  2. As with any injury there is a normal progression. You have to pass the rehab part before starting sports specific training. Once the training starts it takes usually about 10-21 (10 on a first injury and more toward 21-30 with a surgical intervention) days to verify they are healthy enough. I cannot imagine the Orioles rushing this kid at all. As Tony has mentioned, this is the type of injury that can reoccur. I am treating a soccer player who just had his knee cap realigned and tightened. He is 6 months into his rehab progress and still not cleared to play yet. Although he will tell yo

  3. At some point you have to step up and pay. You can sit around and call it what you want, but if you want to compete at some point you have to be willing to sign a guy like Holliday, Teixeira, Beltre or attempt to trade for Adrian Gonzales with the intention of signing him long term. Are they going to be expensive? Absolutely, but to contend in the AL East you have to have impact guys. MacPhail has publicly said he doesn't want to sign guys like this and his actions has proven his words correct. He prefers to find guys like Lee or Guerrero at the end of their careers or God help us all drop $4.

  4. This basically has become just a thread about the books. I keep checking back on it to see what you guys are thinking about the show, but its all just semi-spoilers referencing future books. Could we have one of the multiple Game of Thrones threads where we just talk about the show as it develops? It doesn't matter to me which one.

  6. [video=youtube;7JrkUS9RhmE] Maybe it's just me, but I got goosebumps watching this video. I've got a feeling he could be a player and one of the steals of the draft. I'm rooting for him anyways. Hail!

  26. Hey, all. First time poster. Watching on YES up here in CT; anyone else in my neck? Just wanted to say hey, and remark how nice it is to be on a board that is just O's fans. The ESPN boards are lousy with gamblers and losers. Nice K of Granderson just now. Now someone needs to remind the guys that it's not 1998 anymore, and that it is entirely acceptable to light Colon up like the wash-up he is.

  28. i will give the obligatory weather update.....things look clear for at least the next two hours - lots of rain east of Baltimore right now over Delaware that will move past the city and not affect the game - but there is a cell of storms heading north and they are east of Fredericksburg VA right now and they will most likely hit Baltimore.... after that it is pretty scattered.... the cell that will hit will be after the game starts..... i guess i am predicting a rain delay @ the 3rd or 4th innings....

  29. Gary's most vocal supporters are mostly people who are very loyal (maybe to a fault) and can easily recall the state of the program when Gary arrived. Gary himself said he had no idea just how bad things would be until after he had been there for a season and the NCAA finally handed down the sanctions, almost all of which happened under Bob Wade. Just to review, those sanctions included 2 years of no postseason and one season of no televised games. That's harsh. Gary later admitted that he gave thought to leaving for other opportunities, but he stayed out of loyalty to his alma mater. Whether

  30. I just don't understand the reasoning here. I was worried about losing Gary. I thought he should have left on his own terms. He did. I am happy. I like the direction of the program now. I think we did a great job in identifying the right head coaches and getting a very good one it seems in Turgeon. The fact that recruiting should take a huge leap is a big bonus. This has turned out perfectly for UMD. Yet, it had the opportunity to not turn out as great, which I think was what some of the Gary supporters were worried about as well. I think posing this question is going to divide the

  31. It's amazing to me how naive some people were to just how much Gary was handcuffing the program. You have to have talent first and foremost in college basketball. I appreciate what Gary did for the program, can't wait to see his name on the court but as I said numerous times I was patiently waiting for his era to end because I knew pretty much whoever stepped into his place was going to take advantage of the resources MD had at hand to improve the rosters. I tell you what, there is without a doubt a buzz and excitement around MD basketball again even though Turg hasn't coached his first game y

  32. 7/140-150 as an opening offer is good enough for me to know that it wasn't a lowball offer. I am more curious as to whether the Orioles received a counter-proposal or were rejected outright. If he actually wanted to come here, that offer would not have insulted him enough to walk away from negotiations.

  34. It was widely reported that the Orioles offered him 7/140-150. He signed with the Yankees for 8/180. Through two seasons he has been worthless than the AAV of either deal. He is off to a hot start this year, but his WAR was 3.5 last year. It would need to be around 5 to merit the contract he received. If he isn't worth it now, why would anybody expect him to be worth it 3-5 years from now. /PREMIUM!!!!!!

