Well,well, Belkast's last message would suggest a happy ending for you all...but I should point out that it has been learned that the Sox contingent is STILL in Texas.

Maybe they are going to the Ravens/Cowboys game too??? Maybe Theo will challenge MacPhail to a fight at the game...winner takes Tex? :eek:

By the way IF the Orioles sign Tex, I expect your Ravens will then lose so my Patriots can get the second wildcard spot? C'mon let's be FAIR!

Absolutely NOT. :angryfire:

I am a Cowboys fan and the team needs that W.

I'm right there with you on that one. Well, I'll CARE if he's not an Oriole. But for the love of God, just not a Red Sock.

Basically, what I meant. I'd LOVE him as an O. But could tolerate him anywhere but Beantown.

Maybe its b/c of the snowstorm in Boston?

C'mon, we give and give and give. How about a nice gift from New Englanders to us Baltimorons?

That's what I was thinking, and probably another reason they flew down to meet him instead of him flying to Boston.

How about Eagles/Redskins?

Tex lives in Texas. Tex is in Texas. The Ravens play at Dallas tomorrow night. Seriously doubt he'd waste his time at the Eagles/Redskin game. :rolleyestf:

Does it count if I am a displaced Balitmoron living in New England? ;)

One thing you are forgetting about the DC/NoVA market is many people that live there aren't from there and most likely have affiliations with their own hometown teams. Many people who live in DC aren't from DC, unlike the Baltimore metro area.
Yeah, but by your logic there's is still nobody from DC that lives there, so why would they like a team regardless of how long they've been around?

I'm not saying the Nats and Skins are comparable, I'm just arguing against saying that Nats will never have a good fan base because nobody that lives in DC is from the area.

Where did I say "nobody that lives in DC is from that area"? I said many who live in DC aren't from DC, coupled with the fact that many baseball fans in DC already have a favorite team.

Remember, this is DC's third shot at a baseball team.

    • Last series of the season, the homestretch, Lopez versus who cares? Go Os! Savor every hit and run, savor even the errors and the gaffes, because after Sunday, the sun sets until Pitchers & Catchers report...if they do. edit: and if you DO care, it’s Taiwan Walker flinging for the Jays.
    • Hey, it worked for Givens.
    • Hays should be on the IL by then.
    • Eddie Gamboa did make the majors with the Rays in 2016 and Baseball Reference has him wearing an O's hat.  Does that count?
    • My guess: If they trade Cobb at the deadline they will already have paid 2/3s of his salary.   If Elias can dump half of Cobb's salary for a Dominican player that will probably never make the majors......he is gone. I don't know Elias plans for Diaz but if he think he will be promoted by some time in May he will need to find at bats for him.   Nunez  staying on a 30 homer pace means he could make 2 or 3 million in arbitration.   I don't see Elias paying that when he can replace him with a current O's prospect make less than 600K.   Alberto will be a one and a half years from FA in July.  So if someone makes an offer that gets Elias a good return Alberto  is gone.  Valaika is almost the same player.   Hit lefties but not righties.  Plays a decent 2B with some versatility.  And Valaika will be cheaper by a million or two. Davis probably stays on the 26 man roster so they can see if there is a work stoppage in the next two years that saves the O's part of his salary.   So the bench is Davis, a catcher, an outfielder and an infielder that can play SS well enough to backup Iglesias.   With Martin at AAA to start the season Elias has to go find that player. 
    • From I recall, didn't seem like a knuckleball so much as an eephus pitch.
    • I was just perusing the old Fangraphs, looking to see if anyone had thrown a knuckleball in 2020.  Last year there were a handful of guys who threw a few flutterballs, but I knew Steven Wright was out with an injury.  According to the pitch type listings the only people who've thrown the pitch this year are position players: Erik Kratz, Todd Frazier, and Holaday.  But it's so few pitches, and players who don't normally pitch, I don't know if it wasn't just a mis-categorization of a batting practice curveball or something. Does anyone remember Holaday's stint on the mound on August 14th?  I certainly wasn't watching the end of a 15-3 blowout loss.  The only clue in the game thread was @SteveA commenting that "Holaday bringing it at 73 MPH". If we could get confirmation that he threw a knuckler, that might be the first one by an Oriole pitcher since Dan Boone in 1990, although Fangraphs says Ryan Flaherty may have also thrown a few knucklers in a pitching appearance in '16.  But again we'd need confirmation that it wasn't just a 71 mph junkball that the trackers didn't know what to do with.
