  1. It means write your own ticket, whatever you want, blank check etc. It's french and literally means whiTe or blank paper and originated as sign of surrender in military sitations: waving the white paper meant you can write your own terms, just don't kill us.

  2. I gotta say, seeing the entire Michigan crowd doing the "Ooooh oh oh oh oh oh" part in unison was pretty cool.

  4. If Buck doesn't want the job as GM as noted, then I've got to think with all the deals we've made with the Texas Rangers in the past two years, Asst. GM Thad Levine has got to be the front-runner for the job. You've got Buck, the aged wise one and Levine, the young disciple with Oriole ties.

  5. I really like Eddie Murray as a person and I think Cal is a very fine Man, not just a ball player. If they have been totally phony when I have spoken with them and observed them with others then I am a fool. Any mukrakers that write trash about them or have stirred the pot to make a name for themselves are uncool in the Weams book.

  6. Rosenthal, and his mentor, the sainted John Steadman, helped lead the charge to run Eddie Murray out of town. I can probably count on one hand the number of articles that Ken wrote which didn't criticize Cal's streak, that is, before the record was broken.

  7. Hopefully what Buck wants is a real GM who knows what he is doing and Buck and PA stay out of his way.

  8. Hilarious! Well, I'm back and might just give you guys a full report soon, but too exhausted right now and I have a ot of Orioles catching up to do. Can you believe the Orioles are not a op priority for the Floridians down there? Bunch of jerks!

  9. Thank gods. I'm cool with him being the manager, I just don't want him acquiring talent. Here's hoping they raid the TEX organization for some talented front office people and really do things the right way from now on.

  10. I said there was a reason Buck took this job. I think it's been said though he'd rather manage as he's not up to speed on negotiations and the transaction part of the game. I expect him to bring in a GM to get him what he wants. I also expect him to clean out the FO. I expect a major run at Prince Fielder or Pujols as Buck wants a slugging 1B man in the middle of this lineup. I wouldn't be shocked to see us add some FA pitching as well. This is shaping up to be the 1995-1996 offseason if things go right.

  11. Angelos told Showalter he can be manager, GM, or hold both positions. He'd be the first since Whitey Herzog with the early-80s Cardinals.

  12. Personally I think this is good news and is probably what Showalter had in mind when he took the position in the first place.

  16. Look, I don't agree with the guy, but he didn't start the thread. Other people started the thread and made little smirking remarks about how some unnamed person [which we all knew who they were talking about] wouldn't be able to deal with the news. To me, THAT is trolling. Yes, predictably, he came in and expressed his point of view which very, very few other people believe in. But expressing an extreme minority point of view, even repeatedly, isn't "trolling" in my mind. Little smirking comments about how the latest piece of news will be received by "someone" we don't agree with -- t

  18. You're just...you're the worst. Adding "IMO" to a bunch of berserk imaginary BS doesn't make it less berserk and imaginary.

  19. http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/baseball/2011/09/06/2011-09-06_with_peter_angelos_in_the_way_buck_showalter_is_powerless_to_restore_the_oriole_.html Everyone understands the Orioles struggles except Angelos. Here is my favorite quote: "Oriole insiders say that MacPhail, like all the others, operated under the severe handicap of an intractable, clueless owner and an equally incompetent holdover player development department that owes its perpetuity to telling Angelos what he what he wants to hear."

  20. I'm safe so far but all of my neighboring towns have been evacuated. A lot of my coworkers are homeless right now. It's madness. Stay safe all.

  21. It gets annoying around here when posters take the time to write up a long, well-conceived post, just to have another nimrod poster come behind them to point out that they spelled 'then' instead of 'than' or some silly misplaced or misused punctuation one time in a huge post. Kinda takes away from the quality of the board, and something that is borderline worthy of a mod infraction, IMO.

  22. I don't want to hear "that's how it works". That's the key sign of a broken system.

  23. Look at this guy. He's leaving his family for a week to go to Disney World and he's kicking it off with a golf tournament. Are your parents playing in that too?
