    100 wins!!

    At least we get the #2 pick if we are going to be bad let's beef up our farm system to build for a Houston like dynasty. Why be 70-92 and get mediocre draft picks. So in a way we had a successful year.
  2. I am not sad for him, If he wants pity then give back the money he got?
  3. Why don't the O"a use CD as a coach since they have to pay him anyway and it opens up a roster spot? I would hate to release him and he hits 50 homers somewhere else, while we pay him and he performs because he has no pressure for his new team to prove to them like he has to justify $160 mil for O's.
  4. I remember Tom Phoebus no hitter. He came up as a surprise prospect. That is what I remember him for. Another chip from my childhood goes away. I hate to hear of my childhood players passing.
  5. He won't give up on the mountain of money he got.
  6. I know we all want the O's to win everyday including me. But what is the point of winning now when we have no chance this year. My point is winning now will cost us a first round pick. Right now Detroit is the leader and Kansas City right behind us. How would we feel in 3-4 years Detroit picks a Mike Trout type player and we will say winning those few meaningless games could cost us a once in a lifetime player, playing for Detroit. To me winning that first round pick is more important than winning a few extra games now.
  7. My point is this team is looking at a 110 loss season, it was a no brainer to trade Cashner for prospects for a free agent to be next year going to be 33. I can't see anyone dispute this.
  8. Is there a run down on the O's International signings today? I am pissed how the Yankees can get the best player? It is all about the money. I have the right to my feelings.
  9. What about winning the 2020 #1 pick?
  10. Orioles, Adley Rutschman Close To Deal June 24th, 2019 at 9:27am CST • By Steve Adams The Orioles are close to a deal with No. 1 overall draft pick Adley Rutschman, reports Jon Heyman of MLB Network (via Twitter). The former Oregon State catcher’s No. 1 overall slot carries a value of $8.42MM. Rutschman isn’t the only top O’s pick on whom there’s news today, however; MLB.com’s Jim Callis reports (also via Twitter) that the team’s second-rounder, Gunnar Henderson, has agreed to a deal worth $2.3MM. A high school shortstop out of Alabama, Henderson will receive a bonus that is well north of his No. 42 selection’s $1.771MM slot value. More to come