  36. Baltimore kid hated in Baltimore for choosing Yankees over Orioles. Doesn't like it. Says Orioles were never really interested. Come on people, you can argue that we mishandled the negotiation, but there is no way that we didn't want him. Andy said during the negotiations themselves he was willing to raise the offer if Tex would reengage. I am 99% sure this is just a way for Tex to try and get back in better graces with Orioles fans. I hope none of you fall for it.

  37. My biggest concern with signing Guthrie long term is payroll flexibility. After 2011, we are set to ditch Guerrero ($5M), Lee ($7.25M), Gonzalez ($6M), Hardy ($5.85M), Uehara ($3M), Izturis ($1.5M), Duke ($700K), and assuming Accardo is non-tendered ($1.08M). So that is approximately $30M coming off the books. Through salary increases, we add $6M for Markakis, Reynolds, and Gregg. So that leaves the Orioles with around $24M. In terms of arbitration: 1st year - Andino ($420K) and Bergesen ($420K) 2nd year - Pie ($985K), Johnson ($975K), and Jones ($3.25M) 3rd year - Guthrie ($5.75M) 4th

  38. I wouldn't add him to the roster in August or September unless we are in contention. First, we are starting to accumulate talent so the 40 man roster spots are starting to become more valuable. When looking over the roster to see who could be taken off for when Simon returns, there are only a few candidates, like Florimon, Tatum, or Lebron who are even viable options to take off. Secondly, we have other pitchers, such as Patton, Spoone, and Viola who are reaching make or break time in the minors so I would rather have them up here in September. Finally, why add him to the roster and start his

  39. When factoring in team situation, the timing hasn't been good to go out and sign Tex, Holliday, or Lackey. And lets not forget Lackey in this just because he's been awful. Again, lots of hindsight going on here. Most of the board did not want Holliday for the cost. Just about no one on here thought going to 8/190 or more for Tex was a good idea before free agency that year, but then some got caught up in the moment and went from saying their max was 6-7 year 18-20M to 8-9 years at 23-25M a year. A decent amount of people wanted Lackey, although it might be hard to tell that now, but I think

  42. So who is your impact free agent that we can sign this off season that will suddenly make us a contender? A lot of what you say is true, but the problem is that MapPhil's spends money on guys that are not going make a difference (Atkins, Gonzales, Gregg, Lee,) instead of investing in potential impact international prospects. If MacPhail had been investing heavily in truly building up our farm system, we would have been using $4.5 million on the international market or on above slot guys instead of on a guy like Atkins. Did anyone think Gonzales, even if he had pitched successfully was going to

  43. You are right, he was nothing like Guthrie. He was considered one of the top 2 or 3 lefthanded starters in the league and he was much younger, and much more valuable.

  44. It's kinda like I mentioned the other day about Hultzen. The stats are kind of misleading in college when it comes to pitchers with better secondaries. Cole might get hit here or there if he's just throwing gas all day and blowing it past people, those kids can get lucky and get a hold of a 96mph pitch here or there, doesn't take much swing to hit one of those out just gotta get the good part of the bat on it. If Bauer is throwing good secondaries at people a) he's a glaring contrast to Cole throwing all that heat the night before, and b) most hitters at that stage can't lay off or hit good se

  46. I don't think he's perceived as valuable to other teams as much as he is here. In other words, his stock is pretty low. I don't think the return on a trade would equal the value we're currently getting or expect to get in the next 3-5 years. I say keep him.

  47. The bottom line is MacPhail is good for the bottom line. He is yet to sign an impact free agent and his Calvary arrived. He developed the arms, but buys his bats and bullpen arms at Walmart.

  48. Seriously. Stupid cliffhangers. Last nights episode was pretty BA, though no Jon and no Dany was kind of disappointing. I know that they're getting in to the meat of the buildup to the War of the Five Kings, but not even a quick "looksie"? Lysa Tully and whatever they ended up calling her son (I know they changed his name to avoid confusion) were suitably insane and creepy. And I was wondering how they'd treat Renly and Loras Tyrell, but I wasn't really expecting all that.
