  1. IMO, Adam Jones is as likeable as a human being as you’ll find. When you consider that he’s a professional athlete, it makes him even more impressive.

  5. I'm done. I will say this this. You all giving me more down votes then you gave him for his veiled racist comment is sad. If you look at his other recent posts too, 90% of them are confrontational. Not argumentative, confrontational.There's no place on this board (or in life) for that kind of hate.

  7. Ummm.....no. That's just not even close to being true. February 6, 2012 Traded Jeremy Guthrie to the Colorado Rockies. Received Jason Hammel and Matt Lindstrom. August 26, 2012 Traded Matt Lindstrom and cash to the Arizona Diamondbacks. Received Joe Saunders and cash. November 25, 2013 Traded Devin Jones (minors) to the San Diego Padres. Received Brad Brach. July 31, 2014 Traded Eduardo Rodriguez to the Boston Red Sox. Received Andrew Miller. August 30, 2014 Traded Mark Blackmar (minors) and Miguel Chalas (minors) t

  8. I think people forget DD was the original wonderboy GM. He did a great job in Montreal acquiring talent through trades and internationally and did the same thing when he got to Boston. If he's left to do his thing, I have no doubt he'll get talent on this team. He was a scout and player development guy for many years before becoming a GM.

  10. I’m thinking DD is finally getting a chance to show what he can do. He built us up and the. Buck and Brady had their say in big time contracts that doomed us. In DD I trust. With the way DD is dealing I’d trust him to trade Gausman, Givens, Schoop, plus the free agents.

  11. Moving players with multiple years left on their deals would be a significant departure from previous Oriole behavior. I'll believe it when I see it.

  12. How appropriate that Britton's O's career ends with him sitting in the bullpen in a situation he would likely be pitching. They should bring in Ubaldo to pitch the 9th tonight.

  14. Why would you negative rep me for stating a fact? You're right - he's been decent at the plate - .338 OBP is solid. Just because it would have been one of the best OBP for any Orioles players shouldn't get us too excited, the O's are THAT bad. But, he's been pretty bad on defense. We have enough corner infielders like that - and more in the minors, like Mountcastle.

  15. I heard a quote from DD that the rebuild will extend through 2019 and “maybe” into 2020. But I wonder if it’s realistic for this franchise to rebuild that fast. If you think about it, the last Orioles rebuild really started when MacPhail traded Bedard and Tejada away in the 2007-08 offseason. That led to four more seasons of losing and we were selling pieces that entire time. Factor in that we don’t have any pieces to sell that are as in demand as Bedard was, and few in the Tejada range. The other thing is, much depends on how well you do with your high draft picks, and wh

  19. The return on this trade certainly exceeds what I was expecting. I like Zach but I wanted to trade him after 2016. This seems to be a nice return for a closer that has only pitched about 52 innings in 2 years.

  20. That "Dinner with John" story was planted in the press for a reason. I'm not sure what that reason is - but the Orioles Front Office intentionally wanted it out there for a reason.

  27. Scouting grades: Fastball: 60 | Slider: 55 | Changeup: 55 | Control: 50 | Overall: 50 In three years at UC Santa Barbara, Tate went from pitching three innings as a freshman to starring as a reliever as a sophomore to moving into the rotation and becoming the No. 4 overall pick in the 2015 Draft as a junior. After he signed with the Rangers for $4.2 million, his stuff regressed and he fell out of favor quickly. Texas dealt him with relief prospects Erik Swanson and Nick Green to get Carlos Beltran from the Yankees in July 2017, and while Tate has looked better with his new organization, h

  30. Britton and Givens for Lux, May and Puig. Done and done. I fear Givens might have his best days behind him. We need to bring more value to the deal than just a rental. I highly doubt that deal would happen but I would be doing anything to pry those two away from the Dodgers.

  31. What's fair? Has baseball ever been fair? What sports are fair? Remember the golden era before free agency, when money didn't matter, just a love of the game and whoever could build the best organization? From 1921-1964 the Yanks weren't in the World Series 15 times. The Yanks have had one season since the 1930s where they won fewer than 70 games. Remember when the powers-that-be decided that Baltimore didn't deserve a MLB team from 1903-1953? The Orioles have a $139M payroll, tens of millions more than the Braves, the Phillies, and on par with the Indians. It's not the fai

  33. Here is a good example of how analytics should work in regards to valuing a player, specifically Chris Davis at the time he was signing a new contract. This was published in SI in Jan 2016, right after his new deal was signed. ===== Orioles overspend with poor long-term investment in Chris Davis By Cliff Corcoran January 16, 2016 In reality, however, the Orioles likely lost regardless of whether or not Boras and Davis actually got them to increase the value of their offer. As I wrote a month ago, Davis is very simply a bad investment. Running Davis through our What Is

  36. Gausman isn't that young, isn't that controllable (2 years left), and Bundy, while a bit younger (though a few months from turning 26), is a guy with a history of injuries, with decreased velocity that is only going to decrease further. I would trade them both for a good package without hesitation. Gausman, if we could extend him and do something to actually develop him, I wouldn't mind keeping around--as he's much more likely to age well than Bundy--but we should be opening up talks right away if that's the case.

  37. Ryan is very strong, and likely to get a little bigger as most men do. My son has worked out with him on occasion with a personal trainer. Ryan is a beast in the gym. There is something to what you speak of. Pitchers, like Blaine Knight, who are thin are often projected to get bigger and stronger. And yes, they can add some velo, but it isn’t usually much. It’s my understanding they need to get a bit bigger and stronger to help them have endurance through the long season and maintain their velo deeper. As far as Ryan, it is not a strength issue. It is mechanical issues and flexibility to

  40. One reason I like this trade. Would the senior Angelos EVER allow his star closer to be traded to the Yankees? More evidence that 1.) not only are his sons calling the shots but 2.) their mode of operation just might be different.
