2021/01/basallo-and-hernandez-head-up-os-international-class.html "The Orioles today announced a signing class of 17 international amateurs, including the club’s first two players signed for seven figures. Per industry sources, the club has contract agreements with catcher Samuel Basallo from the Dominican Republic for $1.3 million and with Venezuelan shortstop Maikol Hernández for $1.2 million. The Orioles announced that 11 more from this group are six-figure agreements. Of the 17 agreements, 13 are from the Dominican Republic and four are from Venezuela   Catcher Samuel Basallo, L/R, 16, Dominican Republic Basallo, once linked to the New York Yankees, got the largest signing bonus ever given to an international amateur by the Orioles. Basallo, who turned 16 on Aug. 13, has plus arm strength and some solid raw power. Some scouts have put a 60 grade on his arm. At 6-foot-3 and 198 lbs., it’s possible he could outgrow the catcher position. Shortstop Maikol Hernández, R/R, 17, Venezuela At 6-foot-4 and 175 lbs., Hernández has several impressive tools with a strong arm and power. He’s drawn some comparisons to bigger shortstops at young ages like Carlos Correa and Manny Machado. He was previously linked to St. Louis and Pittsburgh. Six players, per industry sources, signed with the Orioles for bonuses between $300,000 and $400,000. Here is that group: Outfielder Wilmer Feliciano, L/R, 16, Dominican Republic He is a lefty batter with some solid raw power and it is believed got the third-highest bonus among this group. Shortstop Victor Celedonio, S/R, 17, Dominican Republic A switch-hitter, it is believed he got the fourth-highest signing bonus in this class. Outfielder Teudis Cortorreal, L/L, 17, Dominican Republic A lefty batter who is a center field prospect. Shortstop Eruviel Castillo, R/R, 17 Dominican Republic Shortstop Anderson De Los Santos, R/R, 17, Dominican Republic Catcher Yasmil Bucce, L/R, 16, Venezuela The following players signed six-figure bonuses, believed to range between $100,000 and $225,000. Catcher Aneudis Mordán, R/R, 16, Dominican Republic Shortstop Angel Tejada, R/R, 16, Dominican Republic Center fielder Junior Lara, L/L, 16, Dominican Republic Left-hander Deivy Cruz, L/L, 16, Dominican Republic Center fielder Ángel Peña, L/R, 16, Dominican Republic These four signings round out this class. Outfielder Héctor Jiménez, R/R, 16, Dominican Republic Left-hander Elvis Polanco, L/L, 17, Dominican Republic Catcher Carlos Rodríguez, R/R, 17, Venezuela Outfielder Grabiel Salazar, R/R, 19, Venezuela"
